    That's still a hell of a lot of people for a tax/healthcare/deficit protest....
    Out of a 300 million plus population? I really donlt think 60k is that impressive.

    I agree. I have said that 60k is still a significant number. Especially coming from a side of politics that isn't particularly experienced with "protesting".

    I think the inflated numbers are coming from the fringiest of the movement who obviously hoped for a larger turnout. They don't understand that they are actually hurting their cause with their ridiculous claims. It makes the message and the entire movement look more ridiculous.

    meh, like I said before, there are many like me, who agree with the sentiment of the protest, but who would only protest, under extreme duress, and then, from the rooftops with a high caliber rifle.


    Getting a bunch of jobless dirty hippies to a war protest easy.


    Getting 60k right and lbertarians to anything like this. simply astounding.

    I have said in this thread before, I am not concerned about the numbers, your side does it, and apparently so does the right. not a bit of difference really.

    My cousin lives in D.C. and he said it was at least 100k. Just his estimate,though.

    Besides, the length out to 14th & E is longer, and like I said, all we can see in the pic is the people in the frame. There's a lot more of DC than just PA Ave.




    I didn't give any numbers. I commented on the pic and the area it encompassed -- nothing more, nothing less.
    Dude....take a ruler to your own picture. The mall is clearly 4x wider.

    If you take a standard ruler the mall measures 1 and 1/2 inches. Pennsylvania ave is about 1/3 of an inch.

    I agree. I remember at the last "March of Washington" in support of gay rights. Organizers had hoped for over a million. The estimate came in at 400k.

    There was a lot of dispute over the numbers there as well. Kinda silly....400k is still a large turn-out.

    31 pages, many of them disputing the numbers. Does it really matter?
    Protesting is fine, it does not achieve much when it comes to changing the policy of those in charge. How about ensure those who oppose Obama vote in the next election? Take congress away from them if you can otherwise we still have 3 years left of this ride.

    Probably because these days its more about entertainment to people. Not about issues. Pity.
    Same Alinsky play book the Dems are working from.... Marginalize, demonize, and isolate. If you can change the subject and get everyone arguing about crowd size instead of the real message.... you win.

    That is until people get so fed up with this crap they exercise their real second amendment rights.

    Pennsylvania Ave. is about 156' wide. The mall is about 260' wide.

    Wider yes, but not 4x wider.
