    I'm hoping some minds will be changed once Cain gets more air time. People who never heard of him or hadn't heard him speak, usually fall in love. (the Luntz focus group is a good example and not all that surprising for him) I know I did, back in 2009 sometime. I started praying then that he would someday run. I'd be proud to call him Mr. President.

    I sure don't want 4 more years of Bush bashing However, the liberals would go nuts and it might be worth it.. Nah... A Black Conservative will make them even crazier. Newt is just boring, and not all that conservative in my opinion.

    Just thought of something. Jeb Bush must be a no go. Laura Bush called Mitch Daniels wife, supposedly to give here first lady advice.

    The field still seems very amorphous but one thing that rings solid is the fact that Laura Bush called Mitch Daniels' wife to encourage and advise her. That means the big dogs like Daniels. He is well connected and seems like someone that group would support.

    The problem is conservatives don't like his resume. If the Republican bigs push Daniels we could see a third candidate. Frankly I don't think they care whether its Daniels or Obama in the White House, just so it isn't an outsider.

    The bankers want their own dogs running the government they bought and paid for.

    I'd feel a lot better about Cain if he has ANY government experience. Yes, he's been the CEO of a pizza chain I've never heard of, but he doesn't have the first idea of how government works. Obama was at least a legislator and a senator, Palin was a mayor and a governor. Cain literally has no experience.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    The thing is from the polls I have seen Mike Huckabee, and Mitch Romany are the top two people that would stand a chance at the white house. If the Republicans want the White house this means don't put people that have baggage like Donald trump, or Sarah Plain in the running. Thought, I agree with Cpwill in that I like the man's reason for not ruining. You'd have too be nuts to run under the Political stupidity we have today.


    Off topic: for Cpwill
    I'm also glad to see you are doing well.

    He has more experience than you realize. There's lots of stuff here people aren't talking about. He's alot more than a former ceo of a pizza chain. Even Newt enlisted him. LOL poor Newt. I think he just lost Ga. to Cain.

    Introducing Herman Cain - Robert Costa - National Review Online

    The Clinton–Cain scuffle also drew the attention of Republican leaders, from Jack Kemp to Newt Gingrich, the two of whom enlisted Cain for the Economic Growth and Tax Reform Commission, a congressional study group, following that year’s midterms. For Cain, who had little prior interest in politics, it was a sudden, though welcome, development.
    “When I confronted Clinton, I was just trying to help save Godfather’s Pizza,” Cain says. “I never had a desire or inclination to get into politics. People then started to encourage me to run for office, but that was not part of my game plan.”
    But the bug had bit. Cain, who was already a leader at the National Restaurant Association at the time of the Clinton town hall, was retained in 1996 as the group’s full-time chief executive. He left Godfather’s to become a national corporate advocate and motivational speaker. He began to crisscross the country, giving hundreds of speeches to business and educational groups.
    After the Hillarycare battles, Cain continued to find himself dabbling in national politics. During the 1996 presidential campaign, he was an adviser to Kemp, a former congressman and housing secretary and Bob Dole’s vice-presidential nominee. The pair had clicked the previous the year on Capitol Hill while serving together on the congressional study group.

    that's one of the better thing about the dems. when their candidate of choice LOSES in the Primary (witness Hillary's harpies) they tend to support the nominee rather than some whiner who wants to be a spoiler. The Connecticut situation with Lieberman was a bit different given it was internet insurgents who promoted that idiot who won the primary over lieberman. But the GOP has too many "purists"-especially the idiotic Bible Thumpers who gave us Obama by torpedoing the guy who could have beat him in 08-Romney-because his brand of Christianity didn't sell well with the evangelical nutcases

    His lack of, "government experience", is what I like most about him. Yeah, Obama had been a senator for a year--big whoop--and look how he's cocked things up.

    Regarding huck, though, I like his decision. He can do far more good lighting up the base now, than he could have as a candidate.
