Cain appearing before the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel, was asked if he agreed with President Obama’s approach in the run-up to the eventual liberation of Libya. Rather than just explain that he did, which a number of Republicans in the House and Senate did, Cain found himself struggling with 1) the fact that he didn’t know anything about the Libyan situation, and 2) that he just wanted to say something against President Obama for the sake of saying something against President Obama.
That’s not what it takes to be POTUS.
Thus we now see the problem with the GOP Presidential field: they’re more interested in bashing President Obama than in showing how and why they’re qualified to run for the highest office in the land.
That is why Texas Governor Rick Perry screwed up so badly in last week’s GOP Presidential Debate.
‘Herman Cain’ Is Not Herman Cain’s Fault
That Herman Cain the political figure is so popular is not the fault of Herman Cain, but of scores of GOP Tea Party supporters who bought-in to his real-life black version of the fictional Archie Bunker character from All In The Family. From Cain’s blasts against Muslims to his consistent race-based talk about President Obama, putting him down as a certain kind of black person that Cain views as weak, Herman Cain got attention by saying things that some white racists dare not say, lest they be exposed as hating blacks.
Maybe now the Herman Cain party is over. But I doubt it.
