    Occupy Protestors Mobilize for Obama Visit

    Well, at least, "more than 100" (it's the NYTimes) did. be interesting to see if this spreads across the movement. like i've been saying for some time now, the starry eyed college students who rushed the polls in 2008 are the embittered un and under employed of 2012.

    More than 100 Occupy Wall Street protesters marched to a Midtown hotel on Wednesday night to protest a fund-raising event for President Obama...

    Demonstrators held signs that leveled some of the Occupy protest’s most pointed criticism to date of the president. “Obama is a corporate puppet,” one said. “War crimes must be stopped, no matter who does them,” read another, beside head shots of President George W. Bush and President Obama.


    One man, wearing a mask of the president’s face and holding a cigar, carried a sign that read, “I sold out!”
    Ben Campbell, 28, one of the march’s organizers, said he hoped to prove to skeptics of the protests that the demonstrators were political critics of equal opportunity.


    “President Obama is coming to town solely to raise money from the richest of the rich,” Mr. Campbell said....

    It must make yourself feel good to think that about Obama supporters. For every "starry eyed college student" support of Obama, there is one meth-addicted trailer park piece of trash conservative. See ya.

    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    I guess people are waking up from the dream of hope and change. Question: Do you think they'll fall for it again during the 2012 elections?

    I don't think the Occupy people generally represent the base on either side of the partisan coin. They are against the whole establishment and want system-wide changes, especially in the way congress accepts bribes and in how economic policy is formed. People keep calling them leftists yet they fail to acknowledge that OWS took place under a Dem governor, in a left-leaning State, in a Dem Federal environment. It makes no difference.
