There’s a reason GOP POTUS candidate Herman Cain is becoming more and more popular. Part of that reason is because he says exactly what’s on his mind.
And naturally, that’s pissing off toads like the Occupy Wall Street crowd and the union goons backing them.
The Tea Party favorite argued that the plight of the unemployed was their own fault.
“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,” the ex-Godfather’s Pizza CEO declared.
Cain acknowledged that the banking industry played a role in the 2008 economic meltdown, but argued they were no longer responsible. “They did have something to do with the crisis that we went into in 2008, but we’re not in 2008, we’re in 2011,” Cain said. “…These demonstrations, I honestly don’t understand what they’re looking for. To me, they come across more as anti-capitalism.”
I wouldn’t agree that every unemployed person has only themselves to blame for being unemployed, but I would agree that those who spend their time marching on Wall Street have themselves to blame.
Stop marching, stop railing against the eeeeevil rich, and start looking for another job – because no one is going to come to your home and offer you one.
