      But not to the extent that they're going to fall for the politics of fear and smear absent the sort of post-9/11 atmosphere of terror that made such a strategy successful, but which failed them in the 90's, and I predict will fail again if they're dumb enough to try.

      The GOP leadership is in a real bind. They know that trying to smear Obama & Dems too much will backfire with the center that they need to win in '12, yet the fleabaggers want to draw Dem blood, and will turn on the leadership if they don't give them some.

      They will draw blood--their own.
