Skip to comments.We petition the Obama administration to: Recognize the men and women who are occupying wall street

Mr.Obama, this is a petition for you to publicly recognize, whether in a live speech, or in one of your weekly youtube addresses, the #occupywallstreet movement that is currently taking place in NYC.
These men and women are trying to send a message to their fellow Americans and to the world- the big banks and the super-rich, who is "buying out congress", are the primary drivers of the ongoing recession.
Unfortunately, they are largely being ignored by the media in the United States due to the "small size" of the protests. Note that "small size" has not deterred Fox, CNN and other US news channels/newspapers from covering, and even putting on the front page, Tea Party and other far right protests, some of which have had as little as 100 people (#occupywallst varies from 500-3000)
And just what would that message be? Hint: When you've been protesting for two months under an intense media spotlight and still nobody knows what you are protesting - you don't have a message.
Yes, please Obama... associate yourself with these losers even more (than we know you already are)
If, as they say, ignorance is bliss then these people are the most blissful bunch in the history of the human race.
Plus they prolly want to be out of the cold before december
What a yawn.
These people have trouble understanding life. I feel sorry for them.
I agree, they should all be recognized!
Photographs and fingerprints.
I recognize them. They’re the same smelly, unwashed
bunch of losers who made the sacrifice of 59,000
American lives in Vietnam a wasted effort, who spat
upon American Marines, soldiers, sailors and Coast
Guardsme and called them “Baby killers.” Yes, it’s
easy to recognize who they are.
These OWS people are either incredibly stupid, or deliberately misdirecting...
The problem isn't the "super-rich" and "big banks" buying out congress, the problem is that the congressmen themselves are for sale. The politicians, corrupt to the core, are the problem. If we had decent, honest people (and I realize that those characteristics are antithetical to being a politician) in office, banks and "the super-rich" wouldn't be able to "buy" them.
Besides, Obama is the biggest item in the store, and he's been bought and paid for many times over already.
I just read an article here at FR claiming the OWS story has captured the world`s attention; here, they claim there is a news blackout on the story. Which is the truth? Whichever you FEEEEL like should be the truth! OWS a history-making worldwide tide of populism, or a struggling, dwindling rabble? YOU decide!
OWS is the New Coke of `spontaneous political demonstrations.`
Most people can recognize the stench and the drumbeats coming from the ignorant useless idiots.
Guess what? Nobody cares, not even your fearless hypocritical leader.
May I add an amendment to your petition? Resign or be Impeached, Obama. “WE JUST CAN’T WAIT!”
