John McCain is a white guy that ran for president in the last presidential election. Remember? Herman Cain is someone else.

I couldn't vote, as I don't think people should necessarily be blaming anyone. Sometimes people can blame themselves, but can also just be a few bad rolls of the dice in life.

WTF is the point of a politician who thinks it's a "blessing" that his parents taught him not to be jealous. The whole point of a politician is to be jealous. If they aren't out there jealously guarding our rights as citizens, what exactly are they there for?

While I do agree with his sentiments that the Occupy movement is misdirected, I wouldn't at all give the banks a "oh, the past is the past free pass". More importantly, I want a politician with a backbone rather than a wimp. I hate to judge on a sound bite... but that was pretty damning.

How about adding a poll option that says people should stop sitting around wasting time blaming others and put all their worrying energy into bettering their situation. Blaming politicians or Wall Street might make you feel better by providing a scapegoat, but it won't get you a job - even if you're right!

^This.^

Doesn't mean I'm a fan of Herman Cain as I'm certainly not due to other comments he has made.

I don't like Herman Cain's voice. I think he's an idiot. LOL But I think Democrats are supporting him, because if there is any justice in the world and any brain cells left, he will never be president, and he will be the perfect destined to lose opponent for Obama.
