Remember when...

I remember those awful Bush years when the media would remind us on a daily basis just how many American soldiers had died in that needless war.

We always knew exactly how many soldiers had died in Iraq and Afghanistan because the media relished the gory details so long as they could have the blood be on Bush’s hands.

Bush is gone, believe it or not. The way the Left keeps blaming him, you’d think he hadn’t moved his stuff out of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Now that Obama is Commander-In-Chief, it seems as if the war has been largely forgotten. The bellyaching over the President being a war monger has certainly stopped now that Obama is in charge of the military.

But the deaths and destruction continue on.

Today I read that 2009 was the deadliest year for American troops in Afghanistan since the overthrow of the Taliban.

DEADLIEST YEAR?? And it’s only August.

Imagine the hysteria and the crazy chatter if BUSH were in charge right now.

Where have all the war protesters gone? Where are all the obstructions of traffic? The daily, weekly, and monthly anti-war get togethers?

Nowhere to be found.

Remember when war deaths mattered?

I am not a fan of war; but I am acutely aware that it is necessary at times.    But the point remains:  do you recall the last time the nightly news, or any of the talking-head shows, ever mentioned the total number of dead soldiers since the wars began?

Wasn't it before 20-January-09?
