I have written and talked about this before: the media would highlight every time something went wrong in the War On Terror. There were daily and weekly body counts of dead servicemen.
But that was then, this is now.
The press, in my opinion, was always more concerned about Bush's legacy and making him look bad than they ever honestly were over the soldiers that were dying.
Protests in places like the liberal Bay Area were CONSTANT. Screeching voices over bullhorns were daily reminders that Bush was the real terrorist and that the blood was on his hands for all the death and destruction from the War.
What a difference a Commander In Chief makes. The mainstream media began their love affair with President Obama long before Election Day last November. And things that they would have SLAMMED Bush for, they seemingly found less offensive when committed by Obama.
Look at the War now.
I just saw an article about the caskets coming home. The media and the Left pushed and pushed the Bush White House to allow pictures of the caskets to be published for all to see.
In April, President Obama lifted the press ban.
So where is the footage now that they are allowed to cover the caskets arriving??
When the body of Marine Lance Cpl. David Hall of Ohio arrived at Dover Air Force Base in Deleware, ONE media outlet was there to cover his arrival. ONE.
And we barely hear anymore about the deaths from the War.
But I won't let us forget the way the media NOW wants us to.
As of the writing of this blog, 38 Americans have died in Afghanistan in September. For 2009, so far 220 have been killed.
That is more war dead than 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004 COMBINED.
I wish the media were as interested in this as they were before January 20th, 2009.
