Cain commenting on the Mexican border:
"VAN SUSTEREN: All right, now let me turn to foreign policy. Mexico, as you know, is right next door. Everybody knows that. An enormous amount of violence. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was described it as like Colombia 20 years ago and got rebuked by both President Obama and President Calderon.
If you become president, are you going to -- is there anything you're going to do differently about the drug cartels and the violence that -- down in that country from a humanitarian standpoint, as well as from a national security standpoint for us?
CAIN: Let's start with the national security standpoint. I am going to secure the border for real. That's step one. I don't know why previous administrations, including this one as well as the Bush administration, didn't get serious about securing the border. Maybe they didn't want to offend our neighbor. I'm not concerned about offending them. I'm more concerned about protecting Americans. So that's job number one.
Secondly, yes, I'm not -- I can't worry about humanitarian reasons inside Mexico right now until we make sure that we deal with what's happening in this country and what's leaving this country. You've heard about some of the scandals in terms of weapons, you know, that were going from the United States that ended up in the hands of the drug cartels. We have got to get serious about defending the borders and defending our laws here in the United States first. Those are going to be my two top priorities. Then I'll deal with humanitarian issues that might be happening in Mexico.
VAN SUSTEREN: Mr. Cain, thank you for joining us. There are a lot of issues, and I sure hope you'll come back because it's going to be a long race.
CAIN: It's a marathon, Greta. And thanks for having me on.
VAN SUSTEREN: Indeed, it is. Thank you, sir."
He's speaking the truth and not pandering to Mexicans like candidates and Presidents from both parties have done to date.
Behavior likethat and his "9-9-9" flat rate tax (something I've long been a fan of) are why his stock is rising.
This is the Pub. Leave common sense at the door.
