Monday at the National Press Club, GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain said he would approach U.S. foreign policy the same way he did making pizzas when he took over as CEO of Godfather’s Pizza in the 1980s (video below).
Cain compared his initial ignorance about pizza to his present ignorance about U.S. foreign policy as he plans to become Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. armed forces.
Cain said: "I don’t believe that you need to have extensive foreign policy experience if you know how to make sure you’re working on the right problems, establishing the right priorities, surrounding yourself with good people, which will allow you to put together the plans necessary to solve the problem."
"When I went to Godfather’s Pizza in 1986, the company was supposed to go bankrupt. I had never made a pizza, but I learned. And the way we renewed Godfather’s Pizza as a company is the same approach I will use to renew America. And that is if you want to solve a problem, go to the source closest to the problem and ask the right questions."
