Herman Cain Says "If You Don't Have A Job And You're Not Rich, Blame Yourself"
That damn Herman Cain. Does he ever stop? Apparently not as the GOP presidential candidate sat down with the Wall Street Journal to give his two cents on the ongoing Occupy Wall Street movement. His two cents are certain to have many people shaking their heads.
Unsurprisingly, Cain is totally against the movement that he says is fueled by “anti-Capitalism” as well as jealously of those that are successful in a dismal economic climate. Rather than look at the bailouts that too-big-to-fail banks received after playing a key role in housing foreclosures and then turned around to slap customers with inappropriate fees to access their own money as a likely reason why people are upset, Cain would rather place the blame squarely on the shoulders of the people.
“What do they make of it? What do they want?” Cain asked the interviewer. “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!”
Apparently Cain sees nothing wrong with banks being bailed out while the people were forced to deal with the terrible hand they were dealt. Rampant unemployment is not primarily the fault of the people as jobs are rapidly vanishing due to a number of factors — none of which people can control. Perhaps Cain should pull his head out of his ass and see what is really happening in this country. Saying that these demonstrations are staged so people can be distracted from the failures of the Obama Administration also undermines what American citizens are going through during this tumultuous time. Instead, Cain believes that the demonstrations are fueled by envious people who hate that people like Cain “made it.”
“When I was growing up, I was blessed to have parents that didn’t teach me to be jealous of anybody and didn’t teach me to be envious,” he continues. “It is not a person’s fault if they succeeded, it is a person’s fault if they failed.”
Hopefully, people see through this fog of bullsh*t and realize that Cain is a pawn in a scandalous game of bait and switch where the people are faulted for the failures of this country rather than the Bush Administration that played a massive role in where we are at today.
