Washington, D.C.

"Beck for President"

During the Bush administration protestors frequently took to the National Mall to demonstrate their opposition to the Iraq War. Proving that protesting isn't just for the Left, tens of thousands of anti-government protestors demonstrated at the National Mall on Saturday. Make no mistake, though. This was not so much anti-government rally as it was an anti-Obama festival. Obama's proposed overhaul of the healthcare system was concern number one but protestors also were very vocal in their opposition to everything else Obama has done. Even more than not liking his policies they seem to just not like him him. More than one protestor held up signs calling for Obama's immediate impeachment. And who should be his replacement? One popular suggestion was FOX News host Glenn Beck.
