Herman Cain to Austin: “I am the ‘Dark Horse Candidate’. That’s what is going to separate me.”

Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – “I simply remind people: No, I have not held public office. Most of the people in Washington, D.C., that have this country in a state of crisis, they’ve held political office … ‘How’s that workin’ for you?,’” said Herman Cain earlier this year as he spoke to the Austin Economic Club. “To paraphrase one of my supporters, ‘President Obama may raise a billion dollars, but the people of this country are going to raise some Cain’,” said Cain.

“I believe that my passion, my common sense solutions, and my determination not to be discouraged because I am ‘the dark horse candidate;’ I think all of that is what’s going to separate me,” said Cain.

“I don’t need a billion dollars, because I don’t believe he (President Obama) will be able to buy a 2nd term,” Cain said during his comments to the Austin Economic Club breakfast.

The Tea Party impact on Republican primaries, and in races traditionally held by business-minded Democrats, has proven to be successful boon to Republican candidates up & down the election ballot. In 2010, the Tea Party helped provide the margin of victory to give the GOP control of several state legislatures.

In Texas, where many expected Republican gains in the Texas State House, the added turn-out propelled Republicans to a super-majority 101 out of 150 state House Seats.

Local to Austin, the red wave carried Republican Jason Isaac into office as State Representative in November 2010. The Dripping Springs Republican House member believes the Tea Party message can be the ticket to the White House, especially for Cain.

“Its one that resonates with people that I’ve seen over the past 2 years, that said ‘I’ve never even voted, never been involved in the process, but I’ve got to make a difference or its going to be my kids, their children whose lives are on the line,” said Isaac.

Said Cain, “What we have is a ‘deficiency in leadership’ crisis. First, you’ve got to make sure you’re working on the right problem. Number two, set the right priorities … Immigration is one of the biggest issues that we face. One of the reasons that not much progress has been made, is because every time you hear someone in Washington, D.C. talk about ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform,’ that just means they don’t have any idea how to solve the problem.” 

With Election Day is still more than a year away, and the nation’s economy in prolonged decline, many analysts predict that by the time people go to the polls in November 2012 even further state & local budget cuts, job reductions and additional housing concerns will be setting in.

That could bring another set of angry voters to the ballot box, looking to express their disappointment in the Obama administration’s policies, as well as those of Congress.

Whoever wins this years GOP Presidential Primary nomination will likely face President Obama, who is raising a lot of cash. Obama’s stop in Austin in mid-May reportedly raised $2 million dollars.




    We all make them………………………………………………When we stopped treating children like the Narcissistic Undisciplined begins the are and started thinking they were just little versions of Adults without 20 or 30 years of paying the price for making bad choices we sealed the doom of our civilization.

    Children are NOT miniature ADULTS and CANNOT be expected to make wise choices.
    The ORIGIN of the demise of America can be traced to Benjamin Spock ( Dr. Chaos)

  2. Mike,
    Thanks for the post. I’ve seen those words from a Czech Republic citizen in various forms. Actually, that version is mild compared to some of the treatises that I’ve read. However, I have an aversion to the post and take issue with it although it tickles my ears and the ears of most conservatives. The word’s of Jesus always ring in my head when I hear the word “fool.” Jesus said to call no man a fool because you’ll be in danger of hell fire and damnation. Thus, that part of the letter is not to my liking. Other words can be used for Barack Hussein that are more accurate.

    To chime into what F.R.Sr. said about the common man on the American streets, here’s my two cents. We are living in a time in which the “pop culture” is ruling the roost. Rather than healthy debates and spirited discourses, the current “pop culture” who elected Barack Hussein speaks a different language. They speak in sound bites, texting language, acronyms, and short scathing and caustic statements. Their ability to use common sense and chain thoughts together into logical reasoning seems to escape them. I have three boys and I’m watching carefully how the world is trying to program their minds and hearts. It will bring a parent to tears. Yet, our heavenly Father sees all this and is waiting to step in and help. He is only a prayer away.

  3. Thank you, Mike! I know that I can sleep better, tonight having read that most illuminating post. Unfortunately, it rings all too true. One only has to view the numerous “Man on The Street” interviews, to observe the multitude of uninformed and uneducated people of voting age, that roam our city streets and college campuses. Our youth are more interested in getting high, than obtaining a higher level of understanding. A huge segment of our population are rewarded for not working, taking taxes instead of paying taxes. We have our work cut out for us if this nation is to be saved.

  4. CW, F.R. Sr, and Christian Archer:
    A friend of mine sent this to me. I hope you enjoy it.


    Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic . Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.

    “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama Presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their President. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America .
    Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their President.”

  5. CAIN is definitely scared the $HIT out of the OBUMER and his crowd.
    Looks like another Clarance Thomas attack by the DEMONS.

    LOOKS like CAIN is definitely NOT on the list of people Obama wants to run against .
    GO HERMAN the check is in the mail :)

  6. After, re-reading my post I realized I failed to mention that “Dark Horse” is a metaphor for sneaking up on someone or something.

  7. Robert, are you suggesting Herman Cain wasn’t “Politically Correct”? Anyone with military experience knows, that a stealth attack is best performed in the dark and only a showboat in a parade would ride a white horse. I think the man is pretty darn sharp and not afraid to say what he thinks. He certainly doesn’t need a teleprompter.

  8. Google “Wisconsin Circuit Court” and then enter the name of Cain’s Chief of Staff -Mark J Block (same guy smoking in his ad). Check out his list of convictions. Its as long as your arm.

    Found guilty of election fraud and fined $60,000 among other things – and banned from taking part in elections in Wisconsin for three years.

    This is Cain’s CHIEF OF STAFF!!!

    Do you REALLY think Cain is an honest man?

  9. Curious … Does Cain really want to use that term? “Black horse candidate” ….. Does he even know what the black horse signifies? In terms of religion, the Bible calls the black horse:

    When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”
    — Revelation 6:5-6˄ NIV

    Just another nail, of many, in the coffin of distrust I have for this unknown ….
