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.

I actually think Perry did OK last night, and I especially liked his closing remarks.
He doesn’t have to win, he just can’t have another performance like that 3rd debate.
9-9-9 makes Cain absolutely unelectable. And rightly so.
—9-9-9 makes Cain absolutely unelectable. And rightly so.—
I disagree. And rightly so.
You know, maybe it’s not perfect, but it is a plan...and that’s a HECK of a lot more than anyone else is putting on the table!
I implore you to think through the notion that your staying home on election day is a good idea. Wouldn’t even Elmer Fudd be better for America than 4 more years of Obama? I get heart palpitations when I hear good Americans say they will stay home instead of vote for Obamas oppostion - whoever it is. This is not your usual election cycle coming up. Our future depends on Obama being thrown out. Sorry to preach....... I just get passionate when it comes to my kid’s future!
Who is your candidate?
You said "...after filing all their deductions under the current tax plan...". Oh my. Where to begin?
Never mind, I don't have the time to bring you up to speed. Before you go and say something foolish like that again, perhaps you ought to first educate yourself on Cain's 9-9-9 plan, and WHAT IT REPLACES...
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 Chicago as the brass section.
Who is your candidate?
Thank you. Reagan's response is very apropos.
Indeed. Newt is the thinking persons candidate and would probably make a really good president.
Cain needs to drop the 999 plan toot sweet. It will be seen by Joe Public as a “scheme”. In 2000, Bush successfully nailed Gore on his “tax scheme” and “lockbox” talk in each debate.
My understanding is that 999 is a transitional system to a fair tax, which would be preferable to any other (IMO).
Tax consumption, not income. And make it COMPLETELY transparent as to what you’re paying. This takes power away from the government and puts it back in the hands of the people.
what? you are now denying Perry grew up on a farm in west Texas?
And it's DOA. He'll never get elected with it.
...and thats a HECK of a lot more than anyone else is putting on the table!
Where did you get that idea? I've been to the candidates websites. They all have plans and proposals on all the major issues.
I gotta give Santorum credit. He was the only one I saw who really went after nein-nein-nein.
“And he is obviously counting on conservatives reluctantly supporting him in the general.”
Mr. Romney is making a false assumption then. He will never get my vote in a general election.....even if it means four more years of the Obamination of Desolation. In my 57 years I have always voted for the Republican POTUS nominee in the general election. However, it wasn’t until Reagans second term that I started to consider myself a Republican...was essentially independent before. I may go back to the independent status again. I demand a social/moral/fiscal/hawkish consevative from the GOP if they want my vote this time. No more party loyalty.
I’m afraid that I have become passe in what I demand.
Wait until he tells them it’s a stepping stone to a 30% consumption tax. Cain has no chance. 9-9-9 makes him unelectable. If the Tea Party makes this mistake, like they did with Christine O’Donnell, and Sharon Angle, then they will reap what they sow.
