You want to know why we're starting to see Awesome Obama again? Thank the Occupy Movement.

This is why I've been going out there week after week, day after day, why I sat on a sidewalk and got arrested and spent a day in jail.

Because a big grassroots movement like the Occupy movement works.

A few months ago, all anyone was talking about in DC was "Cut the deficit! Cut Medicare! Cut Social Security! SUPERCOMMITTEE SLASH!!!"

Now that we've been making noise, jobs are on the table again. Taxing the wealthy is actually talked about by DC politicians.

And President Obama is sounding a lot more like the guy we were all enthusiastically supporting back in 2008.

Certainly we've got a long way to go. The reason that politicians are starting to change their tune is the same reason they're sending out the Imperial Stormtroopers to crack skulls - they're afraid of losing power.

If you want to know how to make real, positive, lasting change, just take a look around right now.

LOL All Obama has to do to be *awesome* to the far left is to talk smooth (using his teleprompter) and be rude to conservatives. He gets extra points when he blames conservatives for the disastrous results of HIS policies. Which he's doing not because he's campaigning. He needs the far lefts votes to win, and he knows that he doesn't need any substance or any results as long as he talks smooth and is rude to conservatives. They'll vote for him.

that we supposedly could never dare to hope for during a non-election year because they are just too fringe and left-wing and out of the mainstream...

are suddenly EXACTLY what he needs to say to appeal to the electorate during an election year.
snicker. The far left thinks that they are "the electorate", meaning that they are in the "majority".

The only thing awesome about Obama is his immunity from criticism in the press, and even that is a gift from the press rather than a virtue or attribute of his own doing.
