Is there really anyone other than Romney?
It looks that way - follow the $

But it could be a 3-way race, too... that might be a giggle
Maybe even 4-way if the OWS were to get aroused

Merc, are you sleep deprived? Your recent posts are more irrational than usual.

If the Rs had one good candidate who would appeal to the American Middle (wihle still being acceptable to the extreme Rs, and there is the catch) Obama would be in for a heck of a fight.

Alas, the only R who fits that description (that I can see) is Mitch Mitchel, and he has already ruled it out (and if he changes that, he loses his appeal). The rest range from C minus to F.

Herman Cain has the spotlight, but for how long?

The candidate who has risen to the top of the GOP presidential field
is now in greater demand, and he insists he is in the race for the long haul.

Some voters and analysts remain skeptical.
With his poll numbers surging and opponents scrambling to stop him,
the underfunded and understaffed Cain is no longer just a fringe candidate
with a catchy plan for the economy.

Instead he lifted off on his debate performances and specifically his nonstop touting
of the 9-9-9 plan, which would scrap the current federal tax code and
replace it with a 9% tax on corporate and personal income and a 9% national sales tax.

(He says it would simplify a tax system that Americans abhor.
His rivals say it's a simplistic nonstarter that would put his party
on record as supporting a new tax.)
And besides all that:
The 9-9-9 plan totally eliminates Social Security and Medicare
--- completely - all of it - no more - so when you pass 65 you're on own.

Cain isn't going anywhere. His 15 minutes are about up.
He is basically on a book selling tour. I wish him well.

Heck post more about Paul, Bachmann & Huntsman. Why you only pickin' on Cain?

Now about that Fast & Furious ... Solyndra ... murder of an American citizen ...
(channeling Merc)

This post about Cain came because he is ahead of Romney in the polls.
Posts in this thread were:

First - Perry
Second - Romney
Third - Cain
Fourth - Paul
Fifth - Perry
Sixth - Romney
Seventh - All the R's, including Bachman and Santorum
Eighth - Cain

And besides all that:
At the 6.5 mark, I added Merc !

I'm open to suggestions... or feel free to join in

Nah the extremists on both sides vote against the other team more so than for their own.

NBC News/Wall St.............10/6 - 10/10...Cain +4
Reuters/Ipsos...................10/6 - 10/10....Romney +4
PPP..................................10/7 - 10/10....Cain +8
WP/Bloomberg/PSRAI.......10/6 - 10/9......Romney +8
Gallup...............................10/3 - 10/7.....Romney +2
ABC News/Wash Po...........9/29 - 10/2....Romney +8
Quinnipiac Un.....................9/27 - 10/3....Romney +4
meh. Aside from the blatant two (D) polls, Romney is still in the lead.
And Romney is in a statistical tie with O at 45% each.

Look up John Huntsman.
