Former Republican presidential candidate (and Neal Boortz successor) Herman Cain says it’s time for real conservatives to start a third party, according to a YouTube clip getting attention this weekend. Listen here:
“I never thought that I would say this, and this is the first time publicly that I’ve said it: We need a third party to save this country. Not Ron Paul and the Ron Paulites. No. We need a legitimate third party to challenge the current system that we have, because I don’t believe that the Republican Party – although I ran as a Republican, I have been voting Republican for decades — has the ability to rebrand itself against the mainstream media machine that blatantly works to support this president and other liberals, and works, blatantly, to tarnish the brand of what the Republican party stands for.
The former pizza executive figures that it’s possible to link up with a few other people uncomfortable with President Barack Obama:
There are just as many disgruntled Democrats, that would probably be a part of this movement, as there are Republicans who are sick of the political class. So I think it is more viable today than it has ever been.
