"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

A Red State?
Between 400 and 500 people gathered at an anti-war rally in Pioneer Park, about three blocks from the Salt Palace where Bush spoke. "It's like Vietnam all over again, and I opposed that too," said George Muller of Salt Lake, a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel who was dressed in desert fatigues. Muller, who said he served from 1961-2002, said he was pleased to see so many people at the rally, and that he believed there was a shift in the country's attitude toward the war. "That's what it's going to take - veterans groups, veterans and mothers who have lost kids speaking out," Muller said.
Mass protest of our Dear Leader in a Red State, with a retired colonel leading the charge? Shocking. Could it have anything to do with... Iraq falling apart, Afghanistan not being too far behind, our young men and woman dying for a needless cause, the White House being investigated for treasonous acts, our education and healthcare systems in desperate need of repair, our jobs and growing national debt being shipped to India and China, and our unsecured borders... Could it?

Hat tip to Blackhole.
