    Gotta love how the media kept up the running casualty count the entire time Bush was president, and dropped it when Obama moved in. It gives the impression that people are no longer dying in Afghanistan and Iraq. Until something happens that is so bad the media cannot ignore it, like the 30 people dying in the attempt to rescue the Rangers that got pinned down this weekend.

    The strange thing is that the numbers do not support that interpretation.

    Did the country stop caring after Obama got elected, or was there another reason the media dropped the casualty count?
