Cain Is More Than Able

First in a series of articles on the major presidential candidates

He was an upstart - well-intentioned, certainly; personable, without question; a political maverick, what else could a conservative, black Republican be?

All he lacked was name recognition, money, organization, elective experience and familiarity with foreign affairs and U.S. foreign policy.

He, of course, is Herman Cain, a highly successful black (not "African-American") businessman who has ridden perhaps the most unpromising set of credentials in the last half century or longer to, or near, the top of the heap of an impressive array of Republicans eager to replace President Barack Obama in 2013.

Starting with just about zero support, this genuine American success story has rocketed to the number one or two spot (depending on which surveys you believe) among the Republican challengers. Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, is the other front-runner. Cain's achievement is all the more remarkable when you consider the mainstream media's concerted attempt to ignore him, except when he "misspeaks." Were it not for Fox News, you might not even know that Cain was running.

The mainstream media seem to have decided the fight for the Republican nomination is, for all intents and purposes, a two-man contest pitting Romney against former Texas governor, Rick Perry. Perry, you'll recall, burst on the primary scene only a few short weeks ago, zoomed to the top of the heap, then promptly proceeded to inflict on himself his very own Plaxico Burris experience. That was before his less than presidential, over-the-top aggressive stance vis a vis Romney at the last debate. Surprisingly, none of this has significantly muted their analysis that the contest for the Republican nomination ultimately wll come down to Romnety vs. Perry.

I disagree.

That is not to say, of course, that news reports of the apparent shortcomings in Cain's knowledge are simply propaganda. No, at least some of them are quite real. But - and here is the part the mainstream media seem not to get -- it is the way he has handled these gaps and criticisms that has earned him so much respect, including mine.

How does he handle them?

(Get ready for this all you EMT's. Get those heart defibrillators a-humming.)

He handles them with (gasp!) honesty.

Not only that, but he immediately brings himself up to snuff by learning about the issue in question from a first-rate group of advisors whose political philosophies are consuistent with his own and by reading the analyses of other experts. He admits his inadequacies and then immediately sets out to correct them. The man is honest!

The so-called Palestinian "right of return" is a perfect example. Early on, Cain was asked about his attitude toward this self-proclaimed Palestinian "right". He fumbled the question. Badly. It was clear that, at best, he only had the foggiest notion what the term both means and implies.

The very next day, another reporter asked a tough follow-up question, perhaps hoping to scare the unpretentious political rookie out of the arena.

Surprise! Cain not only answered knowledgeably and eloquentlly, he demonstrated an understanding of the nuances and implications of the concept as well and identified where it fit - or, actually, did not fit -- in his highly developed, moral political philosophy.

The man actually learns from his mistakes. And, unlike President Obama among others, he learns quickly. Mr. Obama still maintains that his solutions to the nation's ballooning, nearly $15 trillion debt, declining productivity and stagnant unemployment is to throw more money at them. Thus, none of his ideas can ever fail. If a policy appears to be faltering, simply raise taxes and fire away.

There are other good reasons to likeHerman Cain. One is his warm smile, both genuine and contagious. Another is his marvelous sense of humor. The last time we had a president with a similar sense of humor and joie de vivre, his name was John F. Kennedy, though a good case can be made for good 'ol boy, Bill Clinton.

President Obama more closely resembles a latter-day Jimmy Carter, arguably our worst president ever.

Finally, consider this: Herman Cain has already made the most significant contribution of all the candidates, including Mr. Obama, to the American discussion on simplifying and making more equitable our system of taxation. His "9-9-9" proposal is well thought out and easy to understand. It may or may not turn out to be the best plan out there, but it has already given birth to other thoughtful plans by the other contenders, all of which appear to be superior to our current 17,000-page, nearly six million-word tax code and tax system, which is impossible to understand, inequitable and corrupt.

The race for the presidency has only just begun. We've got another 15 months of campaigning to endure and the signs are that this may be one of the dirtiest presidential campaigns in American history.

Mr. Obama appears very vulnerable, and Republican challengers appear eager to take him on. Another slip or two, and he may also acquire a challenger or two from his own party. But potential opponents should not be lulled into believing that it will be easy to oust this incumbent president.

Mr, Obama's administration can fairly be characterized as little short of disastrous. But no one should gainsay his campaigning skills. In 2008, he proved himself a master at this arcane art. And he hasn't stopped campaigning since.

Who is most likely to defeat the incumbent? Conventional wisdom points toward Mr. Romney, but conventional wisdom is more often wrong than right.

American voters need to take a long look at Herman Cain. This intelligent, motivated, good-matured, tough, coldly realistic cancer survivor and political neophyte may be just what is needed to turn this country around.

Phillip, I agree with you assessment of Cain. The reason the media, except for Fox News, does not support a conservative is because they are clearly liberal. I the case of Cain, he does not fit the lefts idea of what a black presidential man should be. The left cannot believe a black man can be conservative and add to this the fact that Cain has voiced his opposition to what liberal democrats have done to black people. As a result, he is attacked as a racist, based on the fact he believes people should be responsible. As for experience or intelligence, Obama’s only experience was as a community organizer (basically a mix of Chicago OWS protestor and a corporation shakedown artist, i.e. Jessie Jackson), and then a few months as an Illinois Senator, who spent his time campaigning. Cain is a good man and whether you like his stand on 999 or abortion, it doesn’t really matter. The President cannot change tax policy and cannot change Roe vs. Wade, it requires congressional change. I believe he is honest and fits the mold of a true Reagan Conservative. Good post..

Phillip,

Cain’s analogy of slavery is just crap. It is merely red meat political bulls**t, and it cheapens the reality of what blacks were forced to endure in this country.

People on welfare can, and do choose to pull themselves out of poverty legally.
The same cannot be said for those who were actually enslaved against their will.

Or should we be asking Harriet Tubman for her opinion?

Herman Cain is a very refreshing newcomer on the political scene. He education is superior as is his real world work experience. He has accomplished much on his own initiative.

There is much to admire in Herman Cain. I find him good-natured, knowledgeable in most things important for a political candidate, personable, and someone whom I believe says what he believes.

I don’t believe Mr. Cain has any strings attached to him pulling him in directions he doesn’t wish to go. And, as president, I believe his decision making will be toward the good of the country and not some special interest group(s).

Herman Cain is a man with the ability to explain his beliefs in terms that are quite simple to understand and smack of truthfulness. He does not couch his words in political fence-sitting or meaningless platitudes.

I could easily vote for the Herman Cain I know today. I look forward to learning more about the man and his ideas.

So, Phillip, how do you think Cain will do in Iowa and New Hampshire without any organization in those states? Let me repeat that. He has NO organization in those states. His camapaign depends completely and utterly upon one source: FOX News. If it’s a serious decision, then it would be interesting. Is it possible to win a GOP primary with no money, no organization, literally nothing but exposure on FOX News? There is a lot of suspicion that Cain is a motivational speaker who is more motivated to sell books and garner speaking fees than any desire to win a nomination. Nothing wrong with that. Sarah Palin made a pile fleecing the rubes.

Don’t be one of the rubes, Phillip.

Royal Flush,
Herman Cain and “superior education” do not go together in the same sentence. Not ever. Not even once. He majored in Accounting, NOT economics as he has claimed, and we’re not talking a top notch school, either.

Herman Cain and “knowledgeable” do not go together in the same sentence either. He’s a motivational speaker who cannot even explain his economic plan. When a candidate refers to a country as “Uz-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan,” you must surely recognize you are watching a clown.

By the way, Royal Flush, Cain is pro-choice. I’m surprised you would consider him. I think conservative Joe Scarborough, a former GOP congressman, has it right.

“It is hard for people in the mainstream media who are trying to be fair to state what seems so obvious to so many Americans: that Herman Cain is making this up as he goes along. He’s going on a glorified book tour…he does not appear by any objective standard to be running a presidential campaign.”

Does Rocky Marks and phx8 believe that Herman Cain is just another ignorant black man?

RM, “Cain’s analogy of slavery is just crap. It is merely red meat political bulls**t, and it cheapens the reality of what blacks were forced to endure in this country.”

So RM, are you like the white girl Adrienne, who believes she knows what it is like to be a black man in a housing project?

phx8, “His camapaign depends completely and utterly upon one source: FOX News.”

Not true phx8; the liberal MSM has made him the topic of every news broadcast; so thank (not Fox News) but the MSM for his popularity.

“By the way, Royal Flush, Cain is pro-choice.”

This is an absolute lie and the left can be counted on for the ability to spread such falsehoods. I will post the truth, but it’s a waste of time. You know he is pro-life and you know you lied, and I find it disturbing that a writer on WB would blatantly lie for political gain:

Many folks are impressed with flim-flam and don’t have the mental capacity to judge depth of character, sincerity and honesty.

Besmirch and smear all you wish, I like Herman Cain today and look forward to learning more about this capable man. I don’t expect my candidate to be perfect, all knowing, or possessing all wisdom, as our current president appears to believe of himself.

Give me the humble, honest, reasonably intelligent, freedom loving candidate any day over the pompous ass we now have.

Comment #331146

Why is it that the left is always the one to bring up racism? I was listening to Rush Limbaugh a few days ago, and he made an interesting comment. He said that a liberal will always accuse the conservatives of the thing they are doing. To accuse the TP of racism, means racism is the biggest problem of the left.

MSNBC Analyst: GOP Sees Herman Cain as a ‘Black Man Who Knows His Place’

“On Martin Bashir’s television program this afternoon, Democratic strategist and MSNBC analyst Karen Finney said that Republicans are supporting Herman Cain because of his race:

“One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy,” Finney said. “I think he giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he’s a black man who knows his place. I know that’s harsh, but that’s how it sure seems to me.”

“Thank you for spelling that out,” Bashir responded.

This isn’t the first time liberals have made this kind of charge about Cain and his supporters. During an online production of NBC’s Meet the Press this week, Democratic congressman Elijah Cummings of Maryland said white voters support Cain to show they aren’t racist. “I think when [members of the Tea Party] can vote for a Herman Cain and hear him say the things that he says they feel like, ‘Well, you know, I can, I support this guy and…so it shows that I’m not racist and I’m supportive,’” Cummings told host David Gregory.

Liberal comedienne Janeane Garafalo told Current TV host Keith Olbermann earlier this month that Cain is popular with Republicans because it “hides the racist element” of the party.”

So what you’re trying to tell us is that “THE MAN is actually holding you down?

You can’t have it both ways. Either you are with Herman Cain who you claim espouses personal responsibility, or this is all hyperbole.

Which is it?

Blacks during slavery were beaten and killed for trying to escape their lot.

Please, share with us your experiences trying to “escape” the housing projects, and then let’s compare it to the experiences of those that were beaten and killed trying to escape slavery.

Not quite the same is it?

Jeremiah, thanks for the post. As usual, the mentally disordered liberal talking heads prove once again their hatred of all things not liberal. Apparently they believe that anyone objecting to their politics must be racists as the promoter in chief of liberal socialism is obama, and he is obviously black with just a tinge of white.

They can’t believe that any black man or women could possibly be conservative. And, they believe that any conservative couldn’t possibly support any one who is not white.

Very stupid, very racists I would think.

”..and who are avowed socialists, rather than common sense and a genuine love for this country.”

Royal Flush,

Where is your evidence that Obama is an “avowed socialist?” As far as I can see, he has proposed nothing that approaches socialism. In fact, his principal economic advisers and appointees are straight from Wall Street. His health care proposal is straight from the Heritage Foundation. Indeed, it was recently revealed that conservative advisers of Romney on the Mass. health plan spent considerable time with the Obama health care team in crafting the health care reform law. The auto bailout was started by the Bush administration and has precedent in conservative administrations, i.e., Lockheed, 1971, Continental Illinois National Bank and Trust Company, 1983, Savings & Loan, 1989, etc. http://www.propublica.org/special/government-bailouts

I don’t really care if you like him or not, but accusing him of socialist policies is contrary to the public record.

Posted by: Rich at October 28, 2011 7:53 PM
Comment #331153

Rich, that obama has been restrained from realizing all his socialist ambitions does not belie his public statements advocating just that. His public comments regarding redistribution of income and assets is just one example. There are comments in his books that I will attempt to relocate and quote in another post that clearly indicate his socialist yearnings.

Phillip good post, interesting read on Cain. He has many good qualities as a person. I find it a bit strange that you would compare Cain to Obama however. Especially since you have distorted Obama record so much with such nonsense as “President Obama more closely resembles a latter-day Jimmy Carter, arguably our worst president ever.” It is this type of conservative mythology that causes each election to become dirtier than the previous election, BTW.

The one liners you have put into this post are extremely funny, my hats off to you.

great work! Hilarious.

…to the American discussion on simplifying and making more equitable our system of taxation.His “9-9-9” proposal is well thought out and easy to understand.

ROTFLMAO, great comedic work Phillip.

The problem with conservatives is they think that because someone can be an executive or sit on the board of a corporation they can be a politician and run the country, didn’t you guys learn a thing during the 8 years of the worst president ever, GWB?

Royal Flush,
I saw an interview two well-educated blacks attacked Cain for being an accommodationist in the 60’s. Cain went to college in Atlanta during the height of the civil rights movement, and his book, he describes how he kept his head down. He was content to stay at the back of the bus. He was an accommodationist.

So, Cain lacked courage when he was a young man. When the time came to risk standing up for himself, he declined. He didn’t want to make waves. That’s fine. A lot of other people did the same. Not everyone marched side by side with MLK.

In that interview, those two well-educated blacks did not see this as charitably as me.

Correction- Cain made his pro-choice comment on 10/19. Here it is again, in case there is any question. Remember, this is what he said when he had a national audience:

“No, it comes down to is, it’s not the government’s role — or anybody else’s role — to make that decision. Secondly, if you look at the statistical incidents, you’re not talking about that big a number. So what I’m saying is, it ultimately gets down to a choice that that family or that mother has to make.

While you’re at it, Jeremiah, chew on this one:

“It’s basically the position that just about every pro-choice politician has in America. I don’t know too many pro-choice politicians who are for abortion, who want more abortions … but they say the decision is a choice the government shouldn’t be involved in. That is Herman Cain’s position, which does not make him pro-life. That is the quintessential pro-choice position on abortion.”

an interesting tactic, isn’t it. it seems the race card can be played in either direction. although, if cain does become the republican nominee it will present an interesting problem for the left. it will take away thier ability to say conservatives won’t vote for obama because he’s black. he will actually have to stand on his record as president, and not his race. this will be the real problem IMO.

wow…… what a stretch. sounds to me like he’s saying policies put in place by guilty white liberals have done more harm than good. i’de have to agree.


“Blacks during slavery were beaten and killed for trying to escape their lot.”


what does this have to do with the modern era? slavery was abolished @ 145 years ago.

“Please, share with us your experiences trying to “escape” the housing projects, and then let’s compare it to the experiences of those that were beaten and killed trying to escape slavery.”


again…..what is the relevance of this statement? why don’t you tell us what it was like to give harbor to a runaway slave. oh wait……….you can’t, that is unless you are older than you would have us believe.


jeremiah seems to be a black man who is actully speaking from experience, while you on the other hand are speaking of something you have no actual experience with, slavery. kind of a bitch when someone who is actually part of a group you proclain to want to help points out the failure of liberal policies, which have held back, and made life time dependants of the state those who they proclaim to be advocates for.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herman_Cain


“At age 36, Cain was assigned in the 1980s first to analyze and ultimately to take the reins of Burger King, where he managed 400 stores in the Philadelphia area. At the time, Burger King was a Pillsbury subsidiary. Under Cain’s leadership his region went, in three years, from the least profitable for Burger King to the most profitable.[citation needed] According to a 1987 account in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Pillsbury’s then-president Win Wallin said, “He was an excellent bet. Herman always seemed to have his act together.”[32] At Burger King, Cain “established the BEAMER program, which taught our employees, mostly teenagers, how to make our patrons smile” by smiling themselves. It was a success: “Within three months of the program’s initiation, the sales trend was moving steadily higher.”[33]”

dbs,

It’s called context;

con·text   /ˈkɒntɛkst/
1.the parts of a written or spoken statement that precede or follow a specific word or passage, usually influencing its meaning or effect.

It was Herman Cain that suggested that the;

“black Democratic leaders are willing to see the next generation of Blacks remain in economic slavery on the Democratic plantation, so long as they can deny any Republican a perceived political victory.”

Those are Cain’s words, not mine.

So… Are we to believe that Cain thinks that;

“Don’t blame Wall Street, don’t blame the big banks. If you don’t have a job and you are not rich, blame yourself!”

Or are we to believe the Herman Cain that made the first statement.

I’m sorry. You cannot be responsible for your own actions and yet still be “economically enslaved on the Democratic plantation” at the same time.

So I’ll ask again, which is true?

I may have not walked a mile in Cain’s shoes, but I can definitely recognize hyperbole when I hear it.

“It was Herman Cain that suggested that the;”

“black Democratic leaders are willing to see the next generation of Blacks remain in economic slavery on the Democratic plantation, so long as they can deny any Republican a perceived political victory.”

And Herman Cain is correct. The democrats only care about blacks for political reasons. Proof: The left calls for alternative energy and wind power, because we are all going to die from GW. Teddy Kennedy and clan said, “Not in our back yard, we don’t care how much wind is blowing, it messes up our view of the ocean”.

Liberal Democrats always have big humanitarian plans, as long as it’s with someone else’s dime. Liberal compassion for blacks is only lip service and the ulterior motive is money and power. As has been said before, without one single response from the left; LBJ said, after the Republicans helped him get Civil Rights passed, “We’ll have these n*****s voting Democrat for the next 200 years”. I guess, if we delete this statement from history, it will just become non-existent. But it is part of history and was said by a Democrat president, and my question is, what was LBJ’s real reason for passing civil rights?

Jeremiah,

“”LBJ said, after the Republicans helped him get Civil Rights passed, “We’ll have these n*****s voting Democrat for the next 200 years”

At the Howard University commencement in 1965, Johnson said;

“To shatter forever not only the barriers of law and public practice, but the walls which bound the condition of many by the color of his skin. To dissolve, as best we can, the antique enmities of the heart which diminish the holder, divide the great democracy, and do wrong — great wrong — to the children of God…”

Johnson was a notorious a**hole, but he did get things done. He also was the first President to pursue prosecution of the KKK since Grant.

Look, it’s easy to find racially insensitive statements made by political figures, especially in the times before our recent political correctness.

Just for grins Royal can you name a businessman that has made a successful transition from dictator er ah CEO of a large corporation to president in the modern era? Lets face it GWB is the poster boy for the conservative myth of business leader as president.

The only thing I’m deflecting is the BS that has become the conservative myth du jour dbs.

Even with the crook in charge of the Congressional witch hunt, Daryl Issa dreaming up all he can it seems this administration is still cleaner than the GWB administration which was less crooked than the Reagan administration. Them’s the facts dbs.

As far as being shown the door I wouldn’t count him pout just yet.
