Video of Herman Cain from local Alabama TV (clip) HERE
(HIT ARROW @ WAFF-TV WEBSITE STORY TO STREAM STORY).
I will say this, Herman Cain got heckled and boo-ed it seems by contingent of rather loud, rude Ron Paul supporters right when he was trying to give his Alabama speech. I just saw this separate clip of Cain handling these Paulbots last night. It was brilliant. He humiliated them publicly and the crowd burst forth with resounding applause and laughter. They were vanquished, embarrassed, and they shut up right away. Folks, it was the closest I have yet seen in Campaign 2012 to a dynamic Ronald Reagan 1980 New Hampshire "This is MY microphone, I paid for it" moment.
The guy knows how to point a finger, lower a voice and command respect when he is being dissed like that. Gotta see TV!!

Click on the cane.
I was there, in Huntsville, at the dinner last night. I didn’t see any Paulbots or hear heckling.
I’m going to give a write-up of my experiences this PM. Right now, I’m still in H’ville and it’s 4 hours to the house and then I’ll do my after-action report. I’m planning to start traveling w/in 30 minutes.
See my previous post as to location of this rabble rousing! ;-) Also, thanks in advance for your Huntsville report.
The clip to which you linked has no heckling at all.
I was sitting to Mr. Cain’s left and frankly, the Paulbots didn’t have much of a voice at all. It was a sold-out crowd of 500 people.
But what can you expect from T-town?
P.S. I have an audio tape from which I’ll be doing my report and I have pictures.
I watched the video....but where’s the heckling video?
Not in Huntsville (no heckling--i.e. the video on this thread above). I will see if I can find that separate Paulbot Tuscaloosa heckling and subsequent Cain smackdown tape.
I really like what he says about illegal immigration toward the end of that clip. Seal the borders, no amnesty, use the laws we have now for a path to citizenship, empower the states to enforce the law if the federal government won’t.
My only reply against this is, as president, he should use his office to require the federal government to enforce the laws.
I find it offensive that Republicans would show up at am event and heckle one of our own. I proudly support Herman Cain both here and financially; I would never consider showing up at an event and heckling Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, or any of the others even Mitt Romney.
The Paul-acorns don’t fall far from the tree!
That’s because you are a good steward of your resources (time, energy, money) and direct them where they will have optimal effect.
Totally agree. I wouldn’t even heckle Obama if he was giving a speech...and there’s a guy who is is crying out to be heckled. I would have to mutter under my breath “liar” and shake my head of few time though.
Thing is, they are not Rebublicans. They are either Libertarians, OR they are Democrats trying to influence the race and get involved in cross over states and cause a ruckus and Ron Paul is their vehicle. What a bunch of loons. Very poor manners. Cain rose above it beautifully. He will get this in the General Election by Code Pink types no doubt. He’s got the “stuff” to counter it, though!!
Can you ping me when you post your report and pics? Thanks!
Must see teevee clip. See post #13 for the correct clip.
You are most likely correct... I personally know and work on the job with a few rabid Ron Paul supporters. I do not know if they are representative of the rest of the group. My friends call themselves Conservative Republicans but they act and talk more like Occupy Wall Street people much of the time.
Didn’t even know he was in town last night. We were at the hockey game in downtown Huntsville. As we were driving by the hotel near the Space & Rocket Center, we saw some idiot protesters who we thought were protesting the visit by AZ Gov. Jan Brewer who was speaking to the Women’s Republican club meeting.
Safe travel - there’s some wicked weather out there!
Meh. Humilitating Paulbots is like shooting fish in a barrel.
Herman Cain makes me proud to be an American - I just can't explain why...it just IS and I thank God for that wonderful connection.
I like your tagline!
Thanks. I got it from a FReeper some time ago.
Bump to watch later.
I wonder if Rand Paul has ever tried to talk some sense into his father, Ron. Talk about your night and day...thank God Rand inherited his genes from his mother.
Jem, I would appreciate a ping when you post your Cain report. Thanks.
I think those that pose as Paul supporters are just Democrat pranksters. There’s something about Paul that has always bothered me, despite so many reasons that I should like him. Something phony and narcissistic and predatory—
