In just over a week, the Occupy Wall Street movement has gone from being lectured by writers at Mother Jones for not understanding messaging to comparisons to George Washington in a Central Pennsylvania newspaper!
- Robert J. Vickers, The Patriot-News — Wall Street protest moves rapidly from fringe to middle:
The protesters didn’t take their beef to the dysfunction that is Washington. Instead, they planted their flag of dissatisfaction in the heart of America’s financial district. It has spread to Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston and Los Angeles, and is coming to Harrisburg on Wednesday ... The upstarts who got Occupy Wall Street off the ground might not become storied legends, but their idea looks like it has legs, and with any luck, there’s a next generation George Washington poised to step in, articulate a moderated message, and put American economic equality squarely in the political middle.
