Hey, Whoopi: You said on The View you were playing the race card.
You played a puny Barry Obama 2 of Clubs.
I see your 2 and I'm playing a Herman Cain Ace of Clubs.
Lady, you have been trumped!
Herman Cain for President
Cain was born and raised in Georgia by working class parents, That would make him a natural born citizen of the US.
He earned a bachelor's degree in mathematics at Morehouse College in 1967, and while working for the US Department of the Navy, a master's degree in computer science from Purdue University.
After completing his master's degree, Cain left the Department of the Navy and began working for Coca-Cola 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 has been cited as one of the primary opponents of the 1993/1994 health care plan of President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton: The Clintons would later blame "Harry and Louise," the fictional couple in the ads aired by the insurance industry, for undermining health reform. But the real saboteurs are named Herman and John.
Herman Cain is an articulate black entrepreneur, he transformed the debate when he challenged Clinton at a town meeting in Kansas City, Mo., last April.
Cain asked the president what he was supposed to say to the workers he would have to lay off because of the cost of the "employer mandate." Clinton responded that there would be plenty of subsidies for small businessmen, but Cain persisted. "Quite honestly, your calculation is inaccurate," he told the president. "In the competitive marketplace it simply doesn't work that way
Herman Cain announced his support of the gold standard on a radio program in late 2010: "Yes I believe in the gold standard. We should have never gotten off the gold standard because when we got off the gold standard, that then allowed Congress to inflate our currency whenever they overspent. Now look at the mess that we have."
However, in early 2011, Cain stated on his radio show that there was no need for an audit of the Federal Reserve.
In 2010, "Cain addressed more than 40 Tea Party rallies, hit all the early presidential states, and became a YouTube sensation." In April, he teased the audience at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference about his being a possible 2012 presidential candidate by saying that there may be a "dark horse candidate."
On September 24, 2010, Cain announced that he was considering a run for president in 2012 on the Republican Party ticket. "In December, he was the surprise choice for 2012 GOP nominee in a reader poll on the conservative Web site RedState.com, narrowly edging out Palin."
Cain announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee on January 12, 2011 on the Fox News Channel's Your World with Neil Cavuto.
Cain supports a non-federally subsidized efficient economic stimulus, saying:
In February 2011, Cain addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Ed Morrisey of the conservative website Hot Air said he "stole the show" and that some attendees were moved to tears by the speech.
In contrast, liberal website AlterNet accused Cain of pandering to white conservatives and referred to him and other black conservatives as "garbage pail kids". Cain called the news website's attacks racist and condemned its "shameful behavior".
After defending himself against accusations of racism, Cain provoked controversy when he specifically stated that he would be willing to discriminate on grounds of religion when appointing members to his Cabinet, were he elected President,
After the May 5, 2011 Fox News sponsored Presidential debate, Cain was declared the overwhelming winner by pollster Frank Luntz. According to Frank Luntz,
