In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, GOP Presidential candidate Herman Cain had harsh words for the “Occupy Wall Street” movement and the people who blame Wall Street for their financial situations.
The Atlanta-based Cain also claimed that the “Occupy Wall Street” protests are possibly a planned distraction to make people forget about President Obama‘s role in handling the economy.
Talking Points Memo reports:
Cain went on to blame the unemployed for their woes, saying, “if you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself!”:
CAIN: 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 someone’s fault if they succeeded, it is someone’s fault if they failed.
Do you think his criticism is fair?
