Herman Cain's article in 2008 supporting TARP and chastising free marketers. Here are a few excerpts:
"Wake up people! Owning a part of the major banks in America is not a bad thing. We could make a profit while solving a problem."
"But the mainstream media and the free market purists want you to believe that this is the end of capitalism as we know it. It is not for several reasons that they h...ave conveniently not explained."
Oh, My! Fox News is thanking their lucky stars for the FL straw poll and this new poll so that they can once again marginalize Ron Paul. I could just see the producers, editors and commentators all breathing a collective sigh of relief that they could almost legitimately move someone else into the top tier to replace fallen Michele Bachmann. I literally laughed out loud when I saw the headline!
Here is the drivel if you care to read:
editor of the EconomicPolicyJournal blog and part of the Ron Paul SuperPac committee.
This should go viral for obvious reasons....
Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain makes it clear in his new book that Texas Rep. Ron Paul’s supporters annoy him with their “stupid” questions about the Federal Reserve.
Cain, the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO, writes that Paul’s supporters are “threatened by me” and are “trying to destroy me on the fact that I was once affiliated with” the Federal Reserve.
Cain was chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City in 1995 and 1996.

My 9-9-9 personal pLan pizza is to contribute $99.90 to the campaign every day from tonight (seen above) to September 30th. That'll be just shy of $700 over 7 days.
Here's a portion of a blog post @ http://4libertysake.com/2011/09/23/shafting-the-polls-and-tr...
At first, I just wrote the idea of a media blackout off as something that every presidential election hears when a candidates not happy with their poll numbers (some still do), but this year is so obvious that I can’t deny it anymore. In fact, Fox News‘ Freedom Watch show isn’t pulling any punches either when it comes to this issue. Judge Andrew Napolitano is just as upset as we are over the issue of the media blackout in regards to presidential candidate Ron Paul.
In light of the recent buzz about Herman Cain and his straw poll victory in Florida, I thought it might be time to update and bump this email I created to explain to my friends why they should support Ron Paul instead of Cain:
I don't usually go in for head to head comparisons. But there seems to be a lot of enthusiasm for Cain from the same people who should be Ron Paul's strongest supporters.
Naturally much of what Cain says sounds good. True, he doesn't have a 30 year voting record backing his statements of belief. But I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.
