Only cowards and old women

Did Lincoln tell the American people to fear the South? Did he tell them that Southerners were coming to their town to kill them? Did he try to make them afraid?

Did Washington tell his men the Brits were everywhere. Did he tell them how powerful the British are, that they could come and kill them any second.

FDR told us, "there is nothing to fear, but fear itself".

GWB's fear mongering is getting old. Americans don't like feeling powerless. It's backfiring. Americans don't want to hear how powerful and scary the enemy is. They want to hear about Osama dead.

Well Lincoln had a brain, and Americans had a longer attention span back then too.
