    Correct, however it is experience that was similar to at least some past Presidents that the public has elected and is significantly more than what Herman Cain has.

    Also Herman Cain has much more experience than a CEO of a pizza company. He responds to the critique quite well, and mention the dozens of achievements in his life.
    Yes, he does...however I disagree 100% of him responding well to the critique and its the critique that will be used against him a fair bit. He's got a lot of achievements on a personal and professional level...however he's a rookie when it comes to the political arena. He's an undrafted Free Agent coming in saying he should be paid like Peyton Manning because he was really good at Rugby and its a similar type of sport.

    Both of them are hypocrites, but what I'm saying is that the management experience of Obama is less than Cain. Hence, they won't be able to criticize Cain for not being experienced enough.
    Obama's relevant "management" experience...which really the Obama administration should LAUGH at such a use right off the bat anyways, being an executive of a government is not equivilent ot "management" experience which sounds as much like something Joe the manager at Home Depot has as it does what the POTUS should have...may've been less than Cain's. Its absolutely not now with Obama actually having experience on the job itself. And again, Obama and Herman Cain are equal when it comes to Executive experience with regards to running government...Zero. However Obama had significantly more, and that's something, political experience than Cain did taking 2008 Obama and he's got leaps and bounds more now.

    Most people don't even want a politician.
    And you make that bet. I'm going to take the safe money on a 200+ year trend. Unlike 2008, there's not nearly enough other factors to outweigh the trend that's being broken nor do I think the public's issue with that trend is as reduced as it was in regards to the trend in 2008 (race).

    Again, you show your true intent here.

    Yes, Obama voted Present a lot. He did not vote present in 100% of votes, its still absolutely possible to be knowledgable and involved in the process by voting Present, and it doesn't remove him from the experience dealing with the various portions of government. No, simply put, you're wrong. Factually, 100%, wrong going off partisan spin of reality rather than actual facts.

    Re: Herman Cain: For real or not

    I don't know. I've seen his website, and there's a lot of great TALK there, but I'm not sure how much of it he would really be willing/able to DO once he got into office. I also don't see anything there on one of the most important issues in my mind.... The Right to Keep and Bear Arms. He's definitely a better option than Romney but he doesn't seem to have the ideological fire of a Rick Perry, so we'll have to see.

    Just Jon Stewart as far as I can tell but the segment was true about media bias. Although Jon has always been a Paul fan even when there was no election, nothing out of the blue. Most democrats would think Romney as the best choice.

    As for Cain, I can deep dish of his past. He is no better than Obama in some cases.

    Yes but voting "present" is a political position, not one of principle. People are tired of this.

    Zyphlin: You seem to value political experience in front of business experience. I think a lot of people disagree with you. I believe it is much more impressive to be a chairman at the federal reserve, director at Pillsbury, and CEO of Godfather's Pizza than to be a lousy senator. If I'm going to care about political experience, they better be Governors.

    Some of the best Presidents in the US, had very little political experience. I think the most important quality for a President is to be able to connect to people. Obama doesn't explain his reforms very well, or the need for them.

    Most conservatives don't want another politician or everyone would be jumping on the Gingrich train!

    Does it really matter? A job is a job.

Does he have a real chance of winning the nomination or is he just the current holder of the "Anyone but Romney" weak support right now? I personally think he will fade in the coming three months as this "Anyone but Romney" feeling continues to cycle between Gingrich, Perry, Bachmann, Santorum, Cain, and maybe Palin if she decides to run.
    Romney would be dead last on my list too. Anyone who condones socialist health care is totally unqualified to be President. Romney should RESIGN immediately.

    Herman Cain is one of the best candidates in the race. One thing I like is that he is not a politician. Another is that he has business experience and has proven again and again that he knows and strongly supports common sense economics that many other Republicans and nearly all Democrats just can't grasp.

    Herman Cain is really on a roll now. He has just won two more polls.

    If Ron Paul somehow can't make it, Herman Cain will likely be my second choice. GO HERMAN!

    Re: Herman Cain: For real or not

    Him being the fed charmain isn't a redeeming quality at all.

    As far as political vs business experience goes... Most people think he'll fix the economic issues facing this nation. Problem is that he was flat out wrong on the housing bubble which led to the recession.

    Commentary: The Media Say the Economy Is Horrible, So It Must Be True /sarcasm

    Aug 17, 2005: You could write a book just on how poor the coverage has been of the alleged housing bubble. The media have been foretelling a massive bust in housing prices for months now. On May 19, ABCs Elizabeth Vargas said: The run up in housing prices is now beginning to look something like the boom in Internet stocks, and we know what happened there. That kind of ignorance makes homeowners fear that their most expensive possession could turn worthless overnight. That wont happen. No matter how much the media compared Bush to Herbert Hoover last year, this is not the Great Depression.
    Fall 2005: Booming housing market halts abruptly; from the fourth quarter of 2005 to the first quarter of 2006, median prices nationwide dropped of 3.3 percent.[41]
    Year-end: A total of 846,982 properties were in some stage of foreclosure in 2005.[42]

    2006: Continued market slowdown. Prices are flat, home sales fall, resulting in inventory buildup. U.S. Home Construction Index is down over 40% as of mid-August 2006 compared to a year earlier. A total of 1,259,118 foreclosures were filed during the year, up 42 percent from 2005.[43]

    I got some more of Cain's great decisions if you need them.
