From The Daily Mail: Fidgeting in his chair during a video interview, Cain paused and asked for clarification on the question: 'President Obama supported the uprising, correct?'
Once he'd established that fact, he still seemed to struggle to come up with an answer to what should be a key policy question.
Cain hesitated when asked whether he agreed with Obama's decision to back Libyan rebels in overthrowing Moammar Gadhafi. The long-time Libyan dictator was killed last month.
'I do not agree with the way he handled it for the following reason,' Cain said.
'Uh, nope that's, that's a different one,' said Cain, who fidgeted in his chair and crossed his legs.
'See, I got to go back, see, got all this stuff twirling around in my head. Specifically what are you asking me, did I agree or not disagree with Obama?'
Cain eventually explained that he would have done a better job than Obama assessing the nature of the Libyan opposition to Gaddafi.
