The Great Unwashed: Protests of RNC Fail to Generate Excitement

Those Commie drones in the streets ARE lepers. They are acting on orders from the Democrat Party, the union bosses, and George Soros. Remember, too, that OWS is joined at the hip with a known domestic terrorist group, Black Bloc, which has vowed to create violence in and around the area of the convention. And they aren't even American in their worldview. They HATE this country, just like their tinpot Messiah.
Day one of the Republican convention drew excitement from the group that was there to participate, but the rain and a general lack of interest and organization meant that the media-driven frenzy around counter-protesters fizzled into nothing.

The police were ready, however, and a fairly large contingent of Tampa's finest took to the streets, clearly prepared for a worst-case scenario.

A popular protest tactic is the act of lying down in the middle of the street. These protesters used it to, erm, great effect, I suppose. Security forces were unfazed.
