    Anti-war left has trouble convincing Obama followers to protest Libya involvement
    By Jeff Winkler 3:54 PM 03/28/2011

    Life ainít easy for an anti-war liberal.

    President Barack Obama launched air attacks against Libya eight years to the day George Bush sent bombs over Baghdad. Back in 2003, the lefty site MoveOn.org ďflexed [its muscle with] Ďvirtual marches,í in which tens of thousands of protesters jammed Senate and White House phones, fax machines and e-mail boxes with antiwar messages.Ē Originally founded to encourage the public to ďmove onĒ from Bill Clintonís sexual escapades, MoveOn.org repositioned itself as a heavyweight in the early 2000s anti-war movement.

    This time around? A little less than a week after the attack, MoveOn.org has articles bashing ďOut-of-Control Republicans in Wisconsin,Ē but hardly a mention of the bombing in Libya. Well, there is a post noting that John McCain called Muammar Gaddafi an ďinteresting manĒ on Twitter two years ago. So much for moving on.

    After Obama addresses the nation tonight about the governmentís recent intervention in Libya, perhaps the left can coalesce around a message. Itís hard enough when the administration wonít call the action a ďwar,Ē but anti-war groups with a traditionally liberal bent are having a tough time rallying those who so adamantly opposed Republican President Bushís war.

    However, if Obama read like this: President Barack Obama(R-Ill.), you can bet you ass they'd get a protest together before you could say Jack Robinson.

    Didn't I tell everybody for years that people will protest a Democrat doing it too? Didn't I say it? Yes I did.

    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    You hate that I was proven right on something.

    I remember years ago people claiming people were against war because they were Democrat. I kept saying they'll be against it when it is a Democrat. Nobody listened to me. I could never be right about the anti-war people even if I was around them a lot.

    And, as the article shows, you were wrong.

    Yep, no thousands protesting in the street to impeach Obama. Only a few quacks in the Democratic party and loons like Farrakhan and Kucinich that are raising a fuss.
