Bachmann Rips Cain, Says He’s “Inconsistent”

In an interview with Scott Hennen that will air on Monday, Rep. Michele Bachmann ripped Herman Cain saying he’s “inconsistent.” And given the examples she cites, it’s hard to disagree.

People are looking for an adult in the room. I came from below poverty to becoming a federal tax lawyer and a job creator.

We can’t be fooled again. We’ve put so many people in office that have disappointed us. People will have no surprises with me. I’m a proven actor. …

I think the real problem is how inconsistent he’s bee on issue. Now this is significant. There has been 10 instances in the last month where he’s changed his positions on significant issues. On the issue of pro-life he said the government shouldn’t intervene to protect life and then he switched and said ‘no they should.’ He wasn’t for the marriage amendment, then he said he was. Then he said that he would allow the terrorists to go out of Guantanamo Bay. In other words he would release the terrorists. Then he changed his mind and said ‘no.’ He just said this week that China was developing a nuclear weapon. They’ve had one for 47 years. He said that 999 would be equitable and fair then he changed it to 9-0-9 after people called out his errors.

This has gone on with at least 10 different issues…10 different issues he’s been inconsistent. That’s what the real issue is with Herman Cain’s campaign. The fact that he’s switched his positions when he found out that they weren’t acceptable by the people who were voting. That should really give people cause. Everyone loves him, who doesn’t he has a great personality, but this is the leader of the free world we’re talking about. We’ve in very dangerous times when we’re talking about our national security and we’re in very dangerous times economically. We need to know that our president of the United States is going to go in there and do bold things and know what they’re talking about and be consistent. That’s what I bring that no other candidate brings. That’s why I am set apart and that’s why we can’t settle.

      Bachmann is damn idiot – but the GOP is far from a joke when compared to the Dem’s. What an idiot response. She gets many things wrong – because she’s completely stupid and certainly don’t support because of it.

    Michelle would certainly know about “inconsistent”, just go through a stack of her public statements from the last 5 years.

  • splined

      Has there ever been a presidential candidate yet that is perfect?  Michele Bachmann lacks perfection as do all gop candidates.  Michele Bachmann however has a history of accomplishments that demonstrate her adherance to conservative values.  Michele Bachmann’s history is not a record on flip flopping on critical conservative issues which has been well demonstrated by both  Mitt Romney and Herman Cain.

      Michelle flipflops like a fish on hot pavement. Add to that she is a career tax lawyer and civil service wonk.  I liked much she had to say, then i did the research beyond her campaign storyboard, no thanks, make her, and Luap Nor, Special Prosecutors aimed at the Federal Government and its massive malfeasance. Neither are fit to be President.

    The only two choices you on the extreme right really have are Bachmann and Santorum. I don’t understand why they are not polling better. I read this blog everday, and I know that all real Americans agree with the extreme right, so please explain why they are not polling at above 5% of Republican voters?

    • Neiman

      1. What about Gingrich, is he a Lefty? I think he may rise to the top very soon and get the nomination.
      2. Define extreme by some objective standard.
      3. What makes someone on the Right – Extreme, at what exact point?
      4. Money is the lifeblood of politics and the people with money tend to shy away from anything that threatens the more stable middle ground.

      On the other hand, it is interesting that conservatives are not supporting Bachman and Santorum and are in love with Cain at the moment, but I think they would say that despite the media attacks, Cain is a genuine conservative.

      • http://realitybasedbob.sayanythingblog.com/ realitybasedbob

        Old Pal, was Mr. Cain being a genuine con when he supported TARP?

        Herb Cain in his own words:

        The actions by
        the Treasury are a win-win for the taxpayer. But the mainstream media
        does not get brownie points for reporting win-win solutions for the
        taxpayers. Their focus is doom and gloom.
         
        These actions by the Treasury, the Federal Reserve Bank and the actions
        by the Federal Depositors Insurance Corporation (FDIC) are all intended
        to help solve an unprecedented financial crisis. Unlike steps taken
        prior to and during the Great Depression, these actions have a high
        probability of success.

          Well a horrible morning to you Gay Bob, I see your father Satan has let you out of hell to spread his lying filth here at SAB today. You are his son, his spitting image, he is so proud of you and for the many souls you are leading into hell for him.

          No conservative, not not even a damned (I use the word with specificity) liberal is perfect, they are ALL capable of making wrong judgments that oppose their core beliefs. Neither party has the ideal candidate, the perfect man, just look at the Democrats running from your Messiah Obama, knowing he may cause them to be defeated, even if Barry is reelected, because he ALONE has brought this country to the edge of the economic abyss, making us into being not wholly unlike Greece..

            If you don’t know why you don’t support Santorum, the one and only true red con in the race, just say so.

          • Neiman

            Those demons possessing your life and your advanced, incurable ADD are really operating in and through you today Gay Bob at warp speed. I have NOT said whom I support or do not support, it is none of your damned business. I only ask questions and make observations about particular points of interest to me. I can assure you I will not vote for your Messiah and Satan’s anointed minister Mahdi Obama, only a suicidal, complete moron <- well than means you, would vote for that lying crud.

        And a quick follow up question: what religion is Newtie today?

        • Neiman

          1. I am not your pal, you most everlastingly damned child of hell – Gay Bob. It saddens me to point out your everlasting fate, I wish it were different; but absent an exorcism, repentance and a new spiritual birth in Christ, your fate is sealed; and it will be more terrifying than your worst nightmares, it will be conscious torment forever and ever without end, like a constant burning in a fire billions of times hotter than the Sun, but without end.

          2. You do NOT know whom I support or do not support, it is all lies all the time from you Gay Bob.

          3. I did NOT speak to Bachman’s, Santorum’s or Gingrich’s religion, only their general conservative political credentials. I know with your being consumed by the demons in you and your extremely advanced Attention Deficit Disorder, you find it absolutely impossible to ever stick to the subject of any thread or comment. That is what you and your father in hell prefer, change the subject, misdirect people to fight on your lying ground, but you both lost out today.

            Which one do you support?

            If it’s not Santorum, the one and only true red con, are you going to eat a sheet sandwich with your buddy Big 180 again?

            Now I have answered your questions, as usual you have not answered any of mine,  nor have you been able to rise above your demons and ADD; and you are thereby highjacking another thread with your filth. Go away, your father in hell is calling you home.

    Mr. Cain is not a true conservative. Listen to Steve Deace out of DesMoine explain the facts.  Mr. Gingerich certainly is not either considering his rabid support for ethanol.

    • Neiman

      There is no such thing as a pure conservative or liberal, looking for ideological purity is a recipe for an election disaster. Also, when you reach so called purity in either party, you get to the fringes and non-electability with Independents and Moderates. So, who is a true conservative? Generally limited government, lower taxes and a strong tendency towards family/moral values and that is all in the eye of the beholder. You guys throw out anyone that supports those family/moral values, they must be for murdering children in the womb (litmus test), be for high taxes for anyone that dares work hard and succeed and they must mostly support the Nanny State.

  • Dr.

    To all – Ron Paul is the only true candidate. To deny this is to deny reality. To deny him your support only provides the path of continued corruption, continued failures, continued fraud (ALL of them are frauds – in both parties) and complete destruction of this nation. This is not opinion – but fact. Most everyone posting seems to be afraid to look themselves in the mirror and admit this truth because you are all addicted to your chosen flavor of status quo kool-aid. Even Limbaugh agrees – and I have a hard time admitting Limbaugh even said that – but he did recently. It’s pretty simple – you all can sit here and argue in self denial ridiculously about all the status quo candidates who will do absolutely NOTHING to change the course we are on. Grow-up. I’ve been listening to the same GOP/DEM song and dance since Reagan. The end result? Bigger government and less freedom. Period. Again – grow-up. Government is not the solution – it’s the problem. Only one candidate is actually serious about change and is not a complete fraud, partial fraud or flip-flopping bought and paid for candidate – and that’s Ron Paul.

    • Neiman

      A. He could never get elected because he is seen as a grumpy, dyspeptic old man.
      B. He could never get elected because the people do not agree with his isolationist international philosophy, like it is okay with him if those mad men in Iran get nuclear weapons. It will NOT sell.
      C. You Paulites are a turn-off, you are all rabid Libertarians and that is not where America is at this time in history.
      D. Being right on most issues is not good enough, appearance, style, charisma, the ability to sell a message to a wider group of people than his disciples are all absolutely essential to success and your insistence that people accept what you say and submit or die approach is political death for Paul.

          No Gay Bob, you old child molester, we do not agree at all, not one word, as we do not even define words the same way, we are aliens to each other, we speak different languages. We do not now nor will we ever agree on anything.

            I have used this analogy before, on the surface the Mormons and I agree about Jesus, the Holy  Spirit and Salvation; but theirs is a completely different God and Christ, so in reality they are a non-Christian cult and we actually agree on nothing. Same with you, we do not define anything alike, so we agree on nothing.

          • Neiman

            Silly Old GAY BOB, look out for your own soul, you are a self confessed non-Christian and outside of faith in Christ no man shall see God or life, in other words by your own freewill choice you are self-condemned, I would worry about your own demon possessed soul If I were you. Scripture tells us that all who confess their sins to God, who confess Jesus as their Savior and Lord are children of God, I have done all that and by Grace I am by faith a child of God, you sadly Gay Bob are a child of Satan. Please concern yourself with your lost soul first, then dare speak of the Lord. Until then your blasphemies are only adding to your everlasting punishing.

            No Gay Bob,we do not agree about Ron Paul at all, that is a lie.

            I gave you an example of being divided by a common language, I am not responsible that you lack the intellect to understand.

            Still not ready to name your pig god or his/her bible there Gay Bob? Still not ready to confess that every time you call me “Old Pal” that you are lying and your denials later oppose this absolute fact?

          • http://realitybasedbob.sayanythingblog.com/ realitybasedbob

            Old Pal, I agree with you. Ron Paul could never be elected.
            All the rest of you blather is unhinged wild arm swinging down a narrow corridor.

            Why such hate, Old Pal?

          • Neiman

            Psalms 11:5-6, is but one example of how God hates sin and sinners that refuse to acknowledge Christ as their Savior and Lord. In Revelations, as well as other places in Holy Writ, He expresses haterd for those that encourage others in pursuing sexual immorality, as you do with homosexuals, thus leading them from Christ and His Salvation, into hell with you. In Psalms that hatred for violent men would surely include those, like you, that are accessories to our national fetal holocaust.

            I hate the demons that direct your life and your father Satan, I hate all sin, especially my own, but like my Father, I also hate all those that by their lies are not only lost and bound for everlasting, conscious hell, but whom also tell homosexuals they are not engaged in sin and have no need for Christ’s Salvation and healing. Like the Lord, I love all His human creation and desire their salvation and that includes you, no matter how evil you truly are, as I know I am only saved by Grace. Yet,   like my Lord I hate sin and those that counsel others to continue in their sins, wherein they are both destined to lead souls to everlasting, conscious punishing.

            You Gay Bob are a child of hell, you are my enemy because you are the enemy of Christ. I deny that we agree on anything, because I know you and the depth of your lying spirit that, no matter if you say we agree, you don’t really and your only desire is to set traps that you might drag even more souls into hell with you.

            Worry about your own lost and everlastingly tormented soul Gay Bob, you are a self-confessed, self-condemned non-Christian. I have and do confess Christ and am secure in my having eternal life with Him. You just do NOT get it, you are by your own admission NOT a Christian, without Christ you are lost, sentenced to everlasting conscious torments, as no one is saved that will not, in this life, confess Jesus as their only Savior and only Lord. Instead of being obsessed with me, you better look to your own soul before it is too late.

            1. On what basis do you believe you will gain Heaven? Give me the objective, documented source for that belief.
            2. What is the name of your god, what exactly beside the generic name “god,” does he/she use to identify himself/herself from all other falsely called gods?
            3. What religious group do you belong to that claims your god as their own?They must have a name, unless you fear ridicule.

            You will not answer, will you? You never do, you just play hellish games, you are afraid, cowering in fear to defend your beliefs.

    Why does God always have to be injected when a political conversation is going on, also why didn’t Scoot Herman ask Michele Bachmann who provides health care for all those children, and what is the name is that insurance provider…Scott Herman has low credibility  when asking tough questions to any candidate… 

  • George Dolan

    Someone has to pay for it all, insurance, other wise where does she get the money to pay for all that insurance, if she is taking care of those children she must getting some form of payment from somewhere…I think a serious investigation should be done her and her children for proper health care and education…pleas tell me how much does it cost to take care of 30 children she says she is caring for…a lot of mouths to feed…foster care comes with payments…

    Where does responsibility come from when one is caring for 30 children and have time to work in Washington, something is wrong with this picture…and all she claims is against Obama…someone is footing the bill, and someone is not being honest…

    It seems to me know one is looking into the care of those children for health care and education…what is the real truth…
