Cain we talk?
Augusta Chronicle ^ | May 26, 2011 | Editorial Staff

Posted on 05/25/2011 8:03:00 PM PDT by kingattax

He will struggle for name recognition and money. He may have to split Tea Party votes with Michele Bachmann. And the media may be loath to warm up to a black conservative.

But anyone who saw Georgia's Herman Cain stirringly announce his candidacy for president Saturday in Atlanta knows this guy is the real deal -- and deserves a shot at the Republican nomination for the White House.

We eagerly admit being onto Herman Cain before a lot of others, having endorsed him for the U.S. Senate from Georgia in 2004, when we called the previously unknown and never-elected Cain "a superstar in the making."

A focus group after the first GOP presidential debate in South Carolina recently voted Cain the winner -- and catapulted him to legitimacy in many eyes.

It won’t be as hard as one thinks.

All the Republicans have to do is show all the times Obama was a no show and all the negative stuff that has happened on his watch.

That’s not hard.

Listen? You mean that’s all that’s needed are words like ‘hope and change’ and the inmates go wild? Where was his action - his fight for these past 2.5 years for our country?

Let’s get real - he’s been ABSENT other than speaking loudly about one thing -he AGREED with Barry to not show the photos of bin laden that Americans had the right to see. Only the elite were allowed to see them. Your candidate of choice can go suck rocks - he offered NOTHING these past 2.5 - he only wants. Nothing conservative about that.

I see you have a major control problem! Since you can’t handle the truth - you’re nuts to think I’m going to stop posting it.

Perhaps you need time out and grow some thicker skin - obviously not thick enough for politics.

Cain is NOT a leader - he’s a wuss afraid of the media for these past 2.5 years. He clearly doesn’t even know how to fight like a girl, much less a man. Maybe he’s going for McCain’s record as the media darling and agreeing with Barry.

Herman Cain

born December 13, 1945 in Memphis, TN (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)

Parents were
Luther Cain Jr., born March 16, 1925 in TN, died March 29, 1982 in Atlanta, GA
Lenora Davis, born July 27, 1925 in GA, died August 20, 2005 in Atlanta, GA

Both parents were US Citizens at the time of his birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)

Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN unlike Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama.

Anyone or those who have not fought for this country these past 2.5 years. Let's keep it honest.

It’s boring.

You must enjoy boring - your candidate been napping all along and woke up thinking 'I'll run for president'. Ho hum time for another snooze after he makes sure everyone heard him proclaiming no photos for the sheep/peon voters.

You sure are arrogant to think that you get to decide who was “fighting” and who wasn’t. Just because YOU never heard of Cain doesn’t mean he hasn’t been “fighting”.

I heard these same similar accusations 35 plus years ago about Reagan. He later won 49 of the 50 states and became President... and was a DAMN good one.

I suggest you open your eyes and see the possibilities, and that included CAIN.

The Palinista are getting as bad as the Paulist at being obnoxious.

Now what kind of idiot would think that calling people names, being rude, treating them like $#it would make them change their minds and move to the candidate that they are backing?

Anyone with brain knows that you can't browbeat some one into dropping their pick and moving to yours. If anything the only thing that such tactics do is make the person more adamant for their choice and adds to the negatives of the browbeater's choice. There are almost as many people who won't vote for Ron Paul because of his followers as there are those that won't because they just don't agree with him. My question is who are the Palinista going to go to if Palin doesn't run? Mitt? Newt? some other RINO?

Your candidate made it truth, kid. 'Cain we talk' - that's all he's done - "vote for me, I can beat Obama". LOL! He's like McCain.

God is God, the Great I AM.

Give it a rest

That's about the size of it from a Cain supporter. Rest is what their candidate is all about. ZZZZZZZZZ

Sarah isn’t running and may not run.

As I said the only thing you are accomplishing is adding to Sarah’s negatives, people will remember how Sarah’s supporter (I use that term loosely with you) treated them and people are know by the company they keep and I think that soon people will be thinking how can I support someone who’s supporters are such obnoxious trash mouths? We would anyone want to join a group that has a spam monkey like you as a member?

I don't know what you've been hearing. Perhaps you should get your ears checked.

Because Reagan was Governor of CA prior to becoming President. Herman Cain came in last in a 3-way Senate primary race and never got elected to zilch.

He later won 49 of the 50 states and became President... and was a DAMN good one.

Yes, and Herman Cain got elected to squat. What's your point?

I suggest you open your eyes and see the possibilities, and that included CAIN.

I'm fine with Cain firing up the Tea Party rallies and giving strong speeches. But he's not presidential material.

The quitter still defeated an incumbent GOP Governor and an ex-Governor in a year where the GOP got their rears handed to them.

What did Cain do, besides losing to 2 RINOs?

I voted for the Hermantor in 2004 for Senator. He would have been great. Instead now we have RINO Johnny Isakson.

Voters don't care about Cain's business background. They want to know what budgets he balanced, what he did to cut spending in government, how he advanced conservatism, etc.

Palin did all those things, before the haters tried to bankrupt her and her state.

As I said the only thing you are accomplishing is adding to Sarah’s negatives,

News alert - she doesn't have any negatives and only a liberal would spread the MSM talking points. However, on this conservative site - you stand out as a clueless troll with such a posting.

that soon people will be thinking how can I support someone who’s supporters are such obnoxious trash mouths

Looking at what everyone else does - isn't conservative - thanks for confirming the mindset that follows Cain. Don't forget trashing our Constitution - Cain doesn't want people to have rights - no photos for those peon voters! And the little sheep say ok papa, you know best. What wusses - just like their candidate. No conservative would ever entertain anyone who speaks out against our rights and has a sock in his mouth when obamacare was being passed. Like the rest of the rinos - they lack substance and more concerned about their own butt.

We would anyone want to join a group that has a spam monkey like you as a member?

How cute - a liberals' way of saying stop posting truth about our candidate! And this conservative says - TOUGH!!

GO SARAH!! America's PATRIOT - the Voice of Conservatism and the FIGHT that proves it! And the world watches...as a mom of 5 takes on the socialist's agenda SOLO!

When SARAH speaks - everyone listens and the 'rats and rino's tremble!

Nice job and shows the type who follow Cain! Make sure you have your bowl of propaganda pablum today, you are so yesterday - the old keeps regurgitating.

GO SARAH! America’s Patriot!! Taking the battle of Conservatism to a new level SOLO and the wusses are befuddled - ‘where does she get that brave spirit from’?! Sarah ROCKS and her opponents crumble.

WOO HOO!!

Experienced

Zero elective office experience

Outsider; Not another carrer politician; successful businessman

Stage 4 liver and colon cancer survivor

Fighter; strong as heck

Blacks will smear him as an Uncle Tom

So? They're not voting for any Republican

Cain is simply unelectable

Doesn't sound like you have any basis for that opinion; typical dismissal of any candidate one doesn't like

I'll say you'll miss me most - you seem drawn to me and will post any silly post to keep it that way. Get along now - surely you have something important to do - like wake up Cain, he must have slept in another day.
