The Whole thing is a huge Non Issue.
"Dreaming of success in corporate America (he wanted to be president of
"something ... somewhere," he writes)"Wow, what a
firm, ethical visionary! Doesn't matter what the company I run does, as long as
that paycheck is fat."If you don't have a job and you are not
rich, blame yourself."I guess he won't be campaigning on how
Obama destroyed the economy, then. Because apparently the economy is fine. "Cain has flatly denied wrongdoing, calling the (sexual harassment)
accusations a smear campaign."Then the restaurant association
he chaired at the time sure wasted a bunch of money on those settlements, didn't
You're kidding. Right?
Mark,Let's face it, you have no intention of having a discussion;
you just want to make your points.You are not a Democrat? Then tell
us what party someone with your views belongs to.Your opinion that
Mr. Cain has no clue on foreign policy. What is Mr. Obama's view on foreign
policy?An unworkable tax plan? What is YOUR tax plan? What is Mr.
Obama's tax plan? How is it better than Mr. Cain's?The Chicago sex
scandal? Before passing judgment, please show us a conviction of any
wrong-doing.Knee-jerk reaction to OWS? Do YOU support those
whiners?If you prefer "Little Caesars" over
"Godfathers", then you have my condolences. I stated that
Bill Gates wrote BASIC. YOU inferred that he wrote the original BASIC. I never
stated that. YOU inferred that. Anyone who knows the history of computers knows
that you're picking nits.Now that we've got those points behind us,
why not tell us why Mr. Cain is NOT better than Mr. Obama?
What makes you think I am a Democrat Richards? And why would you ever presume to
tell me what I would, or would not, accept?But no, I do not see what
Herman Cain has to offer as a presidential candidate. He is absolutely clueless
on foreign policy; he has presented an unworkable tax plan; and I think he
handled the harassment scandal terribly, lying and obfuscating his way through
it. I already gave credit to Cain for grabbing hold of
opportunities. But why do you feel a need to just knee-jerk an
attack on the occupy wall street movement? No one was talking about them. And
anyway, many, if not most, of the people that are involved in that movement, or
support it, are hard working Americans. You are really saying
Godfathers Pizza is a premium product? Okay, to each his own.Sure
Gates wrote a BASIC interpreter for Altair. But that is not what you originally
"Yes we Cain", oh boy...But I sincerely hope he is the
republican candidate, and I mean that in a completly sarcastic and undercutting
way that assures 4 more years of "Yes we can".Accomplishments of Obama:Some healthcare reform - a start and
farther than anyone elese has come.Bringing troops home from
Iraq.Got Osama BinLadenSaved "government
motors" that now still employs hundreds of thousands including the supply
chain.Ended don't ask don't tell that will hopefully lead to the
military getting some stinking shower curtains.He's made all the
racists faces in the country turn bright red.He stopped that leak
in the gulf as republicans demanded at the time.No more attacks in
america. Has regulated the banks at least slightly more than
before.I'm sire there's more.
Mark,Bill Gates created BASIC for the Altair and many of the
micro-computers that followed. Mr. Cain saw the possibilities that
were open to him and he used those opportunities. He didn't join some OWS group
that did nothing but complain. He took the opportunities that were available to
him. Yes, sales dropped when people were not willing to buy a
premium product when other loss-cost, low-class products were offered.If you want low-class, then you'll have to look at other parties. Mr. Cain is
top-notch, top-tier; but, you, a democrat, would never accept Mr. Cain no matter
what he had to offer.
And good for him, he used the system to make money, and a lot of it. He was born
poor and became rich through hard work and education. But dont try to lionize
him as a great entrepreneur, he never created a company from the ground up, and
he only ran companies that others had created, usually as an employee. But, yeah, he was part owner and CEO of Godfathers Pizza for a few years after
Pillsbury offered it to him. Nonetheless, sales at Godfathers Pizza
dropped 41% (adjusted for inflation) while he was CEO.
Richards, BASIC was created at Dartmouth College by John Kemeny and Thomas Kurtz
in 1964 (those darn elite tenured college professors).What money of
his own did Cain put into his ventures? After college he worked as a civilian
analyst for the U.S. Navy (oh my gosh, he worked for the dreaded government).
Then he worked for Coke and after that Pillsbury who made him president of their
subsidiary Godfathers Pizza. He was hired by others. None of his own money was
used in these jobs.He was involved in a leveraged (leveraged means
to use borrowed money) buyout of Godfathers in 1988 with a team of senior
management investors. I cant tell you how much of his own money was in this deal
(if any) and neither can you. But we do know that the investment team used large
amounts of debt to purchase the company, and we can imagine Cain would have been
insulated from this debt (the debt would be on the company, not Cain), and
receive a healthy salary for running the company, as well as most likely,
Out of a field of losers, Cain is by far the worst.But wait.
There's Michelle. Okay, she's the worst.Oh, no. There's Perry.
Revise all that.What's that noise? Nothing. Romney just flipped
again.That's it! I just figured it out!The Republican
campaign is a race to the bottom.Tag! You're it!
When people wait around for someone else to "give" them a job, they're
going to be waiting a long time.Bill Gates didn't wait around until
someone hired him to write BASIC. Apple Computer was not founded after the two
Steves had customers pounding at their doors. Look at every
successful businessman and you'll see that he believed in himself even if others
didn't. He trusted his judgment when others held back. He invested his own
money when others saw him as a risk.Mr. Cain is that kind of man.
He is pressing forward regardless of what others say or think or do. We need
that kind of man in the White House.If he makes it on the ballot,
he'll get my vote.
He said to the un-employed, "If you don't have a job, if you are not rich
it is your own fault".Earth to Cain, the United States is in a
period of high un-employment. There are not enough jobs to go around right now.
Your thinking is typical conservative republican. Were people to vote for you,
they would deserve what they got.
At this point I can't for the life of me see why any Republican could take Cain
seriously. But the same can be said for most of the other Republican candidates
as well. Cain was the last clown of the month, Gingrich is this month's
The Republican field has many candidates that lack the depth, the conviction,
the experience, the knowledge and the integrity necessary to lead our
country.Ron Paul is one of the exceptions.
to Cougar Blue | 8:46 a.m. Nov. 27, 2011 N. Las Vegas, NV Cain is
just another in a long line of "jokes" running on the Republican party
wannabee list. He was the "flavor of the month". I wonder who's next?
--------------------Probably Gingrich, and he's even worse
I think he's really neat because he's republican. He can get us back on track.
Wonderful to get insight into this man
Cain is just another in a long line of "jokes" running on the
Republican party wannabee list. He was the "flavor of the month". I
wonder who's next?
Notice how he's not taking any questions, and has yet to dispell the allegations
Cain is a media candidate: Good copy, little substance. He will fizzle and fade
like Bachmann, Perry and similar bottle rockets who are seeking the GOP
I love Herman Cain. I think he's great. He's not ready to be president. Case
Cain is a successful businessman and has brought companies back from the brink.
I would like to see him bring the US back from the cesspool it has ended up in.
This man brings experience, dedication and a lot of a hope. It would also
eliminate any blame of racism on Obama's demise.
To say that Cain would do a better job is ludicrous. Cain would be a lacky for
the powerful. Another Bush Jr that was a mouthpiece for the powerful and
influential....that made tremendous mistakes that have, and will continue, to
cost us dearly.
We have Obama as president now. Even Cain would do a better job.
Cain will make a great president; he has charm, humor and believes in
math-------perhaps we are all too uptight and need someone with those three
Cain appears to be a fairly adept salesman. As we see and hear more from him,
many will suggest that he step aside, and continue in that line of work.
First of all, I don't see how and why this long article about Cain is reprinted
in DN. Cain is NOT for real! That's the answer. This article only serves to try
and resurrect Cain's defunct campaign and to make relevant the irrelevant. And
I don't care about how much money he's raising or where he's at in some polls.
He is essentially DONE! Any relevance left for Cain is also a reflection on the
sad and pathetic state of those people who still support someone who was never
serious from the beginning and who is clearly inept and unqualified to be
president. I'd be more interested in articles on other real candidates. For
Cain, he may already be regretting his decision to run; he's been exposed and
tainted to say the least.
Cain is not able.
