That and it came to light today that FEMA miscalculated (or someone did) and they have enough money after all. This is why these candidates shouldn't jump in with both feet before finding out all the facts. I have nothing against Cain and he sure knows how to keep the others on their toes but I'm not all in for anyone yet. I can't say I really get all the hate aimed at Perry though. If you want information about a candidate you don't use liberal talking points or believe them which it seems to me many have. I figure we'll get it all straightened out in the next year and go from there.
Mr. Cain is exactly the type of business sense to run this country,a very smart man who can get it done
Herman Cain! U.S. Air Force veteran! Former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, with a record of bringing companies up from the edge. Holds a degree in Computer Science. He does have plans, that are easy reading, and make sense. He is for shrinking the size and operation of the federal government.
I admit, when Perry and Romney shot off statistics and other "maybe truths" about each other, at the time of the debate, they could NOT rattle off what they WOULD do, but stated either: "Spend your money and read my book" or "I will have that plan by this weekend". This far along, with that many minutes of my life spent waiting to hear something concrete, I've wasted enough of my life waiting for nothing.
The Good: Get rid of the politics. No one on the "good guy" side should be holding up disaster relief for Americans. Even the Tea Party needs to understand the difference between funding for Obamacare and funding for our neighbors who have been hit with a natural disaster.
The Bad: Gentlemen's agreements and "don't worry about it". He should have said that we need to do the funding now AND NOT forget about the cuts. I think that was a misstatement as it does not fit with his normal message.
I really like Herman Cain as a candidate. He is a businessman without the crazy, nutball ideas that usually accompany the type. (Perot, Paul, etc.) He is basically stating that we do not need to paint with such broad strokes in Washington. Solve the issue without making sweeping acts of lunacy.
Sorry to disagree but there was nothing crazy about Perot. In fact he would fit right in with the Tea Party movement. He also had more courage in his little finger than any liberal politician has in their whole body. His problem was he felt the same way then that we do now about the press and refused to tolerate them. He was ahead of his time by calling them out and people thought that was just plain crazy now we're the ones calling them out and their calling us crazy to.
Wow! Amazing Rshill- I am really glad he was OK after the accident, but perhaps a blessing in disguise then, now that they found the problem! God Bless you guys!!
I am glad for that, thank you Lord! Next time, you need to say something- I'm one of those wacky prayer warrior people ;-) Glad everything went ok.
They will go down right along with the SS Zero, if you look close you may even see Madcow and company on the bridge :)
Yes, but can we really trust Washington to find those offsets later? NO!
I can totally understand Cain's saying they shouldn't play politics, but that's all they've ever done- an important bill needs to be passed, so lets tack a whole lot of spending onto it.
I am sick of it. FEMA does do some good, but it is my experience, with my own family and others I know, that when disasters to strike, it is the community itself which does much to help each other, not the federal government.
People should not have to suffer, I agree, but it is always the federal government involvement which helps the suffering continue.
