With NO Grasp Of The Constitution Herman Cain Says He Would Autograph Life Amendment

Cain would autograph life amendment


Herman Cain tried to clean up the running confusion over his position on abortion last night, but in the meantime opened questions about his grasp of the Constitution.

In an interview with David Brody last night, Cain said he'd sign a pro-life constitutional amendment if it crossed his desk as president.

“Yes. Yes I feel that strongly about it. If we can get the necessary support and it comes to my desk I’ll sign it," he said. "That’s all I can do. I will sign it.”

The only problem with that statement? Presidents don't sign constitutional amendments -- they're passed in Congress and then need to be ratified by the states, and the president plays no formal role in the process.

Candidates have in the past pledged to support such an amendment, but it's not clear what signing one would mean.

Wild Thing's comment......

Cain has no clue how government functions or what the president does.

I'm ashamed to watch Cain interviewed. He doesn't know what he is talking about. He is not a bad man I am not saying that, but he is just not the person to be in the most powerful office in our land.

I agree WT. I believe that Cain is really conservative but does not understand how govt. works. Michele Bachmann has the same problem. That is why presidents have staffs and advisors. I would take either Cain or Bachmann in a millisecond over what we have now in the White House.

obama violates The Constitution and presidential protocol daily, not by accident but because he hates The Constitution and it's restrictions on govt.
