Do Glenn Beck Fans actually care more about the environment than Obama Fans?

    Well lets look at how each group behaved after their largest gatherings to see their specific individual they were a fan of and find out.

    Compare and contrast. The National Mall after Barack Obama's inauguration:

    The National Mall after Saturday's "Restoring Honor" Rally hosted by Libertarian TV pundit Glenn Beck:

    Aren't liberals supposed to be the ones saving the environment? I know it was cold and windy and there were probably 2 times as many people at the inauguration but damn they left a noticeable mess during the inauguration.

    Just more proof that Beck is more influential among liberals than Obama. All of the people at his event were actually liberals who came out to make fun of what he said.

    It has been my experience over the years that conservatives in general clean up after themselves. When I was teaching and we would go on field trips I could almost gaurantee which students would have to be reminded to clean up their respective campsites when we were leaving. The students who hunted or were likewise of conservative bent never had to be reminded....ever. The more lefty ones though almost allways had to be reminded...repeatedly. I figured they were so used to their folks cleaning up after them (or maybe they just lived like pigs) that they figured everyone else would do it then.

    You might also note that the ~ 87,000 attendance this weekend is less than .1 million people (less than point one mil) while Obama's presidential inauguration was attended by ~ 1.2 million people (one point two mil) which is more than twelve times the amount of people!

    the numbers for the beck rally were much higher than that, and for Obama they were not as high as claimed

    Barack Obama launched his presidency before an estimated 1.5 million people on the National Mall on Tuesday with somber yet confident tones, saying the country will overcome its serious economic and international challenges.

    And had the numbers been reversed the mall would have looked the same after each rally.
    That is the shame of it.

    I would think 800,000 people would generate more trash than 100,000 or less people.
