Democrats try to co-opt Occupy Wall Street - by going back in time

Watch this advertisement for Al Gore's 2000 campaign in which Gore accuses Bush of planning to give away the budget surplus to the ONE PERCENT.  At the time, Michael Moore was explaining to people that Gore was the same as Bush and even if Ralph Nader were not running, Moore would not vote Democratic because he was too disgusted.


By the way, that video is from here: http://www.livingroomcandidate.org/commercials/1952
Also - this advert from LBJ in 1964 is interesting.

Here's a thought experiment. Imagine what America would look like if President Obama was now several years into a term following 8 years of President Gore.  The "both parties are the same"  folks who keep uring symbolic actions, lines in the sand, avoidance of ugly compromise - those folks have a lot to be ashamed of.
