Herman Cain’s Conservative Principles Speech Was Best So Far In Prez Race

Let me make myself clear… Herman Cain’s speech at Steve King Conservative Principles Conference was the best speech by anyone in the presidential race thus far.  Every American should listen to it.

Take it from my humble opinion, as I have attended most of the speeches in this early season by all the candidates… You should watch it or at least listen to it.  Herman Cain has a message everyone should hear and this was Herman at his best.

The only thing missing online when you watch is the inspirational patriotic spirit swirling in the room, for me I get goosebumps at home watching it again.  It was evident that people in the room at the time were inspired.

You can watch Mr. Cain’s speech at this CSPAN linke-

(Note: you will have to scroll down to 4th speech in the transcripts area and select the segment that is 24 minutes long.  If someone knows a more direct link please add it to the comment section. Thanks.)

Herman Cain also won the unscientific straw poll at the event.

Maybe this will even move Herman Cain into the seemingly prestigious, yet so far not so comprehensive Des Moines Register’s list of candidates to “watch” in the political section of their website.  Herman Cain was first to formally announce an exploratory committee over a month ago and yet the Register is still “watching” Mike Pence from Indiana who formally announced over a month ago he would not run for president.  So, in my deduction, the Register isn’t taking Herman Cain serious enough… yet, but they will and so will everyone else.  It is just a matter of time.

My time travel prediction is that  Herman Cain will at least “place” by earning either the gold, silver or bronze medal at the Iowa Caucus.  He will go on to be a huge influence and game changer in the race.  I envision him in the next administration somewhere at the top. Which medal will represent him and which candidate will come after him is the unfolding story… here in Iowa.
