Herman Cain Has a Campaign Music Video; The Atlanta radio host wants you to board the Cain train.
By Joyce Jones (Black Entertainment Network)
Posted: 06/01/2011 12:00 PM EDT GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain released a music video Tuesday that extols the qualities that he and his supporters say are the reason he would make a great president and paints a picture of the Tea Party as inclusive and definitely not racist. The video features both black and white conservative supporters and Cain says he was speaking at Tea Party rallies before it was cool.
The Herman Cain Train tells the story of the former Godfathers Pizza CEOs humble beginnings as a son of the South "who was raised the American way. It includes early photographs of the candidate and his family. Country music singer Gary Eaton, who performs the song on the video, encourages listeners to get on board the Herman Cain train.
An African-American woman who appears in the video says that the Tea Party doesnt care about skin color.
When people ask me about the Tea Party, they ask me if its about color, and I say yes it is, its about red, white and blue, she says.
Cain, who has no real political experience aside from a failed Senate bid in 2004 or the fundraising prowess that others in the race for the GOP presidential nomination possess, is nonetheless turning out to be a bit of a star on the campaign trail. He was proclaimed the winner of the partys first primary debate last month and last week polled higher than candidates deemed less of a long shot than he is, such as former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. As one man in the video says, he may not be able to raise a billion dollars like President Obama, but his supporters are going to raise some Cain.
My great, great grandparents were slaves, and now Im running for president of the United States of America, Cain says in the video. Is this a great country or what?

Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama isn't!
I enjoyed the video. He certainly has the right name for the right message.
The White House internals are getting them concerned; not full court press yet, but Herman is starting to register and that is what concerns them within the Office of Communications and the OPA in the West Wing. Any arrogant D.C. intern with a purple T badge would probably leak it to you, over a Starbucks.
The youtube comments seem to be dominated by Paultards.
Dream Ticket: West/Cain.
Wow, who would BET channel support? My money says they stay on the 0bama Plantation.
Well, welcome to the hot 2012 campaign! There will be more of that I am sure.
Yep, the kitchen heat is going to be turned up, no doubt, but I am sure his (Herman's) supporters are up for it.
And remember this oldie but goodie?
Raise Some Cain !!!
You are making my case for me--that this man should have a chance. Your urgency on this is perfect, and showing up here (and in the above posted manner)absolutely, necessarily verifies matters. Cain is on a roll. As they say (and said in WWII), "if you arent taking flak, you are not over the target". Visit again!
Thanks again! ;-)
Bumping to the TOP!!
Ohhh yes I remember that.
#12 here proves the very point I just made right now! ;-)
Could you expound upon that please?
You can’t figure that out for yourself? Stretch yourself.
So it’s a flippant comment that you can’t support. Hatin’ and regurgitatin’. Got it.
