    Where were the Iraq War Town Hall Meetings about 8 years ago?

    Where were the claims of ramming that uneccessary and very costly war down people's throats then?

    Where was the so-called Liberal MSM covering the protesters that were protesting then?

    I think I see where the OP is headed. Are you suggesting that because what is happening today wasn't going on 8 years ago, it somehow makes what is happening today shallow, fake, and hypocritical?

    Not necessarily, but you said it...not me.

    I'm just wondering where all these "concerned and patriotic real Americans" were when the country REALLY needed them?

    I was a protestor of the Iraq war and there was a tremendous amount of coverage on the MSM. Why do you think there wasn't? Please don't take this the wrong way, but is it because you either weren't old enough to remember or were not into politics during that time? I'm just wondering how you missed it.

    Not necessarily? You just confirmed my hunch with this post. You are transparent. It was easy to see what you were doing.

    If you take a new direction in your life tomorrow, whatever part of your life that may entail, does that mean you are being fake, shallow, or hypocritical in some way, because you didn't take that new direction earlier?

    And by the way, "right wingers" would technically be those who advocate no government at all.

    Bush and company were very successful at wrapping the Iraq war in patriotism. Anyone speaking out against it was labled soft on terrorism or un patriotic.

    Putting out a bill that takes away freedoms and calling it the "Patriot Act" is one example

    We regrets that we didn't set more bombs...oh wait, sorry that was William Ayers as printed on 9/11/2001. IF you could pull yourself away from the horror that day you could have read Obama's best friend, mentor, and possible ghost writer saying that.

    We're not like the LEFT at ALL!
