CNN's John King explains the serious challenges Herman Cain faces in maintaining his surge in the polls.
I just heard Cain make a comment stating that "Wall street is not responsible" for we "MIDDLE CLASS (Occupy Wall Street)" people and our economic issues. Hmmmmmm, I have to say he is obviously not one of us (99% group) for my husband just had to take a ONE WEEK FURLOUGH (one week NO work – NO Pay – No unemployment) because the company he works for did not meet the "Financial Wall Street Goals" even though the company made profits. WHO paid the price for WALL STREET? We did the lower middle class. Cain and ALL politicians GET REAL and live our lives for ONE MONTH and then make such blanket comment.
John King, when you chided Herman Cain for suggesting that the foiled assassination plot of the Saudi Ambassador that has been linked to Iran is because President Obama is perceived as weak you totally misrepresented what Can said. I played the video several times. Cain did not say there was any report that brought him to his conclusion. He said it was his opinion. The only reports to which he alluded were those that linked the plot to Iran. Then you said you would like to see those reports. Come on. What report would make such a subjective statement about the perceived weakness of the president. What you stated about Cain in YOUR report is completely ridiculous.
