"Everyone in Washington has held public office before. How's that working out for you?"
--Herman Cain on the relevancy of political experience.
I've liked Herman Cain for a long time, going all the way back to his days when he turned around one of the worst Burger King group of restaurants into the most profitable--and in less than three years.
Then he did the same thing for Godfather's Pizza, only this time it took less than fourteen months.
Is there any doubt what he can do for America if we put him in as political CEO, also known as President of the United States?
On the big issues for me, which are Gun Control and Taxes, he's solid conservative. Gun laws are up to the individual states, he says. I agree. Federal regulation of guns is not constitutional and as a result, disastrous to law-abiding gun-owners.
A Cain presidency just might finally eliminate the hated and despised Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Explosives.
It might also eliminated the universally reviled Internal Revenue Service, because Cain also is adamant about a Fair Tax.
On his campaign website, he has a booklet that downloads easily and quickly. It's called Cain Common Sense Solutions and I've linked you to it. Click on it and give it a quick read. You'll be impressed.
Such honesty is refreshing.
The American Thinker has an excellent piece on The Top Ten Reasons To Support Cain For President. I can't argue with any of them, and what's more, every point he makes is one of the foundation planks in the Tea Party movement. I especially like the counter argument to having never been elected. I like it so much I put it at the masthead of this column.
The liberal media is trying their damndest to ignore Cain, hoping he'll just go away. News flash--yes, intentional pun--Cain is here to stay. The mainstream, aka liberal media is scared to death of this guy when the natural comparisons to the Kenyan imposter are raised: He's clean. No affairs. No tax cheating. No scandals. No terrorist affiliations. No radical America, white-hating pastors as his mentor.
And he has a birth certificate and so far has not claimed to be Irish or have Irish blood in him.
Let's look at a few comparisons between the Kenyan imposter and Herman Cain:
• Obama was a community "organizer." Herman Cain built communities.
• Obama's only real vote of record during his Senate tenure was to vote repeatedly for approving late-term abortions. Herman Cain believes Life begins at conception.
• Obama insists we need "common sense federal gun legislation." Herman Cain trusts the States and the law-abiding citizens with the Second Amendment.
• Obama oversees agencies such as the IRS. Herman Cain has had to overcome the IRS in order to keep his workforce employed and his companies profitable.
• Obama's health, birth and college records are sealed, paid for by us taxpayers. Herman Cain's entire life is not just an open book--it's detailed in four open books. How's that for disclosure?
I propose Michelle Bachman, for obvious reasons as well as the intangibles. A Cain/Bachman ticket will have the liberals going insane. Bachman is scaring the Loonies almost every bit as much as Sarah Palin. That tells you right there the woman is right for America.
But why not Bachman/Cain?
I'd be all right with that, too, however what we need in 2012 is someone who has a proven track record of success of turning train wrecks around, cleaning up the debris, and making the lines run profitable again.
We're out of money, folks. We need a financially savvy, experienced business LEADER at the podium.
CEOs are generally somewhat smart. There are exceptions, but you don't stay top dog by being stupid--unlike in politics. CEOs stay in place by seeking and hiring the smartest specialists in their respective fields they can find.
Cain can do that, and Bachman can steer him through the political process.
For the record, I think Michelle Bachman would make one helluva good president and I think/suspect Cain would be interested in only one term. What great fertile training ground for Ms. Bachman to learn the exact intricacies of the fiscal and organizational aspects of being POTUS.
Four successful years of a Cain/Bachman administration would give everyone who (actually) works in America confidence in their ability to restore America to our path of greatness.
No wonder the pundits are shopping for sleep number beds. They're not getting much sleep since this weekend, and they're awaking with some real pain.
Serves them right.
I like Cain.
