Herman Cain’s move from second tier status to top three contender in the GOP race is great news as clear thinking Americans search for a way out of the worsening Obama administration debacle. Cain is stunning naysayers as he mixes it up with Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, no small accomplishment for a man whose name recognition factor remains very much on the low side. More established names like Michelle Bachman and Rick Santorum might kill for Cain’s position nearer the top.
Like The Jeffersons from 70’s sitcom fame, Herman Cain is movin’ on up. George and Weezie set their sights on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, a “deeluxe apartment in the sky”. Candidate Cain plans on moving, not across town, but across country to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC.
Amen to that, brother! Amen to that!
I first came across Herman Cain about two years ago. He was guest hosting for Rush Limbaugh. Within minutes of listening I knew this was a man I wanted to learn more about. Everything about Cain is impressive. He is living the American dream.
Cain started out poor and forged for himself a life of business success and honor. Herman Cain, a black man, succeeding in racist America. Imagine that. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton must be giddy with joy.
Actually, they are most likely not so overjoyed because poor, black Herman Cain became an American success story without the help of social programs and liberal largess. He used that other method the left tends to ignore. He worked hard, refused to accept defeat and earned his way to the top on his own merits.
One would think that Cain’s childhood memories of drinking from the “colored” water fountain would create a sense of entitlement over that racial injustice. On the contrary, Herman Cain speaks glowingly about his love for a country that can and has changed. Perhaps Michelle Obama could learn something from Cain’s life story.
The timing for this great American business man, columnist and radio talk show host to aim for the presidency is perfect. After almost three years, with no real president in the Oval Office, the vacancy is literally begging to be filled.
Herman Cain is everything Barack Obama is not. Cain is confident, direct and full of passion for America. He is a wealth and jobs creator, a problem solver and his ego is firmly in check. He willingly admits his lack of knowledge in certain areas and has pledged to learn. Would that Obama could do likewise.
Herman Cain is a patriot. He envisions all Americans achieving a level of success and doing so independently. He developed his 9-9-9 economic plan to achieve that goal. Obama would rather America become a third world country where equality is established at the lowest level and Washington controls the money spigot for every citizen. One plan offers financial freedom, personal fulfillment and greater national security. The other is just damned ugly.
Michael Barone, in his Washington Examiner article from last Sunday (Time To Raise Cain To Contender Status), notes that a SurveyUSA poll of Florida Republicans (Sept. 24–27), showed Herman Cain in a statistical tie with Mitt Romney for first place. Not too shabby for a black conservative with no political experience.
Someone should alert Barack Obama. Herman Cain is movin’ on up.
