OWS Doesn’t Like Obama

If the Democratic Party intended to co-opt the Occupy Wall Street crowd to pad the outcome of the upcoming Presidential election, as some pundits suggest, the OWS turnout at the Democratic National Convention appears to show that the party has failed.

In calling out President Barack Obama for lies and failed promises regarding “hope” and “change,” Occupy protestors appear to be taking on the Democrats with regard to everything from crony capitalism to veterans’ affairs.

Earlier this week an OWS group protesting the Charlotte, N.C., convention turned out in force to demand that the President (of the “most transparent administration in history”) release Pfc. Bradley Manning, the soldier accused of providing classified information about dishonorable military behavior to WikiLeaks.

Unfortunately for the protestors, the DNC organizers set up the convention with an abundance of heavily militarized police and security checkpoints in order to keep the disaffected potential voters away from media in town for the convention.

“Four more years? No more years!” Occupy protesters have been heard chanting, even in some cases alongside anti-abortion and conservative activists in town to protest the event.
