Desperate tactics

Hillary Clinton is using FEAR to scare the voters.

Her closing ad in Pennsylvania markets FEAR with such reckless abandon that you'd think it was one of Karl Rove's wet dreams!

The first 20 seconds of this thirty-second spot shows the following images:

* Newspaper headline: STOCK MARKET CRASHES
* Pearl Harbor footage, with headline
* Newspaper with JFK calling Communism "World Wide Threat"
* Gas pump with sign NO GAS
* Berlin Wall protesters
* Osama Bin Laden
* New Orleans flooding
* Troops marching
* More gas pumps
* Abandoned factory
* Foreclosure sign in front of a house


This is Hillary's "message" to America:

There's no doubt in my mind that what her ad inadvertently portrays is the true content of her character!

Bill Clinton best summarized this tactic in 2004, when campaigning for John Kerry:

Bill Clinton: “Now one of Clinton’s Laws of Politics is this: If one candidate's trying to scare you and the other one's trying to get you to think; if one candidate's appealing to your fears and the other one's appealing to your hopes, you better vote for the person who wants you to think and hope. That's the best.”

Well said, Mr. President...well said.
