"He has a sensitivity to the limits of men knowing Truthtogether with a courage to push those limits in many areas." — a reader
"I came as a Perry fan. . . . It would have taken a lot to shake me. But I changed my mind with that speech."
Instead it was Cain, not known for his religious views, and in fact targeted at the event by the National Organization for Marriage for not having signed a couple of their pledges (the other frontrunners have)...The only person smart enough to not sign one of those weird pledges than can only hurt him in the general election.
Good point. Hence Huntsman's anti-pledge pledge. He only makes two of them.
Huntsman is there to prove that what voters really want is a moderate Republican, because conservatives, be they social of fiscal, are just too distasteful for them.
Here's the video of Cain's speech, if anyone is interested.
I think Jennifer Rubin at the Washington Post gets it right: "[A] very likely outcome is that the anti-Romney fanciers remain divided among Perry, Bachmann, Santorum, Gingrich and Cain. It’s not clear to me yet that Cain, who hasn’t been to Iowa in a month and has yet to address serious faults in his 9-9-9 plan, has the staying power to remain nip and tuck with Romney. (His support is also geographically limited and based among social conservatives, much like Mike Huckabee’s appeal was in 2008.) To do that he’ll need to show some mastery of foreign policy, explain why zero government experience is not a handicap and develop a solid ground and fundraising operation."
