Politics of Fear - Now it's the Economy

So now the fear card is the economy.

McCain won't debate unless we rush to a deal. Bush threatens that "the entire economy will fail" if we don't approve a rushed bill.

Why does this sound just like the administration's demands for carte blanche because things are so dour? What if we substituted 'terrorism' and 'axis of evil' for 'economic crisis'? Sound familiar?

Fear = Americans giving up their power and wholesale sell-offs. Nothing's changed, just the focus of the fear.

What do you think?

(Personally, I think McCain is scared as hell to debate Obama and this is his better option. He gets to look like he cares and he bows out under the guise of doing something for the country.)
