The EFM Feature

Recently, Herman Cain explains why he is a better choice than Gov. Romney for 2012:

“He would be a good choice, but I don’t believe he can win for the following reasons.

One, he ran before. He has an ankle bracelet on called RomneyCare. Secondly, I know the south and you have to win the south. Mitt Romney didn’t win the south when he ran. John McCain won the south; Mike Huckabee won the south. And I think that the reason that he will have a difficult time winning the south is because when he ran the first time, he did not do a good job of communicating his religion. Unfortunately, it doesn’t bother me, but I do know that it’s an issue with a lot of southerners.

You don’t win South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia, you can’t win the nomination, and then you can’t win the presidency.

I like Mitt. I supported Mitt Romney in the last presidential election, but he didn’t get the nomination…. so I don’t think that he is going to be any stronger this time around Barack Obama, even though Barack Obama has a terrible record. Terrible.”

You can watch it here… if you can stomach it!

3 Responses to Cain Says Gov. Romney Can’t Win the South

  1. Vineyard says:

    I lived in Georgia as a Mormon missionary so I know first hand a little of what Cain is talking about. Unfortunately, Romney could “explain” his faith in Christ all he wants and all many people in the South are going to remember about Mormons is what their preacher told them the Sunday before.

    I do think if Romney wins the nomination, Haley will be very supportive.

  2. James says:

    Romney almost won Florida last time around, but Huckabee siphoned off enough votes to give the state to McCain as the two formed a very effective tag team.

    I’m not sure if Cain pays attention to polls, but Romney is leading in both South Carolina right now. And given Cain’s theory of why one shouldn’t support Romney, Republicans shouldn’t have supported Reagen in 1980 given that he lost the nomination to Ford in 1976.

    Oh Ye of Little faith …. Put your shoulder to the wheel and push along … Romney – Rubio … the dream team !
