    I did, several in fact. The numbers are contradictory, though almost no one says over 1 million. The most reliable was the 50 - 70 k from the DC Fire Department, but that seems low.

    seems like just another right wing circle jerk to me. that is why the reporting is sparse.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    I was looking for the numbers from the NPS.... that would be the official number.... the rest are all guesses.

    Seems like another left wing jerk with nothing to add.

    They don't, Scorp. I don't like contradicting you, cuz I likes you

    But, the National Park Service stopped issuing official crowd estimates in 1994. They reversed their decision to offer an estimate for the Obama inauguration (1.8 milliion, the 1.2 million was the Johnson administration).
    Park service changes course, plans to offer crowd estimate - USATODAY.com
    National Park Service issues official crowd estimate - Inauguration Blog - Washington Times

    The number you cited is from Michelle Malkin's blog, she got it from a rw twitterer who had bad information (including the ABC number of 2 million, which was also false):

    "Update: Tabitha Hale says Parks & Rec estimated 1.2 million. An ABC News correspondent says it wasn’t national ABC News network that reported 2 million figure. I take them at their word — and am checking to find out more info."

    Michelle Malkin Celebrating the 9/12 rallies; Turnout estimated at 2 million; Update: How many?; FreedomWorks in error
    Neither one of these numbers are accurate. Malkin notes the ABC News story (a FreedomWorks guy lied), and doesn't go back to the NPS numbers, but the NPS does not issue crowd estimates, and didn't for Saturday's march.

    You want us to take your concerns seriously, yet you blow off and demean ours.

    Make no mistake, this weekend's turnout turned Obama's insides cold. He's lost the public debate badly.

    Good luck finding the numbers. Despite Scorp's claim, I could only find crowd estimates from NPS for Obama's inauguration. He is welcome to document the claim, but until then, his claim is no better than any of the other guesses, and the Fire Department is the most likely reliable.
