JimmyMack, I understand what you are saying.

That is why I posted it as I did by Labeling it as coming from Herman Cain and leaving the last line of Cain's post which identified where Cain got it from, which was Clark Barrow on twitter @ClarkBarrow.

And gacpl saw the sources in the first paragraph.

Thank you both for your observation and commentary.

I certainly did not intend to give the impression of having created the piece.

I suspect that Herman Cain is still a contender for elected office on the National level.

I would love to see him become President.

He has a track record of success in business and finance.

Unfortunately the biased media will paint him unfavorably.

And those who vote for hand outs will eagerly vote for the likes of an Obama.

Cain is stepping up the Facebook activity.

It will be interesting to observe this.
