    I am confused by the headline, which poses the question...Is Herman Cains strategy working?, What do your own polls say? Or maybe CBS, NYTs, Zogby....etc. Don't the polls illustrate that?

    Cain would be better served if he stuck to selling pizzas. He would be a useless president.

    Working for the far-RIGHT – Yes, because every other candidate on the RIGHT is a politician!! Would it work for the "general election" – NO, because Cain will be up against a "powerful" politician that would end up wiping up the floor using Cain as the mop!!!

    Cain is entertaining – he shows that when he sings about pizza!! He will NEVER be a Barack Obama and he will NEVER beat Obama in a debate nor would he win in 2012!!!

    The "White Folks" love him – he's a spectacle for them and something different. The far-RIGHT also wants to further prove that they are NOT racist; they are doing this by putting a Black man at the top. It would have worked if that "Black man" was serious and had the knowledge of a "Newt Gingrich”, for instance – But he doesn't!! Again, Cain is a spectacle!!

    If Cain was "serious:" about running, he would have long ago introduced his "First Lady." Where is she? I want to see the woman that's behind this so-called Great Man??? His excuse as to why she's NOT out there is ridiculous!!

    Obama 2012

    Sure it's working. Because the Republican voter has proven itself to be as dumb as dirt.

    Oh! Cain, you are making the 2012 horse race quite interesting. Keep it up!

    Kids have a hard time concealing the truth. Look at the way the kid in the picture is looking at Mr Cain. Contempt! Contempt, I tell ya. Now look at the gentleman above the kid looking at him with contempt. I don't think they love him as much as he or they let on. No more 9-9-9? No more campaign flagship. Seems that whenever Herb Cain got outside the dollars and cents realm of his expertise, his fitness as a president ran afoul with reality.

    The dumber Cain looks, the more the baggers love him. Look at how "W" appealed to the uneducated.

    Herb needs publicity, whether it is good or bad does not matter.

    It might be working for now but aren't his number dropping? It's been three weeks. Probably the one clown of the teapublikan party that has lasted this long.

    Of course it is working. Just look at the Republican field. What choice do Republican voters have? A smart Republican-In-Name-Only (Romney) or a dumb Republican-in-every-sense (Perry)?

    Herman Cain Strategy is working 999%

    “I am America” song best choice made by Herman Cain, Tea Party members won’t vote for Mitt Romney they decided Mitt Romney is not their candidate.

    It's working as far as providing " the joke of the day ". He will never be nominated.

    I wonder if the teavangelicals will really support shifty Mittens. (say that fast three times) America can only lose if any of these republicans are elected.
