Cain tops Chambliss
Politico ^ | 12/4/2012 | Katie Glueck

Posted on 12/04/2012 2:40:50 PM PST by entropy12

Herman Cain would crush Sen. Saxby Chambliss in a Republican primary if the pizza mogul were to run in 2014, according to a poll released Tuesday. Cain led Chambliss (R-Ga.) 50 percent to 36 percent in a survey from Public Policy Polling.


TOPICS: Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: cain; chambliss; georgia; primary
I hope Herman decides to run for senator from Georgia.

I hope he runs. I thought he was not a good presidential candidate, for many reasons, but I think he’d be excellent in the Senate.

Cain was treated very badly by the media. He’d make a good senator, I think.

It is funny how MSM always refer to Cain as the Pizza man. How about Mathematician, Rocket Scientist, or his successful carers in very large corporations in non-Pizza operations?

Bimbo eruptions by the dozen did not hurt B.J. Clinton from winning 2nd term.

Now we need to find a candidate to oust that drunken sot Issackson.

Cain wasn't vetted before he ran. The problem with a sexually active adulterous republican candidate is that he won’t pass muster with a large part of the base. His past did not bother me. I would have loved for him to be president. A Dhimmicrat candidate with his 'private' credentials would have swept the other candidates.

I followed news about the bimbo eruptions closely when Cain was in the run. I have not seen a shred of evidence of adultery. Friendly flirting is not adultery. It is a norm in corporations.

Me too. I can’t see how the evangelicals can be happy with what they got, a politician who co-sponsored a bill in Illinois legislature holding the abortionist free of murder charge when a live baby born from botched abortion is allowed to be killed by piercing its head. But nobody accused them of being rocket scientists either.

I agree. I supported him for a while, but think you're right. The Senate would be a great home for him. Expect controversies, though -- for both sides.

Bingo! on all that. Agree strongly, strongly enough to have the cancelled check and picture with Herman to prove it. Wish he had toughed it out in the primary process.

I think it quite likely that what we saw was some combination of that, him bumping into Northeastern feminazis for the first time, and sexual harassment gold diggers.

Yes, Cain could win the Primary election... but what about the General election? That’s what I care about.

Bimbogate got to Cain through his wife. It’s quite likely the allegations were vastly overblown if not total nonsense. But she was upset and he didn’t want to put her through that grinder.

No analogous situation existed for Bill Clinton.

In the secular world it isn’t, but Christian standards of conduct beg to differ. Not as though his enemies had the slightest care for Christianity.

I live in GA. Saxby Chambliss is a POS that definitely needs to retire.

Cain either couldn't control himself, or caved under false and easily refuted accusations. If it's the former, then no thanks.

If it's the latter, then I'll chalk his giving up to inexperience campaigning in the public spotlight and gladly support him.

I hope and pray it's the latter, because we need real Conservatives now more than ever.

I really like Herman Cain. Fresh ideas, a smart man, God-fearing and a sense of humor. Reminds me one one of my first bosses. He was never afraid to get his hands dirty and always worked the problems. An infectious positive attitude. Herman has those same qualities.

I wish him well.

Yes me too. I voted for Herman when he ran agains’t Johnny Isakson for Senate. Isakson is our other RINO senator who also needs to be primaried.

I don’t lie. I just said I believed the story....be it true or a lie in actuality

And if it is a fact it does not modify my admiration of Cain.

Likewise. I still have the pin from that race. Pointed it out to Herman when he was doing a meet and greet before the state convention in Macon in 2011. Told him “Some of us aren’t Johnny-come-lately Herman Cain supporters” while pointing at my lapel. He liked that quite well.

That is exactly my conclusion. Cain’s wife was quite disturbed with the attacks on her husband. All her life she had seen her husband help scores of people. So she must have been confused and perturbed with all those allegations — ORIGINATING WITH CHICAGO CONNECTION...every one of them!

By the same token, Obama has never been vetted. The sexually active adulterous male is crucified on the basis of a virtuous bimbo, whose basic rights of womanhood were so callously trampled, while bathhouse Barry skates: go figure.....????

Absolutely. He has the full protection of the MSM

I don’t know how to fix that. The nation is close to disolving at this time. And I can’t figure how to prevent that, nor sure if we should try
