Herman Cain: Today, I could not support Rick Perry as the nominee

People on twitter are freaking out a bit over Herman Cain saying that “I could not support Rick Perry as the nominee for a host of reasons.” Here’s the clip:

Look, if you are really bent out of shape over this, consider what Dan Riehl has to say:

People have to stop screaming for citizen politicians, then freaking out when they don’t talk like life-time politicians

But really, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. I’m guessing that one of reasons that Cain was referring to was the fact that he is running against Rick Perry. Note that he said “today”. He didn’t say 10 months from now.

And sure, I know he referred to Perry’s illegal immigration problems as one of the primary reasons, but he’s running against Rick Perry. He wants to win and therefore he’s going to point out Perry’s weaknesses.

This is just Herman Cain being honest and I think what he said is typical of a candidate running for President.
