Compare the Obama Inauguration Aftermath with the Tea Party Aftermath
The aftermath of the Obama inauguration looked like this and I humorously suggested on January 21st, it was probably meant to be Obama's first stimulus (jobs) program; the massive clean-up, that is.
I searched long and hard to find aftermath pics of the vast Tea Party march on Washington. This is what I found: go to Gateway Pundit to see the photo-essay which shows the stark comparison between the two events.
The contrast is absolutely amazing, but not really so surprising.
Remember Dan's Bake Sale?
RUSH: Dan's Bake Sale. It all got started when Dan called and told me his friend was making copies of the Limbaugh Letter, a copyright violation, 'cause the wife wouldn't let him buy a subscription. And he wanted me to give him a freebie and, you know, these little kids are running around at that time doing bake sales, sending the proceeds to Clinton to retire the national debt, and Clinton was keeping the money and praising this as good civics and good citizenship. So that's where the bake sale idea came from. And all of this happened to help this guy get $29.95, and this guy, with all of this that went on at his benefit, this guy ran out of his own baked goods in five minutes. In five or ten minutes the stuff that he had done was all gone, and then Dan tried to do Dan's Bake Sales all over the country on his own, which, I mean he didn't have a platform. I mean, he had a golden opportunity to score big with the bake sale, but he ran out of his baked goods very quickly. But there were 65,000 people there, there was not one mess. When we were finished and everybody left, there was not a mess. There wasn't one arrest, 70,000 people, not one arrest, not one. It was a great day.
This weekend's unprecedented March on Washington was like a giant "Dan's Bake Sale!" The same people were there times 10! Hard working, God-fearing, easy-going, patriotic, conservative Americans who are used to doing things for themselves and others (like respecting private and public property and maintaining civility.)
Whereas it appears the crowd at the inauguration had no regard for anything but themselves and fully expected someone else to clean up their mess, generally speaking, of course.
What a contrast between the two groups!
