Presidential hopeful Herman Cain says even if New Jersey Gov. Christie enters the presidential race, he is too liberal to appeal to conservatives — and voters in the Garden State agree. Cain also told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Monday the controversy surrounding a racial slur once painted on a rock at the entrance of a Texas hunting club frequented by presidential rival Rick Perry is a non-issue.
“Well, his position on if you are here illegally, that’s not — that shouldn’t be a crime — well, a lot of conservatives believe that is a crime and I’ve talked to some people in New Jersey who live there and they say he has a lot of liberal positions,” Cain said. “I don’t know all of them, but I think all of that will come out.”
Cain then agreed with Hannity that conservatives also are finding fault with Perry, because of his position on granting Texas in-state tuition to illegal immigrants, but the “n” word once painted on a rock at the entrance of the hunting club was not a problem for the governor.
“It was the fact that it was on the rock and whoever was in charge of the rock — it was insensitive,” Cain said. “Now, the latest information I found — I’ve heard, because I haven’t researched it, haven’t had time, you know, more important things to do — is that in 1981 they painted over the sign.
“So, what happened from 1960 to 1981? However long it was there? I'm not trying to figure out who was responsible for leaving it there, who painted it over — as long as it was there, it was insensitive,” he said. “That was my whole point — and I even went so far to say this, Sean: I don’t believe that that word on that rock represents how Governor Perry feels about black people in America. I really don’t.”
