Posted on 08/21/2011 9:51:44 AM PDT by justsaynomore
Highlights from Herman Cain's speech in Iowa many have called the best of the day.
However, Herman Cain's Facebook page continues to increase by approximately 1000 people/day. His speech was after the vote and many lamented that they wish they could change their vote. Straw poll votes (that do not entail buying votes) still have him in the top tier. He beat Romney and Gingrich in Iowa, which many said he couldn't do. His donations and volunteers have increased exponentially over the past two weeks. His favorability rating at Galllup is still the best of every candidate. His 9-9-9 economic plan is receiving much acclaim, and winning independents (who otherwise do not like his conservative social leaning)
Herman Cain also is not losing votes to Perry, Romney is.
All in all, to say, the Herman Cain train is plugging along, stronger than ever!
I like Cain, and hate all the RINOS, but sorry to say I also think he has no chance of getting the nomination, and even a slim chance of being pick as a VP running mate.
He’s got positives,which are also negatives,whether he knows it or not, like “never having held elective office”, but he and his followers keep punching them like that should be enough to propel him upward. They want that to add up to a lot more than it ever could, or should.
Another “positive” is that he’s been refreshing in his admissions that he doesn’t know a whole lot about certain of the finer points of geopolitics,but has shown himself to be a quick study.I think everyone knows by now who the likely nominee(s) will be, and it won’t be Cain./
Don’t wanna make any comparisons in the field of football, but there’s a certain quarterback that Rush Limbaugh talked about...........
That was a good speech!
Herman Cain has 167,000 Facebook Friends....keep going. He actually needs a ton more than that.
Sarah Palin has 3,2 million Facebook Friends.
Rick Perry has 132,000 Facebook Friends.
Michelle Bachmann has 463,000 Facebook Friends.
Ron Paul has 473,000 Facebook Friends.
Romney has 1.3 million Facebook Friends.
Rick Santorum has 27,000 Facebook Friends.
Barak Obama has 22 million Facebook Friends.
Hillary Clinton has 14,000 Facebook Friends
Bill Clinton has 685,000 Facebook Friends
George W. Bush has 1.5 million Facebook Friends.
Bottom line on this if we go by Facebook Friends then Sarah is far above anyone else. And the the Democrats it would be Obama. So a Sarah vs. Obama match up is probably the best way to go for the Republicans especially conservatives. Go Sarah!!!!!

It is a very sad realization just how many RINOS there are here on FR. America needs a conservatvie businessman who doesn't play both sides. We need Cain today more than ever but too many here are swayed by good hair.
Nice “Straw Man” there.
I never said Herman Cain had more Facebook friends than anyone else.
I said that his numbers were increasing. This is to support my point that he is still in this. When someone is out of the race, their numbers don’t increase.
Cain has been the most consistent with a conservative response to the illegal-immigration issue. He’s been at the top of my list, if for that alone, since his announcement. I only wish he’d be a larger factor in the primaries. I’ve not picked him, just favor him at the moment. I don’t fall into this clap-trap that one has had to been in office to run for office.
They said the same thing about McCain in 2007.
They said the same thing about Reagan in the 70s.
Damn! why isn’t this guy higher in the polls????
Because media ignores him and many conservatives won’t get behind him because they are waiting for perfection and believe the lie he can’t win.
Ron Paul is the other kicker. Herman Cain is closer to Paul’s fiscal conservatism than anyone running, but Paulbots have made it their mission in life to bring him down. They haven’t attacked any of the RINOS like they have gone after Cain. Shows you how “conservative” they really are.

I like Herman Cain , I think he’s a good man. I want him to do well in the race to the White House and come in second, right behind Palin.
From Herman Cain’s Facebook today:
In California today and heading to Israel this week with my wife, Gloria. It has been a lifelong dream of ours to take a Christian pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Will also be attending Glenn Beck’s rally while there.
I really like this guy. To bad the people won’t back him, he could really be good for this Country......
Herman's account of his wife's comments (from Indianapolis video link):
"The biggest mistake that they made was to say that Herman Cain can't win. They should never tell Herman Cain he can't do anything!" - Gloria Cain
Herman Cain is Ready to Lead!!
Easy to say. Harder to prove. You certainly haven't begun to form the "a" in argument.
Oops. You forgot to disqualify the many that have left her side in the past 2 years without removing their friendship status. And, more importantly, the multitudes that "friend" her so that they can attack her.
Not really a good measure, is it?
With more media attention, and resulting higher name recognition, his already top-of-the-heap p.i. scores would be through the roof! If you like, him......"introduce" him to people! :)
Cain is no McCain (thank God!)
He’s infinitely better in ALL ways than McCain,
a rusty dinosaur/RINO if there ever was one.
Cain is ALSO no Ronald Reagan.
He’s infinitely less sure of himself than Reagan,
with zero years of practical experience in knowing
how to handle himself in debates or present himself to
an ever-widening public, which is going to include an MSM
with teeth newly-sharpened just for this candidate,Herman Cain.
Expect a replay of the Clarence Thomas nomination process—Listen to Reagan’s
speeches from FIFTEEN years before he ran from President
and you’ll see what I mean.
I mentioned a lot of negatives and positives, which
are virtually interchangeable in Cain, and you paid no
attention to those “finer points” which should figure into
anyone’s realistic appraisal of a candidate.
To me, he simply comes across as too unsure of himself to wade into the waters that he’ll encounter as this process
IF he gets the nomination, would I vote for him?
OF COURSE I WOULD!
IF he gets the nomination, would he beat Obama or any
Obama challenger who might be the Democrat candidate?
He very likely WOULD.
Like I said, I like him.
Still don’t think he’ll get the nomination, though.
And everything I might do, or you might do, or a halfmillion
other people might do , working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week will not change that.
“Dont wanna make any comparisons in the field of football, but theres a certain quarterback that Rush Limbaugh talked about...........”
No way...not even close.
Cain may not be enough of a polished politician to suit your preferences, but that is a ridiculous comparison.
YES WE CAIN! 2012
Herman Cain and Sarah Palin both have earned my complete trust by their character, energy, motivation, and directin...to me what’s inside both of them is as reliable as anvils. I would feel confident in our future with either of them as POTUS, and doubly so if both names were on the ticket. God bless them both.
