Well, you may remember in late October of 2011, Herman Cain was leading in the Republican Primary race by 24% when the liberal media and those that were behind in the polls came out in their full attack mode. The lives of family members were threatened and Herman Cain was the target of accusations. However, even after the media had a “feeding day” on Herman Cain, he still was in third place in November at 14% when he officially left the race.
Recently on Herman Cain’s website:
Bush tried to reassure disappointed supporters this past Monday, invoking “the fall of Herman Cain”:
Jeb Bush cited the rise and fall of 2012 GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain as he sought to reassure supporters at a Longboat Key fundraiser Monday that their faith in him is well placed.
By noting that Cain led in the polls at this point in 2012 only to flame out, Bush implied that current GOP front-runners Donald Trump and Ben Carson could follow the same path.
Herman Cain had these words for Jeb!:
But there’s a reason I bring up these numbers. At the height of my campaign I was in first place at 24 percent. Even when I left the race I was in third place at 14 place. Who am I? A guy who ran a pizza company and had a successful corporate career before hosting a talk show in Atlanta. I was not anonymous but I was hardly famous.
Who is Jeb Bush? He is the former governor of Florida and he has one of the most famous political last names in America. He has more political money behind him than any candidate in this race with the possible exception of Hillary Clinton. And how is he doing in the polls? The current Real Clear Politics average shows him in fifth place at 5.5 percent.
If you want to say I had a “fall,” go ahead, I guess. You can’t fall when you’ve never gotten any higher than the floor in the first place, and that’s the state of the Jeb Bush campaign. A guy with his name, his money and the team behind him should be one of the top-tier contenders, and he should certainly not be letting Donald Trump wipe the floor with him if Trump is as unserious and unqualified as Bush would have you believe.
And yet, Jeb Bush can’t break out of the middle single-digits. Read more from Cain here.
Herman would have made a great president, but instead the Establishment tried to jam down our throats THEIR candidate and now we have Barack Hussein Obama. If the Establishment continue to believe that “We The People” want their candidate again, or a candidate that “goes along to get along” with the Washington Cartel, then they are really smoking some good ganja.
As for Herman, well he got farther as a pizza franchise owner than Jeb! has gotten with ALL his name recognition and money, and THAT ALONE should tell you something.
On another note, Trump is a smart businessman and has stayed ahead in the polls longer than most thought he ever would, including the Establishment. Maybe people just want to hear the “raw truth” from somebody that will give it to them straight instead of all this political correctness garbage. Or maybe people are just tired of politicians period.
Either way Jeb, as Herman Cain said:
“At least I was once winning. Jeb Bush has been doing nothing but losing throughout this entire campaign. His problem is him!”
Sorry Jeb, but I have to agree with Herman Cain. Jeb is not motivating. He has no energy. He reminds me of someone that’s just in the race, because let’s face it, he has the money and the name, and knows people in high places. But guess what? That’s not good enough.
