    Quote of the Day – Al Sharpton Edition Part 2 

    “What [Cain] does not have the right is to rewrite history by saying that blacks were brainwashed by becoming Democrats, We went with a Party that stood up for the Civil Rights Act of ’64 and Voting Rights Act of ’65.”

    Al Sharpton’s response to Herman Cain saying many blacks have been brainwashed into voting for democrats. 

    Al needs a history book (although it probably doesn’t mention this), more republicans then democrats voted for both of these acts.  Would seem that Herman Cain may be onto something.

      Jacg, you and Cain are correct and I might add, it`s the libs who have and are continuing at every opportunity to rewrite history. Rs, conservatives want to stop it and write it the way it really was, including events that libs have in fact removed from history texts !

        The slavery issue is one that blacks have grabbed for their victimhood meme, but in fact, there were 10s of thousands or even 100s of thousands of white slaves in America in the 1600s and perhaps later; Irish and Scots in particular. Just learned of this myself recently and plan to explore it; my ancestors were here then and earlier ! Some may have been sent over from England as slaves !

    Cain V. Unable 

    Dennis Miller’s suggestion for a bumper sticker seems to have come to pass.

      I hate bumper stickers, but I`d put this one on sheet-magnet and put it on my truck !

    Quote of the Day – Herman Cain Edition 

    I think that they’re over this first African-American president thing. I think that is behind them. Here’s what’s going to do it, Greta, growing this economy. Growing this economy is what’s foremost on the minds of black Americans, Hispanic Americans, all Americans. The fact that my plan resonates, the fact that if we boost this national economy, we’re going to help the state economy — that’s going to help the local economy, and that’s going to help the household economy. And because the unemployment rate for black people is nearly 17 percent, instead of the 9 percent, they’re looking for something that’s going to boost this economy, and they see that possibility in my 9-9-9 plan.

    Herman Cain on Greta Van Sustren’s question of the black vote. 

    It does make you wonder how the black community will handle the vote next year.  Especially if by chance Herman Cain does get the nomination.  The unemployment rate is especially high in the black community and they have been hit hard by this recession and bad economy.  I would think the shine has worn off the penny of the first black president.  But the question remains that as a group, they are very loyal to the democratic party.  So, do they stay home or do they do the brave thing and vote for “change”?

    Quote of the Day – Ann Curry Edition 

    “The Washington Post is reporting that many of the delegates voted for you – are saying that they voted for you as a protest vote to express no confidence in the Republican field. Do you want to weigh in on this?”
     
    Ann Curry to Herman Cain on his straw poll victory in Florida over the weekend. 
     
    Is it just me or was she really asking
     
    You don’t really think the GOP base would vote for a black guy do you?

      Oblivious and stuck on stupid; playing the race card because apparently, that`s the only card she`s holding ! Losing hand, big time !

      Herman Cain has been my fave since early spring.

    The GOP Fox News Google Debate 

    Ok, first, the debate was way toooooooooo long. 

    I personally feel that Perry did better.  I am not sure that is a popular belief though.  He still did some damage to himself tonight with his answers on in-state tuition and immigration.  I feel that as a governor of a border state his view is different from others.  He has a very long border with Mexico and the economy of his state is very intertwined with immigrants be it legal or illegal.  I do not agree with in-state tuition for illegals.  Is it a deal breaker? Not really because that is not a federal issue, that is a state issue.  So as president it wouldn’t have anything to do with him.  I also do agree with him that the policies that will lead to fixing our porous borders have to be done on the federal level and will require boots on the ground. 

    Newt is a smart man and a good debater.  But I do feel this was his weakest performance yet.  He could potentially be a good VP candidate.  Can you imagine him debating Joe Biden?  That would be classic.

    Michele Bachmann did a better job with her answer on Gardasil this time around, but too little too late.  She did nothing to help herself today and her candidacy will not lead to the nomination.  She does look fabulous in red though. 

    Ron Paul did a very good job tonight.  I agree with him on many fiscal issues and the rights of the states.  He didn’t answer many questions on foreign policy so that is a help with many in the republican gop base, as that is where he loses much of his support. 

    Rick Santorum is another very good debater.  He also would make a strong VP candidate.  But he did nothing that will bring him to the upper tier of candidates. 

    I was happy to see that Fox decided to include Gary Johnson.  I have felt is was very unfair to include Huntsman and leave out Johnson.  He did nothing to help himself.  He will fade into oblivion after Iowa, if he makes that far. 

    Romney again proved that he can debate on the issues.  I don’t like his answers on Romneycare, mainly because they are not even truthful.  To me he really hurt himself with the GOP base by going back to his answer about an executive order to give waivers on Obamacare.  That will not solve the problem.  It must be repealed on the legislative level otherwise the feds will still be required by law to fund it.  But part of his plan in these debates is to do no harm, and he did accomplish that. 

    Huntsman gave some good answers, but he does stray from conservative principles and that is a deal breaker for me.  But he held his own tonight. 

    Hands down the winner of tonight’s debate was Herman Cain.  He sharpened his answers, he has done his due diligence on the issues and his 9-9-9 plan is something that I could get behind.  I don’t like everything about it, but it is a start.  He will get more people to notice him and will more than likely drive some cash flow to his campaign.  He is a likable man and has a compelling and very human life story.  General election voters like that.  I looked up the stats on the blog and see that some hits have come in where he stands on the issues, so he did himself some good tonight.  I personally believe that the best he can hope for is the VP slot and I do believe that he would fill that role well.  I firmly believe that the job of the VP during a general election campaign is to be the attack dog, and he will do that very well.  He is an articulate man who can draw a crowd in.  I have seen him speak three or four different times and it is something to watch live.

    Ames Straw Poll Predications 

    Michele Bachmann will win by a small margin

    Ron Paul will come in second or third.  He is an expert at getting people to vote in straw polls

    Mitt Romney will do better than most people think. 

    Herman Cain will place in the top 6, but it will not be enough to give him the momentum he needs to raise his profile and much-needed cash

    Pawlenty really hurt himself the other night and he fill finish very poorly and will be dropping out of the race before the real vote is cast

    Gingrich will finish close to the bottom, he won’t be too far behind Pawlenty in calling it a day

    Huntsman won’t even register

    Rick Perry will have a very good showing even though he is a write in

    Sarah Palin will do remarkably well for someone who has not announced her candidacy

    Santorum I think will do better than originally predicted, he had a good showing at the debate last night, he is also beloved by social conservatives for his strong and outspoken voice for the voiceless on abortion

    McCotter may actually have a bit of an impact in the poll.  He has a wonderful dry sense of humor and is a Midwesterner  Some votes of his are suspect, but overall a good solid conservative

    I read in the paper today what the candidates are serving in their tents – i.e Cain is serving Godfather Pizza of course, Bachmann is doing B-B-Q and Funnel Cake, Paul wouldn’t announce what he was serving, but the funniest part is that almost every candidate is having Mike Huckabee playing his bass.  He will be making the rounds for the party tomorrow in Ames – I suppose he need to fill his one hour show on Fox

    Who do you think will win?

      If the current trend holds sway, Ron Paul will continue to win, though it makes no sense to me whatsoever ! The poll cards were surely printed by someone from deep inside the Twilight Zone !

      If I look at the view of the pundits after the debate, Romney will win, but again, how does someone win by virtue of simply “not losing” ? That`s the best I can say about his performance, because his debate responses were middling at best.

      Who do I want to win ? Cain, Santorum and then Bachmann, in that order. They`re the only candidates who have at heart what America really needs !

      Who do I think actually WILL win ? There are too many variables at play for me even to try to guess.
