Cain/West 2012?

Consider me on the bandwagon.

Conservative muckraker Andrew Breitbart said Thursday that he wants radio host Herman Cain and Freshman Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) on the 2012 GOP ticket.

Speaking at a lecture held at the conseravtive Heritage Foundation, Breitbart argued that rather than nominate Tim Pawlenty, Sarah Palin or Mitt Romney, the GOP should run two African-Americans against Barack Obama.

“The only way to defeat political correctness and cultural marxism and multiculturalism is to aim straight at its head,” Breitbart said.

Breitbart said a Cain-West ticket would be more than just a novelty act. He cited Cain’s business experience and West’s military background as factors that would qualify each to serve in higher office. Cain, a conservative talk show host, formed a presidential exploratory committee in January. Though relatively unknown on a national scale, recent Gallup polls revealed a high favorability rating among voters who had heard of him. West, meanwhile, has become a favorite of Tea Partiers, and has pledged to use his seat in Congress to put pressure on senior Republicans to legislate conservatively.
Emphasis Mine...

  1. We need Col. West where he's at right now.
    He'd do better for us whipping people into line inn the House than as a tiebreaker.
