Van Jones: This Is A "Fear Election" (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | September 4, 2012 | RealClearPolitics

Van Jones says this year "feels like a fear election" in which both sides are afraid of each other. Jones says he is confident that people will "rally back" to Obama because they realize that he is a president that "at least tried."

"Well, it's definitely a different election," Jones said on MSNBC this morning. "But the last time it was a big hope election, this time it feels more like a fear election; both sides afraid of what the other side will do. But I think what's going to happen, and you're seeing it happen already, people are starting to rally back to the president."

Great, let’s all listen a big-shot leader in the Black Klan. There will be a day when these Black Klan punks will be held to account for their venomous acts.

Gee...if we give prizes for trying, Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter would have had second terms. Jones isn’t implying that the First Black President is a little slow, is he? That would be raaaaacist.....

Nope, it’s a hate, loathing, disgust and revulsion election.

The Obamadork is a lying fake, with the IQ of an burned out vacuum tube, and the appeal of a pile of doggy doo in the middle of the road.

Shove it up your smelly Obama, Obama.

That is right. It is a “Fear election” since the Democrats are intellectually and morally bankrupt. All they have left is trying to scare people into voting for them.

...”Jones says he is confident that people will “rally back” to Obama because they realize that he is a president that “at least tried.””...

This fool, Jones, is of the generation that was given trophies for participation, gold stars for effort, and is the vanguard of the self-esteem movement. So too, is Obama. This statement illustrates very well a major societal problem in the USA. Now, “trying” is deemed equivalent - perhaps superior in some circles (eg, Obama) - to actually producing results (eg, Romney). It’s a stark contrast....

The fear is real. Both sides realize the American people are PISSED!!

And that is not good for any incumbent politician, from either side.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

The vast majority of Romney "supporters" can't come up with positives about Romney but instead express fear of how bad Obama will be in a second term.

Obama can't run on his record, so he'll have to demonize his opponent.

This is probably the most clear "lesser of two evils" election this nation has ever had. If none-of-the-above were on the ballot, it would win a clear majority. Such a circumstance just sets the election up as a negative, fear-mongering campaign.

I agree....My "enthusiasm" for Romney is more just because of the fact that at this juncture, he is the only one who can defeat the Kenyan.....But I guarantee, if he loses, I am going to be just as pissed at him as I am with McLame.

Van only has evil his heart for America. This devil should fear the people. If there is ever a search for guilty parties, he will be facing a treason charge.

This has absolutely turned into a “Fear Election”. I fear that I won’t be able to have enough money to fill up my gas tank. I fear that I may lose my job. I fear that I won’t be able to afford groceries to feed my family! It’s definitely an election based on fear and I pray that fear drives the current empty chair occupier back to Chicago.

Obama saw nothing wrong with appointing a fellow Marxist to high public office. Four years later, he gives himself an "incomplete" grade.

“At least I tried.”

You know what they say. That’s all a steer can do.
