Herman Cain At Rally Tomorrow April 14, 2011

Herman Cain Keynote

Capitol Steps April 14th, 2011
12 Noon

Writer, Speaker, Presidential contender and conservative businessman Herman Cain is scheduled to speak as keynote for a rally and other events sponsored by the Michigan Americans For Prosperity. The one time CEO of Godfather’s pizza is coming to Michigan April 14 to talk to Michiganders at the State Capitol at noon.  Other speakers include Dick Morris, Attorney General Bill Schuette, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson, Rev. Levon Yuille, and Justice Bob Young

Cain has received wide support from activists and conservatives for his strong economic knowledge, and ability to turn failing business around.  It is believed by many, that he could do the same in this country.  From his website:

“… I knew that in order to be successful, I had to start from “the ground up.” This meant broiling hamburgers at Pillsbury’s Burger King division. After nine months of a grueling restaurant experience, I was assigned to lead a low performing region of 450 Burger King restaurants. Within three years, we became the best-performing region in the U.S.

I could have been content with my executive role with one of America’s biggest corporations. Instead, after consulting with my wife, we decided to take one of the biggest risks of our marriage: picking up our young family, relocating yet again and accepting the call to become CEO and President of Godfather’s Pizza, a company teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.

In 14 months, we turned the company around and returned it to profitability, and I ultimately led my management team to a buyout of Godfather’s Pizza. The company never went bankrupt, and today, there are still hundreds of locations across the U.S. …”

Mr. Cain was called upon during a Clinton era town hall discussion of health care and demonstrated the the president, while being able to do math, was clearly unable to consider the dynamics of business, competition,  and cause & effect.

Cain, who is black, prefers not to be called African-American, suggesting the hyphenated American use is hardly appropriate. “I never embraced that concept” He says in this following video. This video offers a view of his experience with racism in the United States as a child.

The water tastes the same. Indeed it does.

A number of videos of Herman Cain are available at his Website

I will be attending this rally and hope to have a video posted with his speech for you within a day or so after.

    Poor Herman … only a couple of hundred showed up for his inspirational address. He should have arrived a day earlier when he’d find thousands–yes, THOUSANDS–at the Capitol. You tea partiers just can’t seem to rouse much of a crowd.

      Yeah.. I know, it sucked. Only 500 or so, because the responsible folks who are on the right side of the fence were taking care of business or working as they should on a weekday at noon.

      My playing hookey cost me more than a few hundred dollars that I know of.

      Glad to know the taxpayer paid union protesters have such a wonderful ‘sick plan’ that allows them to attend such things in full force like they did the day before.

      Yah Mrs. Richardson, you don’t mind me referring to you by your husbands last name do you? You know us little ‘ol TEA Partiers and traditional values; it is what is appropriate.

      But, maybe you’re right about us TEA folk just not able to muster up the crowds. This past November being only our first real go at politicking all we seemed to accomplish is the Governors Office, House Majority, Senate Super Majority, Secretary of State, Attorney General, and Michigan Supreme Court. Oh I almost forgot, we also rescued that big ‘ol gavel from that confused elderly lady with that eye tick thingy in DC too.

      But, those accomplishments above couldn’t have been made possible without Progressives behaving like, well, like Progressives. Thank you for your help. We look forward to your continued support over the next 19 months.

      Good day, Mrs. Richardson

    As Michiganders watch the tea party Republicans dismantle their public schools, public safety departments, close parks, etc. and then watch the tea partyiers themselves protest in favor of lower wages for working people, the tea party rallys are dwindling in numbers.

      Nah.. you would like to spread that trash, but you guys think backward anyhow. Tea Party folks are just fine.
