The Tea Party Thinks They’ve Got The Ticket: Black GOP Member Announces Run For 2012 Presidential Election

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, For Discussion, For Your Information

America, meet Herman Cain. Where did he come from, you ask? Well, he’s the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and has found his niche among Southern conservatives after, what was said to be, a successful primary debate in South Carolina earlier this month. Cain announced his presidential run for the upcoming election this morning.

Conservative messaging guru Frank Luntz polls crowds after big events for their instantaneous reaction. And in the case of the GOP presidential debate, the results were pretty remarkable (even though the whole thing is entirely unscientific).

The crowd of roughly 30 unanimously said that pizza magnate Herman Cain won the debate. Only one of them went into the evening supporting Cain. A clear majority — citing his “straight talk” on the economy and his capacity to criticize the president — said they would now support his presidential campaign.

“I have never had this kind of reaction until tonight,” said Luntz. “Something very special happened this evening.”

Holding true to conservative policies, Cain believes that his “common sense” and “straight talk” approach to politics has the potential to win over Tea Party voters … despite the fact he’s never held an elected position and lost a U.S. Senate bid in 2004.

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’s never held elected office, losing a three-way Republican U.S. Senate primary bid in Georgia in 2004 with one-quarter of the vote. His “Hermanator” political action committee has taken in just over $16,000 this year.

With Mike Huckabee out of the race for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, three well-known politicians, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and Newt Gingrich, emerge as leaders in Republicans’ preferences. Republicans, however, have less intensely positive feelings about these three than they did about Huckabee. Two less well-known potential candidates, Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain, generate high levels of enthusiasm among Republicans who recognize them.

Okay. So, apparently, this guy holds promise for the Republicans … it’ll be interesting to see how this turns out.

    Lets get ready for all the ‘Uncle Tom’ and ‘sellout’ comments. I dont know much bout Cain myself but so far what ive heard him say makes sense so he at least deserves to be heard by our community.

    Cain did say something that was 100% real talk when asked bout defeating Obama,, stating that it will be very hard because at least half of his supporters are informed of actual FACTS….like the ones mainstream media tries to hide bout this administration.

    So he sounds like a blunt guy – PERFECT! At least to me…

    So he’s a republican? That might work to his advantage for some reason. Does he have a change? Well I’m not sure. For example, he barely has experience. Obama didn’t have TOO much experience and many people have been complaining about that. So that’s a “presidential turn-off” (if I can even use that made-up phrase). Second, he’s black. Sorry, but this country isn’t colorblind. That alone will probably work against him. I think this election will be veerrrrryyyy interesting!

    But seriously, does anybody seriously care about politics? Heck, if you can get the gas prices down, you’ll be looked at as Jesus Cristos

    Dude, at least hold some kind of public office. Mayor of Wasilla. Somethin.

    • Delight23

      that would make too much sense. you must not be in the US.

      even with his actual senate experience Obama still got the side eye…still getting it.
      But build a pizza empire and they will come.

      Ask Joe the Plumber and his weather girl, community college attending wife.

  • lemme see ya twitter i can make ustream

    no experience. the end.

  • LucasMcKenzie

    Nice try GOP. Fight fire with fire huh? Yall knew the only way to (try and) beat Obama was to bring out a black man or a black woman. On the positive side though, at least we might have another black president!

      I first heard Herman Cain on the radio a year ago. I didn’t know what color he was, I just liked what he said. I was in Centennial Park today with 10,000 other ‘Cainiacs’. He loves this country, and it will be nice not to have the ‘race’ accusation thrown in my face every time I don’t agree with Obama.

  • I Aint Mad at Ya

    CAIN ? What a fitting name seeing as how this caine has turned on his brothers also !

    Go Herman! Go Herman!!!!!
    Now we will see the hate, intolerance, racist, derogatory and vile attacks from the LEFT -and the so called Democrat Party – who claim to be againsgt all the above – but that is ALL they are about. Herman Says “We need a leader, not a READER”.
    Go Herman!!!! I see the attacks have already started – sad – he is a great, great man –

    • Ali

      Please this negro is no different that David Duke.

  • ignoranceisbliss

    Give Herman a chance to run for the highest office in the land…Now his views are to far right for me but Tea Party land where he looks like black pepper in a pot of white rice. Do your thing black man.
