Cain, conservatives look foolish blaming scandal on race

There are 274 comments on the CNN story from Nov 5, 2011, titled Cain, conservatives look foolish blaming scandal on race. In it, CNN reports that:

If you're Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Brent Bozell, Sean Hannity, and yes, even Herman Cain, you must feel pretty stupid for trying to fool the American people by blaming the reporting on sexual harassment complaints against the GOP presidential candidate on his race.

Obama has his faults, as do all humans. He's hardly the best President to ever hold the office, but he's doing the best he can with what he has to work with. Cain, on the other hand, can't even work with his own past.
He's no leader, and he won't get the nomination. Ron Paul is the only hope for a GOP candidate with a chance in hell of beating an incumbent President. Romney's too boring, Gingrich is too arrogant, Bachmann is too bat-shit crazy, Santorum's too creepy, and Perry is too...well...Texan. I'm writing in my vote - IMO NONE of the assholes is MY President.
I'll vote for any of the Republican candidates, except Ron Paul. Paul blames the US for 9/11, he's as nutty as Michael Moore.

...The time period for these incidents spanned a period when Cain was in his late 40's to his early 50's which also happens to be a period when Cain's wife experienced the change of life or menopause.
How in the living <bleep> did you deduce from these comments that I was blaming his wife? I never did and you keep repeating yourself which is even more telling.
When Cain's wife was going through menopause, it could have been a contributing factor to these incidents as it also likely means he wasn't getting as much action from the menopausal Ms Cain not to mention the continuing PMS, etc.<end quote>

You can compare what I copy-pasted with what you wrote - it;s still there. And once again, you're welcome.

When the press has vague accusations against the only strong black Republican man, that's Mandingo journalism. It's a stereotype, treating the black man as sexually aggressive, not reality. Reject racism and vote for Herman Cain.

They will need more than unsubstantiated claims to destroy Herman Cain and he'd be a far better president than Obama.

Mr. Cain is an African American man. But race is not always a relevant detail. In this case it isn't. He isn't qualified to be President, and this has nothing to do with his political persuasion or his ethnicity. Whoever competes against President Obama is going to need some serious "gravitas" (to quote Karl Rove), because President Obama was a Constitutional Law professor and was President of the Harvard Law Review, and sponsored 137 pieces of legislation in his 3 years as a US Senator. And here is Herman Cain, bragging about the fact that he doesn't read. I don't think so. Why anyone would be tempted to even mention Mr. Cain's ethnicity in the face of this kind of contrast, is beyond me. And you will notice that the sexual harrassment situation did not need to be used to disqualify this man. He should have disqualfied himself when he saw who he would be running against.

Well said. I think the only reason he is in the primaries is for the cash. He's not a politician he holds no office. So, depending on what type of PAC(s) he has when he drops out he can keep the donations for himself. Just like the ex-governor of Alaska. Although he may have been encouraged to enter help turn the spin machine.

Brian, America is her people, not her politicians.

Mr. Paul blames American POLICY for 9/11.
He doesn't blame 'America', sir.'America', aka The United States, is the AMERICANS. Not the damnable, wrongheaded, compensated CONGRESS. No sir.

Orenthal Julius Simpson's civil suit, and his criminal charges for theft - Mandingo journalism.

Lewis Farrakhan's rise to power in the Muslim community, and his subsequent encouragement of racism against Whites - Mandingo journalism.

Clarence Thomas' rejection by the SCOTUS, and the failure of Anita Hill to recant - Mandingo journalism.

Exactly. There soon comes a point where this country has to deal with why we have all of these terrorists. We have been in two wars for over ten years, this idea we can just run up trillions more in debt and war with Syria and Iran and Pakistan, on and on, when we are bleeding to death financially over these two wars we have been in is not realistic. All we can do is figure out why these people hate the U.S., should we stop being the police of the world, should we get out bases out of many of these countries. We cannot war our way out of this stuff. We tried that, look at the financial shape of this country.

I'm starting to wonder if Newt Gingrich is also just running to sell books and for PAC money to spend on himself later on. He's a smart guy, yet he screwed up in the debate with regards to illegal immigration, in terms of what the tea party wants. He's not stupid, so for him to say what he did, I immediately thought that he does not want to be president and that he did that on purpose. He's old, tired, a 40 year politician. He quit campaigning to go on a Greek cruise. I think he said that stuff to get out of winning. I think he just wants a bunch more easy fast money. He's not stupid, so he knew he would tank in the polls if he talked about doing an amnesty, and then he did it.

Wit Herman Cain, there was no civil suit, no court filing, no criminal accusation or charge.

And Herman Cain's rise to riches from poverty to the next G.O.P. nomination for President. Herman's never blamed others or advocated race hatred, just the opposite.

Clarence Thomas called it, "This is not an opportunity to talk about difficult matters privately or in a closed environment. This is a circus. It's a national disgrace. And from my standpoint, as a black American, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree."

Thanks for the suggestion, how about an unfiled Kangaroo court case. An unserved subpoena never issued by a judge and no verdict from a jury that never existed. It's not just unsubstantiated, the accusation against Cain is unsubstantial.

I like Judge Thomas's words, it is a high-tech lynching
