White House Draws Closer To Occupy Wall Street, Says Obama Is Fighting For The Interests Of The 99%

In a call previewing Obama's upcoming bus tour through North Carolina and Virginia, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama "will continue to acknowledge the frustration that he himself shares," about Washington's laggard response to the financial crisis.
Earnest added that while on the trip, Obama will make it clear that he is fighting to make certain that the "interests of 99 percent of Americans are well represented" — the first time the White House has used the term to differentiate the vast majority of Americans from the wealthy.

Am I the only person in America that knows that the rich voted for Obama by a wide margin in 2008? It would be interesting for the media to point out occasionally that those making over $250,000.00 a year, voted solidly for Obama and the left. WM
