    A Cain ticket would be interesting, but it could very well be tanked depending on who is running with him.

    The one thing I do like about Cain is his views that welfare creates a dependency in its current form. Welfare has long needed reform and I would be ok with that part. Welfare should be a tool to help people when they come on hard times to get back on their feet and find jobs and not be used the way it is now.

    As for the racist thing, while I don't believe most conservatives are racists, yes they are out there. I don't think racism follows any particular party lines, but it definitely exists and would come into play a little bit.

    I've listen to Cain, he's no pussy. He speaks up and says what he thinks.

    But he didn't wait. He announced today, May 9th, 2011.

    Former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich has announced that he will be seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. president in 2012. Gingrich’s plans were made public via Facebook and Twitter Monday, where he also asked supporters to tune into his Fox News interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday night.

    He cheated on his wife because he loves his country...

Doesn't make it any less wrong, but does mean its not likely to have be as damaging to a potential campaign now as Edwards would be.
    Somebody else has probably already said this, but, yes, Newt's infidelity was over a decade ago. And his other infidelity was over a decade ago, too. Not earth shattering, but they both happened. And you know the other party will bring these adulteries up ad nauseum if this guy becomes any kind of threat. Course his opposition from his own party will do the same in the primaries.

    This from the party who called it racist to even use their candidates middle name??

    I suppose we know what the political strategy of the Democrats is now. Overlook the issues and concentrate on the trivial. This adolescent approach to serious issues is why America is largely on the ropes.

    Uh, oh. He'll never get elected that way. He'd better learn to give mealy mouthed talking points that can be interpreted however the listener wants.

    So your claim is 96% of the blacks were duped by the Democrats? Couldn't be perhaps that you and the remaining 4% that didn't vote with the majority, were duped by the GOP could it?

    Really? Let's review:

    Note: working class is also known as the middle class.

    Then you said:

    At least the rich EARN their money and this country would crumble if it wasn't for the rich who get screwed by paying for all their spending sprees.
    Why do you feel the working class (middle class) do not earn their money?


    Obama should get off his ass and start cutting off all the free programs that cost ALL of US a lot of money and he should quit helping the rich that got in financial trouble.
    What "free plans that cost us all a lot of money" are you referring too? I also did not agree with the GOP/DEM tarp bailout, but which party wanted regulations to prevent it from happening in the future, and which party fought against preventing it in the future?

    Obama should abandon his policies that have cost jobs to the MIDDLE CLASS who are the working people.
    What policies have cost the middle class jobs? Lets review unemployment before and after Obama:


    Bush vs. Obama: Unemployment | Reflections of a Rational Republican




    Obama is bankrupting this country, not the rich. Helloooooo!.
    The debt as a percentage of GDP has hardly increased compared to what it was under Bush, and that was with stimulus spending necessary to prevent another Great Depression. Once we have recovered from the Bush recession will be the time to cut spending and the temporary tax cuts for the wealthy, as is spelled out in Obama's proposed budget.
