cain You know how you can tell which prospective candidate against Barack Obama in the 2012 elections the mainstream dino-media fears most? It’s the one you’ll never see any coverage on. You have to understand the following:

The mainstream dino-media would love to see Mitt Romney run against Obama.

The mainstream dino-media would love to see Mike Huckabee run against Obama.

The mainstream dino-media would love to see Newt Gingrich run against Obama.

The mainstream dino-media would love to see Ron Paul run against Obama.

The mainstream dino-media would love to see Donald Trump run against Obama.

You know who the mainstream dino-media fears more than any other in the prospective slate of candidates who might run against Obama 2012? Herman Cain (hat tip: Instapundit).

Why? Because Herman Cain is not afraid of Barack Obama. He’s not afraid of the mainstream dino-media. He’s fully aware of the way liberals and the mainstream dino-media operate, and how they will do whatever they can to tear down anyone who dares to question any policy or philosophy Barack Obama deigns from his throne on high the mainstream dino-media has constructed for him.

Cain, like Donald Trump, I suppose, has his own ideas about growing the economy – ideas that run 180 degrees counter to what the socialist / Marxist agenda Barack Obama and his idealogues are attempting to shove down this country’s throat. But where Cain differs from Trump – and, I believe, the rest of the prospective 2012 field – is his ability for straight talk that inspires people to believe in the power of the individual. Listening to Herman Cain, you get the sense that he has a deep and abiding faith in individuals to make their own decisions rather than government making the decisions for them.

Right now, both the mainstream dino-media and the Republican Party establishment in Washington would rather some bland, colorless RINO (Republican In Name Only) like Romney or Huckabee get the nomination in order to keep the status quo. But, given my earlier post for today, his nation cannot afford (literally!) the status quo any longer. And that’s where Herman Cain comes in. His no-nonsense, pragmatic approach to getting our fiscal house in order and our economy moving again is exactly what this country needs right now. Were he to win the nomination and choose someone with extensive foreign policy experience like former UN ambassador John Bolton, I believe he could beat Barack Obama like a cheap set of bongo drums.

I respect and admire Herman Cain, and look forward to his announcing that he’s entering the 2012 GOP presidential sweepstakes. America needs his inspiration, his optimism, his seriousness, and his can-do attitude – desperately.

Run, Herman, run!

  1. Sarah Palin is conspicuously absent amongst your group of candidates. 🙂

    I don’t think the media cares who the GOP runs. They want an interesting campaign full of sound bytes and high ratings. I’d be very surprised if Cain can get past the first few weeks of the campaign with as little name recognition as he has, though. The GOP candidate will be a substantial Presidential underdog, especially if the economy improves over the next year or so.

    I’m with you on one thing, though. The GOP needs to nominate someone fresh and exciting. Anyone coming out of the field you mention here will be trounced unless something truly horrible happens on Obama’s watch. Some GOP’ers are possibly hoping for that but I hope you’re not one of them.

  2. Yeah, I’m not so revved up about Sarah Palin. Were she to run I doubt you’d get an honest debate about her views and how she would take the country forward – people are just over the top when it comes to her, and I think she brings some of that on herself. I would truly fear for her safety if she were to run – I mean there are people out there who absolutely hate her irrationally.

    And I don’t buy that Obama is going to have an easy time of it. We’re already seeing the start of hyperinflation and jobless claim decreases starting to level off, and it isn’t going to take much to send this country back into a recession again. The country is broke and he won’t be able to spend his way out of it. Even Democrats in the House and Senate know that. This ought to make everyone squeamish about the economy: http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=1906892049

    I’ve said it before: if he wanted to take on reforming Social Security and Medicare in a bipartisan fashion he’d win in a cakewalk. But I don’t see him doing that. If all he does is demogogue attempts by anyone at reform and instead pushes immigration reform (as it appears he’s going to try and do) he’ll have a hard time being re-elected.
