John Hawkins Interviews Herman Cain

Posted on | April 10, 2012 | 8 Comments

Herman Cain sees the bright side of his recent experiences:

At the colleges and the universities, it’s standing room only in these auditoriums with these college students which is very, very inspiring — and they are paying attention. They have awakened to the hypocrisy of this administration.  But I plan to continue to stay focused on the mission, which is to defeat Barack Obama.

Read the whole thing. It is Cain’s relentless, cheerful optimism that makes him such an inspiring figure, and I hope the college kids get that.

UPDATE: Almost forgot: Cain Solutions Revolution will have an event at the Capitol on Monday, April 16 — register now!

    He would have been a hell of a nominee if he did not implode due to poor damage control and a mismanaged campaign.  

    And failure to heed the sage advice of Robert Stacy McCain!

    But what a lot of people don’t realize is how difficult it is to make that decision to get out of the race. I went through that. It’s almost more difficult to decide to get out of the race for President than it is to make a decision to get into the race. So I understand that Catch-22 that they must be feeling. No one can make that decision except them.

    More evidence that Herman Cain is smarter than Stacy when it comes to the subject of Newt Gingrich.

    Roll over for Romney. Must roll over from Romney. (the voice of the RNC rolling around my head)

    Romney may be the political equivalent of a boot to the head, but he’s still better than the poisoned-tip knife to the gut of Obama.

    My God, Santorum must have heard the same voice.

    Cain certainly could have managed the damage control better but there was no way he was going to be viable in a Republican nomination race after the last woman alleged a long-term relationship.  Ironically, if he’d been a Democrat, it probably would have been no big deal – if the allegations came out at all.

    In the Democratic Party, you can run for President, father a child out of wedlock while your wife dies of cancer, and they still embrace you.  Well, until you’re indicted, of course – but they are right there standing with you in full support of your denials, no matter how implausible, right up until the very second they scatter like cockroaches.

    But he’s a man with a lot of good ideas and a sharp wit, so we will do well to welcome his input and leadership.  There is a lot that needs doing, and even more that needs undoing.

    See you at the Capitol for a bit of much needed uplift 🙂

    A good reminder why Rick Santorum was your second choice.
