Fast-rising GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO emerging as a strong contender in the Iowa caucuses, blasted President Barack Obama’s leadership abilities in an exclusive Newsmax interview, saying Obama “could not run one Godfather’s pizza restaurant.”
Cain, who has been rising fast in the polls after his impressive showing in last month’s presidential debate in South Carolina, called the president as an indecisive leader who has lost most Americans' confidence. “The president has demonstrated that he lacks leadership in a whole lot of ways [and] could not run a company,” Cain told Newsmax. “And I don’t mean to be disrespectful: He could not run one Godfather’s pizza restaurant.
“Instead of being decisive, he dithers,” Cain said. “Instead of having a management structure where he can entrust to some key people responsibility, he has an organization that is unmanageable. When he added 36 czars to go with the ones he already inherited, that is an unmanageable structure. So nobody knows who’s in charge."
Cain, a conservative talk-show host and a respected voice in management circles, is a turnaround specialist who is credited with saving Godfather’s Pizza from bankruptcy during his tenure as its CEO. Cain also served a stint as chairman of the National Restaurant Association, and was chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City from 1995-1996.

I don't know Cain, so I can't really comment on him. But if he's going to run on the fact that Obama can't run a pizza place and Cain can, well, he might want to re-think that. Because being the president of a country is a little different than slinging pizza... And if his campaign angle is to ride Obama... he may want to rethink that, too. People get tired of the negative REAL quickly.
I can't believe the same people who screamed that Obama had no political experience (even though he was a State Senator and US Senator) are now pushing a pizza guy into the White House... :shk:
It's clear that to some, all that matters is the letter behind the name.edit on 6/3/2011 by Benevolent Heretic because: (no reason given)
He left his executive post to work for Burger King – a Pillsbury subsidiary at the time – managing 400 stores in the Philadelphia area. Under Cain's leadership, his region went from the least profitable for Burger King to the most profitable in three years.
in his 2004 Georgia senate run he said abortion should be illegal even in cases of rape and incest... He accuses Planned Parenthood of being fundamentally racist
Currently Cain is calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. He accuses Planned Parenthood of being fundamentally racist and points to the face that 75% of their organizations are located in black communities.
Planned Parenthood has targeted African-American communities across the country, building large abortion facilities in black neighborhoods. Planned Parenthoods founder, Margaret Sanger, was a proponent of eugenics. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the eugenics movement sought to "improve" the human species and preserve racial "purity" through planned human breeding. Sanger wrote in a letter dated December 10, 1939: "We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten that idea out if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." Sanger wrote the comment as a part of her collaboration in The Negro Project.
The following information shows how a black child is 2.33 more times likely to be killed in the womb than a white child: The CDC Abortion Surveillance Report states that: A: White women have 167 abortions for every 1,000 live births. & B: Black women have 503 abortions for every 1,000 live births. Thus, A child conceived of a black woman has a 33.4 percent chance of being killed in the womb. A child conceived of a white woman has a 14.3 percent chance of being killed in the womb. Thus, A black child is 2.33 times more likely to be killed in the womb than a white child.
