    Fox news tomorrow night (thurs) check your guide. Debate in SC. Unfortunately no Romney. I'm looking forward to that debate later on. Also a debate between trump and Cain would be fun, being as they are all businessmen. However tomorrow will be Cain/ Pawlenty/Paul/Roemer

    He'll win if he gets out there and people get to know him. So far it's only the tea party crowd and they love him. Lots of people are still saying Herman Cain? Who's that?

    Lmao... Herman Cain... Allen West.... Sarah Palin... I don't know what's funnier... the fact that the 2 guys you're rooting for are completely unheard of or that you think a guy who oversaw pizza delivery guys has what it takes to become a credible politician. Please GOP, make two guys nobody has ever heard of your choices? It'll be fun to see a guy who supports a return to the gold standard run for president. This is especially interesting:

    Herman Cain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    After defending himself against accusations of racism, Cain provoked controversy when he specifically stated that he would be willing to discriminate on grounds of religion when appointing members to his Cabinet, were he elected President, refusing to consider candidates if they were Muslim, on the grounds that such a candidate may support Sharia law.
    What a surprise. A clearly anti-Muslim Conservative. And he appeals to the Tea Party. Another shocker.

    Don't even bother to look up his little interview with Cabuto Barb. I read it. He essentially says 'Well, I'm not saying I wouldn't but if I can't read what's in their head then I won't'.

    He was honest. When asked if he would appoint a Muslim to his cabinet he said "No" without hesitation. I'm fine with that. A president should appoint people who has his same values, like Obama did. Van Jones, Valarie Jarrett, Cass Sustein, Benwick, Rahm and Zeke Emanuel,Jeff Imelt,......

    How many other candidates would be as blunt and honest as that? I'm sure there are others who wouldn't appoint Muslims either, but they'd never flat out say so.

    I'm not fine with it. It is a major character flaw and a display of inability to reason. He has a breakdown somewhere, fundamental, in his logic, ethics and worldview. At worst, perhaps, it illustrates a propensity for delusion.

    It is not ok to judge groups (within some reason - the group 'terrorists' can be judged as a group, for example). If you do judge everyone of a major religion as untrustworthy, you are a paranoid delusional hater, and a moron, in an important part of life.


    All I needed to see was that. I would not vote for him.

    It may sound ridiculous, but I seem to recall liberals and left-wing populists promoting the idea that they needed Washington outsiders and various other people with little political experience only a few years ago. It was that whole ridiculously stupid argument that being away from politics makes one the golden boy and that they won't be tainted, and thus do better work. It was part of that whole "Change" and "Yes We Can" mantra crap that naive souls actually wanted and bought into.

    Whatever the case, and the unlikelihood of success, let's not pretend your side of the fence has not gotten carried away with similar childish notions only a short time ago.

    You know, I really like Herman Cain, but I think Mike Huckabee got a better chance to beat Obama and I would prefer Mike Huckabee. For me, I don't like his statement about muslims at all. It will be used against him in the campaign. Secondly, he is criticising too much. He needs to be able to hold inspiring speeches where he can connect to his voters and talk about what he wants to do.

    However, I would vote for either of them if they went against Obama and I could vote. Cain is also way better than Mitt Romney who is just really boring.

    No idea. I've never heard of the guy before, so I have no idea whether his ideology matches up with my own.

    Damn. It's a good thing you didn't ask any of those questions two years ago, isn't it?

    In answer to the question posed, it depends who he is running against. The only way I could vote for President Obama would be if I died before the next election and the Democrats arranged for me to vote. Certainly not impossible given their penchant for having dead people vote.

    I hope everyone realizes that saying you won't vote for Cain is racism. How dare liberals say they won't vote for him because they disagree with his positions on issues. That can't possibly be a factor. No, anything other than racism is not possible.
