Herman Cain's rise in the polls appears to be no fluke. Unlike some other Republican presidential contenders who have flamed out fast after auditioning as the conservative antidote to Mitt Romney, Cain is still riding high atop public opinion surveys. "They said I was the flavor of the week," the Georgia businessman said at an appearance Friday on a campaign swing through Alabama. "But four weeks later the Cain campaign still tastes good!" Cain lacks the money and organization of his top-tier GOP competitors. But, so far, he's survived several high-profile campaign blunders and an onslaught of attacks on his signature 9-9-9 tax overhaul plan. And despite the sudden rise to the top tier of the GOP, Cain is still doing things his own way.

Imagine him debating Obama? It’d be the highest-rated debate ever, and Obama’s numbers would drop like a rock the day after.
The phoniness of Obama shrivels when put up to someone genuine.
Soetoro is a blathering moron without his teleprompter. Cain will be eating his lunch.
Such as this article. Can you imagine how much the MSM would love Cain if he were an Obamist?

If he had relied on mainstream consultants, they would have sunk him by now; instead, Cain has followed an unorthodox path which every expert will tell him is crazy
LOL. “Such as this article”.... you’re right!
Pingatator repeat... all-righty then!!!!
sorry... pinginator... sorry for the ping a tator...
"It's just a protest vote."
All MSM and FOX.
Herman Cain is genuine.
The GOP is going to nominate another DEWM. Yup, I can see that formula working like a charm next November!

Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
Click on the cane.
Go Cain Go!
Black Walnut seems to be a keeper.
His Southern strategy is a workable one. I expect Slick Willard to win NH because he’s well known in the New England market. But his brand of politics and then there’s the fact he’s a Mormon don’t play well down South. It makes no sense for Cain to invest a lot of time and effort where he can’t win.
Well this is one doggone big protest. Who wouldn’t?
If it was just a protest vote, as some contended, Cain would not have seen this rise in the polls.
Conservatives can coalesce around Cain or Bachmann. That’s the only way to defeat Romney. If they split their vote again, Romney will win the nomination.
Also, of the field of declared contenders, Cain is the only non politician. It’s awfully hard to pin dirty politics accusations on someone who has never been a politician. In that sense he comes in now with a cleaner slate than Barack Obama did in 2008.
Romney should win NH and Nevada easily. Cain shouldn’t put any more effort than necessary required to hit top 2-3 in those states. Romney might win Iowa. South Carolina and Florida are the non-Romney vote’s biggest early opportunities to win states.
