Don’t answer the door…

A co-worker sent this video to me today.  Like a scene from a bad horror film, could this be the future if Obama gets re-elected this fall? Or worse, the Democrats take back the House of Representatives? I don’t know about you, but I don’t think we can afford 4 more years. [H/T PowerLineBlog]
