Today ends week sixty-three of running against Obama. I ran 26.0 miles this week, averaging 3.71 miles per day.

I’ve been endorsing Herman Cain for a long time now. What attracts me to Mr. Cain’s ideas are his business experience, his direct approach to fixing the economy, the fact that he has never been an elected official, and I have one last selfish desire. Of all the candidates before us, Herman Cain is the man I want to see debate Barack Obama when that time comes. I believe Cain to be the most competent and able, passionate and driven, effective and direct means to exploit through debate to America exactly how unacceptable so many of Barack Obama’s decisions and actions have been during his presidency.

This is the way I see it. This is what I think is crippling America and this is what I think needs to happen. Our economy is the spine of our nation. As with a human body, if the spine becomes too injured or crippled to allow the rest of the body to work, paralysis occurs. America’s proverbial spine is degenerating and has been for a long time. Herman Cain has taken nearly bankrupted companies and flipped them right side up into a position of profitability. Our current president is spending us into oblivion. There is no other word to describe the amount of money this man is spending than to use an incomprehensible word like oblivion. But, all the while, we continue to give money to so many other countries that despise us while we have plenty of troubles of our own here on our own soil. America is the most taxed nation on Earth for conducting business and an excess of rules and regulations make it that much harder for existing businesses to thrive and for new businesses to begin.

There are a lot of issues out there that are up for debate but the point I am trying to make is that if we do not revitalize the ability of our spine, or our economy, to once again twist and turn and spark with life, to work the way it is intended to work, what else matters without that one, most important foundation?

Everyone gets health care now? Cool. Good luck with that in a crumbling economy. Gays can openly join the military. Awesome. I’m sure their families and partners would be a lot happier for them back home if more jobs were available and there were brighter plans for their financial futures. Abortion? Yeah, that’s a pretty important one. The economy is just going to have to wait until we can settle Roe vs. Wade. Stimulus packages? Obama is on his way to outspending every single president in American history combined…in the middle of an economy like this. Our president is pretty good at killing terrorists. I’ll give him that. But why don’t we quit giving the countries that harbor them hundreds of millions of dollars each year?

I like Herman Cain for President in 2012 because I believe he will cure our economy, which is the most important factor in our complicated American equation of issues. Worried about foreign affairs? Cain lacks experience here, but Barack Obama did, too. That is what Cabinet members, Ambassadors, and Generals are for, as Cain mentioned. As does every other president who has served, he will surround himself with worthy and capable individuals who are able to assist him with whatever issues need to be dealt with.

Again, the one most important issue in the 2012 election is whether to keep our economy bedridden with injury or too heal it and get it back on its feet. Every other issue will follow.

"It's the economy, stupid."

750.6 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day76.
