    I don't and I think left wingers would be thrilled to have him nominated.
    I think he would stand a good chance.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    So if the race is going to be Cain vs Obama how can I cast my vote in order to prove I am not a racist?

    straw polls are nowhere near scientific. The delegates are basically hardcore party members who pay money to participate. Obviously Thursday night's GOP debate played a large role as well.

    I don't think he really has a chance in the primary, so how well he does in the general election is irrelevant. However, if he somehow did win the nomination, I don't see him having a chance in hell of winning. The biggest knock against him is that he has absolutely no record to run on. His 9-9-9 tax plan will never become reality, and is basically the same tired conservative economic orthodoxy we've heard again and again (lower individual and corporate income tax rates, decrease the number of brackets or have a flat tax, instituted FairTax or some sort of national excise tax, etc.) It's simply not gonna happen.

    It is meaningless.

    The only thing about someone who has not held an elected office is that you cot easily tell if what they are saying is real or bull ****. If someone who has held an elected office makes a claim about what the support or believe in then you can generally see if they are lying or telling the truth by looking at their voting record. For example a pollitician says they are pro-life but as govenor they appoint a pro-abortion judge to their state's supreme court, says they are against illegal immigration but enacts a law that gives to tuition for the children of illegals, says they love and respect the 2nd but voted for anti-2nd amendment laws, Says they are patriotic but supports outsourcing, says they think communism is wrong but supports outsourcing to communist countries then you know those politicians are lying their asses off.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You mean like Obama had a real voting record. A record of what? You mean like he was a community organizer?

    Herman Cain I know has a real record of running businesses. That's a record of success I can believe in.

    I did not vote for Obama.Of course I didn't vote for McCain either. A lib and a RINO doesn't seem like much of a choice.

    A business record won't tell us what he will do when he is office. Although since he is a business man there is the chance he might come up with acronyms that will sell more American jobs to foreign countries and some other unpatriotic activities.

    No, like he was a state legislator for seven years and a U.S. Senator for two years, and the President of the United Stated for 2 1/2 years. Like that.
