He will get a very good bump out of this. Rogersville is old school and very conservative. So is Cookeville. He is doing it right.

Yep, he’s the only one of the bunch that I actually like and could get genuinely enthused about. Only catch is electability.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!

OUCH!!!! Going to be in Cookeville at 8:30 A.M.?? I’m not sure this lil vampire will be able to make it that early. My normal bedtime is 6a.m. LOL! I’ll see what I can do.

I’ve told some friends about this tour and will pass this info along to them. Most of them are day-people and will probably be able to make it.

We will not have a Romney presidency because most considervates WILL NEVER VOTE FOR HIM. And the fact he has way too much baggage.

Romney is Obama lite.

I am a Cain supporter, a strong one. But even a promise of a cabinet position for Cain is not enough to get me to vote for the liberal Mittens. No way, NO HOW.

Not just the Perry crowd, a few of the Palin supporters attacked a Cain thread last night. One is particularly vicious.

The title of the article should read “herman Cain heading to the White House.”

If he is the nominee, how are the libs going to treat the Hermanator? They can’t call call him black enough, can’t say he never accomplished anything in his life (all without affirmitive action policies by the way), can’t say he doesn’t have leadership qualities and experience, and can’t say he attends a racist/marxist church for 20 years!!!

Herman Cain would not only be Obama’s worst nightmare, but many blacks will be liberated from the plantation that is the democratic party.

I missed those threads, but will be checking today.

My husband and I attended the Presidency 5 in Orlando. We paid for $125 tickets as guests because we missed the deadline to apply to be Delegates from our FL county. There is a REAL story behind the BIG WIN by Herman Cain that the media and GOP elite do not want the public to know.

We all know that Florida is a “Key State” in every election because of our size and number of Electoral College votes.
I do believe whomever takes Florida will win the White House. We Floridians are doing our best to make Florida solid Conservative. We will get the job done in 2012!

Sorry to go on so long here, but want you to make sure you tell folks the following if anyone says Herman Cain can't win! This is the story behind the Cain win, that the media wants to not talk about. They want to say the Straw Poll was just a fluke, just a protest vote against Romney and Perry. NONSENSE!

The media (including FOX) and the GOP elite do not want the public to know just what weight the Orlando Presidency-5 Straw Poll had, and what a really BIG WIN Herman Cain actually made!

The Presidency 5 Straw Poll was not like most other straw polls. You know, the kind where young children are allowed to vote, where folks in attendance are allowed to vote showing no ID or voter registration or where young college kids are bused in by a campaign to vote for a candidate. The rules for the P-5 Straw Poll were very strict and all Delegates had to follow those rules.

Here are the rules that were followed for the Presidency 5 Straw Poll in Orlando.

1. Every Delegate had to apply in their local Florida county to be selected as a Delegate by this past June,2011. (Alternate Delegates also were registered, certain # per county in the event the designated number was not reached with some Delegate not attending.)

2. Every Delegate and alternate had to be a registered Florida Republican since last February, 2011.

3. Every Delegate had to pay $175 to be a Delegate. (Alternates paid $125 guest cost unless they did happen to be selected to be a Delegate. Then they owed $50 more.)

4. The number of Delegates selected from each Florida County depended on the number of registered Republicans in that County based on a % basis.

5. The minimum number of Delegates from any Florida County was 8 delegates.

6. Every Delegate and alternate had to sign in at Presidency 5 with their Delegate form and photo ID.

7. During the last speeches of the candidates on Saturday, all Delegates had to sit with other Delegates from their FL county. A spouse who was not a Delegate could not sit with the Delegate husband/wife. Following candidate speeches, the voting began at 4:30 in a designated area at the Convention Center.

8. Delegate voting took place between a strictly enforced designated time period, ie, 4:30-6:00PM Saturday, September 24, 2011.

The fact that Herman Cain walked away with this Straw Poll really does show that many folks switched from Perry, Romney and others. I really was not surprised Herman Cain won because I observed (as a guest) the standing ovations received by each candidate. Another tidbit. When the candidates had meet and greets, Herman Cain was to have his meet and greet in a room that accommodated about 100 people. The venue had to be moved because over 600 people showed up!

Currently, we have a pResident who has zero understanding of CEO function in leadership. Herman Cain is just everything that barry bassrud is not.

Instead of 'community organizing' for rabble rousing, Herman Cain has CEO experience organizing assets to maximize their abilities for growth.

I sure would prefer to have an encourager instead of the rabble rouser-in-chief working to accentuate racial divide and class warfare.

Herman Cain is a man in full; little barry race hustler is a man full of himself, clueless to the realities of human History.

I would bet Herman's IQ is at least forty points higher than little barry's drug smeared brain, and Herman has spent his life developing people and assets, where Barry has spent his life organizing for dissonant value along Alinsky lines of revolution.

Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin are both pro-gun.

Cain flunks the gun rights test.

Although Cain says he supports the Second Amendment, in the next breath he says he fully supports any and all state gun control/prohibitions.

That is like supporting federal rights for women and blacks, but allowing women and blacks to be slaves if the state laws permit them to be slaves.

I will not support any candidate who allows, and favors, individual states to outlaw guns, or to take away womens voting rights, or to allow slavery, or to prohibit free speech, etc. .

Being at Presidency 5 and also CPAC-FL last weekend was really an experience for James and me. I want to share this also, but many here might not consider it very important.

Watching all the speeches of the candidates, I observed only Herman Cain (and Newt some too) giving their speeches with no teleprompter, and no notes. The words flowed straight from the heart and brain.

I mentioned before that James and I favored Governor Perry going in, but not now. I actually felt somewhat sorry for Perry in his speech giving. He had to read too much, look down at his notes too much. I know that does not always mean a lot, as other Presidents have also had to rely on notes, and teleprompter during very big speeches. And I can certainly understand them doing so. But like our Congressman Allen West, when Herman Cain speaks it is all internalized. Straight from the heart.

Thanks for the great info about Cain. My only 2 choices are Palin and Cain.

I pray for a Palin/Cain, Cain/Palin ticket for 2012. I believe they are the only hope to save America.

If we don’t get either one.....we’re screwed.

In contrast stand the facts of what he actually said, in context:

BLITZER: All right. Let’s talk about gun control. Do you support any gun control?

CAIN: I support the Second Amendment.

BLITZER: So you don’t — so what’s the answer on gun control?

CAIN: The answer on gun control is I support strong — strongly support the Second Amendment. I don’t support, you know, onerous legislation that’s going to restrict people’s rights in order to be able to protect themselves as guaranteed by the Second Amendment.

BLITZER: Should states or local governments be allowed to control the gun situation? Or should...

CAIN: Yes.

BLITZER: The answer is yes?

CAIN: The answer is yes. That should be a state’s decision.

He knows what he is doing. TN will be a ground swell of support for Mr. Cain if he can get his plan off the ground. We are near the highest sales tax of any state. It will affect many. The flip side of this is all consumers now have skin in the game. The manipulations of the current tax code will cease. It is a hard sell to the retired population.
