I sure hope that fence pours mesquite sauce on the corpses of the women and children fleeing drug gangs to the 'land of opportunity'. Cause that's what Mexican barbeque should smell like!
And since immigrants kill American citizens at a lower rate than natives, I assume we'll we can start killing them indiscriminately right? No? Wait, c'mon, I can kill at least as many Americans as Rick Perry!

Being voted "most likeable republican" doesn't exactly sound like a hot title you want to earn.
That's true. Huckabee sure is likable.
Ok, likability gets you that much, but not by itself. Cain won't even get a TV show.

What the fuck America?
A country actually enforcing its immigration laws and protecting its borders? Ridiculous.
Oh come now, you can't tell me you don't see that slight peppering of racism all over this, right? Aside of that I agree with you though; way too many people are quick to call anyone in favor of enforced border control racist.
It's funny because I grew up in Southern California as a half-breed Mexican, and 90% of the Mexicans I knew who's families came her legally hated illegal Mexicans more than the white people who I knew who hate them did.
But then, my Mexican grandfather came here illegally and I thus I wouldn't be alive if not for illegal Mexican border hopping. Hmmm.
I'm torn really.
Mexico is quite ruthless with their immigration laws, so are other first world countries. Cain is not going for any common ground here, just catch phrases and scare tactics "THEY WILL STEAL JOBS AND MURDER YOUR CHILDREN AND MAKE US ALL DANCE JARABE TAPATIO!"
A country that relies on migrant labor to grow its food enforcing its borders as if it were Dachau or a nightmare from the Iron Curtain? More of that please! It's sure to get rid of this Nazi stigma that we Republicans have had to deal with ever since George Bush's grandfather funded Hitler.
I bet Equestria doesn't have to deal with this kind of shit.
Cena can you think of any other country with an electrified barb wire fence surrounding its borders?
You do realize that he went back on this statement and said it was a joke right? So you probably shouldn't be defending it.
North Korea has landmines and machine gun nests, does that count?
I should have said first world nations that aren't in a perpetual state of war. But then America wouldn't make the cut I guess.
I'm aware that the electric fence is a joke and unrealistic, but there is often truth to humor. The truth being that we do need to tighten up control of the border. So I wasn't defending that. I'm defending Cain from Liberals who'd be quick to call him a racist.
I'm not anti immigrant. Before joining the Coast Guard I was living in the Mexican part of Atlanta. Let people in legally. Do it the right way, I'm tired of people making a mockery out of our laws.
I don't support OWS, but I do believe white collar criminals should be punished for their crimes.
Weren't you half Mexican, Cena?
I will agree that we need to ensure that people are here legally, or else it's unfair to those who made it through the process to get here legally. But joking about killing people and dehumanizing them to the cheers of crowds of white people is not the best way to have that conversation.
I'm not saying it's racism, but it's racism.
India's border with Pakistan is now clearly visible from space at night due to floodlights erected to deter jihadists from infiltrating.
According to Gwynne Dyer Pentagon planners have considered contingency plans for a flood of starving Latino climate change refugees including a fence with stern warnings, and a 10m wide trench with mines, and remotely operated machine guns on towers.
By then, of course, the fence would have to roughly follow the Mason-Dixon line to Oregon.

A decade from now I hope to read that Herman Cain & Barack Obama were old friends. "Cain volunteered to enter the GOP race & promised Obama that he'd say a lot of stupid things that would have given Glenn Beck pause. The Cain/Obama debate was seen as the death knell for the GOP for many, many years."

So they can kill citizens and border patrol officers, but they can't figure out how to get through a fence.

I no longer think the American divide can be crossed rationally.
Between this plea for violence and the cheers Cain got for "its the fault of unemployed for being unemployed", the differences between the two sides of America are too great.
In the next ten years, this divide means that government is going to stop functioning effectively. Tensions will grow and rhetoric will escalate. Slightly-different versions of OWS and the Tea Party will start coming into direct conflict. Its going to get very ugly.
I'm certain of it.
Git yourself an arf and buckets o' ammo now.
Don't worry, there won't be any blood on the streets. Violent revolution will boil down to of a bunch of confused angry people tipping over cars and looting the Gap in designated riot zones as usual.

"Don't Whizz on...the Electric Fence"

God damn all these assholes make Romney the only likeable candidate.
I think by "likeable" you're saying "not quite as batshit Teabagger whoop-whoop-crazy as the other people running."
Which is, as some have pointed out, like being the tallest midget in the circus.

"Let me first say it was a joke, and some people don't think that it was a good joke, and it's probably not a joke that you're supposed to make if you're a presidential candidate. I apologize if it offended anyone. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea culpa.
I don't like to offend anyone...however, I don't apologize for using a combination of a fence. And it might be electrified -- I'm not walking away from that."
Welp, sounds pretty genuine to me!
Cain's pretty much done. During the last debate, he had to backtrack on just about every talking point, got hammered on his tax plan (from the other GOPer loonies who are putting forth yet another soak-the-un-rich "Flat Tax" plan), and pretty much had to claim everything he said was taken wrong, was a joke, or was a mis-statement.
Buh-bye, Herman. Have fun "debating" with Bachmann, 'cause that's about as serious as your candidacy has become, short of a meteor killing everyone else in the race.

Yes, a 20 foot high, electrified billion dollar fence will keep them out! Those darn Mexicans, coming ever here and starting their own businesses that take jobs from Americans. I mean, no American owned business would ever hire an illegal right? They must be starting their own.
