The Hermanator Wins Florida Straw Poll


Via the Washington Times:

ORLANDO — Former Godfather Pizza CEO Herman Cain won the Presidency 5 straw poll here Saturday, delivering a blow to Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s frontrunner status and a victory for a candidate who has struggled to transform his grassroots popularity into strong showings in national polls.
“Tonight’s winner is Herman Cain,” Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced. “It shows you something, the road to the White House come through Florida, and it pays to spend time here.”
He received 37 percent of the more than 2,600 votes cast.
“Thank you to the Republican voters for this incredible honor of being named the winner of the Presidency 5 straw poll in Florida today,” Mr. Cain said. “This is a sign of our growing momentum and my candidacy that cannot be ignored. I will continue to share my message of ‘common-sense solutions’ across this country and look forward to spending more time in Florida, a critical state for both the nomination and the general election.”

This is pretty amazing…….
I would be shocked if Herman Cain was the nominee…and even more shocked if he beat Obama… but it sure would be sweet watching all the “the Tea Party is racist” screaming progressives and members of the Black Caucus and folks like Jeanine Garofolo’s heads explode if a 100% Black man ran against their 50% Black man!!!!
I wonder what will happen!?!
Maybe Chris Christie will run on the same ticket w/ Herman!!!!
hahahahahaha! That would sure be interesting!

This race (note to libs: Don’t get your panties all twisted; it’s not a racist word!) is getting interesting. It’s not looking good for Perry. LOL

Steve old buddy you know your my bestest, best friend and I agree with you on everything you just said except on Christie. I kind of hope he stays out of any possible run. Make no mistake I liked Christie at first (I really liked him!) but with his stance on Immigration (pro amnesty) Global Warming (he’s a believer) and anti gun he quickly turned me off of any prospect of voting for him.

I hope Ron Paul gets the nomination. He’s the one guy I think is honest in the entire field of candidates … I don’t agree with everything he says but his heart is in the right place.

Ron Paul blamed the US for 9/11, wishes to legalize drugs and dismantle our military. Ron Paul need to go away and never, EVER return.
May his failure (again) finally prompt him to give up ever trying to be president.

I could never support Ron Paul because of his complete disinterest in Israel. I truly believe that allowing Israel to be wounded by the enemies surrounding her will bring destruction on those who stand by idly and do nothing.
If not for this fatal flaw I could be tempted to listen to Ron Paul more than I am currently willing to do.

Thank you but I’m not in dire need of prayer as you may think. I did lose sight of your humanity and regretted my cruel words toward the Lady who broke her leg – among other things I said … I tend to carry anger over injustices that have taken place and am way to quick to demonize and make war with the side the perceived injustice is coming from. I’m not going to get into details , as there is no need to dig up any more animosity. Anyway I am sorry for the cruel nature of some of… Read more »

Would a ticket with Herman Cain as President and Ron Paul as VP fly right?

tbm, everyone, everyone needs prayers! I pray for you every morning in my prayers and I also prayed for you at Mass after I received the Holy Eucharist. Receiving and needing prayers is not contingent upon anyone’s successful or non-successful life circumstances, whether or not they have family and friends. There are no contingencies. Prayer is an act of love, intercessory when praying for others and I know that your civility and goodness has come forth as a result of those prayers! I told you I had faith in you! But most importantly, the power of prayer is immeasurable! It… Read more »
