No job? Cain says ‘blame yourself’

Updated
Presidential candidate Herman Cain will join Lawrence on the show tomorrow night. It is something he said in a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal that’s catching our attention today.

When asked about the ongoing Occupy Wall Street protests, the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and rising GOP-star said, “I honestly don’t understand what they’re looking for.” He brushed off the widespread demonstrations as a staged display 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!” Cain said. “It is not a person’s fault because they succeeded, it is a person’s fault if they failed.”

Cain acknowledged the banks fueled part of economic crisis of 2008. He noted it’s 2011, suggesting to hold the banks accountable now is just an excuse.

The 19-day-old Occupy Wall Street movement continues to gain momentum with the Left, as Democratic politicians, progressive groups and unions are joining the cause.

Members of the Service Employees International Union, the Communications Workers’ union, the New York AFL-CIO and the United Federation of Teachers joined today’s big march on Wall Street.
