    Looks like Herman Cain has taken the lead over Obama in the polls for the first time which is a milestone because Cain isn't even a politician. Rassmussen has him leading over Obama and Zogby has Cain now leading over Romney by a whopping margin of 45% to 21% and over Perry 45% to 7%. That is a complete blowout. Romney is faultering because Cain is hammering him comparing his Romneycare to Obamacare which is right.


    Also, apparently his 9-9-9 Economic Plan is resonating with voters as well as him wanting to 'Electrify' illegal wetbacks at the border fence when trying to enter illegally into the U.S.. I approve of that profusely as well as him reinstating President Eisenhowers once used government program called 'Operation Wetback' on a larger scale if he becomes president. 100% American purity should be preserved and not multi culturalism due to illegal immigrants.

    People like his ideas...I agree the guy has some good idea's, but since this is the best we have it doesn't give me much hope for the future. (Me and you would agree with this) Not to say that I don't think Cain isn't intelligent and I will likely support him strongly over Obongo.

    Cain is our best choice as of now.

    When Herman Cain first revealed his "9-9-9" tax plan, it sparked instant speculation that the former pizza chain executive might have been applying pizza marketing techniques to his campaign for president.

    But then the Huffington Post’s Amanda Terkel discovered another possible inspiration: The video game SimCity4.

    The game allows players to create virtual cities and build the rules for their virtual societies. The default tax plan bears a striking resemblance to Cain’s 9-9-9 plan: a 9% housing tax, a 9% commercial tax and a 9% industrial tax. (Cain’s plan would impose a 9% personal income tax, a 9% business tax and a 9% sales tax.)

    The similarity was met with enthusiasm by the game’s maker, Electronic Arts, which is now offering it at a special sale price of $9.99, Terkel reported Monday.

    EA also put out a video that features Sim-style versions of Cain, President Obama, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

    “Your 9-9-9 plan? Not so fast, Mr. Cain,” it says. “… the 9-9-9 is a video game plan.”

    Asked at a campaign stop last week if the 9-9-9 idea came from the SimCity game, Cain called the assertion a “lie” and used the opportunity to hit on what has become his new favorite talking point — that his front-runner status has made him the victim of unfair media attention.

    “It’s an original idea,” he said. “…That’s the difference when you become one and two in the polls. People make up stuff. That is a lie. And I’m not going to take it back.”

    This is not the first time that a Cain reference has been traced back to the world of popular culture. In closing remarks at an August debate, Cain used a quote that he attributed to a poet, but that actually came from the theme song of the film “Pokemon: The Movie 2000.”

    “A poet once said, ‘life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it’s never easy when there’s so much on the line,’” Cain said. That line actually came from disco artist Donna Summer, who recorded it in a song, “The Power of One,” for the Pokemon movie, which was released in 1999.

    How did it happen??? The people like him and believe in him. He represents the vision of the center-right and we were hungry for his missive. I hope he wins. If not, then Romney, "as of this post".
