SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KCBS/AP) -- Just hours before the House is expected to vote on an Iraq funding bill, police rousted demonstrators camped outside Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Pacific Heights residence.
Gone are the tents, tables, banners, candles and flowers. All that remained early this morning of the so-called "Camp Pelosi" was a handful of people sleeping in vehicles.
"We're going to set up camp again tomorrow, as soon as we check with the lawyers," said a protestor who identified himself with the group Veterans for Peace. "We're pretty sure we're right that they
can't just come, and they claim they had a neighbor complain."
Most of the group has been present for a dozen or so days, opposing any additional funding for the war.

Anytime a prominent liberal (Nancy Pelosi), a moderate shill (Hillary) and a staunch right-wing Republican (Tom Tancredo) agree on anything you know that something fishy is going on. Yet, conservatives being as flighty as they've been of late, it's still sad to see so many feeding so easily into liberal propaganda machine trying to get rid of Alberto Gonzales. Who did nothing wrong except fire a few attorneys the American people could care less about. But having lost out recently on getting Karl Rove via the Scooter Libby witch hunt, you knew that they'd turn their ire towards another top Bush ally. And with Gonzales being the Attorney General & such an avid supporter of the war in Iraq, much less the NSA surveillance program, there couldn't have been a better target:
Bottom line: since they have no chance of impeaching the President or getting Cheney to resign, they will do anything and I mean anything to get the head of the man who orchestrated an election they still feel was "stolen" from them. Rove is the man they want, still 3rd on their hate list and they'll go after him every day until Bush leaves office. Gonzales? If they can take him down too, they will. But Tom DeLay said it best: " This is just a taste of what's going to be like for the next two years. And the Bush administration sort of showed their weakness when they got rid of Don Rumsfeld. This is a made up scandal. There is no evidence of wrongdoing whatsoever. ... They ought to be fighting back."
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Speaking from the White House Tuesday, President Bush reiterated his support for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales in the midst of the scandal over whether the firings of at least seven U.S. attorneys were politically motivated.
"I am confident he acted appropriately," Bush said. "I regret that it turned into a public spectacle."
"There is no indication [after reviewing the matter] that anyone did anything improper," the president said while vowing to fight congressional demands that the White House allow top political adviser Karl Rove and former White House counsel Harriet Miers to be interviewed under oath. (Watch the president defend Gonzales )
Lawmakers want to ask Rove and Miers about their roles in the firings and also about the motivation for the moves. The Justice Department has admitted that at least one attorney was removed to make way for a former aide to Rove. Seven other U.S. attorneys were fired because of performance issues, the department said.The Bush White House has been opposed to any of its officials appearing before congressional committees, arguing that such testimony violates executive privilege.

Wake me up when anybody outside their circle cares what these idiots think:
Actually, from what I've read recently the Iraqi people seem to feel that they are doing quite well.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Denouncing a conflict entering its fifth year, protesters raised their voices Saturday against U.S. policy in Iraq and marched by the thousands to the Pentagon in the footsteps of an epic demonstration four decades ago against another divisive war.
A counterprotest shadowed the anti-war crowd on a day of dueling signs and sentiments such as “Illegal Combat” and “Peace Through Strength,” and songs like “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “War (What’s It Good For?).”
Thousands crossed the Memorial Bridge over the Potomac River from the Lincoln Memorial to rally as close to the Pentagon as they could get. Smaller protests were organized across the country and held abroad, stretching to Tuesday’s four-year anniversary of the Iraq invasion.
“Too many people have died and it doesn’t solve anything,” said Ann O’Grady, who drove through snow with her husband, Tom, and two children, 13 and 10, from Athens, Ohio. “I feel bad carrying out my daily activities while people are suffering, Americans and Iraqis.”
