Hillary Clinton Plays the Politics of Fear
With nothing left to offer, Hillary Clinton is pulling a page out of the Karl Rove/George Bush playbook and playing the politics of fear. In her new campaign ad Clinton message is basically “vote for me or some creepy unnamed threat will get your children.”
Here is the ad text:
It’s 3am and your children are safe and asleep. But there’s a phone in the White House and it’s ringing. Something’s happening in the world. Your vote will decide who answers that call. Whether it’s someone who already knows the world’s leaders…knows the military…someone tested and ready to lead in a dangerous world. It’s 3 am and your children are safe and asleep. Who do you want answering the phone?
