"It was a joke," Cain said emphatically. "I apologize if I offended anyone. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea culpa."

And even though he said repeatedly, that will be the end of the matter.
That’s the way it is for Mr Cain.
Non-issue. What counts is what he first said. And he made it MORE THAN CLEAR that he was not about to coddle to Illegals.
We know where his ‘heart’ is...
Yes, he said repeatedly he would kill them.
I hope it won't offend anyone if I point out that Cain refused to back down on favoring an electric fence. He was only "joking" in saying the voltage should be lethal.
I think it's Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
But, if I were the president, I'd have our military armed and with orders to shoot anyone coming over our borders. I'd give the morons a one (1) week notice on every media station in the US and then shoot.. . . shoot dead . . . I'd be damned if I'd give Miranda warnings and other crap . . . shoot to kill.
He apologized to the Muslim Brotherhood back in July...
“Yes, he said repeatedly he would kill them.”
So. I’m in Texas, I can do the same if they come on my property and break the law.
Really? Cain said he’d go thru Mexico killing people? He’s going to grab them and throw them on top of an electrified fence?
“He apologized to the Muslim Brotherhood back in July...”
Yep, and just like on Illegals, he told us where his ‘heart’ is in dealing with Islam.
(...and people wonder why he’s taking the lead now)
It is a good thing he does not shoot from the lip.
Right,.....We all know how those double standards work out.
“Free Passes! Come get yer Free Passes! Free Passes for Herman Cain!
I thought he was joking about the fence being electric but was serious about there being a fence. But now you say he was serious about an electrified fence but just joking on it being lethal. Clear as mud.
His heart seem to flip flop like his gums.
Now the question is. Will those folks who took offense to Rick Perry's "heartless" remark, stop holding a grudge and accept his apology?
I’m unclear. Does he want to kill illegals or not?
I gather you thought Reagan should have called it “The Mistaken Empire”...and NEVER have joked about the bombing being about to begin!
That’s live saying its not my fault you got in the way of the bullet.
“Thats live saying its not my fault you got in the way of the bullet.”
If you are coming thru the window of my home, that’s about right!
“His heart seem to flip flop like his gums.”
No, I always look at the FIRST comment as to where he truly stands - and so do others, as in the ‘heartless’ episode, followed by immediate collapse, of yours truly.
If people think that Cain’s supporters are going to pack up when the next round of polling hits, they’re badly mistaken.
