    While I have my doubts that he can obtain the candidacy, if he did I would vote for him. I may very well vote for him in the primary... still thinking on it.

    BTW more than half of the people voting No in the poll are liberals, who aren't likely to vote for any GOP candidate anyway...

    His name has a nice ring to it. I'll vote for him.

He is worried about creeping Sharia law. Maybe that sounds nutty to a lot of people and he'll lose votes over it, but the man said it, and I hope he doesn't back peddle so much explaing it that he looks like a flip flopper.
    1) Obama appointed some people to executive positions that aren't even close to being liberals. Among them Bob Gates and Jon Huntsman.

    2) Being a Muslim does not preclude one from standing up for conservative values. How about treating an individual based on his own merits and beliefs, rather than discriminating based on one's religion? Just because a person is Muslim does not mean that he will be sworn in on the Quran, and just because one gets sworn in on the Quron does not mean one doesn't stand up for the Constitution. How about treating everyone as an individual before rushing to judgment and excluding an entire population of candidates, and profiling based on religion? How about treating people based on their own merits, instead of excluding an entire group of people because they might not uphold the Constitution?

    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.

    Yea, that looks pretty pitiful, but that was back in Jan and some of those people aren't even running. Palin I don't think is, Huckabees out. Pence is out. Barbour's out. He's even with Pawlenty in more recent polls. get him in a debate with Romney and the numbers will change drastically I betcha. And tonight will change things too. I think Romney made a big mistake by being a no show.

    He says his name is like Cain in the bible, only he's never killed anybody.

    How about letting our president appoint who he wants and we can bitch about it later, like we do with Obama?
    I doubt Cain will be appointing any communists, seeing as he is going to be real picky. He's good at putting successful teams together as you can see from his business experience.

    In the unlikely event he becomes President, I feel that he's free to pick whoever he wants to complement his team. I just had a problem with what he said (the quote that Hatuey put up), and what that reveals about his thought process.
