But what I saw today, September 12, 2009 in Washington DC not only reinforced that pride, it made me EVEN MORE PROUD of hundreds of thousands of my fellow countrymen and women who came to Washington DC to say the following to President Barack Hussein Obama, Nancy Pelosi, "Dingy" Harry Reid and the Democrat Socialist majority (let the photos tell the story)
On the march to the Capitol.

Obama's progandists at ABC (All Barack Channel) are saying 60 - 70,000 (?). That is bogus. I've counterprotested the commie ANSWER rallies in San Francisco which were 70,000 and this was way bigger than that.
ABC: "YOU LIE!!!!"
