Tea Party Rally May Have Drawn Bigger Crowd than Obama Speech in Berlin

Tea Party Rally May Have Drawn Bigger Crowd than Obama Speech in Berlin

When Barack Obama gave a speech in Berlin in 2008, he drew a crowd of 200,000. Wednesday’s speech at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate was a little less popular. White House pool reporter Elmar Jakobs estimated the crowd at only 4,500.

Obama’s Berlin crowd may also have been smaller than the crowd of several thousand who turned out for the Tea Party Patriots’ ‘Audit the IRS’ rally and for a rally against the immigration bill held at the Capitol on Wednesday. One unofficial estimate put the crowd size at 7,000 to 10,000 at its peak. Both rallies lasted several hours.
