That part should be fairly obvious, and it goes without saying that there are historical examples of Republicans who seemed a bit more willing to sit on their hands regarding important issues – like spending – when a member of their own party was holding the reins. When it comes to groups like Code Pink, war is a terrible thing if there’s a Republican in the White House. (And make no mistake… war is a terrible thing.) But if it’s one of their own pulling the trigger and giving the Go Command, well… it’s kind of hot and humid out. Do you really want to go marching in this weather? And most of the Magic Markers are dried up and we’d have to go get more if we’re going to make protest signs. Maybe we should just send a nice e-mail to our Senator.
Way to stand firm on those principles, ladies.
If it were a GOP President, you can damned well bet that all the money in the world would be pouring into these “anti-war” astroturf movements.
