From "nothing to fear but fear itself" to "everything to fear if we lose".

"If we don't vote, believe it or not they are going to file articles of impeachment against our President.  If we don't vote, the street in front of your house is not going to get fixed.  If we don't vote, we're going to have hungry children across this country". 

- Rep. Marcia L. Fudge (D) OH 11th Congressional

First Lady Michelle Obama sent out a mass campaign email through the DNC that read, in part:
Friend -- You can’t hold your breath and wait to see who wins the Senate.
It’s too close for that. We need your help immediately.
I’ll put it frankly: If we lose these midterm elections, we’ll just see more obstruction, more lawsuits and talk about impeachment, and more votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act or even shut down the government.
Sadly this strategy was predicted in a Daily Beast Colum in February 2014.   I actually discussed in April the many issues that I had hoped would be the focus of the mid-term elections but at that time felt the big issue would be "fear" and more directly the cries of "racism" would be the main talking point. 

It's to bad that this is happening.  I wonder if Rep. Fudge also knows that Pres. Obama, while I disagree with him, is my President too.
