The Irony of the Establishment; Picking the Anti-Establishment Candidate
I thought this was a very funny picture, and just about the way it went down. I still cannot understand why conservatives are backing this guy; he is out of his league.
I've yet to get over this, how we as conservatives can be so confused is beyond me. I understand the want to beat the establishment and elect our own candidates, but what I do not understand is why people who feel the same way are believing the establishment media when they tell us who that said strong anti-establishment candidate is.
If you have not noticed, Herman Cain has been on Fox news at least 5 times a week since he has won the Florida 5 straw poll (that numbers is a guess, but likely higher), it was said that it was a protest vote against Rick Perry. The establishment knew who had the best chance to take their guy Romney down the day Rick Perry entered the race. They understood he had a well-oiled national donor base and the record Romney wished he had, at least this election cycle.
Now there is no doubt Perry did not have the best few debates, but considering the man was working in overdrive his first few months, who could really blame him for being tired. Building a campaign for president is not something that is normally done overnight, and for proof of the work it takes we need to look no further than at Herman Cain's campaign.
Cain and Romney had been running for much longer than Perry, and each one of their campaigns had hit bumps in the road, in Cain’s case there is no doubt he was not ready for the scandal he no doubt knew was coming someday. A candidate has to spend a lot of time fundraising if they are to compete through the entire primary, so when Perry got into the race, one could expect he was going to have to add a lot of these fundraiser to an already hectic schedule, on top of all the other campaign appearances. For some reason that none of us can really say, his campaign manager did not think debate preparation was also a needed attribute to any campaign, so they learned that lesson the hard way.Continued on the next page
