    Politico ^ | 1/4/11 | Juanna Summers
    Herman Cain’s not a candidate anymore, but he’s launching a new bus tour anyway. The former Godfather’s Pizza CEO announced plans to tour the country to raise support for the “9-9-9” plan that was the star of his aborted presidential run, hoping to rally congressional sponsors for his plan to replace the federal Tax Code with a 9 percent corporate tax, 9 percent personal income tax and a 9 percent national sales tax. The one-time Republican front-runner announced his “Cain’s Solutions Revolution” during a Fox News interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday night. “I started a new movement. The biggest...

    NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The candidates may be spending Thanksgiving in Iowa or New Hampshire instead of at home this year as the primary calendar quickly comes to an end with just six weeks until the first votes are cast. As noted last month, each month the story line seems to take a new shift, and yet again this month we have another new story with the rise of Newt Gingrich. Among Republicans, one in five (19%) would vote for Godfather Pizza CEO Herman Cain in the GOP primary while 16% would vote for former Massachusetts Governor...

    Republican presidential candidate and businessman Herman Cain today requested that Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan recuse herself from the upcoming Supreme Court hearing on Obamacare. As a political appointee in President Obama’s Justice Department, Justice Kagan strongly advocated for the government takeover of health care and during the bill’s debate, then- Solicitor General Kagan actively supported a government-run system and sent a jubilant email to then-Justice Department colleague Laurence Tribe saying: ““I hear they have the votes, Larry!! Simply amazing.” “I request that Justice Kagan recuse herself immediately from hearing the Obamacare case,” Cain said. “Members of the highest court...

    If elected president, Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain said Wednesday his top three priorities will be national security, the economy and energy independence. Cain spoke to close to 500 people, who attended the half-hour rally at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

Tickets to that event were $999 to hear him speak and $2,500 to have a private meeting and a photo with him. Although the event was scheduled for 5 p.m., Cain took the stage at 6:10 p.m. “We are...

    Good enough? “The video is being taken out of context,” said spokesman JD Gordon. “He was taking questions for about 30 to 40 minutes on four hours of sleep. He didn’t say anything wrong or in accurate; it just took him a while to recall the specifics of Libya.” Gordon added, “It just took him a while to gain his bearings.” The clip was posted unedited by the Journal-Sentinel so I don’t know what context he thinks was missing. Is there some context that would explain why he needed the editorial board to remind him whether Obama is pro- or...

That's why I kind of like Herman Cain's response to the media thugs. Cain isn't playing their game. I hope he checkmates them, move after move. Never play by their rules. Always set your own rules, or they will kill you. You can see their...

It’s a hatchet job, in my opinion,” Fassler told TheDC from his Phoenix, Ariz. office. “My gut tells me it’s a hatchet job.

    Herman Cain may be the only presidential candidate in history to actually benefit from a sex scandal. Just hours after Politico broke a story about accusations of sexual harassment against Cain, the former Godfather's Pizza CEO killed it during a luncheon speech at the National Press Club. And then to top it all off, he SANG. After very little prompting to reprise his "Imagine There's No Pizza" performance at the Omaha Press Club, Cain launched into a surprisingly beautiful rendition of the Christian hymn "He Looked Beyond My Faults" — an interesting choice given the sex scandal.

The unconventional web ad is “sort of a metaphor for the Cain campaign,” Hume said. “You can never quite figure out what the guy is quite up to.

    Last December, GOP presidential contender Herman Cain penned an interesting article about Jesus Christ that has been resurrected (no pun intended) and is getting some attention in the blogosphere. Published just five days before Christmas, the piece claims that Jesus was “a perfect conservative” and that “he…changed the world for the better.” In his article, Cain goes on to explain, though, the reasons why he believes that to be true. He writes: He helped the poor without one government program. He healed the sick without a government health care system. He [fed] the hungry without food stamps. And everywhere He...

    The author who calls himself simply Toure -- a regular guest on MSNBC, and before that on CNN -- is throwing rhetorical bricks at Herman Cain for Time magazine. His article is headlined "Is Herman Cain the Most Unctuous Black Man Alive? Why the Hermanator experience is making me sick." Toure compared Cain to a circus clown, called him a "buffoon," compared him to "rancid, spoiled, stinky, curdled milk" and dissed him (in the liberal mind) by calling him "the Black Sarah Palin." In the midst of that, he somehow scolds Cain for "sinking to teenage-level disses." He began: This...

Now, I desperately want to be an equal opportunity blogger, and at this point Herman Cain appears to be the co-frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination. Sure, I've had my fun with him in the past, and he has no shortage of foreign policy gaffes, but I figured that impromptu utterances during debates...

    Bill Maher may be anti-religion, but he's got faith in one thing: Herman Cain won't be the the 2012 Republican Presidential nominee. Maher bet CNBC correspondent Michele Caruso-Cabrera $1 million that Cain won't earn the GOP nomination, and shook hands on the wager during Friday night's taping of his HBO political comedy show Real Time with Bill Maher. Caruso-Cabrera was arguing that Cain's "incredible likeability factor" could carry him all the way when, Maher snarked back that he'd put a million dollars down against her one dollar that Cain won't win the nomination because Republicans can't deal with a non-white...

    There was one clear winner from Tuesday's Republican presidential debate, based on the simple metrics of name recognition: businessman Herman Cain's "9-9-9 Plan." Virtually all the candidates at the debate table had something to say about Cain's plan to replace the tax code with three, flat nine-percent federal taxes on consumption, business and income. Cain, once delegated to the remote wings of the debate stage, has enjoyed a surge in the polls ever since he won the straw poll in Orlando, Fla., last month, and at the first debate since he joined former Massachusetts Gov.

In fact, Cain's nomination represents what could be the last and best opportunity Americans have to pry our battered country out from the clutches of the increasingly strident, divisive, and...

During an appearance on the Steve Gill Show, Cain, the former chief of Godfather's Pizza, said Republican congressional leaders should ignore Obama's "scare tactics" about hurting "old people, children and puppy dogs." He called for Republicans to oppose raising the debt ceiling, a goal shared by the "No More Red Ink" campaign that explains House Republicans have it within their grasp simply to not raise the...

    We hear all about America’s problems every day. We can’t get away from them, especially when the bad news is compounded with more bad news about natural disasters. The latest economic and jobs news is yet another indication that this nation’s problems are getting worse and stifling our prosperity. And every time this administration or Congress tries to fix a problem, it gets worse. That’s because the administration believes more government, more spending and more taxes are the answer to everything. The real answer is less government, less spending and less taxation. After nearly $1 trillion in federal “stimulus” spending,...

"Well what's going on is, they're not being honest with the American people," said Cain. "The fact of the matter is, Ryan's plan represents giving people a choice -- but if you're 55 years of age...

    As news filtered in that heavily armed US Naval commandos shot an unarmed Osama bin Laden point blank between the eyes, I couldn't help thinking of the similar demise of our own Mohammed Yusuf, the late leader of Nigeria's Al-Qaeda affiliate - Boko Haram. Both Islamist leaders though unarmed at the time of capture were summarily executed without the benefit of trial. I shed no tear for their well deserved termination, but the circumstances surrounding their execution must be clarified lest such take-no-prisoners shoot-to-kill policy is abused. Not so long ago we were all witnesses to internet videos showing Nigerian...
  • Obama Opens Door, Herman Cain May Walk In

    If the recent Zogby poll is any indication that Herman Cain may be the Republican finalist for presidency of the United States, he may have to thank Barack Obama for proving that a person with black ancestors can reach the pinnacle of political success.

    NEIL CAVUTO, HOST: To a very disappointed Herman Cain, not only a Tea Party favorite for president. But did any of you catch that debate last week in South Carolina. Hands down, universally seen by those who love the guy and hate the guy, as now a very, very serious contender for president. Herman, I don't know, here. I think your party just punted today. What do you think? HERMAN CAIN, POTENTIAL GOP PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Neil, I agree with you. Here's, here's another example of lack of leadership, even the Republicans. If they had put together an aggressive proposal like...

    Herman Cain is the new exciting Republican candidate in the 2012 presidential race. He has won several straw polls and the first debate among 2012 Republican candidates. Cain, 65 years old, came from a successful business career, during which he returned restaurant chain Godfather’s Pizza to profitability and made the Philadelphia area’s Burger King branches the most profitable in the company. Now, he thinks he can turn around the US economy and create jobs with his 5-step plan (listed below). 1) Lower the corporate tax rate to 25 percent from 35 percent. Cain said the US is the only country...

    Herman Cain’s stock is on the rise. Only one in 10 Republican voters is buying Mitt Romney, but 30% are resigned to his being the nominee. Party leaders, major donors and rank and file conservative voters all seem to be waiting for someone new and special they can enthusiastically support. That eagerness is apparent in the rise of Herman Cain from obscurity to a 14% second-place showing in our poll. All it took was one solid recitation of pro-business, anti-politician talk at last week’s South Carolina Republican presidential debate. Conventional wisdom still believes Romney will be the nominee. Romney plans...

    2006: Stage Four Cancer. Where? Colon and Liver. “How bad is it, doctor?” “As bad as it can get,” was the answer. Following a second opinion, he was referred to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. There he received chemotherapy, followed by removal of 30 percent of his colon and 70 percent of his liver and more chemotherapy. Today, five years later, he is, by all standards, a cancer free walking miracle and life is just about “as good as it gets”! He, Herman Cain, was more than believable when I heard him shout, “The Lord is my Light...

    Of the two businessmen likely to be in the field for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, long-shot Herman Cain, savior of the Godfather‘s Pizza chain, makes the case that he is far more electable than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the presumptive front-runner in the race. Mr. Cain, whose bid has generated a surprising buzz in conservative circles, said in an interview that he admires Mr. Romney‘s business acumen and supported the former governor’s failed 2008 bid, but Mr. Cain argued that he possessed a greater ability to connect with voters and make things happen. “Romney is a successful businessman...

On ABC’s “Top Line” today, Cain – the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza – said he’s planning to use the coming months to determine his support among voters and donors. He said he’s “confident” that he could defeat President Obama. “Yes. If I didn't think I could -- if I didn't think I could win the Republican nomination, No. 1, and if I didn’t think that I could...
