Former pizza chain CEO, tea partier and potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain closed out CPAC on day two, declaring that “the American Dream is under attack,” and that “stupid people are ruining America.”Cain said that the American Dream is being attacked by what he calls “the -ations” — legislation, regulation, and taxation. He continued that Republicans need to repeal and replace health care reform, and also “throw out” the “messed up tax code” and replace it with a new system.
The “objective of the liberals is to destroy America,” he Cain continued, but “if you can get a liberal to engage in an intelligent in the first place, ask them to strip away labels.”
Like, for example, Cain said, when liberals call anyone who disagrees with Obama a “racist.”
“They call me racist too just because I disagree with a President who happens to be black,” he continued. He told the crowd: “You are not racists — you are patriots.”
About a potential run for president, Cain only said: “Not everyone can run for office. Not everyone is in a position to run for President — I’m just sayin.'”
He concluded, to a standing ovation: “The United States of America will not become the United States of Europe.”
