A presidential campaign adviser says that Barack Obama can tap into the frustrations typified by the Occupy Wall Street movement better than any Republican rival in 2012.
Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs tells NBC's "Today" show Obama "is out there fighting for the middle class."
Gibbs says "we're seeing now a lot of anxiety and frustration" across the country because of income disparity.
Asked if this economic unrest will mostly likely benefit Obama in next year's election, Gibbs said Obama has a better record than the GOP in defending the middle class. Gibbs also said that "every one" of the Republican presidential candidates want to roll back Wall Street regulation.
He said the lack of sufficient rules to govern Wall Street is what "got us into this mess."
