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.Just so you know, "those people" are Obama's base.
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.
Say this about the state of the country nearly three years into the Obama administration: If this President didn't create this economic mess, he hasn't done very much to get us out of it.
At a time when there is this amazing shout from the streets - and even as those on the right sneer about "these people" down in Zuccotti Park as if their dissent is a form of dirty terrorism - Obama and his people will raise a billion dollars if they have to so they can keep him in office.
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?
By the way, here's the latest request for money the Obama campaign sent out Thursday:
"In the third fund-raising quarter of this year, 606,027 people donated to this campaign - even more than gave in the record-breaking previous quarter.
" ...We are focused on building an infrastructure that will help us win in 2012. ...Each quarter we set a combined goal for ourselves and our allies at the Democratic National Committee. We far exceeded our goal at $55 million this quarter ...
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.
