Herman Cain just pulled the Florida Straw Poll victory…by a significant margin.
I don’t think anyone is entirely happy with any candidate on the R side, we’ll end up picking one or the other. That may suck, but that’s how it works.
Herman Cain has one thing going for him that no other R candidate can match: He’s black.
His 9.9.9 plan is simple to understand, comes from an accomplished businessman, and is decidedly not filled with the double-speak offered by professional Politicians.
Forget what you don’t like about the plan…one of these candidates will win.
One of the biggest cards that will be played this cycle is the Race Card.
Herman Cain takes that argument off the table, except for the very few who will resort to calling him an Uncle Tom.
There is a significant percentage of voters in the middle who want Obama gone this cycle, and because they suffer from Political Correctness, they will vote far more quickly for Herman Cain than, say, Rick Perry or Ron Paul.
Herman Cain can beat President Obama…probably by a wider margin than any other candidate the R’s could nominate. His 9.9.9 is far better for the country than anything that will come from Perry/Romney.
Ideally, I would like to vote for a candidate who looks to the Constitution for the answer to every question on his desk in the Oval Office.
But in the real world, I’ll take the best I can get. When we are all forced into the bunkers, it will matter who sits in our elected political seats.
