You are speaking in every media venue that will have you, and you are running not just for any office, but for the most powerful office in the country, possibly in the world. You have a duty, if you wish to be considered for candidacy to FIND THE DAMN FACTS before you form or express an opinion. Shame on you and on those who stupidly and ignorantly support you without those facts.
Being Gay is a choice?
No. Here is the response from gays within your own party, Herman, the Log Cabin Republicans (my emphasis added- DG):
But better than I could point out Cain's other inconsistencies and hypocrisies and failures to base his position on facts (or reason), and there are MANY of them is.......who else, but the inimitable satirists on the Daily Show:
For Immediate ReleaseLog Cabin Republicans to Herman Cain: We Can Show You the Science
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Indecision 2012 - Rising Cain|
I think this one might be my favorite though, of all of the many inconsistencies and fact-free claims of Herman Cain:
I was particularly struck by Cain's observations, about 6 minutes into the interview, that tries to argue that Hank Williams Jr. did not intend to make a comparison between Obama and Hitler because he did not name Obama specifically. Williams in the interview makes it very clear that he is referring to a specific event and specific people, including Obama. Further, he references Obama by name in other parts of that same interview as the person to whom he refers. This is not just being disconnected from fact and reality, it is intellectually dishonest.
Don't even get me started on all the problems with his 9-9-9 economic proposals for which Cain is reluctant to provide any names for consultants. That is a joke, and not a very funny one. It is not a seroius economic proposal, except perhaps in the mind of Herman Cain. Or.......Herbert Cain.
