But Fear ItselfRoosevelt's words ring through the decades since.
But what does this Democratic President do, asks John Hinderaker.
While other factors no doubt predominate, it's hard to escape the conclusion that some part of that drastic decline is attributable to the near-hysteria emanating from the Executive Branch.
I think Matthew Kahn is asking a somewhat similar question.
The thing is, if Hinderaker is right about the motives, the strategy does not seem really to be working all that well. So maybe a more positive view would help.
