The Perry haters had better be careful what they wish for - Herman Cain is imploding minute by minute - Perry wasn’t drunk. One by one - each of our conservative candidates are being destroyed.
Who is behind this? I believe it is Romney.
But this might not be a problem for Cain people, Mr. Cain has always - in my view - been running for Romney’s VP. It never has been a serious candidacy - but now he will be tossed by the wayside.
Rick Perry is the only candidate that has the means to defeat Romney, but I’m afraid a lot of Cain’s supporters will go for anybody but Rick - they hate him that much.
You are so right.
I still wonder about Cain’s intentions regarding Romney. And would he even be an asset to Romney at this point?
Hard to tell. He’s very popular on free republic right now and is winning a lot of polls.
But I still think he’s kind of the ‘vote cute’ candidate that Obama was four years ago. I’m not speaking of the black thing, but of someone outside of the usual political arena, a blank slate upon which desperate people can paint all their hopes and dreams.
I’m very much afraid that if he lets them down, they will be too dispirited to work hard for our nominee.
Time will tell.
I’m a Cain supporter—and I really have NO HATRED at all for Gov. Perry. Either man would make a wonderful President—even though Perry is awful about immigration—and a bit too moderate on other things too; Perry is, after all a mainstream Republican—more than an ideological Conservative, who’s been playing ball with the mainline GOP types... for a long time now.
I know Perry about as well as I know Cain...which isn’t all that much. However, when I see a guy who I KNOW will be portrayed JUST LIKE one of the Left-and-Middle folks MOST HATED presidents, W. Bush, I have a hard time believing he will win.
Is Perry REALLY like Bush? No, not at all. Perry’s a real Texan, who is a true self-made man, not a New England heir carpet-bagger Texan like President Bush was... However both men (to us non-Texans) talk alike...have similar mannerisms, and I just KNOW the mainstream Media will make it out that Perry is a Bush clone.
Obama’s whole campaign in ‘08 was really against Bush (not McCain) hence the campaign again would be against Bush’s “ghost” in the person of Perry... Since superficially, it can look that way...(and we know the Media and the Dems are CERTAINLY superficial) I really do think—regardless how good a man Perry is (and I really do think he is a great man) I have serious doubts a (HEAVILY PORTRAYED) Bush III could win.
A more thoroughly ideological Conservative—who is black though—would totally flummox the Dems. They really do NOT know what to do with a serious conservative black man—except trash him—which, as we will see in the coming days, won’t work with Mr. Cain.
I have a hard time getting excited for a guy who takes the RINO/Dem line on immigration too...and in his style can appear drunk, when really he was just relaxed (which I do believe was the case). The national campaign will eat him alive, I’m afraid... No offense to you Texans either, but I’m just not convinced the USA is ready for another Texan as President.
