President Obama Is Right

I’ve never understood what the protestors who commit mayhem at nearly every gathering of world leaders hope to accomplish via their chaos, incoherent messages and occasional violence.

Community Organizer-in-Chief President Obama has dared to say the same thing.

“I was always a big believer in – when I was doing organizing before I went to law school – that focusing on concrete, local, immediate issues that have an impact on people’s lives is what really makes a difference and that having protests about abstractions [such] as global capitalism or something, generally, is not really going to make much of a difference.”
