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?'"
