Obama's Politics of Fear
I guess I could have just as easily made the title "Fear of Politics" which would include both political parties, both political ideologies. But, it seems the Left has a patent on fear-mongering. For example, no sooner had Mitt Romney named Paul Ryan as his Republican Vice-Presidential candidate then the Obama Zombie attacks come out in full bloom. Of course, if you listen to the Democrats, Paul Ryan is going to push granny right off the cliff into oblivion. Then there were attacks that stated Paul Ryan would cut funding from Medicare! First, just to show how preposterous this is, Paul Ryan is not at the top of the ticket. Mitt Romney is the Republican Presidential candidate, not Paul Ryan. Mitt Romney has not bought completely into Ryan's budget cuts. Secondly, let's name the ONLY president to cut funding from Medicare. Take your time. Give up? None other than the saintly and blessed PRESIDENT OBAMA and his Socialist lackeys cut over $700 billion from Medicare to help fund Obamacare (which, by last count, is going to cost over twice that amount). Let me state that once again. PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HIS SOCIALIST LACKEYS CUT OVER $700 BILLION FROM MEDICARE TO HELP FUND OBAMACARE. You will never see that in the press who are 100% behind the Leftist politics of the Democratic Party.
Goofy Joe Biden, alleged Vice-President of the United States, stated yesterday that "They're (Republicans) are going to put y'all back in chains" in referencing Mitt Romney's comments to unchain Wall St. from the clutches of the Democratic Leftists. This is the kind of rhetoric that the Romney campaign is going to face in the months leading to the Presidential Election. God forbid that the focus turns to the "private sector economy that is doing fine" or "unemployment that is now in it's record 41st month above 8%". No, the Democrats know they can't win on the two big issues that concern Americans most. Instead, they have to focus on the negative tactics of politics. The mudslinging and personal attacks (such as calling Romney a "murderer") are only going to get worse.
This is the first election Obama has ever been involved in which he has had to actually work to try and win. They are going to increase the politics of fear with the polls showing that Paul Ryan is actually helping Romney, not hurting him. The Obama campaign is like a cornered fox, striking and hissing out in every direction. They will sling mud in the hopes that something will stick. This is the only campaign strategy the Obama Zombies have right now. However, after Labor Day, when the campaign really kicks in, the Democrats will have no choice but to respond to the attacks that are surely coming their way on the economy from Republicans. It will be interesting to see the Democratic response at that time. No doubt, the response will be more of the same of political fear-mongering because, once again, that is all the Democrats have in their arsenal.
