Herman Cain: I’d Be A Better Nominee Than Romney Because ‘I Have Some Depth To My Ideas’

Herman Cain , businessman and former Republican presidential candidate, took a shot at GOP nominee Mitt Romney on Thursday during a talk at the University of Florida. Cain claimed that he would be leading President Barack Obama in the polls today if he were his party’s nominee for president. “The reason is quite simple: I have some depth to my ideas,” Cain said.

Cain told the students that his 9-9-9 tax plan was a specific tax reform proposal and that Romney should be advocating for a similarly sweeping reform.

“Stupid people are ruining America, and we’ve got to take it back,” Cain told an audience of university students in Florida.

The former CEO of Godfathers Pizza also told his students that the controversy surrounding remarks Romney made before an audience of donors several weeks ago about the 47 percent was a “non-story.”
