I am back at the computer. I made the mistake of spending $25 on some sushi at the hotel across the street, and then come here to find a giant FREE
buffet in the media room.
Anyhow, the "Faith and Freedom Coalition" event was great. The clear crowd favorite, by far was Herman Cain. Second place by applause and standing
ovation would be florida lieutenant governor Jennifer Carroll
. Next candidate in order of
applause was Rick Santorum.
Keep in mind, this was a religious based event and crowd. Oddly, Mitt Romney was given all the time in the world to sign autographs and take photos
and shake hands, but Herman Cain and Ron Paul were both shuffled out quickly, and Herman Cain complained about it as he left.
Herman Cain's 9-9-9 Plan
got a lot of applause, and it seems like a decent plan,
although it seems to me like it would be much more revenue to the government than they currently get?
As for my candidate Ron Paul, I am sorry to say that his message was luke warm. As usual, he said a lot of things the crowd agreed with and commented
on, but his speech started slow with a long story of Isiah from Scripture. It had a point, but it was long and dry and he lost the crowd before he
ever really got started. Later, he gained momentum, but then he tried to exit the stage without meeting any folks in the crowd. When he got turned
around and back to the crowd, he was warm and friendly, but he didn't connect the way Romney or others did.
Uploading Pics now.....stay tuned!
