Second newsblast: news you can use!
1. Lib rally crowd estimated at "175,000 to 200,000" by...lib media. Capitol Police have issued no official estimate (big surprise...).
Check the pictures:
'One Nation [Forcefully Divided by Race, Income, and Employment status] Working Together' liberal rally:
Remember, this is 175,000 to 200,000.
"Restoring Honor [And God] in America" Glenn Beck Rally, cited at 60,000 to 70,000 and 87,000 by liberal media:
Both are pictures at the 'peak' of the gathering (I couldn't find aerials of the liberals as they're probably embarrassed at the turnout)
Now let's compare them:
Red = ONR dense crowd (people pushing themselves together), Blue = ONR Loose crowd (noticeable space between between people)
Notice how the crowd tapers off and people are moving toward the 'dense' area in the ONR picture above.
So, if we accept the lib media estimates of crowd size, did the Glenn Beck rally (which dense entirely around reflecting pool, under all the trees, the WWII memorial, and the side field; while loose only behind the WWII memorial and in a small portion of the side field.
2. Political gridlock as the economy drifts - if you think this is bad, wait until Republicans take over. Obama doesn't have the experience to play the political game, and the most effective Chief of Staff in the last two decades left on Friday. Obama's screwed.
