Cain Says Henry Kissinger Job Offer was a Joke


Not serious about offering him a job, but serious about seeking his counsel, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger recently met with GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, reports ABC News.

Cain claims he was only teasing about offering to give Kissinger his old job back.

“Dr. Kissinger has retired and I respect that,” Cain said. “I just appreciate the fact that he was kind enough to spend some time and give me his perspective on the Middle East and a lot of these other countries around the world. So he was like a wise sage, you know, giving me a lot of perspectives about how to go about dealing with these issues. Which is, that’s something that I’ve talked about.”

After the Kissinger meeting, Cain’s campaign manager Mark Block told the National Review that Kissinger complimented a web video in which Block is seen smoking a cigarette.

Cain also named Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C. and former Ambassador John Bolton as individuals he would appoint to his cabinet. But Cain also added that those closest to him in a Cain administraion would be private-sector businesspeople. “My administration will have a majority of businesspeople along with some seasoned officeholders who will not be afraid to challenge the status quo,” he said.
