An Open Letter to Bill O’Reilly

Dear Bill O’Reilly,

I am writing you this letter because you are in the unique position of being able to boost the profile of the single-most-conservative candidate in the Republican nomination process.  It is already the Spring of 2011, and with an election less than two years away and counting, lines are being drawn and primary voters are picking their sides.  By this time in the 2008 Presidential race John McCain, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama had all announced their run for the top spot in the White House, so for all those in the media (this includes you Bill) still holding their breath for a Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, or Chris Christie to swoop in and run for the nomination, it’s time to stop speculating about potential candidates and start paying attention to the real candidates running, which brings me to Herman Cain. 

In January of this year, I noticed Mr. Cain was gaining steam among the Republican base when he easily beat out Mike Huckabee, Chris Christie, Rick Santorum, Mitch Daniels, and Newt Gingrich in a New Hampshire straw poll.  Most recently, he was invited to speak at a Tea Party Patriot gathering in Phoenix, where he won their presidential straw poll.   Not only does he continue to outperform the media’s expectations, but his message has really struck a chord with the Tea Party, who will decide the next election without a doubt. 

As a Tea Party member, a successful businessman, and a true conservative to boot, Herman Cain brings to the table a flawless conservative candidate who doesn’t carry the baggage of a Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, or Mitt Romney.  As if that weren’t enough, he is widely credited with helping bring down Hillary-Care in the 90’s when he confronted President Clinton in a town hall meeting that was broadcast on national television.   If it had not been for Herman Cain, health care would have been forced on the American public long before President Obama thought about running for President.  If there’s one issue that will dominate the 2012 election it is Healthcare and Herman Cain has the ability to win that debate. 

With grassroots support and a message that is catching fire among the base, the only thing between Herman Cain, the long-shot GOP candidate, and Herman Cain, Republican Party front-runner, is the media boosting his profile, which is where the O’Reilly Factor comes into play.  As the number one cable news show with a nightly audience in the millions, an in-depth interview on your program would thrust Herman Cain into the spotlight in such a way that he could no longer be ignored by the national media.   Plus with a message like, “Stupid people are ruining America” you gotta’ agree with the guy, right Bill?  Do America a favor, and have Herman Cain on the Factor!

Signed,

Les Dowrey

Politico writes about Les Dowrey's interview with Governor Huckabee!

Everyone's talking about my interview with Mike Huckabee, even Politico!  Check out this great article from Juana Summers on Poltico.com, where she covers the interview and what Governor Huckabee had to say about Herman Cain!

Huck likes The Hermanator

 By JUANA SUMMERS 

Mike Huckabee says he could end up in Herman Cain's corner.  “I like Herman a lot," Huckabee told a Kansas radio station Wednesday. "He and I are both big believers in the fair tax. Herman is a strong, free market guy, he’s a pro-life guy. I don't know of any issue on which he and I disagree."

Huckabee's comments " Huckabee to Les Dowrey of the Virtues and Values show came during his swing through the heartland to promote his latest book, "A Simple Government." While Huckabee said he likes Cain's positions, he also offered a little advice for the Atlanta businessman, so far the only presidential hopeful to launch an official exploratory committee.


"Raise more money than the other people, and that's the hard part," Huckabee said, alluding to his 2008 bid for the GOP nomination. "I found I was up against millions of dollars that people would spend money just to attack me. If I didn't have a good treasury, then I wasn't able to respond to those charges."  Asked if Herman Cain would get his vote, Huckabee stopped short of an endorsement.  "Of all the people that are being talked about, Herman Cain is certainly a great guy who I could support," he said."
