    It would be interesting to see the black voters response if Caine was rep nominee. My suspicion is he would be labeled an Uncle Tom, sad really.

    I don't know about you, but I'm still willing to give him a chance. He has apologized for his comments and talked to Muslim leaders. Maybe he has actually learned something, at least it will be a good excuse.

    However, there are no perfect candidate. Obama certainly isn't. Cain may not be perfect, but the other candidates are much worse.
    Rick Perry - He turns too many people off, and he is not bright enough. Just listen to his comment about what we would do if Pakistan lost control over their Nuclear weapons. He is going to be made a fool in the international environment, where he can't rely on rehearsed answers.
    Mitt Romney - Major Flip Flopper. Does anyone know what he stands for or what he really will do in power? He can't be trusted and does not desverve to become president. I rather have Obama.

    In this environment I think Cain is the best candidate. He is intelligent, good speaker, and a quick learner.

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.
    I think having no record is still better than having Obama's record...Obama had next to no record when he won. The 9-9-9 plan is a great plan...the status quo is getting us nowhere and there is nothing more fair than a flat tax or a consumption tax.

    On other notes. He's the only republican that has said anything about health care other than "I'm gonna repeal Obamacare" congratu****inglations. You and every other republican. Cain actually gives ideas on how to improve on the broken system. He's the only candidate that doesn't **** himself when he's asked a question about SS. He gives actual ideas and models on how to fix it.

    He's not an empty shell of right wing rhetoric, he gives ideas when others just say **** obama in everything they say.

    5 - He is probably correct. The percentage might be only 89%, but 90% is close enough.
    6 - I would have preferred Romney over McCain.
    7 - He want to speak to the generals first. That's fine with me.
    8 - Okay.
    9 - Cool.
    10 - It will go up, but income taxes come down.

    Wow! I think we need to take Cain to the gallows and hang him for such things as shown by someone biased against Cain. Hang 'Em High!
    Better watch it, someone's gonna call you racist for wanting to hang a black man....oh wait, nobody cares about black conservatives.

    This is just too funny. We are 14 months from the General election, and over 3 months away from the actual primary process taking place. Plus we have some libs in this thread throwing out their opinion on just whom we as conservatives should nominate.

    There is a long way to go, and by the actual convention I suspect that we will see many different people being talked about like they are the answer to Obama's failed Presidency. But, let's keep one thing foremost on our minds. Regardless of whom wins the nomination, Obama and the libs looking to undermine the fabric of this country over their shared vision of failed Euro collectivism, and a seeming guilt of success in this country, we will nominate someone who is more than able to unseat this failure of a President.

    When I was a kid, they were the first deep-dish in town. Best pizza place as far as us kids were concerned. Having ones little league team (football) sponsored by Godfathers was tha bomb (and the team got to eat there together at the end of the year). It was in the same little mall as Kelly's Seafood and any other destination for dinner was second-class.

    Link please? Last I heard he was all "well, I can't tell what's in their head". I'd like an explanation and retraction of both the cabinet comment and the subsequent explanation.
