<p>Offering his initial thoughts on Tuesday&rsquo;s GOP presidential debate on the 11:00 p.m. Eastern edition of CNN&rsquo;s <em>AC360</em>, CNN political commentator and Hillary Clinton super PAC head Paul Begala complained that Republicans possess <strong>&ldquo;dominant emotion&rdquo; </strong>of <strong>&ldquo;fear&rdquo; </strong>that they&rsquo;ve somehow used to instill fear in Americans following recent terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino.&nbsp;</p>

<p>The former Clinton administration staffer declared: <strong>&ldquo;I thought that the dominant emotion that all of the candidates were trying to tap into was fear. Republicans, especially in America, are fearful especially after the attack in San Bernardino, the slaughter in Paris.&rdquo;</strong></p>
