    People have short memories. Another painful terror hit within the U.S. and Americans will be clamoring for another good butt-whipping somewhere.

    Neither one of us has enough information to judge properly.

    How is this somehow laughable? We have moved the emphasis from a war we should never have fought, and moving it to a war that many of us find to be of high importance. This is a step in the right direction. Care to ofer more than just laughter...you know, like maybe debate, or an actual position?

    Indeed it does, and those who think their side is immune represent a fertile breeding ground for authoritarians to sow their crops.

    They weren't out protesting because the war was being prosecuted poorly. They were against it in toto.

    The war in Iraq, yes. We are drawing down (slowly) in Iraq. That to me is "going better".

    Granted if you want to go by the metric of "how many google links" there are....

    There were 431 million hits for Anti War Protests 2008. More than a 4:1 jump from the time leading up to election to the point after the election.

    Sheehan: Pro-Obama media want the anti-war movement to go away | Washington Examiner
    This week ABC News anchorman Charles Gibson, who extensively covered anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan's demonstrations against George W. Bush in 2005, said "Enough already" when it comes to Sheehan's plans to protest next week at Martha's Vineyard, where President Barack Obama will be vacationing.

    Now Sheehan has responded. "I am sure that he just wants me to go away like most of the rest of the anti-war movement has done under the Obama presidency," Sheehan writes at her website.

    One of the things I hear quite often from people from all over the political spectrum is: “Why don’t you just go away, you’ve had your 15 minutes of fame.”

    Good thing I get to play my consistency card again: I have always said she was kinda nutty, nothing has changed now.

    Sure, for some protesting their man with the hot potato is not a good thing. However, people tire of these wannabe populists who try to stir the pot for media attention.
