Herman Cain may have captured the lead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, but it’s clear that the White House still considers Mitt Romney to be President Obama’s chief rival.

On a Sunday morning appearance on NBC’s Meet The Press, Senior White House Adviser David Plouffe declined to directly answer the question “Is Herman Cain for real?” Instead, Plouffe used the opportunity to launch a vicious attack against Romney.

    I agree with Plouffe on Romney’s political backbone. It seems Romney’s core is in Wall Street.

    The party of “high moral values” seems to have forgotton (by convenience) many of the Ten Commandments. “Though Shall Not Lie” is the main one they seem to ignore, as, so far, FOX News makes billions off of spreading lies across the airwaves, the internet and the nation’s televisions. I am optimistic though, that the working claas, the elderly and the poor seem to be gradually realizing that the Tea Party does not represent them, nor does the vast majority of the Republican Party. To watch the circus that is referred too as the Republican Presidential debates, and the candidates that represent the GOP, I can’t conceive of the American people actually trusting any of them to actually be the Commander In Chief of our country, and by the time the General election is here, not only will the candidates have basically destroyed each other, but the one left standing will have no shot at being elected. He,or She, will be running as fast as they can from the Tea Party, by then, as it will be considered so radical and be so unpopular by the vast majority of the voting public, that anyone who had supported their views, will be forced to deny that they ever believed in the policies of the lunatics that support the Tea Party. It will, however, be too late, as every candidate (with maybe the exception of Ron Paul, who the GOP will never allow to be the candidate) is on record supporting doing away with Social Security and Medicare, putting the welfare of the wealhtiest 1% of the population over the vast amjority of the population, and in defeating President Obama being more important that the very existence of our
    country. I predict a Democratic landslide next Novemebr!

    I voted for Obama, but will not again. He has proven that his campaign promises were lies. The only honest and viable candidate for the presidency right now is Gary Johnson; he has crossover appeal and as far as I know, has never lied; he is also still quite popular in his state of NM, where he was a successful 2 term governor.

    Ask yourself why he’s being kept from full participation in the debates. Could it be because the Republicans don’t want a candidate they cannot control going up against Obama? Or maybe because he hasn’t been bought off by big corporate donors? In any event, the pundits that declare whether or not someone is ‘electable’ have no right to decide that for anyone. That’s the people’s decision, not for some backroom buddies to decide.
