Bush to Americans: Be Afraid...Again (Twice in One Week?!)

Here we go again. Barely has Bush tried to frighten Americans about a "pandemic" that hasn't materialized, but now we'll have the airwaves tied up tonight with another round of hype. Listen or watch for the text of the speech. He'll use the word terror over and over. And he'll menace with his near growl. The subtext will be: "Be afraid." And Bush will watch eagerly to see if his numbers improved, since he tried to seize the fear index again. More on this topic tomorrow.
