    I think Romney probably wants to keep the focus away from questions of inequality, for obvious reasons. But if Obama wants to beat that drum, he'll have to deal with both the advantages and disadvantages. The advantages being that a lot of people have suffered from the bad economy, the disadvantage being that it ties him to an organization with a lot of problems.
    See, that's the thing though. Occupy Wallstreet doesn't own the market on the whole "equal treatment under the law" thing. Obama has not allied himself with OWS. There are plenty of Americans who already support Obama's general message of everybody pulling their weight that are not sympathetic to OWS. Any direct connection between Obama and OWS would be ridiculously tenuous, and open Romney up to criticisms regarding certain groups that he has a MUCH more solid connection to. I'm not saying Romney won't make the comparison, because the right loves the class warfare argument. It'll just end up hurting them a whole lot more than Obama.

    Obama can safely speak about the inequalities in this country without cozying up to OWS in the same way that the right cozied up to the Tea Party. He can both champion some of their ideals and criticize them at the same time.

    But he doesn't know how to stay on script.

    I bet those cops and their families do.

    I mean, it's not even like they were directly engaging them. They were trying to keep two groups of protestors from attacking each other.

    Ok, so a couple dozen people mad at a another couple dozen people are going to vote against a presidential candidate with no affiliation with either group? Sounds plausible.

    And I think the message (inequal wealth distribution) that OWS helped being to fore resonates with more people and their families than some face off with police.
