Appearing on FNC's Happening Now this morning, former House Majority Leader and Chairman of FreedomWorks Dick Armey was asked to comment on reports that the Tea Party Movement has not been involved in the GOP primary process and may in fact be dead. As an influential voice in the movement, Mr. Armey explained that tea party activists have been working on reinforcing the conservative majority in the House and capturing a conservative majority in the Senate while the media has been focused only on presidential politics. But he also said the grassroots movement could have a very real role in choosing the eventual presidential nominee once the primary process is complete.

Businessman Herman Cain has officially suspended his presidential campaign citing "false and unproved allegations" and "distractions and hurt" to himself and his family. He is moving on to what he calls Plan B - pushing his solutions to the nation's problems from outside the electoral process. But before his presidential campaign fades into history, there are some lessons to be learned from how the Cain train turned into the Cain train wreck.

GOP presidential contender Herman Cain's initial response to yesterday's allegation that he had a long term extra marital affair was an emphatic denial. Then a statement from his lawyer seemed to back away from the denial claiming "private, alleged consensual conduct between adults...is not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public." Now Mr. Cain's chief of staff has confirmed that the candidate is reassessing whether to stay in the race and will make his final decision "over the next several days." If that decision is to abandon his bid for the nomination, will it really be because of that alleged affair or could this latest sex scandal be giving an unqualified candidate an excuse to get out before he spectacularly implodes on the national stage?

In the race for the GOP presidential nomination, businessman Herman Cain may have proven himself to be too much of a political outsider with his naive 9-9-9 tax plan and his foreign policy gaffes. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich could falter under the weight of decades as the ultimate Washington insider. So Texas Governor Rick Perry's new ad portraying him as "the outsider who's willing to step on some toes" and his years of executive experience in government might strike the right balance with voters looking for the best of both worlds.

During a presidential primary fight one contender highlighted the inexperience of another by saying, "The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training." Of course that was Vice President Joe Biden speaking about his current boss President Barack Obama. Over the past 3 years the nation has learned just how right Mr. Biden was, yet now the Republican Party is flirting with making the same sort of mistake.
