Where are the protesters?

Whether you agree or disagree with the U.S. getting involved in another war, one fact remains - we are now involved in three wars/military actions.  When Bush was President, there were protests almost daily.  Obama promised to get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan, and many people voted for him for this very reason.  Not only has he not gotten the U.S. out of these wars, but he has sent more troops and now he has authorized military action in Libya to boot.  Where are all of the protesters?  I have not seen a single protest here in Santa Barbara. Where are the movie stars, rock stars and pop stars making speeches at award shows?  Where is the outrage? You could cut the hypocrisy with a butter knife.

For whatever misguided reason, Democrats think when a Republican President authorizes military action, he is an evil war monger.  If  Democratic President authorizes war, it is justified and therefore acceptable.  This behavior baffles me.
