The Democratic National Committee's Organizing for America arm -- the remnant of the 2008 Obama campaign -- is playing an active role in organizing protests against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's attempt to strip most public employees of collective bargaining rights.
OfA, as the campaign group is known, has been criticized at times for staying out of local issues like same-sex marriage, but it's riding to the aide of the public sector unions who hoping to persuade some Republican legislators to oppose Walker's plan. And while Obama may have his difference with teachers unions, OfA's engagement with the fight -- and Obama's own clear stance against Walker -- mean that he's remaining loyal to key Democratic Party allies at what is, for them, a very dangerous moment.
OfA Wisconsin's field efforts include filling buses and building turnout for the rallies this week in Madison, organizing 15 rapid response phone banks urging supporters to call their state legislators, and working on planning and producing rallies, a Democratic Party official in Washington said.

American protests are not brought on by Egypt protests.
For one Egypt didn't protest......they Rioted and revolted! BIG difference!
Americans are protesting because Americans are finally getting pissed off! One too many steps by corporations and government have been taken over that imaginary line we call rights!
Americans should be rioting and revolting for their rights!
Stop letting Corporations and government walk all over you, and taking steps over your line. Soon the BEAST will be well over the line and pushing you further and further into the grave!

Democrats leaving the states to avoid voting, teachers leaving children to protest pay increase?!
WTH! The Egyptians arent getting paid at all, at least these teachers have jobs. Grow up!
Could the protests in Egypt have sparked a world protest?
