    Reminds me of an old axiom. If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with ****.

    It's the singing voice.

    if you wanna call what he did with (or to) Godfathers Pizza, 'success'

    otherwise people seem to be really impressed with his collection of cowboy hats

    Wonder how many of you managed to achieve as much advancement in your lives as Cain did? Wonder what held you back?

    success in one doesn't necessarily translate to success in the other, no matter many times Mitt says it does.

    You're right I never lost millions of dollars for a company where I was the CEO. So yes he has achieved more than I, maybe even more than you. But is that a criteria for president?
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Wonder how you would feel if you found out Cain received special treatment as a result of Affirmative Action.

    do tell ... tell us about his 'advancements' and Not his job 'titles'

    then again you also seem to consider being the 'last' airline to file bankruptcy somewhat of an achievement as well

    :rolleyes:
