Herman Cain: The Real Intellectual Deal

Since a couple of TLC readers have expressed their unequivocal support for Herman Cain for the presidential Republican nomination, I thought it was high time I got to know Mr. Cain a little better.  

And I have to admit I like what I’m discovering.  Mr. Cain has genuine intellectual attainments, unlike the Affirmative Action phony baloney credentials laid upon the undeserving shoulders of the progressive paragon of Ivy League entitlement known as Barack Obama.  

Herman Cain is the Real Deal when it comes to smarts, hard work, definitive accomplishments, business stewardship, proven leadership, and overall integrity. Obama is a moral and mental dwarf in comparison to this man.

Following is a brief synopsis of Herman Cain’s personal background and career qualifications from Wikipedia.  

Cain was born in Memphis, Tennessee on December 13, 1945, the son of Lenora (née Davis) and Luther Cain, Jr.  His mother was a cleaner and his father was a chauffeur. He was raised in Georgia.  He graduated from Morehouse College in 1967 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics and received a Master of Science degree in Computer Science from Purdue University in 1971, while he was also working full-time in Ballistics for the U.S. Department of the Navy.

After completing his Master’s degree from Purdue, Cain left the Department of the Navy and began working for the Coca-Cola Company as a Business Analyst. In 1977, he joined Pillsbury where he rose to the position of Vice President by the early 1980s. He left his executive post to work for Burger King – a Pillsbury subsidiary at the time – managing 400 stores in the Philadelphia area. Under Cain’s leadership, his region went from the least profitable for Burger King to the most profitable in three years. This prompted Pillsbury to appoint him President and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, another of their then-subsidiaries. Within 14 months, Cain had returned Godfather’s to profitability. In 1988, Cain and a group of investors bought Godfather’s from Pillsbury.  Cain continued as CEO until 1996, when he resigned to become CEO of the National Restaurant Association – a trade group and lobby organization for the restaurant industry – where he had previously been chairman concurrently with his role at Godfather’s.

Cain became a member of the Board of Directors to the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City in 1992 and served as its Chairman from January 1995 to August 1996, when he resigned to become active in national politics. Cain was a 1996 recipient of the Horatio Alger Award.

Quite an impressive biography.  And as for his political orientation, well, I think the statement he makes in the following promotional video sort of says it all:

“We don’t need to rewrite the Constitution, we need to re-read the Constitution and enforce the Constitution.”

    Thank you, thank you, Jeanne for featuring Mr. Cain in your blog. Each time I see and hear Mr. Cain on TV…the sincerity and honesty jumps out. He definitely wants this country back on the right track. One of the outstanding elements of Mr. Cain, for me, is that he tells you what he will do to get back on the track…he does not just say “we have to get back on track” …he spells out his plan. The other thing I like about him, is that he does not think he is “GOD”. He will make decisions based on not only his solutions, but assisted by the experts that he will surround himself with as his staff., who represent the “people”.
    I think with Mr. Cain, it is truly back to …..”WE THE PEOPLE…” and not “I”, “ME”, “”Mine”…but “WE” and “TOGETHER”… As Mr. Cain says…”presently….you have all that experience….how is that working out for you???”””
    I will continue to follow Mr. Cain, to see how he grows and develops throughout the campaigning process.
