Herman Cain winning the Florida Straw poll sends a signal, that the average GOP voter wants a conservative voice decently articulating conservative principles. Period.
Mitt Romney is a great speaker. Rick Perry is a conservative proven Governor. Romney is a RINO. Perry, a psuedo conservative.
Perry's idea of combining Cain and Newt Gingrich has merit. However, we can't . We are faced with the choice of another 4 years of Obamateur or voting for a probably flawed candidate for POTUS.
Nixon is a Perry supporter. However, he has to present his ideas more clearly and forcefully. Romney, well, Nixon will pull the lever for him in the general. Just like McCain.
Hopefully everyone steps up their game. Hopefully.
