Stolen From Another Blog As The President Continued The Politics Of Fear Today

Keith: "More over, Mr. Bush, you are accomplishing in part what Osama Bin Laden and others seek — a fearful American populace, easily manipulated, and willing to throw away any measure of restraint, any loyalty to our own ideals and freedoms, for the comforting illusion of safety."

It’s not only insulting that Bush once said "they hate us for our freedoms" and then proceeded to strip away those freedoms with such things as the Patriot Act and the warrantless wiretapping, but he also constantly says how the key tactic of the terrorist is fear, while his administration is out on a daily basis delivering speeches that are geared towards scaring us.
