Obama has moved the G-8 out of Chicago to Camp David, officially in order "to facilitate a free-flowing discussion" among the different members. Could it have anything to do with the Occupy protests that were planned? Absolutely. Did Obama just legitimized and emboldened the protestors? Glenn reacted on radio this morning.
The Blaze reports that Chicago police estimated 2,000 to 10,000 Occupy demonstrators were planning to protest the G-8 summit, which would explain the sudden and unusual change.
"Now that's sending quite a message," Glenn said. "That to keep world leaders safe in America this summer, he's got to move them to a private compound and out of a major city."
"Does that instill confidence in America? What does this say to our stability?" Glenn wondered.
"You think he'd want to introduce them to Occupy Wall Street," Glenn joked before saying, "He has just empowered them. He has given them a victory."
