Herman Cain is unfit to become president
The article “Spotlight glares on Herman Cain” in the Oct. 23 print edition of AnnArbor.com is a perfect example of how Herman Cain is far from fit to become the next president of the United States. The article summarizes the public mistakes Cain has made when it comes to articulating his viewpoints on social, economic, and public policies. It also shows that when Cain’s positions are challenged, he runs for the hills.
In the past few weeks, Cain has made some interesting comments on race, demonstrating how truly unfit he is to represent all Americans in our countries highest office. Your article covered Cain’s comments on building an electric fence along the boarder to kill illegal immigrants, but this isn’t the only time he has made insensitive racial comments. Cain, who is also a Baptist minister, has been quoted as saying that he would never appoint a Muslim to his cabinet or to a federal judge’s post. He said this because he believes there is a “creeping attempt” to ease Sharia law and the Muslim faith into our government.”
Mr. Cain may be very successful in the private sector, but since he’s never held public office, what make him think he knows anything about running our country? Cain’s “9-9-9” tax plan is an example of how little he knows about domestic policy. Reducing corporate tax rates to 9% and taxing all sales by 9% in this economy, is a terrible idea. It shows that Cain embraces a “top down” approach to economic policy, which hurts American families and is the very same economic philosophy that triggered this rescission in the first place.
Out of all the GOP candidates running for president, Herman Cain has got to be the most unelectable. Just when you think the Republican Party has emptied it huge bag of bigoted crazies, Cain comes rolling out like the last quarter to a working person’s name.
When will GOP candidates stop pandering to its small, isolated base and turn their attention to the real issues like energy independence, creating jobs for Americans, and finding a long-term solution to the debt crisis.
Mr. Cain and his GOP friends have shown they have no interest in moving America forward and are only interested in keeping its citizens divided and arguing over petty issues.
