Fox Guest Starts The Negative Fear Campagin Against Mid Term Democratic Candidates

Reported by Donna - May 8, 2006

Today on Fox News Live with Bill Hemmer (12 - 1 p.m.) between all of the Fox News Alerts for brush fires in Florida they did manage a little bit of political haranguing. To speak about the midterm elections Hemmer had Brad Blakeman (former deputy assistant to President Bush) and Vic Fazio (former Congressman, D - Cal).

Right from the start Blakeman started attacking the Democrats in a negative and fear conducive way, the only way the Republicans know how to operate. It's worked good for them in the past, so they'll stick with it until it stops working.

While Vic Fazio spoke about the problems that the Republicans might have in bringing the moderate conservatives in to agree with their policy in a polite, debate forum, Blakeman went right for the jugular.

Blakeman said that the American people ought to be afraid of the Democrats getting a majority in either the House or the Senate because then they would have higher taxes and the war on terror would become an afterthought.

Comments: I really hate to say typical, Republican, fear mongoring, but I have to. What else would you call it? Why don't they get a bullhorn and shout it from the rooftops, 'We are ruining this country in terms of lives and healthcare/education/economics/enviornment, etc. here and in Iraq, but watch out for those Democrats, they'll raise your taxes and pay no attention to the war on terror.'

Like the Republicans have done anything to keep us safer here at home. The ports and the borders remain unprotected 4 1/2 years after 9/11. Taxes? Yes, we know. They've been cut for the top 3%. That's the Republicans - really helping out the everyday American. Sounds to me like the Republicans don't have a plan or a position and they are going to stick with negative politics.
