Sounds just like something you would hear at a Tea Party or Beck's Rally. Does It not?
"This is a defining moment in America. Are you American?" Schultz told the raucous crowd. "This is no time to back down. This is time to fight for America."Ed Schultz, host of "The Ed Show" on MSNBC. This was the Rally that took place in Washington DC yesterday. Many that were there were PAID to be there. They travel was paid. Their Hotel was paid. This was an organized, bought and paid for Rally. According to the AP - DC rally shows support for struggling Democrats
With a month of campaigning to go and voter unhappiness high, the Democratic-leaning organizers hope the four-hour program of speeches and entertainment energizes activists who are crucial if Democrats are to retain their majorities in the House and Senate. The national mood suggests gains for the GOP, and Republicans are hoping to ride voter anger to gain control of the House and possibly the Senate.Now of course some of the Libs out there, and the MMD want you to believe that this Rally brought out the same or more people than Beck's Rally. Simply not true.
More than 400 organizations — ranging from labor unions to faith, environmental and gay rights groups — partnered for the event, which comes one month after Beck packed the same space with conservatives and tea party-style activists.
Organizers claimed they had as many participants as Beck's rally. But Saturday's crowds were less dense and didn't reach as far to the edges as they did during Beck's rally. The National Park Service stopped providing official crowd estimates in the 1990s.Clearly seen, this did not compare to the pure Emotion of those that were there for Becks. Those that took Vacation time. Sick time. Paid their own way. They were there because they WANTED To be and WANTED to participate. It is amazing how some of the things said at this thing, could have been taken right out of the Beck Rally.
AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka urged participants, including his union's members, to band together.That IS the Tea Party. "There is nothing, and I mean nothing, we can't do when we stand side by side, shoulder to shoulder. We will stand together. And we will win together. And we won't let anyone — and I mean anyone — stand in our way." That includes the Republicans in the Establishment.
"There is nothing, and I mean nothing, we can't do when we stand side by side, shoulder to shoulder," Trumka said. "We will stand together. And we will win together. And we won't let anyone — and I mean anyone — stand in our way."
