Skip to comments.Rick Perry Zings Herman Cain [on Laura Ingraham's show]
Posted on 01/12/2012 11:19:44 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
Looks like theres a little war brewing between Rick Perry and former presidential candidate Herman Cain, who recently criticized the Texas governors depth and knowledge of political issues.
I hope Herman doesnt think running a Godfathers Pizza is the same as running the state of Texas, Perry said on Laura Ingrahams Radio Show after the host played a clip of Cains comments and the Texas governor touted his job creation record in the state.
During an interview on the Fox Business Network Wednesday, Cain called Perry a foregone superstar who wasnt deep on any of the issues.
He started out with a lot of hoopla, and it wasnt deserved, because the media, as well as the establishment, wanted to make him a foregone superstar as soon as he got in the race, Cain said Wednesday morning. And he had to debate. People found out that he had very weak debating skills, in my opinion. He wasnt deep on any of the issues, and this sort of thing.
Perry continued to criticize Cains 9-9-9 plan, which became the platform for the former candidates presidential bid.

Youre being kind, Imus said.
You know, Im trying to be respectful, Cain responded.
Cain suspended his campaign last month amid allegations of sexual harassment and a 13-year affair. His bid was also dealt a blow by a series of gaffes that brought attention to his lack of experience on foreign policy and other issues; among his campaign-trail stumbles, he appeared at a loss when asked by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to critique President Obamas Libya policy.

Oh shut up and go away, Herman.
I think Cain, Hannity and Luntz should take their act on the road.
They’ll be a hit on stage with Mitt Romney.
Perry’s ability to ignore the bait has been one his very weak points. He’s on a stage much larger than the round table in Austin and thus his quirks show up much quicker and to a much broader audience.
Cain was still a better overall candidate than Rick “Vulture Capitalism” Perry. When Perry finally drops out he can run as Hugo Chavez running mate in Venezuela.
“I think Cain, Hannity and Luntz should take their act on the road.

Bingo! Birds of a feather, all of them.
I was a Cain supporter, even donated to his campaign.
It wouldn’t break my heart for Perry to drop out, though I certainly don’t blame him for sticking it out until SC.
My support of Cain had little to do with Cain’s understanding of political issues, and Cain himself admitted that in large and critical areas (e.g. Foreign Policy) he would have to substantially rely on others.
Perry has been a successful governeor for well over two terms. It is laughable to claim that he doesn’t understand at least the domestic issues.
For some reason (Twitter note by AZ operative?) Cain seems to want to blame Perry for the flock of floozies that trampled throguh his campaign. To me, there are at least two more likely targets.
Even if Perry or his operatives were instrumental, it does a Cain no good to state something that
1. Is not true
2. Invites a comparison where he is unlikely to come out ahead.
I wouldn’t mind a clear field for Santorum, but I also would be okay with a clear field for Perry. Providing locker room bulletin board material is no way to promote a mature way to work out a counter to the Romney candidacy.
I am disappointed in Herman Cain.
#1, Cain shoudn't be saying this stuff. To my knowledge he hasn't endorsed anyone. Sounds like sour grapes to me and does not speak well of him. Fact is, Governor Perry has run a very large state with a large and complex economy. He's in his third term there and is the longest sitting governor in the country and the longest in Texas histoyr. Clearly, millions of people in Texas like him, whatever other faults not with standing.
#2, Perry should not even respond. He should ignore this. If he has any hope of getting back in the race, he has much more important things to worry about. He should keep pushing jobs, his reduced term congress, foreign policy, etc.
Anyhow...a really wierd election cycle this...precisely when the GOP and conservatives need a very strong and well oiled machine.
Perry’s new ad “ CHAMPION “
OH MY GOSH, talk about hutzpah. Cain your so damn full of yourself it's pitiful and disgusting
And he had to debate. People found out that he had very weak debating skills, in my opinion. He wasnt deep on any of the issues, and this sort of thing.
AND YOUR DEBATING SKILLS WERE? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. 9-9-9. Yes, lets' talk about deep issues, rofl.
Herman was thinking about Deep Dish Pizza , I suppose ....
It would be nice if Perry would break double digits in SC and then graciaously bow out with a win.
What happens is they get a little bump and start thinking they can keep on winning.
Cain, whom I oriniginally supported, should just keep quiet unless he wants to endorse someone.
Well, maybe, as that man certainly has a lot of sauce.lol
You’re dreaming. Your love for Cain has turned into obsession.
Cain never had anything to recommend him. No experience (except brief stint as pizza boss) no foreign policy knowledge AT ALL.
And he was mean and hateful from the start. He dissed Perry constantly and LIED about him.
I thank God for that last woman. She got the Cainster out of here and now he should just shut up and please go away.
“Well, maybe, as that man certainly has a lot of sauce.lol”
But the poor guy can’t count past 9 9 9 ! LOL
