I expect to see some interesting foot work the next few weeks. The Right wing will never know what hit it!

1. No, Obama is not a community organizer any more.
He is a President. That is not to his detriment, but Presidents can/will/need to do things differently than a community organizer.

He and OWS are not allies. They are protesting his policies, and he can't afford to be seen as too close to them--especially (god forbid) some kind of violent incident breaks out somewhere.

3. No.
He became a community organizer after he graduated from Columbia and before he entered Harvard Law.

4. So it was a summer job between earning his bachelors...
...and attending grad school. That is what I was alluding to.

8. OWS is not asking Obama to stand with them and they don't want him
If anything they will put pressure on him and all other politicians to address the Wall Street issues that the 1% have created. They aren't from a political party.

That seems to be so hard for people to grasp. This isn't about politics. It's about having a broken country run by Plutocrats and their paid servants. It's about corruption so deep that no politician can be trusted. What politician will bite the hand that feeds it? None.

9. A community organizer tries to fight the good fight, but finds that his
platform is too small. He enters law school, then politics; works his way up through the State House to the Senate and then the Presidency in record time against very high odds. He spends two years showing the American people that the current system is broken. Spontaneous sit-ins begin in numerous American cities just as he puts pressure on Congress to raise the taxes on millionaires and spend money to put Americans to work.


And everyone except me thinks this is all a coincidence?

16. OMG. Giving the far right 2 more disastrous years of Bush policies
was part of the plan??!?!?!!??????

CLUE CALLING ON LINE 5!!! WE ALREADY KNEW THE REPUBLICAN POLICES WERE A DISASTER. THAT'S WHY WE VOTED THEM OUT. THE PRESIDENT'S CONTINUATION OF THEM COST HIM IN 2010 AND WILL COST HIM AGAIN!!

Sometimes this place in nuttier than fox nation.

17. This post is almost enough to drive me away from DU
So our LEADER is going to somehow co-opt the energy of millions of disparate Americans protesting, among other things, his policies?

20. He was sent here to find answers
sounds like Herman Cain is desperate, remember he said he has no proof but the
OWS movement is created by Obama.
