    It is news. There was a time, not long ago, when the streets would have been filled with tens of thousands of protesters.

    Just imagine if McCain had been elected and had exactly the same policy in Iraq and Afghanistan as 0bama has today.

    There wouldn't be 100 in DC and 80 in NYC. There would be tens of thousands. But since 0bama is their guy.......

    You know, your thread would be much more credible if you left out the birther stuff.

    Re: Anti-war protesters arrested near White House

    I am not so sure that all Liberals are supporting Obama. One of the biggest Bush bashers anywhere, Cindy Sheehan, is using irony to blast the crap out of Obama. And guess what, her column actually makes sense, even if I don't agree with all the reasons she gives.

    Read Sheehan's column before continuing.

    Here's the thing about war - Protesters aren't necessarily Liberals, and Liberals don't always side with the president, regardless of political party. The same can be said about Conservatives. Remember the web site antiwar.com? It is a site that was started by Conservatives and Libertarians, who were really pissed at Bill Clinton getting involved in the Balkans. And what about the web site Americans Against World Empire? How about the web site Conservatives for Peace? A member from that organization wrote this article, which was published on World Net Daily. All Conservatives. So the left doesn't hold a monopoly on being against war.

    The point I am making is that there are hypocrites on both the right and the left, who do give a damn about which party is in power before making a decision to bash the president over war policy. And there are those, on both the right and the left, who are honest, either in support of wars or against them. Just lumping everybody into categories, such as Liberal and Conservative, and using those labels to categorize all into just those 2 categories, actually misrepresents political leans. There is no "one size fits all" for either Liberals or Conservatives, unless one just hates either Liberals or Conservatives for the sake of hating Liberals or Conservatives. Unfortunately, there are way too many people who hate first and ask questions later. Such is what American politics has descended into.

    Some Liberals, such as Cindy Sheehan, I actually have respect for, because their views don't change when a Democrat becomes president, and there are plenty of Liberals, like Sheehan, who are bashing Obama as hard as they bashed Bush. Of course there are also Liberals who only bash the other party, while giving their own politicians a free pass on the same things. Those are the Liberals I have no respect for.

    And the same applies to Conservatives. There are some who are on Obama's side, as they were on Bush's side for doing the same. Although I strongly disagree with them, I do respect them because they are consistent, and not party hacks. To those conservatives who are bashing Obama over Libya, who also bashed Bush over Iraq, they not only have my respect, but also my support, as I believe like they do. The US has no business in Libya, and I can say it with a straight face. I didn't support Bush's war in Iraq (although I did support Afghanistan), and I'll be damned if I support Obama's war in Libya either.

    To all those Liberals and Conservatives, who believe that war only matters if the other party is in power, and you guys all know who you are, I have a very short message for you.....

    Take a hike.

    Because I see how Obama takes care of matters. Especially forign matters. With responsibility. Unlike Iraq. And Palin? Dude I rather have Michael Palin as President than Sarah. And Im not kidding. Ive never seen such irresponsible **** than Bush was in office. And I just not voted for him twice... I campaigned hard for him. And looking back, although I personally like the man.... he was a titanic ****-up in office. Either way I want Ron Paul in office much more than Bush or Obama.

    You call bombing a transatlantic flight "coming to heel"?

    Poor, poor republicans. So picked on. Sad. it's really sad.

    Anyway, some are protesting. This is to be expected. But lets do keep prospective. Killing was on going by the real tyrannt. It wasn't years afterwards, and this was done within the UN.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Neither poor or sad but thanks for your concern.

    Of course this is to be expected from lefties. Obama is their guy so there are no protesters to speak of.

    Re: Anti-war protesters arrested near White House

    More than 100 anti-war protesters, including the man who leaked the Pentagon Papers, were arrested outside the White House in demonstrations marking the eighth anniversary of the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

    isn't that a felony? how did he get out so quickly?
