Republican U.S. presidential candidate Herman Cain calls all the fuss made about his struggle to answer a question about Libya "flyspecking."

During an interview with Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporters and editors Monday, Cain stumbled when answering a question about whether he agreed with President Obama's approach to the Libyan crisis.

Cain paused for a bit then sought clarification that Obama supported the uprising. Cain paused again, saying he had "all of this stuff twirling around in my head."

Finally, Cain replied, "I would have done a better job of determining who the opposition is. And I'm sure that our intelligence people had some of that information. [Who] made up that opposition might have caused me to make some different decisions about how we participated. Secondly, no I did not agree with [Moammar] Gadhafi killing his citizens. Absolutely not...I would have supported many of the things that they did to help stop that."

A video of the interview posted on the newspaper's Web site went viral. Asked about the reaction to his response, Cain hinted he found the reaction over the top.

"I paused to make sure I didn't say something wrong. ... I didn't," Cain said. "The fact I didn't answer immediately...that is silly...I call it 'flyspecking' every word, every phrase, and now they are flyspecking my pauses..."

He said people were attacking his pauses because "they can't legitimately attack my ideas."
