NEWS ITEM: Sheehan leads group of protesters near Bush home
From The Associated Press:
Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan is protesting again — this time near former President George W. Bush's Dallas home.Hey Cindy, Barack Obama is in charge now. He makes the decisions on continuing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Sheehan led a brief protest of around 50 people Monday afternoon near the house. The former president and his wife moved into the four-bedroom home in a wealthy Dallas neighborhood in February.
Protesters met at an intersection and then walked about a mile to an elementary school across from the house. Sheehan carried a sign that read, "For what noble cause."
Sheehan's 21-year-old son, Casey, was killed in the war in Iraq. She staged a prolonged demonstration outside Bush's ranch near Crawford, Texas, in 2005. She said her issues with Bush didn't end with his presidency.
The event brought out about a dozen people protesting the protest. Bush supporters carried signs that said "Pro Bush" and "Go Home Cindy."
