he anti-war movement was all over the news before President Obama was elected. But apparently they werent really anti-war ... they were just anti-President Bush. Two college professors just released a study of national protests between 2007 and 2009. What did they find?
After January 2007, the attendance at antiwar rallies [measured in] roughly the tens of thousands, or thousands, through the end of 2008.
After the election of Barack Obama as president, the order of magnitude of antiwar protests dropped [...] Organizers were hard pressed to stage a rally with participation in the thousands, or even in the hundreds. For example, we counted exactly 107 participants at a Chicago rally on October 7, 2009.
Amazing. Especially because the war in Afghanistan ramped up after Obama was elected. American fatalities shot up in 2009 and 2010.
The protesters have remained silent over Libya.

What about Cindy 'screechy' Sheehan ?
5 of them still show up at Laguna Beach Main Beach each weekend.
Not really. Liars lie.

Well after 10 years, maybe they are exhausted. /sarc.
Last I saw, screechy was on a public-access show hawking some book/manuscript she had in a three-ring binder. That was a few years ago.
Still busy with her book signing?
Probably don’t have gas money to travel to the protests...
They only come out to display their fake outrage when Republicans are in power. Once a Democrat is in, Code Pink & all the other misfits of society become noticeably silent.
9-10% unemployment and the MSM simply refuse to see 'em as it might reflect poorly on the First Black President.
They have switched to protesting government employee cuts until a Republican is back in the White House.
They aren’t out there for one major reason: There’s no funding coming from democrat sources.
The libs on Huff Post say they are not anti war but pro protestors now. I kid you not they say I will do ANYTHING for FREEDOM and thats what people over there want.
