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.
