President Barack Obama’s constant interruptions of Mitt Romney in their town-hall debate on Tuesday “did not make him look presidential,” former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain told Newsmax TV in an exclusive interview.

“Gov. Romney remained presidential — and when President Obama insisted on interrupting at inopportune times, it did not make him look presidential, and it did not make him look like his reputation of always looking cool and calm,” Cain told Newsmax in an exclusive interview after the debate at Hofstra University on Long Island in New York. “He looked a little vulnerable tonight, and he showed it when he used interruption as a tactic rather than letting Gov. Romney to finish his responses.”

Cain, the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, said Obama’s approach smacked that of Vice President Joe Biden’s during his debate with GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan last week at Centre College in Danville, Ky.

“Obviously, President Obama came out with much more spunk than he did the last time – and he utilized some of the exact same tactics that Joe Biden used in the VP debate, and that is to try and interrupt and distract the audience away from some points that the Governor was going to make.”

As such, Cain, said, Romney “did live up to those expectations from his first debate performance, but he had to face the same confusion and distraction that Rep. Ryan had to deal with.”

The Obama interruptions also made it tough to score the debate.

“You can’t pick a winner in this type of debate, especially when you have President Obama constantly interrupting, because it was the same effect as in the VP debate,” Cain said. “When Gov. Romney was presenting his vision and specifics and specific steps, he did a much better job.

“Just like Vice President Biden, President Obama’s responses were confusing – and they were interrupted, so I don’t think people learned as much about what he plans to do other than he had the chance to say I want to build upon the last four years.

“Well, the last four years have been a disaster – and most people are smart enough to know that they don’t want four more years of that.”

But despite it all, the former Massachusetts governor came out ahead in this debate, Cain said.

“Clearly, he was much more specific and much more factual than President Obama. That was the difference for people who were really paying attention.”
