    At this point, I'm really not sure.  I do think the people in Washington need a huge wake-up call about why they are there and who they actually work for.  I'm disgusted about the treatment these protestors have received fromthe mainstream media and the White House mouthpieces.

    I don't think they've convinced many people that Obama is a Nazi, a Communist, a racist or a fascist. They have raised some doubts about health care reform and his efforts to stimulate the economy.

    It very much depends on the messages, the placards, and the demonstrations. There are signs that stick in the memory ("Re-elect Gore!") that don't have any real political punch.Then there are signs that have so much punch, often in reverse, that the demo organizers try to disavow them. "Those racist signs aren't carried by Tea Party supporters. They'll all carried by 'liberals' who infiltrated the Party to give it a bad name!"
