Herman Cain: God told me to run, ‘I was like Moses’
Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain says that he was shocked when God told him to run for president.
“Before President Obama took office, I never even conceived or thought of running for president,” Cain told a group of Young Republicans in South Carolina Saturday. “It was only after he took office and I saw his arrogant disregard for the American people that I know that I had to do what I could do. … That when I prayed and prayed and prayed. I’m a man of faith. I had to do a lot of praying for this one.”
“And when I finally realized that it was God saying that this is what I needed to do, I was like Moses: ‘You’ve got the wrong man, Lord. Are you sure?’”
