    Default Herman Caine?

    I really like that guy. Did anyone see him in the first Republican debate? He has a very compelling personal story. I like his policies (except maybe the Fair Tax thing... still mulling that over). And he'd neutralize all the racial static we can otherwise expect in the next national election.

    Whoa, don't go throwing around the racial component. Remember the right is all racists according to the left on RFT.
    Are you saying there is a Black Republican candidate that conservatives can agree with?

    The left can not fathom this concept. They have already started with their own racial slurs such as calling him an " uncle Tom" and many others just as they have done to every black republican.
    Candidates should be picked because they align with your ideas and have nothing to do with skin color. Conversely the right does not like Obama not due to his skin color but due to his policies and his left wing agenda.

    How is it that the consistantly obvious assumption always manages to slip by you? But have some communist commentator pose his belief about any topic and you guppy up and are quick to jump on the bandwagon.

    You wouldn't need any 'links' if you read any material by Thomas Sowell or Walter Williams, you MIGHT understand how black Republicans are treated by the socialist blacks.

    It's no different than being a conservative in Hollywood. That bastion of socialism and white guilt have the 'black-listing' down to a science.

    But living in the world of the left, you wouldn't possibly see any of that form of 'racism', and you and Roger will be quick to attack anyone that does.

    O.K. here you go...already talking about race and if that's not bad enough the Fair tax.. so to me he probably will be just like Obama.. tax the succesful people that has worked for what they have and give it to baby momma,baby daddy and White trash that DON"T WORK and DON"T PAY TAXES...Ecore de chicot regards

    It's nice to see someone of his skin color running who is qualified? Beyond that the vetting process will narrow the field .

    The only tax change worth considering is the Flat Tax similiar to that proposed by Steve Forbes.

    So far the candidates are creating a ho hum response. Could be an interesting runup to the finale. For everyone but the die hard left the present POTUS is very vulnerable .

    He said that they were already calling him an uncle Tom. I figured if that were true, there should be an abundance of examples out there. I looked a little and didn't find any, so I was just asking for a little help.

    Your agenda is quite obvious. Set him up so you can throw a grenade...

    I watched most of the debate. I have to say that what I liked best about him was that he actually answered the questions. Generally he gave rather short concise answers.
    The other candidates would talk for twice as long but never actually answer the question most of time.
    Also he seemed very calm and in control. Pawlenty also did, but the other 3 candidates seemed either nervous or just out there in outerspace.

    Anyone he knows may be calling him Uncle Tom. Doesn't have to be in or on the news. Pressure on people often comes from the people who talk to them. Clubs, church, family gatherings etc.
