Bush didn't use fear and hysteria; what he did was inform the American people about reality - or, at least, reality as he got it from the CIA.

Because Clinton's CIA crew gave him incorrect information, he was accused of lying - which he did not. (You don't really think that presidents do their own espionage and intelligence gathering, do you?) If Presidents "lie" when their info is incorrect - how about a president who assures us that, if we let him spend a few trillion more dollars, unemployment won't get any higher than 8 percent?

Now, who uses fear and hysteria? Remember the "Mediscare" add of the old woman being pushed off a cliff in a wheel chair?

        Personally, I find disgusting the way this administration throws allies under the bus and kisses the arses of our enemies.

            I think almost all dictators believe that when they break the rules and work havoc on their people, they're doing so for the good of the people. Obama included. Difference is, I'm convinced that he's ... more

          Removing any excuses whatsoever from what Obama has done to this country. And heaping even more blame on Senators Kerry and Clinton.
