Sheehan Now Goes After Obama

Will she still be darling of the left?

Barack Obama is off on his vacation this week (destroying the country is tough work) and he ran into a bunch of people who are still thrilled with him. That is, all but a few. Anti war protester Cindy Sheehan, the darling of the left when she harassed George W. Bush, turns out to be an equal opportunity moonbat. Sheehan is now near Obama’s vacation spot and will harass him for the troop build up in Afghanistan.

Poor Barack can’t catch a break. He ran for office pledging to end the wars and bring the troops home (frequencies changed from immediately to 16 months) but he decided that it might not be wise to leave the Middle East too soon. This drove his base nuts and his increase of troops in Afghanistan has sent them over the edge. Obama kept saying Afghanistan was where the focus should be but as soon as he focused there, it was not important any longer.

I am not opposed to any of the actions of the administration with regard to deploying troops to Afghanistan (except there should be a lot more of them) and I hope he decides that victory is the best exit strategy. I expect him to exert as much effort on winning in the Middle East as he did winning his current job. I am happy that he has adopted many of the tactics that George Bush employed. I know Obama has “repackaged” them so they are “not the same” but he is basically keeping what worked no matter how much he bashed it during the campaign.

Will Cindy Sheehan be the darling of the left after harassing Obama? Will they allow her to have her way as they did at Crawford or will they arrest her or otherwise force her to leave? The left is caught in between Barack and a hard place because it applauded Sheehan when she attacked Bush. How can they attack this poor woman who lost her son in a war? It will be interesting to see how she is portrayed now that the messiah is in office and the media are his cheerleading team.

Even before all of this some of Obama’s people were saying he has had it so tough that he needs a vacation from his vacation. Obama will go to Camp David after he returns from Massachusetts and will not be back in DC until after Labor Day. His vacation wore him out. According to White House spokesman Bill Burton:

On Monday, Burton pointed to former President George W. Bush’s vacation habits to defend scattered criticism of Obama’s August schedule.

“As I recall, the previous president [took] quite a bit of vacation himself, and I don’t think anyone bemoaned that,” Burton said. Politico

He does not think anyone bemonaed that? What planet was this guy living on? The left always carped that Bush was on vacation. Any discussion about 9/11 leads to people saying Bush was on vacation instead of reading intelligence briefings. The left constantly discussed the supposed 5 week vacation Bush took. It was addressed quite a bit by the left.

From the Washington Post:

President Bush is getting the kind of break most Americans can only dream of — nearly five weeks away from the office, loaded with vacation time.

The president departed Tuesday for his longest stretch yet away from the White House, arriving at his Crawford ranch in the evening to clear brush, visit with family and friends, and tend to some outside-the-Beltway politics. By historical standards, it is the longest presidential retreat in at least 36 years.

Here is a site with jokes about Bush on vacation (some are quite funny).

Here is a CBS report that discusses how much time Bush spent at Camp David.

And here is one from the blowhards at the Huffington Post who cry about Bush going on vacation as the Middle East heats up. Anyone read where they made the same complaint about Obama going on vacation while his troop surge in Afghanistan is heating up?

Now personally I don’t care where Bush, Obama or any others go spend their time because they are not really on vacation. The job is an around the clock gig so even during “down time” they are getting briefed and making decisions. I bring it up to point out the stupidity of Burton’s remark. Of course the difference here is that Bush was seen as never working and his vacation was the reason for 9/11. Obama is seen as needing even more time off. Think anyone will blame Kennedy’s death on him? I mean, it did happen while he was on vacation (and in the same state to boot).

Back to Sheehan. She was a moonbat long before this and she will be one long after. I don’t think what she is doing serves any purpose just like I felt when she was doing it to Bush. The left though, celebrated her acts back then so now they have to live with the monster they created.

One of the last things Obama needs is someone like Sheehan reminding his base that he did not keep his word or that he is emulating George Bush with regard to the war.

They told me if I voted for McCain there would be an escalation in the war tempo.

They were right.

    Sheehan, will the media report her latest antics?
    I guess not. Has anyone else heard anymore about her?
    Not a peep!

    Take a leason here; Sheehan is not effective because she has no mouth, no media to repeat her stupid moronic ranting and weird demands.
    This is the same way to defeat terrorists world wide. Give them zero coverage. No media. No report on the latest bombings, be-headings, stonings or what-ever autracity they dream up and execute.
    They do these things, for one reason; so western reports will report it. They nfluence politics that way.

    There should be only one response to terrorists, be they Muhammadans or Sheehanadans; When they are discovered they should be quitely and without ceremony shot on the spot.

    The reason Sheehan has no platform , no bully pulpit to speak from, is that the media is ignoring her because the MSM doesn’t want to embarrass the Resident on his little vacation. t was great when sheehan was after Bush, but now that its Hussein, oh- well, they simply can’t have that, can they?

  3. SpideyTerry says:

    Personally, I always thought Sheehan was a nut cashing in on the death of her son. Heck, I recall Sheehan herself saying that Casey wanted to serve in the military and felt that it was his duty to go to Iraq. His death was a tragedy, of course, but he chose his path. And by all accounts, he died a true hero. That doesn’t make his death acceptable, of course, but it is something to be proud of and commended. Sheehan’s lies, rhetoric and actions diminish his sacrifice.

    Still, I’ll give Sheehan this much – at least her rhetoric hasn’t changed just because someone else is in the White House. Crazy as she is, she at least honestly believes the crap she peddles. That’s more that can be said for certain others, who apparently only opposed the war simply because they hated Bush.

  4. Blake says:

    Sheehan is in the class of “useful idiots” that the liberal/socialist/communist hierarchy likes to use for cannon fodder- they will charge the barricades, but they won’t get a seat at the table. They are throwaways, Dixiecups, if you will.
    That is Sheehan- it would not surprise me if they cast her aside- her best- by date has come and gone.

  5. Blake says:

    I saw a pic of Sheehan that almost made me feel sorry for her, sitting all alone in a tent, trying to stalk the Resident on Martha’s Vineyard- no press- totally ignored. She has trashed her life for five minutes of what she probably thought was “fame”.
