Dems suddenly see Occupy protesters as a liability

Nancy Pelosi, who was among many Democrats who knee-jerkily supported the left-wing, hippie-reminiscent Occupy Wall Street protesters, now apparently wants to weaken the Democratic Party-Occupy Wall Street nexus.. In a fundraising mailing recently, she couldn’t even bring herself to use the name:

If you need further proof that Congressional Republicans are putting big Wall Street banks before middle class families, look no further than an explosive memo prepared by former John Boehner staffers-turned-banking lobbyists.

This just-leaked memo details an $850,000 “message war” plan to attack and discredit grassroots citizen movements working to hold special interests accountable

I wonder if North Carolina’s Democratic Secretary of State Elaine Marshall and Democratic U.S. Rep. Brad Miller are also rethinking their knee-jerk decisions to jump on the smelly Occupy bandwagon back in October.
