While you wait for the numbers, you can listen to Cain’s new music video. Some interesting imagery:

Show me a poll based on previous years’ caucus goers. This is probably one of just registered Republicans. It still gives Cain something to use for PR purposes.

I am sure Congresswoman Michele Bachmann could be first– she was born there, made numerous appearances, as well as her conservative message resonates with voters! Michele Bachmann 2012!

As a fiscal conservative, normally voting republican, the only way to prevent Hilary Clinton from being elected POTUS in 2012 is: For all these wannabe candidates (90% unelectable and unqualified) to decide on a President and Vice-President candidate by Septemeber 2011 and get behind him/her. Instead of “trashing” each other and the party, do some serious trashing on the democrats (which shouldn’t be too difficult). Folks, this may the last chance to stop this wave of entitlement society and socialistic gov’t. As always, this is just my opinion.

dawg-

So Hillary is going to challenge Obama? That would be cool, doubtful but cool. I do like your idea of the candidates picking early a VP, though that knocks out any also rans from consideration.

Oh people, I’m a female and I’d love to see a female president, but that’s just not gonna happen any time soon. So please don’t get behind Michelle at a cost of losing an election. We need to get the Reader in Chief out of office, and we’re not gonna get it done with Michelle Buchmann. There are conservatives, women and men, who believe a woman’s place is at home and there are liberals, or those who vote for them, who are socially conservative and believe a woman comes behind a man – that’s how some Democrats excused voting against Clinton. This is not a time for experiments when you have someone like Barack Obama in office.

The Iowa Caucus is over 8 months away (February). Polls today have extremely little meaning, and even actual results mostly reflect pandering to ethanol interests for name recognition (media) and momentum purposes for real primaries later on. The last Republican nominee (John McCain) skipped the caucus.

Bachmann is energizing the base just like she did the grass roots in 2010. We prayed for Reagan but God is going to give us an American Thatcher.

It’s hard to believe anybody could think Michelle Bachman is qualified to be President. She would be a disaster for the Republican Party if they nominate her, and they won’t. She may win Iowa, but when she gets to New Hampshire where the voters are more than just one issue voters, she will face cold reality.

So if selling bad pizza qualifies you to be president, what would selling good pizza qualify you for?

I’m all for anything that pigeonholes the GOP into a small, reclusive group.

phil c.- we already have one.
diehard- so if being a community organizer qualifies you for president, what does a real private sector job qualify you for?
Mike- What a joke. He is just the token black guy running so the democrats don’t look racist.

See how silly your comments are?

It’s a well-known fact of art history that closed societies and organizations produce noticeably inferior art to that of open societies and inclusive organizations (compare Medieval to Renaissance art for a clear example). Ergo, most of the good artists in this country lean towards the Democratic Party, and that produced for the benefit of Republican candidates, particularly music, is invariably bad.
