  • Cain Officially Endorses Romney

    05/16/2012 3:32:05 PM PDT · by Perdogg · 17 replies
    One-time presidential front-runner Herman Cain endorsed Mitt Romney for president on Wednesday, saying a unified Republican front is critical to winning the White House this fall. “One way to achieve this goal of a ‘more perfect union’ is by getting Barack Obama out of the White House,” Cain said outside the National Republican Club in Washington. “Throwing our support and energy behind Mitt Romney is a big step in accomplishing this mission.”

    Over the last couple of months, the Bachmann campaign has been all but left for dead, failing to muster more than 2 to 4 percent in most credible polls since her "flash in the pan" Iowa straw poll victory. Going largely unnoticed, and after Bachmann's SC campaign staff had already attended a "farewell and thank you" dinner that many recognized as a "we did our best" appreciation gesture for her SC staff, Bachmann suddenly receives an enormous cash infusion into her campaign, allowing her to hire an extremely expensive, high brow political consultant, Wesley Donehue. Even more interesting - Wesley...
  • Herman Cain was never fond of Rick Perry

    When Herman Cain accused Texas Gov. Rick Perry of leaking damaging information about his rival last night, there was little love lost. Sources say there is no personal animosity between the two candidates. But Cain, in deflecting attention away from himself in this controversy, seized on a familiar target. Perry’s campaign has adamantly denied any involvement in a Politico story revealing sexual harassment allegations against Cain from his time at the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s. Not only did Cain suggest that Perry might be behind the leak — he stated it as a fact, despite a lack of...

  • Karl Rove finds the non-Romney candidates unacceptable

    10/28/2011 12:43:59 PM PDT · by Leaning Right · 66 replies
    Rove is very much in a “do I have to do everything myself” mode these days, which is why he’s also running the GOP’s congressional campaign as an independently funded venture. Here he is practically acting as a Romney surrogate on Fox and attacking Herman Cain, because actual Romney surrogates seem unable to.

    Las Vegas, Nevada— One day before a CNN Western Republican presidential debate, a new national survey indicates that Mitt Romney and Herman Cain are essentially tied for the lead in the race for the GOP nomination, with Rick Perry dropping to a distant third. .....According to the poll [CNN/ORC International Poll], only one third of Republicans and independents who lean towards the GOP say they will definitely support the candidate they are currently backing, with two thirds saying they may change their minds. "With only 33% of all Republicans saying that their minds are made up, it's far too early...

    Presidential hopeful Herman Cain isn't just a former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and head of the National Restaurant Association. He was also once a prolific writer, who up until January 2011 produced a weekly opinion column published by the conservative website WorldNetDaily. In at least one column, Cain seemed to condemn a proposal that is now a pillar of his highly touted 9-9-9 tax plan. On November 12, 2010, Cain wrote a column about rumors that Democrats would propose a consumption tax called a VAT. "The worst idea is a proposed national sales tax," Cain wrote. A 9% national sales...

    Cain's Gruesome (and Supposedly Humorous) Solutions for Illegal Immigration: At campaign stops in Tennessee yesterday, Cain put forward two separate plans for tackling the nation's immigration problem: An electrified fence along the border that would stop short the life of anyone trying to slip into the country illegally, and re-equipping border forces "with real guns and real bullets." This morning on Meet the Press he responded to the (unsurprising and immediate) backlash to his electric fence remarks, saying: "That's a joke. That's not a serious plan. I've also said America needs to get a sense of humor." Cain's Brainstorming Process:...

    Mitt Romney typically plays nice with presidential rival Herman Cain. But at a town hall here on the eve of Tuesday’s presidential debate, Romney managed to slip in a subtle swipe. Romney drew a contrast between his resume, which includes four years as governor of Massachusetts, and Cain’s, which does not include elected office. After talking about his experience going from Bain Capital to the governor’s mansion, Romney suggested that Cain was, perhaps, not quite as ready as he is for the Oval Office. “I was able to find ways to use my skills in a public sector setting, probably...

"We each have our own experiences, he’s a great guy. Vote for either one of us and you’ll be happy," Romney said, per POLITICO's Reid Epstein. Romney also called Cain a "terrific guy" and said voters should "give him a good look." That's not something Romney would say about a candidate he views as a real threat, and it's a reminder of how much Cain's rise has been mutually beneficial to...

    HOUSTON -- Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Thursday that he would definitely consider an invitation to run as the eventual nominee’s vice president, except if the nominee turns out to be Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Cain, who rocketed to the top tier of the GOP field in several recent polls, was asked by reporters on the campaign trail for his thoughts on a hypothetical invitation to run as the eventual nominee’s No. 2. After offering the obligatory comment that he intends to be the nominee, Cain said, “Quite frankly, based upon Gov. Perry’s position on some issues, I would...

    Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain — fresh off a surprise victory in the Florida straw poll that has re-energized his campaign — broke with House Republicans on Monday and urged Congress to fund the Federal Emergency Management Agency's disaster-relief program now, regardless of whether they can tie budget offsets to the bill. "I would make sure that FEMA got the money it needed, and if I had to go find the offsets later, go find it later. Stop playing with people's tragedies — these are real people we’re talking about," Cain said on CNN. Cain argued that keeping the disaster...
