Obama and FUD tactics
Over at RedState, another "former Hillary campaign staffer" has outed the Obama campaign and its use of FUD tactics. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, FUD stands for Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt, most famously used by Microsoft against the Open Source community. While I cannot verify its veracity, it dovetails with the post over at HillBuzz, and is consistent with Obama's campaign tactics in Illinois. Why is this important? Obama knows he's behind in several key states, and thus is sowing discord and uncertainty among Republicans to prevent them from voting.
