Does he want the VP slot? Chris Christie's endorsement of Mitt Romney, coupled with his pathetic attempt to distinguish Romneycare from Obamacare, the whole thing stinks. What made Christie an attractive potential candidate is his boldness about speaking the truth. After today's speech, his nose grew to Pinnochioesque proportions, and it is not a good look.
Herman Cain, consequently, looks better and better. He brings the courage and boldness, a sunny optimism that evokes memories of Reagan, and he tells the truth -- consequences be damned. Moreover, his political instincts on the #Occupy Wall Street protests are prescient. While Romney is waiting to see how it all plays out, Herman has called the rabble to account for their lack of personal accountability, their class warfare and their foolishness in understanding that this is Obama's economy: picket him.
I am really looking forward to see how Herman performs in a debate now that he has a target on his back.
Here is what Fox News and the Republican leadership need to understand: everyday conservatives take Herman Cain very seriously, and we have had enough of the elites telling us that he is a not a contender.
