Occupy Wall Street Gets Two Shocking Endorsements

Occupy Wall Street is at the stage where major names are starting to throw their support behind the movement (even as some politicians feel the need to denounce it).

Here’s two “endorsements” from unexpected places:

— Bernanke (really!) said during his testimony yesterday that he can’t blame the protesters. Think Progress has the quote: “BERNANKE: I would just say 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. And at some level, I can’t blame them. Certainly, 9 percent unemployment and very slow growth is not a good situation.”

— And then a new poll from Rasmussen finds that net favorability among the American public is actually positive! 33% have a favorable opinion and 27% have an unfavorable opinion. Pretty stunning for a group that’s so easy to dismiss as “fringy.
