Herman Cain Can’t Be Bothered With “Details”

Herman Cain has explained that he couldn’t be bothered by remembering all the women he has harassed, or even with whom he spent the evening. After his total failure to remember anything about the United States’ involvement in the conflict in Libya, Cain asked indignantly:

“Who knows every detail of every country of every situation on the planet? Nobody! A leader is supposed to make sure we work on the right problems, we’re assigned the right priorities. Surround yourself with good people, put together plans and lead. We’ve got plenty of experts, and a leader knows how to use those experts. We need a leader, not a reader.”

In addition to not being bothered with the details of the women he has harassed, or the “squirmishes” in Libya, it seems Herman Cain also refuses to be bothered with the details of his schedule with the press. Cain himself added a new type of detail to the long list of “details” which seem to be more than Herman can handle. Thursday morning he blew off a scheduled meeting with the publisher, editorial page director and reporters at the Union Leader, the state’s largest and most influential newspaper. 

Colin Powell, one of the most respected Republicans in the country said:

“Never neglect details. When everyone’s mind is dulled or distracted the leader must be doubly vigilant.”

I bet Colin Powell won’t be voting for Herman Cain in the primary.

  1. Powell and 99.9% of registered Republicans won’t be voting for Cain. Sorry, Herbie, but the President must be a reader and a leader. We know you just got into this to ‘sell books,’ like Newt, but gee, you could surround yourself with some people who DO read and can at least talk to you about major issues. It isn’t as if Libya was some secret operation that lasted three days. If Libya isn’t important enough for you to follow, it begs the question: what would be important enough for the pizza man to spend time in his busy schedule learning about before he makes a decision? I know: doing the personal interviews of all females wanting to work in the White House (not that there would be any.)


  2. If Cain wants to be a President who surrounds himself with experts, he’s off to a bad start with Mark Block as his campaign manager. His so-called expert campaign manager was barred from handling any campaign finances for 3 years due to his mishandling of money. This is Cain’s first decision in his run for President, proving he has no clue what he’s doing. When various Republican groups in states throughout the nation have tried to get info from the Cain campaign, they’re either ignored or rebuffed. What a leader-NOT!


  3. Guys…you all seem to be forgetting. GOD told Cain to run and lest we forget….he IS the self proclaimed modern day Moses! Who needs details when you have all that going on? 🙂


  4. The same people who denigrate our president’s many professional and educational accomplishment by calling them the result of “affirmative action” give Cain a pass with all of his proven ignorance on a variety of subjects. It’s an utterly sickening spectacle to see just how the GOP has devolved into a party that tolerates, and even embraces, homegrown ignorance and stupidity. The worst part is that even European conservatives laugh at the right in the United States. They have become an international joke.
