    Herman Cain mistake on the Constitution.

    If this has been discussed before, I apologize. But recently I heard Herman Cain a Conservative running for President state that "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." was in the Constitution. Before saying that we don't need to re write the Constitution. But we need to re-read the Constitution. 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.

    The Constitution guarantees the right to life, liberty and property. Maybe you should read The Constitution, before you start hacking on someone else about it?

    I'm talking about Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, which is in the Declaration of Independence. How can you not understand the difference between property and the pursuit of happiness? Honestly it's like you didn't even read what I wrote.

    This a pretty common mistake because as apdst says:
    The Constitution guarantees the right to life, liberty and property. Maybe you should read The Constitution, before you start hacking on someone else about it?
    Many get this confused because few people read either Document after School.

    I can understand that, but don't quote something if you're not positive about it. And besides I'm more angered about him not appointing Muslims to a position of power based off of their religion. I think we need to discuss that more than the Declaration of Independence blunder. Because if he really believes that, then there is something to be concerned about.

    Re: Herman Cain mistake on the Constitution.

    1) The quote IS from the DoI, NOT the Constitution. It is irrelevant as to what the Constitution represents. The quote is not there.
    2) Very minor error that I think is really irrelevant when assessing Cain as a candidate.
    3) Let's see how many Conservatives will by hypocritical in THIS thread by minimizing this issue, but over reacting to Obama's 2008 flub. I already see two.

    It's just Cain isn't the first Republican I've see discriminate against Muslims.

    Re: Herman Cain mistake on the Constitution.

    I heard Herman Cain say that during the GOP debate and the other GOP candidates kinda followed suite stating they wouldn't appoint a Muslim to their Cabinet unless they swore an oath to the Constitution. It's an interesting "politically correct" statement to make actually.

    Most members of the President's staff must be approved by Congress. The "czars" which every President has had them since Nixon, I think are appointed by the President himself. So, it's kind of a Catch-22. Still, I wonder if any of these GOP candidates would actually have every swearing in ceremony for members of their Cabinet open to the public or will they only do so if such applies only to Muslim members?

    Frankly speaking, I think the GOP candidates did themselves a disservice on this particular religious issue because they came across as being very exclusionary on religious intolerance. I understand the concern but that's why we have background investigations to root out the subverters. Use the proper procedures and security checks and you shouldn't have to worry about "the terrorist in your midst".

    Yeha, cause look at the GOP's backing of government programs that discriminate against people with the wrong skin color!


    Oh wait.. that's the Dem's that do that...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
