If the Occupy Wall Street protesters truly believed in the things that they are proclaiming, then they would be calling for the immediate resignation of Barack Obama and his entire cabinet. The truth is that the Obama administration is responsible for most of the things that Occupy Wall Street is supposedly complaining about. If the Occupy Wall Street protesters were intellectually honest, we would see a flood of anti-Obama signs during these demonstrations. But instead we have barely heard a peep of criticism for Obama. In fact, the vast majority of the protesters seem very excited about sending Obama back to the White House in 2012. As will be clearly demonstrated in the rest of this article, this makes the Occupy Wall Street protesters tremendous hypocrites. If Occupy Wall Street wants to have any credibility whatsoever, it needs to call for Barack Obama to resign. Either Occupy Wall Street protesters will call for Barack Obama to be held accountable for his actions, or they are just a bunch of sheep. They cannot preach to us about how principled they are and yet turn a blind eye to everything that Barack Obama has been doing for the past 3 years.
Below I am going to analyze many of the demands that Occupy Wall Street protesters have been making. A lot of them have been directly taken from the formal list of complaints posted on the "official" organizing website of Occupy Wall Street.
As you will see, there are a whole lot of reasons why there "protesters" should be very angry with Barack Obama.
But we all know that nearly all of them will show up to vote for Obama once again in 2012.
Just like so many "true conservatives" apologized for George W. Bush for all those years, now we are seeing those on the left apologize for Barack Obama.
It is truly sickening.
For a lesson in economics and to be able to formulate a cogent argument, get past any indignation over the "hypocrite" label and read the rest of this article at :
