Herman Cain has recently shot up in the GOP polls, demonstrating that he could be a threat to President Obama in the general election. With such positioning however, comes increased scrutiny. To that cause, critics have chosen the centerpiece of Cain's message as their attack point: the 999 Tax Plan.
Somewhere in all this dissatisfaction, there may be the germ of a workable idea -- a sharp needle in this haystack of complaints, protests and notions-and-nostrums. It's possible. 'Tis an ill political will that blows no one any good.
Some exciting developments in the Republican presidential race are being ignored by the media. We believe Americans will be excited when they understand the revolutionary nature of these candidate's proposals.
The GOP has become bogged down with careerists, rear view mirror thinkers, and its own establishment of inside the beltway elite.
Nothing could speak more to this problem than establishment attitudes toward the remarkable Herman Cain.

Remember stop, look and listen before you cross the street? Follow this cautionary tale before you swallow the balanced budget language of Presidential candidate and former Governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson and the 9-9-9 tax system of former CEO Herman Cain. Simple slogans can be dangerous.
