The Two Faces of Herman Cain

Another day, another clarification...

The first chinks in the armor of the Cain lie train has occurred and has potentially threatened his "front runner" status. Herman Cain is apparently pro choice. That is a big no no to the God Squad. His exact position is: he is personally anti-abortion but believes it's "not the government's role ... to make that decision". That flies in the face of the Evangelical Christians who believe it's their life's mission to legislate what a woman does with her uterus. Iowa Caucus goers believe foolishly that Roe v. Wade can and must be overturned even after 30 years of unsuccessful attempts to change settled law.

Uncle Ruckus, the dancing fool, put out a statement late in the day on Thursday trying to clarify his position, but he still did not address the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, raising questions about whether he believes in the legal right to abortion despite his strenuous rhetoric in the past claiming to be, in his own words, "pro-life." Because pro-life and pro choice really has to be clarified to those that don't understand what those terms mean. Here is the Republican dilemma. You have to be a nut to get the Republican candidacy but then you can't get elected in the general election.  

Cain said he thought the question he was asked by CNN's Piers Morgan on Wednesday night was "whether that I, as president, would simply 'order' people to not seek an abortion."

"My answer was focused on the role of the President. The President has no constitutional authority to order any such action by anyone. That was the point I was trying to convey. As to my political policy view on abortion, I am 100% pro-life. End of story. I will appoint judges who understand the original intent of the Constitution. Judges who are committed to the rule of law know that the Constitution contains no right to take the life of unborn children," Ruckus continues with his lies, "I will oppose government funding of abortion. I will veto any legislation that contains funds for Planned Parenthood. I will do everything that a President can do, consistent with his constitutional role, to advance the culture of life." There is no government funding for abortion, it's called the Hyde amendment, he's had his wish for over 30 YEARS! Planned Parenthood provides health care for low income women. It's not like there is an abortion factory going on at Planned Parenthood, that's GOP Cluster Fox propaganda used to indoctrinate the weak and feeble minded.

Cain was asked Wednesday evening by CNN's Piers Morgan for his view on abortion in the case of rape. "It ultimately gets down to a choice that that family or that mother has to make. Not me as president, not some politician, not a bureaucrat. It gets down to that family. And whatever they decide, they decide. I shouldn't have to tell them what decision to make for such a sensitive issue," Cain said.

He added a minute later: "I can have an opinion on an issue without it being a directive on the nation. The government shouldn't be trying to tell people everything to do, especially when it comes to social decisions that they need to make."

Cain gave an even more confusing answer to Fox News' John Stossel in July. Stossel asked Cain if there were "any cases where [abortion] should be legal."

"I don't think government should make that decision," Cain said. Moments later he said, "People shouldn't just be free to abort." He added: "Abortion should not be legal."

But asked whether a woman should have an abortion if she is raped, Cain said: "That's her choice. That is not government's choice."

So, the government shouldn't get involved in such a sensitive case? The intent of the Constitution does not order a person to seek an abortion or to not seek an abortion, but what do I know, I just took a class in Constitutional Law. If we don't trust the government to grow jobs, then why do we trust them or really hope they will legislate morality? PICK A SIDE OF THE FENCE AND WALK ON IT! Stop saying silly things like what you really believe Herb, that's an automatic ticket to the electric fence. He's worst than a flip flopper, it's like he has a split personality, is confused or is just counting on the fact that Republican­s are easily distracted by flag-wavin­g, scapegoati­ng & religious mumbo jumbo.

I wonder what the position of these social conservati­ve cavemen would be if  a woman who flies out of the US, got an abortion in a country where they're legal, then flies home again. Has she committed a crime?  Absolutely­, so long as they have committed the crime anywhere on God's green Earth, or even a thousand years from now even when they do it on God's other planets once we've colonized them in perpetuity. Will the government stay out of a girl's private part? Pro-life is an oxymoron for most people that identify themselves as Christians that love life yet they also support the death penalty...­They are simply "Anti-choi­ce"! Republican pro life people have to answer one question: Do they want more government involvemen­t in peoples life? (That way they can tell a woman what to do with her body and repeal any laws giving her choice or power over her own body) Or do they want less government and therefore have no say in what a woman does with her body? They need to make up their minds....r­ight now, they want more government for the things they want to do and less government for the other of us. Which is it Republican, Christian Conservative hypocrites­????  

The Republican­s are speed dating with anyone who can fog a mirror. Each and every one has failed after one or two weeks of scrutiny. The default is Romney, who is going to have one hell of a time getting into a debate with Obama. The guys flops around like a caught fish on a dock.  

What's funny and ironic is that the Pizza Man's undoing will come from a statement that isn't completely insane. It also proves that GOP voters are less sane than Author Herb Cain.

It's OK, Herb, you can go back to singing, dancing, and plugging senseless books, because you won't have the opportunity to control women or the Free World.

Sit Boo Boo Sit. Good Porch Monkey...
