    His first point of tension for me was the Greenspan answer, but I can give him a pass for that one.

    Then abortion stance. It first was a poorly worded answer and then he took the extremist answer (no abortion ever). Best answer he should have given, "I am against Roe v. Wade" and I will seek it getting overturned and appoint judges to see that it is.

    The China answer. He made a gaffe. He should have corrected himself quickly. Most LOGICAL people knew what he was saying. China is upgrading their nukes and military capacities, but it sounded bad nonetheless.

    Then the sexual harassment RESPONSE. I mean they were caught so off-guard, by something they should have known was coming!

    Now the Libya thing. What the hell was that.

    Foreign is what people are claiming is your weak point, why aren't you studying up?


    I still love the 9-9-9 plan, his economic geniuity is remarkable and undeniable and he would be the perfect man running our economy. However, he has too much foot and mouth disease and I think Romney might be a better pick.

    Does this mean that you're a racist? Because I'm pretty sure you've stated in the past that your support of Cain proved you weren't one.

    Isn't there anyone to blame for Cain's brain fart? Surely the media/liberals/DNC/Perry campaign had something to do with it!

    If 9-9-9 didn't convince you that Cain should not be allowed anywhere near any seat of power in Washington, how could his ineptitude answering a simple question about Libya dissuade?

    Why on earth would working American families vote for someone promising a 9% increase in their cost of living?

    I don't care what his personal view is on abortion. I don't care who says what about sexual harassment unless they have proof. I don't overly mind his gaffes at all. Everyone who spends time in front of the media is gonna say something dumb occasionally. I find it mildly entertaining that those who defend one politicians gaffes as 'misspeaks' are the same ones who howl like banshees about the gaffes from the other side.

    Frankly, I like him because he's not a DC insider. Simple. I hate politicians.

    Do you want guy that talks the talk or walks the walk? A guy who sounds great but can't govern worth a damn? Or a guy that doesn't spread the fertilizer real smooth but gets the job done?

    God, we're so stupid when it comes to electing our political leaders.

    Did anyone from the press or during the debates ever ask him that question?

    All you need to know about Cain is he's a former lobbyist....even slimier than a politician, imo.

    Your wrong on that fat stuff. I didn't state it, because I could careless less if people thought I was a racist. I never like Cain because he was a black. Rather I liked him because of his business expertise and 999 plan.

    So go eat another twinkie!

    GOP gods have not picked Romney just yet. And Romney would be a great candidate. He would be 1000 fold better than what we have now!
