When you are a former Federal Reserve Chairman, and the darling of the Media… Can ANYTHING bring you down to earth?
Maybe we should ask cousin Barry Obama about that. Not much stuck to him during the 08 selection… (somewhere Clarence Thomas is saying WTF?)
In 2008 we covered several allegations, and evidence that Mr Obama was a crack smoking, bisexual boy toy. (Barry himself admitted to drug abuse, echoing “Lord Clinton” when he said that he “Tied off, but didn’t inject”)
Bill Clinton (Rockefeller) was no stranger to serious allegations, Pre “Selection” back in 1991 – 92. It didn’t sink his campaign, in fact, thanks to the fawning media I myself was suckered into voting for him… So, is Chairman Cain just a Republican version of Cousins Barry and Willie?
Being a “conservative” should normally translate to traditional morals, and that family values should mean something to voters… But hearing El Lushbo Limbaugh cover for Cain makes me think that this too shall pass. Expect Cain’s unsolicited press agent Neal Boortz to take the cover to a whole new level (or jump like a Rat from the sinking ship)! – Just because there is smoke billowing out of the building doesn’t mean there is a raging fire?
Cain has zero experience governing. Like Obama. He has zero credibility on Foreign policy. Like Obama and Bush. He seems confused about constitutional issues, economic issues (his alleged trademark) and brings nothing to the table (other than stale Pizza) as a whole.
The left wing media wants no part in pitting him against Obama (they have already pre selected Huntsman or Romney, either of whom will get creamed in the general election), and the right wing media has realized that Cain is this year’s Huckabee, (fellow glib talk show hosts, that can stand out in debates, and give good interviews.) … So, there is your basic agenda for both the the wings of the vulture. Same, Same, Opposames all around.
In case you missed it somehow, here is the story (via Politico.com):
During Herman Cain’s tenure as the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, at least two female employees complained to colleagues and senior association officials about inappropriate behavior by Cain, ultimately leaving their jobs at the trade group, multiple sources confirm to POLITICO.
The women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them financial payouts to leave the association. The agreements also included language that bars the women from talking about their departures.
(Like Michael Jackson, they settled out of court. Of course this didn’t help Michael clear HIS name did it?) Both women received separation packages that were in the five-figure range.
The sources — including the recollections of close associates and other documentation — describe episodes that left the women upset and offended. These incidents include conversations allegedly filled with innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature, taking place at hotels during conferences, at other officially sanctioned restaurant association events and at the association’s offices. There were also descriptions of physical gestures that were not overtly sexual but that made women who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable and that they regarded as improper in a professional relationship.
BTW: Herman Cain DENIES knowing anything about a settlement in these cases. If you believe that, you’re judgement is severely biased. He is clearly lying, and like the Tiger Woods case; we fully expect more women to come forward now that the dam has broken!
Mr Cain should be held accountable for both his character as a potential US President, a pundit in the media, a successful (Pro Wall St) businessman, and as an African American.
In regards to the latter… Cain owes it to his race to break stereotypes, IE: Abuse and objectification of woman, white women, and overall street hustler memes.
All of this need to be taken very seriously for no other reason that we cannot afford to have yet another Blackmail-able President (no pun intended)…And I for one have no interest in selecting darker version of Silvio Berlusconi !
