Herman Cain is rigiht. Stupid people are running America.
Those were the words from Herman Cain speaking today at CPAC. I was going to wait until the end of CPAC Sunday to give a recap on the best speakers and my thoughts, but I changed my mind. Liberals do it all the time and never get any flap over it, so I should be able to do it as well, cough cough. I've been meaning to share my thoughts on a possible Herman Cain run for the Republican nomination, but as usual something came up and I forgot. I like Herman Cain a lot, he's a straight shooter. Herman has a firm grasp on common sense thinking.
I think he has a long shot at winning the nomination though due to his lack of name recognition. I also feel however that Obama has made it much more difficult for any other black person to ever be elected president. That's just my opinion, and I hope I am wrong. Even though Obama is no different in governing then how Howard Dean or John Kerry would have governed if they were elected president, they're are going to be people who are going say that "we gave the black guy a chance and look what happened". They won't be able to separate the ideology from the person. Here's another obstacle facing Herman if he decides to run. I remember when Michael Steele won the position as Republican National Committee Chairman, I knew what the liberal response was going to be when he won. It wasn't going to be congratulations. It was that Steele was only picked in an attempt by the GOP to "copy Obama". Of course that claim was beyond stupid, It still didn't stop the left from going forth with the notion. If Herman is serious about running, he should wait until 2016 or 2020 at the earliest. That's just my opinion. I know several conservatives who think very highly of Cain and would like him to run. He has a very impressive business background as the CEO who turned around the Godfather Pizza company, and a person with a business background is really what America desperately needs right now. A community organizer doesn't know anything about stimulating private sector job creation. They are normally the ones demonizing it to being with. Cain wouldn't be the first black person to run for the Republican nomination. Alan Keyes from my state of Maryland ran in 2008. Alan has a very bright conservative mind, but his delivery in communicating his beliefs is a different story. It would be fascinating to watch Herman school Obama on how the economy and capitalism really works. Maybe that opportunity might happen. Time will tell.
