Well here’s an unexpected Christmas present.
While you’re waiting on Herman Cain’s post-candidate solutions for the country, take a moment to celebrate the holiday season with a special message from Herman Cain, duly sent out by his campaign. The video - which you can watch below - begins with Cain, warmly hand-in-hand with his wife, Gloria, reading passages in front of a Christmas tree.
The video is accompanied with the following message:
As we experience the joys of Christmas this year, let us not forget the birth of Christ and what it means to mankind. I urge you to seek out and offer help and kindness to family, friends and those around us who are less fortunate, perhaps hungry and struggling through these harsh economic times. And a special prayer goes out to our brave soldiers, some far away from home this holiday season, and our hopes they return safely to their families. It is their sacrifice which has ensured all Americans the gift of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; and we could not be more in debt, nor appreciative of their service. This is our family’s favorite time of year and we wish you and your loved ones all the best in this lovely, forgiving and peaceful season. Have a great holiday and fantastic New Year.
Sincerely, Herman Cain
