Those were encampments of the disgruntled unemployed during the Great Depression.
They were dubbed Hoovervilles after Herbert Hoover who was presiding in the Depression’s early days.
Again we have encampments of the disgruntled unemployed. And we have another president. Clearly, the name for the encampments are Obamavilles, not the unsightly OWS.
I spotted the term recently in a Wall Street Journal column by James Taranto.
Yes, they are of one mind, so let’s call the encampments what they are: Obamavilles.
Hoover was tossed out of the White House after one term. Let us pray Obama gets the same treatment. It’s gonna happen.
But in the meantime, let’s call the encampments Obamavilles. Spread it around. It will do him no good, and that ain’t bad.

(Note 2: Even left-wing Chris Matthews now sees the Great American Error plainly. Watch this brief video.)
