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.

Well, I am starting to like this guy the more I learn about him. One thing for sure.... they can't call him ..... anything but a man who knows where he is going.

He is not afraid to call Obama out on things...with the fear of being labeled a racist... although I am sure it will be attempted by at least one of the MSM. Any takers it will be MSNBC?

Fact of the matter is, the GOP has yet ANOTHER business oriented person. That is a Great thing. I just hope the US citizens realize that before it is too late.

The whole Obama "Robin Hood" plan isn't working.... People are turning against his plans and policies everyday...It is nice to see a GOP canidate who isn't afraid of the big bad wolf.

As of now, he is in the top two as my choice. We'll see how things shake out in the next few months though.

Cain is definitely getting interesting.

Actually, I can see Obama running a place like Ci Ci's Pizza... All you can eat, cheap, tasteless and without distinct character or quality that leaves you wondering what you actually just ate.


Welcome to CIIIIIII...CIIIIII's today is free lunch day!!! Just be sure to check your wallet at the door.....

Sounds too much like McCain and appears to be a typo when reading Cain in the headlines. Let's just call him Herman. Then again that raises a whole new set of identity problems .... ha ha ha ha That's the best I can do with a Pee Wee laugh in text.

It's tricky!!!!

Being from Atlanta I like Cain since he had a radio show here and does host fill-ins. He's entertaining and talks sense most of the time. But like many modern conservatives I get seriously turned off by his religious nonsense: griping about no prayer in schools, America is a christian country, etc. If he'd only abandon that incorrect, irrelevant frogwash I'd be pushing hard for his win.

Oh yea. He has all the answers. Let's get him elected so he can fix everything for us. What a joke. Another election cycle and once again we have to read posts from ATSers who STILL haven't figured out that the whole thing is a sham. Remember the mid-terms? Remember the Tea Party? Yea, the GOP and TPers were gonna take control of the House and fix all our problems? What have they done? Well, besides opening wide and going down on the pillar of big banking and big business to repeal some banking reforms and environmental legislation, they haven't done jack. And they won't. And they can't. And frankly they don't want to. When you finally pass on the koolaide you'll come to realize that this whole thing is simply the elite v. the rest of us. Reps, Dems, T-Party they're all in it for --- say it with me now --- themselves and their elite sponsors. This guys is NO different. None of them are. They won't rest until they turn this country into the feudal state that they are busily working toward. If only things were Sesame Street simple, eh?

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.

Actually, BH, it wasn't solely Obama's limited political experience that concerned most of us. It was his complete lack of any private/corporate/ industrial leadership or management experience whatsoever. All he did as a community organizer was to identify groups for handouts in exchange for support, connections and votes etc etc.

I'm still not sure what he actually did as an attorney. Rest assured he did some handy work for Tony Rezko though. Rezko certainly paid him back during Obama's campaigns to the tune of nearly $250,000.

I think it was his vast experience as US Senator that first caught my eye. What was it, a grand total of 154 days?

As for Rezko, he was just buying a politician, is all.

Paul Ryan, Herman Cain, I've never heard of these people before but the left is really mad at them for some indiscernible reason. Sometimes I think the democrats pick the republican candidates and not the republican party themselves.

Frankly, I love to hear Cain speak. He is not afraid of Obama, as so many Republicans are. And that is good, since the MSM has coddled Obama all along.

We need more voices like Cain, Trump, and Palin to expose the fraud in the WH. And Romney came out swinging this week when he announced.

Force Obama to run on his record; there is no way to defend that. Unemployment numbers came out today, they are climbing again, now 9.1%. Where are all the "Green Jobs", Obama? And how aout those "shovel ready" jobs that the stimulus was supposed to fund?

Well, for those like B.H. that will ...maybe not put someone in the best light when they post...

Maybe they should do a little reading on Mr. Cain's background-and then try comparing Obama and him...

I took the liberty of find a good source... for both.

Herman Cain:
en.wikipedia.org...

Barack Obama:
en.wikipedia.org...

I'll just say this... comparing the two men.... what this country NEEDS now is Herman Cain and not Obama.

Obama is a career politician... that we can all agree.

Cain is a career business man type.

For this point in time... the last thing we need is a really good politician.... Look what the whole lot of "really good politicians" has gotten us into today.

I took this excerpt from your Cain link:


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.
.

That is the exact opposite of what Obama has done with to our nation!

Thanks for the links:

He's an Islamaphobe and would discriminate based on religion.
He's against women making their own reproductive choices.

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

He supports the continuation of our dependence on oil and does not support government encouragement of alternative fuels.
He supports DOMA and DADT and is against marriage equality. (real freedom-lover, there)

He supports Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.
He's "Pro-Israel" and sees Iran as a threat to Israel.

Source

No, I'm not very likely to say anything nice about this guy.
I totally disagree with most of his stances on the Issues. He's a typical GOP candidate whose latched onto the Tea Party name to trick the freedom-lovers into voting for someone that would restrict freedoms.

Thanks for the added tidbits BH. Now I like him even more.

So, being pro Israel is wrong? and yes, Iran would like to wipe Israel and its citizens clear off the map. Its the Iranian/Persians who believe that they are the true Aryans of the world. Iran was the Aryan homeland of the Third Reich.

Do a little research on "The Journal of Ancient Iran" and "The Ancient Iran" and who published them. There is an element at play who still has some unfinished business to attend to with regards to Israel and the Jews. These old ties never die. They thrive in the shadows and on statements made like yours.

The thing I like about Cain is that you know where he stands on the issues. You may not agree with all his stances, but he does not say one thing and do another, as Obama did. As for abortion, he is absolutely correct when he states that it is inherently racist. Several studies have proposed and proved that. Obama voted against a ban on partial birth abortion. To me that is the most repulsive thing he has done in the (few) votes he managed to take as senator. I don't expect those who are not parents to understand the feeling of horror of such a procedure. But I don't want to sidetrack the discussion and I don't expect abortion to be a big issue for the election. "It's the economy, stupid".

I love Scalia...my favorite Justice.





And, Cain supports Israel and sees Iran as a threat to them? How could you argue with that statement?

Nicely done. I see where are at. Okay.

But, on this point:

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.


If what he says is correct, than maybe he has a point. Coming from a black male I would say he is very concerned for his community and the future of it's citizens. Wouldn't you?

Some info on P. Parenthood:


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.

My first introduction to Herman Cain was during the first GOP debate a while back. I thought he was very much like Donald Trump in the sense that he would like to run America as America Inc. He's a strange dichotomy with being a fan of Jesus on one hand, yet espousing corporate capitalism (opposite of Christ-like values) on the other.

I think he would be cornered into abandoning one of those angles if he were pressed in a debate. We'll see, I guess. He'll probably be in the next few, at least.

I believe the responsible thing to do is....THOROUGHLY research all candidates prior to voting.
Imo, Cain is more of the same; nothing will change:

Republican Presidential Hopeful Herman Cain Screwed Employees Out of Millions

Not to mention, he used to work for the Federal Reserve; he supported the bailouts; he doesn't think the Federal Reserve needs audited, etc.
