With regard to Cain, I think there is a basic level of general knowledge one should possess when vying for the highest office in the land. Cain obviously doesn't meet that criteria. We are not talking in depth knowledge either just a basic understanding of large scale issues. No prep should have been required for this question.
YouTube - Herman Cain thinks Palestinians entitled to right of retun
Good to see everyone is talking about Herman Cain. And you know what is really interesting, the T-Party likes him. How about that?
But beyond that, why was it OK for GW to hand over the Golan Heights to Hamas, and now it is not OK for Obama? Why is it wrong for Obama to advance the US position of 35 years? Is there a fear that Obama will succeed where GW had another failure?
Come to think of it, why is it OK that Hamas is even in charge in Palestine? Oh yeah. GW arranged it. It was another of GW's ooops moments.
"There is no gain in arguing with a poo flinging monkey. While his
gibbering and raucous cries of victory may seem obnoxious in your ears
as you walk away, he will soon be quietly sitting behind his bars again
and licking his own feces off his fingers as you carry on with your day."
All good socialists have villas in Southern France. That's not the point.
I fail to see how this is a huge blunder. I think Obama's blunder to "Joe the Plumber" was much, much, worse but it didn't stop him from being elected.
"The long run is a misleading guide to current affairs. In the long run we are all dead." - John Maynard Keynes (admits his philosophy is not viable)
Anyone who thinks that handing the Golan over to a terrorist organization---dedicated to the destruction of Israel, is going lead to peace needs to step away from the crack-pipe. And I don't care if it's Abraham Lincoln who thinks it. I don't know what's behind this persistant bit of cognitive dissonance. Perhaps it's something they teach people in those Ivy League schools.
At any rate, I'm not seeing where Herman Cain was 'more wrong' on this issue than either Bush or Obama.
You might hope to keep your insurance plan, your doctor, your premium, and your deductible, but Obamacare is going to change all of that for you.
Basically nothing is going to change until the countries ideology changes as a whole.
