Why is what Herman Cain said considered controversial?

Herman Cain May Sneak Up On 2012 GOP Primary Field If He Doesn't Trip Himself Up First

Huffington-Puffington Post/AOL News Service....

They say what Herman Cain said is a blunder.  Listen to what he said and you tell me if it's a blunder:

He was asked Saturday if he would feel comfortable appointing a Muslim to his Cabinet or to a federal judgeship.

"I will not," he said. "And here's why. There is this creeping attempt, this attempt, to gradually ease Sharia law and the Muslim faith into our government," Cain said. "It does not belong in our government. This is what happened to Europe. And little by little, to try to be politically correct, they made this little change. They made this little change. And now they've got a social problem that they don't know what to do with hardly."

Now, if he lived in a world where every time a radical Muslim suicide bomber blow herself up at bus station/train station/open air market/night club, "moderate" Muslims would publicly excoriate the radicals as extremists, then it might be a little "un-PC".  But, as of right now there are very few publicly "moderate" Muslim's and those who do exist are not very forceful.  I assume they are afraid, after witnessing how a Salman Rushdie or a Theo Van Gogh gets treated in the peaceful religion of Islam.

The bottom line is. "Is what Herman Cain said true or false?"  Is say it's true and he ought to be held to that standard - none other.

Victor David Hansen nails it, again....

Our President, the man-child, least qualified person in any room he walks into, is so devoid of leadership ability it makes one wonder how he will ever handle being such a young ex-president in 2013....

President Hamlet 

Victor Davis Hanson Obama is chief executive, and learning, as did Prince Hamlet, that thinking out every possible side of a question can mean never acting on any of them -- a sort of Shakespearean "prison" where "there is nothing either good or bad." Worrying about pleasing everyone ensures pleasing no one. Once again such "conscious does make cowards of us all."

Hamlets, past and present, are as admirable in theory as they are fickle -- and often dangerous -- in fact.

Why do I think the Libyan rebels aren't comforted...

France formally recognises Libyan rebels' authority
France became the first country to formally recognize the rebels’ newly created Interim Governing Council, saying it planned to exchange ambassadors after President Nicolas Sarkozy met with two representatives of the group based in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.

Way to lead Obama!  Of course, when you believe you were elected to manage the decline of the U.S., you probably feel you are showing leadership when you abdicate your role as "leader of the [formerly] free world"....

It's a sad, sad day....
