Herman Cain says the problem with America isn’t any one single issue, but that stupid people are allowed to cast a vote at the ballot box. As a matter of fact, Herman Cain says he wishes stupid people would stop voting altogether since they are “ruining America.”
During a speech at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference on Friday, Cain noted that only 58 percent of registered voters actually voted in the last presidential election. Cain then asked, “What about the 42% that stay at home?”
“I have even heard people say, ‘Well, I don’t vote because I don’t know what’s going on, and I say ‘good!’” he continued. “Stupid people are ruining America and I’m glad some of a them stay home … ..Those of us that are informed have to out-vote the stupid people.”
Cain concluded that “you have got to become ambassadors of intelligence, ambassadors of information. So number one, stay informed!”
In 2011, Cain had his own run in with stupid when, during an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, he rambled incoherently about President Obama’s handling of Libya.
At one point during the interview, Cain looked to his interviewers for help, asking, “OK, Libya. President Obama supported the uprising, correct?”
When asked if he agreed with Obama’s support for the rebels against Muammar Gaddafi, Cain said: “I do not agree with the way he handled it, for the following reason.” After a long and awkward pause, Cain finished: “Uh, nope, that’s, that’s a different one. … see, I got to go back, see. Got all this stuff twirling around in my head.”
