Herman Cain is no stranger to making comments that rile up his opposing side, in fact he’s become quite masterful at it. Today’s installment finds the one-time presidential hopeful calling those who voted for President Obama ignorant.
The newly minted member of the Fox News Channel appeared on The O’Reilly Factor this week, revealing to Bill O’Reilly, the biggest issue plaguing America. “The biggest problem this country has is a deficiency of leadership,” he said. “We do not have a leader in the White House, we have a politician in the White House who is continuing his popularity campaign even though he’s already been reelected.”
Because the president has such a preoccupation with being liked, Cain blamed his alleged vanity for the debt crisis, and why the economy is “shrinking instead of growing.”
When pressed by O’Reilly to answer why so many people side with Obama, Cain replied that voters were brainwashed. “51 percent of the voters were misled enough to vote for him. We are that dumb. Now keep in mind, not everybody. He got 51 percent of the popular vote. We have a severe ignorance problem, with the people who are so mesmerized by his popularity that they’re not looking at the facts.
“Martin Luther King said 50 years ago in 1963 something that is so appropriate to today, ‘There is nothing more dangerous than severe ignorance.'”
This isn’t the first time that Obama supporters have been accused of blindly following his lead. Mitt Romney made similar comments about “47 percent” of Americans willing to vote for the president no matter what.
