Herman Cain Announces Bid for Presidency

The former CEO of Godfathers Pizza Herman Cain announced his bid for the presidency at a rally in Atlanta, Georgia this past Saturday at Centennial Olympic Park. Herman Cain said “I‘m running for president of the United States and I’m not running for second.” He joins a republican presidential field that also has in it Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), former Governor Gary Johnson (R-NM), former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA), former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney and former Governor of Minnesota, Tim Pawlenty, is expected to announce soon. Cain is a genuine honest leader. The main question is can he win?  The primary argument against Cain, is the fact he has no political experience, which might be a good thing. As a former corporate CEO, he KNOWS his job is to listen to his vice presidents and board members for advice and decide, as a leader, the best choice given . Also if he has epiphanies or ideas, he knows to present them to his ‘cabinet” and listen to their advice.  Then  make the right decision as A LEADER should, and not make a major policy change on the state of Israel's borders without seeking the advice of anyone! Loved the line about Obama’s teleprompter: “We need a Leader in Chief, not a reader in chief.”  It looked like Cain did his whole speech without any notes, which means he knows how to think on his own. It looked like most of the crowd at the rally were Tea Partiers, wait I thought they were all racists? With Cain as the Republican nominee at least the main stream media could not accuse his supporters of being racists, he is 100% black, Obama is only half remember? We should examine Cain on the issues before jumping on any band wagon. We should ask him some of the following questions:
1.) Are you a Progressive, and will you fight to repeal the Progressive form of Government we now have?
2.) Will you challenge the Fed, you former employer, to and audit?
3.) Are you in favor of Affirmative Action?
4.) Will you fight to return the country back to the original intent and principles of the Constitution?
5.) Will you fight for a balanced budget or is it just talk?
In the end we need to vet Herman Cain just like any other candidate. Mr. Cain is finally providing some excitement and something to talk about in the Republican field.
