Herman Cain websites

These are the places to go if you want to find out more about Herman Cain or want to join up to be on his team with me and thousands of others. Remember there are places out there set up specifically to denounce Cain or deceive you – BE WARY. As for me, I have volunteered to be the Delaware State Coordinator assisting the Cain campaign organize support locally. See, anyone can be a “community organizer”! We will not be outworked on the social networks by ANYONE, especially President Obama’s goons.

Handicapping the Field

Flag of Iowa

Hearkening back to: https://mantei.wordpress.com/2011/02/04/election-2012-starts-now/

It concerns me that the Republican establishment wants to crown someone already – likely Romney. They are also trying to get Mitch Daniels into the race. Newt is a lost cause now, he should drop out immediately. Santorum garners respect, but he lacks the “new car smell” that we Patriots are demanding in 2012. He would also be on the defensive constantly, not a good recipe for success. Crazy Uncle Ron will continue to be himself, and Gary Johnson (a more sane libertarian) has no constituency to support him. Both should drop out, but only Johnson will. Nobody cares if Buddy Roemer or Jon Huntsman run or not. At least Barbour had the sense to pull the plug early. Pawlenty is kind of in the background, conservatives would support him, they just don’t love him. Though he and Romney have raised a LOT of money lately. I truly don’t see how Romney has credibility with primary voters on the Obamacare vs Romneycare issue. It’s just another flip flop right? I hope NOBODY is preparing to “hold their nose” at this early stage! Why is Bachmann delaying I wonder? Does she realize she and Cain will attract many of the same voters? Same for Palin, by the way. Props to Huckabee and Trump for finally teasing everyone. Now take a look at this: http://2012iowareport.com/ – post Huckabee and Trump, Herman Cain is already DOMINATING the Iowa polls. Look especially at “likely Caucus goers” where he has a nearly 22 point lead. Bachmann isn’t even a candidate yet and she is squarely in 2nd. Translation: the TEA party and social conservatives will decide Iowa, period. The question becomes, will the effect be similar in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada? I don’t see why it can’t. We must RISE and make it happen.

Assuming Palin and Daniels stay out and Bachmann jumps in, I truly think this is an unbiased handicapping of the field going forward:

Romney – lots of cash and free media coverage – FOX and Dick Morris won’t shut up about him. Will primary voters fall back once again on “paid his dues”? Fear of going with your heart and losing?

Pawlenty – as long as he doesn’t do anything dumb, will remain near the top as a low risk choice. (He and Romney would be hurt the most if Daniels gets in.)

Cain – his incredible surge will continue and eventually will be mentioned with the other two. His lack of political experience is the one and only negative about him – though not in my eyes (nor in countless thousands of others).

All 2 to 1 odds.

Bachmann – strong feelings for and against her among the electorate, looks like she is stuck in the middle. Palin would be here too. 10 to 1

Santorum – virtually no chance. 100 to 1

Paul – no chance.

Gingrich – no chance.

Johnson – no chance.

(same goes for Huntsman, Roemer, any other late comer with no name recognition)

As a Cain supporter, I feel the TEA party support would only be split by Bachmann or Palin, so I don’t want them to run. The “business experience” vote would be split only to Romney, he would be the only obstacle if the ladies are not there. Iowa is only 8 months away my friends, and the next debate is less than 4 weeks away…

PS – tune in Saturday at high noon in Atlanta for a major announcement! 🙂

The Lies of Barack Obama

Uncle Sam says Don't Trust Barack Obama!

I have had enough. Lie is a specific word with a specific meaning. Some of the things below are “broken campaign promises” and things that he has “reconsidered”. But unlike the “Bush lied about WMDs” crowd, President Obama engages in actual lies that are easily documented. If you are a progressive, you will see most if not all of these things as “things all politicians do” or somehow are fabricated by “Faux News” and the Koch brothers. But for any rational person reading this, here are, in general chronological order, the lies.

Will not run for President in 2008: Tim Russert: When we talked back in November of ‘04, after your election, I said, “There’s been enormous speculation about your political future. Will you serve your full six-year term as a United States senator from Illinois?” Obama: “Absolutely.” I will serve out my full six-year term. You know, Tim, if you get asked enough, sooner or later you get weary and you start looking for new ways of saying things, but my thinking has not changed. “so you will not run for president or vice president in 2008?”, “I will not.”

After he lied and ran:

Special interests: In January 2007, the Obama campaign described union contributions to the campaigns of Clinton and John Edwards as “special interest” money. Obama changed his tune as he began gathering his own union endorsements. He now refers respectfully to unions as the representatives of “working people” and says he is “thrilled” by their support.

Saying he would only take matching campaign funds ($85 million) during the primaries – McCain agreed – then said he wouldn’t during the general election because “the system is broken” (IE he realized he could raise more than 3 times as much – ended up being $264 million): “If you are nominated for President in 2008 and your major opponents agree to forgo private funding in the general election campaign, will you participate in the presidential public financing system? Yes.”; “If I am the Democratic nominee, I will aggressively pursue an agreement with the Republican nominee to preserve a publicly financed general election.”

Lies proven since being elected:

“When a bill lands on my Desk, The American people will have 5 days to review it before I sign it.”

“I’ll get rid of earmarks.”

“Would have the most transparent administration in history”

Guantanamo bay to be closed within a year.

Lies about the failed “Stimulus”:

Both Obama and Biden talked incessantly about the Unemployment rate going alllll the way up to 8.5% without $700 Billion stimulus. All their “experts” agreed. After passage of the bill in Feb. 09, it promptly rose to 8.6%. Then 9%…then over 10% by October.  Stayed between 9.5% and 10% for 15 more months in a row. Now “down” to 8.8%. Note: During the entire 8 years of the Bush administration, only 3 months had over 6.3% (6.6%, 6.8% and 7.3% in Oct-Dec 2008 – the months before, during and after Obama’s election).

We need a shovel, all right… Jan, 2009: “We’ve got shovel-ready projects all across the country that governors and mayors are pleading to fund. And the minute we can get those investments to the state level, jobs are going to be created.”  Oct. 2010: “There is no such thing as a shovel-ready project”.

Obamacare lies:

All Health Care reform debates/deals will be covered on C-span.

“I am immediately instituting PayGo (Pay as you go)”.

“The health care bill will not increase the deficit by one dime.”

“We shouldn’t Mandate the purchase of health care”

Newer lies:

“We have run out of places in the US to drill for oil.”

Post-partisan? “We can prove that we are more than a collection of Red States and Blue States” vs. “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends”.

“I am not somebody who promotes same-sex marriage.” Then announces for no reason whatsoever that his administration will “not enforce” the Defense of Marriage Law.

Blaming the 2011 budget impasse on the Republican House elected in Nov. 2010. Huge Democrat majorities in both houses could have passed a 2011 budget at any time during 2010 but they refused to they refused to cut spending and did not want to be blamed for raising taxes (which they wanted to do and still want to do).

Speaking about winning elections:  Jan. 2009 after winning, “I won. So I think on that one, I trump you.”  April 2011 after losing, “Getting your way is not how it works”.

Sadly, I think I missed a lot and there will be MANY more to come. Especially now that he is back in Campaign mode…

We all must wise up and rise up and kick this empty suit to the curb in 2012.

Election 2012 starts now

Let’s be honest, I will be voting for/supporting/helping the campaign of whomever the Republican nominee is next year. I know this because the Progressive/socialist slide has got to be stopped at all levels beginning with the Presidency and because nearly all the prospective candidates are unabashed pro-Constitution, limited government Conservatives. Too early you say? Well the first debate is scheduled for May 2, so hats will be in the ring very soon. I wanted to put my thoughts out there now and go through the names and give you my thoughts on each.

Fmr. Gov. Sarah Palin:  My heart says yes but my head says no. As much as the MSM would love for her to be the nominee (so she could be defeated by their Dear Leader), even if she did try, I don’t think she would win. For me, it was when she resigned the governorship. She should remain the force that she is, outside the process. I think she senses this too. Gut feeling, not running.

Fmr. Gov. Mitt Romney:  We saw him in 2008. Lots going for him, but “romneycare” may doom him.  I like him but seems a little too “slick” at times. Would be a formidable opponent for Obama with his business background. Definitely running.

Fmr. Gov. Mike Huckabee: Saw him in 2008 also. Hasn’t changed since then. Good VP choice but not President. Something is just missing. Very likeable and genuine though. Would give Obama a run for it, but has a great life right now. Gut feeling, not running.

Fmr. Gov. Tim Pawlenty:  Wouldn’t have minded him being the VP choice for McCain. Lots to like. The only thing holding him back in my mind is a tinge of “typical politican”; that will rub people the wrong way but he may overcome it and would be bad news for Obama. Definitely running.

Rep. Michele Bachmann: TEA party backer from the beginning; would make some waves in the primaries for sure, but the work she is doing in Congress is too important. Gut feeling, not running.

Sen. Jim DeMint: see Bachmann.

Sen. Marco Rubio/Sen. Rand Paul/Gov. Nikki Haley/Rep. Allen West: Elected directly by the TEA parties, just getting started. Not this time, but the future is bright for all 4.

Gov. Chris Christie/Gov. Bobby Jindal/Gov. Rick Perry:  All of these governors are doing great at home, none will run.

Hon. Rudy Guiliani:  My Man in 2008. If he couldn’t win then, he certainly won’t now. He may try if he sees an opening for a “moderate”. Still, I believe he would defeat Obama in a general election. If Palin/Huckabee don’t run, he won’t either.

Gov. Mitch Daniels:  Meh. Nothing that stands out to me. Probably running.

Fmr. Sen. Rick Santorum:  Too divisive for a general election, would get crushed by Obama. But social conservatives will give him a look. Probably running.

Fmr. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich: He’s a good historian, author and lecturer, but his time has passed long ago. Is a symbol of the “old guard” – career politician gone bad. He needs to go away. Probably running unfortunately.

Gov. Haley Barbour:  “Down home” southern boy, smart guy, good leader, will have a tough time in the general. 50/50 chance.

Sen. John Thune: A serious candidate from a small state (SD). Depends on how he handles the nationwide process. Has potential to be the nominee, and even President, but can he raise enough money? Probably running.

Rep. Ron Paul:  Frankly, Ron Paul has a screw loose. He’s a great Libertarian voice in the House, and should stay there. Has a RABID band of supporters who will accept nothing but him (nobody else lives up to his perfect libertarianism). Both he and they are an impediment. They talk a big game, routinely badmouthing opponents, but get almost no votes in primaries as 2008 showed. Stands no chance against Obama. 50/50 chance, unfortunately.

Fmr. Gov. George Pataki: Meh. Another has-been looking for a “moderate” opening. He may jump in but then bow out very quickly.

And then there is my choice…the best of all worlds, the man who can defeat Obama, redefine the conservative movement and the TEA party to the world at large, and has the experience and common sense we need so badly…

CEO/Fed. Chief/Author/radio host/cancer survivor/TEA party backed Herman Cain. True outsider, check. Knows sound economic policies (IE fiscal conservative), check. Would fight hard and smart against Islamo-Nazi terror (IE foreign policy conservative), check. Social conservative down the line, check. The more you find out about this man, the more amazed you are. Has the money and will to win the nomination. And in a general election will basically “out-Obama” Obama. He’s a better speaker (hard to believe but true), he’s smarter, he’s not duplicitous, and frankly he’s “blacker”. As a TEA party patriot, he has my unequivocal support. So hopefully you will be hearing about him more and more as the months progress. Please go to www.hermancain.com , www.draftcain.org  and watch him obliterate then-President Clinton on government run health care here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WP5dYfBBzU

A poll just out today in Georgia has Cain tied with Romney and beating Palin and he won outright in another poll at Redstate…so the support is building. Can’t wait to see how his plan unfolds. Rest assured he has one. 🙂

So I guess I am projecting the field to feature at least 8 candidates to unseat President Obama. Should be very fun to see play out over the next year. Of course, there is a Senate to be wrested from the Left’s control as well…more about that in the future. CAIN 2012!
