Democrats see minefield in Occupy protests
By The Associated Press Wednesday, November 16, 2011
So far, Democrats have tried to have it both ways - embracing the movement's economic concerns while steering clear of its rougher edges.
"I think people feel separated from their government," President Barack Obama told ABC News. "They feel that their institutions are not looking out for them." The president has said his jobs plan, which would boost taxes on high earners, is a way to address some of the protesters' concerns.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has gone a step further, posting a petition, "100,000 Strong Standing With Occupy Wall Street," that blames Republican policies for the nation's economic discontent.

An Obama “approved” Molotov cocktail through a window at Macy’s would have some interesting effects!
Anyone with half a brain knows that the “Oh We Stink” crowd
is made up of pure Marxist Obots.
They are his people.
What a STUPID statement! Punishing the successful job creators to please a bunch of filthy communists FAILS every time it is tried. The concerns of the protesters are selfish, self-serving, and UNJUST.
I do not think that the people of this country want more failed policies featuring government jobs being awarded to cronies and Democrats. That approach is NOT the way to return us to prosperity.
OH, if only it were true!!!
I feel the government looking over my shoulder every day.
Every minute I feel the governments reaching in my pocket and taking my money from me because I wouldnt spend it right if they let me keep it.
Every day I feel the push of the government to do things their way instead of the way I would do them if left to my own judgment.
No Barak, I feel the government is smothering me with the way they look out for me.
The US government is an over protective mother.
It is like giving a kid its way every time it throws a tantrum, and then when it ends up in prison, oh where did we go wrong.
You should finish that last sentence as Samuel Jackson would finish it.
OH, if only it were true!!!
Too late. Obama told them to put on their marchin’ shoes - and they did. And they got the full support of the democrat party right out of the box. It’s all on tape ready to roll.
The Democratic Party is the party of left-wing extremists. It’s time they owned up to the reality.
Just a bunch of ANGRY BIRDS nesting.
Too late... you putrid dim turds own ows... **** you dims... you are rat bastards all!
I bet most of these so-called protesters voted DIM always through their wasted lives. This human-debris is DIM.
Hey, Occupiers, do you feel USED? All Dems LOVED you at the beginning but now you have become exactly what WE knew you would become and you are a liability. Now you will ALL be thrown under the bus for Political Expediency. Hahahahahahaha!
Wasting away again in my Obamaville........with apologies to J Buffett.
