Herman Cain: Unemployed worker, heal thyself

GOP presidential wannabe Herman Cain says Wall Street isn’t to blamefor the millions of Americans out of work.

It’s not the Republicans.

Nah, the blame for unemployment lies with thoese who don’t have jobs.

That’s right. If you’re out of work, look in the mirror. It’s all your fault.

Want to reduce unemployment? Simple. Get a job.

That simplistic answer may explain why Cain is the latest frontrunner contender in a GOP Presidential field where frontrunner ebb and flow like the tide.

“Don’t blame Wall Street,” Cain told The Wall Street Journal this week. ”Don’t blame the big banks, if you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself!”

Cain also got around to blaming President Barack Obama for unemployment, which punches a whole into his entire theory.  Obama has a job…for now…although Cain wants to put him out of work in 2012.

Cain’s bombastic claims came in response to the widespread protests on Wall Street and other financial centers over the state of the economy and high unemployment figures.

New job numbers out Friday aren’t expected to tone down the protests.  The numbers are forecast to be bad.
