Cain - Move Protests to the White House

( - Republican presidential nominee candidate Herman Cain called for the Occupy Wall Street protestors to relocate to the White House, in remarks he made Friday at the Family Research Council’s annual Values Voter Summit, in Washington, D.C.
“When a reporter asked me the other day, well, what do you think about those demonstrations up on Wall Street, I said, first of all, Wall Street didn’t write these failed economic policies -- the White House did,” said Cain.
He then added, “Why don’t you move the demonstrations to the White House?”
The Values Voter Summit is a three-day conference that brings together conservatives aligned on traditional ideas, beliefs and values. The summit also included appearances by presidential nominee candidates Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and Newt Gingrich.
“Wall Street didn’t write those failed policies, Wall Street didn’t spend a trillion dollars,” said Cain. “Wall Street isn’t asking to spend another $450 billion. It didn’t work with a trillion. It’s not gonna’ work with $450 billion. You can demonstrate all you want on Wall Street. The problem is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!”
Cain also quoted the Declaration of Independence, stating that “it is the right of the people to alter and to abolish” the government. “We’ve got some altering and abolishing to do!” he said.
“I want to thank you all for being here, because that means you get it,” Cain remarked. “And you’re not going to let the liberals take this country down.”
“I may not have ever held a high political office, but I know what leaders do,” said Cain, who made an appeal to those in attendance with an endorsement of traditional values, pro-life beliefs and an understanding that marriage is defined as between one man and one woman. He also said as president he would have asked the Department of Justice to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which the Obama administration is not doing, and is, in fact, actively opposing.

I'm liking this guy more and more every day. I'm especially liking the fact that he's never held a high political office, we need more fresh faces in DeeCee. I am a supposed "racist" Tea Party member and I would cast my vote for this man (only because a West/Rubio ticket is apparently out of the question).

I have to agree with the other two comments. Mr. Cain is sounding better and better everytime he has something to say. And that's coming from a canadian just watching the show. Good luck Herman.
BTW, Wirecutter, I really enjoy your blog, especially CGD, 'cuz I've got one too!

So far he hasn't stepped on his dick. If there is any little thing in his past you know the dim machine will find it and shout it from the rooftops [CNN, MSNBC, etc.,etc.]
He is good on 2A and seems to have his shit together. I like 999.
