Another candidate has entered the Republican presidential field.  Former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination in his home town of Atlanta, Georgia today.  Instead of announcing via social networking websites, Cain, currently a talk radio host, made his announcement at a rally in Centennial Olympic Park.

On his website, Cain writes, "The biggest barrier to solving many of our national problems is lack of leadership."

I was at the rally. It was wondeful to hear the truth spoken so forcefully.

I couldn’t count the times Cain said “God”. It especially touched me when Cain said “God is in charge of this journey.” So true.

As for the crowd size. Thousands of people were there whether it was 10,000, 15,000 or way less is not important. What matters is that everyone left feeling uplifted and with a sense of hope for our country’s future.

The counts will be pretty accurate. The venue was closed and every particpant had to register. I worked the t-shirt tables - they were buzzing the entire time!

When maObama speaks with the ‘prompter, he speaks from the heart.

I'm curious as to what cabinet position Obama is going to offer him and for how much money.

You KNOW Obama is going to do what he has to do to keep Cain off the ticket hunt! : D

I never try to get yard signs from the local GOP office here in MA. I’m not even sure where it is! I ordered my Fredhead stuff, and then my Palin stuff from online.

To: going hot

There was definitely more than 1.5K at the rally. You can’t see all the crowd from the videos. It was a hot day in Atlanta and a lot of people were standing in the shade away from the cameras.

LOL! He can try, but if Cain is the man I think he is, he’ll tell the empty suit in the white house to stuff it! :)

So the question is;

If I like Cain but hate Obama, am I still a racist?

Very correct. And is the Atlanta metro area a big area of conservatism?

BTW, MR. Cain, you are about to be christened with your new, official media name: “Uncle Tom”.

Yeah, well. Those of us on the Right, who happen to be black, laugh at that.

If you can't appreciate the pure beauty of the violin after hearing this, something's wrong with your ears.

Or you can get raw with these strings. Either way, the violin is sweet yet lethal.

Do it!
