Democratic strategist Cornell Belcher says there is a media "double-standard" over Herman Cain saying blacks have been "brainwashed." Belcher calls Mr. Cain a bigot and a racist and says this incident is a "teachable moment." ( video and text at RCP, h/t TRS)
We also know that the Left must be worried when they read that public approval of Conservatives, Republicans, and Herman Cain is on the rise and when its latest poll Gallup poll the GOP has double-digit lead on national security and prosperity over the Democrats.
Americans see the Republican Party as better able than the Democratic Party to protect the country from terrorism and military threats, and to keep the country prosperous over the next few years.
These views come as record numbers of Americans are dissatisfied with the way the nation is being governed and express highly negative opinions about a number of other dimensions of the federal government. Next year’s elections provide Americans with an opportunity to vent their frustrations in the presidential and the congressional elections. (more at Hot Air)
REASON TO VOTE FOR HERMAN CAIN:
Herman Cain at Republican debate pledges to aggressively prosecute CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), ISNA (Islamic Society of North America), and NAIT (North American Islamic Trust) along with pledging to list the Muslim Brotherhood as a Designated Terrorist Organization. (The United West)
We are told that Herman Cain is a racist and bigot while brain trust Janeane Garofalo said that if you are for Herman Cain you are simply hiding your racism (I can't really figure that one out, but consider the source). Since the election of Barack Obama we have seen race relations get worse, class warfare has gotten worse, ....
The mindset I’m referring to is responsible for falsely telling blacks that they aren’t capable of succeeding on their own and, therefore, must be given one mulligan after another everywhere in life in the form of such criminally racists acts as Affirmative Action. But when one looks at blacks who have declined the handout from their pseudo-benefactors and decided to play the game cleanly, one sees CEOs at such firms as American Express, IBM, UPS, and yes, Godfather’s Pizza. Self-motivating blacks have climbed to the top seats of the entertainment industry, sports, the military and government. Indeed, it is difficult to find any part of American society that has not been penetrated and mastered by blacks who have chosen to do it on their own.
To say that current day right-wing conservative white America is putting forth a concerted effort to hold blacks back just isn’t true. Indeed, put as frankly as possible, it’s a lie and anyone who says it is a bold faced liar. That’s not to say that blacks in America aren’t being held back. It just means that conservative Americans are not the ones doing it. (continue at the Last Refuge)
REASON TO VOTE FOR HERMAN CAIN: We are told that Herman Cain can't win, just like we are told that he's a racist, and other drivel. Don't believe it. Vote for him if he represents your views because no matter what anyone says, anybody can win if they get enough votes (think Obama).
I'm hoping voter turnout will be huge in November 2012, especially in Tennessee where we had the second lowest voter turnout of all states in November 2010, according to a U.S. Census Bureau survey. Some are even predicting a landslide vote against Obama.
Just 37.7 percent of Tennessee citizens over 18 voted. Only Texas, with 36.4 percent, had a lower rate.
Last year’s state rate is also the lowest in a congressional election since 1998. More than 45 percent of Tennesseans voted in 2006 and 2002. (The Tennesseean)
America has NOT gone soft, her leaders have and Herman Cain can change that.
If you will get up, support Herman Cain, tell your friends, family, co-workers about him, send him money if you can, go vote for him, he could win. Wouldn't that be great for this country. A non-politician, good family man, knowledgeable business man, true Conservative, with hopefully a majority of Conservatives in the House and Senate to back him up. Woo hoo! Now that's change I can really believe in.
