    I'd call it seeding. This is not mere projection from the GOP. But by seeding the dialog with these kinds of extreme accusations and making the opposing side (that would be you) vehemently condemn such, they make it much harder for you to do something about it when they later put what they've been accusing you of in motion.

    Remember GWB? If anyone could be accused of putting an agenda i.e. might makes right similar to Hitler's  it would be GWB and his neocons.

    And I think GWB was just a starter. Beware of Mitt.

      But on a tactical level, seeding, yes, or preemption.  Confuse the innocent and paralyze the thoughtful.  It blinds with its wrongness -- the blood runs cold -- and that's the point.

        The people you're dealing with are unable to feel guilt.
        They are cold and calculating and you'd better keep that in mind.

        The people you're dealing with don't believe what they publicly say they believe. They just want you to believe that that is what they believe. Capice?
