    Now That Obama is President What Happened to the Anti War Movement?

    Ha! When Bush was in office it was "Bush is a War Criminal and we should pull out now". Now the Anti War crowd is ...... well ....... no where to be found. Thats despite the fact that Obama raised the number of troops in Afghanistan. I guess war was used as a way to attack Bush but now that Bush is no longer president there is no need march on washington? This shows you how dishonest the anti war movement was. War is only bad until a socialist is in office. It reminds me of the time the socialist/communist anti war organizations of WWII changed their mind about war overnight after the NAZI's invaded the USSR.

    They went into hiding.

    Turns out they were just anti-BUSH-war.

    War and mass-murder just tastes better when a democrat is doing it.

    Hypocrites. They didn't give a damn about the war. It was just a political ploy to ridicule someone that isn't one of their own.

    Same thing that happened to all the conservatives who worried about the deficit and less freedom when Bush was in charge - they rolled over without a peep.

    We are basically out of Iraq. Obama increased the troop levels in Afghanistan and I thought that was a stupid idea and said so as much on these boards. So, are you referring to a specific group of anti-war protestors, or are you simply painting with your broad brush?
