Herman Cain, who is leading in the newest FoxNews Poll, is gaining confidence with his new "Name Brand". Cain will now be more aggressive in taking on Establishment pick Mitt Romney.
ABC News reports from sold out Nueces County Republican Women’s Dinner in Corpus Christi, Texas.
"“Back in early 1990s”, Cain said, “I had to fight Hillarycare and be an outspoken voice against Hillarycare. During the passage of Obamacare, I had to fight Obamacare and he passed it anyway against the will of the people. So it seems as if many of my years have been fighting some kind of care. Hillarycare, Obamacare, and now I gotta fight Romneycare and get the nomination.”"
This represents a major advance in the strategy of Herman Cain. He now feels he has gotten his name out there and his "outsider and businessman" brand have been largely exposed to the Republican Primary voters. He is now going to the next phase, by attacking his major competition, Mitt Romney.
"We have done this campaign totally different than anybody else. We’re redefining the political landscape."
Note that Cain skipped a big RNC Gala in Washington, DC. That was a great move for two reasons.
1. The RNC Establishment has been attacking Cain and fully support Mitt Romney. (waste of time)
2. It illustrates Cain is taking his campaign to the people in an unconventional manner.
Here is a newsflash for the GOP Establishment. Cain is playing chess, while the mammoth campaign organization of Romney is slow and cumbersome.
In 2008, Barrack Obama was labeled a campaign sage for taking advantage of the internet and guerrilla style political tactics. Herman Cain is doing the exact same thing with the added advantage of his expert business marketing experience.
This ad is a perfect example of how to put a direct and positive viral internet ad out and get lots of free advertising and attention. Cain explains the ad on radio here.
So, why is Cain getting negative publicity and massive criticism from the like of the liberal media and GOP Establishment types like Karl Tokyo Rove? Because, whereas Obama supported Big Government crony capitalism, described by Sarah Palin, Herman Cain represents the genuine Tea Party limited government that threatens both Leftist Democrats, Wall Street, K Street, and the Republican Establishment.
