Cavuto: Who Says Cain Can't?

Herman's critics are raising Cain


So Herman Cain can't be president because he's never been a politician.

Never been governor.

Never been senator.

Never elected to the House.

Never elected to anything.

So what the heck would prepare Herman to run everything? I mean, a pizza guy, in charge of the whole pie?

It's amazing. The more Herman rises, the more they raise Cain.


Because this fast phenomenon came from fast food?

Because the things he turned around were franchises and not boondoggles?

Because he made pies and didn't just talk about expanding pies?

Because his experience wasn't losing money, but making money?

Because he met a payroll and didn't oversee shrinking payrolls?

Because when everyone was asking, "Where's the beef," Herman was making the beef?

And because when another president espoused the values of national health care 17 years ago, Herman politely warned him about pitfalls eerily familiar today?

Food for thought. Food guys can make you think. And who knows better about recipes that won't work?

All I know is when the kitchen's on fire, who better than a guy who's been in the kitchen and taken the heat?

I'm not here to sing Herman's praises, but urge fairness from all of his critics. Because I'd rather have a president who knows how to turn businesses around than a politician who just talks around and around.

The food guy gets it. Would it kill any of his critics to at least chew on it? Because the more I hear them, the more I want to vomit.
