The latest email from Organizing for Action! stokes generic fears, to get supporters to reach into their specific wallets.
I want to make one thing absolutely clear:
We’re up against a whole lot more than just opposition in Congress.
We’re up against interest groups with money to burn — organizations willing to drop every last penny they have to stop President Obama’s agenda in its tracks. We’re already seeing it on gun violence, and immigration reform — they’re going to spend millions to throw a wrench in the works of progress.
You can be damned sure that this is not going to stop.
What, opponents of Obama’s agenda should just lay down and die? Is that what you want, Messina?
Organizing for Action is going to shift the balance of power in Washington back to real people. People like you have shown over and over again that no amount of spending can stop millions of Americans calling for change.
Says the group behind the billion dollar presidency, funded by rich leftists.
It’s going to take each of us rolling up our sleeves, getting to work, and chipping in what we can when we can.
We have our first fundraising deadline this weekend. Donate $5 or more right now to become a founding member of this organization:
This is going to be fun. If we do this right, the other side won’t know what hit ’em.

I realize that refuting the facts presented in these emails doesn’t really do any good. Such emails aren’t meant for a wider audience, they’re meant to prod Obama’s supporters into keeping motivated and active and continuing to donate to keep OFA’s lights on. They’re for suckers, basically. And they work.
