Obama’s Green Energy Scam

 

Americans For Prosperity introduces themselves as “an organization of grassroots leaders who engage citizens in the name of limited government and free markets on the local, state, and federal levels.” For some reason, the Occupy Wall Street movement hates them enough to have physically attacked their recent “Defending the American Dream” summit in Washington, D.C.  Perhaps it’s hasty to ascribe this violence to “hatred,” since the Occupy movement has proven more than willing to physically attack itself.

Perhaps the Occupiers should try listening to AFP instead of shoving elderly summit attendees down stairwells, because they’ve got the same critique of well-connected special interests twisting the law to enrich themselves at the expense of the little guy.  Just take a look at the TV ad they recently put together on that very subject:

How do you like those apples, Occupiers?  Rich guys arranging for billions of our tax dollars to flow into their pockets, and we get nothing but broken promises and empty factories filled with singing robots!  And you can’t even get answers from the bought men and deluded ideologues responsible for this disaster with a subpoena!  Why haven’t we seen a drum circle on George Kaiser’s front lawn yet?
