The field has mad respect for all of them.
The field doesn't have any respect for Herman Cain. I don't know what really went on between him and those women, but his flip and cavalier attitude about this entire scandal (even using it to raise money) has been disgusting to watch.
He is like a character from a seventies black exploitation film. (I keep seeing him in that big hat that he likes to wear) All that's missing is the Courvoisier and a velvet covered love seat.
And now he is cracking jokes about Anita Hill:
"Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain — facing allegations of sexual harassment — is defending a joke he made about Anita Hill.
Cain said Friday he was approached at a recent event by a supporter who said Hill was trying to contact him.
“And my response was ‘Is she going to endorse me?’” Cain said in an interview Friday on WGDJ-AM Albany, N.Y.
“He said it in a humorous way. I gave back a humorous response. It was in no way intended to be an insult toward Anita Hill or anybody else,” Cain said." [Source]
Herman seems to like to joke a lot. I guess that's why conservatives love him so much. There is nothing like a black man who likes to joke jig and laugh to keep some A-merry-cans entertained. There is one in every crowd. Sorry Herman, being president is no laughing matter. These are serious f*&^%*g times!
I am not laughing with your simple behind, and I am pretty sure that most A-merry-cans echo that sentiment. Still, there are a lot of things you do that makes me want to laugh at you. Your 9-9-9 plan comes to mind. And the fact that you didn't realize that China has nuclear capabilities when in fact they have had it for over forty years. That one had me in stitches.
Meanwhile, two of the so called serious candidates in the republican primary were in New Hampshire demonstrating to the rest of us how they would lead our country.
"Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum participated in the Granite State Patriot’s Constitutional Conversation Thursday night, where the two were not short on criticism of President Obama’s interpretation of the constitution.
“What’s the biggest constitutional failing of the Obama administration?” the moderator asked Santorum. The crowd laughed as Santorum scratched his head for a moment with a perplexed look.
“This is going to be a much longer debate now,” Gingrich said.
Gingrich paused and said, “Not understanding which country he’s president of.”
The crowd erupted with applause and gave the only standing ovation of the night to Gingrich’s comment. Santorum followed up by saying “Obamacare.”....
..The discussion then turned to the role of religion in the constitution in relation to a civic society. Gingrich asked Santorum asked what steps he would take to create a virtuous society.
“I was in a church in Iowa and I walked into a conclave of pastors. The pastor was up there preaching revival, and in many respects that’s true, American needs a revival of the principles that made America the greatest country in the history of the world,” Santorum said." [Source]
"Preaching revivial"? A revival of what? Jobs? No. Decent health care? No. A better educational system? No. Better environmental protections? No. "The principles that made America the greatest country in the history of the world". Oh, well if you put it that way; let us all pray.
