Obama: Violent OWS Protests Just Like the Tea Party or Something

Except for his astroturfed stunt being endorsed by the ChiComs, Hugo Chavez, Iranian mullahs, Mumia Abu-Jamal, frothing anti-Semites, the Communist Party, Nazis, and bums defecating on police cruisers, well, sure, they're just like the Tea Party.
President Obama, who has become a target of the Occupy Wall Street protests sweeping the country, today embraced the economic frustration voiced on the streets and said in an exclusive interview with ABC News that his vision for the U.S. economic system is best suited to resolve protesters’ concerns.

“I understand the frustrations being expressed in those protests,” Obama told ABC News senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper in the interview to air this evening on ABC News “Nightline” from Jamestown, N.C.

“In some ways, they’re not that different from some of the protests that we saw coming from the Tea Party. Both on the left and the right, I think people feel separated from their government. They feel that their institutions aren’t looking out for them,” he said.
Tea partiers also had a beef about Obama driving us off the cliff with his reckless spending, yet his OWS supporters actually want more spending.
“The most important thing we can do right now is those of us in leadership letting people know that we understand their struggles and we are on their side, and that we want to set up a system in which hard work, responsibility, doing what you’re supposed to do, is rewarded,” Obama said.
A couple of other minor differences: I never recall any tea partiers being arrested by the hundreds and tea partiers had a defined set of goals. Tea partiers have been demonized relentlessly by Obama and the left while this group of far-left anarchists have been endorsed and in some cases organized by the same media.

But yeah, outside of that, I can hardly tell them apart.

"Obama: Violent OWS Protests Just Like the Tea Party or Something"

Yes, and just like Omama's policies and other lies, no one is buying it. Omama couldn't sell Ice in the desert. He, and the rest of the dems are desperate. They're gonna own this deja vu 1968 garbage movement to their complete regret.

And when it's all over and they're voted out in 2012 they'll blame it on a failed message, right-wing lies, and/or anything but their own failed policies. Piss on em!
