    They had the full support of the White House, Pelosi and the LMSM, they had tons of positive press coverage, but somewhere it all went terribly wrong.

    What happened?

    Did Bloomberg remind Obama how mush of the NYC Economy is dependent on "Wall Street"

    Did their Neo-Marxist rantings cause the media to stop covering them? (nah, that can't be it)

    Did their vicious anti-Semitic ranting cause the media to turn away?

    What happened?

    Where did it go off the tracks?

    Dems generally support all protests....Repubs generally despise all protests.

    A number of things, drugs, violence, the fact that the occupiers themselves set up classes within the group, and the most damaging, the unending demands for more free stuff. It's hard to take a movement seriously when the are mewling for free condoms.

    That, and shitting in the streets sort of turned everyone off.

    I didn't know it was Obama's to begin with. I thought it was about ending Banker Occupation of the Economy and Federal Subsidy to Wall Street via the Privately Owned Federal Reserve.

    I was all for it until it got co-opted by other movements like Marxism, and the Anti-Capitalists, Anarchists and so forth.

    Anyway why the low coverage of these patriotic people?

    They forgot what they were supposed to be doing once they got there.

    They are marching for health! As if good health can be given to them. A redistribution of health, where the healthy will have to give up some of their good health to the diseased.

    Only the liberal mind could come up with that one.
