Good News: Rick Perry slides. Bad News: Herman Cain rises.
By Andrew McCleese
Well I guess let’s start with the good. Rick Perry is finished and dropping like a stone. That guy would have been as bad, but probably worse than Obama across the board. He already has the globalist sell out pedigree going into 2012. The bad news is this rocket ship Herman Cain. Now tied with Romney for the lead. I just don’t get it. True, this is just GOP primary voters in this poll (I never have voted in a primary, I have always abhorred the very concept of a party primary) and Cain is still down almost 10 pts in a national election against Obama, but this is all that matters for the nomination. His skyrocketing is after the last debate, which I now attribute to his cancer story. Not many people knew that, he got a standing ovation, and that is the “image” people want of an American President (especially Republicans). So tough I beat the crap out of pancreatic cancer. I also think people are falling for this bankster tax scheme 9-9-9. So he still wants to take your labor and give it to a private central bank, THEN on top of that he wants to throw a 9% tax on top of an average 7% sales tax? Don’t buy a car or house or boat or hell, even a really nice T.V. now. Uncle Sam is going to tap you for $4,500 more on that $30,000 car. Then everybody is just oblivious to the fact that he is a Greenspan-Bernanke-Fed apologist (don’t have time to go there now).
I wonder how many people actually looked at his tenure at Godfather’s Pizza and his rise up the corporate chain. I don’t want to dog him too much, but he was not a job creator at Godfather’s, he maximized profits by shitcanning a bunch of people and closing over half the Godfather’s pizza stores. You know, that’s fine and how you destroy misallocated capital but those again are sorts of things shouldn’t be rocket science (which Cain points out he is one – ballistics mathematician) . I mean, I don’t hate the guy like, well, pretty much every other politician out there, he is just more of the same and another guy who is going to support the police state, corporate welfare (already supported TARP), foreign wars, be a slave to Israel and business as usual on Wall Street. Otherwise, he is a party puppet at this point despite his humble upbringing. He desires to be in the ruling class. I am sure he would do things like opening up drilling, cutting the budget and end a bunch of this global warming EPA nonsense, maybe attempt to do something about the personal mandate (not sure what other than stump) and those all would be positives. But I am tired of settling. He doesn’t appear to be electable nationally either.
Herman Cain has moved into a tie with Mitt Romney atop the field of Republican presidential candidates, according to a new CBS News poll, while Rick Perry has fallen 11 percentage points in just two weeks.
The poll shows Cain, who stood at just five percent support two weeks ago, now holding 17 percent support among Republican primary voters. That puts the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO into a tie with Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, whose support has essentially held steady over the past two weeks. Perry, meanwhile, has dropped from 23 percent support to just 12 percent support over the past two weeks, a sign that the Texas governor’s shaky debate performances – in which he has alienated portions of both the Republican base and the party establishment – have taken their toll.
