The problem with Cain is that he can beat Barack Obama. All of those who voted for Obama out of "white guilt" would have two black men to consider. One who has shown himself to be nothing more than an empty suit controlled by socialist special interests, and the other who has shown himself to be a proven problem solver who can take things down to the baser level and make them run more efficiently.

One is a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat who accepts the stereotype set in place for him. But the other has a spine and a mind that trends conservative.

Since much of this country is tired of the latter, they will trend toward the former.

But the Liberal news media is too content with seeing a black Democrat who will kowtow to the wishes of the massuh. They just want a black man to smile, wave, and shut the heck up. They are afraid of Cain because he is smashing every single stereotype of black men. So now, they have to dust off an old gem and paint black men as sex-hungry predators, which will just feed into the racial stereotyping that we're all trying to get out from under.

Wasn't the Obama era supposed to mark the end of such negative stigma? Wasn't this supposed to be the day when we (all colors, both genders) had arrived? It seems like "race" -- not the Darwinian definition -- is more of a factor in politics and government than it has been in the past 40 years. Why?

As for me, if Cain were running here in Muppet Land, he would be my guy. Perry is way to much of a disingenuous flip-flopper, who already sandbagged one campaign with the help of Glenn Beck. Bachmann, while intelligent and conservative, seems like too much of a loose cannon. Huntsman doesn't seem like he wants it enough. Romney is too centrist. Paul, while his Libertarianism is quite attractive, also seems like a loose cannon.

Gingrich, however, would be my second choice, for his intelligence and unwavering conservatism. But I fear that his addresses to the nation will be more like a lecture from a boring professor. Who knows? I could be wrong.

I urge voters to research Cain. Listen to him -- not the media soundbites -- but his actual words and delivery. See that he genuinely loves the country and has a cohesive plan to put the economy back on track.
