Who would be the best GOP candidate to run against President Obama?

Memphis-born Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain is visiting the Mid-South today, hoping his 9-9-9 tax plan will resonate with voters.

Cain, a favorite with the tea party, is speaking at W.J. Freeman Park at 2629 Bartlett Blvd. in Bartlett.

Funny. Obama rarely/if ever visited Tn when he ran and lost the state when he ran against Hilary Clinton. Big time. The crowds that Herman Cain is getting in Tn is showing one thing and proving it: the real racists are in the Democratics Party. Herman Cain is being sought for his proposals and stance on issues. Spend all the time you want arguing. Southern Republicans support candidates based on merit. Southern Democrats use the black community to stir up fear. Facts.

What will the libtards do now? They can't play their tired ol'race card. Let's talk about Solyndra, Fast and Furious, etc. Maybe the Failure-In-Chief could put it on C-Span. Oh wait. That's right. He lied about that.
