Careful With That Axe, Willard

Have you been wondering how Republicans would respond to the rapidly growing Occupy Wall Street movement? Mitt Romney provides the answer:

Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney on Tuesday compared the current anti-Wall Street protests to “class warfare.”

“I think it’s dangerous, this class warfare,” Romney said to an audience of about fifty people in response to a question about the protests over such issues as high unemployment, home foreclosures and the 2008 corporate bailouts.

Of course — back to the old right-wing playbook. But it’s ringing a little hollow now, isn’t it? Things are starting to feel different out here.

Republicans may come to regret taking the wrong side in a real class war.
