'Occupy Wall Street': Obama Needs to Tone Down the Rhetoric, Exercise More 'Civility'

The President's disdain for the Tea Party movement is well-known, as is Joe Biden's infamous quote in which he refers to Tea Party Republicans as "terrorists".

However, there's a new movement upon the horizon that is certain to capture the President's heart, for ultimately, this new movement is being fueled in large part by the President's anti-Wall Street rhetoric.

The movement is targeting "Wall Street" and "U.S. capitalism". They're calling for a "Day of Rage" to be held throughout the US on September 17. Their plan is to "occupy Wall Street" by setting up tents in Downtown Manhattan, near Wall Street and conducting large demonstrations.

A recent quote from Warren Buffet, criticizing the Bush tax-cuts, is posted on their website. It is the same quote that President Obama has been dishing out to Town Hall audiences on his current Midwest Bus Tour.

On the movement's website, they cite the London Riots and various Left-Wing demonstrations in Europe as their guiding light, and proclaim:

"Let the Days of Rage begin. On September 17, 2011, Wall Street belongs to us. Occupy Wall Street."

Good Grief.

Nevertheless, all of this leads me to believe one thing: The President needs to engage in a bit of introspection. For contrary to his claims, it is not the Tea Party nor the political discourse emanating from the Right that is imperiling this country, but rather it is the incivility and combative nature of the President's political discourse that is doing this country harm and bringing about complete anarchy in America.

Hence, I am begging you Mr. President to please tone down the rhetoric. For ultimately, more civility on your part will help to ensure that this nation does not fall prey to the very same anarchists who are currently wreaking havoc in London and in other parts of the world.

Of course, there's a distinct possibility that you're actually seeking a little bit of anarchy to help advance your Left-Wing agenda. If that's the case, feel free to ignore my plea....
