From the files of the absolutely bizarre comes Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain’s meeting with the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Journal Sentinel: So you agree with President Obama on Libya or not?
Cain: Libya. President Obama supported the uprising, correct? President Obama called for the removal of Qadhafi. Just want to make sure we’re talking about the same thing before I say, yes I agree, I know I didn’t agree. I do not agree with the way he handled it for the following reason – no, that’s a different one. I gotta go back to … Got all this stuff twirling around in my head. Specifically, what are you asking me, did I agree or not disagree with on what? … Here’s what I would have – I would have done a better job of determining who the opposition is and I’m sure that our intelligence people have some of that information. Based upon who made up that opposition – based upon who made up that opposition, might have caused me to make some different decisions about how we participated. Secondly, no, I did not agree with Qadhafi killing his citizens. Absolutely not. So something would have had to be – I would have supported many of the things they did in order to help stop that. It’s not a simple yes-no, because there are different pieces and I would have gone about assessing the situation differently, which might have caused us to end up in the same place. But where I think more could have been done was, what’s the nature of the opposition?
And here’s the video of Herman Cain’s meeting with the JS Editorial Board:
Can someone tell me when Herman Cain will cease to be considered a serious Republican presidential candidate?
I honestly think a moron could have come up with a more coherent answer on Libya than Herman Cain, who from week to week is lurching from gaffe to gaffe.
