I’m not selling Cain Kool-Aide. I do support Cain. But: if it is the intent to say that Cain was caught on this answer in some kind of fog, I disagree. Watch the thing. He takes his time. He will not be suckered into snap answers on the Libya question. Let’s all go the first sources, please.

the video was painful to watch, but he did get the correct answer surmised. Who exactly was the Opposition and should we be supporting them? At the same time how to deal with Ghadaffi? Yes, it’s complicated and complex than just a simple yes or not answer.

Wow, people are eviscerating him both on this post and on Hotair. I saw it four times and honestly cannot see what the big deal is. it looks to me like a sit down conversation where ideas and comments are not framed in 30 second soundbites. Does he have a full grasp of all the issues? Well Romney does and no one wants him. People are quick to judge one's ability to provide the answer that will dovetail with their ideas and emotions. When one doe not get the answer desired. Burn him at the stake! Herman Cain is a citizen politician and he is not as polished and slippery with his mouth like the rest of them are.

People have got to chill!!

And his Ford-esque flub when he stated China was a threat because it was trying to acquire nuclear weapons?

I agree. He answers like a business guy. He wants to gather the facts, and avoid shooting from the hip with bumper-sticker absolutes. When he answered the question about trading a Taliban-captured US soldier for Khalid Sheik Muhammed, he started out by expressing it would be a bad idea, but as he began to consider the universe of possible approaches, he allowed that under some circumstances, he could see doing it.

Which is the correct answer.
