If the Left wants to blast conservatives for fear-mongering in their efforts against terrorism ("kill the terrorists over there before they come here"), for border enforcement ("criminals and other 'evil doers' could sneak over our porous border") or against government health care ("death panels," "government intrusion," "tax-payer-funded abortions"), then they should lecture the President for this:
Everyone in this room knows what will happen if we do nothing. Our deficit will grow. More families will go bankrupt. More businesses will close. More Americans will lose their coverage when they are sick and need it most. And more will die as a result. We know these things to be true.
