By Dick Morris on October 6, 2011

Dear Friend,

In an exclusive new interview filmed on Monday, Herman Cain and I probe the question: what’s wrong with Romney’s jobs plan?

I am not planning to back any of the GOP contenders but want to help them all get their message out and then back the nominee in 2012.

Thanks for watching,

, he hasn’t defined what income is… does that include ordinary income as well as portfolio and capital gain income???

What about the impact on the home builders and charitable organizations who rely on itemized deductions for their survival? Cain’s 9-9-9 will do away with mortgage deductions and charitable contributions. How will this impact our already struggling housing and banking industry? How will this impact non-profits who are reaching out to people in need? Ouch!! Again, Mr. Cain’s approach will get slammed during a general election head-to-head with Obama.

    The above commenters all make the same mistake, judging the on recommendations of the moment, rather than on the man himself. He is a Problem Recognizer, then Solver, and must wait to being President to identify and solve. His degree in mathematics, his experience with computer systems, his business successes, his directness of expression, and his common sense make it likely that with the best of political advice at his side he can put America back on the road lost to sight in these last years.

    NEWS FLASH: Re: HermanCain willing Romney VP, but not a Perry VP !?

    So it seems my love affair with HermanCain was one way. He’s a Romney plant to help Mitt get the nomination. What a sap I’ve been! I feel betrayed like Braveheart by Robert the Bruce. The Establishment always wins. What the hell!

    Now it seems the only way, the only real hope is to keep pouring in TeaParty purists into the House and Senate and into state legislatures and create a new constitutional establishment.

    TeaPartiers! Listen. One election a revolution does not make! Rise up, stay awake. Do not rest until your will is reflected in your political leadership, top to bottom.

    Yes, it looks like you WILL have to vote for MittRomney, but do it with faith that there is a new future ahead after a few, or several voting cycles. Do not faint, persevere and do all you can to deny any vote you can from going to a Democrat. Tranforming the Republican Party will take much more than the one election that is already past.

    Never give in. Do your duty for 2012 and be prepared to reload for 2014, 2016, etc and in between.

    It is plain wrong to turn every retailer, manufacturer, distributor, etc. into a tax collector. This will cost way more to bring products to market, it will invite fraud, create an underground economy, and people will simply stop buying stuff. This is not the way to go. The way to go is to cut spending and if Mr. Cain can show us how he would do that, then that is what we need to hear. And get rid of burdensome regulations. If Mitt is Wall St., and Cain is Main St., then my little company is a back road. And this is truly where the growth potential is, not in plastic pizzas and banks that have become robbers.

    Bluntly put… It takes allot of balls to field this 999 plan that he’s talking about, when I first heard it in the debate I was floored and almost fell off my seat. But I see it is refreshing and it may have some great merit. I was in the coffee shop in Washingtons China town yesterday and people there were taliking about it, and again on the elevator in a federal building I heard it mentioned.

    The Romney plans call for drastic reductions in spending; that is the right problem. The 999 plan is regressive; lets stop kidding around and smiling about it, it puts the burden more substantially on the low and middle class. Nein, nein, nein to 999!!

  • hangman on October 6, 2011 6:11 pm

    Mr. Cain,

    I have an idea, istead of 999, You call it the nine,ninty nine plan…

    there by You eliminate the confusion…

    just a thought, either way You have My vote come 2012

    long live “The Cain Train”

    Dick has had Herman Cain on many times and at times he seems to ask leading questions of Herman Cain so he can repeat basically what Dick asked him or said. Dick says he’s not endorsing anyone, but during his interviews with German Cain he sounds like he supports him. I would like to see him give equal time to Mitt Romney. Also, I agree German Cain’s 999 plan would not get through Congress, could turn into 20,20,20 and one Congress can’t require a later Congress to need a 2/3 vote to overturn their legislation, only the Constitution can do that. I like German Cain, but he lacks political experience. There is a difference between not electing career politicians and electing a total novice.

    Excellent comments to the video. I too like Cain but I agree.. we don’t need another inexperienced person taking the helm. 9-9-9 is regressive to lower income people.. no to VAT tax. VAT is what Obama proposed!

    We need to fundamentally change our existing, bloated, out of date tax and government structures. We are in a new millenium! 9-9-9 will not do that. I like Mr Cain enormously but the more I read through these comments and watch the debates etc. the more I realize I want a candidate that understands this and knows how to work with Congress.

    For that reason I am taking a fresh look at Newt. Whoever becomes president will have to deal with a contentious congress and entrenched interests on both sides of the aisle. I think Newt has this background and I also think he has the ideas needed for the new millenium. My problem with him is that he does not have Cain’s likeability.. can he relate to the average jane and joe? Time will tell.

    If Herman Cain runs against Obama there will by a major compromise in the Black-American voting that will give the Republicans the White House.

    If 86% of the Black vote went to Obama in the previous election (with the possibility that it was a race vote), Obama will lose. Also, consider how delicately the Democrats will have to choose their words in campaign ads- being very careful not to insult Mr. Cain’s background as that idiot on MSNBC attempted to do.

    Having Herman Cain as the Republican candidate will break the backs of the Democrats when it comes to political advertisements. While these do not make a campaign, it will certainly take a lot of bite out of political teeth.

    having worked as an insurance consultant for investment groups during LBO era, I know what is needed for a successful deal. A guy that makes it happen(Mitt) & a guy that makes it work(Herman). What a team they would make. I worked with Mitt when he was at Bain & know he can hold up his end. I’m sure Herman can also.

    Brilliant interview. You may have just sealed my Cain vote. He has the right stuff.

    Two things for Mr. Cain:
    1. Can Congress bind 2/3 on a future Congress? Better make sure.
    2. He should attack the tax code loopholes and “That percentage of millionaires and billionaires who actually pay no tax, those companies like GE that pay no tax, NOT EVERYBODY.”
