A letter regarding Herman Cain
WIth permission I printed a copy of the letter I was sent on Facebook
Thanks Lori for Sharing this with us.
Shannon, I just retyped an article that is not available on the internet. Remember Mark’s Uncle who wrote Unlocking God’s Secrets, Musiings of Me and My Master and Wonder No More… Bob Morley? Well, he met with the author of the article and had wonderful things to say about both the author and Herman Cain.

So, anyway, I put the article in my NOTES section of Facebook. I hope you’ll take a look at it. It reveals more about the character of Herman Cain… and it’s all good. Here’s the recommendation from Mark’s Uncle Bob:
Dear Family and Friends,
Yesterday I drove to Altamont Springs, FL, to meet for the first time a journalist by the name of Dick Corbeil, a man I have come to admire and respect from afar. I first was introduced to Mr. Corbeil’s work when a reader of my first book sent me an article that he had written in which he had said some extremely kind words about my book. By then my second book had been published so I sent him a copy, and since then he had been kind enough to send me copies of his articles, plus a book of his called The Compleat Clintonopaedia, a fascinating collection of articles covering the Clinton years.
By the time I actually got to meet with Dick yesterday, I already respected him as a very talented, politically conservative, level headed, journalist, who not incidentally loved his savior verymuch. I was not disappointed. I found him to be everything I had hoped; an educated and well read man of 77 years of age who had been around the block a few times and had a lot of wit and common sense.
One thing Dick said as we chatted yesterday, however, I felt I would take with a grain of salt. That bit of news was that he thought Herman Cain was the very best choice to be the Republican nominee, and he gave me a copy of an article that he had just written and was published in yesterday’s Apopka Chief.
Don’t get me wrong, I have had nothing at all against Herman Cain. In fact, since the first time I saw him, which was on Neil Cavuto’s TV show over a year ago, I have personally liked him and could readily see his qualities of integrity, business acumen, and good old fashioned horse sense. I also liked the fact that he was not in any way, shape, or form, a politician. My problem with Herman Cain was that I did not think he had a chance, and deep down I felt the most important thing was to get Obama out of the White House.
Then a few hours ago I found that Cain had won the Florida straw poll with over 37%, more than doubling Perry’s and Romney’s percentages. I was flabbergasted. Florida is a very diverse state. If Cain can win the straw vote here so convincingly, maybe I was way off base in disregarding him so flippantly as I had. I also remembered Cain saying over a year ago that he was the only candidate who would dig into the African American vote that Obama so drastically counts on and needs.
I started thinking more seriously about Herman Cain as my pick.
First, although He doesn’t wear his Christianity on his sleeve as much as Bachman and Perry both do, he may actually be themost deeply religious of the nine who are in the race for the Republican nomination. In fact, in addition to his completely stunning business background, Herman Cain actual sang and made gospel music records. And although he does not hold up his Christianity as a badge as the aforementioned duo seem to, Cain is definitely not ashamed to be numbered as a follower of Jesus and His teachings.
As for Cain’s business background, comparing him to Romney, who is constantly bragging about being the best businessman in the field, Cain’s business achievements versus Romney’s are like comparing a high school’s basketball record to the L.A. Lakers. What Romney has done in the business arena is a drop in the bucket to Cain’s stellar background, which incidentally includes a whole lot more than just being the head of Godfather’s Pizza.
Looking at his positions, I find nothing I disagree with. His “9,9,9” tax plan is solid and would create jobs and turn the American economy loose to soar. Cain’s position of immediately repealing Obamacare is heartfelt and I’m confident he would keep his promise. If you saw the last debate a few days ago you know that he feels deeply that if Obamacare had been in effect six years ago when he himself was battling with stage four cancer, he would be dead. He strongly believes that. And he will stop Obamacare dead in its tracks. Additionally, his strong defense of Israel is a must for me. And, in fact, going down the list of areas of national concern, Herman Cain is a conservative, no nonsense, problem solver. I have not disagreed with a single thing he has statedThe result for me? Never before have I contributed to a political campaign. All of my donations always go to Christian missions. However, the next thing I am going to do after I push the send button on this e-mail is go on-line and make a contribution to Herman Cain for president. If he can win in Florida like he did today, he can beat Obama. And I won’t have to settle for some candidate I can’t truly feel proud of.
Please read the article that Dick Corbeil gave me that he had published yesterday. It is attached. In it you will read about the real Herman Cain, and you will be pleasantly surprised. You will learn a lot. The article is appropriately titled, “When God sends you a gift, don’t stamp it ‘Return to Sender’.
Actually, I encourage you to print the attached article in order to really take in what Dick is saying.
In Christ’s love, Bob
