I just sent 50 bucks to AFP because they are ADVERTISING IN MIAMI! AFP has told more people in Miami about Hussein and Solyndra than the Miami Herald and the Sun Sentinel and all the local TV stations COMBINED.

Mittens just finished..again..little applause. .He seems like he's going through the motions..a standard stump speech...he doesn't connnect with the audience.

NR's Jonah Goldberg now filling time.. banging away at Obama, biden..to provide a little gap between speeches.

' I predict that Cain gets a STANDING, SUSTAINED "O" WHEN HE'S INTRODUCED.

Also, Rudy speaks AFTER Cain..I wonder if he's going to defend Cain, attack the MSM..

Darned. He has not even caught a cold nor does he sound physically or emotionally worn down. Same dynamic, eloquent, energetic, baritone Herman Cain. How does this guy do it??!! After all that Politico crapola??!! Great speech.

No wonder they don’t like him, he’d tear Obama apart if they went with a Lincoln Douglas debate and no teleprompter. This man has fire, more than any of the past candidates that I’ve seen in my time here on our planet. Yeah, he’s a hard ass, but that’s what we need at this point in time. No pussy footin!

talking about priorities
1. Foggy foreign policy - Cain solution - Peace thru strength with clarity...clarify who our friends are and stop giving money to our enemies...our first friend we will stand with is the Nation of Israel
2. Boost economy. Simple 999 plan. Bold plan to fix. Can’t push it down the road. Replace corp, income, capital gain, death, payroll taxes. Addressing the criticism of national sales tax. Replace 10000 ways with one way...something we can see at the cash register...takes us thru the loaf of bread example...from farmer, miller, baker, trucker, grocery store...999 takes out the invisible taxes.
3. Energy independence strategy. Plenty of natural resources.

What I’ve heard so far is what he’s said in other speeches. He’s elaborating now on his business solutions.

He did start off by asking “Whose teleprompeters are these? they don’t belong to me, I don’t NEED them”.

Talking about foreign policy..peace through strength and CLARITY.

The business sector is the engine of the economy...speaking to 999.

Speaking to energy independence as well.

Very enthusiastic audience.

Cain presidency - EPA needs an attitude adjustment...they work for us!

Have to run..

Thanks, but I have to get back to work in a bit. Fridays are busy for me.

I think that’s all the pings. Sorry I missed this one because this was a live speech. Seems like Cain had another blistering speech. :)

When Cain talked about the EPA, he said the EPA works for the people and not the other way around, there was a big Standing-O. I also some black folks in the audience. They look very inspired.

Cain did good, indeed. I’m not surpise that he’s still at the top of the polls despite all the unfair attacks from the left media.

He do eloquently took several digs towards Obama.He saw the teleprompter and quipped he doesn’t need it said we have no leadership in DC and that he will not apologize for America.I just watched the next President of the United States.He quoted Reagan several times and was superb.The media will melt when he wins.

Me either; I was watching the live link but had to keep the sound down because I’m at work (lunch).

I’m sure it’ll be replayed or on youtube; I’ll have to catch it later.

While watching Cain just now live, for a moment, I transported my mind, my sentiment, into that of a LIBERAL.

And I thought "Crap! We are in BIG TROUBLE with this guy!"

Now I know why they are concerned. Cain will obliterate Obongo in those debates. He even cracked joke about the teleprompters when he started his speech, like, "get those outta here. I dont need no teleprompters!" ;-) They know this. ooooooh do they ever know this.
