Obama Praises Wall Street Protesters, Calls TEA Party Extreme

President Obama said Thursday that the Occupy Wall Street protests show a “broad-based frustration” among Americans about how the U.S. financial system works.

Speaking at an East Room news conference, Obama said he has monitored the movement, which has spread to dozens of cities nationwide.

“I think it expresses the frustrations the American people feel, that we had the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, huge collateral damage all throughout the country … and yet you’re still seeing some of the same folks who acted irresponsibly trying to fight efforts to crack down on the abusive practices that got us into this in the first place,” he said.

So, more than 750 people being arrested in a dozen cities nationwide is just fine with President Obama, because their movement “expresses the frustrations” felt by the American people due to the financial crisis.  When it comes to the Tea Party, however, with one arrest out of millions of Americans who have gathered at hundreds of events, the president dismisses the movement as “extreme”, motivated by race, and bent on espousing views which are rejected by “a vast majority of Americans.”

This president is extremely out of touch, and I believe that more and more Americans are starting to realize it.  Still, it needs to be up to Republicans–especially the presidential candidates, with a platform that reaches Americans who still do not see new media–to draw these same distinctions.

    Sorry obama, but we do not care at all about your race. You use that escuse to cover your ineptitude while you wage a campaign for another term.
    We do not want you. You are a waste and a danger to this country and the American lifestyle. You want to impress the rest of us? Get rid of your czars. Get rid of your supercommittee. Remove that medical law that forces us to pay for what you want. Start deporting illegal aliens. Protect our borders. Ignore the muslims and support Israel.
    Show us that you really are a Christian. While you are at it, take down soros, ayers, and your rev. wright. Stop supporting terrist groups like the SEIU and CAIR.
    We are judging you by your actions, not your promises or your ability to speak. So far, you fail completely.
