Herman Cain Says Rev. Wright is "Fair Game" Against Obama [Video]
1 year ago
Days after endorsing Romney, Cain turns attention to controversial reverend.
Herman Cain is back in the news and he's not staying quiet.
“It is fair if someone wants to highlight the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his relationship with Barack Obama because, quite frankly, it wasn’t highlighted enough in 2008 when he was running for president the first time,” Cain told Greta Van Susteren of Fox News on Thursday. “This administration, which has been shown to go after people who donate to Mitt Romney and try and slander their reputation, then, yes — it is fair game. I don’t think it is off-limits.”
Cain says the attacks on Obama's connections to Wright wouldn't be racist at all.
The former CEO of Godfather's Pizza and one-time frontrunner for the GOP nomination weighed in on Wright as a GOP SuperPAC is preparing to launch a $10 million campaign against Obama centering around Wright.
“How could [Obama] have been in his church for 20 years and not assimilated some of the things that he was talking about?” he said. “So no, it is not racist. It’s just that the liberals want to play the race card when it is convenient.”
