Yep, already posted and the closest thing to it that he's done. A stand point that I think is retarded...IE respecting birthers in any way....but he also clearly states:
"it's just not an issue that I have studied enough to have a view one way or the other."
At best Cain was a guy who had no real opinion on the birther issue and didn't really look into it much and wanted to avoid angering possible constituents while at the same time keeping himself separated from it. Cain's an unskilled and unpracticed politician, he's not a birther.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
I was willing to give him a chance til I found out his real views on abortion and gay rights
I will say I like some of the ideas on his 999 plan though.
Oh and when I saw him saying that if you are poor and jobless that it is your own fault and not the fault of the banks? It made me sick. This man is out of touch with the real folks.

Really Gill, no one embraces abortion. Even those who are pro-choice, see abortion as a route of last resort. And yes, there are a lot of fiscal conservatives that are also pro-choice and pro gay marriage. Are you sure you are not confusing the term conservative with evangelical?

"He's not off base," Cain said then of Donald Trump's effort to get Obama to release his birth certificate. "Just like the people who have been challenging his place of birth for the past couple of years. It's just not an issue that I have studied enough to have a view one way or the other. ... I respect people who believe that he should prove his citizenship, that he should prove that he was born in the United States of America, and that's fine. If I were president, and someone would challenge me on that, I'd produce my birth certificate. End of discussion. . . . But I quite frankly haven't looked at all the facts to have an opinion on that."
