Will Herman Cain place the troops under the sand?

Call it the Godfather’s foreign policy — besides, his head could use some company.

When Gregory then asked Cain whether he was a “neoconservative,” the presidential hopeful admitted he had no idea what Gregory was talking about.

“I’m not sure what you mean by neoconservative,” said Cain. “I am a conservative, yes. Neoconservative — labels sometimes will put you in a box. I’m very conservative.”

“But you’re familiar with the neoconservative movement?” asked Gregory.

“I’m not familiar with the neoconservative movement,” admitted Cain. “I’m familiar with the conservative movement. Let me define what I mean by the conservative movement — less government, less taxes, more individual responsibility.”

When asked a question about Afghanistan during a previous GOP debate, Cain said he would rely on  “the experts and their advice and their input.”

“I’m not privy to a lot of confidential information,” he said. “At this point, I don’t know all the facts.”

He has since clarified his answer: “9-9-9.”

  1. Neo-Con is a progressive / liberal term and is not used in conservative circles. Any talk about neo-cons is always coming from a left wing prospective. Obama has put our troops in two additional wars, but no complaints from HuffPo. Herman needs to brush up on foreign policy, but I’m glad he admitted he doesn’t know it all and isn’t privy to all the information. However, he wins the nomination he better learn quickly.

    We are now involved in 4-wars and all we get is grief, debt and loss of American life. Meanwhile China moves along like a cheshire cat snatching up opportunity along the way for more influence as the American dollar builds their military power. All American politicians should be required to study the rise and fall of England…. Perhaps Newt would make the best President of all the candidates – he knows of what the hell he speaks.
