    May be a tad bit early for all you Cain supporters to start printing bumper stickers, but several things are clear:

    He has a message and a plan.

    He is good at getting that message and plan out to the people.

    He is well received when people get to hear him.

    I did not know anything about him until the last couple weeks, so I am pleasantly surprised he did so well in Florida.

    Disappointed that Michelle Bachmann finished dead last and she may well drop out of the race. Remember a month or so ago, it was her, Romney, and Ron Paul, so you might understand why I was for her.

    But, as they say, it's still early, in fact it is very early and a lot can happen still. But this is what people react to, a message, a plan and no some "I'll do anything you want" type candidate, unless you're a welfare recipient.

    Great news! I've listened to him on the radio for the last few years when he has been guest fill in host on the Neal Boortz show. I believe him to be a true conservative. I also believe we need somebody from the private sector, and not a career politician.

    Really, I like all the Repub cand. and don't have any major disagreements except with Romney and Romney care, and I believe Perry to be weak on the border and immigration. I've just been hoping somebody else could cut into the 2 big front runners: Romney & Perry.

    Newt rocks in these debates but just doesn't seem to get any traction. I love Bachmann and hopes she sticks around too.

    Election is still 14 months away, and a lot can change. I hope they all stay in the race and hone their skills so when it comes time to debate Ojackass.

    buzzy, I guess that is why who should never look behind the curtain. I like Cain, but WTH is going on? A southern black guy president of a deep dish Chicago Italian pizza chain???? What next a white guy in the NBA, or a white running back in the NFL?

    I like Herman Cain a lot. When he speaks he commands respect and he gets it besides having the ability to get his points across in a clear and concise way.
    Herman is seeking answers if not solutions and I like that especially now when our Country is facing some difficult times.

    He is the best candidate to beat Obama.

    Racism cannot be claimed, because both his parents were black, that makes him more black than Obama and will make Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton happy.

    He is a practiced businessman, compared to Obama's belief in failed theories of Keynesian economics and the socialist of Lenin and Marx.

    He is an eloquent speaker and does not need a telepromter.

    He has spent a lot more years of living as an adult, instead of a spoiled pampered child that has ben over indulged.

    Obama is a know-nothing president. By that I mean " we the People " know nothing about him before his presidency. I believe his true dealings and beliefs and actions would cause a lie'n African to go home. If you hung out and was mentored by the Tim Ayers crowd would you want the public to get wind of just how much??

    There is a "STUD" running back in the NFL, and, he's as white as snow. The name is "Peyton Hillis", and he's also the cover of Madden 12.

    Oh, he's also from Arkansas and he plays for "My Cleveland Browns" !!!

    Bark Loud, the season is short...

    Herman Cain is a great contender, but don't count on him taking black votes from Obama. Too many black "leaders" would lose too much once their constituents got off the dole and became independent. There won't be one jumping on the Cain band wagon because of this.

    I see no Republican contender at this point that can fire up the voters ...

    Maybe Rubio from Florida should reconsider.

    Just my opinion.

    Bisi--

    What's that about white NBA players?

    Larry Byrd...the greatest NBA player ever if you consider effort, heart and scorability from difficult angles and circumstances on the court. No comparison!

    I agree w/Barry, Herman would work fine...wonder if he's a member of Project 21?

    Black vote is not needed. Just need the 33% voters who are Republicans and the 33% who call themselves Independents.


    The "Reagan Democrats" will help make it a landslide, but without them, the right Republican would kick Obama out.

    Herman Cain is a great candidate with a compelling history of MAKING GOOD THINGS HAPPEN. Early this morning, after his overwhelming victory in the Florida Straw Poll I was doing some reading around various forums to see what the template will be that the left wing Democrats will create to discredit Herman Cain. With the election of Obama, the Democrat Party cannot use lack of experience or lack of accomplishments against the opposition. What I saw developing this morning as a way to discredit Herman Cain was a line that will go something like: "Well, granted he's a successful businessman, but at what cost to his workers...?? Besides...you cant' run the U.S. government like a FOR PROFIT corporation".
    Watch for it...and remember you saw it here first. I'll be very pleased if the Democrats take that line against Herman Cain. MOST Americans understand that the CASH for all those wonderful government programs has to originate with somebody actually doing something to create value...so they can be TAXED.
    MOST Americans understand there is no "Obama Stash" of money that just flows like water with no discernable source.
    People who fail to understand these simple truths are typically either 3rd generation welfare rats, or union members.

    Whoever turns out to be the candidate, the left will turn loose the dogs, to find out whatever dirt they can and go after his family, just like they did Palin.

    I am sure we will also see him labeled as a Tea Bagger and Tea Party Fruitcake, by the Fruitcake Left.

    I'm Not defending Obama, But didn't they do the same thing to him.? Demanding the birth certificate, claiming he wasn't black enoigh or white enough, etc.

    Seems to me, no matter who is chosen by whatever party, they will be run through the gauntlet.

    One other observation, It seems that a lot of the critique Obama has endured is because he is not white and a Democrat. I guess it is ok to be Black and a Repiblican?

    Ubama is a communist, a socialist, a liberal and a pandering liar.

    Mr. Cain is a successful capitalist, a conservative, a patriot, and a humorous, thoughtful man of God.

    We all get one vote.

    I like Cain also but not the third 9 in his tax plan. Make government live on the 9% corporate tax and 9% income tax. The 9% sales tax will kill sales especially once the politicians get it up to 15% or so and you know they will find a way to do that. In Wisconsin think of purchasing a new or used car with a 9% national tax plus 5.5 state county tax, not good for sales. Go to the grocery store and pay a 9% national sales. Think about that last 9 in his tax plan and that is deal breaker.
