Please post your updates from D.C. and from news reports here as well as your photos of the day.

Our Walter Reed salute to the troops last night was very well attended. Upwards of 800 people were there over the three-plus hours of the demonstration.

Photos and video taken by This Ain'tHell taken in daylight before the bulk of the crowd showed can be viewed here.

Free Republic 9/11 Candlelight Vigil from Washington DC

Update: 9-12 March on DC

not wrong at all.

Look, I have said some terrible things privately about Obama and I make no apology for them.

Evil is evil and I believe he is. He is evil, destructive, and must be stopped.

The mall covers 309 acres. If the average density of people is 10 sf per person, 1.2 million could make sense.

yunjid that sounds about right RT @nicopitney: I’d put crowd at 10-20k. Only crowded area is b/w Capitol and 3rd. First part of mall is 1/4 full.

Yeah 1.2 + million AMERICAN people are rallying for ObamaCare. MSNBC, MBC, Unversal and their parent general Eletric are SLIME!

Bump for the best of both worlds, C-span on puter and Beck on Tv watching in Las Vegas.

Wish I could be there. I’m sure Beck wishes that too. His brainchild and he’s stuck in the studio.

GREAT IDEA!

C-SPAN live feed:

http://www.c-span.org/Watch/C-SPAN_wm.aspx

CNN live feed:
http://www.cnn.com/video/flashLive/live.html?stream=stream2

has video and audio of speakers(live feed starts after a 15 second commercial)

FOX live feed:

http://interactive.foxnews.com/livestream/live.html?chanId=3

Has crowd pictures but, I can’t seem to get audio (except for some guitar muZak)

Pitting himself in direct opposition to American citizens instead of listening to them.

Therein lies the problem .... it's not about us, it's all about HIM so he only has to listen to the voices in his own head.

I guess we cannot expect the media to even come close to reporting the truth. I guess they'll be using camera angles to make the march look as small as possible.
