    Catch 22 - the strategy of brainless libs. The lib media won't pay attention to it unless there is whacked out violence and rhetoric. If there is, then the liberal media says they are whack jobs.

    In the spirit of the current tone of the board, the media is just a circle wank.

    Do people believe protests work?

    I don't think they worked when they protested during Bush's tenure.

    Looks like people do not care for the Midwest mobsters running the White House.

    DC gets 17 million tourists in 07 ...thats about 800,000 a week Your protestors could easily be mostly looky lous from the huge pool of regular tourists.

    Whether you liked Bush's policies or not, the Bush WH exercised real leadership within the Republican Party, but the Obama WH does not have that kind of clout among Democrats in Congress, so the demonstrations are aimed at telling members of Congress that their constituents - demonstrations are occurring in state capitols and other cities as well as in Washington - are watching how they vote on Obama's/Dem's big spending bills. The town hall meetings did not change how the Dem leadership behaved, but it did sway a lot of moderate members of Congress, and these demonstrations, if they can be continued, may have the same effect.
