Another hot topic was Rep. Joe Wilson, who yelled "You lie!" at President Obama during his national health care address on Thursday. Many protesters held signs saying "Obama— you DO lie!" and some participants called for Wilson to run for President.

Jenny Beth Martin, one of the organizers of the 9/12 march and the head of TeaPartyPatriots.org, played off Obama's recent speech as well. Obama claimed that "the time for bickering is over. The time for games has passed."

"Are you playing games?" asked Martin, over the loudspeaker.

Hundreds of thousands of people yelled back a definitive "no."
