Herman Cain: Barrack Obama's Worst Nightmare

Herman and Gloria Cain
Herman Cain was born in Memphis, Tennessee and grew up in Georgia. His mother was a hard working cleaning woman and his father worked as a chauffeur. Cain has a modern education. He excelled in the fields of mathematics and computer science. Cain graduated from Morehouse College in 1967 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics. He earned a Master of Science degree in computer science from Purdue University in 1971. Cain's adult life features a wide range of employment experiences. He worked in the field of ballistics for the U.S. Department of the Navy and then as a business analyst for the Coca-Cola Company.
He is the author of four books: Leadership is Common Sense (1997), Speak as a Leader (1999), CEO of SELF (October 2001), and They Think You're Stupid (May 2005). He also has work published in a professional journal, "The Intangibles of Implementation" appeared in the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS).
In 1977 Cain joined Pillsbury. He served as a director of analysis in its restaurant and foods group. Next Cain managed 400 restaurants in the Philadelphia area for Pillsbury. Under Cain's command, his region took just three years to leap from the least profitable for Burger King, to the most profitable. Cain's managerial prowess vaulted him into the role as President and CEO of another Pillsbury subsidiary, Godfather's Pizza. He served there until 1996.
Herman Cain's next stint came as the CEO of the National Restaurant Association trade group. Cain also became a member of the board of directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City in 1992. He served as its chairman from January 1995 to August 1996
Cain was a 1996 recipient of the Horatio Alger Award. The Horatio Alger Award is given to dedicated community leaders who “demonstrate individual initiative and a commitment to excellence; as exemplified by remarkable achievements accomplished through honesty, hard work, self-reliance and perseverance over adversity. All potential Members must have a strong commitment to assisting those less fortunate than themselves and be willing to contribute to the mission of providing scholarships for younger generations.”
The Alger Award
Cain’s resume in business is simply remarkable. He served on the board of directors of Aquila, Inc. from 1992 to 2008, and also served as a board member for Nabisco, Whirlpool, Reader's Digest, and AGCO, Inc. Cain’s outstanding communications skills helped him become a rising star in the media. He served as a commentator for Fox Business Channel and also as a syndicated newspaper columnist. Until February 2011, Cain also hosted The Herman Cain Show on Atlanta talk radio station News Talk 750 WSB. It became clear after the turn of the century that Cain has been looking for ways to change the political dialogue in America. In 2009, Cain founded "Hermanator's Intelligent Thinkers Movement" (HITM), which made it a goal to organize 100,000 activists in every congressional district in the United States in support of:
• a strong national defense
• the Fair Tax
• tax cuts
• energy independence
• capping government spending
• restructuring Social Security.

Hillarycare Prededed Obamacare
Though Cain appears to be a political newcomer he actually publicly opposed the 1993/1994 troublesome health care plan of President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton that led to their humiliation in the 1994 off-year elections. As president-elect of the National Restaurant Association, Cain challenged Bill Clinton on the costs of the employer mandate that was contained within that bill. Cain openly criticized its effect on small businesses. And at a town meeting in Kansas City, Mo. Cain asked President Clinton what he (Cain) was supposed to say to the workers he would have to “lay off” because of the cost of the "employer mandate." Clinton responded that there would be plenty of subsidies for small businessmen, but Cain persisted. "Quite honestly, your calculation is inaccurate," he told the president. "In the competitive marketplace it simply doesn't work that way."
Cain has political experience too. In 1996 he served as a senior economic advisor to the Dole/Kemp presidential campaign. Cain briefly ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2000; he said it was more about making political statements than winning the nomination. "George W. Bush was the chosen one. He had the campaign DNA that followers look for," Cain said. However, Cain went on to state, "I believe that I had a better message and I believe that I was the better messenger."
In 2004, Cain ran for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, pursuing the seat that came open with the retirement of Democrat Zell Miller. Cain sought the Republican nomination but finished second to Johnny Isakson in the primary. The is no doubt that Democrats are more afraid of Herman Cain than any other candidate because Cain is everything President Obama isn’t while still an intriguing African American success story. And Dems know their iron grip on 95% of the African American vote would be considerably loosened if Cain's resounding record of achievements became public knowledge. Forget anything any Democratic strategist says about any other candidate. Herman Cain is Barrack Obama’s worst nightmare. Will GOP primary voters grasp the opportunity? Time will tell.

Interesting and qualified candidate. Besides being referred to as an, "Oreo", by brainwashed black political hacks, when do you suppose the lamestream media will attempt to label him as "dumb"? Will the attacks commence after his popularity continues to grows or are they formulating their predictable spin now?

The democrats may find it difficult to call Cain a racist? Last week a black guest on FOX Cable News Network "The Factor", referred to Cain as having made "racist" comments. Perhaps they will call him a racist. Cain's history and rise to the top is a great American story. It would be impossible to say he was born into wealth. I'm guessing they'll find a way to say he's a traitor to his race and that he's not really a black man. The democrats might ask Harry Reid to tell America what a REAL black person is suppose to think, say and believe.
