Republican from GA. Conservative. African American businessman. Anyone know much about him?
Is he Muslim? Does he have a birth certificate showing he was born in the US? Does he go to a black church? It seems to make a big difference in GA.
I have no idea - I was hoping someone on here would know more about him.
Why are you still awake? Bethie's prolly cold!! lol
Nah, they're keeping J warm now. As soon as I get in bed, they'll abandon him. lol
I don't know, it might be a "three dog night."
Depends on the size of the dog. One Hamlet = 10 Allys. How is Ally? How old is she now?
Ally is great! She is about 10 now. I think!
Cool. You should have let her have puppies. I wish now that I didn't have Hamlet "fixed." He's such a great dog. But I hope we can get Kayla bred so that I'll at least have a good replacement for Hammie some day. Great Danes don't live long, you know.
I'm sure some of the rednecks won't like him because he's black.
Well, all what I can say his last name likely will cost him quite a few votes.
LOL! Here in the Bible Belt, you might be right, Misha!
Cain is a rock solid conservative businessman who was the CEO of Godfather's Pizza for many years. He has an evening talk show on WSB Radio here in Atlanta and is quite popular.
I don't think he's popular enough nationwide or has the resources to mount a serious campaign, but I'd love to see him in a debate with the Community Organizer In Chief.
Cain would have Obama for breakfast....
Oh yeah, the best communicator to hold the Oval Office in a generation, who graduated from Harvard and is a constitutional scholar would be no match for some guy who ran a chain of pizza parlors.
WOW, so a government for the people, by the people can't be run by the people.....
One has to be a very good communicator to explain to the people he screws he is doing it for their own benefit, and make them believe it. Most of your last century presidents qualify though, so the system seems to work just fine
On what basis is Obama not one of the people?
Is he from one of the Blue Bloods like the Bush or Kennedy clans?
He's the poster child for American Exceptionalism, starting from nowhere, becoming president. Part of being 'exceptional' is a Harvard education, which is where a number of presidents got their higher education, including some of the founding fathers. He didn't get the finiest education because he was the richest, or from a connected family, but because he earned it with academic excellence.
So he did well in school. Perhaps he should go back there. It's always been said that those who can't do, teach.
Obama obviously cannot handle being President, so maybe he should go back to academia and teach on politics. God knows our grandchildren would be grateful if he would.....
Wasn't talking about Obama. It was your comment regarding Cain that came off as elitist. You know, the "harvard" spiel and all. That's it. There is no doubting the credentials of Obama. My question is this. Does the resume trump substance? Can a man who's life is one of achievment not be good enough?
President Obama's life IS one of achievement.. Or do you think most black kids go to Columbia and then go on to graduate suma cum laude from Harvard. He was elected editor of the Harvard Law Review. His academic background puts him in the company of Hamilton, Adams and Hancock, who went to those schools. Among conservatives, the role of 'elitist' institutions is often ignored.
The list of the founding fathers is generally accepted as - George Washingon, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, John Hancock and Ben Franklin. Look at the elitist background of the group.
Jefferson - College of William and Mary
Adams - Harvard
Madison - Princeton
Hamilton - Kings College - (now Columbia)
Hancock - Harvard
Only Washington and Franklin did not have 'elitist' educations.
How many since didn't have "elitist" educations? So it's especially significant that he's "black" and went to columbia and harvard? What are you trying to say Doug? Bush went to yale. What's his excuse?
It's significant that a black man went to Harvard or Yale or any ivy-league college because they didn't do it with family influence or a pile of folding money. Bush may have been admitted because of excellence or because his family had pull. But you know a poor kid who grew up in Hawaii, whose mother came from Nebraska didn't get in any other way than excellence. Ignore the admittance if you like. It's the regard of his peers that got him elected to the Harvard Law Review, and his performance in Harvard that got him 'suma cum laude', which is not latin for, 'I took out the trash.'
The original discussion was a comparison between Obama, who has a degree in international relations, with a businessman who ran a pizza chain. I have nothing at all against Cain - but let's get real. Knowing how to get the best price on pepperoni does not qualify you to run the State Department.
Doug, I agree with you. I just wanted to hear you to explain it in your own words. Very telling.
"but let's get real. Knowing how to get the best price on pepperoni does not qualify you to run the State Department."
Neither does hanging out with Marxist professors and being a Community Organizer
Well, obviously HE thinks his life is one of achievement. Who else is arrogant enough to write TWO autobiographies before anybody even knew who he was?
academic excellence...sources please. Maybe you have access to information the rest of us doesn't.
And whose only job experience has been as A Community Organizer and perpetually running for higher office. A man with no real world knowledge at all.
Constitution scholar? He obviously didn't learn much, did he?
Fact is, anybody who has run a business or company of any considerable size whatsoever would be more qualified to be President than Barack Obama. Sorry about that....
He's an interesting candidate. A successful businessman, lots of experience with mass media, and he can perhaps bridge the gap between the Tea Party and the rest of the GOP. He could potentially connect with black voters in swing states, such as Pennsylvania. He's certainly a longshot to win the Republican ticket, and the color of his skin probably doesn't help him there (although I think it would help him in the general election).

I kind a feel sorry for the poor guy. I don't think he would be foolish enough to run for president knowing he had all this stuff in the closet. I wonder if his closest competitor, Mitt is digging up this dirt on Cain.
