White House Draws Closer To Occupy Wall Street, Says Obama Is Fighting For Interests Of The 99%
businessinsider.com ^ | Oct. 16, 2011 | Zeke Miller

Posted on 10/16/2011 6:04:27 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

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.

Rush is right. Obama is trying to demagogue popular unrest — violent popular unrest. They want nothing less than to force a confrontation that will result in chaos.

Goodwin’s Law to one side, it’s a pattern that has been used before.

LOL!!! Obama is a big part of the problem. He supports the very top (Warren Buffet and other globalists) and the very bottom. He despises the middle class and is doing his best to destroy us. He, the rest of the dems, and many of the globalist republicans are the problem.

Seems to me he’s running a “primary like” campaign. His progressive base was leaving him so he’s throwing them some red meat by tacking hard to the left. He’ll begin to soften his message after the convention next year to appeal to independents. Not a bad strategy, and yes he’s pure evil, but tactically it’s his best bet.

It’s in 99% of Americans’ interest for Obama to be run out of office on January 20th, 2013.

As Obama continues to associate himself with a global movement that has gone violent in its global protest, he finds himself on unsteady ground to be a sitting president siding with anarchists.

Obama will make it clear that he is fighting to make certain that the "interests of 99 percent of Americans are well represented" —

The moron-in-chief hasn't gotten the memo :
Just because a small group of filthy, hedonistic, unproductive, drug-addled idle losers announce that they represent 99% of the population, doesn't make it so.

If they in fact did, we would all be still grubbing for worms and bugs and wearing bark (mustn't molest the animals.) We would be burning faggots for light and burning dung for heat.

Just for the record, 99% of my family, friends and acquaintances oppose your "government jobs" bill, Hussein, along with 90% of the programs you have advanced, and the massive deficit you have accumulated.

Get a clue!

Dear Obama, leave the revolution to the professionals. All you are gonna do is get a whole bunch of occupying counter revolutionaries killed, while causing the US to slip into another great depression. Of course, that could be your sinister plan all along.

Thanks for posting this.

One thing I’ve noticed is that there has been a paucity of polls showing wide support for the flea baggers.

Call me suspicious but I bet they are polling very low in public support.

Obama is the king of crony capitalism (Solyndra), which is partly what Occupy Wall Street is fussing about. They’re also mad about the big banks getting a bailout but they were forced to take money so that Zero could regulate them into oblivion. Once you take money from the government and you’re a business, watch out because you just gave up your control.
