The Hermanator Wins Florida Straw Poll

Rate this post

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.”

  1. 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!

    • That poll shocked the crap out of me too Artist. Though personally I am a Bachmann fan it was good to see the Tea Party put the screws to the libs by voting not for an affirmative action candidate but for someone who they see can help the country get back on its feet.
      By the way Jeanine was already doing “damage control” (again) by saying that Herman Cain is a paid prop to deflect the racism charge from the tea party that is why he won the straw poll. Wow…didn’t see that coming did anyone else here did? 😉
      In the end I will vote for whoever the nominee is (except you…know…who) but it was still good to see this poll.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

    • No worries Steve it was one of those “out of the blue” moments for me as well. I should have figured he stunk when the establishment GOPers started fawning over him.

  4. Hahaha RINOs! This was soooo sweet.

    • Debbie,
      Yeah, you just know this has to be driving the repub establishment batty, as their boy Mitt seems to be losing traction.
      And it definitely doesn’t bode well for Perry, either, who hasn’t done very well in the debates so far.
      I think this shows that a lot of conservatives are willing to consider people who aren’t professional politicians.
      And I think that is a good thing. 🙂

      • Yeah, that whole Muslim thing has me a little puzzled.
        I think he got some bad advice from somebody.
        One of the reasons I like Herman is because I know he’ll keep his veto pen close at hand and won’t be afraid to use it.
        LOL – I don’t think GWB found his until well into his second term.

  5. Mr.Cain knocked it out of the park,when he stated he would dismantle the EPA.

  6. What about Ron Paul? I would prefere him to all of the neocons!

    • Ron Paul has a lot of excellent domestic ideas (such as getting rid of entire federal agencies and ridding us of the Fed) that the repubs would do well to pay a lot of attention to, but he comes up a little short in the foreign policy department.
      Isolationism is a nice story book idea, but in the real world it’s not very realistic.
      Somebody is going to be the big boy on the block, and I would prefer that somebody be us and not China or Russia.


    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 won’t get the GOP nomination because the mainstream media are doing their utmost to pretend he doesn’t exist. Shame on them.
      Last weekend, Paul won big in the California straw poll, way ahead of the supposed golden boys Romney and Perry. But did you/we hear about it? No! For that matter, there’s more media coverage of Herman Cain winning the Florida straw poll.
      That just makes me wonder what they are afraid of. Gosh, can it be because Paul wants to get rid of the Federal Reserve, that strange private-govt hybrid beast from Jekyll Island?
      How are you doing, tbm? I prayed for you at Mass this morning. LOL

  8. Steve,
    Yeah, the four jackasses in elephant suits need to go.
    We need a for-real conservative in the WH.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

    • I agree…and he’s a little flaky. No offense to any who may like him… I just can’t see him winning…he has a couple of great ideas…but nevertheless, the Israel thing is a biggie with me too.


    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 my previous words .. I’ll just leave it at that — I will say, after writing some of the stuff, I sighed – immediately regretting it .. I do have a conscience.
    As far as your prayers, I appreciate the thought but I’m really not an unhappy person in general. I have a very loving family and friends. I work hard for my money (construction business) — I resent when I hear so often that everyone with my political ideology are asking for handouts — which is absolutely a false stereotype. I admit, there is a problem – especially in the inner city – but in rural poverty stricken areas as well, of people who have a crutch living on government handouts.
    It’s not as simple as just taking away all welfare however — There are many people who have worked hard and end up disabled who NEED SSI or other government assistance — and no , Charity and churches will not always come through or be able to come through for these deserving people. This is one area I disagree with Ron Paul on… I would feel a sigh of relief, however, if that man won the the GOP nomination, unlike the terror I felt when GWB won the nomination in 2000 …
    I think what he said about the 9/11 attacks is misunderstood and that he is right. He’s not bashing America — because a lot of the foreign policy decisions that former presidents made was not in the best interest of America, nor did it represent America. He is pointing out that the flawed foreign policy of former administrations tend to cause unforeseen blowback…
    We need to draw down our military presence a bit all over the world — We are perceived by the east and west as being the worlds BULLY — this is NOT a good thing. I think Paul would start us on the right path in correcting that perception; though it’s not something that would happen over night.
    Anyway that’s just my 2 cents. Have a goodnight.

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

  13. 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 is a weapon and assistance against evil greater than logic, than words, than any kind of eloquence, intelligence, brilliance or communication!
