The fall of liberalism: From "Only thing we have to fear is fear itself" to fear mongering

Not a fear mongerer
In his first inaugural address, Franklin D. Roosevelt famously remarked, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself"

How far has liberalism fallen? President Obama is resorting to fear mongering, claiming that tens of thousands of teachers will be laid off and parents will have to scramble to find child care for their kids if the sequester--which was his idea--goes through. Obama is also fanning the fear embers by stating that nearly 100,000 civilian defense workers--in just Virginia--will lose their jobs.

What else? Arizona, Obama says, will lose funds for senior meals. Airports, the White House purports, will be less safe.

What happened to Hope?

Oh, even if the sequestration goes through, federal spending will still increase.

Even the normally Obama-supportive AP is decrying the sky-is-falling rhetoric.
