Neoconservative Propaganda Techiques Circa 2004

I know Obama has disappointed several people within the Democratic Party of late, but whenever I feel let down by my new President I just search the hard drive of my Mac and find any random clip featuring my old President.

I don't know who made this video, but it is an excellent example of how the Bush Administration, fellow Republicans, and even a Zell Miller (former Democrat), used 9-11, terrorism, and general fear-mongering during the 2004 Republican National Convention to scare their base and a sizable portion of the American public into re-electing George W. Bush. Note the repetition, as George W. Bush said during his famous failed attempt at privatizing social security via the stock market: "You Have To Keep Repeating Things To Catapult The Propaganda."
