CAIN MEDIA FEVER CATCHING ON IN JAPAN! (Major Japan TV Covers DC Speech: Great Clip) My Translation
FNN News Network, Tokyo (in Japanese, short clip, from original English) ^ | 8 October 2011 | AmericanInTokyo

Posted on 10/08/2011 9:31:17 AM PDT by AmericanInTokyo

The Japanese people are being introduced to Conservative GOP front-runner, candidate Herman Cain for the first time in PRIME TIME NATIONAL TV NEWS REPORTS. Great footage! (at URL stream) (hot link below).

FNN (Fuji News Network) is one of the major, widely-viewed national Japanese TV networks. They sent a Japanese male reporter to the Values Voters event in D.C. and filmed Herman Cain's delivery from the perspective of audience reaction.

Here is a short video clip (following the Japanese announcerette's brief lead introduction as to just who this Herman Cain is). Mentioned was that Cain requisitioned an Obama campaign slogan and made a funny dig at Obama's trademark 2008 catch phrase by saying, "YES WE CAIN!" (Note: "Yes We Can" is WIDELY known among the Japanese people, it will be good for them to finally see this American dissent and contrast with "The Messiah"). There is also a good segment clip of Herman Cain telling the current Wall Street Protesters that, if upset about the lack of jobs, then they ought to get their hides down to D.C. to demonstrate in front of the WHITE HOUSE as Obama and his policies are the prime reason for the current economic calamity in the USA.

HERMAN CAIN CLIP ON JAPANESE NATIONAL PRIME TIME TV NEWS FROM VALUES VOTERS EVENT *HERE*, Stream video by hitting little arrow button right below dynamic photo of Herman at podium. In Original English with Japanese subtitles.

Bottom line from the Japanese prime time news report is that Mr. Herman Cain is fast becoming an American Political Phenomenon within the GOP nomination race and that the race is now shaken up.

In addition to “Yes we Cain” how about “Cain is Able!”?

Well, actually I was going to add that, but it would detract from the message (but OTOH it WOULD drive traffic to the FNN link for most people to have a brief look-see of her) LOL ;-) Yes. indeed. Cute Japanese girl followed by a dynamic, charismatic American man.

You might be one of the few, yes. You do have to know which arrow to hit, right below Cain's photo, on the left. Might depend on your software. Privately Freepmail me here in Japan (where we just had a moderate aftershock 30 minutes ago I might add) if you need hints, rather than open source work- around here on this thread.

Cain continues to rise and has now passed Perry who continues to drop. Next target -- Mittens!

I should be perfectly fair to the Perry-istas here on this thread and alert them and mention they DID show the Governor at the end of the clip, too. However, it was just for about two seconds in duratiion, and they subtitled it in Japanese that Mr. Perry has now slipped to THIRD PLACE in the race behind Cain, who had shown a massive swell in support recently.

Even some of the Cain jokes (at the expense of Obongo) and some of the other plays on words are just starting to make the rounds here in Japan. Such as on conservative Japanese blogs and what not, like this:

旧約聖書「創世記」のカイン(Cain)とアベル(Abel)の争いをもじり、ケインとオバマの対決になれば、Cain and Unable(ケインと無力)の闘いだ、といった冗句も保守派の間で聞こえるらしい。  重要なメッセージをもった好人物だけに、善戦してほしいところだ。

Now that Sarah Palin is officially out of the race, an interesting dynamic that has always been there now fully comes to the fore and must be taken seriously: whoever becomes the nominee
WILL NOT WIN WITHOUT THE TEA PARTY VOTE. Cain remains the only one among the top four who could ENSURE large numbers of Tea Party voters: Romney certainly can’t, Perry, if he continues dropping, will only prove his lack of appeal to the Tea Party, and the RINOs too, if Romney holds the level he’s at,or continues rising. Gingrich’s appeal might grow too and I can’t count him out-— most talking heads, per their predictions 1-2 months ago, had him already
dropped out at this point, yet he still hangs on to

respectability. Romney at this point may be thinking “Hmmmmmm....a Romney/Cain ticket doesn’t sound bad” but that may also be what Gingrich and Perry are thinking.

Thank you. It’s good to read what US news is making its way overseas.

How are the Japanese people responding to Cain and the other Republicans vying for the nomination?

I couldn't agree more. But there are some real deep thinkers in this forum who believe that if you like what you see in the graph you're a Romney supporter. Apparently, if Perry is too liberal for this conservative I want another liberal in Mitt Romney. I just can't understand the logic behind that.

I believe Cain will be the nominee and I believe he will inspire so many both black and white that he will defeat Obama easily.

It’s a little different than hitting the You Tube play arrow icon .

Look for the “play icon” in the lower left hand lower panel.

It took me a few minutes to figure it out too. So use to just hitting the middle of the screen.

Howdy AmericanInTokyo!

Great thread! I like Mr. Cain more every time I see and or hear him. He projects a palpable sense of love of Country.

This will be the first time I will actually be voting FOR someone for POTUS! Sadly I was about two months too young to vote in President Reagan's second landslide.

As an aside: here's the awesome video of the retired Marine singing the Forgotten Verse of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ with Mr. Cain at the beginning. This was June of 2010 and I think the first time I had heard of Mr. Cain. Awesome 1st impression!

Thanks. I found the Windows media Player a little further down on the righthand side. that worked.

I don’t know why the utube type player doesn’t work for me, it starts, shows the woman commentator, then goes dark.

Yes! I’ve been watching the RCP polling data for a while now. If Cain stays the course he is one he will surpass Romney in no time. :-)

Herman “Yes we” Cain will make mincemeat out of President Narcissus in a debate.

Obama will look like an economic illiterate compared to this industry titan.
