The politics of fear
It is reasonably comical that some voted for Obama based on a belief that he was offering hope. They rejected what they called the politics of fear that was asserted to come from republicans and President George W. Bush.
It appears that Obama and democrat politicians have no hope at all. Their one political tactic is fear.
Democrats and liberals alike, you have wrought what you railed against!
Here is an Obama quote:
"If we do not move swiftly to sign the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law, an economy that is already in crisis will be faced with catastrophe," Obama said.
