Tea Party’s Herman Cain Plans To Announce Presidential Campaign


Businessman Herman Cain Set To Join 2012 GOP Race

Businessman, author, talk radio show host and tea party representative Herman Cain is preparing to make his run for 2nd Black United States president official.

According to reports, Cain will announce his candidacy at a rally in Atlanta, GA on Saturday.

Cain’s announcement will come as no surprise.

In previous reports, for months the 65-year-old has been vocal in his criticism of President Obama, and his interest in replacing him as U.S. president.

“Now people are over this first black President thing,” the former part owner of Godfather Pizza said in March. “But there are some people who will say, ‘I’m not going to vote for another black guy because this one didn’t work out.’

“And my response is, ‘Well, what about those 43 white guys you put in there? How did they work out?’

“Don’t condemn me because the first black one was bad.”

The “Hermanator,” as he’s called in his political campaigns, has never held elected office.

In a previous campaign attempt, he lost a three-way Republican U.S. Senate primary bid in Georgia in 2004 with a quarter of the vote.

Cain would be a long-shot to win the presidential election, but seems to be a crowd favorite in the GOP race for president.

    Herman Cain seems to be the most honest and from what I can gather the most intelligent candidate. He certainly knows how to handle money and finances. I have heard people say that they don’t like his answers on what to do about the war in Afghanistan because he doesn’t have a plan. I think his answer is the best one he could have given. It only makes sense for him to wait until he access to all the classified info and so forth before he can formulate a plan. Once again this shows his honesty. He could have given answers that some folks might want to hear but he answered honestly. I am sure that he would surround himself with military experts and leaders and develope a plan which would be suited on sound advice and factual information.
    I would love to see this man as the candidate for the Republican party. He’s got sense, he has morals, he has a lot of pride in being an America and I believe he would make a great leader for Americans, not just the black population or the whites, or Hispanics, etc but for all. “Liberty and justice for all” as our pledge of allegiance says.
    Carry on Herman and good luck in the race.
