Told you so. Now Herman Cain is saying it.

"Former Godfather’s Pizza CEO says former Bush White House strategist Karl Rove is attacking him in an effort to help former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the Washington Examiner reports. 'It’s a good thing the voters are not looking at Karl Rove’s little whiteboard,' Cain told the Examiner’s Byron York Monday afternoon. 'I believe it is a deliberate attempt to damage me because I am not — quote, unquote — the establishment choice.'

I still think the worst (most obviously biased) of the Fox News analysts (remember these aren't the people who have shows but the ones on the payroll who appear regularly to "analyze") is Frank Luntz. I'd also make a case for Bill Kristol but he's not on as much as Luntz who appears on multiple shows.

All Rove did was use the exact things Cain has said to demonstrate he is not ready to be president. It is really scary that so many people don't see that. All they really know about Cain is the few things they hear on Fox or Rush or Hannity and make up their mind. You can like or dislike Karl Rove, but he knows how to win elections and he knows that Cain is not up to the task of running against Obama. Republicans have a bad habit of picking the wrong candidates during the primaries adn then they wonder why they lose the election.

This is the sad part of this media who call themselves conservative.

Karl Rove, Bill Kristol and most of Fox News get their marching orders from the powers that want Romeny and if they can't get Romeny they will get Perry and that is just fine for them. Karl Rove told Perry to swtich from Democrat to Republican these two are still working together. Romeny is just a easier sell then Perry to win the electon against Obama. Perry will get the VP spot that is what they want. As a Ron Paul supporter who is 38 years old watching these prescripted Frank Luntz focus groups makes my head want to explode. To think people are watching this bais, controlling media called Fox News to tell you who are the front runners. Fox News had to "create a focus group" to give you the impression that average people watching debates are giving you honest feedback is nothing but a LIE!

Also keep in mind the Koch's are running the show for Cain whom has long ties with them. Both the Koch's and Rove from just the three of them have pledged to spend almost half a billion in bankrolling the GOP candidates.
Regardless if you choose Cain, Perry, Romney or they rest, they are all nothing but bought and sold puppets to the corporations pushed by the right wing propaganda outlets like fox. Paul is only one in the GOP field that isn't

Bill Kristol does not like Romney and Karl Rove does not like Rick Perry. Karl Rove and the Bushes fell out with Perry quite some time ago. After George Bush helped Perry into the governor's seat, Perry criticized him pubically..that's just the sort of nice, loyal guy Perry is. You more than likely won't be seeing the Bushes endorsing Rick Perry anytime soon if ever.

It's about time someone stepped up to the plate and went head to head with Obama's fundraisers.

Well they might say they don't but they are just pretending to not like them because people know they are the neocons. Since Jeb Bush and Rudy G and Christie arent running they will just stick with anyone who talks about war with IRAN. They have had to adjust to the rise in the tea party and exposure of there thinking. So if they arent for Mitt or Rick then I guess they want Cain Mr FED and his famous comment if you mess with Isreal you mess with US winning over the neocons! Or they would love to have the globalist newt but that just won't happen. Or they just want another 4 years of Obama who is like Bush anyway.

You are being way too general there. There are distinct divisions in the Republican party right now. Rick Perry and Mitt Romney are not being backed by the same people and Herman Cain is just along for the ride.

I'll have what Karl's not having. That doesn't include Obama though.
