Remember the daily, almost hourly, updates we got back in 2005 when Cindy Sheehan protested the War in Iraq outside then-President George W. Bush’s Crawford, Texas ranch?
Well, according to Byron York:
She’s still protesting the war, and on Monday she announced plans to demonstrate at Martha’s Vineyard, where President Obama will be vacationing.
And it doesn’t seem the media are paying much attention. York sums it up:
But her days are over. The people who most fervently supported her have moved on.
Not too long ago, some observers worried that Barack Obama would come under increasing pressure from the Left to leave both Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, it seems those worries were unfounded. For many liberal activists, opposing the war was really about opposing George W. Bush. When Bush disappeared, so did their anti-war passion.
