He was on Hannity tonight and was asked about the “gotach” question where he was asked about something he did not know about. The Palestinian Right of Return.

He was honest in stating that he did not know but researched the matter and now he knows about it...

I like that he did not try to cover up his way out of it and was honest..

I am starting to really think we have a the beginning of a groundswell.

Not based on a guy who could dance a few words on his tongue (which got us our current problem) but on a man of substance who is clearly his own man and the owner of his thoughts.

Cain is the real deal. I wish he hadn’t back-tracked on his clear, concise and accurate description of the palis, but he doesn’t have all the right advisors around him, yet.

Now, anyone want to start the “token” stopwatch for the racists that are all liberals?

I’m not sure if Herman is going to be my first choice, but if he can knock Romney out of the running then more power to him.

Plus, I’m pretty sure Herman is not going to show up at some NASCAR event, posing and wearing his freshly starched Bass Pro shirt and pretending like he’s just some down-home guy.

We all know how things are going inside the RNC tonight. Not well. Their hand picked dude is fading on his flimsy Romneycare excuse. On top of that, losing Daniels this weekend. Not good for the Rove types.

GOP Elitists

I thing Cain did well yesterday he made clear what his policies would be, that he would promise nothing to the Palestinians because he does not believe that they are serious about peace and that we do not dictate to Israel what borders they should have.

On Hannity, Dick Morris was talking about the contenders and he rules Michele Bachmann as a real potential player that isn't being given that much attention. He went on to say that though she is head of the Tea Party Caucus, she also represents what most republicans feel and that is that they are sick of the run of the mill rino types. She is taking it to them

If Cain were to be the nominee, I wonder who would be his running mate..I wonder the same about Michele if she were to get the nomination.

The guy is the real deal and when was the last time you could vote for that?

About Herman Cain: My Story

I was raised in Atlanta, Georgia by loving and hardworking parents. We grew up poor, but we grew up happy. Things weren’t always easy, but my mom and dad knew that if they kept their faith in God, faith in themselves and their faith in the greatest country in the world, they, too, could achieve their American Dream.

That dream, we discovered, was for my parents to own their own home and watch their two sons graduate from college. Those dreams required that my father work three jobs to support our family.

The first dream was realized in a brick home on Albert Street. I can still recall the excitement of the day, as he surprised us—even my mother—when he drove us to our new home.

Their second dream was realized when I proudly accepted my degree in mathematics from Morehouse College in 1967 and my brother graduated from Morris Brown College. Both of my father’s American Dreams were achieved. Now, I set off to achieve mine.

One year after graduating, I married the love of my life, Gloria. And together, we started our journey to achieve our Dreams. This meant relocating to Indiana where I would begin my Master’s degree program at Purdue University, while working full-time as a mathematician at the Department of the Navy.

After earning my Master’s degree and six years working for the Department of the Navy, we returned home to Atlanta, where I began to climb the corporate ladder with the Coca-Cola Company. I faced challenges, but I always remembered the values my parents taught me. With enough faith and determination, I knew I could go as high in corporate America as I desired.

I enjoyed a successful career at the Coca-Cola Company and later moved to the Pillsbury Company. Within a short period, I rose to the position of Vice President. When I got there, I thought I had already achieved my American Dream on the 31st floor of the new Pillsbury Corporate Headquarters with a corner office. But I quickly realized I wanted something more.

I resigned my position and started on another path- the restaurant industry. I knew that in order to be successful, I had to start from “the ground up.” This meant broiling hamburgers at Pillsbury’s Burger King division. After nine months of a grueling restaurant experience, I was assigned to lead a low performing region of 450 Burger King restaurants. Within three years, we became the best-performing region in the U.S.

I could have been content with my executive role with one of America’s biggest corporations. Instead, after consulting with my wife, we decided to take one of the biggest risks of our marriage: picking up our young family, relocating yet again and accepting the call to become CEO and President of Godfather’s Pizza, a company teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.

In 14 months, we turned the company around and returned it to profitability, and I ultimately led my management team to a buyout of Godfather’s Pizza. The company never went bankrupt, and today, there are still hundreds of locations across the U.S.

My success at turning around Godfather’s got the attention of fellow restaurateurs around the nation who invited me to join the Board of Directors of the National Restaurant Association and later elected me its chairman. In 1996, they retained me as the full-time President and the CEO of the National Restaurant Association, working on behalf of thousands of small businesses and entrepreneurs.

In 1994, as chairman of the National Restaurant Association, I had the opportunity to speak with President Clinton during a nationally televised town hall meeting. Here, I challenged the President regarding the impact on businesses if his health care overhaul proposal were passed.

President Clinton attempted to assure me and the millions of viewers watching at home that his legislation would not harm American business owners and their employees.

I was skeptical. “Quite honestly Mr. President, your calculations are incorrect,” I said. “In the competitive marketplace, it simply doesn’t work that way.”

Through these and other appearances on behalf of the National Restaurant Association, I began working with business leaders across all sectors of the American economy. This led to my acceptance of a position on the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, and I was subsequently elected their chairman.

Today, I host a radio talk show, “The Herman Cain Show,” on Atlanta’s WSB 750 AM/ 95.5 FM. I serve as a regular contributor on several broadcast networks and as a keynote speaker at conferences and events around the nation.

Despite the many professional commitments of my life, I continued to enjoy most the time spent with family and friends. As my children got married and had their own children, I knew that I had an extraordinary obligation to do what I could to make this a safe and prosperous nation for them. The paramount joys in my life are my wife, Gloria, our children and our grandchildren.

I am grateful for the many professional successes I have enjoyed. I am grateful for the steadfast loyalty and unwavering love of my family and friends. And I am grateful for this country that is so exceptional that I was afforded the opportunity to achieve my American Dreams.

I’m not done yet!

The fact of the matter is that the voodoo Republicans took conservatives for a ride (and for granted) for more than two decades. They have no -idea- how completely they have overdrawn their credit. To hell with them, and with their machine.

Romney’s competition is NOT Mr. Cain. It is the “moderate” republicans TPaw & Huntsman. Cain’s competition will be Bachmann, Santorum and Palin (if she declares, which is unlikely). Gingrich is pretty much finished with his “right wing social engineering” comment.

There is more substance in that passage than in the entirety of both the ghost-written books the TOTUS-reader slapped his name upon.

We have available to us a self-made man as opposed to the liberal-made mouthpiece the USA bought off on.

Let us pray America can see the difference.

Considering that he’s fumbled two foreign policy questions in the past few weeks, these results are a sad indication of lack of seriousness in the GOP voters. If he was six months out of his time as an executive in the restaurant business, his lack of knowledge about foreign affairs would be excusable. As someone who has been involved in policy and politics for over ten years, he should have educated himself about these issues if he wanted to run for president.

"The poll includes a day and a half of results after the Chris Wallace interview too. That’s important in all of this."

That is good news. It was not his best moments, but flubs are going to happen. And his baseline was that it was Israel's decision on Palestinian Right of Return. That is much better than not knowing jack and telling Israel how it should be. This gotcha journalism of random trivia pursuit questions is never applied to the Dems. The hellstorm Palin will face again if running for the top job this time will be hard to watch.
