When the election season kicked off, I gave every Republican candidate the benefit of the doubt. I’ve since eliminated all but 2 of them – and Herman Cain has joined that fate.
Cain, who has remained neck-and-neck with Mitt Romney in recent weeks, was second on my list of Republicans early on. However, as I dug deeper, I realized that this man is another dose of what we’ve had for far too long.
Cain’s latest blunder came in an interview with Bill O’Reilly. He essentially said that putting American warships in the Persian Gulf would not be an act of provocation against Iran and that he’d be OK with a shooting war with them. Of course, he’ll be flexing his muscles from another continent should that ever take place.
If someone showed up to my home loaded with weapons after attacking a few of my neighbors, I think I’d feel provoked. We cannot afford Cain’s views on foreign policy – financially or in lives.
