For Sooth?    

If you cover anything besides the mainstream press and blogs you would know by now that he graduated college with a mathematics and physics degree. The main stream finds it a hoot to deride him but I'm sure that he has a more powerful background than most of them, and dare I say it, than our not so fearless current leader. And that probably scares the skin pigment out of a lot of dems vying for the black vote in this election.

Herman Cain has a Master’s degree in computer science from Purdue University

He worked as a civilian employee developing fire control systems for ships and fighter planes for the Department of the Navy.

He then returned home to Atlanta and worked as a computer systems analyst for the Coca-Cola Company. After considerable success, he moved to the Pillsbury Company. Within a short period of time, Herman rose to position of Vice President.

Seeking more challenges he became the regional vice president of Pillsbury’s Burger King division.
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.

Herman then 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.

Now lets see your resume anonymous TMZ employee, besides part time water carrier.

This is not a valid evaluation on Herman Cain. He said the moat filled with alligators as a joke a long time ago, com'on. Don't try to take shots at the guy now that he is a serious candidate. If you listen to his policies and what he has to say you will realize it makes a lot of sense and will help this country.

He can do the world a favor and cut his cracked face head off and not be heard again. He is the worst. He need to jump off a ledge into the Atlantic Ocean and never be heard o****ain.

I wish the press would get this pizza thing correct. Willie Theisen, from Omaha , started the Godfather pizza franchise in the 80's. His bar "Wild Willies" located on 84th and L st in Omaha was the beginning of Godfathers. He sold the franchise to Pillsbury for about $ 800 million and Pillsbury proceeded to destroy the original tasty pizza with cheap ingredients. Herman Cain bought the franchise from Pillsbury for a dime on the dollar and the pizza continues to suck. He is not the great innovator they make him out to be. The media again did not do their homework on this story. Herman Cain is a blowhard.

Cain is a psychopath, a lime-lighter who stands before the most ignorant crowd of mentally challenged mutants on the planet and gets them to applaud for his fascist megalomania.

And that is putting it mildly.

I am always surprised by the response that those on the left seem to have especially when they claim to be so tolerant and intelligent. By all accounts Cain has an extraordinary resume, is a good and decent man, has innovative plans for our nation and not just rhetoric and slogans, and apparently has a pretty decent sense of humor. And the best you can come up with to attack him with is you don't like how Godfathers Pizza tastes and that he told a joke which your dim intellect couldn't interpret as a joke? He was not the head chef for Godfather's. He was the financial genius who pulled them back from the brink of bankruptcy. He is not planning on digging a moat, it was a joke built on something your precious President, the community organizer, said. Not to mention the hate filled Racist comments some here have elected to make. TMZ, I would suggest you stick to puff pieces on has been celebrities and leave the drive by slanderous smears to the rest of the "main stream" media.
