Skip to comments.Cainís campaign on Libya gaffe: He had four hours of sleep last night and was taken out of context
Posted on 11/14/2011 8:32:53 PM PST by Bigtigermike
The video is being taken out of context, said spokesman JD Gordon. He was taking questions for about 30 to 40 minutes on four hours of sleep. He didnt say anything wrong or in accurate; it just took him a while to recall the specifics of Libya.
Gordon added, It just took him a while to gain his bearings.
The clip was posted unedited by the Journal-Sentinel so I dont know what context he thinks was missing. Is there some context that would explain why he needed the editorial board to remind him whether Obama is pro- or anti-Qaddafi? Because Im thinking pretty much every one of our readers could nail that detail even on three hours sleep.
According to Andrew Rafferty of NBC News, When I asked Cain if todays Libya gaffe builds on idea he doesnt have in depth knowledge of foreign policy, he simply said, 999. Not a joke.
I guess well be okay as long as President Cain never gets a phone call at 3 a.m. The irony of todays supergaffe is that I think itll do him much less harm among primary voters generally than the harassment charges have, even though his hair-raising vagueness on key foreign-policy details is much more certain than whether he did anything to his accusers. Only political junkies will see the Libya clip; thanks to Gloria Allred, everyones seen the Bialek presser. ABCs out with a new poll tonight, in fact, showing Cains favorable rating now stands at 29/44, a steep drop from last months rating of 31/27. Thats a poll of adults, not of voters, but dont forget that Rasmussen also found his favorables underwater at 37/51 in a poll of likely voters last week. I dont know how he turns that around

Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN

Click on the cane, (Go Cain.)
sorry Drew. That was Cain's way of saying "KMA".
Cains fallback answer to just about everything: “I was taken out of context.”
Cain on Lybia:
Nein Nein Nein
Obama on Healthcare
I think he won in 2008
You’re going to end up giving us either Newt or worst case Mittens as our candidate!
Get squared away and fast or you are going to be a sorry footnote on the 2012 election.
Completely untrue. Mr. Cain was thoughtful, as usual, and there were one tiny pause so he could form his sentence best for people to understand his point. Nonstop chattering, like a broken record, has never been his style. He was not in the least uncomfortable with his answers, sleep or no sleep.
The problem with Cain is not that he would make bad decisions as POTUS. Any president will have to rely on his advisers - he couldn’t possibly keep all the details of every issue in RAM - not even Newt. I think Cain would be more than able to properly assess those opinions and options, and make decisions as well as anyone else.
The problem is, with this kind of stumbling and inability to articulate, he will not be able to defeat Obama. He is proving to be not electable.
Can you blame im with what he has had to put up with the raunchy MSM?
But the odd thing is that his campaign is saying this....
There’s no implosion. Cain can win.
What the Perry/Newtbots fail to understand is that Herman still maintains one quality their guys don’t: TRUST
Honestly, it doesn’t bother me as much when Herman screws up, because he’s smart enough to LISTEN to the TEA PARTY and CONVSERVATIVES and realize when he’s screwed up. I know when he’s in the WH, someone will actually take the time to LISTEN to US and actually ACT in a way that benefits US.
Trust is something hard to earn and easily lost. Newt lost it a long time ago. Perry lost his awhile back as well. Get over it. People do not support a candidate they don’t TRUST. I TRUST Herman Cain and will continue to do so until he gives reason to me to believe otherwise.
People make mistakes and have freeze-ups. I didn’t think Perry’s moment of forgetfulness was anything that mattered, and I don’t think this matters. It’s just one more way to shoot at Cain.
That's because the essence of the RINO/Rat attack on him is... to take him out of context.
So what if he only got 4 hours sleep in the White House.
Or will he not answer the phone at 3AM?
