Herman Cain On ISIS, 'I Never Would Have Let It Get This Far'

That was former presidential candidate Herman Cain's response to current situation with ISIS. Mr. Cain was speaking at the University of Central Florida (UCF) as part of his Campus Solutions Tour.

Foreign policy did not appear to be Cain's strong point when he was trying to secure the Republican nomination. His stumbling, at times incoherent, answer to a question about Libya dogged his campaign. Nevertheless, when it comes to the current situation in the middle east, it doesn't seem like anyone has an answer. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, President Obama recently admitted that his administration has not yet formed a strategy for ISIS.

However, Herman Cain's emphasis at the UCF was not to discuss the terrorist group.

Since his unsuccessful bid for the Republic nomination for president, Herman Cain has stayed active in getting his message out. According to Mr. Cain, he has visited more than 140 college campuses to tell students about what's happening in the nation. That was his mission last Wednesday at UCF.

Mr. Cain discussed the economy, taxes, Obamacare, and then things became interesting as the audience started asking questions.

Naturally, a question about whether he would run again came out, to which Cain responded,

"While I won't say never, I will only run again if it's God's will."

A quote that sounded very similar to what he said at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans,

"I do not know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future. And I trust in God."

Although that sounds like it might be Herman Cain's unconventional antics, there might be something to his hinting. Before running in the primary in 2012, the businessman dropped this hint, "There may also be a dark-horse candidate you don't know."

Also at the UCF speaking event, Mr. Cain tried to lay to rest the accusations of sexual harassment that ultimately forced him to drop out of the race.

The Campus Solutions Tour was Cain's second visit to UCF campus. He visited before in 2012 and said that the students inspired him to come again, saying,

"When I was here last, I had a really good experience with the students. The questions and interactions I had with the students were great. I've always loved speaking with college students and on college campuses. I want them to be informed about the issues … "
Whether Herman Cain was using the opportunity to set himself up for a new political run won't be clear for many more months.
