"You have heard it on Rush they have no ideas, no logic or answers, but now you can see it for yourself. There is more anti-Bush than anti-war sentiment, which proves they are clearly not protesting the butcher of Baghdad, but Bush's administration"
Of course it is. But it's hypocritical to protest GWB's current efforts on anything less than political grounds when you were silent as churchmice when Clinton was lobbing cruise missiles at Iraq in '98, or at Kosovo, etc. What part of that is a mystery to you?
I'm still waiting for the video to load, so I don't know what it shows. But if it shows the usual ANSWER/Sparticists with their Bush=Hitler signs, it is clear that they are just demonizing Bush rather than engaging in serious dialogue.
How do you have a rational discussion of policy with somebody who accepts as axiomatic that GWB is invading Iraq just to finish his father's war or just for oil or just to get the DJIA off the front page? These aren't arguments. They aren't even good slogans. They are just mindless parrotings of fanatical ravings of people who are paranoid about all things Bush.
How did I know what they were all going to say even before watching it?
All these anti-war types parrot the same talking points over and over, but ask them what should be done, and they never seem to have an answer.
Another tip off that the "peace" protestors are in reality antiBush protestors is when they hold up their "impeach Bush" or even "Bush was not elected" signs.
The left believes that Fidel Castro and Saddam Hussein were elected of course they were the only candidates running for their offices though.
I don't even need to read their arguments. They aren't debating the war, they are offering up bumpersticker logic and when pressed on one point just move onto another slogan.
