Herman Cain signs book deal

(CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, whose numbers are slowly reaching the double digits in polls measuring support, will publish a book detailing his life and career as the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza.

The memoir, titled "Who is Herman Cain?" is set to release in October by Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, and intends to highlight the businessman's work in the restaurant industry.

"The recent Republican debate in New Hampshire introduced Herman Cain as a Presidential candidate, yet little is known about his impressive background," said a statement released by the publisher. "A proud 'outsider' in the political arena, Cain created his name in corporate America rather than on Capitol Hill, through four decades spent revitalizing business in the private sector."

    Who is Herman Cain?

    The man who will be getting my vote, for sure.
    Further proof of Party ideology, and limited if not non-existent choices over substance.

    So there you have it, folks: All you have to do in this country to make a pile of money is be willing to travel around shooting your mouth off, complaining about President Obama, never offering any solutions that aren't proven failures (i.e., tax cuts for the wealthy) – and whining about "the media" whenever you get caught lying and/or staying stupid/hypocritical things. Oh, and don't forget to angle for a book deal and guest spots on Fox.

    In other words, act like a Republican "presidential candidate."

    AmericaFirst: President Obama's economic policies are what kept our country from going into a full-blown economic Depression, the likes of which we haven't seen since 1929.

    BTW, it was Republican economic policies – and their insistence that trickle-down economics and tax cuts for the rich, which are PROVEN FAILURES – that brought not only ours but the world economy to its knees, that got us into this mess.

    If you can't see that, then you need some serious help.

    Bad timing Herman! Should have had this out earlier. Could have informed people better AND made more money doing it. Too bad Herman wasn't America's first black president. We wouldn't be in the mess we're in right now.

    "Further proof of Party ideology, and limited if not non-existent choices over substance."

    Really? Really???

    This man made himself a successful businessman through blood, sweat, and tears and immeasurable hard work, despite coming from an era where, as a black man, the deck was unquestionably stacked against him. His reward is to be called an "uncle Tom" and "token" by those of a different political ideololgy? How sad. And you say lack of substance? Please.
