This is the story of a bona fide American, an American who lived the American dream; the son of a chauffeur and a domestic worker, Herman Cain is running for the office of the presidency. He calls himself the dark horse:
One who achieves unexpected support and success as a political candidate, typically during a party's convention. (Free Online Dictionary)
and yes, he is coming out of nowhere, at least in terms of public awareness, and is now near the top of the list of Republican contenders. On the race track, he would be considered a long shot that is gaining on the leader on the backside with momentum, class, and stamina on his side. He is in an excellent position at this stage of the race. He knows by experience, that those who dash to the lead early in the race can rarely maintain the pace in a long race, they often spit the bit and stick their toes in the ground at the head of the stretch; those with conditioning and stamina will fight for position coming into the stretch and the horse with class and heart will hold the lead in that stretch run to the wire, that is what makes a winner.
Herman Cain is a proven winner with heart and class. He has been a top executive of Pillsbury, Burger King, Coca Cola, and Godfather's Pizza. He brought Godfather's back from the precipice of bankruptcy. His first nine months at Burger King were spent flipping burgers, so that he could learn the fast food business from the bottom up and he managed to turn his regional district he was working in, from the worst performing to the highest performing in the country.
The man knows business and he knows what it takes to meet a payroll and turn a profit. He has a love of country, ability, humility, and experience: the main personality components that Obama is missing.
Have I mentioned that he is a Black Man: a Black Man that is comfortable and secure in his own identity as a Black Man. A man that can handle criticism without pouting about racism. Cain is not an ideologue with Marxist roots who views America as just another country with multiple faults that he needs to apologize for: no, not at all, he is a proud American, who believes in American exceptionalism. He is diametrically different from the adolescent narcissist currently occupying the White House; could you imagine Obama flipping burgers or turning a major corporation back from bankruptcy. Unlike Obama, Herman Cain is a man of the people, the American people, not some quasi-Socialist leader of the people of the world. Americans want a leader that can rebuild America, who has the actual tools and ability instead of running on empty with nothing but a Marxist philosophy. He is a man who knows the importance of calling on men of substance and accomplishment for an administration, instead of Marxist radicals who have accomplished nothing and seem more interested in destroying America instead of building a vibrant America.
Cain is the one Republican candidate that can speak with authority and explain to American Blacks and describe how Democrats have kept them on the virtual plantation since the days of LBJ with entitlement programs and how they need to recognize and believe in their own individual abilities instead of the notion of a collective entitlement philosophy. Cain said, “We can take this from an entitlement society to an empowerment society.” He has also maintained, “Hope and Change is not a job”, a realization that is settling in on Obama voters facing the economic realities of four more years of poverty and despair.
Herman Cain is willing to reassure Americans, “I am not going to allow America to become number 2 economically or militarily”. Americans are anxious to feel the greatness of the past rather than sacrificing in order for other countries to share in America's wealth. We are not responsible for the corruption and ineptness of every failed Socialist government in the world.
Believing in America does not mean penalizing a state for trying to remain solvent to avoid being over run by illegal aliens: Cain said, “The last thing I will do is sue a state,” he suggested instead, we send Arizona “a peace prize.”
To a business man, loaning Brazil $2 billion dollars and pleading that we hope to be your best customer, while preventing American oil companies from drilling off shore is ludicrous. He has promised that he would never loan a foreign country money while promising to be their best customer.
In support of Israel, he criticized Obama's punch below the belt of calling for Israel to accept the pre-'67 borders, a suicidal move for Israel, as a condition for getting the terrorists to the negotiating table; a move that is in effect capitulating to the Muslim Terrorists, a group that doesn't exist in Obama World. He professed, “I know you don't throw your friends under the bus, You don't need years in the statehouse to know that.” He stated the “Cain Doctrine”: “If you mess with Israel, you're messing with the United States.”
Cain has the ability to fire up a crowd without the women fainting on camera cue and he does it without a teleprompter. His speeches are flawless and flowing in context and emotion; instead of the disjointed, wandering, and meaningless babble of Obama when he is caught without his teleprompter.
Yes, Herman Cain is a Dark Horse or a long shot, but he is a winner who believes in America instead of Marxist philosophy. Obama came into the White house with no experience other than being a Community Agitator and he continued on with the same job skills and Marxist philosophy that he has studied his whole life and the country is showing the effects of this failed philosophy. America may not be able to withstand four more years of a clueless ideologue; it is time for a man with faith in America and its Constitution, who has the skills to move America forward. It is time for a man like Herman Cain.
