[11.29.2011]

As Herman Cain, once the darling of a sizeable segment of the Republican primary electorate, crashes and burns under continuing revelations of sexual harassment and marital infidelity, another unlikely candidate is rising to the top of the Republican field. Evangelical Christians’ discomfort with Mitt Romney’s Mormonism and his past flirtation with political moderation on such issues like abortion has created new openings for other candidates, and Newt Gingrich is the […]

Republicans Divided Over Support for Torture

[11.15.2011]

On Saturday night, Republican presidential candidates Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman found themselves in an unlikely alliance on an important foreign policy issue: torture. Responding to Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann, both of whom expressed their support for waterboarding (which was banned by the Obama administration in 2009), both candidates emphatically declared that the practice was torture, not an “enhanced interrogation” technique. Paul decried waterboarding as “immoral” and “illegal under […]

Did you celebrate Guy Fawkes’ Day on Saturday (November 5)?

Herman Cain’s New Position on Abortion May Not Resonate With His Base

[11.01.2011]

Herman Cain, who recently found himself the target of criticism from social conservatives for espousing conflicting sentiments about abortion, clarified his position this weekend, saying that he is “pro-life from conception, period.” He added that he opposes abortion even after rape or incest or when a woman’s life is at risk, contradicting previous statements in which he allowed for exceptions in these circumstances. While Cain was being painted as pro-choice, […]
