Bloviating Zeppelin: Herman Cain Announces His Candidacy For President

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Herman Cain Announces His Candidacy For President

From Yahoo News:

ATLANTA – Herman Cain has run a pizza chain, hosted a talk radio show and sparred with Bill Clinton over health care. He's never held elected office. Now the tea party favorite wants to be president.

"In case you accidentally listen to a skeptic or doubting Thomas out there, just to be clear ... I'm running for president of the United States, and I'm not running for second," he told a crowd at Centennial Olympic Park on Saturday. Chants of "Herman" erupted from the crowd of thousands in downtown Atlanta.

The announcement by the businessman, author and radio talk show host that he was joining the expanding Republican field came after months of traveling around the country to introduce himself to voters.

Now the 65-year-old will see if he can use that grass-roots enthusiasm to turn a long-shot campaign into a credible bid.


Your thoughts on Herman Cain?

To present, especially considering it' 6:58 eastern and we're still here, Herman Cain is heads and tails my top choice... It's early, but no one else holds a candle to Cain...

Herman Cain , I do not know anything about him. I am awaiting the close scrutiny of him as it should be for ANY CANDIDATE for the President of the UNITED STATES.

Cain.. Better than the rest. But nowhere near the best we could do. I'd appreciate a better choice than the field we are looking at now. I think the fact is, the GOP doesn't really care who it is, they know we'll vote for whoever they put fourth against Duh Won. And that's a very bad thing. We're FUBAR.

He's flip-flopped on the health care issue, but there's always this:
I'd vote for Gilbert Gottfried before I'd vote for the present W.H. occupant.
Would I vote for Herman Cain if he's the candidate?
In a heartbeat.

Correction to my previous, BZ-
It was the bank bailout he flip-flopped on, not health care.

Agree. Old guard republicans are not what I"m looking for. Newt? Never. Same for Romney. Just no.

Pawlenty is a possibility but, meh...

Cain has zero political experience but, unlike Obama, has at least held a job.

I would vote for Cain over the current crowd of Republicans. We DO NOT need the next good ol boy this time... We need some NEW blood and I'd just as soon it NOT be a career politician!
