Herman Cain To “Occupy Wall Street” Protesters: Don’t Blame Wall St, Blame Yourself (VIDEO)

As the “Occupy Wall Street” protests enter their third week and spread to cities across the country, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is expressing skepticism about the demonstrations.

“What do they want?” Cain asked when asked about the protests in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. “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,” he continued. “If you don’t have a job and you are not rich, blame yourself!”

Cain said the banks were in part to blame with the 2008 financial crisis, but he said, “We’re not in 2008 — we’re in 2011!”

The demonstrations “come across more as anti-capitalism,” he added.
