If any of you are scratching your head wondering why there has been so much pressure on Chris Christie to run for the nomination of the Republican Party, especially when there are three viable candidates running, and why he has said no for the umpteenth time – Here’s what I think.
I think that of the three candidates who are front runners, each of whom who have a great shot at winning the White House in 2012, two of them are NOT Party insiders or career politicians – Cain and Romney, but, MOST specifically Herman Cain.
WHY THE INSIDERS DO NOT WANT CAIN OR ROMNEY:
When we hear or read about Karl Rove’s nuanced covert antipathy for Cain and Romney, it’s because neither of them are “members” of his SPECIAL CLUB.
In fact, Romney and Cain are as independent minded as any front-runners we’ve ever seen, ESPECIALLY Herman Cain.
Even Dana Perino, Bush 43’s former mouthpiece; she too is soft on Cain and Romney.
All of this is because Cain and Romney are independent-minded, and owe NOTHING to the Party ESTABLISHMENT. They cannot be controlled by Party Insiders, which include Bankers, Wall Street Shysters, Powerful Investment Types, Lobbyists and Industrialists – And for them, this is a very big problem.
When one looks at the BIGGER picture, and beyond the beginning of Obama’s failed Presidency, whom should America look at to lay blame for the mess America is in today?
SIMPLE QUESTION – SIMPLE ANSWER . . . THE POLITICAL INSIDERS.
WHY HAS CHRISTIE REPEATEDLY SAID NO IN SPITE OF THE PRESSURE?
Chris Christie is smart enough to know that the Insiders can give him a huge advantage in terms of money, people-power (troops on the street), and organization.
But . . . what the Insiders can’t give Chris Christie is the support of the Conservative rank and file, those who have had MORE than enough of being told who to support, and who to vote for by Establishment Republicans.
There might have been an ENORMOUS groundswell of support for Christie amongst the Republican Insider Blue Bloods. But, there was no support for Christie on the proverbial STREET where it really matters.
And then there’s the not so little problem about Christie being a Liberal in terms of the Second Amendment, Illegal Immigration, Man-Made Global Warming, and appointing a Sharia Jurist to a Judgeship on the New Jersey Supreme Court.
In short, Christie knew he couldn’t win the hearts and minds of the Republican Base, and was not about to throw himself on the Insiders’ sword in a desperate attempt to protect them and their privileges.
WHAT ELSE ARE THE INSIDERS UP TO?
This might be a stretch, but, as I see it, I believe the Insiders are maneuvering Primary Dates to shorten the campaign period, in order to give Herman Cane LESS time to get fully established than what they believe he really needs.
If it comes down to a choice between Cain and Romney as it is looking more likely, I am convinced that the Insiders much prefer Romney, who says that he is not a politician, but certainly has politician in his blood.
Romney’s father was a Governor of the State of Michigan. Romney ran and lost to Ted Kennedy in the 1994 Massachusetts Senate Race. Romney served as the Governor of Massachusetts from 2002 to 2006, and has since spent all of his time campaigning to be the Republican Presidential nominee.
In my eyes, that sort of makes him a career politician.
Also, as Herman Cain pointed-out . . . Romney was indeed a private businessperson on Wall Street, while Cain was a private businessperson on MAIN STREET. And that is no small difference.
Another BIG difference between Romney and Cain, is that Romney made his fortune taking over and gutting distressed businesses, only to sell-off the assets while bankrupting the rest. And then moving what he could offshore to countries like Communist China.
And while Romney ran a Vulture Fund, Cain worked to take distressed companies like Burger King and God Father’s Pizza to revive them, grow them, and make them successful.
HERE’S GREAT NEWS FOR CAIN AND CAIN’S GROWING NUMBER OF SUPPORTERS:
1 – With a final and definite NO from Christie, the Insiders have run-out of Great White Hopes.
2 – Cain has caught the imagination of the people and doesn’t need the extra time before the Primaries.
3 – And because Cain was NEVER a politician, and has no miserable political record to defend or hide, HE IS THE MAN.
4 – And for the capper . . . Cain is now coming under the media microscope, which means that they too see a major change in the political landscape.
And if I don’t miss my bet, Cain will soon enough become the Darling of the Media, because, unlike all the other candidates on both sides of the political divide . . . Cain is truly THE REAL DEAL!
I don’t want to grow older any faster than I have to, but I can’t wait for 2012.
