Crooks & Liars: GOP Debate Crowd Cheers Blaming Protesters for Lack of Jobs


-By David

October 18, 2011- The audience at Tuesday night's CNN Republican presidential debate loudly expressed their approval of Herman Cain's statement that the Occupy Wall Street protesters should blame themselves for not having jobs.

"Yes, I do still say that," Cain told debate host Anderson Cooper.

With that, the candidate was forced to pause while the crowd erupted in cheers and whistles.

"I still stand by my statement... Wall Street didn't put in failed economic policies. Wall Street didn't spend a trillion dollars that didn't do any good... They ought be over in front of the White House taking out their frustrations," Cain inisted.

Rep. Ron Paul quickly took the side of the protesters.

"I think Mr. Cain has blamed the victims," Paul explained. "There's a lot of people that are victims of this business cycle. We can't blame the victims."
