Socialist anti-war left propagandists camped out in Crawford, TX with Cindy Sheehan face opposition from locals & military families....

As anti-war left propagandists who are camped near the Bush ranch in Crawford, TX are being met with increasing opposition from many patriotic American military families and Texans who don't appreciate their hate-speech campaign against President Bush, American troops and the War Against Terror---which the leftists want the United States to lose.

This hate-America and hate-George W. Bush crowd of left-wing socialists have exposed their true colors and are now finding that their political anti-war, anti-troops circus is not very popular among red state Americans, both in Texas and all over the country.

More information below and here.

"CRAWFORD, Texas — From the window of his limousine, President Bush got a motorcade view of more than 100 anti-war protesters camped outside his ranch as he rode to a political fund-raiser Friday near his spread. Bush did not stop.

Law enforcement agencies used their cars to block two intersecting roads. Demonstrators have camped out all week but authorities have required them to stand behind yellow tape. They were not asked to leave their makeshift campsite....

It's unclear whether Bush, riding in a black Suburban with tinted windows, looked at the demonstrators as his caravan passed. He arrived before noon, local time, at a neighbor's ranch for a barbecue where he was expected to raise at least $2 million for the Republican National Committee....

Some 230 people attended the fund-raiser at Stan and Kathy Hickey's Broken Spoke Ranch, a 478-acre spread next to Bush's ranch. All have contributed at least $25,000 to the RNC, and many are "rangers," an honorary campaign title bestowed on those who raised $200,000 or more for Bush, or "pioneers," those who have raised $100,000 or more.

On Thursday, Bush had acknowleded that some families of U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq want to bring the troops home now, but he said that would be a big mistake. "Pulling the troops out would send a terrible signal to the enemy," he said.

Speaking to reporters at his ranch, the president noted that the United States sent more soldiers to Iraq and Afghanistan before elections and was considering doing so again before another round of Iraqi elections in December....

Bush said he would make any decision to remove troops based on recommendations by Casey, who gave a briefing by videolink during the president's ranch meeting with advisers. "My position has been clear, and therefore, the position of this government is clear," Bush said....

"I know it's hard for some Americans to see that progress," Bush said. "But we are making progress." As for bringing the troops home, the president said he had "heard the voices of those saying, `Pull out now."' "I've thought about their cry and their sincere desire to reduce the loss of life by pulling our troops out. I just strongly disagree," he said.

Bush spoke as Sheehan sat on the road outside his ranch with a growing group of war protesters.... Sheehan began her standoff on Saturday, declaring she would stay for the entire month that Bush plans to stay in Texas if he won't meet with her. Since then, dozens of other activists have joined her...., although the protesters began facing increased antagonism Thursday from locals and opposition from other military families....

"I sympathize with Mrs. Sheehan," Bush said. "She feels strongly about her position. She has every right in the world to say what she believes. This is America."

The White House put out an accounting of all the meetings that Bush has had with families of the war dead -- 900 relatives of 272 people who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sheehan met the president in June 2004...."
