Let's check out the video (via Tam at View From the Porch) and see how well Obama voters do in a simple test about the federal government.
I think that what Kerry really means is that he's afraid of an electorate that's actually paying attention, that is getting informed, and that is ready and willing to take action to finally rein in the bureaucracy and those that now think of themselves as the ruling elite of this country.
