    JUDY WOODRUFF: Do you view China as a potential military threat to the United States? HERMAN CAIN: I do view China as a potential military threat to the United States... we already have superiority in terms of our military capability, and I plan to get away from making cutting our defense a priority and make investing in our military capability a priority, going back to my statement: peace through strength and clarity. So yes they're a military threat. They've indicated that they're trying to develop nuclear capability and they want to develop more aircraft carriers like we have. So yes, we have to consider them a military threat.

    Herman Cain is apparently unaware that China conducted its first test of a nuclear device on October 16th... 1964.

    Heres an article about it from forbes...in case you think its a liberal thang...lol....hey not to worry far righters..CAIN MAKES A HELLA PIZZA....

    "Develop" could be taken to mean "improve", which could be from a position of already having nuclear. The guy's a clueless opportunist (oxymoron I know), I think he can fudge on this one, the 999 to 909 episode was somewhat more amusing to watch.

    Thread is shockingly devoid of conservatives. Can you IMAGINE what they would say if this had come out of Obama's mouth?

    The really tough question, as it would take much thought and research, would be "Herman Cain has great command of the ______________ issue"
    Did you read what he said about china and nukes? Oh dear god this guy is LEADING on the right. LEADING! Damn.
    Obama is guaranteed a win in 2012. If you dont agree with me, name who will beat him and why.

    Cain has peaked, Perry has flopped, the spotlight will turn to Romney now as the front runner. He has the money and the GOP establishment behind him.

    Re: GOP Presidential candidate Herman Cain unaware China has nukes

    My question is - How come Woodruff didn't correct him? Did or didn't she know that China has had nukes for almost 50 years? Was she paying attention to his answers? Was she distracted?


    Or was it plain ol' 'LIBRUHL MEDIA' bias and she decided to let it slide?

    Running for President is no picnic.

    It's a 24/7 cycle of **** where every single thing you say, can be turned into a sound bite and repeated 10 billion times ad nasuaum.

    In this case, I imagine Cain mixed up North Korea and China in that moment.

    And many in here are quite right, if it had been Obama many conservatives would have a field day.

    But at the end of the day, there's better reasons to oppose Cain then this and the alleged allegations.

    Something far more important and a gaping hole that in a General Election he could never actually defend.

    His 9-9-9 plan sucks balls.

    I dunno, when these things happen it's my perception that it's proper form to just let these things slide. For instance, in the Presidential VP debates in 2008, Sarah Palin couldn't get General McKiernan's name right (obviously she had been coached but couldn't remember how to pronounce it). If I were Biden I would've pounced on it, but he let it go. Same thing when both McCain and Obama mistakenly referred to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as the "Republican Guard" (confusing them with the Iraqi Republican Guard). The moderators could've called them out for it, but didn't. These things happen all the time, usually the other people in the room just let it go.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    If he were a serious Presidential candidate, you'd think he'd actually research the things he's supposed to talk about before he talks about them. I have no idea what's going on in that campaign war room, but it's not looking pretty.

    He isn't, but he is "running seriously," if you get what I mean. What I can't believe is that every election you have folks out there seriously running for President (running a legitimate campaign, fundraising) but clearly don't know what the hell they're talking about.

    Herman Cain's credibility allegedly stems from his business experience, but he comes up with a tax plan that is so full of crap that folks on both sides are bashing it, and the only defense he can come up with is "you're wrong" or "check my website." I don't get why people do this.

    And then you also have his lack of foreign policy knowledge (let's give him a pass on the China nuke thing and assume it was a gaffe, you still have other examples of his foreign policy ignorance), clearly issues that he has not researched carefully, but yet he and his supporters somehow think that he belongs in the White House.

    Shouldn't the media just report what the candidate said? Seems to me to be more unbiased to just let them hang themselves.
