I was thinking the same thing last night. I’ll get a chance to vote for Palin.......on DWTS.

I would like to photoshop that Undefeated poster, to show her holding white flags.

“I’m already sold on this guy - and my cousin just pointed out another benefit - I confess, I would be racially motivated to vote for him - just to make it impossible for Democrats to keep using the “race card”. Plus - he’s relaxed and has a great sense of humor!!!

If you haven’t had a chance to listen to Herman Cain speak you should take the time to hear what he has to say.

Bio on Herman Cain:

Herman Cain is running for president. He’s not a career politician (in fact he has never held political office). He’s known as a pizza guy, but there’s a lot more to him. He’s also a computer guy, a banker guy, and a rocket scientist guy. Here’s his bio:

• Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics.

• Master’s degree in Computer Science.

• Mathematician for the Navy, where he worked on missile ballistics (making him a rocket scientist).

• Computer systems analyst for Coca-Cola.

• VP of Corporate Data Systems and Services for Pillsbury (this is the top of the ladder in the computer world, being in charge of information systems for a major corporation).

All achieved before reaching the age of 35. Since he reached the top of the information systems world, he changed careers!

• Business Manager. Took charge of Pillsbury’s 400 Burger King restaurants in the Philadelphia area, which were the company’s poorest performers in the country. Spent the first nine months learning the business from the ground up, cooking hamburger and yes, cleaning toilets. After three years he had turned them into the company’s best performers.

• Godfather’s Pizza CEO. Was asked by Pillsbury to take charge of their Godfather’s Pizza chain (which was on the verge of bankruptcy). He made it profitable in 14 months.

• In 1988 he led a buyout of the Godfather’s Pizza chain from Pillsbury. He was now the owner of a restaurant chain. Again he reached the top of the ladder of another industry.

• He was also chairman of the National Restaurant Association during this time. This is a group that interacts with government on behalf of the restaurant industry, and it gave him political experience from the non-politician side.

Having reached the top of a second industry, he changed careers again!

• Adviser to the Federal Reserve System. Herman Cain went to work for the Federal Reserve Banking System advising them on how monetary policy changes would affect American businesses.

• Chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank. He worked his way up to the chairmanship of a regional Federal Reserve bank. This is only one step below the chairmanship of the entire Federal Reserve System (the top banking position in the country). This position allowed him to see how monetary policy is made from the inside, and understand the political forces that impact the monetary system.

After reaching the top of the banking industry, he changed careers for a fourth time!

• Writer and public speaker. He then started to write and speak on leadership. His books include Speak as a Leader, CEO of Self, Leadership is Common Sense, and They Think You’re Stupid.

• Radio Host. Around 2007—after a remarkable 40 year career—he started hosting a radio show on WSB in Atlanta (the largest talk radio station in the country).

He did all this starting from rock bottom (his father was a chauffeur and his mother was a maid). When you add up his accomplishments in his life—including reaching the top of three unrelated industries: information systems, business management, and banking—Herman Cain may have the most impressive resume of anyone that has run for the presidency in the last half century.

Apologies for the multiple posting. Not sure what happened.

Have you seen the gay mafia in action? He would have never gotten anywhere had he said what you are saying.
He deflected the issue.

B.O. and the left are advocates on this issue.
Dick Cheney is not.
But this not really something to argue about.
I understand your point.

No worries about the multiple posting.

And just so you know... I would take Cheney over the present “Occupy the White House” squatter anytime! :-)

Did you watch Chenys interview by Hannity? Because of his health, Cheney doesn’t have any fight left.

Mitt Romney is the nominee. Obama wins a 2nd term. Prepare for it. And I do not post this as a Hope, but as a dire warning to be heeded by those wise enough to hear it.

Yes, I agree, Cain absolutely does know how to delegate. I was just referring to how Sarah got caught stumbling when asked about the "Bush Policy" (or something to that effect). She also knew how to delegate.

The media had a field day of humiliating her on that issue, not just a day but weeks. Only because she was a woman, and their first woman president HILLARY never made it, and never will.

Cain will need to have the knowledge to speak to those issues on the fly. There are no delegates in a debate, and he can't afford to let himself be played.

He may not be my candidate, undecided at this point, BUT I will vote for him if he is, and I do not want him to be used and played by media, they are already trying to use his race against him. Makes me sick.

I would if it weren’t for his foreign policy. I’m done with nation building.

If the health of Mr. Cheney is an issue, how would you feel about a Cheney/Palin ticket?

Nicely put.
Some here would like to bully Conservatives into voting for “there” guy, or party if you will. I will vote for a conservative if one runs. (re:Cain) I get the choice of voting for the Communist: Obama, or The Socialist Perry, Romney etc... No thanks! As you said at what speed to we get to the cliff.

If nothing else, I believe we can count on holding the house and the senate after 2012. I can be satisfied with that.

I'm not so sure about that. Turnout is key. Consider 2008; until Sarah stepped into the picture, McCain was driving a huge portion of the electorate to stay home. Without Palin as his running mate, McCain's loss would have been epic. If we get another Dole or another McCain as the candidate, state and local races will suffer.

Thanks for that - I’m already sold on Cain. It’ll be useful to share around in the coming weeks and months!

I still haven't endorsed anyone, I'm still not happy about this field (and my predictions about Perry came true, he fizzled quickly and is now just splitting the conservative vote more). Each of the announced candidates has a major (not minor... I'm not a "purist" no matter how the Perrybots make that claim) flaw that will make it difficult for them to beat Obama (even though Obama sucks royally and should be easy to beat on paper given how lousy the economy is)

Of course, we have to deal with the cards we're dealt. I have no idea what the ballot will look like when my state finally votes in March (the defacto nominee will likely have been decided long before my state votes).

But looking at the candidates we have now, I've grouped them into three categories:

WOULD BE PLEASED TO VOTE FOR:
Bachmann
Santorum
Cain

MEH:
Roemer
Perry
Romney

GO AWAY:
Gingrich
Johnson
Paul
Huntsman

The Republican field is uninspired and I’m not committed to any one candidate. I may find myself casting a protest vote in the primary.

Conservatives have watched Bush go soft with the Medicare D, mini-stimulus, TARP and auto bailouts.

Little known fact is that Bush's Medicare D plan saved Medicare $90 billion a year by introducing free market aspects to the plan and allowing generics instead of brand names. He enlisted Wal*Mart and the other large drug retailers to make special deals for Medicare customers. At Wal*Mart they can get just about anything they need for four bucks.

TARP was imposed upon him by the world situation. In the middle of the night someone was electronically withdrawing billions of dollars an hour from money market accounts and if not stopped immediately it would have crashed the world's banks.

He had no stimulus and was not involved with the auto industry. That was Obama. Yet, so many are eager to join the Democrats and media in bashing Bush erroneously. The media blamed him for everything except polio for eight years and reported noting good that he did. They even made the good sound bad. Therefore, I guess it is normal that many conservatives would accept some of the lies as truth.

"I've grouped them into three categories:"

That makes more sense than one list in descending order - and would pretty-much agree with your choices.
Hard to believe in a nation of 300 million with more than half leaning right that this is the cream of the crop - we surely have our work cut out for us.
