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!
