Steve Foley in Las Vegas

Posted on | October 21, 2011 | 6 Comments

Readers will please excuse the optical quality of this video interview, recorded last night in front of the fabulous Venetian Resort Hotel Casino:

If you’ll actually watch that video all the way to the end, you’ll gain some understanding of how bizarre Vegas really is. You’ll also hear Foley talk about his campaign for Congress in California’s 47th District and hear him reiterate some of the points he made during an interview that formed the lead of my American Spectator column today:

Steve Foley has been supporting Herman Cain’s presidential campaign since before it was even officially a campaign. In January, Foley launched the independent website Citizens4Cain.comto report news about the campaign and rally grassroots conservative activists behind Cain. Having been through a few campaigns as an online media consultant to Republican candidates, Foley is not surprised to see Cain coming under increasingly hostile scrutiny this week.
“This is what they’re going to do,” Foley said. “When you’re the front-runner now — Cain’s a front-runner — bull’s-eye right on your back, everybody’s going to come with all their slings and arrows. That’s just the way it’s gonna be.” . . .

Read the whole thing. You might also want to read Steve’s “Open Letter To Bloggers and Political Prognosticators About Herman Cain.”

    Was that the pirate show at Treasure Island?

    Read Foley’s rant. It was as constructive as building a sand castle at high tide.

    Cain is being vetted. Should he be given the privilige of serving us in the job of POTUS, we will know him. If he can’t handle himself during this, he’ll be worthless when the phone rings at 3am, like our SCOAMF.

    Cain should be vetted.  Cain should also be cautious talking to the press.  He should use that “Waterboy” technique and imagine them to all to have the head of Vlad Putin.  That might help.

    Ouch for Bachmann.  Good for Cain.

    Cain’s speech in Detroit is up at The Right Scoop.  It’s a good one.

    I’m climbing back on the Cain train, and hoping the NST part of 999 gets dropped, or set at 2% via Constitutional amendment.

    If Cain can talk with Mark Levin again, and understand how critical the amendment process is to reform, I believe Mr. Cain can crank this train up to high gear.

    A jar of ointment would do a better job than the SCOAMF. So that’s not much to go on.
