I am thoroughly p-oed by the sensationalism and the insanitry of Amrican present political shinanigans.Does nobody ever consider what this does- and already has- in the truly democratic Western countries outside the Divided States?
Sadly the scientific evicende is overwhelming and Mr. Cain is just another liar trying to deny reality. Mainstream science is not wrong, human activity is the source code of climate chaos. nasa is not misleading us. NOAA is not misleading us. Get with it, Cain is a liar! End of story
Let me just say I am appalled and astonished as an African – American that Mr. Cain would make such a comment. His comment I feel would insinuate that he is the only person walking around with a lick of intelligence. How dare he the unmitigated gall of him. If he was elected president his statement is evidence that he would be just an Uncle Tom puppet for the Republicans.
Absolute proof that this crop of Republican candidates for the presidency will say anything, fabricate any story or phony statistic, skew the truth, inflame the masses, berate opponents and insult the public's intelligence with no concern for truthfulness, accuracy, substance, integrity, or character to gain votes. By even conceptualizing such a ridiculous and exaggerated idea, Cain has shown himself to be a man of little integrity or character. So to have others in the Republican presidential circus. He is not alone. Just newly identified.
Put Cain and Bachman/and or Palin on the same ticket and they walk away with the election.They have more brains and moxey than all the rest of them put together.I don't care about color,I just want somebody with brains and guts to get this country back on track.Jim Thomas Phx. Az.
Nobody's brainwashed into thinking anything and we're a free thinkin American country all in this economic jam together. How will Cain create jobs if elected President ?
Mr. Cain's comment was totally off-based, although he was entitled to it. I am an African-American who does not vote left or right. I vote for the individual whom I feel will do the best job contingent upon a list of criteria and not because of party loyalty. Mr. Cain, I think that you will do a great job as governor of Alaska and not the President of the United States of America.
