Obama scare, not Obamacare. Fear is a powerful motivator and the GOP have used it for eight years to win votes and lead voters astray. Witness the welcome yesterday that President Obama received in the Canadian Parliament. Canadians are not subject to the daily dose of fear that we Americans experience from right-wing talk radio and the biased reporting on FOX and allies. A lack of fear gives Canadians a clearer view of the real world and Obama’s place in it. They want more of it.
