Herman Cain Speaks at Iowa State Fair

Posted on | August 12, 2011 | 7 Comments

Here are the photos of Herman Cain’s soap box speech this morning:

I counted no fewer than eight TV cameras recording the speech. I’ve got videos, but this McDonald’s where I’m working has crappy bandwidth on the WiFi, so the videos will have to wait for later.

    Cain was DOA coming into Iowa.  I was pumped after SC.  Then he faded.  He was put on life support.  I don’t know why.  Does it matter?
    Two schools of thought.  Trim the herd at the earliest.  Start freeing up that cash on the sidelines.  Or ….  Drag it out.  Keep the ObamaGoebbel-MFM smear machine wondering as long as possible.

    He has won the two most recent conservative Straw Polls – Western Conservative Summit – 48% of over 600 (Perry 13% – both spoke at the event), Gathering of the Eagles – 55% of over 1000 attending.  Many people are JUST learning about him this weekend, because he has gotten little daily national campaign coverage.  He has gotten a great reception in Iowa.  He is not at all on life support.

    Herman Cain Is doing Great! Every time some one gets to hear him speak he wins. Problem is during the Debates he never gets the time like the Other Candidates. The Media wants RINO Romney or Bachman to win.  There needs to be a Counter of how much speaking time each Candidate gets and what kind of Questions they get. You Give Herman Cain an Open Mic and he will get all to follow.  I met him in Colorado and after he spoke he won the Straw Poll and took 48% second took 13%.
    If they would just give him time to DEBATE he would win.

    Seems like a decent sort, but he waffled and flip-flopped on the issues of Muslims in his cabinet and the mosque in TN.  Lost my respect entirely.

    Man, ain’t a single nigga in the crowd lol He bragged that  he spent almost no money for his 5th place showing in Iowa. That ain’t gonna work against the Obama cash machine–if Cain even gets that far.
