Herman Cain For President

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on May 22, 2011

Atlanta radio whiner Herman Cain announced yesterday that he would be running for President. PG has heard his show, and finds it difficult to listen to. The job of POTUS is different from radio whiner, or corporate player, and Mr. Cain may be a good choice.

A debate between Herman Cain and Barack Obama would be highly entertaining. Mr. Cain is the real African American deal. He is the descendent of slaves, and graduated from Morehouse University. Mr. Cain proudly uses the speech patterns of African America.

Much has been made about Mr. Cain serving as the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza . His resume shows employment at the Department of the Navy. (His record shows no military service. Mr. Cain graduated from Morehouse College in 1967, at the height of the Vietnam War.) There was a job with Coca Cola, and a position with Pillsbury. Mr. Cain moved into the restaurant industry, and worked in Burger Kings for a few months. He took over a division of Burger King, and his restaurants did well. Pillsbury then offered Herman Cain the job of CEO of Godfather’s Pizza.

Rising through a corporation takes hard work, as well as a talent for office politics. It is as good a background for POTUS as Illinois state senator, state governor, or the Gipper. As for the pizza company, Mr. Cain was replaced by The Godfather.

The radio show was a different story. Mr. Cain loves the sound of his voice, and makes speeches, shouting much of the time. He trashes “liberals”, and says a lot of things that do not stand up to scrutiny. ( PG was driving when listening to this show, and could not take notes. PG usually turned the radio off before too long.) In the winter of 2008, Mr. Cain insisted that the “metrics” of the economy were strong. He also says we did not ask to go to war in Iraq.

Mr. Cain is a conservative. He supports a smaller government, while maintaining 100k soldiers eight time zones away. Mr. Cain supports the Fair Tax . He is a Republican, and says that the Democratic party wants to “keep me on the plantation”. (Again, PG was trying to drive when he heard this drivel.)

PG clearly remembers the first time Herman Cain made an impression. He was discussing immigration. If you are going to a-sim-a-LATE, you need to lunn ENGLISH .

Pictures today are from ” The Special Collections and Archives,Georgia State University Library” . The Rich’s in the background of the first picture was the probable site, of Mr. Cain’s childhood realization. The water in different drinking fountains tastes the same.

    You gave us a pretty good overview of Mr. Cain. Would you vote for him or not. If the answer is no, why not.

    You don’t agree with him or he talks with too much black slang. Please don’t hold the fact that he loves the sound of his own voice. The president we have now can’t finish two sentences without one or both having I in it.

    I think all politicians love to hear themselves.

    I think as of this morning I like the guy. I really haven’t read enough to make my mind up yet, though.

    I agree with following.

    Cain supports a strong national defense, opposes abortion, backs replacing the federal income tax with a national sales tax and favors a return to the gold standard. He said President Barack Obama “threw Israel under the bus” because he sought to base Mideast border talks partly on the pre-1967 war lines, and criticized the Justice Department for challenging Arizona’s tough crackdown on illegal immigration.
    “We shouldn’t be suing Arizona,” he said to cheers. “We ought to send them a prize.”

    as always great post.

      Thank you for stopping by.
      My opinion of Mr. Cain is influenced by hearing his radio show before he was a candidate. The show was unlistenable.
      The only time I will get to make a choice next year is the winter primary. I may yet vote for Mr. Cain. We don’t know who the rest of the repubs are going to be. If it is Mr. Cain against the present slate of contenders, he might be the man.
      At this time, it looks like BHO will be reelected. A lot can happen in the next 18 months, which is why they have elections. I didn’t think BHO would make a good POTUS, but he was better than John McCain.
      I would be interested in hearing why Mr. Cain went to work for the Department of the Navy, instead of serving in the military.This was during Vietnam. This was an issue with Dan Quayle and Bill Clinton. George W. Bush. did alternative service during ‘Nam, and whipped two veterans. BHO was in Indonesia, going to second grade in 1967.

    Explain this sentence in your rant: The water in different drinking fountains tastes the same.

    What does that mean? Are you a supporter of segregation? Of different drinking fountains for different races?

    And I’m not sure I get the meaning of this collection of photos in relation to Herman Cain, other than you like to post historical photos.

      Here is the story about the water fountain. .
      This was Rich’s, the classiest store in town. There are unsavory rumors of the source of water for the “colored” drinking fountains at other places.
      As for the historic photos, as my regular reader(s) know, I put up pictures that have nothing to do with the text. The picture of Rich’s (r.i.p.) was a happy accident.
      The fishwrapper has more comments about Mr. Cain today. As someone who has been in the restaurant business should know, if you stay in the kitchen it is going to get hot.
      Thanks for stopping by.

    OK. I guess if I search my old memory banks, I can recall stories of that sort. I grew up in Michigan, so it was somewhat different than Geogia (born in 1952). But of course, one could conjecture that if water fountains were segregated, even if from the same source, that the water could have a different “taste”.

    I’ve been watching Cain since he announced his exploratory committee. I don’t think he’ll have the money, but we’ll see.

    I once was in the restaruant biz, and if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Just another variation on the saying.

    At this point, I’m almost willing to say anyone would be better than the current humble man in office.
