“The Administration Has Never Supported “Occupy”, Winston”

John Nolte notes that  the media is frantically backing and filling and trying to remove all record that the Obama administration ever supported the “Occupy” movement:

Two months ago, the White House, Democrats, and the MSM were all sure that the #OccupyWallStreet movement would save them in 2012. With thousands of astro-turfed morons in the streets raging against Wall Street, Obama’s allies hoped to use said morons to create a silver lining in the economic cloud he himself created.

Obama’s goal was pretty simple; create (indirectly, through the unions that’ve been paying the freight for these “protests” all along) a sense that there was a mass movement protesting against the anonymous forces that were keeping the little guy down (but not, of course, the Obama administraiton, which had uncontested control of Congress for two years).

The hope was that by repeating this message incessantly, enough voters could be convinced that Wall Street, and by extension, evil Republicans, were to blame for our chronic unemployment, record deficits, and stillborn economic growth. President Obama who?

 And Obama jumped on the “movement”- his movement – from the beginning:

Now, of course, “Occupy” is rapidly becoming about as popular as Nickelback with voters.  And the AP is dutifully doing damage control for the President they desperately want to keep in office:

And it looks as thought the Associated Press has decided to start the memory-holing with the following:

“Democrats See Minefield in Occupy Protests

NEW YORK (AP) — The Republican Party and the tea party seemed to be a natural political pairing. But what may have seemed like another politically beneficial alliance — Democrats and Occupy Wall Street — hasn’t happened.”

Insert record scratch here.

Sorry AP, but the only reason Democrats see a minefield is because they’re standing in it.

Nolte helpfully exhumes some history that the Dems would rather have disappear – stories of Dems jumping on the Occupy bandwagon:

House Democrats. And look, the story about House Democrats endorsing Occupy is an AP story!

Top Democrats.

Nancy Pelosi.

A President named Obama, who said of Occupy, “We are on their side.”

…The SEIU.

The association between the Democrats and the “nazi-endorsed rat-infested rape camps” needs to pop up again next October.

  1. “Well, now Democrats like Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi are way out on a limb and have been caught in bed encouraging, endorsing, and attempting to legitimize a wildly unpopular movement most voters now find repulsive.”

    ObamaCare – They own it and they know it!
    Fast and Furious – They own it and they know it!
    Solyndra – They own it and they know it!
    OWS – They own it and they know it!

    One can only hope that come election time voters remember how abhorrent, hideous, and criminal these bums really are.

    In February 2009, Obama appointee and tax cheat Timothy Geithner announced plans to disburse the remaining 350 billion in the TARP fund without consulting congress.

  3. There are still a bunch of useful idiots in the media riding on the bandwagon, drinking as much kool aid as they can. Case in point, a breathless reporter last night interviewing a self-righteous survivor of the infamous pepper spray massacre at UC Davis, looking less stressed than if he’d pulled an all nighter before finals–except we all know Obamaville residents don’t study. Yes, I saw his cherubic face amongst the others in the video being looped endlessly on the CBS Evening News. Apparently the UC Davis PD needs to increase the capsaicin concentration in their pepper spray. Just kidding. I just recall rioters at the 1968 Dem convention getting thwacked pretty hard by the Chicago cops and not looking good at all the next day. We seem to have a new kind of demonstration these days: call it protest-lite for lack of a better term.
    Powerline has another wet-your-pants funny link to a WaPo story about a march from OWS to DC. Read it here: http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2011/11/occupyfail-a-profile-in-bad-choices.php

  4. Good luck to Jay Carney trying to dance around this…

    WH press core reporter: Mr. Carney how do you explain Pres Obama’s quotes about him supporting OWS

    Carney: He never said ANYTHING like that

    WHPC: but we have it right here on video…

    Carney: You misunderstand, he meant he supported their ideas and not the movement itself…

    WHPC: But one of their “ideas” was to abolish capitalism…

    Carney: Who are you going to believe, Obama, or your lying eyes and ears?

    I swear George Orwell is probably laughing hysterically somewhere. 1984 almost seems like an improvement from where we are now…
