For a protest group that supposedly has no influence on the political narrative "conservatives" sure spend a lot of time bashing them and making up lies.

also, regarding His new campaign slogan:

The Obama campaign apparently didn't look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, "Forward" - a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.

Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name "Forward!" or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called "Forward (generic name of socialist publications)."

"The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications," the online encyclopedia explains.

The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

The Obama campaign released its new campaign slogan Monday in a 7-minute video. The title card has simply the word "Forward" with the "O" having the familiar Obama logo from 2008. It will be played at rallies this weekend that mark the Obama re-election campaign's official beginning.

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus

"I look forward to working closely with Roger as we continue to grow our Party and fight to return the Senate and the White House to the hands of steady, conservative leadership."

"I look forward to working with Glenn as we strengthen our Party and amass the necessary resources to make Barack Obama a one term president."

Sharon Day for RNC Co-Chair

"The opportunity was to capitalize on the attributes of a strong candidate by defining her, in a span of about 30 days, as the one best suited to move the RNC forward."

"This Tuesday, I think, is probably going to be a defining moment for our decision-making as to whether or not we move forward with the declaration of Mitt Romney being the presumptive nominee," Priebus said in an interview with National Journal.

Republicans need to move forward with Romney as our nominee

OMG, THE CALLS ARE COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE!!

What's interesting about that, is that it continues a pattern of Obama's. Back in '08 he borrowed a lot of language that progressives/leftists use. "Be the change you're looking for" among other things. Granted, once in office, he threw every leftist under the bus as quickly as he could, but he knows how to use the language that makes us lefties identify with him. Devious, duplicitous, dishonest, but if he wasn't capable of those things, he wouldn't be a very good politician.

It's a bit of stereotyping and caricaturing, I'll admit. But that's how they are viewed and perceived, at least publicly, by those invested in the status quo. If they are nothing but a bunch of stupid kids and aimless do-nothings, then why do they manage to get under the skin of those who have everything and believe that what they are doing is good and just?

Gads! Look at all the proles acting all uppity! Bah and poppyock! Don't they know that God made them to be ruled by us in the upper Elite? Why, we can't everyone out there wanting to read or not die off from the influenza. We would be up to our ears in squealing babies all wanting to be fed and clothed. It would be chaos I say.

Best to make sure the rabble do not get too randy, or else they may BLAST IT JEEVES WHERE ARE YOU WITH MY SCOTCH???!....ahem, or else they may want to have the same things as us.

Communists have always known that hot chicks with guns makes everything cooler.

Biggest problem with Enemy At The Gate, they didn't make it about Lyudmila Pavlichenko.

The vandalism yesterday in San Francisco and the attempted bridge bombing today just shows you how far much the OWS movement has fallen.

I think you are overstating the impact they are having. Sure, FoxNews and the NY Post and right-wing radio will whine about them, but they'll focus on anything that they perceive will make the left look bad. Do you think the 'wealthy assholes' were shiatting their pants because of ACORN? No, but right wing news outlets still covered the hell out of ACORN.

More likely, the wealthy are looking down upon OWS and today's admittedly pathetic showing with amusement.
