Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain makes it clear in his new book that Texas Rep. Ron Paul’s supporters annoy him with their “stupid” questions about the Federal Reserve. Cain, the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO, writes that Paul’s supporters are “threatened by me” and are “trying to destroy me on the fact that I was once affiliated with” the Federal Reserve.
Cain was chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City in 1995 and 1996.
“I get the same stupid question at almost every one of these events,” Cain writes. “I know it’s a deliberate strategy. How can a person randomly show up at a hundred events and ask the same stupid question to try to nail me on the Federal Reserve? It’s really becoming annoying more than anything else.” Cain said Paul’s fan have “stretched the truth” by accusing him of not wanting to audit the fed. “I have never said that,” Cain wrote. “I have said: ‘I don’t think you’re going to find anything to audit on the Federal Reserve.’ But they want you to believe that Herman Cain doesn’t want the Federal Reserve to be audited.”

Cain is right. Ron Paul supporters are pulling a chapter out of the Saul Alinsky playbook; repeat something often enough and it will be perceived as truth. It's an annoying tactic, and serves no useful purpose other than antagonizing Cain and spreading disinfo.
I suggest that everyone else continually ask Ron Paul why he advocates giving heroin to babies. Same tactic...see how long it is until he becomes frustrated.edit on 27-9-2011 by mishigas because: (no reason given)
