DNC Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) on Tuesday said the nationwide Occupy Wall Street protests are “symbolic of the frustration that middle class folks and working people feel that the wealthy always seem to have the wind at their backs.”
Appearing on MSNBC, Wasserman Schultz criticized Republicans for focusing on President Obama's job performance instead of developing proposals to help the middle class. She said the GOP's agenda would only “fatten the wallets of people who are already quite fortunate.”
“We understand their frustration, we applaud their activism and hopefully they’re going to help get the Republicans in Washington’s attention so we shift the Republican’s focus from just Barack Obama’s job, to everyone’s job,” she said of the protesters.
So since you applaud the protesters, do you applaud this as well, Thunderlips? (photos via @davidwebbshow, h/t Sister Toldjah)

"So, ultimately, the bourgeoisie won’t go without violent means. Revolution! Yes, revolution that is led by the working class.
Long live revolution! Long live socialism!”
Embrace it and you own it now! Including all those Che Guevara flags and t-shirts, as well as those who crap on police cars.
She is right, this is a great distraction from the failures of the era of Hopey Changey.
