  1. I’m liking Cain more and more. I was pretty disappointed yesterday when Mark Steyn had a crack at him a couple of days ago. Steyn completely bought the Left’s typical tricks of manipulating the circumstances and taking comments out of context. He’s gone some way to repairing that damage today, but if he’s suckered that easily by the MSM he really needs to look in the mirror. Or read more Ann Coulter.

    Incidentally, the best thing about Cain right now is that the GOP hate him. Because they fear him. It’ll be interesting to see who he nominates as his Running Mate, because I think that could make all the difference.

    • I never saw that. (I’m travelling at the moment).

      Wow, interesting links.

      Cain has flaws, no doubt about it. Even with those flaws, he’s streets ahead of anyone else.

      That the Republican establishment do not like him is the most compelling reason to support him.

      Just as in New Zealand, those establishment scum (Rove, Romney, etc) are the ones who through their gutless compromises have brought us to where we are today, and unless they are smashed, there will be no changes.

  2. I know it’s only an online poll, but 20 points is a huge lead. The establishment Repubs are terrified of Cain getting the nomination. Unlike the rest of the field (and I include people like Perry who, on the surface at least, try to look different from their house-trained competitors) he really *is* different. That’s why people like Rove are attacking him. It’s only going to get worse over the coming months because the establishment Pubs can see and feel the party slipping away from them and the only thing they can do to keep their cozy coalition with the Dems in place is attack.

    I think the biggest concern for Cain is that he’ll run out of money. It isn’t like he can receive donations from the Fakestinians and assorted other terrorists in the middle east, is it?

  3. Gantt, Steyn has become very friendly over the years with Salem Broadcasting talker Hugh Hewitt. Hewitt, in addition to that fault among many, has been a Romney backer — including penning a favourable book back in 2008. I remain concerned over Cain’s sales tax for how it will increase the hated IRS’ powers. Statist’s love that part of Cain, so thus they make issues of other things. They’ love to get rid of Cain but use his ideas. I think you know the drill.

  4. LOL. As far as I know, I’m the only one who has pointed out that the IRS would be empowered beyond what they are now.

    See, it’s the sales tax that would give the IRS the power to do what it can to defeat the black market that exists today in the various states in order to evade sales tax. Even barter today is officially supposed to be reported to the IRS for the purposes of income tax calculations. But they really lack the number of people to adequately track that down. I envision that a number of penny ante will get prosecuted in a terror campaign to get everyone to declare any sale at the risk of being caught up by the IRS. But I’m sure I’m just making a mountain out of a mole hill. After all, nobody ever heard of the IRS enforcement squads until Al Capone whined at how all the G-men and armed enemies in the world couldn’t defeat him; that all it took was an accountant’s pen.

  5. Pascal, I think Levin nailed it yesterday. Introduce a sales tax only if you repeal the 16th Amendment. Broaden the base while at the same time drastically reducing the IRS’ power.

  6. Yes, Levin would be right. But you know that is a big if. IF you get rid of the 16th A, the enforcement language of that amendment would be eliminated. That would erase the Federal government’s blatant abrogation of “innocent until proven guilty” as it is in tax court today.

    I think Levin must have chuckled over the suggestion too. I wonder what one has to smoke to believe that DC will float an amendment to repeal the 16th Amendment. You know that would be required. LOL IOW, I do not think Levin gives much chance to Mr. Cain’s sales tax.

  7. Oops. Levin just gave a cautionary boost to Rick Perry less than a minute ago. “Rick Perry’s has come up with one helluva a proposal endorsed by Steve Forbes.”

  8. Levin’s words here about the Left was priceless “The Libs just LOVE you signing a piece of paper that reads ‘true under penalty of perjury.'”

  9. I wonder if the 9-9-9 plan is the reason Levin is giving Perry a boost. At best, Perry is the “best of the rest” (which isn’t saying a lot). I hope the Pubs rally behind Cain should he win the nomination, not give the DimmoKrauts ammunition like they did when Palin got the nod for VEEP.

  10. I know I will back Cain even given my cautions. But the SKUNCs can never be trusted. Rove is their poster boy IMHO.

    I think I have already related here (or at Crusader Rabbit) the damage to conservatives that Rove engineered on California beginning in 2002.
