    In a February 2008, Herman Cain used his syndicated column to endorse a candidate in the Republican primary. His choice? Mitt Romney. The former Massachusetts governor struck Cain as best equipped to "focus on the right problems" and make the "tough decisions" to solve them: "Romney has done that as a chief executive officer in business, as a governor and as head of the U.S. Olympics," Cain wrote, adding the noteworthy judgment that "he has done so while balancing political consequences, but not compromising fundamental principles of the founding of this country or free-market economics." Romneycare apparently wasn't seen as...

    Conservatives vs. 999ers -By: Larry Walker, Jr. -Under the 9-9-9 Plan, “95 percent of people making $1 million or more would get a tax cut that averaged $487,300.” ~Tax Policy Center -At a Michigan website entitled, North Star Writers Group, Herman Cain attempted to address some of the criticism to his 9-9-9 Plan. The article, dated October 16, 2011, is entitled, "9 responses to 9 false attacks on the 9-9-9 plan". But somehow Mr. Cain has confused what is merely constructive criticism with “attacks”. I mean it’s as if when one asks Mr. Cain a valid question these days,...

    While former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain’s poll numbers have been sky-high in recent weeks, the honeymoon may soon be over for him, says Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume. “The abortion blunder was inexplicable,” Hume continued. “It doesn’t walk it back when you say it ought to be the person’s choice but it is also illegal. I’m sorry — that doesn’t help. I suspect Herman Cain may have peaked and may begin to decline.”

    In a wide-ranging interview on Meet the Press today, Ron Paul talked about his plan to cut $1 trillion in spending, his hope that the government will eventually get out of the housing market, and his frustration at the U.S. military intervention in the Middle East. Paul also lamented the “uselessness” of some of the arguments in the GOP primary debates. “I mean, arguing over who mows Mitt Romney’s lawn,” Paul said. “In the midst of a crisis, a sovereign debt worldwide crisis, the biggest in the history of the world, and the financial system of the world is about...

    Republican presidential candidate Cain hadn’t been in the state for two months, but he was able to connect with a majority of about 800 conservatives at the Des Moines event and reassure them that he was pro-life. “In terms of preventing abortion on demand, I would not sign any legislation for government-funded abortion,” Bloomberg quoted the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO as telling the audience, as he sought to defend his Oct. 19 statement to CNN that although he opposed abortion,“it’s not the government’s role or anybody else’s role to make that decision.” “I would not sign any legislation that in...
  • Cain’s 9-9-9 Becomes 9.1-9.1-9.1; Vegas Hosted Fight Night; Bachmann’s NH Staff Quits

    The Primary Week That Was: CainÂ’s 9-9-9 Becomes 9.1-9.1-9.1; Vegas Hosted Fight Night; BachmannÂ’s NH Staff Quits This past week was, I think, the most interesting of the campaign so far. If we look back to a week from today, Rick Perry introduced his very solid energy plan as the first of three parts of his overall economic plan. He has also begun laying out his flat tax proposal. That rollout showed a campaign finding some new energy and generating some positive headlines, a change in its fortunes from the previous couple of weeks. But Perry came into the week...
  • Cain’s 999 Plan – Hell on the Middle Class and Doomsday for the Poor & Retired

    Anyone up for paying $18,000 sales tax on the next $200,000 house you purchase? I didn’t think so. And for those of us who work our way up the ladder of success at the workplace that next promotion may require moving to another city or state another house and another $18,000 in sales tax. We are either going to become a nation of renters or go bust trying to move up the ladder of success. (Hell on the Middle Class) Cain’s 999 plan is really the 999 plus 10 plan. Maybe you forgot that you no longer have a Social...
