Mike Bloomberg: Occupy Wall Street Isn't So Bad!

Mayor Bloomberg appeared on Morning Joe this morning and was unusually generous about Occupy Wall Street, though he "doesn't know what a movement is."

"It's a whole bunch of people that are just disinf-disaffected. They don't know what's wrong. They say, 'we don't know what we want but we want it now,' which I think is as good a way of saying it as anything. That it's not their job to solve the problems, it's the job of the government and the press and those of us that have some insight on how policies affect people."

Bit of a shift from when it was "fun and it's cathartic and it's entertaining to go and to blame people and look to the past, but it doesn't do anything for the future," eh Mike?

I don't notice the generosity of which you speak.  It seems that he has lost patience with them, justifiably so, and finally saying some truth-that there is something wrong with acting out when you don't know where you are going, what you are doing, have no idea of governance, yet you presume to dictate to others what is "right".
