You can watch the full video, or separately the interview with Cain or the Debate between Jindal (for Perry) and Pawlenty (for Romney)
(Excerpt) Read more at msnbc.msn.com ...
How about you stop desperately trying to smear the other candidates and make a case FOR your candidate for a change?
At the same link, when the video is playing, you can click on “transcript” and read it too.
Would be nice if Perry could make the case for himself. So far he is zero for three in an unfriendly environment.
I had the actual title “Meet the Press” the rest was informational.
You are being beyond ludicrous: “Quit making up your own headlines in a vain attempt to smear Cain? “
How is posting a link to the video and transcript of an interview with Cain, so people can hear him in his own words “SMEAR”?
Wow, that makes it useful for me! Someone has thought about deaf folks.
Ping for the Cain Train Pinglist!
FReep Me if you want to be added!
It’s hard to believe you Perry people are really this delusional. Cain knocked this interview out of the park.
You will give Cain a pass because you are also a fraud and dishonest with yourself.
Odd how the Perrybots and the Romneybots are using the exact same campaign tactics. The never ever make a case FOR their candidate, they merely slander and lie about all the other ones.
So which campaign are you Perrybots actually working for?
Do you think that is gonna fly? If Cain breaks the 30% mark I will be surprised. I expect Perry to be back in the high teens by the end of the week. Cain's blocking for Mitt is coming to an end.
I got it MNJohnnie, your girls Bachmann and Palin stiffed you and it's all Rick Perry's fault. Bachmann was gonna be the one and Perry swaggered on the scene but but Palin is gonna enter the fray and she'll make it all better but then she left you at the alter and now Cain is gonna get even with mean ol Rick Perry.
It ain't happening! When Palin endorses Perry your freaking head is going to explode.
Your best bet would be to watch Perry's speech in PA, support Cain if you must but leave yourself a way back to the Perry camp because in the end, he'll be the one taking on Romney....wait...he still is the only one taking on Romney. Interesting.
I agree1 Good interview with a crappy liberal interviewer.
One thing that I give credit to is Cain’s willingness to take on the libs without shame. I couldn’t believe that he went on the View!
You are a liar. Cain has used that ‘electrified fence’ line in MANY speeches over the months. It’s the SAME joke that Freepers do all the friggin’ time. “alligators in the moat...”
Liberals have no sense of humor.
Perrywinkles have no sense of humor.
Perrywinkles must be liberals... or RINO Romney supporters.
Perry is dead in the water.
I have no dog in this Perry / Cain fight as I support Newt,for now, but after watching this vid can anyone feel comfortable with Mr. Cain at the helm of our foreign and military policy? He once again brings up this group of experts, and has nothing substantive to say about what he would do in A’stan, Iran, Iraq et al.
A vote for Perry is a vote for Romney.But that’s okay, since he blew his shot.
Perry is between 9 and 16 percent in the latest polls. Cain has just jumped up there in the last two weeks but has yet to reach where Perry was in his first few weeks. He is now being vetted. We will see if he sustains it. He is a very motivational speaker, that is for sure.
We don’t care about the Cain interview. Meet the Press also had a debate between Jindal (for Perry campaign) and Pawlenty (for Romney campaign).
Go to the link and watch the video.
Or something similar.
Then by your logic, you just shoot from the lip and then call in the people who are tasked with the job to tell you where you messed up? Geez, that’s about as smart as Newt’s Scuzzyfava (sp) elitist support of a liberal candidate, just because she put an R next to her name? Then to make natters worse, berate those of us who called him on it as not being smart enough to understand. BTW, how is that Pelosi Global Warming scene setting with you?
Thanks for the video link, but next time save yourself some grief and just post the legit headline and let everyone decide what they think.
Yes We Cain! Cain is fearless in front of the liberal media. He handles himself with great dignity and strength in this interview.
How is it a smear attack to post a link to the interview this morning? I haven’t even seen it, but can’t Cain speak for himself? Cainbots are getting a little paranoid.
Here’s one example from last friggin’ MAY.
I found that after less than ten minutes of research and that wasn’t the first time that I’ve heard Cain say it.
Now who’s lying?

IF you'd rather NOT be pinged FReepmail me.
IF you'd like to be added FReepmail me. Thanks.
A humorous quote from your link, Marie...
“And if they can get over that fence and that electric barbed wire, I’ll give them a job at Godfather’s!”-Herman Cain
Another quote from a debate...
“I would bring a sense of humor because America is too uptight.-Herman Cain
he didn't mention moats or alligators.

The only one I know who said they want a full fence is Bachmann. Did Cain or is he just joking his way around the speech circuit?
David Gregory: Would you deport illegal immigrants in the country right now?
Herman Cain: Here is my approach to illegal immigration. Here again, this is whats resonating with the people. How I would solve the problem. Its not as simple as, would you deport. We must secure the border. It would be a combination of a physical fence, technology and in some areas we might have to put troops there. We must secure the border. Secondly we must promote the path to citizenship thats already there. We need to clean up the bureaucracy. Third enforce the laws that are already there. The way you do that is number four, which is a bold idea empower the states to do what the federal government cant do and wont do as far as dealing with illegals that are in the United States today.
Gregory: Why you and not Mitt Romney?
Why me and not Mitt Romney? Mitt Romney is a great businessman. I have a lot of respect for him. He has been more of a Wall Street executive. I have been more of a Main Street executive.

SO he’s a laugh machine?

Isn’t this EXACTLY Perry’s view?
WE are not running for President of the United States.
This is a security issue not a joke, CAIN is running for the nomination, there is a difference.
ping for later.....
he wont go on record for a full border fence or for deportation and he wants to pass the burden the Feds should be carrying to the statse to "do what the federal government cant do and wont do as far as dealing with illegals that are in the United States today.
Hey Cain why dont you give them in state tuition so they can be productive citizens or at least their children of whom the states have been paying for for years to educate anyway. Since you wont deport or are you gonna pass deportation to the states?
And Rick Perry has been the Executive of the most successful state in the Union since the Obama recession.
If you watched Mr.Cain’s responses on foreign issues and you’re okay with them then we have differences far too large to solve here. I expect a candidate to know what “right of return” is. To know the underlying ideas of neocons so he can understand their strengths and flaws. I don’t expect him to admit to being unfsmiliar with the term. I expect a candidate who is asking for my vote to have an understanding of the wars in which we are engaged and some framework of ideas on how he will deal with them. Mr. Cain has not demonstrated that he has any plan to deal with the world. We elected one POTUS who had no experience or even concept of statecraft, I don’t think, with the world falling apart, that we can afford to elect another.
What do you think about Jindal?
I think it's great to have a candidate who is honest for a change, and doesn't bluff you into thinking he already has an answer for everything. Cain doesn't have access to the info a President would have to have before making decisions. When decisions are made rashly, you get disasters like WW1, or the Iraq invasion. As a former business executive, he knows you have to have briefings and work together with others.
When Perry was asked about Pakistan, he wandered off into irrelevant trivia about how India was our friend, etc. All bluster and blowing smoke.
Because he doesn’t know that now, what does it do to change anything having to do with it today? Nothing. In the military, a commander who thinks he knows everything or worse professes to, is more dangerous to his troops than the enemy. Any officer is only as good as his senior NCO’s.
I earned my position in my trade not because I could memorize a book three semesters before I intended to take the class. In some cases I did not take the class but Cleped it instead. I categorized what I needed to remember to quickly find an answer to a question. I don’t consider myself as “smart” but instead rely on my “smart books” to catalog the knowledge I need when I need it. And yes, even at 3:00 AM.
Immigration is not one of Cain’s strong areas. He only rates a C- from NumbersUSA. Michele Bachmann is the champion there, with a B-. But people seem to have deserted Bachmann; Perry’s candidacy served its purpose for the Establishment in that regard: divide the conservative vote with a faux conservative candidate.
