  •  Make up your minds. You want Obama or not? (8+ / 0-)

    Yesterday it's all about keeping President Obama and the Democratic Party from co-opting the movement.

    Now today there is this diary which seems to demand that he watch over the movement and protect it, perhaps speak out against violence   toward it but he better not embrace it!

    Until I see President Obama out with pepper spray and baton abusing protesters, I'll place the blame for violence where it belongs.

      without embracing the movement.

      who knew standing up for basic human rights was so controversial? this should be a no brainer. he either stands against injustice or he tolerates it. which side do you want him to be on?
