No wonder Herman Cain is gathering a lot of support from conservatives and others.
From the L.A. Times: Republican presidential contender Herman Cain amplified his criticism Sunday of the growing Occupy Wall Street movement, calling the protesters “jealous’ Americans who "play the victim card” and want to “take somebody else’s” Cadillac.
Cain’s remarks, on CBS’ "Face the Nation," came amidst an escalating war of words between Republicans and Democrats over the merits of the movement, which has spread from New York to other cities across the nation, including Washington and Los Angeles.
GOP politicians in recent days have stepped up their criticism of the protesters, with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) calling them "mobs" who have pitted “Americans against Americans.”
But Cain, surging in popularity among many conservatives, seems to have had among the most virulent responses to the protests.
On CBS, Cain suggested that the rallies had been organized by labor unions to serve as a “distraction so that many people won’t focus on the failed policies of the Obama administration.”
The banking and financial services industries aren’t responsible for those policies, Cain said. “To protest Wall Street and the bankers is basically saying you’re anti-capitalism,” he said.
Most of the protesters are either seeking attention, spoiled, are anarchists, are Obama flunkies or have no clue what they are talking about. Some of these fools think they are in the same league as the protesters in Egypt and Libya but in reality
And Cain is right, many of the hard core protesters are anti-capitalists. Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez and Karl Marx are these thug protesters heroes.
But for the most part, these protests have been epic failures. They don't have much support and the numbers of protesters is just pathetic. Hell, even Sarah Palin can get more people to listen to her than these protesters. That's pretty pathetic.
Up until recently, I had some doubts on Herman Cain being elected, but he is standing out more and more as the one to beat in 2012. And if Obama goes up against Cain in November 2012, Cain wins by a huge landslide.
Keep on going Herman Cain. You are not a Mitt Romney not a Rick Perry and thank goodness for that.
