Wolfson said the administration "is on the defense about the war," pointing to the president's press conference earlier this month and slipping poll numbers on his performance.
"People have a sense that we are losing control over there," Wolfson said. "We know public opinion in general has turned against the war."
When Bush hit Salt Lake City for the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention last year, he was also met with protests.
Guliuzza said protesters would likely be at any presidential appearance and that he would be "shocked" if even a graduation speech done by the president would not have policy language intertwined with it.
The protests provide local folks with an opportunity to show that they are there and vocal in their opposition to the president or the war in Iraq or both, he added."Utah is not the reddest of red states," Guliuzza said, "but it's pretty darn red."
