She and the Dems embraced OWS when it was politically advantageous. Now OWS is losing popularity because of their own actions so Pelosi is distancing herself and the Dems.

The clip didn't show how Pelosi and the Dems are distancing themselves. Why do you say that they are? I think Pelosi was wrong in the clip when she said OWS was "focused." In my opinion, it has been a very scattered type protest movement, but I think one of it's basic foundations, that of "the elite vs. the rest of us," is going to be a prominent part of the Democratic campaign strategy if Obama has to face Ronmey in the presidential election.

That's not what i saw in the video. She's supporting the protesters and it will only get bigger. What's your beef with the protesters Perkins?

I find it hard to believe that Pelosi could be supporting the OWS protesters and be a democrat at the same time. I've always that the OWS protesters had a gripe against Obama. Pelosi sides with them, so does it seem logical that she would have a gripe against Obama, too?

I think Obama and Pelosi are two of the "elite". I don't believe in race baiting and class warfare being used for political campaign issues. We have serious problems.

What will get bigger? The number of rapes, robberies, muggings, vandalism, and propganda? The OWS threw a smoke bomb on the White House lawn yesterday. How can the Dems support that?



Speaking from an oppositional point of view, I hope the Dems and Obama do keep supporting the OWS movement. The Tea Party compared to the OWS is like comparing a Brand New Cadillac with a Yugo after being hit by a Mack Truck. I'll let everyone decide which is which.

A better question would be -- who isn't mentally ill?

[/quote]Sure, they are the elite, compared to me, but Romney is also one of the elite compared to me, and since Romney has more money than Obama or Pelosi, they can try to lump themselves with the rest of us in comparison to Romney. I plan on voting for Romney when he gets the nomination, but I do see him as having difficulty relating to those with less finances. I personally have difficulty relating to those who can buy anything they want whenever they want it. That being said, I wouldn't want someone such as myself, who has very little to show for my own financial decisions, to be making decisions that affect multitudes of other people. There is nothing wrong with a bit of "eliteness' in those making decisions, but there also has to be the ability to relate to others, and I don't think it is "class warfare" to question how well a leader can relate to the people he is leading.
