Cain: “If You Don’t Have a Job and You’re Not Rich, Blame Yourself!”

Watch Herman Cain continue to sell himself out in this interview with The Wall Street Journal earlier this month.
Regarding the Occupy Wall Street protesters, Cain says that he is unclear about what exactly they are protesting, alluding to the fact that people are upset about what they don’t have. He said definitively, “If you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself!”
Atta boy Herman! Give us the old “pull yourself up by your own bootstraps” speech!
Cain did agree with the interviewer that protesters received a raw deal from the banks during the financial collapse of 2008. Cain’s response to their anger, however, was, “It’s 2011, not 2008…” Oh ok. That solves a lot.
It’s amazing how disconnected some people can be from everyday concerns. Wow.
