Herman Cain To CPAC: 'Stupid People Are Ruining America' (VIDEO)
TPM ^ | 2/12/11 | Jill Rayfield

Posted on 02/12/2011 10:12:38 AM PST by pissant

Former pizza chain CEO, tea partier and potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain closed out CPAC on day two, declaring that "the American Dream is under attack," and that "stupid people are ruining America."

Cain said that the American Dream is being attacked by what he calls "the -ations" -- legislation, regulation, and taxation. He continued that Republicans need to repeal and replace health care reform, and also "throw out" the "messed up tax code" and replace it with a new system.

The "objective of the liberals is to destroy America," he Cain continued, but "if you can get a liberal to engage in an intelligent in the first place, ask them to strip away labels."

Like, for example, Cain said, when liberals call anyone who disagrees with Obama a "racist."

"They call me racist too just because I disagree with a President who happens to be black," he continued. He told the crowd: "You are not racists -- you are patriots."

The more I hear and see of Herman Cain, the more I like him! If nothing else, he can keep speaking out. Just not sure if he’s electable.

CPAC 2011: Herman Cain’s Speech at CPAC

There were many gems offered by the skilled orator and now former conservative radio host, but in his conclusion, Cain outlined 3 things we must do to save this nation.

One; Stay informed. Cain said “Stupid people are ruining America.” He added; So you must become teachers and educators of the stupid”.

Two; Stay involved. According to Cain, too many people stayed home in 2008 because we did not have the perfect candidate. Cain suggested that no candidate will ever be perfect and that if you can find one you agree with on 7 out of 10 things, “you’ve hit a homerun”.

The third thing he suggested we must do is stay inspired, because “they want you to believe we can’t take back our government”.

You will be missing one heck of a performance if you do not listen to Herman Cain’s. It will have you saying, “hey maybe this guy actually has a shot at becoming President”

I will not be convinced we have become a nation that judges by the content of character and not the color of skin until such a great American is elected.

This administration’s actions are more closely aligned with malicious intent than stupidity.

They believe that if they cripple the economy and our industrial base, they can knock this country down a peg.

Strengthening the unions, controlling healthcare, the internet, and the airwaves are simply mechanisms to ensure dependence on the government, and ultimately permanent liberal, socialist control.

Cain and Sowell have done more for the blacks in this country than those that advocate government handouts like Obama, Farrakan, Jackson, and Sharpton. But since they are conservative blacks, the liberal media decides they aren’t worthy of coverage and consider them sellouts. The real racists are those that write andd edit the major newspapers, networks, and many that teach at universities. Those are the ones that think the minorities are too dumb to make it on their own and need to be taken care of.

Problem with Herman Cain is that he supported TARP/Bank Bailouts....and that is the major part of our problem....bailing out the failures

He’s one of my favorites. And I think the times call for someone who has been very successful in business.

Unless his name is Romney.

See, Liberal progressive socialist white folk at a rally can get away with making racial comments about chief justice Thomas like he needs to be put back in the fields, he needs to be strung up along with his wife while the exploiters and blood suckers who make thier living off thier own kind are tone deaf, why? because to them this is not about the color of ones skin this time but that he is conservative. Isn't it convenient that they are able to pick and choose whether the color of your skin will be a reason for protest or deafness.

Yes, plus the racist cartoons they did of Condaleeza Rice which got mild outrage to say the least by those same race pimps. Racism is just another political strategy used by liberals and democrats to demean and smear opponents.

Rightly or wrongly, TARP was presented by the Chairman of the Federal Reserve and the Secretary of the Treasury to Congress as necessary to avoid another Great Depression. They made the case, and supported it with various facts, that the entire banking system would completely collapse if this 'bailout' was not passed. It was not without plausibility.

Put yourself in the shoes of a Congressman in late summer of '08 being asked to vote on something presented as necessary or the entire banking system and economy would totally collapse into a depression more severe than the 30's. Bernanke's doctoral thesis was on the Great Depression and he was viewed as the country's pre-eminent expert on the matter (causes and cures).

This vote was not about bailing out failing banks. Bear Stearns and Lehman were already bankrupt. This was saving the economy as we knew it. Sure, once passed it was bastardized by statists in Congress and the 0 admin but that wasn't Herman Cain's fault.

Flame suit on. I know this isn't the popular statement around these parts.

He supported it initially, based on initial information, but came out against it within a month when he had more detail and saw how it was being implemented.
