I'm loving this. It makes up for all the gloating Obama-lovers I was coming across last night and today.

Herman Cain, besides suffering from a severe identity crisis, does not get it, the vacuum he lives in and others thinking like he does is shrinking by the minute, the only way you can expect his views to be the majority and win is far beyond starting a third party, wasn't the bumbling failure of the tea party enough ? he seems very much to be a glutton for punishment.
The verdict is that, exclusion, hate and divisiveness are not what people want to hear from any party, the electorate is turned off by narrow minded utopian thinking that really does not include everyone, the simple solution is to start their own government, find their own country and make Herman or Rush Limbaugh their king.
The fact supporting that is that the United states is actually becoming a very different place made up of people who do not share 1960's- 80's era conservative world or domestic view of how they think the U.S should think and look, resembling Mayberry or Ward Cleavers neighborhood, where you only see one type of person, thinking and looking the same and anyone else is an outsider.
The real truth is and the handwriting has been on the wall for some time, the time is approaching where this ultra conservative thinking as a party basis and cornerstone will not be able to support or hold a majority position of power at any level, especially the presidency, because the majority of people they will seek to lead will not share those radical views .

Republican turnout was lower this year than for McCain in 08’ because of the weak GOP candidate and the weak message. I’m done supporting moderates and I’m not alone. The GOP is dead to me!

I tend to agree.
The Tea Party was also a voice, that the GOP didn't want to listen to. I believe they thought the Tea Party was a threat to their existence also.
Ironic that the GOP created the tea party to beat Obama. GOP is seriously f'd up.
Not exactly. The Tea party began in outrage of the Bailouts of the banks and TARP. People were highly pissed that their tax dollars were going to the institutions that preyed on them for decades. The problem was, that the shadow walkers saw the rising success of the Tea party movement and hijacked it.edit on 11/8/2012 by Jeremiah65 because: (no reason given)
