Quotes of the day

posted at 10:20 pm on September 30, 2011 by Allahpundit

“A recent Gallup survey shows that, among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, Herman Cain has the highest net favorability rating of anyone in the current GOP presidential field. Cain’s net favorability rating among those who are familiar with him is +62 points (77 percent hold a favorable opinion of him, while 15 percent hold an unfavorable opinion). Rick Perry is 2nd, with a +54 net favorability rating among those who are familiar with him (71 percent favorable, 17 percent unfavorable). Most of the 2-week survey, however, was conducted before the most recent GOP debate (in which Perry struggled) and before the subsequent Florida straw poll (won by Cain) — so the gap between Cain and Perry has likely widened…

“Cain also ranks first among those who feel “strongly” (either way), as 27 percent have a ‘strongly favorable’ opinion of him, while only 1 percent hold a ‘strongly unfavorable’ opinion.”

***

“Does a résumé like Herman Cain’s add up to an American presidency? I used to think not. But after watching the American Idol system we’ve fallen into for discovering a president—with opinion polls, tongue slips and media caprice deciding front-runners and even presidents—I’m rewriting my presidential-selection software…

“The GOP nominee is running against the incumbent president. Unlike the incumbent, Herman Cain has at least twice identified the causes of a large failing enterprise, designed goals, achieved them, and by all accounts inspired the people he was supposed to lead. Not least, Mr. Cain’s life experience suggests that, unlike the incumbent, he will adjust his ideas to reality.

“Herman Cain is a credible candidate. Whether he deserves to be president is something voters will decide. But he deserves a serious look.”

***

“But money, as it were, is a problem: While Romney and Perry have a ton of it, Cain lacks the fundraising network of his better-known rivals. And that’s not the only issue. Cain is competing with Perry, Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum for social conservatives, and that means he needs to do respectably in Iowa, where they make up a major chunk of the GOP electorate. But Cain has little organization in the state – as evidenced by his fifth place finish in the Iowa straw poll – and some his staff in the state quit because they didn’t think the campaign was putting in a serious effort.

“A Cain campaign official acknowledged to CBS News that the candidate is unlikely to win Iowa. But the campaign hopes to survive the state – a third-place finish would be enough, though Cain has claimed he’d be ‘ecstatic’ with fifth-place – and then hold on until South Carolina.

It’s a state Cain’s campaign believes the candidate can win — and thus eventually get to the White House. Cain hails from nearby Georgia, where he hosted a radio show that could be heard across the border; the state is also 28 percent African-American and highly religious, which makes it demographically appealing for Cain, a Baptist minister. And the open primary means Democrats and independents who support Cain can cast ballots.”

***

“The absence of GOP competition for the black vote has allowed the left wing to demagogue the Republican party in the most negative of terms within the black community, without much of a GOP response. Take for instance that comment from Melissa Harris-Perry that I discussed Wednesday, about how the Republican party is not the ‘party of civil rights.’ It is asserted far and wide that the GOP represents little more than the crudest, most reflexive form of Goldwaterism. It’s just not true, so where is the Republican pushback? If Democrats tried to slander the GOP among, say, Catholic voters, you’d see the Republican establishment move heaven and earth to counter such a scurrilous charge. But because the black vote is not up for grabs, this kind of blatant falsehood ends up going unchallenged…

“Cain is right – there is potential for Republicans among African Americans, at least in theory. White conservatives overwhelmingly vote Republican, but black conservatives do not. According to the American National Elections Study, John Kerry won about 90 percent of the black conservative vote. White moderates usually split their votes between the two parties, according to the study, but black moderates do not. Again, Kerry won better than 90 percent. By granting left wing demagogues complete freedom to mischaracterize conservative Republicanism to the black community, the party consistently loses black conservatives and moderates who might otherwise consider the GOP. This, in turn, helps prevent the big policy breakthroughs the GOP hasn’t seen for a generation…

“Herman Cain would not be able to change any of this overnight. And maybe not at all — it would take a great deal of political capital, a deft touch, and a little bit of luck. But the point is this: a Republican candidate for national office, who took competing for the black vote seriously, might help revive Republicanism in the black community. The process could be similar to the kind of top-down advancement the GOP enjoyed in the South after World War II — when Dwight Eisenhower, the Texas-born national hero who beat the Nazis, convinced Dixie to give the Republican party a second look. If Herman Cain could do that for the GOP with African Americans, there would be a real potential not only for the party to do better nationwide, but for African Americans to leverage their voting strength more effectively.”

hmmm…interesting….I think I like him….and you know me, not much opinion in the political subject, but I think everyone should take a look at him…..

Why not indeed.

Grew up poor in America and is living the American dream.

Came from a poor background and became a CEO of a national business.

Loves America despite her imprefections, and understands first hand that those imprefections can be overcome by hard work and diligence.

Understands our economy and how to excell at it.

Didn’t inherit his weath, he earned it.

He’s not perfect… but he only person I agree with 100% of the time is me.

Subject: Did you know this about Herman Cain?

Herman is a committed Christian. Also, his father was chauffeur for
Robert Woodruff of the Coca Cola Company.

Herman Cain is running for president. He’s not a career politician (in fact
he has never held political office). He’s known as a pizza guy, but there’s
a lot more to him. He’s also a computer guy, a banker guy, and a rocket
scientist guy.

Here’s his bio:

* Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics.
* Master’s degree in Computer Science.
* Mathematician for the Navy, where he worked on missile ballistics
(making him a rocket scientist).
* Computer systems analyst for Coca-Cola.
* VP of Corporate Data Systems and Services for Pillsbury (this is the
top of the ladder in the computer world, being in charge of information
systems for a major corporation).

All achieved before reaching the age of 35. Since he reached the top of the
information systems world, he changed careers!

* Business Manager. Took charge of Pillsbury’s 400 Burger King
restaurants in the Philadelphia area, which were the company’s poorest
performers in the country. Spent the first nine months learning the business
from the ground up, cooking hamburger and yes, cleaning toilets. After three
years he had turned them into the company’s best performers.
* Godfather’s Pizza CEO. Was asked by Pillsbury to take charge of
their Godfather’s Pizza chain (which was on the verge of bankruptcy). He
made it profitable in 14 months.
* In 1988 he led a buyout of the Godfather’s Pizza chain from
Pillsbury. He was now the owner of a restaurant chain. Again he reached the
top of the ladder of another industry.
* He was also chairman of the National Restaurant Association during
this time. This is a group that interacts with government on behalf of the
restaurant industry, and it gave him political experience from the
non-politician side.

Having reached the top of a second industry, he changed careers again!

* Adviser to the Federal Reserve System. Herman Cain went to work for
the Federal Reserve Banking System advising them on how monetary policy
changes would affect American businesses.
* Chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank. He worked his way
up to the chairmanship of a regional Federal Reserve bank. This is only one
step below the chairmanship of the entire Federal Reserve System (the top
banking position in the country). This position allowed him to see how
monetary policy is made from the inside, and understand the political forces
that impact the monetary system.

After reaching the top of the banking industry, he changed careers for a
fourth time!

* Writer and public speaker. He then started to write and speak on
leadership. His books include Speak as a Leader, CEO of Self, Leadership is
Common Sense, and They Think You’re Stupid.
* Radio Host. Around 2007—after a remarkable 40 year career—he started
hosting a radio show on WSB in Atlanta (the largest talk radio station in
the country).

He did all this starting from rock bottom (his father was a chauffeur and
his mother was a maid). When you add up his accomplishments in his
life—including reaching the top of three unrelated industries: information
systems, business management, and banking—Herman Cain may have the most
impressive resume of anyone that has run for the presidency in the last half
century.

“The GOP nominee is running against the incumbent president. Unlike the incumbent, Herman Cain has at least twice identified the causes of a large failing enterprise, designed goals, achieved them, and by all accounts inspired the people he was supposed to lead. Not least, Mr. Cain’s life experience suggests that, unlike the incumbent, he will adjust his ideas to reality.

Herman Cain is a credible candidate. Whether he deserves to be president is something voters will decide. But he deserves a serious look.”

Yes indeed. Cain has has bounced back after some early flubs and been steady while the frontrunners falter. He’s done well in the debates. I’m curious to see how he does with the spotlight on him. My candidate isn’t in the race and even if she does get in, I’m giving Cain serious consideration.

Key West Reader on September 30, 2011 at 10:40 PM

I suspect that the only thing hampering Cain is the name recognition. When people meet him or hear about him, they like him.

Every time I’ve seen Perry put to the test, he’s disappointed me. With Cain, it’s exactly the opposite.

Cain deserves more respect than Palin because he’s a black man and she’s a white woman. At any rate, we must respect him because of his race. Otherwise we’re racists. This is a hot potato. Better be careful everyone. /

If I were a racist I might say Cain appears to have a shallow, limited, and naive understanding of foreign affairs. And he continues to say silly things, like he won’t have any Muslims in his cabinet, or the “right of return” of the Palestinians to Israel is no big deal. And that he hasn’t shown a grasp of even a single area of policy, whether it’s foreign or domestic.

I’m curious what the answer would have been if the “Gay soldier’s” question had been directed to Herman Cain. Would he say he wants like Santorum to re-instate DADT? Or would he say “Look if you want to serve, I don’t care if you’re purple.” Maybe we’ll learn next debate. Or maybe they’ll just continue to address any gay rights question to Mother Superior again.

Valiant on September 30, 2011 at 10:59 PM

He’s still sticking to his, “Muslims aren’t American enough to serve in my cabinet” guns, right?

ernesto on September 30, 2011 at 10:14 PM

Not when he says he won’t appoint any Muslims or that local communities can ban mosques if they want.

Islam does not teach the same sort of compassion for the other that virtually every other religion including today’s “secular humanism” teaches. Muslims murder and torture each other without compunction and their own ummah, “brotherhood” has no condemnation to offer. That’s because they don’t value individual human life the way Christian westerners do. It’s not a concept in Islam, which means it’s not a concept in Muslims “hearts and minds”. Their hearts and minds instead understand what Allah teaches them in the Koran, namely, the Collective Will to Power.

When will our leaders understand this? And moreover understand that it is necessary in the end to treat Muslims in the way they themselves understand moral principles? Which ultimately means that they must be beaten back and vanquished and humiliated by a greater strength. That is clearly what they understand. Every move to win their hearts and minds only strengthens them, emboldens them to advance their own peculiar ethics of the world, which couldn’t give a damn about “hearts and minds”, as we understand the term. They will accept the shehada from anyone they can swindle and connive to recite it while at the same time are willing to kill anyone who leaves Islam. Whatever it takes to build the army of Islamic soldiers is what their ethics is about.

There is no way of avoiding the reality that the adults in this world are going to have to act like adults and step up and slap, and in a big way, Muslims who have made of their own societies the equivalent of “Lord of the Flies” and who now threaten to overrun every more advanced society with their mayhem. We’re going to have to come to terms this reality. Either that or it’s simply going to be cruel for all of us, with no kindness in sight, and possibly no one left to come and rescue us off an Island from Hell that in our passivity and cowardice we allowed to be taken over by moral pygmies.

I’m not surprised to hear that. Newt has been really greeat to his fellow candidates. Everyone should have followed his example all along.

I agree with you. He’s been a class act. Too bad he has so much baggage.

SlaveDog on September 30, 2011 at 10:58 PM

His new Contract for America is nothing short of awesome. If he articulates this well, he will surge.
Seriously, lots of conservative pr0n in it.

For me, Newt’s made up for a lot of his baggage with the way he’s debated and campaigned this cycle. He should say he was wrong on AGW and ALL will be forgiven for me.

What race does that make him racist against? The Muslim race?

Pablo on September 30, 2011 at 11:05 PM

Mohammedan morals consist in prostate like bowing 5 times a day in the general direction of some black stone in Mecca that is suppose to have fallen down from their moon-god, Allah, and attending mosque regularly at the appointed weekly time, and in breaking the ten commandments all the balance of the week. It comes natural to them to lie and cheat and kill and enslave in the first place, and then they go on and improve on that nature until they arrive at perfection. I never did dislike anyone as much as those Muslims and especially the Arabs, and, when Israel is pushed to war with them again, I hope America and England and France will not find it good breeding nor good judgment to interfere.

He’s by far my second choice right now baggage or no baggage.

He would destroy Obama in a debate and his intelligence is just off the chart.

gophergirl on September 30, 2011 at 11:05 PM

Oh what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships a misogynist pedophile demon, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ! With what reproaches will the Lord overwhelm us if we do not aid those who profess the Christian religion! Let those who have been accustomed unjustly to wage private warfare against the faithful now go against the Mohammedans and end with total victory this war which should have been begun long ago.

InkyBinkyBarleyBoo on September 30, 2011 at 11:06 PM

Well, I’m open. I would pay to see Gingrich debate Obama. Can you imagine what a nervous wreck Obama would be by the second debate?

SlaveDog on September 30, 2011 at 11:06 PM

InkyBinkyBarleyBoo on September 30, 2011 at 11:05 PM

To sum up, Islam is a cult, that’s in desperate need of reform. Or maybe it’s not reformable.

SlaveDog on September 30, 2011 at 11:01 PM

Of course.

And we also have an overwhelming abundance of Marxist Socialists Mao and Alinskyites.

Here are some highlights that I remember from hearing Newt on Hannity a few days ago:

Day one: at around 4:00 PM on the day of being inaugurated, he will issue an E.O. removing all White House Czars, effective immedialtely.

He has at least 50, possibly as high as 200 E.O.’s that he will issue within weeks of his first term.

-Total repeal of ObamaCare

-Leasing or selling of government owned land in Alaska and Nevada (where government owns as much as 80% of the states’ real estate) so it can be developed. As of now, 90% of all government owned land is off limits to development.

-Deregulation of barriers against drilling in 48 states.

-Moving location of American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

- Reforming the Environmental Protection Agency to become the Environmental Solutions Agency.

- Allowing Americans to opt out of current Income Tax to opt in for Flat Tax.

- Allowing younger people to opt out of Social Security to opt in for private accounts.

- E.O. to thwart tax payer money going to Mexico City to perform abortions (re-instating G.W. Bush’s policy).

- If he wins nomination, will challenge Obama to seven, 3-hour debates without a moderator to make Obama defend his record/ideals/shortcomings.

Much more.

Leno asks Cain why he wouldn’t appoint a Muslim

commodore on September 30, 2011 at 11:14 PM

If a certain Alaskan does not get into the race, Herman Cain is my second choice. He pretty much has been for some time.

“Crackers for Cain” would be the coolest election bumper sticker evah!

I’m white enough, bald enough, old enough, straight enough that I’d buy one in a millisecond.

I may even have a custom run done at cafepress!
