Tea Party Leader Calls For Cain To Drop Out Following Libya Flub
Tea Party Nation head Judson Phillips says that Herman Cain should leave the GOP presidential race after his excruciating stumble in an interview with the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Phillips, who has endorsed Newt Gingrich for president, was referring to Cain’s inability to respond to a question about the crisis in Libya. “It is obvious Cain is in over his head and simply clueless,” Phillips writes in an alert to members yesterday, “Watching Herman Cain stumble around looking for an answer is beyond painful.”
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.
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?”
Indeed, the video is worth watching again:
