Return of the Politics of Fear

The GOP is falling back on their old reliable "Politics of Fear."

They've launched an ad on the Internet that hits cable channels this weekend. It features images of terrorists and their quotes promising to hit us with suitcase nukes.

There's no narration, only a ticking timebomb in the background. Problem is, it could backfire on the misfiring GOP.

Recent polling shows Democrats are more trusted to deal with terrorism. Without a link to candidates -- the ad may come across as pushing Democrats. (AP via Yahoo! News)
