Asshat Alert | Presidential Candidate Herman Cain Rails Against Wall Street Protesters, Says they “Should go figure out what America is all about.”

“I’m not sure I know why they’re there. If they’re there because they are jealous of Wall Street and bankers and people who have succeeded, then they’re there for the wrong reasons. This country is based on people who achieve their dreams and work.”


Cain rails against Wall Street protesters

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.”

More than 400 people attended the event. The former head of Godfather’s Pizza pulled up in front of the Barnes & Noble bookstore in a black luxury bus, and he entered the store to cheers and applause.

After winning the Sept. 24 straw poll in Florida, Cain has seen his popularity surge, especially among conservatives. He is showing well in many surveys, near front-runner and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who has raised more money.

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.”

Rest here…

What an Asshat…

      More proof Obama and the media are a cabal of evil liars…More and more people are saying forget about hiring attorneys and waiting around for the corrupt policians to fix this, they would rather hire assassins..

  2. Katheryn says:

    Spread the word…boycott Cain and his pizza…show him that the “deadbeats” can affect his business in the negative direction. When his business starts dropping…we’ll drop him a line that he needs to work a little harder!

      Yes, boycott his pizza joints; show him that we all need each other – producers need consumers. Tomato growers – don’t sell tomatos to Cain’s pizza — he scorns you; pepperoni producers – don’t sell your product to Cain’s pizza – he makes fun of you. Show him that he is only successful because of the orderly, in-the-past-reasonably-well-paid consumers about him,

    There is no way in hell or here , that this man made his money legally . We all now that success (wealth) in his mind is made through one fraud or another . That’s the American way since forever ..
    There are only a few who had an idea / creation that made them successful . The American Dream .
    .This guy needs first a drug check than ,
    Back ground check .
    Public Records search .
    Corporate fines paid for crimes . Government contracts have enriched most of the wealthy .Rick Scott pops up.
    Mr Cain has learned the American Way . His remarks are bold, brazen in your face lies .
    He will see what Occupy WS means to the 99 %

  4. lvent says:

    WOW, there is no one to vote for……

  5. Little Miss Sunshine says:

    How come there ain’t no brothers on the wall? Sorry, could not help myself. HA

  6. I am sending back my GODFATHER’S write this : )

  7. rictic says:

    Mr Cain, I want to achieve the American Dream, so let me just run this by you on how I plan to achieve it…
    1 OK Mr Cain I gues you have a Mortgage. Good thats what I was hoping for.
    2 Well Mr Cain I sent you a letter saying I was your new mortgage servicer and you haven’t paid me.
    3 Mr Cain I really want to work with you on this so just send me all your financial details and we will see if you can qualify for a Loan Mod.
    4 Sorry Mr Cain, I didn’t get your paperwork please send it again.
    5 Repeat step 4 ad nauseum
    6 Sorry Mr Cain you didn’t qualify for my loan mod. I’m going to have to foreclose on you.
    7 Whats that you say I haven’t got your note & mortgage. Mr Cain a few modified documents here, a copied signature there … Voila… A judgement in my favor from my good friend Judge Do$$ar… You now have 90 days to get out Mr Cain..
    8 Whats that Mr Cain you have nowhere to go.. Sorry Mr Cain you should have paid me your mortgage
    Thats what people are p*ssed at Mr Cain. Get the picture yet

    • rictic says:

      Update.. update… Mr Cain said if i carry out steps 1 to 8 then I would go to prison… Hmmm, REALLY Mr Cain, really…..

      • lvent says:

        Time for some good ole fashioned Walking Tall style justice…in America…..The establishment sucks.

      • rictic says:

        The Establishment are completely corrupt and getting more and more blatant with their fraudulent acts. It defies logic that if we were to perform the same type of acts that the Banksters perform on a daily basis we would be thrown in prison in a heartbeat. The Law only pertains to the little people, the 99%

      • lvent says:

        They all have pinnochio noses…I was watching CNBC earlier talk about the economy…why do I torture myself like this? I have to see what the enemy is up to I guess….Diana Olick looks worn out from lying..and they are all just sitting around the table telling lie after lie..The one anchor said I am trying to re-fi my mortgage? HUH? Sorry, not buying it….They all came to the conclusion that the credit market is frozen because there are DUH, NO JOBS….! WOW..Heil Hitler….They talked about the Wall Street protestors too…They said they are mainly a bunch of long haired kids who are probably not going to make a change……They are all asking for the can of whoop ass…it is coming..soon. When they least expect us…No one should be paying the mortgage, using their banks, credit or debt….We need a Nationwide Tax Revolt…Stop feeding the Beast America!….

      • housemanrob says:

        Vent……unless your looking for an epiphony on CNBC or WALL STREET………you are wasting your time…..not to mention torturing yourself!

      • lvent says:

        That’s what they want us to believe rictic….I am not buying it, no one is…Obama and CONgress are part of the Establishment…and the people are waking up to who the liars really are that are allowing this…….Obama said once in a rant, the U.S.CONSTITUTION is just an old piece of paper! That is not how the 99% feel about that old piece of paper….that is the social contract that separates all of us, from all of them! If the social contract is broken, the people must revolt…! Stop feeding the beast for starters…turn off the Mainstream Media except for Dylan Ratigan and…don’t give them any ratings…at all. Nationwide property tax revolt!!!!!

      • lvent says:

        Rob, believe me, I am not looking for any of that… I spy on them occasionally…you do get snippets of truth here and there…Bloomberg reported today that Ireland wants to be the first to remove itself from the IMF TYRANNY!!!! NOW THAT’S POSITIVE NEWS…….. If that happens, that will be a worldwide trend…….After all they can’t prove we owe them any money…because we dont…..they are investors, not owners….They are the main instigators of the Hitler Plan…

      • rictic says:

        Yep Vent, The Mighty O and the Congress Critters are simply lap-dogs to the NWO and as such, in my opinion, should be considered as part of The Establishment. The Mighty O and many of the Critters alredy believe themselves to be above the Law.
        Ratigan is the only MSM news show I even bother to watch, everything else is nothin more than a group of talking heads spouting what their owners tell them to say.
        Matt Taibbi is one of the few journos I will read.

      • lvent says:

        rictic, yes they do want all of us to believe they are all above the law or the laws don’t apply to them….., Bernanke, Holder and Geithner too…People are waking up, thank God… I am a big fan of Matt Taibi…he really gets it….

  8. Ron Moss says:

    Cain is very naive or how ever you spell it. As a formember of the Federal reserve he wants to fix not remove,

  9. Ramon says:

    If Obama takes this issue, that of corruption, and owns it. If he makes sure the VA loan guarantee office in Atlanta is investigated in a high profile way,and prosecutions are made where indicated, and high profile hearings are broadcast, and examples made of them precisely because they are the VA, and not some other, he will OWN THE ELECTION.

    • albi says:

      Unfortunately, Obama needs millions to campaign for re-election, and he cannot raise that kind of money from the 99%, who are mostly out of work, homeless and/or struggling to make ends meet. So where is Obama going to turn for funding? To the 1% who own all the wealth. And once the 1% buys Obama’s allegiance, it is to that 1% that Obama will be committed. The Wall Street Mafia donated millions to Obama’s first presidential campaign, and that is why no one on Wall Street is being indicted or prosecuted for fraud. Have you seen any CHANGE from Obama? Have you seen any TRANSPARENCY? Obama’s appointment of Timothy Geitner, a former Goldman-Sachs minion who cheated on his taxes, told the story early on about where Obama’s allegiances are, and they are NOT WITH THE 99% OF AMERICANS.

      • Katheryn says:

        Unfortunately, the proof is in the pudding as they say! I have no faith in any of them. It’s all about the MONEY

  10. Johnny Danniel says:

    Incredibly dumb. People are in the streets precisely because voting for Idiocy in either party has proven to be ineffective.

  11. Albi says:

    Herman Cain is running for the presidency with that kind of elitist attitude? Obviously, Cain thinks fraud is part of the American Dream. We should all feel compelled to BOYCOTT GODFATHER’S PIZZA.

  12. housemanrob says:

    ….a traitor to his country…..a traitor to his race……….a traitor to Dr Martin Luther K ing……….a traitor to democracy……another champion of facism….may he burn in hell……with the rest of them. Judgement day is coming!

  13. Mike G. says:

    Where has Mr. Cain been the last few years, under a rock or in a coma? I see the protestors on TV and read there signs saying GREED, CORRUPTION, FINANCIAL PREDATORS, THIEVES, PERPETRATORS, LIARS, FRAUDSTERS which is all absolutely true.

    Since it’s clearly obvious that Mr. Cain can’t see Wall Street for what it really is (or he’s already been bought off too) …then he will definitely continue to be part of the problem and NOT THE SOLUTION!

    I have a 4 letter word for him and his candidacy…NEXT!!

  14. rictic says:

    So what you are really saying Mr (and I use the term very loosely) Cain is “.. my good friends the Banksters have “donated” lots and lots of lovely green $$$’s to my camapign fund, so I am going to get my knee pads out and Bl0w them at every opportunity I get…”. Thats what you mean isn’t it Herman. Sir, you are an Arse.

  15. Daniel says:

    Any candidate who doesn’t fully grasp how the monetary system works is IN NO WAY qualified to run for the highest office in the land. We are not taught in the public schools about the one subject that has the most effect on our lives – FINANCE/MONEY!!!!! Mr Cain’s comments reveal his ignorance regarding the banking system which clearly shows Herman is unqualified. The only qualified candidate is Ron Paul, all the rest are ego maniacs fooling themselves and trying to fool the people. Go Ron Paul!

  16. Wayne says:

    You shoud stick to the material at hand, and not presidential politics. Presidents have very little, if anything to do with this as they are UN willing to do anything about it. A presidential candidate badmouths some kids (who want to replace capitalism with anything else because they have never seen life in a socialist country) camping on wallstreet….so what.

  17. leapfrog says:

    “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.”

    So, Mr. Cain, its just fine that the government has TAKEN 16 trillion dollars from the taxpaying successful people, without their permission, and basically GIVEN it to Wall Street and how dare we protest? Let us eat cake? I don’t think so.

    You are a hypocrite, Mr. Cain. You will not be winning this election, so pack your bags and go home.
