    I wish Mr. Obama good luck with that strategy. :cuckoo:

    .....he really has a very low opinion of the American electorate. He should too, they elected him. :lol:

    So, rather than advocate for a truly free the marketplace, the socialist loon who wrote that propaganda suggests doing a "better" job of rigging the game.

    Little wonder a dusthead like you would approve.

    But this is what's happening:

    The scapegoat strategy - The Washington Post

    "What do you do if you can’t run on your record — on 9 percent unemployment, stagnant growth and ruinous deficits as far as the eye can see? How to run when you are asked whether Americans are better off than they were four years ago and you are compelled to answer no?

    Play the outsider. Declare yourself the underdog. Denounce Washington as if the electorate hasn’t noticed that you’ve been in charge of it for nearly three years.

    But above all: Find villains.

    President Obama first tried finding excuses, blaming America’s dismal condition on Japanese supply-chain interruptions, the Arab Spring, European debt and various acts of God.

    Didn’t work. Sounds plaintive, defensive. Lacks fight, which is what Obama’s base lusts for above all."

    When the Shitters throw one of those burning malacalaohalatacki cocktails into Mel's Diner, then the place burns down, let's see how O'Bozo comes up with a way to Blame Romney. Im sure Gay-Thighs Matthews and 350 pounds of Fat Ed Schultz will blame Romney and Sarah Palin!

    I know you are hoping this is true. but, I am going to educate you a bit here.

    Obama will never go near them if he remains true to his roots as a community organizer as he learned the ropes, if they stay in their present sate.

    if he sends his folks out ala the unions to try and change them, this will tip his hand, so though we would love to harness the energy, hes stuck.

    why?

    Because his own mentor by proxy, Alinsky, says so.

    the danger he faces if they stay as is, is the one that destroyed Humprey. Alinsky saw that and advised any and all such organizations to get haircuts, clean clothes and a veneer of respectability, almost in those exact words. The very things despite what the msm's best efforts, it wishes to push as truth.

    When mr and Msr America turned on the TV and saw the 68 fiasco, the silent majority was born, Alinsky knew the danger of that type of protestation and hyperbole. He advised very strongly against it.

    It's a HUGE gamble for obama. The republicans intend to tie the OWS crowd with the Nazi and Communist contingent around the necks of the democrats. So far, the ones who object to OWS the most are those who live or work in smelling distance. If they start burning and breaking, it will be really hard for the democrats to escape their albatross.
