Barack Obama has come perilously close to endorsing the fast-growing Occupy Wall Street protests.
The President today said those holding sit-ins and rallies in New York and across the U.S. are expressing the frustrations of Americans over Wall Street practices and economic inequality.
The protests have slowly grown in size and attention over the last three weeks and now President Obama said he understands the public's concerns about how the nation's financial system works.
‘I think people are frustrated and the protesters are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works,’ Mr Obama said.
Failed former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has endorsed the protests as well. So did Bill Ayers, the unrepentant Weather Underground domestic terrorist whom Obama palled around with in his Chicago neighborhood (and the media wasn't interested in investigating).
The unions are now joining in, as is Code Pinko, whose co-founder was one of Obama's top campaign bundlers in 2008.
What do we have on display at these protests? Riff raff. A bunch of dregs, losers and other hippie misfits who haven't produced anything in their pathetic lives, with the exception of a turd. Yet they're out there using their Ipads, Iphones screaming about how evil rich people and capitalism is. And don't forget those "evil Joooooooooos" as well, as we've seen examples of anti-Semitism at these rallies.
Pelosi, Obama and other liberals are cheering these Communist-inspired, anti-Semites on, yet those of us who attended Tea Parties were called "unAmerican," "terrorists" (we never had unrepentant domestic terrorists endorsing us), "suicide bombers," and other assorted names. Obama, being the classless, uncivil son of a bitch he is, even called us "teabaggers," that sexual slur which was first passed around on his favorite network, MSNBC. False allegations of racism and racial slurs were attributed to us. Why? Because we dared to oppose the Democrats' attempt to take over our economy.
Rush Limbaugh, on his radio show today, thinks Obama is somehow involved in all this (Newsmax).
"There’s no doubt in my mind that the White House is behind this,” he said. “Obama is setting up riots. He is fanning the flames.”
The “anarchists” and “union thugs” who are rallying against corporate greed are Obama’s constituents, Limbaugh said.
“Occupy Wall Street is his base,” he said. “Those are his foot soldiers.”
Calling Obama’s news conference about the American Jobs Act this morning “incompetence on parade,” Limbaugh said the nearly $450 billion spending package has no chance of curing the economic ills.
“Somebody explain to me how spending $450 billion is going to get every bridge repaired, every school repaired, every road repaired,” he said. “This is utter foolishness.”
Obama is “trying to sell the notion that this bill . . . is a magic elixir,” Limbaugh said.
“He’s the one screwing everybody,” he said. “He’s the one happily managing the decline of the United States of America.”
I don't doubt it. Look at who is all involved as I mentioned earlier....Code Pinkos, SEIU, the unions Obama's "army" as union thug leader James Hoffa Jr. said on labor day. All have links or relationships with Obama.
At his blog Beer, Bicycles and the VWRC, Deekman (who comments here) wrote the following, and he's seen all this happen in his state of Wisconsin.
It has been predicted any number of times that the Left will become more desperate and take stronger action the more they see power slipping away.
The facts (at least as I see them):
- The Obama Presidency is a disaster and has done more to harm the cause of Socialism-Progressivism than anyone thought possible.
- The strength of the Union movement is falling faster than anyone expected it could. With the loss of blue-collar manufacturing jobs, unions turned to the service sector, then teachers and government workers. Now those, too are in danger of falling apart.
- The TEA Party rose from the disaffected Conservatives who work and live their daily lives, pay their bills and watch as those who are "connected" and those who choose to not work scam the system and rip off the taxpayer. The irresponsible and even the nefarious are bailed out while the rest of us get to "suck it". The corruption in government and the collusion between the government and favored industries has made the electorate decidedly unhappy.
- Social Programs have proven to be a bust. Unsustainable and bankrupt. The taxpayer is unwilling to continue to foot the bill.
- Regulatory agencies, accountable to no one have far exceeded their authority and the public knows it. They are in a particularly foul mood over agencies like EPA.
The Left is in full retreat and began their last stand in Madison, Wisconsin in February of 2011. The full force of those on the Left who feel entitled to take was on display on Capitol Square. Their mission was to intimidate a duly elected state government into doing something other than that for which they were elected. They failed.
....The "Day of Rage" seems to have been organized via social networking and had little in the way of support. I recall the news reports indicating a "few hundred" in New York and "a few dozen" at locations elsewhere. Now the Unions and professional organizers and assorted Leftists have become involved. Remember that these are now people who have a certain amount of power and are willing to use it. They will resort to any type of behavior that furthers their aims
I believe this is their last stand and ours as well. This will be remembered as the point that the adults asserted themselves to restore sanity to the country or where we allowed the children to take over. This may die off when the weather gets crappy. But it may not. The closer the 2012 election gets, the more you will see and the more violent it will become. Any Conservative politician or candidate will be a target. anyone who has "more" and is not on "their" side will be a target.
Count on it.
When I heard people like the Congressional Black Caucus and that liar Andre Carson using hateful rhetoric earlier this summer (conservatives want to hang them from trees, he said), I had a bad feeling of what was coming on the horizon. Hoffa said what he said on Labor Day and the Regime acted like they didn't care. Forget Dick Morris idea that Obama will drop out....these demonstrations are a "crisis he's not letting go to waste." He's also using them to distract attention from the mounting corruption of his Regime that makes the Nixon White House and Watergate look like they stole candy from a 7/11.
And you thought Sarah Palin shouldn't run because she'd get negative attention from the press that would help re-elect Obama? Hang on folks, we're going to be in for a bumpy ride for the next 13 months.
