    Default The politics of fear

    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.

    The lefts whole point was that they were above that. It doesn't appear so. It is a tactic they have always used.

    Global warming: The seas will rise and life as we know it will end.

    This downturn: Catastrophe.

    It appears the left is really a bunch of one trick ponies - the politics of fear.

    BTW, nice pic of the former VP!

    You have been seeing it (closing Gitmo, actually consulting with the other party, passing a stimulus package, overturning some of the more ridiculous Bush executive orders, a press conference 2 weeks rather than 9 months into the presidency, etc, etc) and you have been b*tching and moaning because you don't like it.

    It's only been 2 weeks. There is a LOT more to come. And, once Franken is seated that's one less 'centrist' Republican that the Senate hast to pick up to avoid a filibuster.

    I have a feeling you won't be welcoming a lot of the 'change' that is coming.

    KEEP the change thank you very much


    Obomo's petulant little speech and canned questions from chosen reporters were really pathetic. He is a narcissist through and through and his tone rings with insincereity.

    Julie, you've come through again with a very compelling argument.
    - Obama is mean to Republicans
    - Obama is a Muslim

    Hard to argue with crazy like that.
