More on Fearmongering, Ted Kennedy and who's trying to call up the big bad wolf
The Kerry campaign wants the voters to believe the Republicans have only one strategy, fear:
Edwards renewed his charge that the Republicans are "fear-mongering" by suggesting that al-Qaida would prefer that the Democrats win.Meanwhile, Ted Kennedy had this to say:
"Let me say this in very simple language. For them to exploit one of the greatest tragedies in American history for personal gain is wrong."
Meanwhile, he said, the administration continues to insist that the country is safer now because of the war. But Americans "deserve to hear more from our president than happy talk like that," said Kennedy. "The war in Iraq has made the mushroom cloud more likely, not less likely.And then there is Kerry himself, stirring up fears of a draft under George Bush:
Answering a question about the draft that had been posed at a forum with voters, Kerry said: "If George Bush were to be re-elected, given the way he has gone about this war and given his avoidance of responsibility in North Korea and Iran and other places, is it possible? I can't tell you."Oh, and let us not forget the Kerry campaign's constant warnings about George Bush's secret plans.
Truth is, I think, is that the more nervous they make the voters, the more they probably push people into voting for Bush, who seems much more like a leader who they can trust and who makes them feel secure than Mr. Flipflop....
