Herman Cain Smoking, Speaking on Sunday, Republican presidential candidate and former businessman Herman Cain shrugged off criticism of his latest ad campaign, saying his campaign was not encouraging voters to smoke.
Mr. Cain said Sunday that cigarette smoking “is not a fun thing to do” and denied that a recently launched web ad campaign was intended to exalt or glorify smoking.
“One of the issues in this campaign, we will be Herman Herman,” said Bob Schieffer, CBS. “Mark Block is a smoker. We say, we will be brand Mark. That’s all we’re trying to say, because we believe that people are people.”
“I am not a smoker. But I have a problem if that is their choice,” said Mr. Cain. “This was not the intention of sending any signal to be subliminal.”
The announcement, issued early this week, shows Mr. Cain’s chief of staff smoking block marks halfway through the announcement of a minute.
Cain’s campaign, which spent much of the week responding to criticism of the announcement, said Wednesday that the announcement was intended to provide voters with a vision of operations Mr. Cain campaign.
Speaking on Sunday, Mr. Cain defended the ad’s message, saying that his campaign is committed to transparency and connection with voters.
However, Mr. Schieffer accused the Republican of Georgia – a cancer survivor himself – to glorify smoking, arguing that as a Republican favorite who had to start taking more responsibility for raising the level of dialogue. The host of CBS asked whether Cain’s campaign should remove the ad, however, the Georgia Republican said he had never been broadcast on television and that the diffuse nature of the Internet makes it almost impossible to erase.
“Lock brand smokes. That’s all the ad says,” Mr. Cain said. “We were not trying to say it’s cool to smoke. You have a lot of people in this country who smoke. But what I respect Mark as a smoker … do not smoke around me or someone else smokes around. He goes out. “
