The release is 9 pages — and you can read it here: http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/news_politics/2011/11/cain-blankets-florida-with-chairs-in-all-67-counties.html

At this point I’m thinking Gingrich/Cain or Cain/Gingrich.

I agree. He wants to nail tight the “three” key states of FL, OH and PA. I wish he would have reps in all of obama’s 57 states..

It will be Cain because of Gingrich bagage. Romney is the establishment candidate so expect A LOT of flak coming Cain’s way. It’s going to be like B-17s over Germany in WWII.

Cain is going to need our support in every possible way. Cain is the man, I believe, that can save our cRepublic from the Abysis. I listened to him on the radio for years and he was always good and a gentleman.

The rats in the media know that people could trust Cain and this is why they are attacking his Charater with bogus charges. Make no mistake Cain is fear by the Washington elite in both parties. They KNOW they can’t control him like they can with Obama or Romney.

It would be great if Cain can beat the lying scum attacking him and go on to win.

See Coulter’s brilliant analysis here. http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=47438

If Romney gets the nom, my enthusiasm will basically be non-existent.

“At this point I’m thinking Gingrich/Cain or Cain/Gingrich.”

I’ve been thinking the same thing. There is one glitch, however-Are they both residents of Georgia? If so, there is a 12th amendment problem. I think they would be ineligible for Georgia’s electoral votes. Check it out.

Actually, I think the electors can’t vote for both, so they could vote for Pres, but not VP.

Well, there’s 5 key states if you are going to include OH.

IL, PA, OH, VA and FL.

Romney needs 3/5 to win. FL + PA + IL is probably the easiest.

If Cain locks down FL and OH, that leaves Romney with PA + IL + VA as his only out.

Cain has a solid lead in OH, has taken the lead in FL, has a slighte lead in IL and has deadlocked PA and VA.

My view has always been more to the point as written by Thomas Sowell this week to buttress Cain/Gingrich. Having this intellectually and spiritually tough man at the helm would start a systemic deconstruction of the societal malaise that started before the last century and was put into high gear by LBJ. I love Newt’s ability to cut to the chase while skewering the premise at the same time.

The president needs to focus on the big picture and manage the playing field while his right hand man must be able to stand before the nation and take on the liberal and establishment goons at a moments notice to do the job originally set for the VP. Gingrich can have the latitude to set the battlefield while Cain focuses on moving the country forward.

Snip from the article;

What role does race play in all this?

It is probably not racism, as such, that motivates these attacks on Herman Cain. The motivation is far more likely to be politics, but politics makes a prominent black conservative like Clarence Thomas or Herman Cain far more dangerous to the Democrats than an equally prominent white conservative.

The 90 percent black vote for Democrats is like money in the bank on election day. A prominent black conservative who offers an alternative view of the world is a serious danger politically, because if that alternative view has the net effect of reducing the black vote for Democrats just to 75 percent, the Democrats are in big trouble at election time.

In this political context, merely defeating a black conservative at the polls or at confirmation hearings is not enough. He must be destroyed as an influence in the future — and character assassination is the most obvious way to do it.

And keep in mind Sanatorium has something like 13% in his home state (PA). If he drops out, virtually all his voters go to Cain...

Good stuff! Thanks!

Guys, if it gets too tactical on this here thread, remember, loose lips sink ships. Herman Cain's opposing camps, MSM sycophants and toadies, turncoats, agents provocateur, Karl Rove, et. al. are reading these threads as well as the "oppos" skunk works at the White House.

Privately "Freepmail" the more sensitive and specific stuff, tactics, organizational moves, etc. Not bein' paranoid, just sayin, one big happy family here. We got a lot of lurkers from this place and that place, it is easy to forget.

Practice good OPSEC, now lets continue to get Iowa, NH and SC further fortified as well. ;-) The CONSERVATIVE ALTERNATIVE TO STOPPING MITT ROMNEY. TIME IS SHORT.

It was fun the first dozen times, or so. After that, it’s just an overly large and unnecessary distraction when you’re trying to read other posts.

For the record, I’m a cash-contributing Cain supporter, so don’t accuse me of being a Perrywinkle, Paultard, Newtierooter, or Mittbot.

Exactly right! Did you see the article about an investigator who has voice analysis software that has greater accuracy than polygraph? He analyzed Bialek’s statement and said she is lying about what she says Herman did to her, he says Herman is telling the truth.

“It will be Cain because of Gingrich bagage.”

You’ve got it. Newt is a brilliant intellect and a great debater, better than all the other pubbie candidat es put together. If he weren’t Newt, he’d be my candidate in a heartbeat, with Cain for VP. Cain, however, has real character, while Newt’s shown himself far to willing to be flipped by the libs on far too many occasions. That inclines me to believe they have something devastatig on Newt that they’re just waiting to use if he ges the nomination. Right now their flak’s almost all aimed at Cain, meaning he’s he one they really fear. HERMINATE OBAMA!!

I think it will be Cain vs Romney in the end due to Gingrich baggage (both on the policy and personal side). Gingrich’s baggage will begin to be aired as Romney is threatened and as Gingrich rises in the polls.

Cain strikes me as being the kind of solid manager personality with a steady hand that you would want to have in control. Between the two, not necessarily the more intellectual.

Gingrich strikes me as having a deeper grasp of issues. Someone that you would want to be there to analyze things. Between the two, not necessarily the more inspiring leader.

In that order, I think they would make a good synergistic team. In reverse order, not so much so.

I had the privilege of being a young manager in Xerox Corporation in the seventies. Our approach was always to surround ourselves with strong support and delegate to strong leaders.

I really like to see leadership taking place in this manner. The strength of Cain’s campaign is this approach. That is why we need this approach to management right now.

Go Cain!

I agree.

There has been a trend on Jay Leno's Tonight Show: attack Republicans one candidate at the time. There was Palin, then Bachmann. Now it is Cain. He spent an incredible amount of time ridiculing Cain on Wednesday (I don't watch him every evening). He still attacks Bachmann but less. On those shows I have seen, it's Republicans, hardly ever Democrats.

Ditto that...

Tea Partier friends of mine on the Cain Bandwagon for over a yr & 1/2, noted about three weeks ago the validity of Cain Gingrich below...

Newt would be the Cheney of the Cain Administration, i.e. Newt knows how the sausage is made, Herman wants to eliminate or change all these processes, Newt is the go to guy for Herman as to how to get it done.

It really is starting to make a lot of sense....

FWLIW, I’ve been on the Cain bandwagon since 2004. I voted for him in the Senatorial primary against Johnny Isakson. Still have the Cain/2004 lapel pin, which I have pointed out to Mr. Cain on two occasions earlier in the year.

Yep and means he is the Top Candidate too. That’s why they are throwing everything at Cain and not Romney.

Mitt may have picked up some Perry voters, but I would be willing to bet most Perry supporters are conservatives. Thus, they will go to the Cain camp.

Romney is too much of a say anything flip floping Liberal. Yes he is a great speaker, but so is Obama. I don’t see how anyone can support Romney and expect the guy to change the direction Washington is leading our country.

At any rate, I honestly beleive Romney would lose it. Cain.... He would win no doubt.
