ARE FOR $2,000 HOLDING HIS FAKE

BIRTH CERTIFICATE.

MEANWHILE, ON THE REPUBLICAN

SIDE THERE'S BEEN A SHAKEUP IN

THE G.O.P. FIELD AS PRESUMED

FRONT-RUNNERS RICK PERRY AND

MITT ROMNEY LOST THE FLORIDA

STRAW POLL BY DOUBLE DIGIT

MARGINS TO FORMER GODFATHER'S

PIZZA C.E.O. HERMAN CAIN.

THE VICTORY SPEECH, CAIN

DECLARED "AS A BLACK REPUBLICAN,

HE HAS WHAT IT TAKES TO BEAT

OBAMA."

>> I BELIEVE, QUITE FRANKLY,

THAT MY CAMPAIGN, I WILL GARNER

A MINIMUM OF A THIRD OF A BLACK

VOTE IN THIS COUNTRY AND

POSSIBLY MORE.

I THINK THEY'RE OVER THIS FIRST

AFRICAN AMERICAN PRESIDENT

THING.

I THINK THAT IS BEHIND THEM.

>> Jon: I'M SURE THAT YOU DO.

(LAUGHTER)

JOINING US IS OUR SENIOR BLACK

CORRESPONDENT LARRY WILMORE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

MARY, TELL ME.

IS HERMAN CAIN RIGHT?

ARE BLACK VOTERS OVER OBAMA?

>> WELL, LET ME PUT IT THIS WAY,

JON, IT WAS SWEET TO ELECT THE

FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT BUT IT

WILL BE EVEN SWEETER TO SEE THE

FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT KICKED OUT

OF OFFICE BY THE SECOND BLACK

PRESIDENT!

(LAUGHTER)

AND IF IT HAPPENED HE'D JUST

KICK RICK PERRY'S AWECATION ASS

UP AND DOWN THE STATE OF FLORIDA

PROVING SOMETIMES POLITICS IS

LIKE A PORN MOVIE.

(LAUGHTER)

>> HOW'S THAT?

>> YOU KNOW, PIZZA GUY SHOWS UP

OUT OF NOWHERE AND (BLEEP)S YOU.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

THIS IS GOING TO BE GREAT, JON.

WITH CAIN IN THERE BLACK PEOPLE

CAN'T LOSE!

>> Jon: HERMAN CAIN WAS A GREAT

WIN IN A FLORIDA STRAW POLL BUT

HE'S A LONG SHOT FOR THE

NOMINATION.

>> THEN HE GOES BACK TO MAKING

PIZZA.

LIKE I SAID, WE CAN'T LOSE!

>> Jon: I DO NOT SEE HOW YOU CAN

BE EXCITED BY HERMAN CAIN!

YOU WERE A HUGE OBAMA SUPPORTER.

>> I DON'T RECALL IT THAT WAY.

I VOTED FOR OBAMA BECAUSE HE WAS

BLACK, NOT BECAUSE I AGREED WITH

HIM.

(LAUGHTER)

I BARELY AGREED WITH HIM THAT HE

WAS BLACK.

(LAUGHTER)

AND WE'RE NOT GIVING OUT FREE

PASS THIS IS TIME AROUND.

BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT IS TWICE THE

LEVEL OF WHITE UNEMPLOYMENT.

AND WHAT DOES OBAMA TELL A BLACK

AUDIENCE?

>> SHAKE IT UP!

STOP COMPLAINING!

SOME GRUMBLING!

STOP CRYING!

(LAUGHTER)

STOP COMPLAINING, SOME GRUMBLING

STOP CRYING?

WHY IS HE ALWAYS PICKING ON US,

JON?

(MUMBLING)

(CRYING)

WHY DO OUR PROBLEMS ALWAYS HAVE

TO COME LAST, JON?

>> Jon: YOU WERE JUST

COMPLAINING AND THEN YOU

GRUMBLED AND THEN YOU WERE

CRYING.

THAT'S WHAT YOU DO!

>> LOOK, MY POINT IS WHEN JEWISH

VOTERS HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT

OBAMA'S ISRAEL POLICY HE

ADDRESSES THEM.

HE DOESN'T TELL YOU TO STOP

COMPLAINING, GRUMBLING AND

CRYING SHCHLT.

>> Jon: WELL, TO BE HONEST WITH

YOU, JEWS ARE NOT A PARTICULAR

COMPLAINY PEOPLE SO I DON'T SEE

WHY HE WOULD TELL US THAT

BECAUSE, QUITE FRANKLY... HERE'S

WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

WHY DO YOU THINK HERMAN CAIN

WOULD BE BETTER TO AFRICAN

AMERICANS THAN OBAMA?

HE HASN'T PROPOSED ANYTHING THAT

WOULD BE SPECIFIC TO BLACK

VOTERS.

>> YES, HE HAS.

JUST LISTEN TO WITH THE RIGHT

EARS.

>> I'M GOING TO PASS MY 9-9-9

PLAN.

A 9% PERSONAL TAX, A 9% NATIONAL

SALES TAX.

>> Jon: 999.

IT'S A TAX PLAN AND A SET OF

LOTTO NUMBERS!

(LAUGHTER)

9... WHAT WAS THE LAST ONE?

>> Jon: 9.

>> I'M BOXING THESE NUMBERS,

JON.

OH, WAIT, I'M GOING TO PLAY IT

STRAIGHT, NO, I THINK I'LL BOX

THEM.

>> Jon: HOW DO YOU BOX... FORGET

ABOUT IT.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE BLACK

VOTE HERE.

WHAT ABOUT WHITE VOTERS?

ARE THEY GOING TO VOTE A SECOND

BLACK PRESIDENT IN A ROW JUST

BECAUSE HE'S...

>> JON, THEY'LL VOTE FOR A

SECOND AND A THIRD.

LINE THEM UP, JON.

I THINK WHITE VOTERS HAVE

FINALLY LEARNED WHAT WHITE WOMEN

HAVE KNOWN FOR A LONG TIME.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: WHICH IS...

>> ONCE YOU GO....

>> Jon: BLACK.

>> HEY, HEY, NO, JON, LET ME

FINISH, GOD.

ONCE YOU GO DOWN THE ROAD TO

DIVERSITY IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO

CHANGE COURSE AND RETURN TO

ONE'S PREVIOUS MISCONCEPTIONS.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING

TO SAY... HOW IS THAT A THING

WHITE WOMEN KNOW?

>> JON, I THINK BECAUSE WOMEN

STRUGGLED FOR THEIR OWN RIGHTS.

THEY KNOW HOW SATISFYING IT

FEELS TO TAKE A MASSIVE....

>> Jon: BLACK?

>> NO, JON, STOP!

STEP FORWARD, JON!

>> Jon: SORRY ABOUT THAT.
