Herman Cain No Rodney Dangerfield, but Waiting for Respect After Florida Straw Poll Victory
Fox News ^ | 09/25/2011

Posted on 09/25/2011 7:30:31 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Ecstatic off a Florida straw poll victory that is sure to elevate his visibility, Republican presidential contender Herman Cain said Sunday that the GOP establishment better start paying attention because he's getting respect from voters.

"The takeaway from Florida, that we took away, is that number one, the citizens movement is more powerful than the establishment wants to give me credit for. So yes, they keep treating me like the Rodney Dangerfield of this primary contest," Cain told Fox News.

"The voters, the people out in the field are saying we want to send a message to Washington, D.C. The establishment is not going to make this call, the people are going to make the call and that's what you saw in the Florida straw poll yesterday," he said.

Cain won the straw poll decisively on Saturday, garnering 37 percent of the 2,657 votes cast. Far behind was Texas Gov. Rick Perry with 15. 4 percent and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney with 14 percent. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum came in fourth with 10.88 percent.

The results were a stunner to many since Cain is out-funded and doesn't have the same name recognition as other candidates like Perry, who also spent time and money on securing a strong showing at the event.

Romney had vowed before the primary season to sit out straw polls but the former Godfather's Pizza CEO has also invested his time in Florida. The winner of the straw poll wins the Florida GOP endorsement ahead of the primary, the date of which is still being disputed.

Usually I worry about our nominee winning the general election. This time I have NO doubt Cain will take Obama to wood shed and have a landside victory. The MSM including Fox and all the good ole boy talking heads like rove, kristol and the rest will brush thus off as an anomoly. Don’t let them distract you. Never ever again will they tell US who we should vote for. The people are SICK of politicians. The want problem solvers.

At this point in the campaign, I see parallels for Herman Cain to Huckabee in 2008 - a below 5%er suddenly thrust into the top three. But Herman has earned his place and Huck was put there by the MSM who wanted him to take votes from Fred.

While Huck was a phony nonconservative televangelist, Herman Cain is the real deal. I think he can build on his newfound attention and truly contend. Of those in the race currently, he is my current favorite. I've liked him from the beginning but did not think he had a chance. He does now.

If there is some critical flaw ewith Hernman Cain’s ((( pklan, or in any nature of his caninacy, would anyone care to point it out? I’ve not made up my mind as to who I will choose, but Cain loks better and better to me, I I will love pointing out what racist liar scum the MSM are, when they begin to attack attack him in earnest.

***The only problem that I have with Herman Cain is that he has no governing experience. Foreign policy and health?***

We have been ‘governed’ by the elite for decades and look where we stand domestically and internationally.

H.Cain has executive experience in the retail world - where we all live.

He is smart enough to delegate diplomacy on foreign policy -to someone with experience (Bolton) rather than as a political payoff (Hillary). He will base decisions on his love of this Nation - not on narcissism.

Health? He has more vigor than a younger Clinton. He faced the grim reaper and won!

A man of faith, fidelity and fearlessness.

Surprisingly the only one to give Cain props in the last debate was Huntsman...on the VP question.

I heard in one of the debates Romney give him props for being the only one besides him to create private sector jobs.

Considering the mess the professional politicians have created in every thing except our Military, that is a strong point in his favor.

Dwight D Esinehower had no elected office experience either.

Our system needs deep fundamental reform. Expecting professional politicians to do that is the equivalent of putting drug addicts in charge of a bankrupt pharmacy expecting them to turn it around.

CORRECTED:
I expected that the LibPervs and his opponents, would play down Herman Cain’s success, but found it insulting that even Brit Hume won’t give him any more than grudging respect.

If there is some critical flaw eith Herman Cain’s 999 plan, or in any nature of his candidacy, would anyone care to point it out?

I’ve not made up my mind as to who I will choose, but Cain looks better and better to me, and I I will love posting in every public forum, what racist liar scum the MSM and the rest of the “Left” ate, when they begin to attack attack him in earnest.

Morgan Freeman...What a shame to see that he has sunk to being such a booze pickled, racist, has been, he has sunk to being. He used to be an fine actor who deserved respect...Now I wouldn’t want to be like him. Wouldn’t give him a glass of water if he were already in hell....where he is going.

* Foreign Policy experience

Really? Other then GB 1, none of our past President from Ford on have had any real foreign policy experience. That is a non issue.

His Health? Hmm he is running a 24-7 campaign that relies almost wholly on his making a personal connection to voters. No big bundlers-no big media experts, just Mr Cain going out and meeting voters at events or in small groups.

Cain is waging possibly the most physically challenge strenuous campaign of any of the candidates.

You see any sign his health is troubled by that hyper active schedule?

For a while I thought that Bachmann was the better choice, but Cain has stayed on message and did not panic and come off as an attack dog.

And how did Eisenhower govern? Did he govern in the manner of an arch conservative or was he more moderate? If Cain governs more moderate than his talk, will that be acceptable?

I didn't vote for Mike Huckabee, but he wasn't a televangelist or a phony.

Gov. Huckabee filled the pulpit in my church several times There was no doubt that he was preaching the Word.

Fred took votes away from Fred all on his own. Huckabee was in long before Fred finally decided to jump in the race.

Very few Presidents have foreign policy experience when they take office. George H.W. Bush and Dwight Eisenhower were exceptions in the 20th Century. With respect to governing experience, the President’s job is chief executive, not legislator. If we wish to return to first principles Cain’s executive experience in private industry should serve him much better than the legislative experience of an Obama or John McCain.

I don’t think he is either, but he is still unproven under the political pressure of high office. His supporters are relying on faith that he will govern in the manner they want him too since he has no actual record to judge, such as Palin and Perry do.

As far as getting the nomination though, I think his lack of governing record will be a plus, as in no news is good news, all he has to do now is successfully handle the onlaught he is about to recieve and debate well as a target. If he does that he has a good chance at the nod.

I agree. The problem is people are so condition by the Junk Media to accept who they tell us should be the candidate they simply are not listening to Cain. All I ask is that people take a serious look at Cain. I know I did not take Cain seriously until I started really looking at his plans and listening to him.

Palin, to a lesser extent, has the same problem. I was so conditioned by the Junk media, I did not take her seriously. After taking the time to learn more about her, I realize she too would be a formidable President.

“Of those in the race currently, he is my current favorite. I’ve liked him from the beginning but did not think he had a chance. He does now.”

He’s been my favorite from the beginning. I just worry about the extreme power of the MSM as far as most people even knowing who he is. I mean, we around here are political wonks, but we’re in the minority. Even tea partiers are in the minority compared to the public at large. All the millions who don’t watch Fox News but instead watch MSNBC, CNN or network news probably aren’t hearing about Herman, at least nothing positive.

I hope I’m wrong, but the evil MSM still has a tremendous amount of control over what the average person sees and hears.

People just need to be exposed to Herman, he’s so impressive. It may need to be by word of mouth for awhile, but the more people see and hear him, the more they’ll be captivated and hopefully make those much needed campaign donations.

“The only problem that I have with Herman Cain is that he has no governing experience.”

Gosh, he’s been a Chief Executive more than once over vast numbers of people, made many good appointments, built successful teams and turned around ailing companies. He was elected and served as President of the National Restaurant Association more than one term, which is one of the largest (if not the largest?) professional association in the country. He’s an expert in numbers, budgets and economics, and - he’s got loads of common sense, solid values, strong religious faith and a deep love of our country.

He’s a problem solver who knows how to choose and enjoin exceptional people. He’s got what it takes to be OUR Chief Executive (imho :-)

“Two other concerns: * Foreign Policy experience * How healthy is he really?”

a) he’s a quick study, is better qualified in this area than the current POTUS because, unlike BHO, he wants the best for us and our country;
b) he’s 5 years cancer-free and has an eternally positive, sunny optimism which is also vital to maintaining good health. (Even his doctors said he overcame incredible odds in beating the cancer he had.)

That’ll all come out anyway, plus I’m betting he’ll pick a wonderful VP to seal the deal.
