by the numbers

President Obama regularly appears in front of crowds of 10,000 to 20,000 who gather to hear him speak. During his campaign last October, 2008, he appeared before crowds of 75,00 and 100,000 people at rallies in Kansas City and St. Louis.

On October 26, 2009, George W. Bush spoke at a motivational rally in Ft. Worth, the conjoined twin city to his current hometown of Dallas--in the the "home" state in which he remains most popular. He was governor of Texas before he went to Washington as a two-term president. The post-event excitement in the press is that he spoke in front of a crowd of 15,000 people.

I'm surprised there were that many...

15,000 nutters? Why, that's less than 0.005% of the population. Not bad for America.
