I am not sure who are the bigger fools, those occupying Wall St. or those that are going to sit on the sidelines this coming election and let these people get another four years in control of the federal government.
Recently the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee jumped on the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) support bandwagon with a “petition” page where you can send a message to Speaker of the House John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. The pre-made message implores them that “It’s time for millionaires, billionaires, and Big Oil companies to pay their fair share.” Their goal is 100,000 strong standing with Occupy Wall Street.
Joe “I’m with Bozo” Biden has said “What is the core of that protest, and why is it increasing in terms of the people it’s attracting? The core is the bargain has been breached with the American people. The American people do not think the system is fair or on the level.”
Joe is standing with the OWS crowd. So is Rep Steny Hoyer (Liberal-MD). He defended the OWS crowd from criticism leveled at them by Cantor.
So isn’t it a little strange that Mr. Biden had a special lunch today (10/13/11). The fact that Joe had lunch isn’t strange, but who he entertained and rubbed elbows with is. Plus, I am sure that the folks down at Occupy Wall Street would find it reprehensible if John Boehner had lunch with these people. But since it was the liberal faction it’s ok.
See Joe attended a State Department luncheon on Thursday. It was put on for the President of South Korea, Lee Myung-bak. Now it may have been rude of Joe to turn down the invitation but considering that he supports OWS should he and House Minority Whip, Rep Steny Hoyer (Liberal-MD) really have sat at the same table as:
Lewis B Kaden, vice chairman at Citigroup; Michael K. Wirth, Chevron Corporation’s executive vice president for Downstream & Chemicals, and banker James B. Flaws, vice chairman and chief financial officer of Corning Incorporated?
Aren’t these the same people the OWS crowd is protesting against? Aren’t they the embodiment of all that is evil in the US right now? These guys are big money, big oil, and big credit. These are the 1%, aren’t they?
So how come JoJo and his wonder mutt Steny sat with them. Surely the VP of the United States has enough pull to get moved to a different table? Or have these guys moved to a different table?
The OWS crowd is being played like Nero’s fiddle and the Dems are engaging in class warfare. This is the Cloward-Piven Strategy coming to fruition. The OWS crowd has no clue what they are protesting for (other than the abolishment of the 1%ers), they think the liberals, especially Obama, are on their side and they don’t care what happens to America. But, to paraphrase Rahm Emmanuel, this crisis is just too good to waste.
What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know.
