    All the complaining they're doing,, I don't see any of it directed towards Obama.

    I'd say no.

    Otherwise, they'd be occupying The Ellipse and Lafayette Square.

    Y'all keep forgetting that there are Paulists among the OWS crowd.

    Maybe some of them are...but if they admit it, then Janeane will call them a bunch of racists.

    I was at the occupy Los Angeles rally today and the main thing they were screaming about was the bank bailouts.

    Wasn't Obama president when that happened?

    Certainly the OWS movment has a lot more apologists for Obama than the Tea Party movement had.

    But I doubt that most OWS folks are especially thrilled with the guy.

    It started under Bush and continued under Obama.

    I only ever hear 'corporate greed' but nothing about 'government greed' from the OWES crowd.

    The answer to the OP question is, of course, yes.

    Have you actually been to any of the protests? There are always one or two signs that blame Obama for selling out to the corporate interests in one way or another. It's not the most prominent subject of course, but he's not given a pass, trust me.

    In fact, many of these people are the same ones who worked on Obama's campaign in 2008, and they wouldn't be protesting at all if he had lived up to his own hype. He has been a serious disappointment.
