How quickly they do a dhimmi turn when terrorist front group CAIR whines. Herman Cain backpedals on his emphatic statements that he would NOT put any Muslims in his cabinet or in the judiciary.
Well, that finishes Cain for me. If he can’t even take a little heat from CAIR, he can’t deal with terrorism. That, plus the fact that he was clueless as to what FOX NEWS’ Chris Wallace meant when he asked him for his opinion on the “Right of Return” issue. No way is this guy ready for prime time. But I hear Rudy Guiliani may be getting in the game again.
Politico – Herman Cain wants to correct the record: He would consider a Muslim for his cabinet or as a federal judge if he’s elected president. (Yet he said it in two different interviews here):
Cain’s clarification comes two months after he initially said he wouldn’t have any Muslim appointees, stoking controversy and criticism from a leading Muslim advocacy group (CAIR). “That statement is not what I said. It has been misconstrued,” Cain told Glenn Beck on his radio show Tuesday.
Asked in March if he would consider putting a Muslim in a top position, the Atlanta businessman told the liberal blog Think Progress he wouldn’t. “And here’s why: There’s this creeping attempt, there’s this attempt to gradually ease Sharia law and the Muslim faith into our government.”
In the appearance on Beck’s radio show, Cain admitted that he responded to the question hastily. “I immediately said – without thinking – ‘No, I would not be comfortable,’” he said. “I did not say that I would not have them in my cabinet. If you look at my career, I have hired good people regardless of race, religion, sex gender, orientation and this kind of thing.”
