Let the Big Dog eat!
The motto of Wofford Terriers’ (pictured) sports teams is “Let the Big Dog eat!”, and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich looked like the Big Dog eating away at GOP presidential nomination opponents’ leads last Saturday night.
The Speaker’s mastery of foreign policy was equaled only by Former Massachusett’s Governor Mitt Romney, both of whom made clear that they would be willing to take unilateral military action to prevent the Islamist mullahs ruling the terrorist state of Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
Unfortunately for those, like me, that consider it imperative that any President of the United States maintain a credible deterrent and that we have a nominee with a bold jobs plan (like 9-9-9) fit for the depths of the present economic crisis, Herman Cain turns out to be with Ron Paul in publicly and dovishly taking the military option off the table over the issue that could drastically change life on Planet Earth one minute after Iran demonstrates its enty into the world’s Nuclear Club.
Herman Cain endures Beltway economic ignorance and poor legal advice on non-disclosure agreements from The Center Seat on FNC’s Special Report, The Panel segment, on Tuesday
This time, Americans want a man with courage to implement the values and principles that might just save America, rather than a Barbie Doll that gives all the lawyered-up, Beltway-approved “right” answers. Americans are amenable to a normal conversation with non-lawyers rather than a gotcha game.
We know that people with courage and the needed convictions aren’t necessarily those that respond like gold medalists in the perfect-answers-approved-by-peanut-gallery talking heads.
We like, admire and trust Herman Cain. We know that fixing the economy requires courage and Reagan-like principles and polices more than being a non-gaffe geek.
We hate the lawyer, PC, make-a-mistake-and-we’ll-sue-you liberal culture. We loathe it like the plague. We are tired of staying silent with glazed-over eyes as we endure the victimhood of women that heard a bad joke or got flirted with. We are tired of defending lawsuits because of “institutional” racism.
We have been tired for a long time. But now we are tired and poor.
Herman Cain sat in the Center Seat of Special Report’s The Panel on Fox News Channel last Tuesday night. He was cross-examined/ridiculed by Charles Krathammer et al on the regessivity of the sales tax portion of his 9-9-9 (modified 9-0-9 for the poor) Plan.
Reagan’s tax rate cuts that returned America to prosperity were deemed “unrealistic” voodoo economics at this stage of his campaign. Herman Cain sticks another needle in that voodoo doll!
President Ronald Reagan’s voodoo not only passed, but worked. Vice President George H.W. Bush gave up voodoo detection until he rode Reagan’s coattails to office and passed a lobbyist/establishment friendly tax hike that betrayed lip reading.
If only doomsayers had less lives that cats
When even one of this gamecock’s favorite conservative tea partier-friendly website highlight’s surrender to any notion of scrapping the establishment-friendly tax code, we know that the battle to save America remains formidable despite the biggest GOP election victory in over 60 years in 2010.
