I love this guy. The Hermanator, as he's affectionately called, knows what it takes to succeed. I'm not talking about HIS success, but rather, what it would take for America and it's people to succeed. First, he believes strongly in working hard, what he calls "sweat equity."
What is even more exciting about Herman Cain is that there is nothing that has to be hidden. His resume is out in the open. He's transparent. You would not be prevented from seeing his birth records, school and college transcripts, work history, and his Christian values. He sticks to his beliefs. Herman isn't the kind of person that would get into politics and campaigning for office with a finger in the air to see which way the wind is blowing. He just sticks to his creed.
On a video I uploaded to youtube back in March 2010, I have a segment with Herman Cain explaining why employment increases haven't come along with the "improving economy." The problem is because of uncertainty. Watch this:
Herman Cain explains why Socialism doesn't work
I implore you to check out this column, plus two others that I have posted here. It just happens that Joseph Farah started this Hermanator firestorm with his column, "Herman Cain is his name" on Saturday, July 24, 2010. And then, you must read the column that the Hermanator wrote on Monday, July 26, 2010: "Georgia shows: There is hope in the vote." He talks about sweat equity, and then he goes out and sets the example.
Now, in my heart, I know this is the guy that could help us take back America - a transformation that would help ALL Americans have equal opportunity to succeed in life. Obviously, though, the one thing that could hold back any political candidate from deciding to run for an office, and then WIN, is limited resources. However, as I am sure the Hermanator would agree, is that by gaining exposure through the grass roots, necessary financial support would come in for him. So, for now, I'll hope that you spread the word around about Herman Cain. He really could be Obama's worst nightmare! Just sayin'...
Another major influence in his life was Cain's high-school math teacher, Charles S. Johnson.
Johnson told Cain in a southern drawl, "Hummin Cain, you can be whatever you want to be. You might have to work a little harder. You might have to work a little longer."
"I never forgot those words," he said. "As I got older and started to be challenged in the business world, whenever things got tough, I thought about the words of Mr. Johnson, or I thought about the fact that my dad used to work three jobs. That would give me a second wind to confront whatever challenges I needed to take on."'The One' may have met his match in emerging presidential candidate

He could be President Obama's worst nightmare – a business mastermind, a natural problem solver and a black man of "substance" who says he would "take the race card off the table" in a challenge against Obama as the GOP presidential candidate in 2012.
Has Obama met his match?
"We need a realistic candidate to run on the Republican ticket who can beat Barack Obama – not just beat the Democrats," Herman Cain, an Atlanta radio talk-show host, former CEO of Godfather's Pizza and 2004 Senate seeker, told WND. "We've also got to beat Barack Obama."
He added, "Obama is a master of rhetoric. He is a master of deceptive language. And any white candidate who runs against him will be up against the race card. I take the race card off the table."
Cain, a devout Christian, emphasized he is "prayerfully considering" a 2012 bid for the GOP nomination.
"I'm a man of faith, and I do believe in prayerful consideration of something this big," he explained.
In addition to serving as the former president and CEO of Godfather's Pizza for 10 years, Cain, 64, is also former president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association and former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. He's been vice president of Burger King, vice president of Pillsbury Company, a mathematician for the U.S. Department of the Navy and a business analyst for Coca-Cola. He has a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Morehouse College and a master's degree in computer science from Purdue University.
Cain is now president and CEO of The New Voice, a WND columnist, host of "The Herman Cain Show" and an associate Baptist minister at Antioch Baptist Church in Atlanta. He is author of several books, including "They Think You're Stupid."
If he can garner enough support – through contributions, volunteers and heartfelt prayer – Cain believes he may be the man to unseat Obama.
Nicknamed "The Hermanator," Cain has more than 17,000 fans of his Facebook page, 5,000 Twitter fans and 45,000 members in his Intelligent Thinkers Movement. He is urging supporters to sign up for his political-action committee and help raise funds for conservative candidates for the 2010 election. He said support for that effort will help him gauge his backing for a 2012 bid.
"If I can get that kind of encouragement in trying to change Congress, it will be great encouragement in terms of possibly helping me make that decision as to whether or not I can do this," he said. "We're developing a ground game all over this country. We'll have a way to mobilize all of those people."
His supporters have launched a "Draft Herman Cain for President 2012" effort to develop teams of volunteers and build a grass-roots base for a presidential campaign.
"That's been growing like gangbusters," Cain said. "That's the sort of thing I'll be looking at in the next couple of months in making this decision."
