    Anyone trying to compare the two events, in any way, is a moron.

    And that includes you Marco.

    Comparisons can be good if the correct conclusions are drawn from them.

    Obama and his folks are far more popular than the StoopidConLeader and her folks.

    Excellent way of comparing the crowds.

    One presumes that these images were taken fairly?

    That is to say both images were captured at the time when the crowds were gathered in their maximum numbers.

    Yes, radio, they do compare, and you are wrong. The facts and the logical interpretation therein prove it.

    No, they do not.

    1) The inauguration was planned for months.
    2) The inauguration was a first time in history kind of event
    3) The inauguration was promoted, hyped and talked about, rightfully so, all over the media leading up to the event.

    The protests yesterday had none of these factors in play.

    If you leave out these facts from your equation, your interpretation will be faulty, and not at all logical.

    The two do not compare. At all.

    Ah, the attempt to marginalize the protests are well underway.

    I think you can get a semi-accurate gauge of how many people showed up to the anti-tax event, assuming as editec says, the pictures were taken at the height of the protests.
