    In Las Vegas the students at UNLV are protesting because the corporations don't represent them.

    That's the level of stupidity.

    The irony is that most of these people will vote for Obama again in the next election. :lol:

    Obama voters don't get it. They voted for him hoping for change but they go change. Downward change and yes they will try it again because they are stupid. I loved the quote from the Harvard student. I wonder if he is liberal oh I forgot its Harvard. This movement thing is just to give the kids that are living on daddy's nickel something to do.

    That's probably true, but it's no more ironic than the fact that most of the people protesting on the left in 1935, and highly critical of FDR, voted for him in '36. The idea is to push our elected officials in the direction the people want them to go. Obama won't go there unless pushed (he's proven that to a revolting degree), but he also won't go there if he's out of office.

    Obama has a do-nothing/know-nothing Congress. If/when he gets reelected, he doesn't have to cater to the right anymore. His first three years was spent trying to be inclusive & where did that get him?

    Seems to me he has spent a great deal of that time battling his own Dems. His first two years in office he had a SUPERMAJORITY and could have gotten anything he wanted.

    Hell it took him 18 months to get his HC bill passed. Not because of the Reps. They had no power. He and Pelosi and Reid had to fight with thier own party.

    He's battling his Dems right now. Most of the Dems up for re-election aren't interested in advancing his "Faux Jobs Bill". They can see the writing on the wall even if Barry can't.

    As for catering to the right>. WOW I must have missed that.
