LAS VEGAS — Presidential hopeful Herman Cain says the Wall Street protesters don't understand the economy and are misdirecting their frustrations.

Cain on Tuesday said the Occupy Wall Street activists should be camped out in front of the White House protesting President Barack Obama, not the bankers and investors in Manhattan. He says Obama and Washington politicians put in place the economic policies that the anti-greed activists dislike.

Cain says he isn't clear what the protestors want and asks whether the protestors expect Wall Street to write them checks.

Rep. Ron Paul of Texas said both parties are to blame for the 2008 Wall Street bailouts the activists are protesting. Paul says the middle class suffered in the deal.

The candidates' comments came during a Republican presidential candidates' debate in Las Vegas.
