    Herman Cainís confusing views on the governmentís role in abortion

    During an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan on Wednesday night, Cain said that he personally opposes abortion under all circumstances, even in cases of rape or incest. But when pressed on how that view would direct his policy decisions as president, Cain appeared to support the notion that abortion should remain legal in those cases.
    OK, so Cain does not like abortion, even in cases of rape or incest. However, in those cases, Cain says it's not the government's business to dictate to the states. The mass media whores call this "confusing". I do not call it confusing at all. Cain has a personal belief about abortion, but separates it from what he believes to be the role of government. What is so confusing about that, except the media whores attempting to make a mountain out of a???...... Wait, a molehill doesn't even exist here.

    Damn, if only Mitt Romney could "flip flop" like that, he would actually be telling the truth, for a change. LOL.

    I like Cain, but unless he walks this back, you'd have to consider him pro-choice.

    The thing is, he didn't say he thought abortion was wrong, he said abortion should be illegal. That's not just a statement of personal opinion.
    For: legalizing drugs, gay marriage, abortion, guns, universal health care, public sector jobs, nuclear power, free education, progressive taxation
    Against: corporations, make-work, the 40 hour work week, intellectual property, imperialism, "homeland security," censorship

    Romney is an unprincipled opportunist.

    He only demanded his gardener fire the illegals because he was "running for national office."

    Who knows what Romney thinks about abortion this week.

    Any idea if he is talking about the Federal government or the government period?

    Honestly, republicans need to stop pushing for this. We are in an economy that is in shambles, people are out of work and can't find work, and not to mention the occupy wallstreet. Honestly, drop it and save it for another year.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Re: Herman Cainís confusing views on the governmentís role in abortion

    Actually, it's a very libertarian view of abortion. He finds it morally abhorrent, but thinks that the government should not involve itself in personal moral decisions.

    He tiptoes around it so that he doesn't sound too pro-choice for the Religious Right, but I think his opinion is clear (and correct).

    Re: Herman Cainís confusing views on the governmentís role in abortion

    Herman cain will not fall out of favor with the far right....Hes all they have left...theres no where else to go...sad isnt it ? Each of their favorites have failed amongst the moderates and independents. They sent out their best to recruit that effort failed...and now sadly they have to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

    Heres the deal...if Cain squeaks out romny...Obama wins another 4 yrs...anyone debating cain head to head can rip him a new one...on a variety of issues that he is clueless about and doesnt have time to learn
