    Election '12

    Okay fellas. We've got Obama on the Left. Say what you will about his policies / agenda, he's going to be very tough to beat. By anyone.

    On the Right we have a pretty wide variety of choices.

    Here's the guy who's getting my attention:

    What are the thoughts here?

    The Liberal media will have a witch hunt like they did to Clarence Thomas.

    No doubt about it. They will attempt to crucify anyone who speaks out in opposition to President Obama.

    What I like about Herman Cain is he's conservative at levels that scare the piss out of most mainstream GOP, (God help him if he actually wins), and he's already nullified the Left's most deadly weapon... the Race card.

    It's clear to me that it's either gonna be Herman Cain or another term for President Obama.

    Bottom line.

    He will not be elected,in the "Press" he will be chopped up because he represents too much corporate structure.

    Besides that the coffee and donuts are running out.

    And I like the new term used he won't provide any free ice cream.

    Herman may have problems in the south.

    Obama should be a "shoe in" after brokering a peace deal between Israel and Palestine! He will have his second Nobel Peace Prize by then!

    I'm a registered Democrat but am a middle of the road kind of guy. I've have voted for Republicans in the past if I like their message and views or have done a good job. I would have voted for McCain in 2000 if he were nominated but he sure changed. I am interested to hear what Cain and Huntsman have to say. Forget all the nutbags that the Right have been trotting out. This country doesn't need any more of those make crap up and see what sticks and "Joe The Plumber moments" Obama was right on one thing when he produced the birth certificate, "We have no time for this silliness". We have serious problems and all the talk is about stupid made up nonsense. It's time to do what's right for this country and stop trying to score political points. That goes for both sides of the aisle!
    There's TREACHERY AFOOT!!!

    If he can actually pull it off, then good on him. Well done, Mr. President. He will rightfully deserve all the accolades that will be awarded him. Even re-election.

    Odds are against it.

    He obviously knew Netanyahu's position before the big show for the press! Next year he will overcome all the odds and broker some deal which is non binding and there will be plenty of cameras there too. Fast forward 5 years and katyusha rockets will still be getting fired into Israel.

    That will never happen in my opinion.

    Herman Cain by the way appears to be a conservative and good for him however he does not appear to have the "charisma" to gather the popular vote in my opinion.

    He just doesn't come across that great on TV. I just can't see him gathering a lot of enthusiasm behind his campaign. Thank you, thank you very much
