Herman Cain's salesmanship of the “9-9-9 Plan,” mentioned nearly too many times to count in last week's Bloomberg/Washington Post Republican debate, has propelled him to the top of some Republican nominee polls.
However, his foreign policy answers have so far failed to draw rave reviews.
Cain's international affairs messaging was vague in a Sunday Meet the Press interview. The Godfather's Pizza CEO gave non-answers when asked if alleged Iranian involvement in a plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the US was an act of war.
Cain also backtracked on a statement he made about outfitting the US border with Mexico with an electric fence, saying it was only a joke.
