Skip to comments.VANITY- Why does GOP "Elite" hate Cain?
Posted on 10/14/2011 8:39:08 PM PDT by Cookies4ever
This is my very first post after a decade+ of reading FR online so if I've made a formatting error, please forgive me. What is the GOP "elite" problem with Herman Cain? He's a legitimate candidate with great conservative plans. He's had no political experience, but why is that a bad thing? What career politician has accomplished what Mr. Cain has? Why do O'Reilley, Hannity, Rove, etc. hold Mr.Cain with such contempt? What do they fear...or...do they just swallow the left's pablum that Romney is the only viable candidate--and the only GOP candidate that Obama "fears" which is total BS!!!
Simple....He is a conservative
He doesn’t play by their rules, doesn’t kiss their back sides, and refuses to be controlled.
close the thread and give this man a prize.
Because they can’t control him.
A faction of FR hates Cain. It’s just the way it is.
He is the real McCoy...a real conservative...and they fear that.
Hey, a lot of people like him, even a lot of GOP “elites”. I think you may have this one wrong: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2793020/posts
It’s really not complicated.
He’s not a liberal Republican (they also detested Reagan)
He’s not one of them (the elite)
Same reason they hated Reagan (when he was a candidate).
Same reason they hate Palin.
Simple - his empowerment (entitlement) zones in his 999 plan are not conservative values.
The establishment also has a problem with TEA, Palin, and Perry.
The best way to expunge the grunge is to work and win at the grassroots level.
Cain is wonderful, btw. Not sure about 9-9-9 however.
Welcome to FR.
I would not include Hannity in that list.
I believe that it’s because career politicians ee it as just that... a career. They’re jockeying for promotions.
When an upstart comes in who hasn’t made his way up the ranks in the ‘proper’ way (IE; a real citizen trying to make a positive difference) they’re resented. The career politicians look at it like the upstart hasn’t paid their ‘dues’.
Politics is all about making deals - horsetrading behind the scenes. Someone who doesn’t play ball doesn’t ‘get it’ and they come together to stomp them out.
Establishment politicians have forgotten that our founders saw our representatives as US. They were supposed to take time away from their farms or their businesses, do some good for their country, then go home and live with the laws they created.
Now, it’s just another profession.
I believe that this is why Washington corrupts. It’s all a damn game to them. Most of them forget their true purpose.
“He doesnt play by their rules, doesnt kiss their back sides, and refuses to be controlled.”
A president gets to fill at least 1000 jobs. The ESTABLISHMENT knows that they will get very few jobs, under President Cain (unlike what would happen under Romney or Perry).
the republicans have been since the beginning just prior to the civil war,
for big government and big spending. in the 1890s they spent money like water.
in the early 20th c they developed, as did the democrats, an admiration for totalitarianism—lenin, hitler and mussolini.
they never have been “conservatives”.
conservatism began with william buckley, barry goldwater, ronald reagan, milton friedman, fa hayek, von mises, and some of ayn rand.
Republican elite are just closet demorats and they prove it by wearing out their arms reaching across the isle non stop.Cain scares the sh!t out of ‘em.
Cain challenges everything they base their world view on. If can can win, most of what they base their political power on is threatened. The tax code, the need for million $ high power political consultants etc etc etc
