Exactly, when Bush talked about the realities of terrorism in the world, he was accused of fear-mongering. When Obama talks about the "realities" of our economic situation, he's being "transparent" with the American people. That's a blatant double-standard. Especially since Obama and Biden are deliberately overstating the problem. This is not the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, it's the worst economic crisis since Jimmy Carter.
If anything President Bush understated just how dangerous the world's terrorists are and trying to protect the American people from the brutal realities of Muslim Extremism might have hurt his case more than helped it.
