It was quite the interview new Republican presidential frontunner Herman Cain had with David Gregory on Meet The Press Sunday morning.

When Gregory asked Cain about his previous comments on liberals wanting to destroy America, Cain did not back down from those statements, highlighting likely cuts to defense spending as his reasoning.

“Look at this economy David, the engine off economic growth is the business sector,” he said. “If we allow this economy to continue to go down, it will destroy our economical capability. And as a result, we are looking at how much in defense we are looking to cut, that’s destroying it.”

He added: “That’s the conclusion I have drawn, it is their mission. They do not believe in a stronger America. That is my opinion, yes.”
