IOWA CITY, Iowa Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has cast himself as the outsider, the pizza magnate with real-world experience who will bring fresh ideas to the nation's capital. But Cain's economic ideas, support and organization have close ties to two billionaire brothers who bankroll right-leaning causes through their group Americans for Prosperity.
Cain's campaign manager and a number of aides have worked for AFP, the advocacy group founded with support from billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, which lobbies for lower taxes and less government regulation and spending. Cain credits a businessman who served on an AFP advisory board with helping devise his "9-9-9" plan to rewrite the nation's tax code. And his years of speaking at AFP events have given the businessman and radio host a network of grass-roots fans.

I was just thinking that Herman would have to put Prick or Mutt on the ticket to get the bankroll he needed to compete. Now, maybe he won't have to.
Isn’t being tied to Patriots a good thing?
And Obama is closely tied to the evil, anti-semetic, government and currency toppling George Soros. I’d be like Cain and take my chances with the Koch brothers any day!
Obama tied to George Solos.
It's nice to know that Cain might have a few deep pocket donors to turn too :)
(but I doubt the person who wrote this wanted that response)
Koch Bros vs. Ayers/Dohrn/FarrahConMan
obama is closely tied to Mel Immelt? And?

Luther Cain Jr., born March 16, 1925 in TN, died March 29, 1982 in Atlanta, GA
Lenora Davis, born July 27, 1925 in GA, died August 20, 2005 in Atlanta, GA
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of his birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
So, future stories that Cain doesn’t have the money for a full presidential campaign are just that...stories...(smile).
Where are the little “oh no guys”.
What- the medias’ gonna start vetting folks, now?
I guess Darth Seditious got a waiver last time, huh?
*whistling past the bs*
Same here, so what? About time the right had some money in the background on our side. The Koch brothers run a pretty closed shop and what people don’t know they make up and what they make up is usually bad. Koch is a business that makes money and stays under the radar as much as it can.
Americans for Prosperity? So what? What about moveon.org and all the rest of the lefty communes?
I’m not crazy about 9-9-9 though. I see a lot more used stuff in my future but that is a decision I can make.
