Skip to comments.Cain: I Should've Defended Gay Soldier From Boos at Debate
Posted on 10/19/2011 1:54:41 PM PDT by katiedidit1
WASHINGTON -- Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Sunday that he should not have stayed silent after the audience at a GOP debate booed a gay soldier serving in Iraq.
The Georgia businessman told ABC's "This Week" that it would have been "appropriate" for him to have defended the soldier. None of the candidates on stage at the Sept. 22 forum responded to the boos.
"In retrospect, because of the controversy it has created and because of the different interpretations that it could have had, yes, that probably -- that would have been appropriate," Cain said, when asked if he should have asked the audience to respect the soldier.

Beasley...yes, but did they donate money? did Cain take it...would you take money from them?
Your comment made me think about this story...
How embarrassing, eh?
No, not just TARP, Fed, and all of it. By the looks of your posting history, you have a pretty long history of bashing Cain. Including lying about some of his stances, like Affirmative Action.
Herman Cains own article in 2004:
Affirmative Action is a Negative Step
The only candidate against TARP was Santorum. Is that your guy?
no lies but lots of questions...you want everyone to shut up and vote for your candidate without doing any research...absurd. I also made some negative posts about Bachmann voting for ethanol subsidies...go ahead and turn your attack from discussing the issues, candidates and get personal...it wont phase me or stop me. You can google one site but there are others that counter you on AA and Cain saying only if a minority is discriminated against should the govt step in...ok? what about if anyone is discriminated against? white or black or yellow? so go back on the train and don’t expect me to follow your candidate without a full vet...period
We ALL know they were booing the question. When is someone going to backtrack because they didn't defend a Christian?---don't hold your breath unless you look good in blue.
someones been missing lately check your mail
why did Rainbow Push endorse him? I still want to know..if you view that as a smear you are the one with a problem...I dont vote blind
I think he somewhat courted the black vote in 2004.
“ Cain made the case that the entitlement program was inherently biased against African Americans.
“If that’s going to be a transfer from me to white people,” Cain said of his own payments into the Social Security trust fund, “can’t I at least give it to white people I like?”
He also did some commercials with Team America PAC in 2006? 2008? trying to attract blacks to the republican party.
No, I don’t expect anyone to shut up. And I encourage people to search for truth. I have posted links to things going way back so people could vet Cain.
The questions you keep raising have been answered hundreds of times on FR. You have been answered on many of the same questions over and over.
Like today, I post a response and you accuse me of silencing the lambs.
So, what all that tells me that you don’t really want to know the truth. And that’s fine, whatever, but let’s not pretend that you are on some quest to enlighten everyone.
Have a nice day.
Look, I am really not elated with any of the candidates and wish we would have had Demint running...he would have been my first choice. I like Rubio and all have some issues...but sheeeeeeeeeeeeesh the choices we have disappoint me. That being said...whoever wins the gop nod...will have my vote. Perry on illegals...not good, Romneycare..not good, Paul...should I go there? Newt..I do like the best but COULD he overcome the baggage...Bachmann...no for reasons I stated before...the greenie guys OUT ...okay? just looking for the best from what we have to pick from.
Well, I suppose it depends....at some point it would great for Cain to make inroads to the black community. I am shocked that the black community is still voting Rat 95% when the Rats have been the biggest supporters of illegal immigration, sanctuary cities, welfare for the illegals to the tune of 30 million mexicans who have flooded the border and taken black jobs! No wonder the black unemployment is 50% among teens and early 20's. The illegals took all their jobs! Maybe Cain can be the one to make that connection for them. If the black community ever wants to work again that is....
Don’t worry...I will have a great day and I will keep asking questions but excuse me if I have to rely on more than just you as my source.
“for they know he abhors the idea of ‘homosexual’ marriage”
So does Obama, officially.
and I hope you are right...but have found black conservatives to be major targets of the leftwing..Clarance Thomas, Condi Rice, LTC West and now Cain. He seems to have strong connections in Georgia as you said ..through the church.
Thx Netizen...we must be hitting different threads lately! Hope all is well with you.
Freepers who've never backed Cain will say he's a sell-out.
Freepers who've never backed Cain, but can't be honest about that will say "I used to be for Cain, but...".
he is also against a constitutional amendment to protect marriage. Instead he ignores full faith and credit and gives “the states should...” rino double talk.
I always knew that Obama was a homosexualist—if not a closet homosexual. He has no morals, whatsoever—as all Marxists. I knew he was lying when he was in Rev. Wright’s Marxist church for 20 years and mentored only by Communists and pedophiles who probably sodomized him when he was a boy. Larry Sinclair is probably correct and not lying. All the Washington DC cartel probably frequent bath houses.
I can’t speak for what is in Cain’s heart. My gut feeling, though, when I saw him being grilled about the homosexual agenda the very first time—he condemned it outright, but “had” to recant. I’ve seen the homosexual mafia take down numerous people....latest was Bachmann and her husband. Cain will NOT attack them head on until he is in power. He is too smart for that. You have to pick your fights and the PC police will take you down if you give them an inch.
