    You would think this would be more or a newsline that 2 girls kissing at a Twins Stadium.

    During President Bush, they used every opportunity to use the War to make the military and President Bush look bad, turning every mistake into a scandal.

    Now during President Obama, you hardly hear anything from the media about the war, troop deaths or Code Pink.
