The Democratic Party has officially gone 'all in' with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Executive Director Robby Mook just sent an e-mail to supporters urging them to sign a DCCC petition to "help us reach 100,000 strong standing with #OccupyWallStreet protestors."

Some high profile Democrats are expressing support for the Occupy Wall Street protest and members of the mainstream media have been quick to compare it to the tea party movement. But when Republican members of Congress adopted the tea party cause, they were rewarded on the campaign trail and at the ballot box.

Forget about whoever ends up winning the GOP nomination next year, Candidate Barack Obama has evidently decided that his 2012 opponent will be President Barack Obama.

First, President Barack Obama tried to characterize his political opposition as people more concerned with politics than country. Neither a new strategy nor one that hasn't worked before for other desperate candidates, but then he made the mistake of believing his own lies. The president's speech on Thursday night was tailored to bait the kind of politicians he claimed House Republicans are. But since they're not, Mr. Obama is left having to actually participate in solving the country's problems instead of engaging in the kind of negative political campaigning he prefers.
