    Hmm... Same thing I said when they called Iraq "Bush's War".

    PRESIDENT OBAMA'S clashes with the liberal base of his party are the kind of sporting event that Washington loves. But what Mr. Obama is confronting is less his party and more a stubborn reality that many in his party are unwilling to accept: There are forces in the world that continue to wage war.

    Obama is going to realize that a significant percentage of his supporters, perhaps the majority were not just against Iraq, they are anti-war. Any war, for any reason.

    Annie you're correct except Obama already knows, that's why NBC's Iraq war coverage went from hourly to zilch .........

    It happened when they could no longer spin that the surge was not working. Also had it been Bush that sent 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan, it would have been front page news and Cindy Sheehan would have been the dems poster girl once again.

    There's a big difference of course. Bush started it.

    Agreed ... and that was long before Obama got elected ....

    Nobody has given a rats about Cindy Sheehan for years now.

    You are omitting that many on the left were saying that Afghanistan was being ignored by Bush and that our commitment in Iraq was holding us back there. Many believe that is where the real fight is. Had Bush just sent 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan I agree he would have been attacked for it but prolly not for the reasons you think. I think he'd be attacked for expanding the war in A-Stan while refusing to contract or end the war in Iraq. Other than that I would have applauded him for sending more troops there. Obama, on the other hand, has already gotten the ball rolling a bit to end the Iraq War by the second half of next year. He campaigned on focusing more on Afghanistan so this should really be of no surprise to anyone.

    Don't confuse anti-Iraq war or anti-Bush with being the same as anti-war.

    That's a minor detail to many neo cons. I've seen several "pundits" on fox and cnn speculating when america will start calling Iraq Obamas war. Never. It will always be Bush's war.

    These snakes are so confident in thier propaganda that they really believe there will come a time when we will forget Bush and Cheney lied us into this illegal war.

    Oh, hell.... They had plenty of assistance from the liberal war-hawks who were for it before they were against it and who tried to cover their asses by selling you their propaganda that they didn't get the intel, or that they didn't have time to read the intel. It's all bullshit 'cause they knew what they were doing and helped convince "we the people"-- making it our war.
