Newsweek: Republicans Are Successful Because They Scare Voters
If any conservative still buys Newsweek or TIME they ought to be taken out back and pistol whipped.
The media has the serious hots for the Messiah and this year they will not let any bit of God d*mn truth get in the way of pushing their own personal Jesus through the front doors of the White House in ’09.
Look out Republicans and John McCain- It’s on!

The media onslaught against the Republicans and John McCain is officially on its way.
Today’s Newsweek article combines both the media’s deep hatred of Republicans and love for Messiah in one piece:
While Clinton veered between playing Queen Elizabeth I and Norma Rae, Obama and his team chugged along with a superior 50-state campaign strategy, racking up the delegates. If the candidate seemed weary and peevish or a little slow to respond at times, he never lost his cool. But the real test is yet to come. The Republican Party has been successfully scaring voters since 1968, when Richard Nixon built a Silent Majority out of lower- and middle-class folks frightened or disturbed by hippies and student radicals and blacks rioting in the inner cities. The 2008 race may turn on which party will win the lower- and middle-class whites in industrial and border states—the Democrats’ base from the New Deal to the 1960s, but “Reagan Democrats” in most presidential elections since then. It is a sure bet that the GOP will try to paint Obama as “the other”—as a haughty black intellectual who has Muslim roots (Obama is a Christian) and hangs around with America-haters.
Here’s some news for Newsweek—
Republicans don’t have to “paint” anything– Obama’s done a fine job all by himself.

To think that Republicans have to do more than lift a brush to paint Obama as “the other” guy who likes hanging around with America-haters is ridiculous.
The truth speak for itself.
STACLU provides of few examples of Democratic scare tactics that are more recent than 1968.
MacRanger calls the piece a journalistic ménage à trois.
