If you're dissatisfied with the economy, or unemployed, Herman Cain thinks you should take a long, hard look in the mirror.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal posted Wednesday, the up-and-coming GOP 2012 contender and former CEO of Godfather's Pizza summed up his bewilderment about recent demonstrations on Wall Street.
"Don't blame Wall Street," Cain said. "Don't blame the big banks. If you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself.
The conservative radio talk show host described the protests as "planned and orchestrated to distract from the failed policies of the Obama administration, though he admitted he didn't "have the facts to back this up.""
Although it hasn't gotten much attention, he was actually chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank in the mid-1990s. That's the epitome of the Establishment and the opposite of the tea party.[/ex
From 1992 to 1996, Herman served as a director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City in the capacities of deputy chairman and then chairman of the Board.
"His views were pretty consistent with those of the Fed at the time. Alan Greenspan was, of course, chairman and Herman was in lock stop with the policies of the Fed." Jennings added that this was not atypical; he could not recall a single dissent from anyone during this three-year term.
So Cain's an insider posing as an outsider. Oh, and he's a Bildeberger attendee.
How can people be SO dense as to think Cain's just some average hard working joe.
Errr, my head hurts.

People shouldn't be required to be financial geniuses to not be poor.
Your attitude is unbelievable.
