    What exactly are you fearful of? I don't walk around in fear, alert, but not fear.

    Keith is just another mouthpiece for the dems. Same as Coulter, O'Reilley, for the R's and Matthews for the dems. No original ideas just boring tirades.

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigtht!

    Mathews is often more right than left and he is a boring pompous asshole.

    Do you deny that Bush has used the fear card continuously since 9-11? That is what his talk was about.

    That so many people believe so many wrong things, attests to the power of Cheney administration propaganda. George is only his sidekick. 'Fight on poor fools, as we loot the coffers of America, remember you are being attacked. Be scared be very scared.'

    "Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." Hermann Goering

    How many I wonder bought masking tape and plastice wrap. Fear has great power.

    The masters of the "fear" card are the Liberals. They use it on every issue. Their tactic is simple, if they scare each sub group and convince them only they have the answer, they get their vote. The Dems been doing it for YEARS.

    Note Ray, that he didn't deny what you said. Bush does play the fear card. He just tried to divert the topic.

    Olberman is a talentless hack. He fancies himself a modern day Edward R. Murrow, but he couldn't carry Murrow's jock. He's a failed sportscaster who has found a niche spouting hateful diatribes that find favor with sufferers of Bush derangement syndrome. He is no better than Hannity or Coulter, perhaps even worse as no one calls him on his crap. He gets a free pass.
