Herman Cain Stumped Several Times During Lincoln-Douglas Style Debate Last Night

From the Lincoln-Douglas style debate (almost) last nighth on C-SPAN, between Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich at The Woodlands, Texas, here is Cain getting stumped by a question on Medicare, which he started to try and answer, and then threw it over to Gingrich to go first. Cain actually did this several times during the “debate”.

Wild Thing's comment......

Newt clearly won the debate hands down. Herman Cain is clueless, Newt showed him who was the teacher and who was the student, and if Cain wasn't letting Newt go first he was using Rick Perry's lines from Rick's campaigns speech!!!!

Cain is winging his way through everything, He is incapable of running this country. Cain is making the tea party look like a joke for everything they stand for and I will go so far as to say the GOP ( conservatives in the party) as well.

I am sorry to be so tuff about this but there has got to be some reality, this is about our country and it's survival. I have seen Cain use lines from Perry before but this is getting more and more obvious.

There are some truly wonderful people supporting Cain , but for me there is just no comparison between Cain vs. Newt ( Newt with his vast knowledge ) or Cain vs. Perry ( Perry tremendous experience and succss as a leader).

PLEASE understand non my opinion is personal it is political. I have been for Perry from the start, I was thrilled when he got in the race. I have tried to be as fair as possible posting about others but also keeping honest about what I felt about each one. I love you all and appreciate your passion for the person you are supporting. But have to be honest in my post because my blog is a part of who I am.

To Herman Cain I would say, I am sorry but lingos, bumper sticker speak and ad jingles have their place but one does need to speak in substance sometimes especially if that person wants to hold the highest office in the land and the most powerful office in the world. And to get many of your best lines from a candidate you despise has been truly disgusting and shameful to do.

During the debate Newt gave Perry credit thank you Newt. Perry has already reduced medical costs in Texas with Tort Reform and successfully tested a privatized SS system in Galveston which he thinks everyone should be able to implement. Cain dismissed this fact of what Perry has done that would have had referrence to the question they were asked.

Just for information in case you want it this is about Newt. I am not familar with the blog. It is a Sarah Palin blog I think from the photos in the sidebar.

Here is the link with information about Newt's record and things he has done one might want to think about.

NONE of the candidates are perfect. And we are vetting the heck out of them all. hahaa In my gut I am feeling like it will all work out OK I pray so anyway this election is so important. .

Newt's the smartest guy in the room, no doubt about it; have been a huge fan for a LONG time. However, the presidency is about cheerleading and rallying a nation to a cause. The people are going to have to be spoon-fed some pretty bitter medicine, if we're going to get out from under the yoke of government. In this capacity, Herman Cain is the best of the bunch. His ability to speak, backed by Newt's policy proposals and knowledge, will get us where we need to be. That's why I support a Cain / Gingrich ticket for 2012.

I support Gov. Perry for President. It is nice to read a blog that actually is positive using his record as proof. Hard to understand the "conservative" blogs that are so negative towards him. A President with strong military and political experience is a winning situation.

I needed to be reminded of just how badly flawed Newt Gingrich's moral character is. His articulation is unequaled. His loyalty to a political philosophy is victim to his greed and narcissism. He would constantly disappoint his constituancy.

Perry is my favorite. Cain, like Michele Bachmann is self destructing. The way things stand now, I don't see anyone beating Romney, unless he destructs somehow. Romney will have the 25% GOP/RNC establishment voters plus the crossover Dems. The too many conservatives will divide the conservative vote. Sure hope I am wrong.

You might want to read Rush’s Friday transcript. It will upset a lot of Republicans to say the least. And if anyone thought Cain was a flake it would be Rush..Who are considered to be 2 of the most true conservative Presidents in the last 100 years, the optimum words being “Most True” Teddy Roosevelt
and Harry Truman…

Thank you too for sharing Gator.

Truman is the most conservative Democrat since the nineteenth century. Teddy Roosevelt dpes not qualify even as a moderate. He was a hard core liberal who did more violence to the US Constitution than any Republican since Lincoln who had war to deal with and before Nixon.
I don't know why so many Republican Party members do not read.

1) The Constitution requirs the President and the VP to be from different States. Cain or Gingrich outstanding but Cain and Gingrich is not possible.
2) By record Perry is the best Governor in hard times now.
3) Gingrich turned in the ninties a two trillion Debt into a two trillion Surpplus and if the Democrats had not gotten rid of him the debt would have been paid off two years ago. Gripe about his failure to support fellow conservativea but he has never failed the conservative principles.
4) Romney was 47th of the fifty state Governors while he was in office and is behind Ed King, a Democrat, as Massachusetts best Governor of the last fifty years.
5) We have a wealth of candidates even Ron Paul is rational about the econmic problems.
