Skip to comments.Herman Cain to appear on Mike Huckabee show
Posted on 05/21/2011 11:40:54 PM PDT by Kartographer
Last Saturday, Mike Huckabee took himself out of the presidential race on his Fox News show. This Saturday, Tim Pawlenty, who will formally announce his campaign in Iowa on Monday, was a guest on the show.
Next Saturday, it will be Herman Cains turn.
And Cains campaign has high hopes for the appearance.
"It certainly doesn't constitute an endorsement, but we're excited for the opportunity to reach 3 million new viewers with his program," Cain spokeswoman Ellen Carmichael said. "A lot of them are looking for new home when it comes to 2012.

WEATHER ALERT! Batten down the hatches boys! We be in for a HERMANCAIN!
You know, a Palin and Cain combo might not too bad.
As things stand what I’d like to see is a West/Cain ticket.
I could go for that. And what a nightmare that would be for the democRAT party who shamelessly and regularly exploits the millions of blacks who automatically vote democRAT.
Well, look at liberal Politico writing up a positive piece of Cain. The clueless will be obviously to the tactic and others will have no problem with deception as long as it’s for their guy. Cain will be the new McCain - the liberal media’s golden boy.
When Cain gets in the trenches like Palin has for 2.5 years possibly. Conservatives don’t bow just to promises - that’s the barry voters mentality.
From what others are saying about him, he has Republican cred. Not just anti-Obama cred.
We’ll see if Cain is overly copacetic with Huck, or if he’s not afraid to stand out and stand tall.
“You know, a Palin and Cain combo might not too bad.”
Right now, conservatives would be thrilled just to see a candidate whose proposals clearly showed he (or she) understood what they wanted.
To see the bummer in chief Cained and then im-Palined...
Well maybe this conservative is harder to please and demands more - this time I don’t pull a lever for anyone who hasn’t already demonstrated - they aren’t afraid of speaking out loudly against Barry and suffer the media backlash for months and months on end. No guts for backlash - they don’t deserve any glory to sit in the Oval office.
It’s separates the rino’s with their politic speak promises from the Conservative who fights the enemy at every turn.
So far the only one who has fought non stop in the trenches is Sarah. Wusses are a dime a dozen and the GOP are full of them. I don’t want to see a resume where it benefited them and their pockets - I want to see what you already did for Our Country and how you survived enemy attack. Not a person with ‘keep it friendly’ attitude to avoid bad press.
Personally I love Sarah Palin and would be thrilled to see her as the next President — but if it doesn’t happen, if her calculus calculators calculate that it’s unwise to even run, well I don’t want to be one of the ones who Peroted Mr. Obama back into office.
Republican anything is not saying anything positive.
We have lots of Repubs who make promises and say all the right things. I’m looking for someone saying those things to the enemy loudly and attack them every time they open their mouth - and not to their base in the comfort zone.
No one gets my vote unless they demonstrated they deserve it and not through personal achievements. I always had the right and never exercised it - this time I am. And right now Cain has not shown anything but the opposite, IMO.
Where was he when obamacare was being passed? with his thumb in his mouth like the rest of the GOP keeping a low profile and out of range to be attacked?
I want a fighter - and one who knows they will be attacked for standing up for what is right but does it anyway. That tells me if not about them but our Country!
He agreed with Barry on not releasing the bin laden photos. Imagine that - keep away from the citizens what is their right to see. Personally, I didn’t need to see them but those who wanted to had that right. Cain thinks not.
The fact is he didn’t have to say anything about the photos but that he had no problem speaking out about because he scored points with the left. Not rocket science what many are falling for here. Too impressive by ‘rhetoric’ - like the ‘hope and change’ crowd. Just tickle my ears and you got my vote.
It sounds like to me that you want a Republican phenom, that will fire up the base and crash the Democratic strongholds with a fury unknown since the beginning of human history.
I think you want to live in a time of Republican bliss.
I hate to inform you that there isn’t anybody out there who can meet your standards. What you do need is somebody who is solidly Republican and isn’t just playing to the base.
Forget style. You need sincerity if your country is going to survive.
If I could send you Stephen Harper in a bottle, I would. He’s not flashy, but there is nobody who questions his Conservative cred and, now that he has a majority, he’s going to do many good things.
I quit watching Sunday shows year ago, but if Cain is on today I’ll watch it.
I dont want to be one of the ones who Peroted Mr. Obama back into office.
My days of voting for someone just so I don’t get the opposition is over. Sarah raised the bar on that one - if she decides she won’t run, I still will not vote for anyone who didn’t come up to her standards as a fighter. Because that is what we need to come out of this mess. If not, we are going down anyway - so let barry have it, I could care less.
I’ll only vote a strong fighter because I don’t want to be the one who enabled a wuss to get to the oval office on my back.
You said that you wanted somebody who can punch back, which suggests a certain style of politician.
And I’m saying that that is not what you need.
And I am entitled, as a Freeper, to have my own opinion and you are entitled to be wrong.
And for the record, Stephen Harper survived a good ten year liberal onslaught, at least as bad as Palin was hit with and came out on top without swinging his verbal fists left and right.
One more point.
Don’t accuse anybody you disagree with of being a liberal. It makes you sound like you’re projecting your guilt.
So tell me, are an angry because Barry isn’t living up to what you thought he’d be as president or are you trying to make up for past sins?
The doctor is in, and he’s listening.
Don’t tell me what to do - you liberals are all alike.
I call it like I see it and if you are too thin skinned to be shown on this board what you are - then get lost. I do as I please - I don’t beat to your drum - you are in the wrong place to expect that.
Referring to Bumber Sticker:
Her Man Cain - - -
Something - - - not sure what. . .
I’m hardly thin-skinned, but you certainly aren’t the most pleasent person to chat with, but whatever.
Don’t mistake being a jerk for being assertive.
I ain’t easily intimidated and I don’t back down.
I’m not angry. LOL! That game is overused - but being a slow learner like you are - you don’t know that yet.
Run along - liberals are boring and just another reason you are here - you liberals even bore each other. Empty barrels have no where to go - no one wants them - so they crash anywhere.
Ta ta barrybot. There’s only so much kindness I can show a pathetic mess who needs to control.
If you’re not angry, then you’re a jerk and you are such a fine addition to the ranks of conservatism that I cannot imagine why more aren’t voting that way?!?
I’m not going anywhere. I am very conservative, but I’m simply not a jerk to try and prove it.
It's likely you will be sitting this election out. Voting for the lesser of two evils sucks, but looks what happen when we don't. McCain would have been bad, but Palin would have been astute enough to mitigate some of his damage which wouldn't hold a candle to the trashing Obama has accomplished.
I hope to have some quality to vote for. Barring that, it will be for the "not Obama" candidate.
Then I have to question your knowledge of liberalism.
You do know that its definition is a bit more broad than somebody who disagrees with you, right?
Let’s start there.
I’m finished with you, not starting. I told you that already - but being a slower learner like you are you don’t ‘get it’ and you don’t listen. You are way too needy and too controlling - and boring. Find someone else to be kind to you. I’d did my share.
Aww. That’s too bad.
I could have danced with you, forever.
A word of advice: You're going to need to prove your conservative credentials around here or risk constant argumentation at least and banishment at worst.
This is a rough and tumble place. Thick skin is required. Take note.
Enjoy your stay at Free Republic.
My critical post to you was misdirected.
I withdraw it.
I think my skin is thick enough. I’m not concerned about what another person thinks about me or says to me.
I haven’t said anything unconservative, as I understand conservatism, so I have no understanding as to why anybody thinks I’m a liberal.
If I do get banned for supposedly not being sufficiently conservative, it will likely be done by somebody who is narrow minded and not freedom-minded, not because I was insufficient.
But that is the right of whomever makes that decision and I do respect it, even if I disagree with it.
Yes, I agree. Please see my withdrawal.
No worries. You’ll find I rarely take offense against false accusations.
I know who I am. :)
Republican cred? Code word for....
You're a good FReeper!
That is the best compliment anybody has given me and can give me.
I haven’t heard anybody accuse Cain of being insincere in his stances, so until somebody can dig up credible evidence otherwise, I have to assume he’s sincere.
We have some very good conservatives coming out publicly, like Palin, West, and Cain and others.
We need to support them if we’re going to make a difference.
I think you should know that I agree, Palin/Cain in some configuration is a good idea.
We need to stop tearing anybody down who doesn’t meet the mythological standard, but move the RINO’s along as quickly as possible.
You two children should take a nap, your sniping is starting to bore the adults.
