Quote Of The Week

“Wall Street didn’t write those failed policies, Wall Street didn’t spend a trillion dollars,”...“Wall Street isn’t asking to spend another $450 billion. It didn’t work with a trillion. It’s not gonna’ work with $450 billion. You can demonstrate all you want on Wall Street. The problem is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!”

Herman Cain suggesting the demonstrators move from Wall Street to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Makes sense to me.

It makes perfect sense... Because you're not a mouth-breathing prog.

I like Cain more and more. :)

Alligator said...

I like Cain too.

O'Reilly said he was concerned that Cain didn't have foreign policy experience. To the notion that he would "hire" foreign policy experts, O'Reilly said, "This is what they said about Obama and the guys he got haven't worked out so well."

O'Reilly is right about Obama, but comparing Cain to Obama is apples to lemons. Obama's basic ideology of life and therefore government, is flawed. I would expect that Cain would get people like Bolton as Secretary of State or Allen West in defense.

Ticker said...

O'Reilly and the rest of the talking heads are all in the bucket for Romney and or Perry. They wish to make this a two man race.
Cain just won another straw poll by the largest margin yet. 56% and that in Bachmann's home state of MN. Perry and Romney were dragging tail at the bottom.
Of course all the talking heads can talk about is how Romney is ahead in NH, uh duh, no surprise there since it is liberal.

All you hear is Cain Cain't and I say Cain CAN. Hide and watch!

Alligator said...

I agree Ticker. The same old same old has not been working. We really need someone fresh from the outside if there is even a chance of effecting some real change in DC. I think people are looking for a straight talker who can explain his ideas and show some light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe its enough to break the "traditional" election mold. I do respect (though don't always agree with) O'Rielly, Krauthammer, etc., but I do think they have tunnel vision based on traditional politics. However, these are not "traditional" political times. The Obama administration, and leftist protesters are making sure of that.

Ticker said...

Have not use for O'Reilly .
Krauthammer on the other hand is probably one of the most intelligent men in America and at least is willing to look at both sides before offering an opinion, unlike the other talking heads on FOX.

Phill Senters said...

NObama promised change...I believe Cain is able to deliver it in spite of all the naysayers. He refuses let the talking heads get away with their BS.

Chuck said...

Brooke, I'm becoming a fan

Alligator, what Cain doesn't have is Obama's naivete

Ticker, I agree about NH. I'm a little unclear as to why being ahead there is a win for the GOP candidate

Ticker, Have not use for O'Reilly .
Krauthammer on the other hand is probably one of the most intelligent men in America and at least is willing to look at both sides before offering an opinion, unlike the other talking heads on FOX.

Agreed, agreed, and agreed

Phill, if only he wasn't such a racist ;)

Z said...

I agree with the quote and I agree with ALligator and Ticker; it feels like O'Reilly and so many other on-air 'conservatives' are more in the bag of the GOP than the Tea Party folks, doesn't it? Especially ROVE, the 'face of the GOP' (in my opinion). YOU could see his disdain for Palin (which I have now, too, by the way) and other less GOP-type conservative candidates when he talks and I'm hoping people aren't swayed by him or O'Reilly, etc.

As for O'Reilly's suggesting Cain can't hire better people than Obama; man, at least he'd 'hire' people who love this country! RIGHT?? That's a START!

cube said...

Cain loves his country, Obama does not. So any lack of foreign experience could be easily made up by the experts.

Let's put O'Reilly on the map... Obama didn't know squat about foreign policy when he got elected. Where was your wise advice then O'Reilly?

Ticker said...

"Ticker, I agree about NH. I'm a little unclear as to why being ahead there is a win for the GOP candidate"

Because it is NH a past winner picker. But because the GOP elities pick it as a winner picker and they want their "lite" to be the winner. They will do all possible to make Cain look weak and tout the numbers of Romney and Perry, the two man race that the elite GOP desires with Romney the winner of course.
They are in for a rude awakening this election season. Too many of us Independents ain't buying the GOP BS this time around and just because it's somebody's turn don't mean crap to us. We are looking for NEW, FRESH ideas, not warmed over crap from the GOP. The Grand Old Party is about the become the Grouch Old Pricks when they get their lunch made and eaten by the "chef" himself. Yes, Cain Can. Cain vs UnAble in 2012.

Chuck said...

Z, at least he'd 'hire' people who love this country!

That's the thing isn't it? Cain seems smart enough to hire the right people IMHO

Cube, I think O'Reilly's doesn't have the ear of the right like he did at one time

Ticker, I think this election is when the Tea Party makes inroads in the RNC

Always On Watch said...

Cain is absolutely correct on this!

Alligator said...

Cain is correct and remember, the chain reaction started with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac which were overseen by Democrats Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. Frank was on national TV just a few months before the collapse saying what a solid investment Fannie Mae was.

There is irony in the attacks on Wall Street and the banking industry, especially consider Nancy Pelosi who says "God bless the protesters" yet her husband is an investment banker and the Pelosis are filthy rich with mansions, vineyards, etc. and she managed to increase her personal welath by 42% while the rest of us are taking cuts.

I am sure if push comes to shove, Mrs. Pelosi and like-minded Democrats are going to find out that they are not holding the leash of these protesters like they think.

cube said...

O'Reilly is too busy sucking up to the left so they will appear on his show.

Chuck said...

AOW, agreed

Alligator, I think the Dems are flirting with disaster with the protesters

Cube, I think he has become an empty suit
