Herman Cain: 'Occupy Wall Street' Protests Planned to Help Obama

| by Michael Allen

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal (video below), GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain said he suspected that the 'Occupy Wall Street' protests were “orchestrated” to help President Obama, but also admitted he couldn't back up his conspiracy theory. Then Cain went on to slam unemployed people for their problems.

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... It is not someone’s fault if they succeeded, it is someone’s fault if they failed."
