Liberals quote neocons (whom they claim to despise) when it suits their needs.

Pathetic.

People are entitled to their opinion. O'Reilly has the same opinion as this guy. But that doesn't mean they are right...it's just their opinion. They are as out of touch with the grassroots conservatives as Mitt Romney is. tahey hav ethe same nonsensical notion that a person running fror president just HAS to be a career politico or else he doesn't have the experience needed. It is precisely that way of thinking that will keep this government from changing as it needs to do.

Our government is broken...spending is out of control, and they don't seem to have the answers to stop it. A different approach is needed and people like Kristol and O'Reilly are standing in the way.

I hope Herman Cain weathers the storm and comes out on top. I think he would be good for the country.

I don't care if the Cain campaign doesn't answer O'Reilly's telephone calls.

I don't care if Michael Barone knocks on Cain campaign headquarters in Iowa and no one is there.

I don't care if Fox News analysts think it's terrible if Cain is campaigning in Tennessee when he should be in Iowa.

I don't care if everyone with a National Press Club membership card thinks Herman Cain handled the sexual allegations wrong from a media perspective.

I don't care if Herman Cain's campaign manager smokes a cigarette in a video and it upsets Bob Scheiffer.

What I do care about is this man suggested I pay an income tax and a national sales tax. I'm not voting for Herman Cain.

Has any candidate ever become President who had not been previously in elected office or a military general?

Herman Cain ran for President in 2000 and Senate in 2004. This whole meme that he's "not a career politician" while technically true is intellectually dishonest. The only reason Herman Cain isn't a career politician is because he can't win, not by choice.

Well, that should boost Cain's campaign. Bill Kristol is wrong considerably more often than not.

Heh yeah I was about to say anything Kristol says means the exact opposite will happen. He's the Mr. Mxyzptlk of punditry.

I think we would have to go back centuries for the answer, but it doesn't make much difference. I really don't think he has a snow balls chance in HELL, not because of the scandal which I still think is partially phoney, but his ideas are not what the American public wants to hear and his organization seems to be off base.
