Two Ways Herman Cain Is A Typical Republican

Since Herman Cain’s jump in the polls, more information about him is coming out. The Omaha World-Herald looks at his years at Godfather’s Pizza. Bruce Bartlett looks at his tax plan, finding that it cuts taxes on the wealthy and increases taxes on the poor. It sounds like he is in line with current Republican policies of using government to transfer wealth from the poor and middle class to the wealthy. How come conservatives claim taxation is theft when taking money from the wealthy, but not when taxing the poor to give more money to the wealthy?

Cain shows he is a true Republican yet another way, claiming God told him to run for president:

GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain said Monday he didn’t want to run for president, but God called him to join the race.

The Republican candidate told CBN News that’s why he believes “God’s been in this from the beginning.”

Cain said that when he felt God calling him to run for president, he resisted just as Moses did after being called by God to lead the Hebrews out of Egypt.

Like Moses, Cain says he told God, “You’ve got the wrong person. You can’t be talking about me.”

Cain told CBN News that it took a lot of those “conversations with God” to overcome his reluctance to seek the presidency.
