Cain Defends Libya Answer


Talking about his answer to a question on Libya to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel earlier this week, Herman Cain said today in New Hampshire he was confident his supporters weren’t deterred by the uproar after the video was released.

“I know that’s a novel idea,” Cain said, according to Politico, of his decision to muse for a moment before answering the question about Libya. “And sometimes I have to stop and gather my thoughts.”

“The people that get on the Cain train, they don¹t get off because of that crap,” Cain added. “Who knows every detail of every country on the planet? Nobody!”

UPDATE:  According to the Associated Press, Cain also said, “We need a leader, not a reader.”
