Last time Operation American Spring leader Harry Riley stopped by “The Alan Colmes Show,” he told Colmes that he was expecting a “gigantic, massive rally” that would “field about 10 to 20 million people in Washington, D.C. and we’re going to close it down.” In another interview, Riley guaranteed a “verified, validated” minimum of 10 million attendees ready to overthrow President Obama.
Of course, just over one hundred or so people ultimately showed up for the event, although one speaker put the figure at “four or five hundred people.”
But in an interview with Colmes last night, Riley said that thousands of people were present: “I think we probably had three or four thousand the first day.” He later added that “probably 1,000” activists are still on the National Mall pushing for Obama’s removal from office.
Declaring the event to be a success, Riley said Operation American Spring is now entering a second phase in its plan to oust President Obama and top administration officials.
“We’re still in that process, we were in a mobilization phase, now we’re in phase II of exercising our strength and length of phase.”
We actually stopped by the National Mall on Saturday, the second day of Operation American Spring, and found fewer than ten OAS supporters present.
Including these activists, who seemed to be leaving.
