Giuliani: “Obama Owns Occupy Wall Street”


giulianiFormer New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says responsibility for the Occupy Wall Street movement rests squarely on the shoulders of President Obama.

“This is a very dangerous movement, and it’s ironic it’s happening under a president who promised to unify us,” Giuliani said. “Barack Obama owns the Occupy Wall Street movement, it would not have happened but for his class warfare.”

The Occupy Wall Street protests broke out in cities all over the country shortly after president Obama called for tax hikes on the wealthiest Americans. Some of the protests have turned violent. In Oakland, California, more than 100 people were arrested and eight were seriously injured Thursday, with protesters leaving stores in flames, and streets littered with broken glass and debris. A week earlier a former Marine suffered a fractured skull in a confrontation with Oakland police.

Giuliani’s words Friday charged up the crowd at the Defending the American Dream Summit, sponsored by the conservative Americans for Prosperity Foundation.

The 2008 Republican presidential candidate also predicted the movement will eventually lead to the end of Obama’s presidency. “Barack Obama praised it, sympathizes with it,” he said. “As it gets worse and worse, I believe this will be the millstone around Barack Obama’s neck that will take his presidency down.”

  1. Obama owes us nothing on this issue. He is the president and must temper his speech. I do not know if he is amazed by this or if he is annoyed, but I actually think that he is not too keen on the fact that there is anarchy in our cities.

  2. “As it gets worse and worse, I believe this will be the millstone around Barack Obama’s neck that will take his presidency down.”


  3. I’m sorry, but the Republicans are also to blame for letting Wall St. outsource all it’s jobs to India, Singapore, Phillipines etc.
    Also, The Dept. of Labor has been allowing in hundreds of thousands of foreigners on H1B visas to take away the remaining jobs from Americans! There is no middle class to pay taxes, and the illegal immigrants whose kids are on Medicaid & go to public schools here paid by our taxes, are using up govt. money.

  4. in the 2008 primaries the NY Times lableled each of the dem and rep competitors for their prospective nomination. The NY times summed up one of the more than 10 candidates ” the biggest liar of them all”. That person was Rudolph Guilliani, because there is no one who lies as much as him.

    This article is no exception. Obama is both the foremost CAUSE of this protest movement which he “owns” because he has whipped up class warfare by siding with Wall Street…at the same time Obama is in the back pocket of Wall Street ( the tea party claim)… and Obama hasn’t thrown the Wall Street thieves in jail becasue Wall Street is in his back pocket ( Rush Limbaugh) ) and therefore Obama is ALL THINGS EVIL AT ALL TIMES.
