The "million vet march " @ WWII memorial falls far short of goal
Numerous news sources including the conservative Washington Times report that "hundreds " of demonstrators gathered at Lafayette Square ( most reported the number to be 200 )' far short of the promised turn out. A call for truckers to block traffic saw a maximum of 12 trucks on the beltway and video of the streets near the mall showed only 3 trucks with the approx 200 protestors on foot. What did catch the attention of national media including FOX news was the disrespectfull throwing of national park fences onto the front gates of the White House. Around the world the picture is shown of US citizens trashing the symbol of our presidency. Images play in people's minds for years. Here in Virginia, GOP leaders are distressed how the past few days have increased a democarat lead in a normally red state with an election 3 weeks away.
