Herman Cain’s latest problem: Seems to have no idea what Libya is

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

This video is arguably worse than Rick Perry’s gaffe at a recent GOP debate – it’s Herman Cain attempting to answer a reporters question about Libya. It’s not a particularly difficult question, but as Herman Cain says in the interview after a long pause “I’ve got a lot swirling around in my head” before finally giving an answer.

Check out Cain’s latest gaffe:

The Blaze reports, “From the beginning of his answer, Cain takes a long pause (9 seconds) before speaking with what appears to be a twitching left eye. When words come out of his mouth, it does not get any better.”

Even Pat’s daughter had a better answer when Stu and Pat called her on the 4th Hour:

    Okay I have seen this all the videos and especially the one of Cain himself. And based on the sheer number of times I have seen public speakers freeze, even the Dear Insane One Mr Obama when the First Telepromptor Of the United States breaks down or falls over or is stolen has to wing it and makes multiple gaffs and freezes.

    Now this was a complete implosion, it does happen; look how many times both Bush Jr and Reagan were accused of being incoherant and such by the Democrats.

    Before anyone makes a mega deal out of this matter, like the Democrats and the Progressives will and are doing, then ask yourself this question — How many times in ANY conversation have you been asked a question you have an answer for and get caught up in a ultimate brain freeze?

    The reason he will be savaged by the media for this is mostly due to him being a black, conservative and successful businessman who seeks the job of the Presidency. He refuses to “conform” to the left’s ideals of a minority not under their thumbs, so he has to be destroyed any way possible.

    I was unfortunately listening today and could not believe my ears. What happened was the result of too much stress and fatique. His people should have been smart enough to make him take a couple of days off after the debate. I am a big Herman Cain fan, however this is going to be seen as not staying cool in a crisis(sp). He can come back as Perry is doing but he needs to get his foriegn affairs ability in order. A couple more of these “deer in the head lights” episodes and he is finished. I know that I have been hard on all of the candidates when they screw up, but this is the major leagues and we need a president that can handle the pressure for four years. The evidence of this is how President Obama seems to be coming unglued at the seems. His speaches are becoming more and more radical. How stupid can you be calling the American People lazy.

    USMC — I have to agree with you on the fact Cain needs to take a couple of days off, he is only human afterall. Yet the way I do see this as well is he had a true brain freeze moment, as any of us do on occasion. We shall see if he will now sharpen up on his foreign affairs matters and knowlege.

    In the case of Mr Obama, I have to declare he has gone beyond the point of “coming unglued” to the stage of “completely insane.” He knows that the window of opportunity for his radical agenda is now closing rapidly, his dreams are becoming his nightmares, and in his growing desperation he will soon go for broke.

    One thing I constantly have to warn people of here in AZ is the fact the more cornered he feels the more likely he will strike out in one final match; and most of us will not see it coming.

    Just like with the French in 1940, and the Allied forces in 1944 (The Bulge), we assumed that the Ardennes could not be breached by armored forces; somehow they forgot to tell the Germans the same thing. And yes, in the case of the Bulge, we did stop them, yet the key is they still struck out in a way most did not expect to happen.

Keep it up and we won’t have any decent men of Honor and Integrity running for office, just polished hacks and political charlatans well versed in deflection and deceit.

    As I have said elsewhere on this site, the problem here is not so much that Cain had a moment. It happens. We’ve heard Obama do similar things. The problem is that we have known for months that Cain has a glaring weakness when it comes to foreign policy: he really does not know much. I and others have said over and over that he has to bring someone like John Bolton on board and go to school. Clearly he hasn’t really done that. His “no, that’s the other one” sounded like me in HS Algebra. Not a clue.

    And the reality is that Libya is current, there have been earth-shaking events there concluding with the barbarism directed at Gaddafi and the installation of the new Sharia regime, not to mention Obama’s completely contemptuous attitude toward Congress (and by extension the American people) including certainly his lies about why we were going in.

    Tired as he may have been, none of that should have been hard for Cain, or any candidate who is basically conversant with the issues. It was one thing for Cain to flounder around when Chris Wallace asked about the “right to return”; that’s a little esoteric. Obama probably would have said “I can go back there any time I like.” But it’s been a while now, and Cain’s performances don’t get any better.

    I say this with sadness because I have really wanted Cain to win the nomination and trample Obama in 2012. Now I am afraid he really doesn’t have “it”, and I don’t see anyone else in the GOP field who I think can beat Obama. It’s sad. Nobody, not even Paul’s partisans, should be happy about it.

    It was actually a pretty good answer. Needed more of an assessment on who the opposition was. Truly it is a complex question. He clearly agrees with some of what Obama did, and not with other things. There are a lot of pieces of the Libya strategy, and he needed a feel for what the interviewer was asking. 

    How many times does he have to explain to the questioner that he would have better assessed the opposition to Kadaffi (or however it is spelled by the media these days).

    Seriously, I don’t see a huge problem here. This isn’t a Gaffe. This is an interviewer asking a complex question in an overly simplified way, and thus making it hard to know what is being asked.

    And I’m not even that fond of Herman Cain. He’s my third choice at this point, a little behind Michelle Bachman, and a long way behind the only candidate who really gets it–and has solutions for the real problems–Ron Paul.

    Totally agree.  He composed himself, for 2 minutes (too long), then delivered a very good, reasoned answer. Glenn and your professional-communicator sidekicks — cut Cain some slack. 

  • Anonymous

    What is the big deal about this……………..so he hesitated a few times in coming up with this answer, but the answer and response seems to be well thought out and really an appropriate response, given the fact the Cain doesn’t have all the insights into what drove Obama to make the decision he did.

    However, it also would have been a great opportunity on blasting Obama for doing an end run around Congress with regards to taking a military action.

    All said and done………….NO BIG DEAL!!  Everyone is just looking for an I gotcha moment……….gets pretty old doesn’t it??

    I like Cain and am willing to excuse this because I understand how this could have happened.  He’s been under huge stress, fielding lots of accusations, lots of crap thrown his way, appearing at debates, trying to smarten up on international items and countries.  It’s stress, stress, stress.  And it is the fault of his campaign manager and staff that they allowed him to appear without taking a few days off to de-stress.  And therein lies my problem with Herm.  He needs to immediately fire Mark Block and other advisers and get someone who knows what he’s doing.  Mark Block was on TV twice in the last two weeks making categorical statements and then having to admit he was wrong.  Check out Mark Block, American’s For Prosperity, for info on Block’s ethics issues when he was a campaign manager for another candidate, and keep Googling.  There lots there.  So I ask myself, how could someone with Cain’s savy make such a big mistake with the first big decision he has to make — hiring a campaign manager.    And it’s been suggested strongly that Block be replaced, but Herm says “no,” he’s staying.  Why, is what I would ask Cain if I could.  It’s the one and only reason I haven’t jumped onto his train yet.

    I really do not see anything so terribly wrong with this. So he hesitated…so what. His answer was pretty good. I actually prefer it when he hesitated rather that blurt out some answer that would truly get blasted by the media. He doesn’t know foreign policy and has clearly stated that he will surround himself with intelligent people to help educate him and to make the best decisions.

    I firmly believe that a president surrounded by intelligent and responsible people is much better than the opposite. Its synergy…and it works. And I am sure Cain used it in his management roles.

    Never was our great nation seemingly more helpless to stop a government honeycombed with treason and American citizens not knowing who to trust.  Forgetting a section of government a candidate wanted to eliminate or a lapse in time before a response to a question or a weak answer is nothing compared to the what our elected officals do every day…..Obama compares himself to Abraham Lincoln.  An e-mail I received compares the too very well. Lincoln was from Illinois , Obama was from Illinois; SECOND Lincoln was a tall thin lawyer; Obama was a tall thin Lawyer; THIRD Lincoln protected and defended the constitution, Obamas was a thin lawyer; FOURTH Lincoln was known as honest Abe; Obama was a thin lawyer, FIFTH Lincoln attempted to heal the nation, Obama was a thin lawyer. Get the drift?

    Cain is nothing but a FED stooge who hasn’t a CLUE on Foreign Policy or even on how the Economy works. He says that when he’s elected, he’ll “surround” himself with people who will help him make decisions, just as Obama did with his Czars. My fear is that he’ll have even MORE Wall Street CEO’s and FED stooges in his Administration than all the other Administrations COMBINED! (After all, they’ve done such a “bang-up” job so far, haven’t they?) Thus far, Cain has come up with a 999 TAX PLAN which is TOTALLY Regressive. That’s it!

    Ron Paul is the ONLY Candidate QUALIFIED to be President. All the others are either just Phony Neo-Conservatives or True RINO’s wearing Conservative Mantles. Too bad that Americans aren’t more exposed to Ron Paul’s TRUE Conservative views. The Media “paints” him as a Fringe Radical, but what’s REALLY Radical is a “so-called” Representative Republic, representing ONLY the Special Interests and NOT the People who elected them. When their Records of their past speak, the people should listen. (That goes for Newt, too) Conservative? Far from it!

    Newt is starting to appear as the best choice. At least he knows what’s going on,  He knows how corrupt the govt. is and tells you how corrupt they are.  He will actually say the words terrorism, and muslim extremism.  He isn’t  the guy with the perfect hair cut or doesn’t have the perfect smile.  Not in the best shape.  But he knows how bad the govt. is out of control and out of touch with the  people. So do you want someone that looks perfect or someone that kows what to do?
    Look at the guy now in the White House, everytime he smiles his head disappears.

    Newt is for big gov., remember when he poised with Pelosi and said that he believes in global warming, cap and trade, now he says he wished he hadn’t said that, you all call Romney a flip flopper, read about Newt he is one giant flip flopper.  He was on Meet the Press last May and he said “All of us have a responsibility to pay and help pay for health care and suggestd this could be implemented by either a mandate to obtain health Ins. or a requirement to post a bond ensuring coverage”.  That is worse than Obama care.  Newt has said that “either the constitution has to change or our thinking has to change”.  Voted for the Dept. of Ed., voted for Most favored Nation status to China, got NAFTA passed.  Beck should be alerted to Gingrich, Gingrich has said that he is a big fan of W. Wilson, and Franklin Roosevelt.  Be careful and do your homework.

    To be as succinct as your old buddy, O’Riley advocates, you, Glen, have proved history does repeat itself since you are back where you were after the election when “no one wants to come on your show anymore.”  
    I have followed you in great earnest for the past three years…have been educated…inspired…committed… I have prayed for you continually since it has been crystal clear the personal toll your commitment has taken on you and yours.  I have been so grateful that you have been willing to embrace God, and as a public figure, have not been embarrassed to encourage others to do so.

    But today, after hearing your diatribe regarding the Cain Libya comments, it has become clear to me that not only Herman is suffering from the media onslaught and torrents of ridicule, but it has finally likewise, turned you inside out. 
    I was stunned as I listened to you make fun of Cain’s obvious stress induced gaff…so stunned I had to pull off the road and park while I could make sure I was hearing you correctly.  When I got home, I went to your website to listen again…in hopes there was something I got wrong, or missed.  But no, there you were, in all your persona, not just reporting on the Cain interview, but actually making fun of- ridiculing- and demeaning someone you, at least in appearance, had so respected in the past.

    The real problem today Glen, is not how Cain responded, but how you responded.  Cain may have lost his composure…but you, dear friend, have lost your compassion.  Without that, truly without that…all the rest are just empty words.  And God knows, we have too many of those floating around our country.

    I’m not sure who that is in the plaid shirt who was trying to explain Cain’s possible lack of point, but whoever you are, please don’t allow yourself to be intimidated by Glen and his sidekick…don’t drown out what your heart says by the badgering taunts of others.  If you can’t stand in that arena and stay true to your own convictions and heart-song…find a new choir.

    I believe in you Glen.  Go back and recoup the parts of you others have chipped away at and dismissed.
    I will continue to pray for you.  You have been a leader worth following- please don’t turn into a follower being led.  God Bless you.

    You mean like Obama and his army of unaccountable czars? Sorry, but Cain used to be the Chairman of the board of directors of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank. This UN-Constitutional Institution is 100% responsible for the mess we’re in. If Herman Cain becomes President, he will “surround” himself alright…with “Technocrats” who will be looking out for the Best Interests of the Banksters, rather than for the People.

    Look at Europe. Greece and Italy just had their Leaders “replaced” with Banker “Puppets”…Technocrats! The Moral of the Story here is: “If you EVEN THINK about having the People VOTE on whether or not to accept more debt, you will be “replaced” (UN-Democratically) by someone who is sympathetic to the Money Manipulators.” (The Banksters!)

    This was not a brain freeze, which we all get. He looked like I used to look in class when I was trying to remember what I had been studying. I like Cain and thought he could overcome the sexual allegations, especially since the blonde with Allred looked and sounded like a scam. I don’t think this can be overcome. Libya has been in the news recently. This is current events as well as international policy concerns. As much as I like the guy, this really looked and sounded bad.

    I applaud Beck, he is the only one on the conservative side that is having the guts to say the truth.  Cain didn’t just forget, he didn’t know what the reporter was talking about, it is too important that we not nominate the wrong man and Cain is the wrong man for the job.  The dems would have a field day with him, this isn’t the only time that Cain has fluffed his answers.  By the way, he also believes in collective bargaining.

    Oh come on, Glenn is practically cheering over this flub.  I still take this over slick talking Romney.  Cain can learn to hone talking points, as Stew puts in in the 4th hour clip.

    What I heard (and I actually heard the entire clip, not just the first bit played here) was Cain very tired, and just plain forgetting the situation in Libya.  I think he may have been mixing facts up about Libya and Egyst, maybe, and didn’t know how to specifically address this- and he wanted to be specific, he was struggling to remember specifics.  I give him kudos for not just blowing hot air, as any “smooth talking” career politician would.  I am freaking sick of the smooth talk.

    True, I am a Cain supporter, call me biased if you like.  But Glenn came across as really over the top here- worse than Rick Perry’s flub?  What are you smoking?  This wasn’t a debate, for one- it was a newspaper interview.  And Cain’s team has already released a statement confirming the patently obvious: that he was dead on his feet here.  My brain slows down when I’m very tired. I can take long pauses between sentences, maybe even neglect to finish a sentence.

    When a guy is starting to speak his thoughts, which Cain appeared to be doing early on, he’s very, very tired.  Somehow, I don’t think he’d go into a debate with Obama like that.

    ‘Seems like Mr. Cain doesn’t read the newspapers, nor is he tuned in to the news on the tely. Is it because he doesn’t believe the papers or the newscasters aren’t always relaying the real happenings in the world, or for that matter the local events – which in many cases are true, these days, specially from the mainstream media? The other fact is, he’s been ruthlessly bothered by the mainstream media about the sexual harrasment allegations. Mr. Cain just isn’t prepared for such kind of assault..?

    I love Herman Cain, but I’m sorry to say he is just not very conversant on foreign affairs.  He didn’t know what the “right of return” was, regarding the Israel-Palestine issue, and now he gave a bad answer on Libya, showing he was not up to speed on that, either.  The left-wing media are having an absolute field day with Cain’s answer!!  They simply don’t care if Cain was tired that day.  Newt would NOT have answered in that way, no matter HOW tired he was.    Cain is a very smart man, but apparently not smart enough to hire some experts to spend time with him EVERY day, getting him absolutely up-to-speed on foreign affairs.  That’s the FIRST thing I would do, especially knowing that foreign affairs is not my strong suit.   As much as I love Cain, he will NOT be the GOP’s nominee for President.  However, Cain is so likeable, genuine, charismatic and refreshing, that I think he would make an excellent Vice President.  I would vote for a Gingrich-Cain ticket in a heartbeat!

    I resent your statement…I Have been a victim of rape. It was’nt meant as venom.The one woman worked for BHO,she was in similar circumstances AT LEAST 2 other times.Cain never was involved,it’s just easier to pay the women-What 34,000? Some women know you almost can’t win in a he said,she said situation…with no witnesses…and that’s why they do this shit…it pays. I find it interesting they trot out this crap when Cains surging in the poles,they’ll keep doing this until they get Their nomination against BHO_the dems ,rhinos Want Romney because Obummer will beat Romney/mormonism-It does’nt matter that the religous aspect is wrong-headed thinking,BHO will beat Romney….And I voted for Romney last time.

    Then you of all people, should be more understanding, don’t you find it strange that none of the other men candidates have been accused of harassment.  Cain never fared well in the polls against Obama, if it was the dems, then it would have been to their advantage to hold up about the allegations until cain would have been nominated and then gone after him, why do it now.  Anyway, there are just too many women that have said things about Cain, I believe it.

    And you’re falling right into their hands. Cain did poll even with BO,it’ll always be something against Whomrver canidate is surging,remember awhile back w/BO e-mail to “work on getting dirt” ,anything to pound the heck out of any opposition he has,and if that means dirty lying tactics-so be it…this is what BO Did for a living….and he’s a master of it. And other people have had the same old Proven lies recirculated,again,and again….Gingrich’s infedelity to his dying wife,repeated and proven-False….everyone…ad-nausem

    Yes, Cain would appoint people who do know about foreign affairs, and that is good judgement. But the damage has already been done by Cain. The left wing press are having a field day about Cain’s obvious lack of knowledge of foreign affairs. They are making Cain out to be an ignorant duffuss. And because of it, as Dennis Miller said on Bill O’Reilly tonight, “he can’t win.” I agree with Dennis Miller. Cain just doesn’t know enough to get the confidence of the American people. They’ll nominate someone else.

    Candidate Obama was elected in part  because he was a good orator and the Republican party was not enamored of its candidate McCain. As a good orator, Candidate Obama was the polar opposite of his predecessor, whose popularity had hit rock bottom during the last year of his term. Candidate Obama, despite his intellect and education neverthelss was a neophyte about foreign affairs. President Obama’s lack of experience, despite his knowledge has done him in on the foreign stage. I cannot tell who is guiding him on his decisions; but he has no clear policy initiatives.  Candidate George Bush also lacked knowledge of foreign affairs. What happened? Bush foreign policy was developed by others; Rumsfeld, Chaney, Wolfowitz and at times Condoleeza Rice. As none of the Republican candidates can consider foreign policy to be their calling card, (possible exception Newt) I am worried about the eventual candidate.

    Herman Cain has now on several occasions, demonstrated a serious lack of knowedge of foreign affairs. We cannot afford another ill informed or inexperienced President who puts his foreign policy in the hands of others.

    As this is an election about domestic policies, I think that is why Herman Cain has enjoyed a surge in popularity. He is a domestic policy candidate only with a one trick pony of a platform. You cannot respond as ineptly as he did to these simple questions and expect to be taken seriously on the international stage.
