If this were Bush doing this with Congress out of town and without a declaration of war and without a sign-off on from Congress, you would have seen the streets flooded. But we're not seeing the streets flooded...
This is how disingenuous and insincere the peace movement really is. It's how disingenuous and insincere the anti-war movement really is, if all it takes to get them to shut up and sit down is you just have to make it look like you're smart, be eloquent, look like you're more intelligent than Bush, and be African-American. If you are able to pull that off, the peace movement will not protest for peace.
You can go out there and kill anybody you want. You can drop bombs anywhere you want, and the peace movement will sit on its collective butt and let you!
Tony Lee elaborates:
Left-wing activist David Swanson, "who voted for Obama in 2008 before switching to the Green Party," told the Post that "if George W. Bush were launching wars with Congress out of town, oh, it would be flooded." But he said liberals give Obama a pass because "he’s more eloquent, he’s more intelligent, he’s African American, he bills himself as a constitutional scholar.”
In other words, another Nobel Peace Prize must be in the offing.
