    It would appear after 8 months in office that despite his campaign rhetoric to the contrary, Obama is just as willing as his predecessor to peddle fear to help him advance his agenda.

    So who's fear mongering is/was worse?

    Compare and contrast the fear mongering being perpetrated by Obama with that of Bush.

    Go.

    I dont recall any fear mongering by Bush. I never heard him say that people who opposed his policies needed to shut up. I don't recall his saying people were fear mongering when they opposed his policies. I never remember him stating that opposition to his appointees Condoleeza Rice and Colin Powell was motivated by racism.
    No, I don't.
    I do see every day Obama and his supporters making these exact claims.
    Anyone have some examples of fear mongering by Bush so we can compare? Anyone want to define "fear mongering" as opposed to pointing out potential problems that need addressing?

    When he said that people who created this mess (meaning healthcare) needed to shut up and step aside and let him craft a solution. The soundbite was all over so it won't be hard to find.
