Herman Cain: I want to see how Cain handles himself with Bachmann and Romney in the mix. Right now Cain is the strongest declared conservative. He is way out ahead of both Bachmann and Santorum. In the last debate, Cain easily out shined Santorum and establishment favorite Pawlenty. Can Herman do it again with Romney and Bachmann in the field?
Michele Bachmann: I want to see how she handles the debate and matches up against Herman Cain. Of course I am dying to see how she will handle the inevitable Palin/ Rollins debacle. Her response will be quite telling.
Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty: This should be the source of all the friction in this debate. Romney is the front runner thus far so all the others will try to knock him down. Pawlenty has a lot to gain by knocking off Romney so I expect he will be throwing the most elbows.
CNN's behavior: CNN is no friend to conservatives. They have had plants in some of their past debates. I suspect they will be extra unfriendly to both Cain and Bachmann. Let's watch and see just how much bias CNN exhibits tonight.
Newt Gingrich: I will be watch this clown purely for entertainment value. I cannot imagine him saying anything that could resurrect his disastrous campaign. Look for CNN to ask Newt all the ugly questions.
What will you be watching for in this debate? Sound out.
I am a black conservative from a black conservative family. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and finally settled in New Jersey. Throughout my life I knew I did not share many of the common beliefs of other American blacks.
For starters, I never took to the term African-American. I have meet too many real Africans who are now Americans, to ever with a straight face say we share something in common other than skin tones. Their history and culture is truly a unique and is a completely different experience from my own. My culture is distinctly American, from the way I speak, think, dress and act and you know what else? I love it! So for me, I will always be an American who just happens to be black.
I put myself and my beliefs out here in cyberspace, to show my fellow blacks that there is something more. That one need not accept the false promise of the next social program, the belief in government as savior or the next Democratic candidate will right all wrongs. That true Hope and Change comes from belief in yourself, in a nation that allows dynamic movement if you are bold enough, smart enough and brave enough to make it happen.
