    Because they spent the last 2 years defending a movement (Tea Party) for their frustrations with big government, and now they can't help but be hypocritical when criticizing this movement's frustrations. Republicans are fucked, big time.

    Have you seen all the baiting topics started today by SB and co? It's really pretty amusing.

    For the same reason that roaches feel threatened by a can of Raid.

    It certainly is amusing the number of posts here on RJ attempting to discount the message of the Occupy movement. Even GOP Presidential candidates are trying to redirect the anger of the movement from the Republican party to the WH. Nice try!

    Because I don't want to go to the guillotine after a group of rioters "conclude" that I'm "guilty" of something.

    I'm not voting for anyone in the current GOP field, but I'm gonna have to half-agree with them there: the anger should be directed at Wall Street AND at the White House AND and at Congress. They're all economic criminals.

    OWS is not an honest movement if it's just an Obama protection racket. And we shall soon find out.

    REALLY? are you kidding me with this? Just because they aren't holding up signs calling Obama a Muslim terrorist or him dressed up as a witch doctor (or whatever other racist imagery you can find at a tea party event), this is somehow an Obama protection racket?

    REALLY? Cmon, we all know you are above that bullshit.

    A person said the Republicans should not be trying to redirect the OWS anger at the White House. That is not true as the second Clinton administration, all eight years of Bush, and the Obama White House have all been complifict in Wall Street's shenanigans. This is evident to all Americans except those who are involved in Obama protection rackets and GOP protection rackets.

    Obamacrats want to lay all the blame at the feet of corporations while ignoring their hero's rank sellouts to coporate lobbyists. Meanwhile, Rethuglicans want to protect the super rich while blaming it all on Obama.

    They both wrong, because all of the above are guilty. And writing in ALL CAPS and hyperventilating about terrorists and unicorns and witches is not going to change that.

    Whatever else can be said about the Tea Party, they have made it perfectly clear that they don't care for the GOP's corporate technocrats (like Romney), and they are constantly at odds with the GOP establishment because of it.

    It remains to be seen if OWS is that intellectually honest. If they are not willing to fight the Obamacratic establishment, then they are part of the problem, sorry. But we will find out.

    I don't really see it as a threat as I do just another group speaking out and making their voices heard -- good for them!

    Um..have you or haven't you been to an event? Because I get the feeling you haven't. You can't trust the media on this type of stuff, you have to see with your own eyes.

    If you try to compare them equally, if that it is possible.

    The Tea Party moved the republicans to the right and a more liberatarian view.
    It effected elections and has a voice now.

    As for the OWS movement the jury is out. There is no clear message. But if it is just to be ANTI-GOP than it just a Democratic Party functionary and a nonstarter for me.
    They hopefully will challenge Democratic members who are fully plugged in with wall street.

    One moral notion that i think is compatible is that a individual is seen to be "too big to fail" but Bank of A is not too big to fail.

    Tax money bailed out the banks , and we are all surprised they tightened lending.

    What difference does it make?

    My point remains the same whether I've been to an event or not: OWS must be willing to stand up against the entire political establishment. There are too many on both sides of the aisle that are far too cozy with corporate lobbyists -- including the President's economic team. If OWS only wants to call those on the right out, then they will show they are are not serious but are merely partisan hacks. As the movement refines itself and clarifies its goals, we will find out whether it is serious about change or merely an Obama protection racket. The verdict is still out.

    Me going or not going to an event is not going to alter that point.

    The question is ridiculous on its face and extremely pointed at BEST. As a GOP'er, and one whom continues to work w/in the system and my party for change, I not only pity them but the posters who place Patently False signs in attempt to discredit the tea party... Good thing... they, these activists will not vote and winters chill will send them and their parents credits cards back home.

    the more important question is why have the extreme left gotten so desperate to cling to false hope of any savior person or group????

    answer is simple. Obama has failed and will be a one termer.
