53. #OWS is not FOR him
he ignored and actually reversed his campaign promises, so the people went around him.

He or any of his cronies attempt to co-opt this movement they will be laughed out of town;

for HE, as much as most other politicians

is the problem!

Further: If he had governed --did his job-- the way he said he would, there would be absolutely no protests.
