    Dear John King, Something stinks about this Herman Cain issue... I think Herman Cain and his campain leaked this story, they pointed the finger at Rick Perry, and asked for an apology they did not get, but they are now forgiving Rick Perry ? Whay give's... I think something happen but it stinks bad, he is getting all this money, and all this attention...

      Concerning Herman Cain. have won over a Conservative. Fox News and Herman Cain have played the race card and I will not be associated with it. I don't know whether the man did or didn't do what he is accused of and was settled upon. Herman Cain lacked the wisdom to get out in front of this story and define himself. Stupidity doesn't have a's just stupidity. After Cain's accusation that Perry was responsible for a hunting area name before Perry even had anything to do with it..or for that matter, his family...that was insensitive and I doubt that the Perry Camp leaked anything having to do with color because of bad publicity. Again, Herman played the race card. The area was known by that name many, many years before. The use of his most recent ad, where he compares himself to Clarence Thomas and the hi-tech lynching is only a hype ad to get Conservatives to vote for Herman. No, Herman...I am sorry that the NRA settled, I don't know if you did or didn't do fact, I am inclined to believe you did not. However, the fact that you and your brilliant campaign manager, Mr. Block were not astute enough to define yourself and your position tells me that YOU ARE NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME. BTW...China got its nukes in 1964. That was a very, very bad gaffe.

    We must all remember that these "body-language" experts are still only men, and accurately read a man's expression to tell what he is thinking about as good as a weatherman can accurately predict the weather forecast. No one but God Himself knows the contents of a man's heart, and so to put too much stake into a how a man responds to questions thrown at him at any given moment is a bit foolish.

    First, Perry. He does have the solution and he does have the charisma. King was right about his remark that Obama would replay that in a debate. However, Perry is right in that poor people don't create jobs...except if you the head of a charity...or you want more government officials running welfare. Government employees equate to taxes....just think about that..the taxpayer pays their salaries and we are top heavy with government to the detriment of the private business owners/corporations. We will wind up like Greece. What is it about Obama...does he follow every single failed policy of Europe and apply it here in the USA? Case in point, look at Spain with their green, because of those policies...they are in trouble.

    Payoffs, playing nasty and dirty is the way of politics in Texas.
