    How critical is it? Hmmmm? You won't vote for him because he didn't know that?

    So what? He knows now. Besides, he was always aware of the issue it describes, in all probability. I appreciated his honesty. I can trust someone like that. Obama would have lied. Cain told the truth.

    ...Well considering it's a commonly used term in a perennial foreign affairs issue faced by the United States, I'd say it's very critical. At this point, I would not vote for him due to a plethora of reasons, but that particular gaffe doesn't help.

    Barack Obama would not have needed to lie, because Barack Obama would have known what "right of return" was. And I, too, appreciate his honesty. Just not his ignorance.

    Herman Cain flat out lied. he said:
    "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
    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.

    I'm not saying that disqualifies him, if anything it means he's adapting well to being a politician since they all lie.

    I don't know that I'd say he "faked" it. I simply think he answered with what he knew the best he could, no matter how poorly it was answered.

    That being said, he'll definitely know the answer the next time the question is asked.

    No, he completely faked it. He later confessed he didn't understand the Right of Return when Wallace asked him and that he learned about it afterwards. So when he gave the answer he gave on Sunday, he was doing exactly what he claims he doesn't do -- fake it when he doesn't know what he's talking about.

    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.

    Ouch #1.

    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.

    He is very good at throwing rocks at everybody but when they start throwing back I think he will run into trouble. I also hear he makes a good pizza.........
