Ace Rips Herman Cain Pretty Good

Posted on | October 19, 2011 | 104 Comments

Remember the whole Gitmo-release thing with Wolf Blitzer yesterday? Ace really didn’t dig that at all:

He literally seems to be making it all up on the fly, and I mean all, so when he’s asked a question like this, all he knows about the situation is literally just that which was contained in the question.

You can read the rest. It’s pretty brutal, and this is the kind of situation — a blunder that exposes him to lacerating criticism from conservatives — that Cain must avoid henceforth if he wants to be taken seriously as a contender.

    Netanyahu’s decision shocked me.  I’m sorry, but his brother must have rolled over in his grave.

    That’s the way the Russians do it.  I knew there was a reason I always had a soft-spot for those folks [the non-Communist ones].

    Actually, I think you just made the case, Pagan, for us putting the pressure on Mrs. Palin to reconsider.

    Allow me to dispute your premise vis a vis Bachmann being a tax attorney being helpful to reform. All working tax attorneys spend their every working moment either trying to exploit the tax code or keeping it from being exploited for personal gain. I doubt many tax attorneys spend much time trying to figure out how to reform it.
