Okay, so that’s not a ringing endorsement, but it’s the best I can manage right now (yes, I’m still wishing that Paul Ryan would run, what can I say?). Now, my pick is not the conventional candidate, but aside from a couple of silly comments/poor question-answering (on the Right of Return and on the Second Amendment actually being a states’ rights issue), he’s been really solid and is getting better in every debate, every day.
Cain’s recent landslide in the Florida straw poll shows that there is a real hunger for a conservative candidate in this race (everyone’s saying that, but I think it’s truer, deeper, and far more significant than “everyone” thinks), but more than that, the reaction from both Fox News and the alphabet propagandist media has, frankly, ticked me off. How dare they–how. dare. they–dismiss not only Mr. Cain but the entire Florida straw poll voter base? If I hear one more talking head blather on about how this is about Romney or that other total loser Perry, my head will explode. If it were merely a comment on the big government, status quo phonies, then why Mr. Cain and not Mr. Santorum? (we know why not Mrs. Bachmann, she’s done) Santorum is, arguably, a more conventional pol in terms of electability, so why did the Florida straw poll voters overwhelmingly (and it was a huge victory, he got more than twice the votes of the distant second, Rick I’m Doing Everything for the Greater Good Perry, and pathetic third, Mittens I’m a great big progressive phony Romney) select Mr. Cain?
Cain is a business leader, he’s disgusted (as disgusted as we are) with this administration, he’s got ideas for turning the economy around, he will lead the repeal of the ObamaCare monstrosity (don’t believe for a second that an executive order can “repeal” any or all of it, that’s not how laws are made–or unmade), he has a good head on his shoulders, he’s lived the American Dream, and the man loves this country. No doubt about that, none at all. None of the above can be said about the which way’s the wind blowing duo who are supposedly “frontrunners.” Mittens Smarmy Liar McRomney and Rick If You Don’t Agree With Me, I’ll Insult You Perry may love America, but I don’t think, for one second, that they would be capable of putting America first. They’re about them, their power, their superiority, them and their cronies. We have that now.
Now, it has to be said that Cain is not the best speaker, and that he sometimes loses his train of thought, but good grief, did you see that horror show “attack” on Mittens I Love Government Mandates Romney by Rick Parents Are Stupid Perry gave? Shudder. Have you heard BO’s bizarre, grasping, hate-filled rants of late? I think the guy’s unhinged and would probably benefit from a nice stay at a quiet “recovery” center for the emotionally- and psychologically-unstable. Cain, by comparison, is a rhetorical magician. And he’s getting better, less hesitant (and thank God he doesn’t ramble around and erm, duh for ages or insult and attack the American people), more confident.
As we all know, the only way that BO will win next year is if he convinces enough of the American people that everyone (except them) is a RAAAAAACIST who hates Americans and wants everyone to be poor and oppressed (which is actually his own agenda, anyway). And his useful idiots are stampeding to his “cynical political ploy” that calls for racial and class division. The once-lofty, “there are no red states, there are no blue states, only the United States of America” rhetoric is now, whiny-pants desperation: If you love me, you’ll hate the racists who hate me, you’ll hate the near-majority of Americans who don’t believe in the Goracle’s AGW claims, you’ll hate Americans who succeed in the free market, you’ll hate the Jews, er janitors, and you’ll take off your slippers and stop whining. Wow. That’s some shift, huh? And the numbers show that Americans see it. And reject it, along with BO’s failed presidency. Personally, I hope he keeps raging around America, screaming about how everyone (except him) sucks, and how he pretty much hates us all. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Mr. Cain’s love for America and the America people, his desire to get us back on the path to prosperity and excellence is a welcome, and I mean really really welcome, change. Cain will not only appeal strongly to the conservative base, especially the TEA Party, but his American success story, strong religious beliefs, and desire to ensure equality for all will appeal to a lot of minorities who are, understandably, miffed that their ’08 pick has done nothing to help this country and everything to destroy it, including their own circumstances. If you aren’t too sure about that “999” plan of his, please visit our fellow patriot, the tireless defender of liberty Nice Deb and read up on it, watch the video.
So what will the demoncrats do to undermine Herman Cain? Well, they’re already doing the “oreo” thing, insisting that he’s some kind of brain-washed, “lawn jockey” puppet of the Koch brothers (no links to lunatic fringe leftists). Or something. But the best thing to do is stamp that race card “expired” and ignore it. We know, as do the dem strategists, that the TEA Party is not racist, and should care less about the mindless minions who blindly believe whatever political ploy they’re fed. The only other thing they may use is Cain’s obvious understanding of the threat of radical Islam. Again, best to ignore that crap, too. All in all, there’s not much they can say. He’s not got any political experience, but then, neither did BO, at least not to speak of. No foreign policy experience? My God, anyone would do better than BO. In case no one’s noticed, the entire world is on the brink of another world war, and we can thank BO’s utter incompetence and half-baked, naive ideology for that.
Of the people running, I think Herman Cain has the best chance not only of beating BO, our first objective, but of actually doing something to turn this nightmare around. Slap Marco Rubio in the VP slot, and it’s a done deal.
