Obama: Wall Street Protesters Representative of ‘Broad Based Frustration’


According to Obama’s administration and his Democrat cohorts in Congress, the law-abiding, self-supporting, job-having, tax paying Tea Party consists of terrorists, racists and hostage takers. But the Wall Street protesters — those communists and socialists who are being arrested by the hundreds, shouting “kill the cops,” costing cities a fortune in overtime and generally stinking up the place — are merely frustrated, put upon members of society victimized by greed.

The One feels their pain:

The protestors demonstrating against Wall Street and the country’s financial system are expressing the widespread frustrations shared by the U.S. public, President Obama said today.

“I think people are frustrated,” Obama said at a White House news conference. “The protesters are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works.”

“I think it expresses the frustrations that the American people feel that we had the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, huge collateral damage all throughout the country, all across Main Street, and yet you’re still seeing some of the same folks who acted irresponsibly trying to fight efforts to crack down on abusive practices that got us into this problem in the first place,” the president said of the “Occupy Wall Street” protests that began in New York City Sept. 17.

Other Dems are loving it too. “God bless them” according to Nancy Pelosi, whose husband made his fortune as…. wait for it…. an investment banker.

Word is that, at today’s Wall Street protest, hundreds showed up and things almost got out of control, but police were able to disperse the protesters by firing job applications into the crowd.
