Skip to comments.In spotlight, Herman Cain survives Attacks
Posted on 10/12/2011 4:56:29 AM PDT by BarnacleCenturion
Herman Cain woke up Tuesday to another day of soaring polling numbers, showing him moving into second place behind Mitt Romney and pushing Rick Perry out of the spotlight.
The day ended with the former Godfathers Pizza CEO under attack from his rivals, both on stage and in a series of post-debate press releases meant to tear him down.
But from his new center-stage spot next to Mitt Romney, Cain calmly weathered every jab from them, the moderators and even the Democrats, walking out from the Dartmouth auditorium having done little to hurt his standing.

Don't think it's possible? Think again. Just ask Harry Reid about being unpopular and getting re-elected.
He is the ONLY person on that stage I would like to see advance
Cain/Gingrich would be awesome
Sarah Palin as Energy Secretary
Ann Coulter as Press Secretary.
Thomas Sowell: Economics
Walter Williams: Education
Ted Nugent- Sec. of Defense.
And from what I saw this a.m., Fox is in the tank for Romney?
Actually Cain will beat him like a Red Headed stepchild. Reid was in NV and the Country Club destroyed the Tea Party candidate.
Pray for America
There you go again.
As a former Palin-supporter, I’m disgusted with this crew.
I was leaning towards Cain, but after his statement about Alan Greenspan was disappointing.
After each debate, Newt has always done the best (in my opinion). He’s done some really sucky things but, I’m leaning towards voting for him - installing a conservative Senate & House and holding his feet to the fire.
That’s my thought today. ABR (Anybody but Romney)
I like him but I think he is ignorant about governance, and it bugs me that he's dismissive about others-- except Romney.
I think Ron Paul stuck him pretty good a couple of times.
Lucky for him the viewing audience was nil. I don't know if it was the football game, baseball game or folks just couldn't find the Doomberg channel.
Yep...Newt has my attention overall...and he’s rising as I suspected he might. Just too many who haven’t a clue otherwise. He can hit the ground running and not have to determine the political layout before he acts.
I think Santorum destroyed his idea for a national sales tax, and Bachmann make a joke out of it with her 999-666 comment as well as whoever said the comment about thinking it was a pizza deal.
I think Cain took major damage last night. He’s not done for, but it took 3 debates to destroy Perry, and it will probably take 3 to destroy Cain. It’s a shame that Bachmann and Santorum can’t use their sharp tounges to destroy Romney before they exit the stage forever.
Video of last night’s debate:
cain answer about alan greenspan was HORRIBLE! Greenspan was one of the chief architect of bubbles and the destruction of US economy. Greenspan pretend to be a capitalist while he micromanage the interest rate for the economy like your typical central planner
The MSM is attacking Cain let and right this morning. No idea what you are talking about ~ give us some REFERENCES.
Drudge Headline yesterday was that Cain was going after Romney.
He might have survived attacks on himself but never delivered on his promise.
Didn’t you feel let down just a little bit? I thnking that was a threat he is never going to carry out.
Santorum at least took it to Romeny a little regarding health care. He seemed the only one to actually score some points against him.
As for Bachmann, what the heck is up with her and Willard?
It's like she's smitten with Mittens.
lol. How about this article? Look all around. It’s Cain, Cain, Cain. They love it, and understandably so.
Don’t forget John Bolton as Secretary of State!
