Watch Video

Clinton looks totally baffled, has no idea how to handle Cain.

FOXNews has been running this big time.

Some funny comments under the video...the one that made me laugh the most:

You can see the look in Billy boys eye "O $#@% this guy is a lot smarter than I thought."

It's true, Clinton got that "deer in the headlights" look once Cain started correcting him.

Very impressive. Clinton exposed as fast and loose with the numbers.

Big surprise.

Clinton thought he would razzle dazzle with his supposed command of numbers, until Cain points out that Clinton is using an erroneous base for his calculations. A 2% increase in cost quickly turns into a 16% increase when the proper figures are applied.

LOL That’s great. If he can pull it off and gets in the debates with Obama, I am going almost feel pity for Obama. Almost. I may not have any room for pity with so much laughter.

The best thing about the video is how much of a reversal of emotion Billy Jeff so plainly experiences. After he finishes his analysis he gets off a nice quip about being a satisfied pizzeria customer and then magnanimously exhorts the audience to recognize how important Cain’s question is. He thinks he’s nailed it and it was in fact a bravura performance. Clinton is plainly quite pleased with himself and thinks he’s home free.

Then Herman Cain comes right back at him and immediately shreds Klintoons assumptions and analysis. Instantly Slick’s face turns grim and his eyes start darting back and fourth. He weakly asks Cain to send him the analysis and then moves on. Bummer!

Cain and slick willy have more working brain cells in this ONE video exchange than Obama has in ALL of the speeches he has made to date.Cain is very astute and does win this argument but slick willy cut him off and spun it his way.BACK THEN people fell for this.

Cain didn’t just stop there. He ran commercials against hillarycare and it was eventually defeated.

Yep. Cain vs. Unable

Incidentally, coined here on FR by South40 2 days before Dennis Miller quip "Cain vs. Not Able"! You heard it here first, folks!

By the way, is Dennis Miller a FReeper?

Clinton is also much, much smarter than Hillary. I was surprized at how well Clinton was winging it - even though he was wrong. TOTUS couldn’t come close.

I watched this about a week ago and most highly recommend a viewing. The look on Clinton’s face is utterly priceless. Someone in the Clinton camp paid a heavy price for letting Cain near a mike. He schooled Billy Boy but good.

Actually, I used a variant of this on 8.25, one month before South40. But it was not as complimentary of Cain as his was. The play on words can take on many variables.

What I particularly liked was the manner in which Cain addressed Clinton and the calm demeanor he maintained. He was respectful. He was not accusing. He was not flip or sarcastic. He was erudite and concise. He was not emotional or pitifully pleading. He showed his talent for negotiating and taking command by being mature and wisely armed with facts that he explained succinctly. All great signs of an accomplished, leader who will maintain firm control and encourage people to work together...without creating the devastating gridlock,competition, and agnst that we now have in Washington.

A man like this can resolve problems by presenting facts, not giving empty speeches, making clever quips, and throwing out caustic comments that are arrogent and immature. Cain is self-assured, direct, intuitive, and convincing. Note how he was able to get Clinton to request taking a look at the figures he offered. That showed that he made Clinton willing to think about something that he had no real knowledge about beforehand.

It also showed that he was able to make a President respect the word of a civilian, rather than dismiss him with some blase, off the cuff responses... and it also showed Clinton gave Cain's analysis credibility. Quite a feat.

This man will be amazing in dealing with domestic issues and will command respect and cooperation from the international leaders.

Most importantly, his no nonsense approach will keep our enemies frightened of his word...and in check of their own actions and threats. It is obvious, no foolishness will be tolerated when Cain sits behind the desk in the Oval Office. And I bet he always wears a suit and tie every day he is there. He is a man to be admired for ages, and a man to be rewarded with the American vote of confidence. Go Herman Cain, you will get my contribution!!!

I sure expected a better comment out of you.

AA was not a part of Mr Cain's education as it was not a part of Walter Williams or Thomas Sowell’s...they were in college before AA even kicked in big time.

An as both Sowell and Williams has said.....AA does not help black Americans....It causes those that get into college on merit to be labeled as you did....The black communities had professional people, doctors, nurses, business owners long before AA kicked in...Age wise I expect Cain to be in the similar category as the other 2 mentioned...Cain is also the author of 4 books, math major and worked his was thought college....You can do better that label Cain an affirmative action person.

Watch the video cause he even put slick willy to shame in the discussion. He already had hair greying and that was during the Hillary care debacle...

Clinton is smarter than Obama, but I think they both have mastered simple techniques to impress weak-minded fools:

"Well, you're in the food industry? Folks, do you know that 40% of our food dollars are spent eating out? And let me just say that 20% of 7.9%, if you calculate in the ameliorated business tax, which is 4.5% in most states -- although in Nebraska it is 4.7% if I'm remembering that correctly -- so you can see right away that my plan is actually a perfect fit for the situation you are describing."

Most people will be so bowled over by the "brilliance" that they won't realize that the Emperor has no clothes. When an ideologue talks economics with a businessman, the Eggheads might think the ideologue sounds smarter, but people who really understand things will know that the businessman is right almost every time: he has to be.

There was a point at which he had a look on his face that was equal parts "who let him near the microphone and how fast can I fire them", "what the Hell am I supposed to say", and "how can I make this stop?"

It's good to see Cain getting some credit for helping kill off Hillarycare.

Well said, and then in the end, Slick Willie feigns sincerity and asks Cain to mail his data to Slick (as if Slick gives a rat’s ass about data that will

The one thing I have to say about Slick Willie (that even makes me miss him compared to the usurper we have now) is that he doesn’t have a mean, chip-on-the-shoulder arrogance that Obutthole has.

At any rate, here is another fantastic Cain interview on MSNBC:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Dq1kHXqHo8&feature=related

Pass that vid around, folks. He’s so far more articulate than Perry and he has original ideas and solutions.

My roommate was black, she hated that everyone assumed she was at school because of AA. Which is one the reasons she hated AA. She was a super intelligent Biology major.

The Black Student Union used to come by our room to recruit her. She wanted nothing to do with them. They didn’t like that I was her room mate (white). She was polite to them but always told me they were always causing trouble because they were there only due to AA and couldn’t keep up.

The only way to stop Romney who is the new England liberal (from the Rockefeller wing) is to deny the trick of “winner take all” in the primaries.We must stop it at the precinct level. McCain never got 51% of any state but he split the vote with six real conservatives. We need a wide open knock down drag out in the convention with candidates walking in with all their delegates from each state. Do not let the liberal wing screw us again. Please pass this on.
