no wars are ever "good" ... but I guess people find certain wars acceptable when their party is in power.

Most are all still camped out in Crawford awaiting President Bush to arrive. Someone should send them a tweet or something The rest have joined the various occupy protests and have no way to receive a tweet.

When Bush was in office a gaggle of sign bearers would regularly congregate at the intersection of State Route #20 and Main St. in Coupeville soliciting supportive honks from drivers by bouncing in and out of the traffic flow, screaming and yelling and generally making a nuisance of themselves in lue of working all day like most normal people.
THE DAY Obama got elected you could stand at this same intersection and easily hear a cricket chirping.
Figured when we bombed Libya there would surely be at least a few of them back but still just this....

there's a lot of left wingers who protested Bush's wars but are now oddly quiet with regards to Obama's escalations of conflicts.

Because to them, Obammy can do no wrong. Once again, like the outrage over Limbaugh, the left is VERY selective

Oh you're so wrong - regardless of which, Bush's wars were all a disaster - so far Obama has managed to off Osama Bin Laden and Gadahffi - both in double quick time.

I'm no advocate of wars, but at least Obama got the job done when he started it!
