He could be President Obama's worst nightmare – a business mastermind, a natural problem solver and a black man of "substance" who says he would "take the race card off the table" in a challenge against Obama as the GOP presidential candidate in 2012.
Has Obama met his match?
"We need a realistic candidate to run on the Republican ticket who can beat Barack Obama – not just beat the Democrats," Herman Cain, an Atlanta radio talk-show host, former CEO of Godfather's Pizza and 2004 Senate seeker, told WND. "We've also got to beat Barack Obama."
He added, "Obama is a master of rhetoric. He is a master of deceptive language. And any white candidate who runs against him will be up against the race card. I take the race card off the table."
'Problem solver' in chief?
Cain told WND his experience as a problem solver – and not a politician – is the No. 1 reason he can beat Obama in an election.
"People don't understand the difference," he said. "Barack Obama is an outstanding politician – and that's all! He is not a problem solver."
Who agrees with Mr. Cains observations, who doesn't?
A report out yesterday, on the forced closing of profitable car dealerships operated under the GM Flag, tends to add credibility to Cains claims of Obama not being a problem solver... Many of the GM dealerships were doing well, but forced to close, causing salesmen, mechanics and technicians to lose jobs.. was that a smart busines move,, not really?? I susepct for every job lost in a large operation, there are 2-5 jobs lost in other support busineses..
