For a guy with a degree in math, Herman Cain has a remarkably poor grasp of elementary logic and the concept of contradiction. This is perhaps more evidence that Herman Cain is now possessed by the Devil and is therefore the Antichrist, since he displays no aptitude for his former ability to use mathematical reasoning. For example, Cain has claimed that, "Our Constitution guarantees the separation of church and state". Yet Cain sees no problem with publicly funding "prayer in schools", or giving them the ability to "display the Ten Commandments", and he wants to make sure that "under God" remains in the Pledge of Allegiance. He even has no problem with legislators being "sworn in" using the Holy Bible.
However, this apparent generosity does not extent to the Koran. He had a fit when Keith Ellison was sworn in as a member of Congress using the Koran. Furthermore, he thinks the people of Murfreesburo, Tennessee should be able to vote to ban construction of a Mosque. So much for wanting to get government off our backs, like he claims in his 999 plan. In fact, he told Chris Wallace, "That’s not discriminating based upon religion", though presumably, a community of Muslims voting to ban the construction of a Baptist church would be "crucifying Jesus all over again".
By the way, did you hear that Cain thinks that Liberals killed Jesus. Yep. He wrote in redstate.com that a, " liberal court found [Jesus] guilty of false offences [sic] and sentenced Him to death", even though liberals don't believe in capital punishment, and he acknowledges that Jesus "was not read any Miranda Rights". Where was the ACLU when Jesus needed them? Probably defending Barabbas or something. Oh, and it's also not discriminating on the basis of religion that Cain says that he would refuse to have any Muslims in his cabinet in the nightmare scenario of him actually becoming president.
He was for building an electric fence to keep out Mexican before he declared it to be a joke, and then said actually he was NOT joking. He did say that "America needs to get a sense of humor", though, especially so they can learn to laugh about things that he says he was totally NOT joking about.
On the topic of abortion he says, "As to my political policy view on abortion, I am 100% pro-life. End of story," and yet when asked if he would support a legal ban on women having abortions he says, "That's her choice. That is not government's choice." He then clarifies his statement by saying, "No, abortion should not be legal.". Clear as mud, isn't it?
It just goes on and on. Cain says, "If you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself." Unless, of course you feel like blaming "the failed policies of the Obama administration" for trying to fix the economic collapse that Wall Street is totally NOT at fault for causing, and that you should be blaming yourself for.
You got all that. Good, because the Hermanator (yes, he actually calls himself that) is just getting started. If he were our president he would rack up more misstatements of fact and errors in logic in the first 100 days of office than George W. Bush achieved in 8 years. Perhaps the 999 in his plan is referring to his goal of reaching 999 contradictions by Christmas of this year. It think that's one plan that he's actually capable of implementing.
