When Mitt Romney remarked at the Iowa State Fair that “corporations are people, too,” some on the left went into overdrive to depict Romney as an out-of-touch rich businessman. Now Herman Cain’s remarks on Occupy Wall Street in an interview with the Wall Street Journal are similarly being highlighted.
Asked what he thought of the protests, Cain said, “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!”
ThinkProgress put out a video with just Cain’s answers about Occupy Wall Street (the full interview can be watched here):
