Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney — who has raised $2.3 million from the financial sector — is no fan of the “Occupy Wall Street” demonstration in lower Manhattan.

“I think it’s dangerous, this class warfare,” he said at a retirement community in Florida.

As corporations enjoy near record profits and Americans face staggering unemployment, the protesters pledged to occupy Wall Street in lower Manhattan until something was done about corporate greed and the influence of the wealthy on American politics.

They have been camped out in New York’s old Liberty Plaza, now called Zuccotti Park, since September 17.

Similar demonstrations have popped up in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Denver and elsewhere.
