China Is Seeking Nuclear Weaponry? Who Knew? Apparently Not Herman Cain

China Is Seeking Nuclear Weaponry?

Who Knew?  Apparently Not Herman Cain

By Dell Hill

Herman Cain seemed to jump out of the frying pan, right into the fire today.

He just finishes a whirlwind tour of the talking heads radio and TV shows in an all-out effort to discredit some sort of vague sexual harassment charges from a dozen years ago and then does an Interview with Judy Woodruff at PBS and says this:

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.

JUDY WOODRUFF: And what could you do as president to head that off?

HERMAN CAIN: My China strategy is quite simply outgrow China. It gets back to economics. China has a $6 trillion economy and they're growing at approximately 10 percent. We have a $14 trillion economy -- much bigger -- but we're growing at an anemic 1.5, 1.6 percent. When we get our economy growing back at the rate of 5 or 6 percent that it has the ability to do, we will outgrow China.

And secondly, 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.” - (Emphasis added)

“Earth to Herman Cain....Come In, Herman.”

China's first nuclear test took place in 1964 and first hydrogen bomb test occurred in 1967.  47 and 44 years ago, respectively.

I like Herman Cain but just how long can he go on giving answers such as this to extremely critical questions?

This one is gonna’ leave a mark.
