Why Herman Cain and the GOP can’t be taken seriously

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Wednesday, November 2, 2011

First, forget the “vast right-wing conspiracy” to oust Hermie. Everyone wants to shoot the messenger.

Sometimes, it’s easier to let the “other side” do the talking – whatever side that is!

It’s not as if we can’t see it, it’s not as if we can’t identify it, and it’s not as if we have no name for it. For we can see, identify and name it – whatever it is.

Let’s just ask one reasonable question – and then, you can get to the heart of this matter. If you were in a position to hire an expert – at least someone with even limited ability or experience – would you hire someone whom has no experience? Again, if you were a restauranteur, would you hire someone whom has not even been to any cooking school to be executive chef? Would you expect Herman Cain – while CEO of Godfather’s Pizza – to have hired regional managers, who hired store managers, who hired folks with utterly no experience in the food service industry to manage a local Godfather’s Pizza store? If your answer is an obvious “no,” then why would you – or any rationale person – support, or take Herman Cain’s run for the GOP presidential nomination seriously? Why, he’s never even run for Dog Catcher… much less the county line!

Is it not sad, that one watches Fox News for humor, and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on the Comedy Channel for news?

Cain campaign as a sign of decadence

Rod Dreher     November 2nd, 2011

When Herman Cain sang at the National Press Club the other day, I thought it was absurd. There he goes again, the clown. Looking at the performance in greater context, I found it easier to smile at, and not in a hostile way. Still, if you think about it, it says something bad about America that here we are, facing the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression, and looking at a future of crippling indebtedness unless our leaders take drastic action … and the top candidate for the Republican nomination a year from election day is a charming businessman with no political experience, who knows nothing about the world (and makes jokes about his own ignorance), and who is given over to camping it up on the campaign trail. If times were great, there would be serious reason to doubt whether America could afford a man like Herman Cain in the Oval Office. But times are terrible, and could easily get far worse. It’s really quite an indictment on the unseriousness of our country, or at least the conservative electorate, that Cain is at the top of the polls now. The media play their own role in perpetuating this circus. Conservative James Poulos writes in the Daily Caller: Read the rest of this entry »

Herman Cain admits fault, saying “This many white people can’t pretend that they like me!”

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, October 31, 2011

Troubled Republican presidential contender Herman Cain – former CEO and Chairman of Godfather’s Pizza – spoke today, October 31, 2011 12:30 PM, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Video of the event is available on the NPC.org website.

In addition to fending off questions about the private settlement with two as yet-unknown females whom leveled charges of sexual harassment against him while he was President of the National Restaurant Association, he fielded questions about other issues and topics concerning his candidacy and potential as the GOP presidential nominee. The website Politico broke the harassment story Sunday evening, October 30, 2011.

As others have noted, it’s highly unlikely that as President of the association, he was unaware of any settlement, as he has so far claimed.

Mr. Cain made some serious fax pas in his responses to questions from attendees, among which were his broad characterization as race/ethnic relations as being “class warfare.”

And in response to a question about race relations – found 51:28 into the video – he delivered a genuine zinger with this statement, Read the rest of this entry »
