Posted on 10/11/2011 12:12:41 PM PDT by Cato in PA

"I’m not going after Perry. I don’t need to go after Perry," Cain said, per POLITICO's Juana Summers.

“Cain: “I’m going after Romney” at the debate”

Kind of throws a monkey wrench into the bald-faced lie that Cain is running to be VP to Romney.

If true, its about time someone other than Perry went after Willard.

However, I’ll believe it when I see it.

I don’t care so much about that, I’m nore afraid of Charlie Rose and his fellow leftist hacks going after anybody-but-Romney again. They are trying to do a nominatiion by elimination on the GOP here for Mittens.

Cain told Neal Boortz this morning that he was going after Romney. Hope he does.

I would rather he keeps up his attacks on the occupying trash. Why attack, perry. When Perry has been standing in the bathroom slashing his own wrist. Dang what a heartless thing to say. Perry probably wants to forgive the education debt of the occupying trash, he feels the need to treat them equal with the illegals.

It is always good strategy to go after the front runner than it is the also-ran. Now that Perry and Romney have switched spots, it makes even more sense.

Perry's best strategy might just be to lay back and enjoy it. Because if he makes any more stupid statements in support of the illegal alien lobby, he is going to get pummeled.

Cain had better be careful or he'll provoke the other candidates who are all running to be Mitt's VP.

Except Paul, who's running to be his own VP.

It sounds to me like he’s ready and excited for the opportunities that this debate offers him. (I *LOVE* how this man isn’t afraid of a challenge!)

Lord, I pray he does well tonight! This will be the turning point. If he scores big, there will be no stopping him.

OK. I’ll tape it and watch it from between my fingers! lol!

GO CAIN!!

Cain is my favorite.

But I wish he’d go after Obama, lack of jobs, etc
and showcase his business experience and success.

But Romney is a good secondary target.

Perry's problem is he has to overcome the image he created for himself this last debate. And he can't do that by laying back and enjoying it. It's a double-edged sword for him tonight.

Good Romeny is the only one to beat. Still surprised there are those that would call Slick Willie a front runner despite his RINO liberal ways. Cain is the obvious conservative of the bunch. I can’t believe it took this long for people to wake up but glad they did before the primaries start. herman Cain is our guy people, forget the establishment republican candidates and vote conservative.

I can easily imagine a great comeback line like this:

Mitt: Herman Cain and I both have a record of great and successful business experience. But I also have a record of experience in elective office.

Herman: Yes, Mitt. But your resume would look as good as mine if you didn't have that record of experience in elective office.

Never was a love fest. The love fest is between the two GOP Party bots Perry and Romney

Who got in the race last? Who got into the race after a whole lot of pushing by the GOP Establishment?

Perry is only in this to split the social conservatives away from the Tea Party and hand the nomination to Romney.

Both Romney and Perry are the same old GOP politics as usual Establishment politicians. All this suppose verbal combat at the debates between them is just Kabuki theater for the masses.

What does Romney need? Someone to build a bridge to the social conservatives in GOP Establishment like Palin did for McCain in 2008. Who is the darling cult of personality Bush jr idol of the social conservatives?

Rick Perry.

What does Perry need but a chance to perform on the National stage and be “President in waiting” so he can be President in fact 8 years from now.

It is a political Establishment marriage of the GOPbots dreams. It the equivalent of putting Bush and McCain on the same ticket. Mass campaign money plus candidates who are on the “correct” side of every one of the crony capitalist party Establishment positions.

Cain has nothing to offer any of the Establishment Candidates. He build no bridges, brings no money and totally over shadows any of them except Newt on the intellectual field.

Cain would not be anyone choice for VP. Perry will be.

But of course it will all be a charade, you see. He’ll PRETEND to go after Romney, but he’ll do it according to a Romney-provided script and in a way that is ineffective, and Romney will come out looking calm and undamaged. And then Romney will look very mature and presidential when he doesn’t bear a grudge and proves it by offering Cain the VP slot.

Did I get it right, DRey?

"Cain had better be careful or he'll provoke the other candidates who are all running to be Mitt's VP."

Mitt, Perry, Newt and to a lesser degree Huntsman and Santorum will do their level best to turn this ship around. I look for all of them to have their knives out for Cain.

NO WAY can they allow a political outsider a NON-career politician to come away with the nomination. If they do it would spell death for all their insider buddies and Party elites. Put the people back in control of their own government? Can’t have that now can we? No we are smarter than they are we know what's best for them.

Just saw Romney and Christie, Romney playing the victim card, criticizing Perry for thanking Rev. Jeffress for his introduction. I’m not hearing Myth criticizing Cain though. It’s clear who Myth is worried about.

Sure. So far, Cain has only hit Perry, however. No one else. The objective of conservatives is to knock off the statist pig and frontrunner, Romney. Not a good conservative like Perry. Btw, how about finishing our debate from that other thread. LINK I asked you to explain yourself. How about it?

Cain WAS running for a Romney veep spot, I’m sure of it.

He’s now gone to plan B because he’s decided he can make it on his own.

This will be funny.

Also, notice the not-so-sly little dig at Perry. Hope he has to eat those words.
