Skip to comments.Cain: I'd Be Ahead of Obama By Now
Posted on 09/21/2012 12:42:23 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain says that if he was the partys nominee, he would probably have a substantial lead on President Barack Obama by now.
The reason is quite simple: I have some depth to my ideas, the former Godfathers Pizza CEO said in a speech at the University of Florida, The Gainesville Sun reports. He was speaking at the school as part of his College Truth Tour.

Cain never stops telling everyone how great he is. I still think he’s a good guy though.
Ok...You know if you were the nominee, that would mean you didn’t drop out at the first media swipe.
Romney has had that X 1000 and still is standing.
Well, then, I guess he should have stayed in the race.
Cain couldn’t stay ahead of Mitt Romney.
From what I could tell, there was no reason for him to drop out. He just didn’t want to take the crap anymore.
Herman brought a can-do attitude and a pleasant, humorous Happy Warrior demeanor. I miss him and hope he stays on the public stage. I know he has his CainTV but I’d like to see him involved with the next administration.
At least he campaigned/spoke in Detroit, 0bama hasn’t done that.
I really liked him a year ago, but in my judgement he was not ready for prime time. I think some of his ideas were not necessarily that deep, but I liked them anyway. He had my heart. Romney sort of has my head at this point. Best wishes to him in whatever he ends up doing.
“Whatever happened to that lawsuit against those women who falsely accused of him sexual harassment?”
Odd that - it went away instantly.
Plus- it was his wife that asked him to end it. Still wish he had stayed in. :(
SIGH... Cain could’ve been a great candidate... if only he weren’t such a lady’s man....
Well Herman then you should have controlled your little friend better. Yeah I wanted you to get the nod, but you screwed up, and then quit.
Come on, Herman. This doesn’t really help anything except your own ego. Time to stop giving the media sound bites and start rallying around the only hope we have.
he will replace Neal Boortz in Janaury
By 9.99 points?
I feel Cain is right on this point. Mitt has run a terrible campaign, I suspect this is due in no small part to traitors among his ranks.
I think the Massachusetts man has leftist friends from back when he ran for Governor of Massachusetts undermining his campaign. In fact in my gut I think theses same men supported him for Govern so that he could be used as a puppet for Romney care.
Go away Herman. Your schtick is really getting to be distasteful.
I wanted him for president. Maybe Mitt will be smart enough to pur him in charge of something.
One to change the bulb and two to stand around and say how much better they could do it.
Romney has had that X 1000 and still is standing.
Romney can do that because 0bummer and the MSM really don't have anything on him that should disqualify him. Unlike Cain, no bimbo eruptions with Mitt.
I supported Cain, but I doubt his claim, and this is the wrong time for it. The job at hand is to beat Obama. The thing we should be out to prove right now is that Obama can be beaten.
Great article! Thanks for posting it. Rick Perry and Newt would also be far ahead of Obama by now.
Herman, Herman, Herman. I liked and supported you while you were in the game. But you took yourself out of the action.... so please, Herman.. STFU, K?
He was my first choice..
Cain seems like a nice man but his persona is so ‘artificial’. He talks and acts as would an actor in a B movie and his speech sounds like poorly read lines from a script...........
Thank you for that - you articulated perfectly what I was trying to explain to someone the other day and just couldn't get it to come out right. This is exactly how I feel.
No worse than has 0h bummer, but the MSM covers for the Obamanation. That's a big advantage.
It sounds like the argument Cain is making is that Obama can be defeated, but we chose a chameleon instead of a lion. Sure, he sounds better than the other guy, but is that enough?
Whatever happened to that lawsuit against those women who falsely accused of him sexual harassment?
Two women back in the day got cash settlements in Lawsuits involving Cain. Did Cain file something against them or is this something else?
He can’t wait till after the election to spew his silliness? Why not help Romney instead of this trash talk
Oh, I get it, a funny Friday story.
Get lost, Herman.
I donated to Cain early, but Herman, SHUT UP. The goal is to kick Obama out, not tell us how great you are.
I think that I would be ahead of Obama by now.
For the life of me... I don’t understand the so called conservatives attacking our own today. It is like they want to go on record saying Romey is doing ALL the wrong things and can’t win! Makes me sick of those who are giving up!
Cain is one lying SOB and has a world class ego. Imagine finding out his little indescretions 50 days before this election.
I won’t deny that Obama has a gigantically unfair advantage in his almost worshiping press coverage among most all of the overwhelmingly democrat voting press core.
Seriously the kind of things they pay attention to and make issue of are basically designed to make this man look good, and never force him to face any tough questions about any of his policies.
They love the man almost like he is their God.
No lawsuit was ever filed.
Okay on the lawsuits but as I understand it the complaintants received compensation in the harassment claims. Cain didn’t pay I don’t believe but the entities he worked for did or that’s my understanding. In any case the info was enough to get him to drop out of the primary chase.
Romney couldn't stay ahead of Mc Cain.
You’re thinking of the one woman, possibly two, who settled with the organization Cain used to work for years ago. After the allegations came out in the past year about Cain having harassed other women and having an affair, I believe Cain threatened to sue those women. You’re confusing the women who settled years ago with the women Cain may have threatened to sue last year. As I said, I can’t recall if Cain did threaten to sue them specifically or just hired lawyers and made a general threat.
I am still pissed that he was run out of the race like he was. Romney was the last person I wanted on the ticket and I am holding my nose when I go to the polls to vote for him simply because he was picked by the establishment and he is from the East Coast especailly Massachusetts.
Herman, much as I love you, you proved beyond any doubt that you do not have the mettle to run for president.
You would not be ahead of Obama right now, because you quit when he said bad things about you.
Personally, I disagree. My big problems with Cain are two-fold: 1) no experience in elective office. I think that would be hammered by the Dems if he were the nominee. 2) Cain’s dialect would hurt him with a lot of voters who might abandon both he and Obama on election day.
But if you think the media is spinning wildly out of control to try to defeat Romney, imagine how shrill and vicious they would be if a black conservative were the Republican nominee. The campaign would be about nothing but race instead of the economy.
None of that is to say that I don’t like Herman Cain. I like a lot about him but, seriously, it’s a good thing he’s not the nominee. The Dems would eat him alive just as they did over his “mistress”.
Well, one of the job requirements for President is the ability to take crap.
Perhaps the turkey filter actually worked.
He’d be drowning in bimbo eruptions as he did in the GOP primary.
it’s kind of hard to be the nominee when you quit.
