Herman Cain launches ‘Cain’s Solutions Revolution’ to ‘keep 999 alive’
Yahoo News ^ | 010412 | Dylan Stableford

Posted on 01/04/2012 8:08:18 PM PST by Fred

Herman Cain appeared on Fox News Wednesday night to make what was billed as a "very big announcement" on Sean Hannity's show. Very big it was not.

The former Republican hopeful and pizza chain CEO did not endorse a current GOP candidate, as some had predicted he might. Nor did he announce he was getting back into the 2012 race, as Hannity teased he could.

Instead, Cain announced the launch--or continuation--of his 999 economic plan with another catchy tagline: "Cain's Solutions Revolution."

"The biggest comment when I ended my candidacy was, 'Keep 999 alive,'" Cain said. "And that's what this is about. The first solution we're going to promote actively is '999: The Revolution.'"

Cain continued: "The thing that didn't happen in Iowa--and it generally doesn't happen at a lot of the debates--is not enough is discussed about solutions, how you will fix things."

999 is a lousy idea. Cut and simplify taxes, sure. But don’t add a damned federal sales tax.

Glad to see Mr. Cain taking a proactive role, and continuing to push for a total overhaul of the federal tax code. 999!

Hermann Cain is an almost invisible speck in my rearview mirror.

He was F’d by the LSM you idiot! Check out Herman’s record and do a little research into what happened to the media’s claims into the whore’s that wrongfully accused him. Can you say “crickets”.

You are exactly what is wrong with this country. Please go back to your American Idol and People magazine. You boor me!

Unfortunately for America you are right. Herman Cain was the best choice the true Conservative’s in America had in getting rid of the Soros/Fascist PPOS we are stuck with. Sadly the LSM, Axlerod and his hordes of RAT douchebags killed his chances. A very sad day for America.

I miss Herman. I wonder who, if anyone, he’ll endorse.

And if you order today, you will receive these four valuable coupons good for free extra large soft drinks at the Godfather’s Pizza near you.

Sorry, Herman. If you’d stayed in and fought it out, I would have stayed in your corner.

This is not going to cut it.

It’s time for Cain to either come out and get behind one of our candidates and work to get them elected - or go home and be quiet.

It’s not all about YOU, Herman. It never was.

Face it; There was some truth to it otherwise he would have sued the shiet out of them for slander. If you were applying for a job and some women you never met before start sending letters to your possible employer saying you sexually harrassed them would you walk away? Helllllll no, I would go all out sue crazy, even go so far as to try to have them arrested. All Cain did was say “ don’t know who the are, never met them before”....WTF is THAT?

I’m hoping Bachmann,Palin,Cain and Perry (when he drops out after SC if not sooner) endorse Santorum/Gingrich.
Now before you dismiss Gingrich as a VP consider this. Next to Biden a Gingrich is a super genius.

Much of Cain’s problem was thoroughly exploited by Romnellians from what I could determine , Including a major local talk show whorst here in Wisconsin who seems to be angling for a prominent DC staff appointment that
mercilessly droned on for weeks against Cain until Cain announced his deoarture. .

When Cain was asked about camoaign contributions Cain explained he was using them to pay off staff and suppliers. We’ill see if that satifies some of the FR beefs posted in FR’s.

The interview concluded with Cain stating he will be setting up a kind of a “999 think tank” but when asked about funding did not signal a readiness to accept any.

He would walk away before his ego let him be #2 to anyone.

Ditto! No way Newt will settle for VP. He is too much of a narcissist. His personality matrix's Obama’s.

Oh spare me your drivel!

This guy still had huge support and was taking in huge contributions. His QUITTING did nothing but made him look guilty, and made his supporters (like me) who defended him, look like fools.

His quitting emboldened the LSM, and made him look like what he is...a QUITTER! I could give a rats arse what Herman has to say.

As far as me being part of the problem...i beg to differ. Part of the problem are people like Cain who talk tough, then accept what the LSM says, and quit! Sorry pal, but anybody can quit! This was a weak, gutless, and needless action by Cain. So now he wants to get back into the action and be relevant again? Sorry, but I have no interest in listening to what he has to say...it no longer carries any weight with many of us who used to support him.

I get the idea that this was getting to his wife.

Just like Rats, just like what they did with Sarah Palin’s family and probably threatened to do if Sarah Palin threw her hat formally into the ring. Nothing too sacred for Rats to tread on in their quest for power, absolutely nothing.

I wanted Cain, Bachmann, Palin or Paul RYan to win and they all are not going to be the nominee now. So I have been let down. Rick Santorum is the only choice left for me.

“999 is a lousy idea. Cut and simplify taxes, sure. But don’t add a damned federal sales tax.”

Art Laffer said that Herman Cain’s tax plan would get the economy booming again.

You do know who Art Laffer is, right?

I think I’ll trust his opinion more than yours.

Do you care about the truth?

Or are you trying to help the media spread the lies?

Even Ann Coulter said the accusations were utterly unbelievable.

http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=47857

And the Former Chairman of Board of NRA tried to get the truth out to the media, but they weren’t interested.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2816755/posts

He said that one woman who claimed that Herman Cain had felt her up, had hit on this guy the very first day he was on the job! [Sharon Bialek] And he said that she had left the company before he even hired Herman Cain! So that proves Herman Cain was innocent!

Remember? Herman Cain kept aying he didn’t even know the woman!!!

Fast forward to the 12:30 min mark on the audio at the link above.

Absolutely right! We have a lot of new Freepers and many of them seem to be naive about who the Democrats are and what their plans for this country are.

What’s wrong with having an issue PAC as quite a separate quest from the presidency?

If he has an idea that would get America’s balance sheet back in the black, we should be all ears.
