Romney promises to fire a bunch of people, loot the pension, and return massive profits to ‘job creators’, just like back in the Bain days

Romney touts fiscal plan, avoids fray on Iowa trip http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2011/11/07/national/a122004S28.DTL&type=health

During the Iowa stops, he tested an update of his standard campaign speech, incorporating the new economic policy he proposed last week. In it, Romney pledges to cut $500 billion from the federal deficit in his first four years in office.

In Davenport, he listed the National Endowment of the Arts, National Endowment for Humanities, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and Amtrak as programs that may be cut or eliminated under a Romney administration.

“I think it’s time for programs that we like but we simply can’t afford to be stopped or to be cut back and make it on their own,” he said, prompting applause. “And I’m going to do that.”

Every one does understand that “cutting spending” translates to “firing people”, right?

Looks like 2012 is shaping up to be a contest between a venture capitalist and a community organizer.

What are you in the mood for, America?

HOWTO: Get a job in Herman Cain’s America

http://m.cbsnews.com/blogsfullstory.rbml?feed_id=0&catid=57319854&videofeed=36 http://m.cbsnews.com/blogsfullstory.rbml?feed_id=0&catid=57319854&videofeed=36

“Just admit what you did. Admit you were inappropriate to people. And then move forward. America is in a horrible turmoil as we all know. We need a leader who can set an example which exemplifies the standards of a good person and moral character. Mr. Cain, I implore you, make this right. So that you and the country can move forward and focus on the real issues at hand,” Bialek said. She said she was let go from the National Restaurant Association’s Educational Foundation in the summer of 1997 and asked to meet him for coffee a month or so later in Washington, to ask for his assistance with her job search. She said she booked herself a room at a hotel two blocks from the White House and when she checked in, it was upgraded to a suite by Cain. They went to dinner at an Italian restaurant and after dinner Cain made unwanted advances toward Bialek in the car. When she asked what he was doing, she said he responded by rhetorically asking her: “You want a job, right?”

I’m not sure that’s the kind of “job” she had in mind.

Cain: “Government politics” root of sexual harassment problem

Herman Cain Says Wife Gloria Cain Took Controversy ‘Harder Than I Did’ (VIDEO) – The Huffington Post http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mobileweb/2011/11/06/herman-cain-gloria-cain_n_1078989.html

I am in it to win it,” Cain told Rivera. “And far as we’re concerned, these allegations aren’t going anywhere. I mean people might make up some more stuff. We are in it to win it. And here’s one other thing. Last week,in the middle of this fire storm, we have had the best fundraising week in the history of this campaign. The American people are sick of government politics.”

Does this stuff makes sense to anyone?   How is someone abusing their authority for sexual favors ‘government politics’?   What does that even mean?

And now you know why he’s never held any political office

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A fourth woman to accuse Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment planned to detail allegations against him in New York on Monday in what could be a fresh blow to Cain’s 2012 White House bid.

The woman alleges she was sexually harassed by Cain “when she sought his help with an employment issue” when he was head of the National Restaurant Association in the mid-1990s, her lawyer, Gloria Allred, said in a statement.
