Herman Cain Caught Lying in GOP Debate
John Galts Blog via open salon ^ | OCTOBER 12, 2011 4:05PM | Joh Galts Blog

Posted on 10/12/2011 3:52:57 PM PDT by marty60

Herman Cain has been caught lying in last night's GOP debate. Cain, who was the former deputy chairman and then chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve throughout the 1990's, had been opposed to an audit of the Fed. He had also said that Ron Paul supporters frequently ask him "annoying questions" about a Fed audit, even accusing the Paul campaign of sending agents to harass him at every event he attends. According to the Daily Caller:

The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of Cain’s book, “This is Herman Cain,” which goes on sale Oct. 4. In the manuscript, Cain claims Paul’s campaign “sends one of its ‘Paulites’ everywhere I show up.”

“I get the same stupid question at almost every one of these events,” Cain writes. “I know it’s a deliberate strategy. How can a person randomly show up at a hundred events and ask the same stupid question to try to nail me on the Federal Reserve? It’s really becoming annoying more than anything else.”

For a reality check: 1) Cain has NO national Campaign office system. 2) He has little or NO money to be a serious contender. 3) He is on an ego trip. The guy in NYC had "the rents to damn high" Cain has "999"

Since Cain has a propensity to tell lies. Maybe he can RELEASE the suppose Vetting of 999 by his Super Double Secret Economic Brain Trust.

I guess the libs realize Cain is for real. Its time to ramp up the trashing of the conservative black candidate. They realize Romney is much easier to defeat.

I agree. I have witnessed Cain tell two lies already. This is unfortunate. He has a problem with telling the truth. He is also stuck on this stupid 9-9-9 plan which I cannot support.

Unless Perry gets his act together I have no candidate to support right now. I like Newt in the debates but that doesn’t extend to supporting him for the Presidency.

I placed a bid on Ron Paul's wandering eyebrow on eBay!

If he becomes president...I'll be rich (if I have the winning bid).

No chance of that, eh?;-)

For a reality check: 1) Paul will get creamed in the Primary 2) He's a Nut 3) All of his supporters are either anti-war people from the Left, or are so far off the Libertarian scale its hard to tell them apart from Larouchers.

Let’s see: Cain, Laffer, and Forbes on the side of the Fair Tax vs a frothing Paulbot spewing lies.

I think I’ll stick with 9-9-9.

The auditing of the fed and his opposition to assasination of an American citizen. He opposed both and when asked he changed his position and lied about his previous positions. Both of those items are easy to fact-check.

READ (if you can) the article and watch the vids. Paul called him on it and he said he NEVER made that statement. OOPs, he wrote it in his book. That’s the way Cain works first he lies then he changes his story.

There is no there there. And all the Cainiacs are going to b made fools of by a man that doesn’t even want to be President.

That’s the second one day troll I’ve seen. The other is a paid supporter of Perry on another thread. The posts are straight from a campaign consultant’s lips.

You, like Rush Limbaugh, have it wrong. Demrats do not like Romney bacause he can be defeated. They like him because, if he wins, they win. Romney is a demrat-controlled RINO. How else does one explain Romneycare? And how else does one explain his being elected in ultra liberal Ted Kennedy Massachusettes?

Wake up and smell the coffee.

When questioned by Ron Paul about his position on a Fed audit in last night's debate, Cain suddenly changed his position. He claimed he never used harsh language when referring to Paul supporters and insisted Dr. Paul shouldn't believe everything he reads on the internet ...

I watched the video. That is not what he said. The blog is a lie.

OK - I’ll take a swing at it. This morning, Mike Church (who has his head buried so far up Ron Paul’s sphincter that he can see the world from Ron Paul’s navel) played the debate clip with Paul’s question to Cain and Cain’s response. He then played the clip of the supposed lie from 2010. What I heard was Cain say in 2010 exactly what he said last night. He didn’t believe an audit would turn up anything, but that anyone who wanted one was free to try. He said a lot of pointless audits are done - of course lest we forget, Cain was the director of a branch of the Fed in KC, which may be somewhat distant to the powers the Chairman has. Anyway, Mike Church then said, “See, Cain lied.” I used to find Church to be a good listen but he has become a Paul worshipper to such an extent that it is sickening. No candidate is perfect on all issues.

Flame suit on and secured.

It's fascinating that the three GOP "front runners" were...

Mitt Romney -- A country club Rino who favors ObamaCare like legislation.

Rick Perry -- a man who auditioned for The Bilderberg Group in Istanbul in 2007, and favors granting money to illegal aliens,

and Herman Cain who served in the Federal Reserve System that has a monopoly over our money supply at a time when our country 15 Trillion in debt.

All coincidences no doubt.

Meanwhile Sarah Palin gets run out of town.

I found this video on youtube where Cain, who was filling in as host on the Neal Boortz radio show, offered his opinion on the Fed. Check it out:

I recommend that people do watch that video. It truly shows how stupid and deceitful this blog is.

You just have to laugh when you see a Paul supporter refer to another candidate as 'not a serious contender'.

It's like an Obama supporter pointing out someone's 'lack of experience'.

At the end someone should say enough is enough with Cain the TALKER and goes after what he said in the past as a talk show host, as a preacher, and as a politician, goes after his business deals and of course keeps exposing his disaster called the 9-9-9 tax plan. The issue is that no one is taking him seriously so far but if they do not do anything about him soon we may end up with another Christine O’Donnell but this time on a national level.
