Tim Pool describes Monday's protests by Occupy Wall Street on its one-year anniversary
What has happened since 2010 that means voters are prepared to re-elect a President whose economic record is so unpopular?
Occupy Wall Street is what happened.
Occupy is not the only reason why Romney's economic narrative has faltered. Indeed, in the larger electoral picture, it is only a small contribution to the GOP's poor campaign, but Occupy did something that observers have failed to appreciate in their rush to dismiss the movement as a fad or failure. The protesters changed the background, even as they failed to build a mass of participation, against which the contending economic visions of Obama and Romney are now framed.
