    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.

    Here’s a group of people who spent their formative years demonstrating on campuses in the 1960s against corporate greed and war- and hitting the bong pretty hard. And what have they done now that they are in power? They have masterminded incredible transfers of taxpayer dollars to their rich corporate friends.

    Most Americans today are anxious to put party aside and race, for that matter. What we should want to know from Herman Cain is what he wants to do for the future, not what he thinks about politics of the past.

    New York resident Harry Belafonte recently denounced Herman Cain as a “bad apple” as a “false Negro” and as someone “denied intelligence” and “denied a view of history.” If only Herman Cain were a lily-white Stalinist whose regime murdered more people in its first three years in power than Hitler's murdered in its first six.

    Rep. Paul Ryan gives the plan a thumbs-up. Supply-side mentor Art Laffer tells me it would be "far, far better than the current system." And Chris Chocola, president of the free-market Club for Growth, calls it "a truly revolutionary tax reform that would amount to a massive job-creating tax cut on investments, savings and income."

    At a time when the American left is beating its war drums to raise taxes on "the rich", Herman Cain wants to slash their income tax rates to 9 percent.

    Presidential debate nights have been nerve wracking for the GOP since the first of two Reagan-Mondale debates of 1984.

    What to do about Herman Cain? This question goes not to the Republican Party, where "establishment" candidates like Mitt Romney privately dismiss Cain as lacking the experience, gravitas and resources to beat President Barack Obama and then to soundly govern the country.

    The only candidates that matter at this point are Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, and Herman Cain.

    Does Mitt Romney, an elder and former missionary of the Mormon Church, believe he will one day be a god…equal to Jesus…ruling his own planet? Does he agree with Mormon teaching that Jesus and Satan are brothers? That America is the Promised Land where Jesus will return one day to rule from the Garden of Eden, which Mormons believe to be Jackson County, Missouri? And do American voters have the right to know this?

    The day after Herman Cain's dazzling victory in the Florida straw poll, I commented that with Cain as a GOP rock star, liberals who have been so ready to smear President Obama's critics as racist would have to come up with a new shtick. What was I thinking?

    Why wouldn’t Herman Cain be for real? Cain is really running for the presidency of the United States as a Republican. In a hypothetical match up against Obama, Cain really comes in a dead heat against Obama.

    With Sarah Palin and Chris Christie announcing that they really, really, really will not be running for President in 2012, we can settle into focused consideration of the nine Republican candidates who are still in the game.

    This week the media discovered that the smell emanating from lower Manhattan was not a broken sewer line with a hint of patchouli and marijuana but was, in fact, body odor from a left-wing protest...with a hint of patchouli and marijuana.

    I'm a little bit disappointed that Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey is not running for the Republican nomination for president. He was sure to inject another round of excitement into the campaign.

    We live in a democratic country called America where we are given unalienable rights, individual freedoms and liberties to live our lives the way we deem fit. Americans have the freedom to choose what they say, write, their religion and which political party or movement they support: Republican, Democrat, Independent, Tea Party, etc.

    After Herman Cain told Wolf Blitzer that many African Americans have been “brainwashed” into not being open-minded or even considering “a conservative point of view,” he was criticized by Democratic strategist Cornell Belcher on the Anderson Cooper show. (Blitzer had asked Cain why the Republican party was “basically poison” to so many African Americans.)

    Someone told me recently she liked reading my blog but it seemed like everything I wrote about was race. I guess I’m going to live up to that person’s perception today. Admittedly, I write from the perspective of a black woman, so I can’t help notice these type of stories.

    This Gov. Chris Christie. Is he running? Yes, he’s running. No he is not running. Former N.J. Gov. Tom Kean says he's running. Christie's brother says he's not.
