The following was written by Gina Miller. Her opinions don’t necessarily reflect those of ScottFactor.com, but because they’re here, they probably do.

The mainstream media is trying hard to ignore Herman Cain, and I know why.  They fear Mr. Cain, because he is every good thing that Barack Obama is not.  He is the anti-Obama.  The contrast between the two men could not be greater.  Mr. Cain loves God and America.  Obama has demonstrated no love for either, and in fact it could easily be argued that Obama hates this country.  His actions, his policies and his words have only served to tear down our economy, place ever-heavier burdens on our people and businesses and further cement and inflame the glaring divide between the takers and the makers in America. 

When we look at Herman Cain, we see an amazing American.  Mr. Cain’s life story reads like a miraculous tale of inspiration and achievement.  Mr. Cain’s history is one that the media and the Democrats do not want you to hear.  They do not want you to know what a wonderfully successful, brilliant-minded man Mr. Cain is.  He is a marvelously talented business man.  He is gifted by God. 

His story is the American Dream come true.  From his information page at HermanCain.com,

Herman Cain grew up in Atlanta, Georgia with loving parents and little else. His father worked three jobs—as a janitor, a barber and a chauffeur—and his mother was a domestic worker. Even though these jobs required hard work and little glamour, his parents knew this life was better than the dirt farms upon which they grew up. They also knew that this hard work was the key to achieving their American Dreams.

Herman’s parents had two dreams. First, they wanted to own their own house. Secondly, they wanted both of their children to graduate from college. During the segregation era in the Deep South, these aspirations might have seemed lofty, but they knew that if they kept their faith in God, faith in themselves and faith in the greatest country on the Earth, they could achieve.

The first dream was realized in a modest brick house on Albert Street in Atlanta, Georgia. After years of saving from his many jobs, Herman’s father surprised the whole family, even his wife, by purchasing a home for their family. The second dream was realized when Herman graduated from Morehouse College with a degree in mathematics in 1967. His brother, Thurman, would go on to graduate from Morris Brown College.

Inspired by the work ethic and character of his parents, Herman continued his education by earning his Master’s degree in computer science from Purdue University while working full-time developing fire control systems for ships and fighter planes for the Department of the Navy. Though Herman enjoyed using his talents as a civilian employee for the Navy, he gravitated towards the culture of business.” 

Mr. Cain has been a blessing to the business world.  His record of success and achievement is impressive, and that is perhaps an understatement, because it is closer to amazing.  More than once, he has taken lemons and made lemonade, as he moved up in corporate America.  As recounted on his website,

“Herman returned to his home of Atlanta to begin working as a computer systems analyst for the Coca-Cola Company. After considerable success at Coca-Cola, he moved to the Pillsbury Company. Within a short period of time, Herman rose to position of Vice President. Although the comforts of a corner office on the 31st floor of a majestic corporate building seemed satisfying, Herman knew that he needed a challenge.

He became the regional vice president of Pillsbury’s Burger King division. This meant starting from the ‘ground up,’ dodging grease fires and broiling hamburgers. Herman was assigned to lead a low performing region of 450 of their restaurants. Within three years, it became the best performing region in the company.

Energized by overcoming the many obstacles of his job at Burger King, Herman took on the biggest challenge of his career. He accepted the call to become the President and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, a company that was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. In just 14 months, Herman returned Godfather’s to profitability and he led his management team to a buyout of the company.

His professional successes garnered the respect and admiration of industry peers who named him the President of the National Restaurant Association. Under Herman’s administration, the group grew significantly and began to lobby for the interests of America’s restaurateurs and small business owners.” 

I have no doubt that Mr. Cain could apply the same common-sense leadership to the floundering business of the United States.  If the voters were able to keep the House of Representatives and take back the Senate, under President Cain, much of the America-killing damage of the past few administrations could be undone.

The media does not want you to know Mr. Cain.  Even in the Fox News debate from last week, Mr. Cain was given only a small amount of air time, which was a shame.  Fox News appears to be in the same mainstream media camp that wishes to pretend Mr. Cain barely exists.  The fact is that the more patriotic Americans see of Mr. Cain, the more they will like him.

Of all the Republican candidates, Mr. Cain is the single non-politician.  Some people would say that since he has no experience as a politician, he is not qualified to be President.  To that I say, bunk!  He has all the experience needed to run this country like a successful business.

Those who criticize Mr. Cain bring up his time working for the Federal Reserve in Kansas City.  Just because he worked for a short time with that branch of the Federal Reserve does not automatically mean he is globalist Bilderberg-type.  In short, if that’s all there is to criticize about Mr. Cain, I’ll take him in a heartbeat!

Across the range of important issues, he is a rock-solid, limited government conservative.  From national security and support for our military to entitlement reform and illegal immigration, Mr. Cain is on the right side of America.

As I wrote before about Mr. Cain,

“On the issues, he sounds like one of us.  He is for securing our borders and enforcing our immigration laws.  He understands the danger the illegal alien invasion poses for our society in terms of crime, the economy and even Muslim terrorists that take advantage of the porous southern U.S. border to sneak into America.

He is in support of tapping our own oil sources here in the United States to help get us off Middle Eastern oil.  He is for across-the-board tax cuts, reducing capital gains taxes and permanently eliminating the ‘death tax.’  He fully supports our national defense and the need to give our troops the very best training, equipment, technology and infrastructure to help them win.

He knows the serious need to reduce the size and spending of the federal government.  He understands that entitlement programs need to be modernized, and in some cases, eliminated.  He knows unions are out of control and have become little more than political power machines for the Left.

He is for repealing the devilish Obamacare legislation.  One point I wish the Republicans would not push is the ‘repeal and replace’ slogan, and Mr. Cain does say he wants to repeal and replace Obamacare.  I want that garbage repealed—period—not replaced!  Mr. Cain does have some good ideas such as tort reform to reduce frivolous malpractice lawsuits that have driven medical costs sky-high.  I say let’s repeal Obamacare, and go for tort reform and health insurance portability across state lines, for a start, but government is already way too involved in our health care system, and they need to leave it alone.”

As we continue through election season, I pray Mr. Cain will get more and more exposure, and I hope we can see some sensible debates that give more equal coverage to the candidates, although I am not holding my breath for fair and balanced treatment. 

Mr. Cain’s column from Monday published at WorldNetDaily pointed out how the Fox News debate did not serve the American voting public well.  In part, he stated,

“On most of the really important issues, the other candidates and I are not that far apart. We all generally agree on not raising taxes, reducing federal spending and the size of the federal government, and that the current administration has the nation headed in the wrong direction.

The differences in how we would each change that direction is what the public wants to know. But that was not easily apparent due to the way the questions were structured, and the disproportionate amount of time each candidate had on camera in front of a national Fox News audience. Most of the questions were directed at the politicians about what they had done, or not done, or said, or not said in the past to put them on the defensive – or to [pit] them against one another to spice up the exchange.

The fiery exchange set up between Rep. Michele Bachmann and Gov. Tim Pawlenty did not achieve a substantive outcome for the viewers. Both candidates were simply trying to hold their ground against each other over differences they had back in their home state of Minnesota. It was counter-productive.”

Mr. Cain was kinder to the debate questioners than I would have been.  In fact, my husband and I were disgusted with the questioners in general, and Chris Wallace in particular.  I had no interest in seeing a cat fight between the candidates, ginned up by pointless, juvenile questions.  I wanted the candidates to take on the anti-American communist who currently inhabits the White House!

I believe Mr. Cain is the one to take on Barack Obama.  Mr. Cain does not strike me as one who would be fearful of taking it straight to Obama with boldness, and Mr. Cain certainly cannot be labeled as a “racist” for criticizing Obama, since Mr. Cain is a black American.  That is one problem he will not face, and that may very well be part of why the mainstream media fears him and hopes to ignore him out of existence.  They can not smear him with the false accusation of racism that they attempt to pin on any other critic of Obama’s wretched policies.  I love it!

I hope you will carefully study Mr. Cain’s story and positions and consider him for President in 2012.  Here is a godly man, a gift and a breath of fresh air for the American voters—the Hermanator!  God speed Herman Cain!
