The ultimate bolt out of the blue to the Cain candidacy.

I can’t believe anyone hadn’t reported on this here at RedState.

Good grief!


On the issue of collective bargaining, Cain said he supported the right of public employees to bargain collectively.

“But not collective hijacking. What I mean by that, if they have gotten so much for so many years and it’s going to bankrupt the state, I don’t think that’s good. It appears that in some instances, they really don’t care.”…

In an interview with the Journal Sentinel last month, Cain said that he was “right in the corner of Gov. Scott Walker 100%” in Walker’s battle with public employee unions.

Cain also appeared to be unclear on the issue of collective bargaining as it involves federal employees. Asked if he thought federal employees should have the ability to bargain collectively, Cain said: “They already have it, don’t they?”

Told they didn’t, he said, “They have unions.”

Herman, was your candidacy just a great big joke?  Seriously?  Supporting collective bargaining for public sector employees?

I’m speechless.

I smell a Cain endorsement for Gingrich sometime in the not so distant future.
