Herman Cain, Raises Yes He Can, At Tea Party Event

On Saturday at the Fleur de Lis Center in Mandeville, LA, Herman Cain wowed a jammed packed crowd of hundreds of tea party activists. Cain addressed the Northshore Tea Party on a host of important issues, such as the “broke” federal government, the importance of faith in America today and his potential run for the White House in 2012.

If the enthusiastic response at the Northshore Tea Party is any indication of the reaction Cain is receiving from across the nation, the former radio broadcaster and corporate CEO will jump into the wide open race for the Republican nomination.

At the current time, Cain is not an official candidate and is “exploring” the race. He said that he is considering the race because of his concern for his grandchildren and what type of country will await future generations. He quit his radio show to travel across the country and meet with Americans. He has formed a presidential exploratory committee to gauge support and raise funds. In the past few weeks, he has been extremely busy and is in demand as a keynote speaker.

Before speaking to the Northshore Tea Party event, Cain addressed a huge crowd in Madison, Wisconsin. Cain supports the budget cuts announced by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. He believes that decisive action is necessary to prevent the state from becoming “dead broke.” According to Cain, tough decisions are also needed at the federal level, but politicians seldom do the right thing.

It is refreshing to hear from a potential presidential candidate who is not a politician. Cain has spent years in the business world, serving as an executive with the National Restaurant Association and as CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. He believes his skills at turning around failing corporations can be used to change the misguided policies of our federal government. (Read more)
