I like Cain a lot, and he is one of those possible candidates that I would love to be able to choose from. We have several very exciting candidates and I hope the Republican leadership will stay the Hell out-of-the-way and let Republican voters decide who OUR choice is! Herman Cain 2012? Bring that on!
Former Godfathers Pizza chief executive Herman Cain says he’s definitely forming an exploratory committee — likely within the next several weeks — to test the waters for a possible Republican presidential run in 2012.
Cain, a radio talk show host and favorite of the Tea Party movement, confirmed the news in an interview with The Daily Caller. He suggested that a presidential campaign is likely, but said he hasn’t made a final decision.
“Bottom line is, all of the indicators and all of the benchmarks that I had laid out and we had laid out as a team are all moving in the direction of yes,” Cain said. “We haven’t gotten there yet, but we’re moving in that direction.”
Now, I am sure that some of our ever wise Meghan McCain/David Brooks Republicans will say that Cain can never win, and we should seek a more “centrist” candidate, but, again, I say, let the Republican voters decide, and let the RINOs stay out of the way!
I also hope we can see several substantive debates, and CNN and the Tea Party Express are planning some it seems.
CNN, which has heavily promoted its nonpartisan brand through the midterm season, is jumping into the 2012 GOP primary debate fray with a bold move: teaming up with the Tea Party Express.
The debate will take place during Labor Day week next year in Tampa, the site of the 2012 Republican National Convention, and will focus on the economy and the signature tea party issue of government spending.
