Election 2012: Let the Games Begin
It’s beginning to be that time again. The time for a the prospective contestants to line up for the scripted reality show that comes around every four years, the Presidential Election 2012 season, season 45.
President Obama has announced he will be running again in Election 2012 (big shock!). As a good faith offering, the Obama administration has decided to move the terrorist trials back to Gitmo from New York. In normal Obama style the announcement was not made without a head-fake from the center to the left with Eric Holder admitting the trials were being relocated to Gitmo, but he was still right to want to try Khalid in New York.
This article will not be about Obama’s candidacy though. I want to focus on potential Republican candidates who may not have name recognition as most of us are keenly aware of the old guard from the Republican party.
Today’s Election 2012 potential candidate is Herman Cain.
I will admit I picked Mr. Cain as the first candidate to write about because he was the CEO of Godfathers Pizza and I love Godfathers Pizza so there is a small amount of bias here.
As you may remember Obama’s resume’ was pretty sparse before becoming the most powerful man in the world and we have felt the ramifications of that. Herman Cain is quite the opposite, here is Mr. Cain’s resume’:
Mr. Cain is an American newspaper columnist, businessman, political activist, and radio talk-show host from Georgia. He is best known as the former chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. He is a former deputy chairman (1992–94) and chairman (1995–96) of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Cain’s newspaper column is distributed by North Star Writers Group.
Mr. Cain is not an Ivy Leaguer like the current arrogant occupant of the White House. Mr. Cain got a bachelors in Mathematics from Morehouse College (means he will know what a deficit is) using his degree in the military as mathematician for the Department of the Navy. Mr. Cain then acquired his Masters in computer science from Purdue University (Go Boilermakers, that is for my brother).
Mr. Cain hit the political scene in the 1990′s when he debated then President Clinton on the Health Care bill Hillary was developing. Mr. Cain won the debate to the point he is credited for its demise.
His current Resume for Election 2012:
Herman Cain continues to peeve off the left, now in the many speeches he gives at Tea Party rallies. In a radio interview, when asked about the potential of a Muslim in his cabinet Mr. Cain stated, he will not have a Muslim in his cabinet because a great number of Muslims have a preference to Sharia Law and he correctly points out that Sharia is in direct conflict to the Constitution. Mr. Cain expounded further on Fox News defending his position
Previous to the above statement Mr. Cain ruffled the feathers of the libs by stating at CPAC, “stupid people are running this country”. In the same speech he said:
“The objective of the liberals is to destroy this country. The objective of the liberals is to make America mediocre.”
Mr. Cain has become a favorite of the Tea Party (yes, the racist Tea Party. Another force in Election 2012) because he espouses the need for smaller government and is for steep reductions in corporate taxes and the so-called FairTax plan, which would replace the federal tax code with a national consumption tax on retail sales. For the fiscal beliefs and the fact that Herman Cain pulls no punches and is a wonderful orator added up to enough for Mr. Cain to win the Tea Party Patriots straw poll in Phoenix this February.
Herman Cain is a force, he has worked himself up the latter from a modest upbringing, is becoming a darling within conservative ranks. This stage IV cancer survivor has fought a good fight and he has a lot of fight in him. Mr. Cain deserves a shot at the brass ring and we here at Red State Report will be watching him along with a few other deserving conservatives as they try to make their way to the Title Game….Election 2012.
