Where are all the War Protestors?

What happened to the "No blood for oil" bunch? Hell, what happened to all the war protestors? It is as if they disappeared after Obama was elected, but that couldnt be the reason, could it?

I do not think that it is the fact that Obama was elected. It more that people just become used to the fact that the troops are stationed there and almost everyone agrees that we can not just pick up and leave in a day. If there was a draft I am sure the outcry would be a lot louder no matter who was in the oval office.

I don't know about that...duringthe 2008 campaign, McCain was asked how long he thoughtthe troops needed to be in the Middle East, and McCain said something to the effect of "until we can safely bring them home, as long as that takes". And he was absolutely crucified for that remark.

Candidate Obama on the other hand, talked about bringing them home more quickly. Then, of course, he doesn't do anything of the sort, because President Obama realizes that Candidate Obama said some unrealistic things to make his opponent look bad (just for being honest).
