Yeah, that is what it was. But itís all relative. Bush and the GOP built up this culture of fear, predicated on the idea that we were under constant attack and if you expressed any doubt about the way they were handling things, you were the enemy. So you know, the French and the Dixie Chicks were suddenly the enemy.
Itís those kind of authoritarian tactics that gave us Trump.
