ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain on Wednesday called the Occupy Wall Street protesters anti-American and anti-capitalistic.
"Don't be jealous, don't be envious," Cain said as he signed copies of his memoir. "I don't have much patience for someone who does not want to achieve their American dream the old-fashioned way."
When asked about the thousands of people that have been protesting in lower Manhattan, Cain said, "They're basically saying that somehow the government is supposed to take from those that have succeeded and give to those who want to protest. He added: "That's not the way America was built."
He added that the protesters "should go figure out what America is all about."
There's more in that article, go read it, it's great. Outside of a few hiccups, Cain has been spot-on for much of his campaign. I'm glad he's getting some success, and may even win the nomination. Romney's been a waffler, and while Perry has a lot going for him, his associations with KC-IHOP types is troubling to me.
Cain is right on with those remarks. The Occupy Wall Streets brats need to grow up and stop being used by the left push an agenda they'll come to regret.
