Actually not much happened to Herman Cain except that he won the Florida Straw Poll. He didn’t change his position, or pull any rabbits out of the hat. What happened befell the two republican front runners; the public correctly identified them as professional politicians, and part of the problem.
They both engaged in politics as usual and the public has a pretty poor opinion of politicians at this point in time. Herman Cain and Ron Paul stuck to their guns and proposed solutions to our problems instead of attacking each other.
That is precisely what we the people are looking for; solutions and competence. We have had a belly full of charisma. What we are looking for is a person who will put the country first and do whatever is required to solve our problems. We are looking for someone who knows what he is doing and can lead the government to a solution for our economic problems.
The people we have in Washington now attack each other at will and play endless political games while trying to raise money for the next election campaign. Could someone who has no political experience get congress to work together for the common good?
After 2012 congress will be willing to work to solve the nation’s problems, and they will welcome the leadership of someone who knows what needs to be done and has workable solutions to our problems.
You can’t believe that army of old men who are now resident in congress will be willing to forget political agendas and do the peoples business? Never; not in a thousand years, but they will no longer be there. We the people will replace those professional politicians with some tea party types who are anxious to restore our country.
The republican presidential candidates should have got that message loud and clear with the results of the Florida straw poll, but the professional politicians will not be able to believe what they just witnessed. They will continue on attacking each other and playing the game the way they were taught.
Some of the talk radio guys think Obama might step down as president Johnson did; perhaps to be replaced by Hillary Clinton. I don’t think that would affect the outcome of the 2012 elections, the public has had enough of these democrats who put their political agenda above the peoples business. Even the democratic base has become disillusioned.
The democratic base is part of our base; we the people, and they too have suffered because of the policies of this government. Not all democrats want their country turned into a socialist utopia.
