I Want You All To Be As Afraid As You Can Be

Bush Warns Americans They Are ‘Still Not Safe’.

Contrast this with a real leader, in a time of real emergency. FDR comforted the country in his inauguration address, saying, “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

(By the way, looking for a good reference for FDR’s quote, I discovered that the Right is sponsoring a number of websites accusing FDR of responsibility for the Pearl Harbor attack! What are they up to now, teaching kids this stuff? Some of the sites also accuse Kennedy of “lying” about the Cuban Missile Crisis.)
