Fear in DC and loathing in the PRM

Fear is a visceral thing. Our ancestors cowered in caves with the fear of thunderstorms. We ran from wild beasts. this primordial emotion is used by politicians to evoke panic to press humanity into doing something, for lack of a better term, stupid.

I took some bashing in the comments section of an earlier post about how I don't particularly like the President of the United States to use fear to get what he wants. I'm not the only one to think this way.
In addressing this panic, the president of the United States must truly be the leader of the world — showing the way back to confidence.

Instead, Obama has been instrumental in purveying fear and spreading doubt. It is his pronouncements, reinforced by the developments they kindle and catalyze, that are destroying good businesses, bankrupting responsible people and wiping out even conservative financial institutions. Every time he speaks, he sends the markets down and stocks crashing. He doesn’t seem to realize that the rest of the world takes its cue from him. He forgets that he stands at the epicenter of power, not on the fringes campaigning for office. This ain’t Iowa.

Why does Obama preach gloom and doom? Because he is so anxious to cram through every last spending bill, tax increase on the so-called rich, new government regulation, and expansion of healthcare entitlement that he must preserve the atmosphere of crisis as a political necessity. Only by keeping us in a state of panic can he induce us to vote for trillion-dollar deficits and spending packages that send our national debt soaring.
This is the most media savvy President we have ever seen. Slick Willy has nothing on this cat. He has manipulated public opinion with a masters touch. His relentless campaign was nearly divine in how it whipped up the disenfranchised, the poor, and the rich liberals into a political firestorm to get him elected. Do don't think for one second that his is not fully cognizant of his emotional message. Obama and his staff know exactly what they are doing.

I wonder if he is vain enough to sow all this panic, all this doom and gloom just so if he pulls this off he looks like the greatest president since Lincoln? Then again, he wrote his memoirs before he took office.

If his plan is to sow chaos to make himself look better, then I fear he vastly underestimated how fragile the world markets are. Ireland, Greece, Estonia, Latvia, Bulgaria, Hungary, etc are all within a hairs breadth of going tits-up. Once these dominoes start to fall, I think it's not going to stop until it's gone around the world a few times.

So to sum up my feelings for the use of fear and chaos to motivate the people of these United States:

Fuck you, Mr. President.

Fear is the cause of stampedes. Startle one sheeple and the whole heard runs off a cliff and they have no idea why! 52% of americans refuse to educate themselves as we saw in November. BHO knows if he scares enough of us he can push through ANY agenda he chooses under the guise of "saving the country, or some other country!" FUCK YOU OBAMA, I'm not buying it!

Um, I would like to mention that both parties love to use the fear method of motivation.

it seems to be the primary way they keep us in line. Well, that and "bread and circuses". Why else do you think they put through more money for TVs?

Sigh. We're screwed no matter WHO is in office, and as long as they can keep us bickering over partisan bullshit, the longer it'll be before we pull our heads out and revolt.

Meadowlark has a valid point. But I still say Fuck YOU Mr. President! Of course, I am a bit more "tin foil hat" than you Natog, but I see all this as being put out by Obammy's handlers in order to further the NWO agenda. If the shoe fits.....

it's been obvious for a while that they are trying to destroy the country. the question is why. the amazing thing is that it's taking so long. people who get paid to give advice often tell you that if you've dug yourself into a hole, STOP DIGGING! (at least change direction) instead the criminal enterprise that's running the country is now digging down faster than ever. maybe they think they can dig all the way to china. after all, they're the best and the brightest! their mommies told them so.

Seems like you've been listening to Rush way too much. Good luck with that. The likes of Rush and Dick Morris will stir up your hate for the benefit of themselves and their cronies, not for the common good. Why does Obama preach doom and gloom? I know you know it, but things aren't too peachy in this republic of ours. Things were going down fast before he took office. Don't hate the messenger. And for god sake's stop listening to that pill popping wind bag.

By the way I still think it is far too harsh.
