Herman Cain to Wall Street Protesters: Get a Job!

by at . Comments

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has been surging in polls recently. But is blatantly chastising Wall Street protesters and telling them to blame themselves for their fiscal woes political suicide - or part of what makes him appealing?

The Georgia businessman's blunt message to the demonstrators on Wall Street: Cut out the "class warfare" and "blame yourself" for being poor and jobless.

Cain told the Wall Street Journal that demonstrators come across as "anti-capitalism" and by staging these elaborate protests, what the people are doing is merely distracting the country from President Obama's "failed policies."

"Don't blame Wall Street, don't blame the big banks, if you don't have a job and you're not rich, then blame yourself!" said the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza.

"It is not a person's fault because they succeeded, it is a person's fault if they failed ... I don't understand these demonstrations and what they're looking for."

The GOP star of the moment, the Hermanator isn't backing down from his straight taking ways. He's made headlines for calling out Morgan Freeman and for his recent comments about Rick Perry's hunting camp n-word controversy.

What do you think of Cain?


Mega-rich dudes like him are part of the problem. The protests are a reflection of people not being able to make it even working 40+ hours a week! Giant corporations are part of the problem, they send jobs overseas-from manufacturing in China to call centers in India, the CEOs are still being paid obscene amounts, yet the middle class keeps disappearing due to these greedy corporate heads slashing pay, benefits and laying off hundreds of thousands of employees (to send their jobs overseas, of course) I am so sick of the super wealthy blaming those who are trying to provide yet still struggle for themselves and their families. There is a special place in hell for greedy, cold-hearted, corporate evil people.


We're getting some interesting clues as to what a Cain Administration will - and won't - do. For starters, there won't be any effort to stimulate job growth because people would be to lazy to take any jobs that are created. And since Cain has told the protesters the trillion-dollar heist took place in 2008 and this is 2011 so get over it ... we now know the Statute of Limitations will be reduced to three years.
