I was wrong about Herman Cain.
I said originally that Cain could stay on message better than almost any other candidate. His 9-9-9 plan was all he would talk about and I attributed that to good messaging on his part.
I was wrong.
It is not messaging. Cain cannot talk about anything else.
Tonight there is a video from the Journal Sentinel online that show an interview with Herman Cain. Forget the sexual harassment allegations. Forget Mark Block’s gross incompetence. Herman Cain needs to leave the race because he is not qualified to be President.
The video is painful to watch. It is obvious Cain is in over his head and simply clueless.
And this man wants to be the Commander in Chief making decisions?
Candidates have something called briefing books. These are prepared by staffers and contain, among other things, topics candidates are expected to have at least a passing knowledge of. Cain may not be expected to know the name of the President of Montenegro or the Prime Minister of Moldavia, but Libya is a question that will obviously come up
Watching Herman Cain stumble around looking for an answer is beyond painful. He looks to the ceiling, desperately seeking an answer. He responds in vague talking points.
Unfortunately for Herman Cain, Ron Paul was not there to throw him a lifeline.
What this shows more than anything is a stunning lack of preparation by not only the campaign staff, but by Herman Cain. This was not even a semi obscure question like what should American policy be towards Sri Lanka.
In the debate last Saturday night, Herman Cain’s foreign policy philosophy seemed to be, ‘I’ll surround my self with people who have a clue because I do not.’
Earth to Herman Cain. You cannot subcontract out the duties of President.
This is not deciding whether you will sign a ceremonial proclamation for national railroad month.
Newt Gingrich would have had no problem with this. Neither would Michele Bachman, or Ron Paul or Rick Santorum or even Mitt Romney or Jon Huntsman.
Herman Cain has some very dedicated supporters. A few days ago, when I came out saying he should leave the race, they expressed their displeasure towards me in no uncertain terms.
To the Cain supporters, I simply say watch this video and ask yourself, “Is this the man you want answering the red phone in the White House at 3 AM?”
Somehow, I just don't have a problem with a president that would insist on getting all the pertinent information before making a commitment. It's a much better policy I have seen from the last 3 presidents.
The media and D.C. establishment are doing everything in their power to topple Cain. Watch the other hand, folks. Go Herman Cain!!!!
Hey, they are going to go after who ever is in the lead, although they really haven't hammered Romney enough!
Earth to Judson. You most certainly CAN "sub-contract" the duties of president. It's how the job is done. It's why Herman Cain is a success in the business world.
Seriously, are you not aware of the principle of "staff command?" Do ya think every executive in the world runs their company (or their country) as a solo act?
A briefed Herman Cain is more capable than ANY of the RINO's in contention for the nomination..and certainly more capable than the ignorant man-child currently holding the sought after position..and Cain has that little thing called "conservative principle" to boot..don't sell him down the river over a fumbled question.
Herman Cain is a devotee of affirmative action. What makes you think he would select the more intelligent advisor over the more "minority" advisor?
Herman Cain didn't come up through the system. And I've seen no videos, links, or articles of any kind to support your 'accusation'. SO post 'proof' of your accusation, if you please.
Like I said before Mr. Cain is not ready for prime time. His knowledge of world affairs is lacking. His acumen in the global and domestic politic is grossely inadequate. He is not the candidate that we want standing toe to toe with Obama. We Have one chance to save this country and that is to defeat Obama in 2012. Mr. Cain is not the person who can do that. http://www.teapartynation.com/video/cain-interview-on-libya
Watch the video at the above link. You will see that what I say is true.
I am amazed at how so many on our side are so eager to spear our own over minor gaffs. Obama and Biden continue to make much more serious gaffs, not to mention the litany of gaffs from 2008 when the bisexual, crack cocaine, Kenyan Muslim Marxist was running (unqualified) for the office. Cain will do just fine.
Herman Cain, tired and stressed, or not, is not fully able to answer this -- as any other member of our Govt -- because they are not allowed too! Since Cain is/was a member of the CFR -- which is the American version of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) created in 1919 -- I am sure Cain is fully aware of all this and knows he cannot truthfully speak on it -- as much as he may like to -- he simply can't. Probably would seal his fate and his family's. But we must learn this, know this and speak about it to everyone we know !!
POTUS Obama at the Vatican Corporate headquarters
POTUS is the Chief Executive (president) of the Corporation of the United States operating as any other CEO of the corporation — governs w/a Board of Directors (cabinet officials) and managers (Senators/Congress) Obama as others before him is POTUS — operating as “vassal king” taking orders once again from “The City of London” through the RIIA (Royal Institute of Intl Affairs). The Illuminati (founded by the The Society of Jesus or Jesuits, the largest Roman Catholic Religious Military Order headed by the Black Pope) created the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) in 1919. The American equivalent to the RIIA is the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR). The RIIA and CFR set up Round Table Groups (based on the King Arthur myths).
What did the Act of 1871 achieve? The ACT of 1871 put the United States back under British rule (which is under Vatican rule). The United States people lost their independence in 1871.
When the president takes the oath of office he is swearing to defend the Constitution of the District of Columbia, the INCORPORATED government. He isn’t promising to preserve, protect and defend the original Pennsylvania Constitution of 1776. See for yourself – “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” It doesn’t state – “Constitution for the United States of America” which was drafted for “We the People of the United States”.
It is for this reason that Obama never got a declaration of war from Congress for Libya. He didn’t need one. Under the corporation constitution, the Constitution of the United States, Obama is the CEO and master of his corporate domain called the United States. His loyalty is to the District of Columbia, an INCORPORATED government which is financially controlled by London and their Federal Reserve bankers, which is controlled by the Vatican. Obama is president of corporate America – looking out for its corporate interests.
Wake up America !!
Here we go again. More silliness.
