By Paul B. Farrell, MarketWatch

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (MarketWatch) Forget politics. The 99%, the Occupy Wall Street movement, is not about politics. But politicians dont get it yet. The Dems sure dont. And while Bill OReilly says the movement is already dead, insider Frank Luntz thinks OWS is not only very alive, but getting dangerously bigger. In fact, hes very scared for his clients.

Warning: Will somebody please tell Luntz Occupy Wall Street is not about politics? This is class warfare, a revolution about economic inequality, not about political parties, political policies and political solutions and its not going away any time soon.

Luntz is a conservative pollster so hes making it all about politics. But hes missing the point, and misleading his clients. Luntz is author of some great books like Words That Matter and What Americans Really WantReally. And in my opinion, hes one of the Americas best behavioral economists.

But his pitch at last weeks Republican Governors Association meeting in Florida suggests he not only doesnt understand the 99%, hes misleading 29 state governors with Words That Will Backfire when the occupiers in the encampments see through Luntzs attempted manipulations. ..............(more)
