A key component of the concerted agitation to bring on change was Chomsky's accusation that the hated Bush used fear mongering to manufacture consent.
In theory, since that hated Bush is on the scrap heap of history, change should have elevated us beyond fear mongering.
It is possible that Chomsky is nothing but a partisan who agitates by projecting the method onto his opponents.
Anyway, I love this clip from Pelosi. The math is mind boggling. If we are losing 500 million jobs a month because of the hated Bush, then we will wipe out all jobs in the US for the this and the next generation before the quarter is through.
