Being tired and addressing complexity easily explains any of it, the complexity aspect most of all. People are so dumbed down, and media controllers are so stupidly brutal, that people cannot even recognize a considered answer anymore. To the contrary, everyone judges each other on the ease in which talking points are spit out, and the facility with which follow-up questions are avoided, and the brazenness in which patent lies are thrust forward, defying the listener to call the lie what it is.
And I'm saying this not particularly liking Cain. His 999 really soured me on him. But fair's fair - the man considers his answers from multiple real-world contextual points, and its refreshing to see. That it rattles the zombies is a good thing.
Cain on Lybia:
Nein Nein Nein
I follow foreign affairs very closely, and listened very carefully to Cain’s response to the hit-questions. I thought he did well to answer as he did, considering that he did not have enough information from CIA, NSA, all the other letter bunches.
When one is asked to make a yes/no answer without the primary info, one can only say that there isn’t enough info to give a meaningful answer.
I credit him for being smart enough to know what he doesn’t know, and not trying to make points one way or the other.
If anything, this interview increased my confidence in him, because he knows what he doesn’t know about the mess the middle-east is, and will not go for an easy sound-bite.
