ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain says the Occupy Wall Street protesters are un-American and against capitalism.
Speaking to The Associated Press during a book signing event Wednesday in St. Petersburg, Fla., Cain said the protesters shouldn't rally against Wall Street bankers or brokers because "they're the ones who create the jobs."
Cain suggests the protesters should focus on going to school and getting a job.
The former head of Godfather's Pizza made his remarks at a Barnes & Noble bookstore. He was in Florida to sign copies of his recently released memoir. More than 400 people attended the book signing.
