Thousands Protest Bush Visit in Salt Lake City
From Raw Story:
During a rally held in Salt Lake City yesterday, thousands cheered Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson as he blasted George Bush as a "dishonest, war-mongering, human-rights-violating president."
The protest against Bush's Iraq war policies was held prior to the president's arrival Wednesday night in Salt Lake City to give a speech to the national convention of the American Legion this morning.
Utah is considered to be the "reddest" state, showing that there is growing debate about the Iraq war even in friendly Bush territory.
....Earlier today, Anderson told MSNBC that he was a "gracious person" but that "we all have a moral responsibility to stand up and oppose our president when we see him taking our nation in such a wrong direction....."
