Occupation can lead to ownership, whether or not you want it.
The spread of the "Occupy Wall Street" movement was met with initial hesitation in both the Democratic and Republican parties. That might be an appropriate response to any protests that aim themselves squarely at the establishment, particularly those with goals that are diverse and diffuse as the current protesters' are.
But a consensus is emerging among Democrats that the "Occupy" movement is worth tapping into, even helping along and joining with in some instances.
"I support the message to the establishment," House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said on ABC's "This Week." "Change has to happen. We cannot continue in a way that does not -- that is not relevant to their lives. People are angry."

Considering that the “Occupy” movement is right out of the Marxist playbook - and many of the participants are spewing radical Marxist doctrine - I believe they are a perfect fit for the Democrat party...
I say, “Go for it!” And stop trying to convince Americans that TEA Party people agree with and support these filthy maggots.
Yeah, what’s with the democrats trying to “Seek To Own”?
These d-bag fecal/urine odored vermin are FUNDED by the democrats and their money men.
They are only angry because they want somebody else to pay off their student loans.
too late, The Communists were there first...
wait...what the difference?...goals are the same.
PICKET: Communists hijacking 'occupy wall street' movement?
Obama owns them. He incited them. He leads them. Damn Marxists/anarchists. America-hating, capitalism-hating idiots.
The real question is whether there’s anybody stupid enough to believe there was no behind the scenes democrat involvement in the Occupy movement. Apparently Nancy thinks so.
Fine. Let them have it. Looks like a swell resume enhancer in a tough reelection fight.
I am sure Ben Nelson will be delighted to be associated with this.
Sounds like a catchy tune, or a great way to catch Hepatitis.
I really want to believe that there is a large segment of the Democrat Party that have a dose of common sense in their tiny Reptilian brains, but I just can't see it.
“These d-bag fecal/urine odored vermin”
Literally and not just figuratively based on the odiousness of their views. I can’t believe it has come to that.
Yeah, I think Pelosi let a whole nanosecond pass before asking her god (Marx, Muhammad, whatever...) to bless them.
Well, this is their base, after all.
Please take “ownership” of these kooks.
Let’s wait and see when winter comes to New York and D.C., how many of them live on the streets and march in sub zero weather.
Occupy Wall Street is a ball and chain for Democrats. Let them have them. They don’t even have the first bloom naivete of the hippies, these guys aren’t going to impress boomers who were radicals, I was around a bunch of this in the San Francisco area.
