Questions That Every Cain Supporter Needs to Answer Honestly

Please note: I’m wanting rational thought, not Perry-bashing. I know that you all aren’t heartless; prove you’re not headless as well.

1) Why will Herman Cain not endorse Rick Perry against Obama, even when Mitt Romney will endorse the GOP nominee?

2) Why can’t Herman Cain give a clear answer on anything (despite his no BS clarity?

Abortion (yes, I know he’s pro-life, but why not say it in the first place?)
– (non) sex scandal (why be so evasive)
Gitmo
2nd Amendment is a states’ issue

3) Why did Herman Cain play the race/victim card on Rick Perry?

AMANPOUR: On the front page of the Washington Post today, there’s a story about Rick Perry…

CAIN: Yes.

AMANPOUR: … and a hunting lodge that belonged to his family, bought in the 1980s. And on a rock apparently near the entrance there, there is a word that is a very ugly racial word, a slur.

CAIN: Yes.

AMANPOUR: And it’s been — it’s been painted over. But the report raises questions about whether this rock, this stone, with that word on it, was still on display even quite recently in the last several years. What is your reaction to that?

CAIN: My reaction is that is very insensitive. There are some words that do not basically inspire the kind of negativity like that particular word. And I know that you’re refraining from saying that word, so I’m going to say what the word was on the rock. The name of the place was called “N****head.” That is very insensitive.

And since Governor Perry has been going there for years to hunt, I think that it shows a lack of sensitivity for a long time of not taking that word off of that rock and renaming the place. It’s just basically a case of insensitivity.

AMANPOUR: It was painted over.

CAIN: Yes. It was painted over. But how long ago was it painted over? So I’m still saying that it is a sign of insensitivity.

Bonus question: What does Herman Cain have against Rick Perry in general?

4) If Herman Cain was a Democrat, and he said these things, what would your reaction be?
