That goes for those on the Left and the Right.
    That's what I'm shooting for.

Some take the Koran very literally, most American Muslims take the Koran about as literally as most Christians take the Bible.

    The difference between excluding Muslims, and excluding liberals, is that apparently Cain's rationale is that "because of their faith, Muslims might not uphold the Constitution." That's a pretty blanket statement and is not backed up by any evidence. If there's any evidence that the average American Muslim has more disdain for the US Constitution than the average American, I would like to see it.
    People made a similar argument about Kennedy. Since he was Catholic the attack from the right was that he was going to take orders from the Pope and not stay true to the constitution.

    Well then I'm happy for you that you are not a liberal. Getting ducktape off your head would hurt!

He did mention that Donald Trump wouldn't get the GOP presidential knod because he basically killed his chances with the birther issue, and he talked up Pawlenty, but he said not one word about Cain...the man who by most accounts won the first GOP presidential debate. Nothing...zeltch...nahdah!!!

    And the citizens of the Right are suppose to pick the next GOP candidate...???...yeah, right. Good Luck with that!

    This is getting funnier every day!!
    I Know it sucks. I knew he wouldn't get anything from Rove,or the RNC, but I hate that he is being ignored. I'm hoping the Koch bro., Americans for Prosperity etc choose him as their favorite. He doesn't have money of his own. He is having some kind of big fundraiser dinner soon. I forget who's doing that for him.

    Cain can win the general. It's the primary I'm worried about. For one thing, there's the Ron Paul supporters who won't vote for him in the primary, but they will in the general. Another, the media is going to choose someone to promote and it won't be Cain. I'm afraid what might happen is they're going to pick someone who can't beat Obama.
