Skip to comments.Video: Herman Cain Schools Anti-American College Hecklers

Former presidential candidate and successful CEO Herman Cain participated in a jobs forum at the University of Michigan last week. During his presentation, Cain told several hundred students that they'll enjoy at least one significant advantage when the enter the job market, triggering an interesting response from a handful of hecklers:
Cain: "This is the greatest country in the world."
Students: "Not," "It's not!"
The rest of the audience gasped, booed, and a few chanted "U-S-A." Cain then launched into an epic impromptu monologue about the greatness of America -- her liberties, her prosperity, her military strength, and her opportunities -- bringing the crowd to its feet. Pure awesome:
"If this is not the greatest country in the world, leave!"
For more data and perspective on America's singular exceptionalism on the landscape of world history, read this, this, this and this. It's also interesting to note which end of our domestic political spectrum spends the most energy informing their fellow Americans that our nation really isn't all that great: Entitled undergraduates (see above), the ranting, fictional "news" anchors, as imagined by Hollywood, sanctimonious blowhards and fawning Sinophiles at the New York Times, and, at times, even the President of the United States. I can think of no more eloquent recent paean to America's exceptional greatness than Condoleezza Rice's address at the Republican National Convention (17:25 for a highlight):
He was my favorite. Thanks for posting.
He was my first choice. Unfortunately he was forced by the 0bama Media to drop out before the Primaries even started. I hope Mitt Romney will appoint him as secretary of treasury
Tells it like it is, don’t he!!
Herman’s zipper problem was not the result of the media.
I think we may see some very interesting and inspiring appointments from President Romney.
Herman Cain is da man!!! Allen West is da man!!! Mia Love is da woman!!! Not the Kenyan, Muslim, Slavemaster & Slave Seller!!! Black folks, wake up!!! You done been had by Obama and his hate America ilk!!! Being adrift at sea is no way to go through life!!! Sad!!!
When her son was about 6 months old she bought a home in his name.
That's why folks couldn't pin down where she lived. However, you just about have to be a foreign agent to get into the old trick of buying a piece of property in your infant's name in Virginia.
Actually, that's how a foreign power can develop very quiet, almost invisible sleeper cells in this country ~ or any other with unrestricted ownership of property by private individuals.
At some point someone must have realized that Axelrod's ties went much deeper than just into the world of Chicagoland hookers ~ he has his own Castro connections as well as links to the old USSR Communist party ~ and they still have some bucks around.
Someone pulled Mr. Cain out of the way of a speeding locomotive that just didn't want another blackman in their way. They tossed some really expensive secret agents at him in fact ~ that's how much they wanted to get rid of him. There's no doubt they were prepared to toss more than that at him if they wished.
It was the result of a quite elaborate former Soviet sleeper cell ~ working with Axelrod.
Cain gave them the material to destroy his pretensions. His candidacy was ludicrous in any case.
I know the election of The Disaster lowered the bar but shouldn’t one show he can be elected to SOME office before running for the top job in the land? Talk about effrontery.
“He was my first choice.”
Mine too. But, regardless of the bimbos, it just didn’t seem that he’d done his homework. Not for president - you MUST do your homework, as our stinky governor here in Texas also learned (although, in his case, he simply doesn’t have the mental capacity for that job).
When I shop at my local Trader Joe’s, you can choose between brown paper and plastic shopping bags. I always choose plastic. If the cashier looks like a hippie Lefty, and they give me a look when I ask for plastic, I just say “God, guns, guts, and plastic make America great”.
Not just the O media... there were plenty on this very sight who as soon as they heard the rumors started saying terrible things about Mr. Cain.
Don’t you find it interesting that after all was said and done that only one so called accuser came forward and she had an axe to grind?
Mr. Cain was my first choice as well
he didn’t have a zipper problem he had folks like you jumping to unproven conclusions
what material? look I am not going to rehash all this again but I would like to point out that the conservatives who are bitching mightily on this sight because they don’t like Romney deserted Cain based on NO facts and a false allegation by a woman who knows Axelrod and had an axe to grind.
and by the way... if the criteria for holding office is having been previously elected then we can forget about ever getting rid of crony capitalism.
I don’t know how old you are but your logic is consistent with teen aged wisdom
effrontery indeed check your own motives.
He sure doesn’t need a steenking teleprompter or a focus group to tell him what to say.
Yea, like Washington, and Jefferson, and Lincoln, and Roosevelt, and...
At the Fort Campbell Commissary they also ask if I want Paper or plastic. I don’t mind paper but they are hard to carry. Most the times I have my own bags, but If I forget to bring them I just say plastic, though I hate plastic bags
