Back in late March possible presidential candidate Herman Cain (Georgia, U.S.), stated that he would not bring any Muslims into his cabinet. This interview can be seen by clicking HERE. Today Cain does an a 180 on us and clearly lies about what he did say in the past interview. How disappointing.

Herman Cain: Muslim comments ‘misconstrued’
Herman Cain wants to correct the record: He would consider a Muslim for his cabinet or as a federal judge if he’s elected president.
Cain’s clarification comes two months after he initially said he wouldn’t have any Muslim appointees, stoking controversy and criticism from a leading Muslim advocacy group.
“That statement is not what I said. It has been misconstrued,” Cain told Glenn Beck on his radio show Tuesday.
Asked in March if he would consider putting a Muslim in a top position, the Atlanta businessman told the liberal blog Think Progress he wouldn’t.
“And here’s why: There’s this creeping attempt, there’s this attempt to gradually ease Sharia law and the Muslim faith into our government.”
In the appearance on Beck’s radio show, Cain admitted that he responded to the question hastily.
“I immediately said – without thinking – ‘No, I would not be comfortable,’” he said. “I did not say that I would not have them in my cabinet. If you look at my career, I have hired good people regardless of race, religion, sex gender, orientation and this kind of thing.”
Mr. Cain I must say, I just watched your original interview twice, and you are a terrible liar. It is clear what you said, and you should have stuck to that!
Side note: This reminds me of when the NY Daily News contacted me about an interview that was supposed to be about a proposed Mosque in Brooklyn. However when they called me most of the interview was about comments I made on this site. Instead of backing down and making excuses for what I said, I told them I know what I said and I am sticking to it. They never did run the interview. The moral of the story is: It is more important to stay true to yourself, than to try and please everybody. Stick to your principals my friends!
