Be John Galt posted a comment on the concept; I'd like to continue the thought.
So what happened war protesters - because your guy got elected, war is OK now? The only change that Obama has brought about regarding the 2 wars is a massive reduction in media coverage. So seriously, do protests stop when it's a Democrat in office? That would suggest that the goal of the protests was not about the troops, the Americans risking their lives, but about ousting the standing, albeit awful, previous administration. Do you even care that US soldiers are still dying? Then why aren't you protesting?
