He might be Gingrich’s VP. We’ll see how the caucuses and primaries shake out.

Good. The man’s a fighter. I want a fighter. I want a POTUS who loves this country and will fight for it.

I’d rather have Newtie as the VP (sorta like Cheney being “management”).

LMAO.... Why in the heck would he feel a need to even announce such a thing?

My concern is that as little as a month ago he had no problem with that concept. If he were still running behind Mittens, would he still be on his bandwagon?

Don’t they all say they don’t want to be VP at this point?

Ask any one of them if they would be someone’s VP and every one of them will say, “No. I’m running for President, not Vice President.”

No he didn't. He said he would only be VP with someone he could strengthen. He never mentioned Romney at all.

but of course accuracy and intellectual honesty go right out the door once you mention Cain to the GOPEstablishementbots.

You mean Gingrich will be Cain’s VP. Cain is more of the CEO, while Newt is more of the ideas guy.

Hopefully because he wants to be the Prez. Herman would be a great VP. I would be as excited for a Romney/Cain ticket as I was the Cain/Palin ticket.

What did I mention to you. Take a look at your posts.

Don't start crying to the mods again if people start punching back at you.

Love your passive aggressive posting style. Flame out at Cain, then pout when you are called on it.

Why would Cain wanna be anyone's VP. He's leading in the polls.

No just Huck lying, again.

Cain never said any such thing. He did say he would not be interested in being a VP for a candidate he would not strengthen.

All you GOPbots immediately ran around and spun that as Cain saying he WOULD be Romney's VP.

But I know, little things like accuracy and fact go right out the window the movement you GOP bots hears "Cain".

There are several dupes on this forum who don’t understand that. Cain would be a great VP in any administration IMHO.

In following these threads there have been many, many FReepers that felt Cain was a Trojan horse for Romney since Herman Cain supported Romney in the 2008 GOP Primaries.

That Herman Cain as a reward for stirring up the GOP pot Romney would “reward” Cain with the VP spot.

Just My Observations

Maybe his research into the smear campaign is leading back to Mutt.

He’s had a lot of time to be in Mitt’s company recently. Maybe he’s seen the true measure of the man’s windsock nature.

(sorta like Cheney being “management”).

That didn't exactly work out to most conservatives satisfaction. Cheney was a great hawk, but he failed to rein in Bush's reckless spending.

Additionally, as far as I can tell the Departments of Energy and Education are still open. You would think having Cheney and a GOP congress from '04-06 we could have gotten at least one of those agencies out of our lives for good.

He didn’t announce it. He was asked a specific question by Cavuto.

My thoughts as well. His investigation may afford him the opportunity to learn a lot of disappointing things about his competition and the behind the scenes shenanigans.

Can you explain why in the Orlando debate, Cain chose Mittens as his favorite candidate out of everyone up there? Not any of the other Conservatives, but Mittens. I guess truth and the mans own words go out the window when we are talking about Cain.

I think BREAKING the announcement on Savage's show was the subtle hint that Herman Cain no longer endorses Mitt Rino.

PERIOD!

I figure Cain rightfully distancing himself from Romney, and positioning himself for Gingrich if something happens there as well.

I’m sure American conservatives are telling him they don’t like Romney.

No conservative would.

However, RINOmney would make a great VP for the Obamaloon.

He’s just as clueless as Biden, but he sounds wonderful.

Herman just said this on Savage. It would make no sense, Romney isn’t conservative and Herman would be muzzled.

He didn’t “announce” it. He was asked the question by both Cavuto and Savage. Both asked him that question today.
