Heilemann: Obama Will Replace Hope with Fear

In case there are still any naive folks walking the planet who think they were right when they fell for the Hope & Change thing, here is liberal journalist John Heilemann explaining that Hope & Change have been discarded in favor of the Politics of Fear in 2012.

You are going to see an onslot of negative advertising... we've never seen... it's fear this time, 2012 it's fear of the alternative and it's five hundred million dollars of negative ads run against Mitt Romney or John Huntsman or Michele Bachmann or Rick Perry...

The core difference between 2008 and 2012 is going to be the politics of hope, which we saw in 2008, versus the politics of fear in 2012. They won’t call it that, but so much of this campaign in terms of driving turnout among all these groups, is going to be about making the Republican alternative totally unacceptable.
