VIDEO: Cain: OWS Protesters Are 'Spoiled'

Occupy Wall Street protesters are a distraction, Herman Cain said. 


During an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan on Piers Tonight, GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain tried to explain his debate gaffe about being willing to negotiate "with terrorists" as president, saying that he misspoke. Then, in response to a question about whether modern American society is spoiled, he described Occupy Wall Street protesters as spoiled.

"I happen to think these demonstrators on Wall Street are spoiled," he said during the interview. "They are spoiled and manipulated. I happen to believe there was a coordinated effort to create all of this chaos and all of this distraction to cover for the failed policies of the Obama administration."

Cain makes the Obama administration sound quite omnipotent. If that is the case, President Barack Obama should just wave his magic wand to get Congress to pass the American Jobs Act and clean up the economy.
