Wet-Foot? Dry-Foot? Cain Hot-Foots It.

Miami media played a but of gotcha journalism with Herman Cain, yesterday.

A questioned was asked about the U.S. “wet-foot, dry-foot policy,” which, according to WSJ, allows Cubans who make it to U.S. soil to stay, while those that get caught in transit (in the water) are sent back.

The Miami Herald has the gotcha details:
His campaign kept reporters at bay, and when asked about the Cuban Adjustment Act and the so-called wet-foot, dry-foot policy, Cain seemed stumped…

“Wet-foot, dry-foot policy?” Cain asked. His press handlers interrupted as Cain diverted his course and ducked back into the building. Later, when he emerged, he was asked again by another reporter. Cain didn’t answer.

“Gotta run, gentlemen,” he said.


  1. I wouldn't have known what they were talking about, either.

    then again I'm not running for president.

  2. More inane government policies. I can't blame the guy for not knowing what the hell that was supposed to be. I'd be surprised if 1 out of 1000 Americans know what that meant. I know I didn't.
