Herman Cain Rallies The Tea Party In Wisconsin

Via National Review Online:

As Gov. Scott Walker (R., Wis.) battles the public-sector unions, Cain says Madison has become “ground zero for the rest of the nation.”

“For the last couple of days, America has heard from ten percent of the workforce. It’s now time for them to hear from the [other] 90 percent of the workforce,” Cain told the crowd. “Maybe the ten percent has forgotten that we pay the bills.”

The more I hear of Herman Cain, the more I like his prospects in the 2012 GOP Presidential race.

UPDATE:  Here is a photo of the Tea Party rally crowd today in Madison, WI (h/t – The Other McCain)

  4. I’m a public school teacher in the Kansas City metro. I hate teacher unions. I stand with Scott Walker. I am a proud member of the American Association of Educators, a non-union teacher advocacy association, I get the same benefits as a teacher union in terms of insurance for my classroom, my dues don’t go to the thugs on the left. No political donations or positions stated http://www.aaeteachers.org

    I love Herman Cain, too!

  6. Last I heard, Herman Cain is just a monkey and a minstrel man with an extra layer of black on his black face. The libs rushed right out to keep reporting on Cain fair and balanced. God bless the party of tolerance and hate speech. They are busy preparing for the lynching of Oreo, turncoat, sell out Cain.

  7. Oh girls, I heard it was small and lasted less than half the time it was originally scheduled for. Wah-wah. Next time get the Koch brothers to pay for a bus with some professional clackers like you normally do.

  8. There were many more protesters than Tea Partiers. Didn’t see too many arguments between the two groups. Some signs were hostile. I’ve got photos of signs at http://www.flickr.com/lloydletta.

    Yeah? Looks like you and the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer have one more thing in common.

  10. Counterfail doesn’t seem to understand that the Tea Partiers protesting weren’t bussed in (unlike the anti-democracy demonstrators) aren’t supplemented by the DNC and can’t get doctors to write them fake excuses so they can take time off.

  11. Herman Cain is an absolute treasure, glad to live in his homestate.

  12. Oh Lady_GayWire, maybe it just seemed too calm without the Tea Party’s usual rhetoric about shooting people and stomping on their heads that was missing. It’s really not a conservative/Republican rally without threats of violence and vociferous ignorance.

    Ah the good old days, pre-election.

    Comment by Countervail — February 19, 2011 @ 10:17 pm - February 19, 2011

  13. Counterfail. The only “usual rhetoric about shooting people and stomping on their heads” Was coming from the left.

    But hey, keep on with those lies. Someone will believe them.

    And “Lady Gaywire”? Really? That’s the best you can come up with? No wonder you have to stick to parroting talking points. They’re much better than your original material.

  14. Herman is the real deal. Voted for him when he ran for the senate few years back. There will not be a lot of people that could out smart, out knowledge or out debate him. The man knows his stuff and has the backbone to make his case. A lib/progressive wouldn’t stand a chance. I would pay good money to see him debate Obama – the smug little POTUS would be fully exposed as the FRAUD that he is. Herman/Sarah – now that would be fun!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. #7: “Oh girls, I heard it was small and lasted less than half the time it was originally scheduled for.”

    So, Countervail, what you’re saying is the position of the unions and the Democrats (and the corrupt Dr$ giving out fraudulent sick notes) is so immoral, so indefensible, so disingenuous that all it took was a quick, concentrated burst of Tea Party protesting to confirm that the public is overwhelmingly on the side of Gov. Walker and the taxpayers and that all that’s left to wrap this up is the formality of a vote (which will take place as soon as the pathetic WI Senate Democrats show their worthless faces in town again).

    That must be what you were getting at, right? I certainly hope it is because if it’s not and you are trying to say that the people are standing with the unions and that the Tea Party protest failed…well…we would all just have to take a moment to point and laugh at you (which would eventually subside and leave us with a profound sense of pity).

  16. Considering the Tea Party volunteers are genuine volunteers traveling at their own expense… and not paid Union Thugs and Rent-a-Mobs… it’s pretty impressive that as many showed up as they did.

    So, I am guessing Counterfail and Ample Dogsh-t believe public employees should be able to gouge the taxpayers as deep as they desire, should not have to pay anything for their health care and pensions, and the unions should never be held to any standard of accountability.

    Because this is what the union thugs they support are demonstrating for

  17. I like Cain too, he’s a great communicator and could certainly defeat Obama on that level. Still, I need to know more about him.

    But I bet Democrats are ####ing their pants over the prospect. If Democrats lose just 10% or so more of the black vote to Republicans, they are through. Which is why they constantly demagogue Republicans as racist even while they simultaneously visciously attack any black person who DARES step off the Democrat plantation.

    (Same reason they went so viciously after Palin, they cant have women thinking that they dont need Democrats to take care of them)

    And I suspect a GREAT many more black voters would be willing to vote Republican with a more successful, more accomplished, more inspiring, more competent black candidate than the Democrats have.

    It would eviscerate all Democrats racial arguments, and Obama would have to run on his failed policies and his fascist vision.

  18. Herman Cain/Sarah Palin on the ballot for 2012. First Black President and first Woman Vice President. So much for the racist-mongering/feminist-mongering liberals. Could not beat them. And while liberals go after Sarah Palin as is their want, the Hermanator canl smack them down. Unbeatable!

  19. #9 – And Auntie Bitch, it looks like you and Robert Byrd (D-KKK) sure have something in common as well.

    You both hate blacks and prefer to do your only skills under a sheet.

    Checkmate.

  20. Counterfail also forgets that when it comes to Tea Party rallies, we do our work FOR FREE.

  21. On Mr. Cain: I’ve listened to, and enjoyed his radio shows for a long time, but I’m also not a regular listener due to my work schedule. I don’t believe Mr. Cain will serve as our President, but he will serve as a very forceful, contentious stalking horse.

    Evidence of this will be the void of coverage by the MSM; and the overtly racial attacks by Progressive bloggers.

    My reason for not considering Mr. Cain for the POTUS is his accent. I don’t believe that to be a shallow metric. One of Mrs. Palin’s cited weaknesses is her strong accent, which is not the neutral, even, Blah-American. Mr. Cain’s accent is equally not the neutral, even Blah-American. American voters prefer a candidate who sounds similar to them, that they can understand his or her speech. Americans are simple in that way.

  22. Then how about Congressman (Lt Col.) Allen West?
