Does the news of Gingrich’s massive campaign staff exodus have something to do with a potential Rick Perry run at Obama?
“Gingrich loses valuable campaign staff as main advisors abandon the ship. Was it a Twitter pic? You don't lose your job over that, no. They realized he had zero chance to win in 2012,” Glenn said.
“The rumor is the advisors now are going to join Rick Perry from Texas. There's no campaign with Rick Perry, is there? Yet...”
“Rick Perry for president. Possible. It is possible. I would hate to lose anybody in the State of Texas that actually gets it.”
“We need Rick Perry. Who is there? To me, Mitt Romney is out. Gingrich is over. Huckabee is not running, I didn't want him. Hermann Cain is a possibility,” Glenn said.
“I have to tell you, Herman Cain, listen what he said yesterday and tell me how he wins. There is a possibility people are so done with political correctness that this doesn't have the power it used to.”
Pat then played audio of Herman Cain saying about homosexuality, “I believe it is a sin. I'm a Bible-believing Christian. I believe it is a sin but some make that choice that. It’s their choice,” adding “I believe it is a choice.”
“That will be touch to overcome. He had a moment on television that I think is going to come and haunt him if he would make it past the primaries,” Glenn said.
Glenn thinks that Democrats will ignore Cain’s comments until after the Republican primaries and then bring them back up to turn him into a hatemonger.
“Let's take his Islamic opinion. He says, I want to have -- I wouldn't have somebody in my cabinet unless I, you know, had some litmus test. I disagree but what does he mean by that?”
Glenn and Pat said that if he is suggesting Muslims take a loyalty oath to the Constitution, then the same should be asked of ALL staff members.
“Give everybody the same question no matter their religious stripe. The fruit of their labor, what does that mean? I will not have anybody Muslim? You are wrong.” Glenn said.
But then they played the initial comments he made, which Glenn felt were more on point. When asked whether he would appoint Muslims to his cabinet, he said, “No, I will not. Here's why. That is this creeping attempt -- there is this attempt to gradually ease sharia law and the Muslim faith in our government. It does not belong in our government. This is what happened to Europe. Little by little, to try to be politically correct, they made this little change, they made this little change. Now they've got a social problem they don't know what to do.”
Glenn agreed that you have to be careful about Sharia Law.
