In January 2011, Cain announced he had formed an exploratory committee for a potential campaign for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2012 and on May 21 Cain officially announced his candidacy. Although Cain had not held elective office before and remained well back of former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and, later, Texas Governor Rick Perry during summer polling, in mid-October 2011 Cain was leading.

Romney his the biggest flip flop out there. The guy will change his stance to suit the current talking climate. He's a phony. But still running strong in the GOP early race.
It's still hilarious how the MSM deliberately tries to marginalize Ron whenever he wins. Rolling of eyes, insults, "it doesnt matter"...etc...etc..
Basically, if the MSM does not want him involved, it's obvious he isnt on their team.
That's OK though, he's still got the largest grassroots support, including our military personnel,over any other candidate including Obama.

They're bored w/ Romney (he ran before, enacted Romneycare, and he's a Mormon - so that's sketchy), Perry is turning out to be another simpleton from TX, Bachmann is just a little too bat shit crazy for most,...
Once the populace figures out that Cain's 9-9-9 plan is a winfall for the rich, will hurt most everyone else, and doesn't nearly cover our budget shortfalls, he'll sink like a stone. He'll be lucky to get 5% of the vote in NH - sales tax is taboo there.
Ron Paul deserves some more air time and another look, but I'm doubtful that he'll get it. He's too academic for most people's tastes. Heck - even smart people can't fully wrap their head around what he's selling. I can't. And I have some serious doubts about the outcomes of some of his policies, but I'm still willing to give him a listen and a chance. Personally, I think he should be thinking now about running as a 3rd party candidate to stay in the debate if he does well in the R primaries.

Momentum the MSM deliberately attempts to curtail for Ron by marginalizing him.
As for "too academic", that's simply a sign of the publics inability to critically think and do some homework. I've had to do mine. I was confused on many of Paul's stances when I took to him in 2006-2007 because of his strong anti-war stance. Since that time, I've learned a great deal about history and economics. The fact remains, the school of economic thought he comes from, much like himself, has been marginalized in history. Even though these same scholars from this school have predicted the booms and busts of central economic planning accurately for the last 100 years.

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain has cast himself as the outsider, the pizza magnate with real-world experience who will bring fresh ideas to the nation's capital. But Cain's economic ideas, support and organization have close ties to two billionaire brothers who bankroll right-leaning causes through their group Americans for Prosperity. ...

I haven't yet, but I'll give it a go at some point. 37 min youtubes better be damn interesting to keep me engaged. I'm buried between work and charity prep work for January (Jam Cruise, Panic en la Playa, Mayan Holidaze).
It kept me engaged. It reveals some interesting facts about economic theory and paints a portrait of Mises.
"Interesting" would probably be relative in this case. You might find it boring, you might learn something.
