Fear mongers

A former commandant of the Marine Corps speaks out against fear mongering right wingers: "The American people are understandably fearful about another attack like the one we sustained on Sept. 11, 2001. But it is the duty of the commander in chief to lead the country away from the grip of fear, not into its grasp. Regrettably, at Tuesday night's presidential debate in South Carolina, several Republican candidates revealed a stunning failure to understand this most basic obligation. Indeed, among the candidates, only John McCain demonstrated that he understands the close connection between our security and our values as a nation.

God help us if Giuliani is our next president. It will be more of the same BS we've had to deal with for the last 8 years. Another fear monger that is more concerned with appearances than serving.
