Herman Cain: I’d be beating Obama

Herman Cain says he'd have a "substantial" lead if he were the nominee

Topics: Mitt Romney, Barack Obama, Republican Party, Herman Cain, 2012 Elections, ,

Sometimes, pride sticks around after the fall, too. Or, at least it does in Herman Cain’s case.

In a speech at the University of Florida on Thursday, Cain said that if he had been the nominee he’d have a “substantial lead” over Barack Obama. And what is his reason? “The reason is quite simple: I have some depth to my ideas.”

“Stupid people are ruining America, and we’ve got to take it back,” Cain said in the speech, which was part of his “College Truth Tour.”

The Gainesville Sun reports that Cain ended his speech by singing  “Believe in Yourself” from the movie “The Wiz.”
