That’s odd, I don’t recall talking about which cop car to take a dump on and wondering how many days has it been since the last time I showered.
(The Hill) — The Occupy Wall Street protests represent frustrations Americans across the country have with the economy, senior Obama administration adviser David Plouffe said Tuesday.
“The protests you’re seeing are the same conversations people are having in living rooms and kitchens all across America,” Plouffe said on ABC’s Good Morning America. “People are very frustrated by an economy that does not reward hard work and responsibility, where Wall Street and Main Street don’t seem to play by the same set of rules.”
As the anti-corporate protests in New York move into its fourth week, Republicans and Democrats have begun to weigh in. On Monday, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) said the protests were brought about by people looking for “scapegoats to attack.” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) called the protests “a mob” trying to pit “Americans against Americans.”
Meanwhile Democrats seem to be embracing the protests. On Monday the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sent out an email asking voters to sign a petition in support of the protests. The email also took a jab at Cantor’s remarks.
