Perry and Cain as presidential resources

Texas Governor Rick Perry and businessman Herman Cain have endorsed former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich for president.

I thought about something over the weekend as I watched coverage of the slugfest between the two Republican presidential frontrunners.

Normally I don’t think much about endorsements.

However, if Gingrich should win the presidency, Perry and Cain would be great resources, not just for the president but for all of us.

Perry has one of the most successful, if not the most successful, records of any governor in the U.S.

Cain is a successful businessman with a background in the private sector.

Cain will need to clarify support of collective bargaining for federal workers

Politics will blow your mind if you cover it long enough. I came across a video at Real Clear Politics featuring Herman Cain meeting with the editorial board of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The editors asked him about collective bargaining. Cain gave some very strange answers, including saying he backs collective bargaining for federal employees "as long as it doesn't create an undue burden on the taxpayers."

If you're a conservative, your mind may be blown. Mine was. Watch the video of Cain talking to the news staffers and you'll see why.

Federal workers' average salaries are already far larger than those in the private sector. I'd be willing to bet that's because of upper level management. Those on the front line probably don't get a fat salary. You could probably delete top positions in a number of agencies. One way you get promoted in government is by supervising more and more employees.

Recruitment bonuses and suspect raises for bureaucrats are standard.

Why would any conservative candidate back collective bargaining for federal workers? Did Cain realize what he was saying?

Gingrich takeaway: ‘If we’re stupid enough to do nothing, we’ll eventually resemble Greece’

The Lincoln-Douglas themed debate between businessman Herman Cain and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich provided an opportunity for Americans to hear more than a 30 second sound bite from a presidential candidate.

Rep. Steve King began the event in The Woodlands, Texas, at the invitation of the Texas Patriots PAC. King gave a presentation that lasted nearly 15 minutes. Some commenters had plenty to say about that online.

Gingrich and Cain square off, Lincoln-Douglas style; C-SPAN will broadcast

Gingrich and Cain will square off on Saturday in a Lincoln-Douglas style debate. C-SPAN will televise the event and stream it live online. [Screen snip, C-SPAN]Presidential contenders Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich will square off in a debate modeled on the legendary Lincoln-Douglas debates, on Saturday, November 5. C-SPAN will broadcast the debate between the businessman and former Speaker of the US House of Representatives. The event runs from 8-9:30 p.m.

The Texas Tea Party Patriots PAC is sponsoring the event.

Many Americans have expressed annoyance with the debate format most status quo events rest on. Thus far, the only event that featured candidates in a manner that permitted an answer longer than a sound bite was Sen. Jim DeMint’s forum.

Leftwing targets Cain, Perry: Sex, lies and no videotape

As the video shows, Obama has often joked about his birth certificate as he did during the White House Correspondents' Dinner in 2010. Obama was received with raucous applause and enthusiasm by the press, most of whose members actively lobbied to get him elected.

A story brewing about Herman Cain and another story about Texas Gov. Rick Perry have nothing to do with each other except for the fact both stories continue a longstanding tradition by Democrat-allied media.

I keep telling conservatives we’re not only battling the leftwing, we’re battling a powerful media machine that has run interference for Democrats all my life.

Schieffer’s freakout over Cain ad typical of big media treatment of GOP candidates

Bob Schieffer interviewed GOP presidential frontrunner Herman Cain on Sunday morning, and even though nothing of substance emerged, salient points were made.

Schieffer, like numerous status quo Republicans, is having a difficult time wrapping his head around Cain’s current frontrunner status.

Frum freaks out over Cain's momentum

Who hasn’t heard the maxim about the definition of insanity? You do the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result.

David Frum, currently a CNN contributor and formerly an assistant to President George W. Bush, penned an opinion piece, ‘Why Herman Cain can’t be president.’

Frum sails through the GOP presidential field, ticking off nominees for various reasons. He admits Texas Governor Rick Perry “can at least claim experience in government,” but Frum insults the governor by saying he “may not be the sharpest pencil in the pack…”
