Obama mischaracterizes Occupy Wall Street

Barack Obama, is a lame attempt to indicate sympathy with the Occupy Wall Street movement, said today:
So, yes, I think people are frustrated, and the protestors are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our [sic] financial system works.
It is true that there is a component of OWS, the Ron Paul component, who carry signs saying "Abolish the Fed" or "Fire Geithner" and probably do think that the problem is "how our financial system works." But the vast majority of OWS protesters, are concerned with "how our entire system works" - the financial system, the political system, and the economic system. A system which is controlled by, and run for the benefit of, the "1%". It's true that not all of those people would agree that the solution is a complete replacement of that system with socialism and real democracy. But almost all of them think that the solutions go far beyond reforming the way the financial system works.
