Cain and Romney. 2 peas in a pod.
If money were the solution to all problems, our kids would all be Rhodes Scholars.
“did not find Cain’s name on the list of donors to the PAC.”
He's certainly open enrollment...

You are a blithering idiotic child. No one said money was the solution to all our problems, but it damned sure helps in many cases. But that’s not the point. The point is you denigrated someone using their own money as a way to support a cause. That shows a liberal redistributive socialist mindset about money and property, which is to show a total disrespect for the foundational principles of our nation.
I never denigrated your blockading of a clinic, but I’ll tell you this. Any action or ability is defined by how many people are able to do it. Any dolt can blockade a clinic - proven here - but very few can accumulate wealth and then give it away to good causes.
You are a Mike Huckabee socliast - which is to say you are a pro life liberal.
He's successful, but not "very successful". He got his company back to profitability by cutting the stores that lost money. He never grew the business, nor did he increase revenues, during the 10 years he was in charge. He lost market share, going from 5th to 8th, and by the time he left the company entirely, it was 11th. That's not "very successful" -- 6 pizza company executives were more successful. And at least one of them who passed Cain's company got fired for not performing well enough.
And a CEO IS a dictator. Cain ruled Godfather's as a dictator, he made decisions and people carried them out. That's one of the big fallacies of saying a person who ran a private company has experience for PResident -- he answered to nobody, he was his own boss, and what he said is what happened.
I have no idea why he signed the pledge, my guess is people were confused as to why a guy running for president insisted that the President couldn't advance the pro-life cause.
You mean like these two amigos?
But he’s 100% pro-life!!
Then why did LifeNews report it in a way that gives Cain all the credit?
I Like Him. I’m a Perrybacker. He’s Seasoned, He’s Teady To Lead.
We’re not going to let the media pick OUR candidate. Principles, not poll numbers. Well, the Cain folks might be saying that pretty soon as well, or else they’ll all be supporting Gingrich since he’s got such good-looking poll numbers now.
The comments from you and Marty denigrating money, business success and spouting class warfare talking points proves that you are both economic populists liberals.
Your quibble with Cain over life is a matter of tactics and strategies, but you are argue the property question with a mindset that is loathe to our very principles. That’s not a matter of tactics or strategy, that is a hatred of our very free market system coming through and a jealousy of those successful in it.
Might I refer you to the Daily Kos and to the Huffpo. They share your views.
I like Perry too. I am worried about how many of his supporters have a disdain for the free market, for success in it, and for the ability to invest those successes into causes.
Very disturbing. Must be Mike Huckabee followers looking for a home.
I agree that fetal pain legislation is not a substitute for other pro-life legislation, but I fail to see why it is a bad thing to have a law that says you can’t inflict pain on the unborn.
I support fetal pain legislation as an incrementally better thing than what we have today, while we work toward the goal.
If you’ve never given him a first look why do I see you on a good majority of Cain threads? What is it you gain? People are going to decide for or against a candidate (and maybe even change their minds more than once) based on their own ability to assess the merits of a candidate.
No one is going to change his or her mind based on your opinion. You aren’t smarter or possess anymore common sense than anyone else here. I’ve seen you state the same thing over and over again. People who are staunch supporters of any of the candidates are going to require something more than freepers (who claim to not ever considered a particular candidate) to change their mind.
The reason we all support our particular candidate is because of the criteria we deem important. We’re all here because of our conservative values and probably agree on on more than we disagree with, except for the candidates at this point in the process. We’ll all get behind the CONSERVATIVE nominee when it all shakes out so what’s the point? I just don’t get it. There’s qualities & positions I like in all the candidates (except Romney, Paul & Huntsman...well Romney & Huntsman have great hair) and other qualities I’m not wild about. I think most reasonable do.
But I wouldn’t hold it against him that he was paid to be their spokesperson. I presume he wouldn’t have done so if he didn’t believe in their message.
Thanks for the links, I tried to explain that (I think after you did, because I’m running behind in the reading), but didn’t include links.
The media isn’t responsible for Perry being in the single digits. He did that all by his lonesome.
Somebody landed a plane at an executive airpark in the area last night and fled. When deputies found the plane, it was loaded with marijuana.
YOu do know that the money was PAC money, that Cain wasn’t listed as a donor, and that his organization was listed as an EXPENSE to the PAC, which implies he was a paid spokesperson?
Yes, he was the spokesperson for an ad campaign urging blacks to keep their babies, and that is a good thing, and whenever we discuss it, that is the one thing that people can mention that he has done.
But don’t try to trick people into thinking he spent his own money.
Yeah saw that too.
They are getting more and more brazen.
That is true. Perry advocated, got passed, and signed a bill requiring ultrasounds before abortions in Texas.
But we did save some kids in our day by picketing. It discourages women who already had doubts, and gives support to mothers who are being forced to abort by the fathers or their parents, which happens all too often while the hypocrits shout “pro-choice”.
