Here we have the GOP's front runner, depending on which poll you look at, and he can't even answer a very simple question on Libya..LIBYA!
In this interview, Herman Cain is asked a relatively simple question -- at least, to the extent that Republicans have a set of talking points on this -- about Libya and the President's handling of it. We've all heard the Luntz talking points about "leading from behind", letting Al Qaeda take over the rebellion, and so on. I could recite them in answer to a question like this without thinking too much about it. This is why Republicans win media battles. They adopt a single set of talking points and don't deviate from them.
Well, except for Herman Cain, who seems to even have trouble pulling up the right set of data points when asked the question. He hesitates, hesitates again, repeats what he thinks are the complaints about how the President handled Libya, and ultimately just tries to craft a non-answer to a simple question.
After his initial hem-haw session, he is pressed to articulate specific differences between the President's decisions on Libya and what he would do, if elected. In high-school BS essay 101 technique speak, he launches into the classic non-answer about gathering opinions and then making a decision. Oh, yes. Consensus building. That's what they call it.
When President Obama wins his second term, you know who he needs to thank? The GOP. They are the ones who have put their stocks in this laughing stock of a candidate and field. They were not able to produce an actual, viable candidate to take on an incumbent in the middle of one of the worst economic periods in the history of this country. Say what you want about the Democratic Party, but the Republican Party is much, much worse off!
