Poll: Despite Occupier Hoopla, Majority Blames Washington, Not Wall Street

By Susan Duclos

Previously it was shown that Barack Obama deliberately made a calculated political choice to incite a major class war in America in an attempt to distract the general public from his failed policies which has led to 9.1 percent unemployment and a stalled economy.

His far left progressive lapdogs ran to fetch the bone he tossed and started the Occupy Wall Street movement which has been getting quite a bit of press but which has not garnered the support of the likely voting public who polling shows a majority of which understand that it is Washington and not Wall Street which is "primarily to blame for the financial crisis and the subsequent recession."

In the minds of likely voters, Washington, not Wall Street, is primarily to blame for the financial crisis and the subsequent recession.

That is the key finding of this week’s The Hill poll, which comes as the national Occupy Wall Street movement — a protest that objects to risky practices and excessive salaries at major banks, along with American income disparities in general — enters its second month.

The movement appears to have struck a chord with progressive voters, but it does not seem to represent the feelings of the wider public.

The Hill poll found that only one in three likely voters blames Wall Street for the country’s financial troubles, whereas more than half — 56 percent — blame Washington.

Moreover, when it comes to the political consequences of the protest, voters tend to believe that there are more perils than positives for Obama and the Democrats.

On October 7, 2011, I said "Note to liberal Democrats: Embrace them, encourage them, join them...... OWN them, please."

Barack Obama, Democratic political leaders, the Nazi Party and Socialist Party USA have all thrown their support to the Occupiers, which unlike the majority of the general public, blame Wall Street for all their problems.

The White House continued its embrace of the Occupy Wall Street protests on Sunday, using the strongest terms yet to identify President Barack Obama with the growing movement.

Obama created them, embraced them, he owns them now.

The voting public is smarter than progressives give them credit for and have not bought into the coordinated "message", despite the media's now proven complicity in helping craft that message rather than doing their job of just reporting.

Journolist 2.0: Occupy Wall Street Emails Show MSM, Dylan Ratigan, Working With Protesters To Craft Message

Big Journalism has learned that the Occupy Washington DC movement is working with well-known media members to craft its demands and messaging while these media members report on the movement. Someone has made the emails from the Occupy Wall Street email distro public and searchable. The names in the list are a veritable who’s who in media.

Journolist 2.0 includes well known names such as MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan, Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi who both are actively participating;


The full searchable Occupy DC list is available here. We’ve only begun to discover the full scope of MSM’s involvement and are still combing through the archives after the list was brought to our attention late last night.

As this continues to snowball into something bigger than Obama will have the ability to run from, I wonder how he is going to attempt to blame Bush for the Occupiers.

Someone should start a pool on how long it takes Barack Obama before he starts trying to distance himself from a class war he publicly incited.
