Barack Obama Owes Occupy Protesters a Debt of Gratitude

Link to article

"In a deeper irony, most Occupiers deplore Obama. They occupied Wall Street to expose the true power behind Washington, including Obama. They 'stormed' his campaign HQ in Chicago in May and occupied Charlotte during his September nominating convention there. Many refused to vote in the “sham” election or backed purer candidates. No matter, they still got Obama there. For critics who had charged they had no programs to offer, it turns out they had one: Obama’s re-election. It’s a classic case of what Hegel called the cunning of history."
