Byron York: Why Big Labor couldn't match Glenn Beck's rally

The nation's biggest, richest and most powerful labor unions spent months organizing the "One Nation Working Together" rally at the Lincoln Memorial Saturday. With midterm elections approaching, they hoped to put on a show of political strength to energize struggling Democratic candidates. But even after giving it everything they had, they still weren't able to draw as many people as Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally in August. Why not?
Byron York, chief political correspondent for the Washington Examiner, looked at the "One Nation" Democrat rally held last weekend in D.C. and found why it was lacking when going up against the Glenn Beck rally held on August 28. Check out WizBang's image of both rallies (h/t to Connie for sending that over).

He found age and the same old, same old to be a big part of the problem ... not to mention the liberal groups and unions had to pay for people to attend ... free bus rides, free box lunches, free t-shirts, and free Metro fares.

Sounds to me as if the Democratic playbook is just plain worn out from running the same plays over and over and over. The American people are tired of that kind of leadership and have signaled they are ready to move on....
