Occupy Wall Street = Class Warfare?

"I think this is dangerous-this class warfare." Mitt Romney
Was Mitt speaking about the republican proposal to eliminate MediCare and replace it with an inadequate voucher system?  This "dangerous class warfare" was that in reference to cuts to Social Security, or cuts to Medicaid, Pell Grants, nutrition programs, heating oil subsidies, early childhood education, health care screenings, and unemployment compensation?  No, it was in response to the question: what do you think of the Occupy Wall Street Protests that began in New York city and have spread across the nation?  So, it's only class warfare when 99% of the population object to the policies of the 1%.  When even Ben Bernanke sees the problem and Mitt Romney remains obtusely ignorant we begin to understand why the Occupy Wall Street Movement is spreading across the Nation.

 Ben Bernanke the Federal Reserve Chairman:
"Very generally I think people are quite unhappy with the state of the economy and what’s happening. They blame, with some justification, the problems in the financial sector for getting us into this mess and they're dissatisfied with the policy response here in Washington," Bernanke told Congress' Joint Economic Committee. "On some level I can’t blame them," he said. "Like everyone else, I’m dissatisfied with what the economy is doing right now."
