Herman Cain weighs in on Occupy Wall Street:
“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.”
Although I appreciate hippie-bashing as much as the next guy, I don’t think that Cain intended to demean the OWS protesters. His comments certainly have been taken as though they were antagonistic (Rod Dreher: “His is a pure example of the Republican Id”), but in context it sounds more as though they were intended as personal advice. He proceeds to talk about his own experience overcoming poverty: “I was blessed to have had parents that didn’t teach me to be jealous of anybody, and didn’t teach me to be envious of somebody. It is not a person’s fault if they succeeded, it is a person’s fault if they failed.” Sounds like he’s just offering helpful advice.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
