Mitt Romney appeared to be softening to the Occupy Wall Street protests on Monday, taking a more sympathetic tone as he remarked on the movement, which he had called dangerous just a week before.
I look at whats happening on Wall Street and my view is, boy, I understand how those people feel, he said at a town hall event in Hopkinton, N.H. Because with median income down 10% ... with chronic unemployment, long-term unemployment worse even than the Great Depression, the people in this country are upset. And I understand middle Americans saying, Wait a second, whats going on? This wasnt the deal. How can this be?
Gone was the rhetoric of last week, when he suggested the protesters were engaged in class warfare.
As a matter of fact, I dont worry about the top 1%, Romney said in response to a question about how to close the wealth gap. I dont sit up nights worrying about do we need to help them. ... They are doing just fine by themselves.(continued)

MORE desperation! Setting himself up opposite of Cain. He knows who his competition is :-)
He’s just being Mitt.
OMG! Can you believe this flip-flopper? We need to defeat this guy.
Now he sides with the OWS pathetic low lifes?
Mitt Romney has no idea where Middle Americans are, nor what they think.
These kids are not Middle America. They are scum. Little rich kids with nothing better to do.
Socialists stirring them up.
Romney is a boil on the ass of America.
Will not vote for him.
Making a donation to Herman Cain TODAY!

Yah, from the guy who was a Corporate Raider who dismantled companies for high fees. He surely understands Wall Street, it gave him the $100,000,000 he’s “worth”.
This is a CONTRIVED In Organic movenment, an Artificial Grass roots movement. Dont you remember earlier in the year when media was hinting about massive protests in the fall.... this has been designed by the democrats. I wish ever conservative with a paint ball gun would should take care of it.
i’m not voting for romney.
According to the Drudge headline, Cain says he’s going after Romney tonight.
Romney’s heartless moment.
If the stooges standing next to this lying sack of $#!t don’t call him out on this baloney, they all deserve to be beaten by this hack. What possible strategy is there to be siding with anti Semitics and Communists while running for the GOP base voters?
Though Myth Romney would be a somewhat better president that Obaomao .... he is NO conservative and and MAJOR RINO.
Vote as if your life depended on it .... cause it does
What a freakin’ loser.
We’ah kin he git him ah huntin’ lysensse, haw?
He once had to let a butler go because of bad breath and his gardners were deported. Does that count?
The Wall Street protests are being run from DNC Headquarters, in order to try to shift blame from the Obama Administration.
I can vote for Cain.
I can vote for Perry.
If Romney is on the Republican ticket, I’m voting for the Constitution Party.
