Huh? They don’t have a point, that’s one of their problems.

(The Hill) — Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum criticized the Occupy Wall Street movement but said that they do have a “legitimate point.”

“The original idea, which is that Wall Street is getting preferential treatment, bailouts and support, while the rest of the country is struggling, is a legitimate point,” Santorum said in Iowa Thursday according to CNN.

Santorum’s comments come roughly two months after the anti-Wall Street protests in New York began. Early Tuesday morning New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg ordered the city’s police to clear Zuccotti Park, where the protests have been centered, so it could be cleaned. Bloomberg said the park had become a safety and sanitation hazard.

In response, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) criticized the movement for lacking a real position.

“I mean, what is their position? They’re mad because people are making money, or are they mad that there’s no jobs in this country?,” King said.
