Except this past weekend, that's exactly what he did. He was asked a question about something he didn't know anything about and so he tried [badly] to fake it and talk about it as though he did know what he was talking about."The thing that you're going to learn about Herman Cain, if he doesn't know something, he's not going to try and fake it or give an answer that he doesn't know what he's talking about." ~ Herman Cain
I'm not saying that disqualifies him, if anything it means he's adapting well to being a politician since they all lie.

Under most conditions, there is absolutely nothing wrong with not knowing something -- no one knows everything, but in light of it being a question on Israel/Palestinian issues and he was on that show criticizing Obama over Obama's position on Israel/Palestinian issues.
But then to say he doesn't fake it when he doesn't know something after he was practically begging Wallace to clue him in on what the Right of Return is so that he could fake an answer is ouch #2.
