    I think you are granting those people with a clarity of vision that I see no evidence they are evincing. At this point, they are a crudely aimable mob - and Obama thinks they are his mob. I don't see them turning on him, though I would love to be wrong.

    Re: Obama extends support for protesters

    I hope no one is going to claim surprise about this, because after all he at the vary least partially responsible with his repeated play the blame game and his class war fair idiocy.

    If you look into I'm sure you find that this nonsense that is going on because it's called for in the Cloward–Piven strategy, that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of "a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty".

    Next take look into the Alensky's Rules for Radicals which says in part "The first step in community organization is community disorganization."

    Through a process combining hope and resentment, the organizer tries to create a "mass army" that brings in as many recruits as possible from local organizations, churches, services groups, labor unions, corner gangs, and individuals.According to Alinsky, the main job of the organizer is to bait an opponent into reacting.Keep in mind that Obama was a Community Activist.

    Guess who is next up who contributes in the game plan? He said: "All great movements are popular movements. They are the volcanic eruptions of human passions and emotions, stirred into activity by the ruthless Goddess of Distress or by the torch of the spoken word cast into the midst of the people."

    "He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future."

    "How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think."

    These are of course Hitler quotes.

    All of this is being used to provoke those who are easily lead but the nose and not ever know they were sheeple the whole time.

    The scary part is, if obama wasn't pres he would be carrying a sign at the protest, shouting at cops, smoking pot and defecating on police cars.

    Obama can't gain from this. He'll try, no doubt. To gain he actually has to do something about what is being complained about. He can't. He has the biggest Wall Street stooge sitting at his right hand at the Treasury.

    Those who vote know that more of Obama's "stimulus" is not the answer. Will he get college loans forgiven? Of course not. Will he get a large increase in the minimum wage? Of course not. Will he argue to reinstitute Glass/Steagal? Of course not. Will he actually try and raise the tax on Capital Gains? Of course not.

    He may give a pretty speech but nobody buys his speeches any longer. He can't even get a bump any longer when he gives them.

    Thanks, but you realize this completely dismantles the assumptions made in the OP.

    This is "Progress"? Count me out, count me against this insanity. I don't care if a banker has 4 houses, three yachts and an Island home. ROCK ON MAN, more power to you. I don't have claim to one penny of your wealth, I only have aspirations of similar success.

    How pathetic it is, to think fellow Americans believe they have some claim on another persons wealth, property or success.
    How pathetic it is, that fellow Americans can't tell the difference between success and robbing the poor to satiate the rich, or can't tell the difference between "make a more fair playing field" and "equal out all income."

    Nobody has suggested communism. If you seriously can't tell the difference between communism and "stop letting banks steal money from us," I don't know what to tell you.

    Swiped from another thread.



    Yeah, End the Fed. I don't think that's an Obama position. Hopefully it does mean we stay out of Iran for another year or so.

    Obama would have to make some massive changes in order to win over the OWS crowd. A lot of them probably voted him in 2008 but probably won't or will have to hold their noses to vote for him this year.

    IMO most of them that did in 2008, that actually decide to take the time to vote this time will vote for him again but he has little to gain here. They aren't going to vote for Cain, especially after his "cling" moment.

    It's more likely to be a case where like others who thought he would live up to his promises but haven't, just end up not supporting anyone.
