“Occupy Wall Street — the Beginning of Obama’s Campaign”

As one month of "Occupy Wall Street” passes, it’s fascinating how media and politicians alike, with one or two exceptions, have managed a remarkable suspension of disbelief when it comes to the organized source of these open-air leftist animal houses. - Tammy Bruce at Newsmax

These are not protests against Wall Street, they’re protests for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign and are organized and directed by a number of his campaign supporting organizations, including one of his favorite — the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). It is also an indication of a virtual meltdown of the left, but could succeed if the GOP continues to fumble the ball in response.

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has gone out of her way to portray the occupests as a spontaneous action by frustrated Americans.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Here’s how it’s supposed to work: Obama knows he’s failed, causing one disaster after another. He cannot run on his record, he can’t even have it as an issue. He needs to be an innocent bystander as he stands right next to the fire he created.

He accomplishes this by doing what leftists do best — creating a shiny false crisis, a straw man, to be the new fall guy for the disastrous economic situation his failed policies and contempt for this nation have delivered to each of our front doors.

This new shiny enemy is, of course, the big and generic “Wall Street.” From the beginning it was clear once they demonized Wall Street the next move would be to attach Republicans, and the Republican presidential candidates especially, to the new, shiny and evil “rich bankers from Wall Street.”

The fantasy of this false crisis is to get both “rich bankers” and Republicans blamed for a disaster entirely of Obama’s making.

All of this is now taking place, with Obama praising the mob, and his chief adviser David Axelrod directly attaching Republican candidates to the new enemy.

Amazingly, the GOP candidates, with the exception of Herman Cain, seem completely oblivious to the fact the occupy protests are the Obama campaign, run not only by the SEIU but also a front group for the disgraced ACORN, an entity whom he told in 2007 would be involved in the shaping of his presidential agenda.
