“Occupy Wall Street is the new Tea Party man …. get used to it. And yes, they share with the Tea Party that same lack of leadership and focus. One difference — they’re not ginned up by Dick Armey, Glenn Beck and Fox News. They’re the real deal. And you oughta be damn glad they’re making Wall Street fat cats a wee bit uncomfortable.” – Rutherford Lawson

Ahhhh, no.

Frankly, I’m use to Rutherford saying stupid things. I’ve only known him since Obama came to office and since that time, the litany of moronic commentary in defense of the pResident and liberalism in general has been epic. It has been so bad, in Fact, that Rutherford has really stopped trying to defend Obama altogether, which is what made this comment so interesting- this is the first sign of life coming from him in months.

Of course, it is understandable why. Rutherford believes that Obama has been a failure because he didn’t go left enough, ignoring the resounding collapse of the multiple of leftist policies enacted by the Socialist-in-Chief. Here, Rutherford thinks he sees the antidote, the cure, the something that can be the counter to the Tea Party. Well, I’m sorry to disappoint you Rutherford, but no, this is not the counter.

First off, the Tea Party promotes a return to our Founding Documents. It is the embracing of our ideals and a return to the premise that made this nation great. As the video clearly shows, the hippies on Wall Street are talking about destroying everything and coming up with something new, though they admit that they have no solutions, nor are they really interested in solutions. They are anarchists.

Secondly, we regularly vote with our ballots, but more often, we vote with our wallets. If these folks are so opposed to Wall Street, then take your money out. And please, don’t try to tell me these folks don’t have money in the street, the o0nly reason the Wall Street movement is gaining numbers right now is because the Unions are starting to show. Unions…hmmmmm…they wouldn’t happen to have a dollar or two in the street…

Which brings us to the unions. The incestuous relationship between this Administration and unions is well documented. In Wisconsin alone, 75% to 80% of the Federal Stimulus went to Public Employee unions. Like the Crysler and GM bailouts, which violated sum 100 years of bankruptcy law, the Administration didn’t let a crisis go to waste and used it to enrich and empower their allies, the unions.

So, where does the Administration stand on this Wall Street thing? Well, you can rest assured, they are in the same boat as ole Rutherford. Desperate for a distraction and more importantly, desperate for something to reinvigorate a base that has lost hope in their change. The Administration has made the political calculus that they will live or die on the class warfare meme. They see this as something of an affirmation of that, which is a faulty read. These are professional protestors.

Well, I bring you Occupy Wall Street:

There is no comparison between OWS and the Tea Party movement. Attempts to do so are desperate and intellectually dishonest. In a word: liberal.
