Cain has been cited as one of the primary "saboteurs" of the 1993/1994 health care plan of President Bill Clinton and then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton:
The Clintons would later blame "Harry and Louise," the fictional c...ouple in the ads aired by the insurance industry, for undermining health reform. But the real saboteurs are named Herman and John. Herman Cain is the president of Godfather's Pizza and president-elect of the National Restaurant Association. An articulate black entrepreneur, Cain transformed the debate when he challenged Clinton at a town meeting in Kansas City, Mo., last April. Cain asked the president what he was supposed to say to the workers he would have to lay off because of the cost of the "employer mandate." Clinton responded that there would be plenty of subsidies for small businessmen, but Cain persisted. "Quite honestly, your calculation is inaccurate," he told the president. "In the competitive marketplace it simply doesn't work that way."·
Great stuff. I did not know much about Herman Cain until 2004 when he ran for the GA senate seat agains’t RINO Johnny Isakson. I was impressed with him and voted for him in the primary. Too bad Isakson won. We are still stuck with him.
We The People are still
in charge of this country!

Yep - they went with an establishment pick in 2004 rather than a true conservative. Let’s hope we don’t make that mistake again in 2012
As I’ve said multiple times, we missed a great opportunity in 2004.
That Clinton was/is a good BS-er. They don’t call him slick for nothing.
