Herman Cain On Occupy Wall Street: 'If You Don't Have A Job And You're Not Rich, Blame Yourself' (VIDEO)




Businessman-turned-GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain sat down with the Wall Street Journal for a recent interview and gave an unsympathetic analysis of the ongoing Occupy Wall Street movement, suggesting it was staged and driven by "anti-capitalism."

Asked by the Journal's Alan Murray about his thoughts on the demonstrations, which initially began in New York City and have since spread around the country, Cain responded:

    "I don't have facts to back this up, but I happen to believe that these demonstrations are planned and orchestrated to distract from the failed policies of the Obama administration. Don't blame Wall Street, don't blame the big banks, if you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself! ... It is not a person's fault if they succeeded, it is a person's fault if they failed."

Cain went on to admit that the banks had something to do with the economic crisis of 2008, but pointed out that it was now 2011, seemingly downplaying any lasting effects of the practices of big banks and Wall Street.

Occupy Wall Street, a self-professed progressive movement, has broadened its efforts in the past week, putting concerns with too-big-to-fail banks, widening income inequality and rampant unemployment on center stage.

Herman Cain, some of us don't actually want to be rich. Some of us just want to be happy, without it causing collateral misery to millions of other people.

"Don't blame Wall Street, which has helped screw you out of your last dime so you can't pay your mortgage, blame yourself!"

Well, the problem with the lack of empathy Republicans have is that they never meet anyone who is poor. Except, of course, for their servants and the employees they run into at their country clubs.

Right let's see his @$$ try to make it in a system where for every $38 lent $1500 us owed back to the monopolistic FED and see how well he fares.

Also, no bailouts.  Let's see him try to pay back a mathematically impossible debt without taking on more debt.

He, Hannity and Limbaugh get their FED media grants while the rest of America lives under exploitation and then have the nerve to act like debt is our fault.   F**K them.

Looks like he's got the FOX news talking points memorized already...

Thank God only .8% of the population watches FOX News.  That's 0.008 of the the total 320 million US population, if anyone cares to do the math.
