Herman Cain Keynote
Capitol Steps April 14th, 2011
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.
