According to a couple of national polls, which is meaningless unless you're suppose to be winning but you're not, then it becomes kinda important. And Herman Cain, who everyone, including me, gave up for dead but like to see stick around in the GOP Presidential race for entertainment values, has passed Texas governor Rick Perry in two key polling.
And the debate about why is a subject of daily punditry for cable news and talk radio. I don't know if he's for real for not but being labeled in headlines as the "pizza guy" probably isn't going to help long terms. I think the media is simply jazzing him up for the ratings and to sell papers or clicks.
Don't get me wrong. We need to take him seriously. We need to take all (alright, most of them) seriously. His 9-9-9 tax plan is gaining a lot of attention. It's basically a 9% tax rate for corporation, income tax, and national sales tax across the board.
However, I am going to call it now. Romney will become the Republican Party's Presidential candidate to challenge embattled President Barack Obama. It'll be very tight. And I don't know who will win but I'm ready for a change, you know, one that "I" can believe in.
And I don't care who brings me that change. I'm undecided right now.
As for Perry? Dude, he's losing to the pizza guy. It's over. Cain just has to look Presidential, avoid Bachmann moments, and keep talking about his biz experiences.
