A Timely Response
There is no doubt the timing of Herman Cain’s announcement is a direct result of the fierce, vicious , vile, mean, nasty, ugly, cruel, lying, false treatment of Speaker Newt Gingrich by the Republican establishment. The announcement was made at the Palm Beach County GOP Lincoln Day Dinner where Gingrich was the featured speaker.
From the Daily Caller
In a statement at the Palm Beach County Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner, Cain explained why his former competitor was the right choice.
“Three very quick comments,” Cain said. “The founding fathers got it right when they said, ‘We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union’ — but the union is in trouble. The state of the union is not good despite what you heard the other night. That is point number one. It is not good, even though our president has convinced 45-to-50 percent of the people that is. You and I know that it is not. Point number two, we have become a nation of crises. And it is not going to get any better until we solve point number three, which is a crisis of leadership in the White House. That is our other biggest crisis and that is why I am happy to be here tonight because I hereby officially and enthusiastically endorse Newt Gingrich for president of the United States.”
Gingrich Responded, “America’s challenges are too great for mere tinkering around the edges. Just like Herman, who ran his campaign based on big ideas, I am running on bold solutions that will boost job creation, cut bureaucratic red tape, and fundamentally transform Washington. I’m honored to have Herman’s support, and I look forward to working with him to help put the American people back to work.”
Cain and Gingrich have been friends for more than 20 years. In the early 1990’s they worked together to defeat Hillarycare, and as speaker, Gingrich appointed Cain to the National Commission on Economic Growth and Tax Reform (also known as the “Kemp Commission”).
