Well we found the perfect anthem for the dupes at Zoo-cotti Park who are willing to give their Hope and Change voice to forces they know not, again. They want to change the world but they don’t know what to do, so they leave it up to… who?:
…tell me where is sanity
Tax the rich, feed the poor
Till there are no rich no more
I’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you
Don’t lend or give your voice to nameless forces. Don’t trade reason for madness. It only helps Barack Obama. Doubt what we say? Doubt no longer:
“Obama plans to turn anti-Wall Street anger on Mitt Romney, Republicans
President Obama and his team have decided to turn public anger at Wall Street into a central tenet of their reelection strategy.“
Corrupt and treacherous Obama received more money from Wall Street than any other presidential candidate ever but he will dupe the dupes of Zoo-cotti Park for his benefit – and we’re supposed to stay silent?
Oh, but, isn’t it good that Obama is finally attacking Wall Street and the corruption that looted the American economy? If you believe that you are either stupid or yearning to be a dupe. It’s the same old trick Obama used to dupe victims of Exelon into believing he was on their side but behind the scenes he used those fools who believed him. It’s the same trick Obama used to destroy health care reform in Illinois when he sided with insurers while pretending to side with the dupes who believed him.
“We intend to make it one of the central elements of the campaign next year.” That’s a quote from David Plouffe. So if you want to be a dupe for Obama be a dupe for Obama but don’t say we did not warn you or that we did not tell you so – that’s an excuse too many now use to explain why they voted for Obama.
The dupes from Occupy Walls Street are a too convenient distraction for Obama 2012. A lot of dupes fell for Obama distraction from his filthy record in 2008. One such dupe is Mike Lupica who attacked Hillary Clinton and her supporters (with violent and sexist language only a frat boy can love). Now Mike Lupica is learning bit by bit that Obama cannot be trusted and that something is very wrong at Zoo-cottie Park (and he rewrites what we wrote days ago):
“Occupy Wall Street protesters should aim their wrath at Fundraiser-in-Chief Obama [snip]
“Where do you suppose they go next?”
A better question? When do they head to Washington and start yelling about a President who often looks like the Fundraiser-in-Chief, trying to keep his job backed by what might become the richest campaign in history, in a jobless country going broke.
It’s why you wonder if there will come a day when the house that Occupy Wall Street is standing in front of isn’t Jamie Dimon’s on Park Ave., it is the White House. [snip]
At a time when the protesters, and God bless them, put big money and big corporations on notice, how long before they go after the corporation that is the Obama campaign, just so they don’t look like part of it? [snip]
In the next several months, while Republican candidates spend like crazy just trying to get the nomination, Obama for America will relentlessly fund-raise on a daily basis, adding to an already amazing war chest.
Then next year, when the time is right, they will do exactly what they say the Republicans want to do to them: Spend hundreds of million of dollars defining the other guy as negatively as possible before the other guy can accumulate the money to fight back. Make the issue the opponent and not the economy.
At which point Obama will continue to be so much more brilliant as a candidate for President than he has been a President, to the point where you really start to believe we would have been better off if Hillary had won.”
Too late to take back your violent/sexist hatred of Hillary Clinton and support of Obama in 2008 Lupica. As to the nonsense dreams and hopes (a retread of the 2008 Obama blank screen strategy) about Occupy Wall Street turning on Obama and protesting at the White House and Occupy Lafayette Park – if they do that the labor unions and all the behind the scenes manipulators will fade away and try to create splinter groups
But what are we talking about? Pshaw. The behind the scenes manipulators are hard at work. It’s the “Coffee Party” fakes all over again.
Whatever rational arguments can be made on behalf of Occupy Wall Street, the bottom line is that no one knows who is behind the curtain, manipulating with HOPE And CHANGE, the dupes and the wannabee dupes. Rest assured that if there is a YearlyKooks style “convention” next year it’s sole goal will be to nominate Barack Obama as Emperor Extraordinarious and Savior of the Nation.
And where ever there is a pro Obama group posing as nonpartisan (recall Al Sharpton and Donna Brazile) Big Media will be there to pimp. It’s Half-A-Cane Irene, the hyped up destroyer of New York City all over again:
“The Truth About Occupy Wall Street: It’s Much Smaller Than It Seems” [snip]
Nothing about Occupy Wall Street is what it seems. Sure, the month-long protest has launched more passionate theories than any event since the publication of Freud’s The Interpretation of Dreams. [snip]
How do I convey this respectfully as a veteran of the 1960s? This is not the 1967 Pentagon March or anything like it. Nothing I saw in New York this week justifies the current level of the-whole-world-is-watching media coverage. At times in Zuccotti Park, there seemed to be almost as many reporters (many of them from foreign news outlets) as overnight campers.”
To a very large extent Occupy Wall Street dupes have already accomplished what they are intended to do: DISTRACT.
The distraction has been most successful. Other events have been crowded out of the news.
Consider some news distracted from by Zoo-cotti Park:
“PANETTA: Without telling you that decisions have been made, and no decisions have been made, I can give you an example. For example, if we decide that we’ve got to maintain our force structure presence in the Pacific in order to deal with China and China’s expanding role in that part of the world and because of the other issues that exist in that very sensitive part of the world. And if we decide that the Middle East is also a very important area where we have to maintain a presence as well then just by virtue of the numbers that we’re dealing with, we will probably have to reduce our presence elsewhere, our presence perhaps in Latin America, our presence in Africa and so if you’re talking about risk, part of the risk would be having less of a presence in those areas.”
Yesterday, two days after Panetta fretted about “our presence in Africa” the United States is in a land war in Africa because Obama is sending 100 US combat troops to Uganda. Of course it won’t just be Uganda as advertised because the
Occupy Uganda Lord Resistance Army troops are operating in the Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Congo. What’s next from Boob Obama – a land war in Asia?
Consider the distraction from Occupy Wall Street and who the distraction benefits. How Did Obama Know About Fast And Furious Before Holder?
That’s from Obama lovin’ CNN, not Fox News or Glenn Beck.
Consider the distraction from Ron Brownstein’s report: “Obama’s Performance Rating Slips Again Disapproval of Obama’s agenda has begun to harden among voters.”
Consider the distraction from this story:
“Oklahoma billionaire George Kaiser has been in the headlines in recent months thanks to his role as a major investor in Solyndra LLC, the now-bankrupt California solar panel maker hailed by President Obama as a model for America’s “clean energy future.” [snip]
Because Kaiser was a campaign “bundler” – an individual who collects contributions to a candidate from others that are then simultaneously given to the candidate – who raised about $250,000 for Obama during the 2008 campaign, congressional Republicans and media analysts have speculated that the Solyndra loan guarantee was nothing more than using tax dollars to reward a political supporter.
But the Solyndra scandal is far from Kaiser’s first brush with political controversy. As the Sunlight Foundation’s Bill Allison reports today, Kaiser has become extraordinarily wealthy by taking advantage of the federal tax code in ways that some tax experts – including the IRS – believe to be illegal.
As Allison describes it in his Sunlight post today, “in one six year period, during which he increased his net worth enough to land him on the Forbes list of the 400 wealthiest Americans, Kaiser reported taxable income to the Internal Revenue Service just once, totaling $11,699–equivalent to a full-time hourly wage of $5.62.”
Where is Warren Buffett’s secretary on this? No doubt distracted by the Zoo-cottie Park fun.
Hidden behind the distraction curtain the Obama White House refuses to turn over all internal documents related to Solyndra to investigators. The Obama White House is also fighting a court ruling that “Secret Service records of visitors to the White House complex are subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act.” Most transparent White House ever. Investigators can’t get in but Malik Shabazz can get in (now is that Malik Shabazz the Black Panther Obama was with in Selma and the same Malik who was busy intimidating voters and being an all about race-baiter?)
“But, but, but, but” reply the dupes and wannabee dupes “haven’t these stories been reported? How did you find out about it if they haven’t been reported.?” Well we are not easily distracted.
We’re not distracted by NO CLASS Obama. Not his manners but the budget gimmick that now threatens the entire Obama health scam. The Obama HHS was forced to abandon the boondoggle of Obamacare because it is fiscally unworkable.
The easily distracted supported the Obama health scam even as the logical knew it was all a boondoggle by Ted Kennedy who gave us the boondoggle Obama White House:
“The Obama administration Friday pulled the plug on a major program in the president’s signature health overhaul law – a long-term care insurance plan dogged from the beginning by doubts over its financial solvency. [snip]
Known as CLASS, the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports program was a longstanding priority of the late Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. [snip]
But a central design flaw dogged CLASS. Unless large numbers of healthy people willingly sign up during their working years, soaring premiums driven by the needs of disabled beneficiaries would destabilize it, eventually requiring a taxpayer bailout.
After months insisting that could be fixed, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, finally admitted Friday she doesn’t see how. [snip]
That’s the same conclusion a top government expert reached in 2009. Nearly a year before the health care law passed, Richard Foster, head of long-range economic forecasts for Medicare warned administration and congressional officials that CLASS would be unworkable. His warnings were disregarded, as Obama declared his support for adding the long-term care plan to his health care bill.
The demise of CLASS immediately touched off speculation about its impact on the federal budget. Although no premiums are likely to be collected, the program still counts as reducing the federal deficit by about $80 billion over the next ten years. That’s because of a rule that would have required workers to pay in for at least five years before they could collect any benefits.
“The CLASS Act was a budget gimmick that might enhance the numbers on a Washington bureaucrat’s spreadsheet but was destined to fail in the real world,” said Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.”
It was always a budget gimmick. Many will not hear the news of the lack of Obama CLASS because Occupy Wall Street occupies their minds and their TV screens.
Don’t get distracted by Occupy Wall Street antics at Zoo-cotti Park. We won’t.
