this ad showing a child pulling daisy petals off morphing into a missile countdown and nuclear blast to leverage this fear in his run for the White House. I guess it worked, LBJ beat out Barry Goldwater. (What a shame!) The Johnson campaign was widely criticized for resorting to such tactics.
Now we have this ad from high-road Hillary trying to elevate the fear of today's world instability to the level of our old fear of Mutually Assured Destruction. I invite you to compare an contrast the two Democrat videos.
Gulf of Tonkin? Maybe dog torture? Vote for me or I'll pull the puppy's ears off!
Update: Obama weighs in. Barack Obama has released his own ad in response to Hillary's 'fear mongering'. [No link yet, but I saw it on Fox. I think.] In it, Barack appears to be saying that its time to quit worrying about the 9/11 Jihad attacks on the US. I guess we won the GWOT, and the Jihad is no longer a threat. Now thats real hope in action!
