As Questionable Support for The OWS Grows, Obama Climbs on The Bus


Hey, the "Occupy Wall Street" gang has now garnered the support of China. This is in addition to all those other stellar folks, blokes, and notorious groups who have jumped on board the disenfranchised trust fund babies train who majored in useless courses at robber baron universities (yeah, they're in it for the big bucks too ... go figure) and now are complaining they actually have to seek employment in a craptastic economy to pay back their student loans. (Side note: Reminder, ObamaCare took over student loans deep inside the 3000 page poison pill, with the intention of considering said loans "paid in full" if graduates simply went to work for the government/service sector ... indentured servitude, basically ... for whatever number of years deemed adequate.)

Back on track here ...

Early on, Obama tickled the idea of directly and outwardly supporting the OWS movement. Yesterday, at the dedication ceremony for the new MLK Jr. monument (designed and made in China) in Washington DC, Obama spoke on behalf of MLK saying he knows the civil rights leader would have supported the OWS. Okay...

Now, as he boards the bus (made in Canada) to make a non-campaign campaign tour to push his bipartisan rejected 'jobs bill' Mr. Obama tells the 99%ers he is fighting for them:

The White House continued its embrace of the Occupy Wall Street protests on Sunday, using the strongest terms yet to identify President Barack Obama with the growing movement.

In a call previewing Obama's upcoming bus tour through North Carolina and Virginia, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama "will continue to acknowledge the frustration that he himself shares," about Washington's laggard response to the financial crisis.

Earnest added that while on the trip, Obama will make it clear that he is fighting to make certain that the "interests of 99 percent of Americans are well represented" — the first time the White House has used the term to differentiate the vast majority of Americans from the wealthy.


Maybe Obama's just ginning up the base that got him elected in 2008, but now feels ignored because he's not fundamentally transformed the USA into the change they hoped for at breakneck speed in his first 1000 days. But not to worry. While Obama muses that he feels their pain, the heavy water for this revolución is being, and will continue to be, crafted and carried by the ever loyal MSM. However, as more and more of the voting American public wake up to exactly what is occupying this movement, I doubt it will be a wise political move for re-election. Given Obama's proclivity for self-preservation in the last three years when things/people he has aligned himself with went sour, I wonder how long, and how bad the reason, before the OWS will get thrown under that Canadian-made Obama tour bus.
