GOP presidential frontrunner Herman Cain has been touting his 9-9-9 tax plan for months. The only problem with his plan is that it would lower taxes for the rich while raising taxes on the poorest of the poor. Media scrutiny has Cain scrambling to change the 9-9-9 plan to appear more humane ... but it's too late. We already know where his heart is.
While I still think Obama is the best hope for this country, I am disappointed by the number of times he has compromised his principles. I know that compromise is necessary in any democracy, but sometimes compromise comes at too great a cost. He has been bending over backwards to find common ground with the GOP and they have just laughed in his face. Meanwhile, the poor (especially minorities) continue to suffer while the rich get richer, the wars continue and Gitmo is still open for business. Now that the campaign has started again he seems to have found his voice again. I just hope it lasts.
