The Herman Cain campaign spent $850 on pizza — from Domino’s

Now to be fair, Godfather’s Pizza has only three outlets in Georgia – two on the coast, and one in Villa Rica.

That said, many are pointing out that in its July spending report, the campaign of GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfathers’, sent out for $850 worth of pizza.

From Domino’s.

Someone nudge the boys and girls in marketing. There’s a TV commercial in that.

***
Now that he’s on top of the polls, Cain now says the arrows he’s plucking out of his back don’t feel so bad. We’re presuming the welcome pain includes these shafts from David Letterman:

Oh no Cain is revealed as a Dominos fan! His chances at the presidency are crushed he will now fade off into history a shamed man. If he had only had an adulterous relationship with an employee in his office or hung out with domestic terrorist he would still be worth in the eyes of the liberal media.

Don’t feel bad for me, BW. The “plot” isn’t working as the media is held at an all time low opinion, and people have been moving away from newspapers, TV news, and magazines to internet based news sources to avoid the bias.

Pathetic.W eak. Unfunny. Boring.

Galloway might have commented on more Solar companies failing and losing all our money. He might have had something to say about the political dilema that Occupy poses for big city governments who want to help the lefites but can’t deal with the destruction and the mess or the incivil language from Pelosi ( republcians want women to die on the floor) or Biden ( failure to pass the jobs bill will cause rapes and murders). He might have even talked about the fact that hte democrats can’t get Obama’s so called jobs bill through a heavily democrat Sentate ( how ugly is THAT dog).

But Galloway never wants to talk about any of these topics.

Dont you have something else to write about? Lets talk about……………….

Obama’s constant campaining on the tax payer dollar.
Obama’s administration in the Fast and Furious that killed Americans
Obama’s 545 million grant to a company in financial stress that went bankrupt and yet another 747 million to Nancy Pelosi’s brother in laws company
Lets talk about Obama and his illegal friends and the hidden adjenda to break the law to keep them here when americans said no
Lets talk about the trillian dollar spending that Obama is doing by way of his democratic donors and friends. Where did that money go again? Not to jobs but to who? Still love the company that got 500 million dollars to update the poor homes with insulation but they only created 5 jobs and did one (1) home. Sure would like to have a job at that company.
We can also talk about the protesters who are really union labor being paid to Sh$t, pp, have sex and do drugs in public claiming they are protesting for for for ??????Dont know and either do they but the democrates love them.

There is so much we can talk about and you want to talk about pizza? Oh my GOD!

Lol. The “liberal” internet sites are way more popular than the conservative sites. Liberal news and opinion websites dominate the top 100 US web sites leaving the conservative sites in the dust.

From Alexa web rankings,

I liked #1 where Christy wanted to be running mates with Cain just for the free pizza.

Heard the real reason Christy decided not to run for president is that he wants to spend more time with his -

Centrist, I worry about you sometimes.

I know Herman Cain. And I know he has a sense of humor — especially when it comes to pizza. He’s giggling all the way to the top of the polls.

We are in the middle of a Republican presidential primary campaign. As part of that, we discuss the Republican candidates. Usually in a serious manner, but sometimes life is worth a chuckle.

Most people can get on board with talking about the interior of GOP politics. Those who aren’t — who can’t tolerate a discussion of which GOP candidate might be better than that one — perhaps should step away until next spring when the fight is settled, and tune in again when the general election campaign has begun.

Once when I was a kid I impetuously ran a fish hook through my palm, the doctor was cautious when he removed it, in an effort to mitigate any further damage. Basically that’s what we face with Iraq, Bush ran in like a bull in a china shop, not much thought, Obama has to be prudent in the way he gets us out, so as to mitigate further damage.

Sometimes this is just to easy. 1. Most were critical of Bush for NOT having enough troops in Iraq. 2. Obama’s withdrawal is…are you sitting down….the Bush withdrawal. All Obama has done is adopt what Bush proposed. You need to know your facts is you want to argue a topic.

interesting how some paint things ‘left’ or ‘right’ and how the label depends first on where they see themselves on the political spectrum and second on whether the agree or disagree with the topic at hand.
For instance, I can’t for the life of me see how a guest worker program to enhance business is a ‘left’ idea — or how demonstrations about government bailouts are ‘left’. And when did it become a ‘right’ leaning idea to reduce individual freedoms by whittling away at the 4th Amendment?

@ Frederick Douglass posted “Bush ran in like a bull in a china shop, not much thought”.

Here are some omitted facts: An authorization by Congress was sought by President George W. Bush soon after his September 12, 2002, statement before the U.N. General Assembly asking for quick action by the Security Council in enforcing the resolutions against Iraq. Passed the House of Representatives on October 10, 2002 (82 Democrats in favor), by a vote of 296-133, and passed the Democratically controlled Senate after midnight early Friday morning, on October 11, 2002, by a vote of 77-23 (29 Democrats in favor).

Maybe, and I haven’t picked sides. But I found it interesting how there was a lot of vitriol pointed at the protesters on Wall Street who were not asking for handouts, but were complaining about the money to the banks.
I, for one, understood the bitter pill that Bush had to swallow to avoid international calamity. If you disagree, I’d suggest you research “collaterized debt obligations” and “credit default swaps” then use your imagination about a world without banks created in a week’s time.
If you don’t want to pursue such an intellectual endeavor (and I can’t blame you if you don’t) read the Michael Lewis book “The Big Short”

And I would add, “the real right’ depends on your perspective. There are those who believe in less government and greater individual freedom who do not think that much of the social agenda of many who see themselves as “the real right”
Reagan was a pretty RIGHTous guy, but he’d be liberal by some of today’s “real right”. Goldwater would be a downright hipster.

Once again, Galloway, nice try.

Yes, we are in the middle of the republican presidential primary. But guess what? There is more going on in the country as listed above by “Jackie”/October 13th, 2011/3:37 pm and “Voting for future”/October 13th, 2011/3:40 pm.

However, you, Galloway, are a head in the sand, far left sympathizer who is unwilling to bring up any issues that illuminates the hypocrisy, foolishness, or boneheaded decisions on “your” side of the political spectrum.

But then again, your blog isn’t really about the truth. Nope, the AJC is only paying you to get hits on the site to increase potential ad revenues. That’s what it’s all about, right, Galloway?

And yes, Herman Cain can take a joke, as opposed to those on the left – especially our current president.

I was opposed to the Iraq invasion – until the impassioned speech/ slide presentation by (black) General Colin Powell showing all of the Iraqi installations where there were suspected weapons of mass destruction including nuclear ones. (Only biological ones were found – if there were nuclear parts – they went somewhere else)

In retrospect – IMO the invasion was a mistake – BUT that in RETROSPECT. There are those who say it was still worthwhile as Al Qaeda came to the party and we fought them on foreign soil, and we staged our fight against the Taliban in Afghanistan. I don’t give a rip about either of those countries – feel sorry for their residents trapped there – but we simply can’t solve the problems of the world. (Similar feelings for Latinos who would like to sneak into our country and have the many welfare services our TAXPAYERS offer our CITIZENS).

Would the slide show have been any less compelling if it had been delivered by a white general? About 5,000 grieving families probably wish now they’d never heard the name Dubya, and millions of unemployed American workers do too.

No about the white general – just threw that in for some possible leftist credibility. “General” is not as respected by the left as it is by the right.

Once again you put this all on “Dubya” like the good liberal you are. The Democratically controlled Senate went along as did a large bi-partisan group of House Democrats. If it had gone better, you and those Democrats would be taking credit. Leaders lead with the information they have at the time. Quibblers wait for the results to see if they are for or against.
