“I did not insult the intelligence of all black Americans,” the new GOP frontrunner told MSNBC. “I insulted the attitude of those that will not consider an alternate idea.” He also said black voters “did not consider my statement insulting because a lot of them are thinking for themselves.”
Previously, the Republican presidential candidate said African-Americans voters have been “brainwashed” into voting for Democrats by “not even considering a conservative point of view.”
That comment didn’t sit well with the African American community. Though Cain played down the comment and hit back.
“Now, if they want to talk about insulting, they need to look at the president when he talks to the Congressional Black Caucus and insulted black people, in my opinion, by telling them to take off their slippers and put on their marching boots when he has had nothing but failed policies,” said Cain.
Boy this guy likes talking in circles!
And in related news, Herman Cain supporters have been moanin’and groanin’ about his role as CEO of Godfather’s Pizza overshadowing his many other accomplishments, such as being past chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and the chairman of the National Commission of Economic Growth and Tax Reform, as well as hosting his own talk radio show.
We don’t care what jobs held, he’s still full of baloney!!!
