Cain Channels Reagan
National Review ^ | 10/14/11 | DEROY MURDOCK

Posted on 10/13/2011 9:21:27 PM PDT by Kartographer

Since Ronald Reagan left Washington in 1989, Republicans have yearned for a presidential nominee who could present free-market ideas with passion, energy, and commitment. They have longed for someone who would labor for limited government. And they have sunk into disappointment and simmered in rage as two generations of Bushes surrendered to their patrician instincts by ducking fights and letting the Left bludgeon them until they barely had a cheek left to turn.

Herman Cain embodies the Reagan approach. He is confident, tough, and combative, yet sunny, funny, and buoyant. Cain permanently could demolish the Democrats’ vile, vulgar lie that the GOP is the Vatican of U.S. racism. Those who oppose President Obama are not wrong, misinformed, or misguided; rather they are bigoted, Democrats too often contend. Last month, Rep. Andre Carson (D., Ind.) claimed that pro-tea-party Republicans in Congress want to see blacks “hanging on a tree.”

Barry is going to be all “wee wee’d up”. He wanted to be President Reagan this month.

Notice how they (libs/White House, etc) are REALLLLL quiet about Herman Cain these days, even though he is now the nominal "frontrunner" in a number of GOP polls?

Obongo has not one single freaking thing to say. They have not figured out how to handle this guy, they are still debating how to approach him. It must be giving them the every loving Hershey Squirts down at the White House and at DNC. They certainly cannot be enjoying it at all. Thats my take. Anyone else out there catch that too?

The liberals have painted themselves in a corner with their four years of “racist” BS. I hope Cain keeps the “off the plantation” thing going. That really makes the liberals’ heads explode. I love it!

Thanks for another great thread. Mr. Cain reminds me a great deal of President Reagan. He will mop the floor in a debate against the teleprompter-in-chief.

God always blesses America and sends us the leader we need. Without Obama, we would not have Cain-a beautiful antidote to our sad President.

Reagon would indeed approve. Surely, the GOP elites must see this or are they too blind? Well, I did see three mice in the corner.

He is their worst nightmare opponent, a black Reagan.

I think Zero will be reluctant to attack him directly, but will rely to a great extent on the MSM to lie and distort. There will be a lot of picking out of context what he said in a past radio show or column and trying to portray him as inconsistent or unserious.

If Cain ever gets to the point where the MSM has to cover his stump speeches to a broad television audience, it is game over.

If people liked Palin's VP nomination acceptance speech, wait until they hear the Hermanator give his acceptance speech at the convention.

“I consider Paul Ryan to be one of the brightest minds in Washington, D.C.,” said Mark Block, Cain’s chief of staff, “Mr. Cain looks forward to sitting down with Congressman Ryan.

And we look forward to hearing the results of that meeting.

Perfect opportunity for Cain to reconsider 9-9-9 if he thinks it necessary. "While I remain committed to simplifying our tax code to stimulate the economy, my friend Representative Paul Ryan has made some suggestions for improving the 9-9-9 plan that I am carefully considering..."

The day Cain backs off of 9-9-9 is the day Sarah Palin gets a voice coach.
