Dear God, How Much More?

I thought I was finished writing about and off Herman Cain as a real candidate for the Presidency. I am wrong:

In an interview with CBN’s David Brody, Cain responded thusly to a pro-life question:

Brody: Are you for some sort of pro-life amendment to the Constitution that in essence would trump Roe v. Wade?

Cain: Yes. Yes I feel that strongly about it. If we can get the necessary support and it comes to my desk I’ll sign it. That’s all I can do. I will sign it.

??????… I guess we are in for more clarifying remarks. Even I am dimly aware that the President can’t do a damn thing about a Constitutional amendment. If we are to believe that the stupidest campaign wins, it’s neck and neck between Bachmann and Cain. If the money game wins, you get Mitt. The GOP is in tremendous danger of putting the wrong fool out on the stump. I give Cain a few more days, maybe end of this week to gaffe himself into obscurity. It’s Romney by a nose.

The Liars’ Club

Just so we are clear that Mitt Romney will say anything to get elected, here’s this:

As several leading Republican presidential candidates embrace a flat tax as a core campaign position, one contender stands out in not doing so: Mitt Romney, who has a long record of criticizing such plans and famously derided Steve Forbes’s 1996 proposal as a “tax cut for fat cats.” 

Lately, though, his tone has been more positive. “I love a flat tax,” he said in August.

This fucker is impossible to pin down. Thank goodness someone at the Times has a decent memory. Perhaps Mitt is looking in his rearview and seeing that Mr. Pizza is closer than he appears. He should have more courage, ignore others’ positions and run on his record, but what we see seems to show what Mitt truly is-an empty-suit by definition that will say just about anything he needs to say in order to win this fucking nomination. He’ll get the nod, but Obama is going to kick the shit out of him with aplomb. There will be no shortage of ammunition for the President to use. Expect flip-flop sales to spike.
