    Apparently, he does according to some Conservatives, many of whom refer to him as the Messiah.
    Please ! Take your "Messiah". Take your Jesse Jackson. You can have Al Sharpton too ! Go to that Galaxy far far away !!! Pleeeeeeze ! Enough of this "We got more blacks than you" !!!

    The Republican Party is light years from ever nominating a black person to be their presidental candidate. They are like the Mormon church of the 50's.

    As they admit, the closest they ever came was Colin Powell .... a black man with no ambitions of running for president.

    For all you liberals, when we do finally nominate a black man for President, we will be sure he is someone's "Uncle Tom".

    Wouldn't want y'all to soil yourselves.

    And conservatives can start playing the "Uncle Tom" card! Aren't you excited?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    So guess what? You guys bashing each other over this point are both right. LOL.
    Wait a minute, now, danarhea. If you take this position - ruling on a technicality - then Herman Cain's statement meets the equivalent of Sarah Palin's Paul Revere commentary. She merged historical events; he confused the wording of the Constitution w/the Declaration of Independence.

    Same difference...?...you tell me???

    Conservatives aren't racists, like Liberals are. We actually appreciate a minority person who thinks for himself and doesn't blindly follow the party line.

The irony here is that Life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness is from the Declaration of Independence. Maybe he should READ the Constitution.

    Also Cain went on the Glen Beck show and said he would be reluctant to appoint a Muslim to a position of power. Once again Cain shows his lack of knowledge on the Constitution. Because in Article IV, Clause 3 it says "no religion test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States."

    I really wish some Republicans would actually read the darn thing before they try to act all patriotic.

    Herman Cain should read the Constitution | United Liberty | Free Market - Individual Liberty - Limited Government
    I just wish elected Democrats would follow the Constitution.
