The Cain Mutiny

31 Oct

I like Herman Cain. I like his 9-9-9 plan, I like his background and I like his attitude. It is easy to see why the establishment Republicans view him as a threat. Likewise, it is very easy to see why the left sees him as a threat. Which brings us to the accusations of sexual harassment.

I have no idea what the truth is. If he engaged in sexual harassment, he should not have. But the hypocrisy of the legacy media is enough to make a reasonable person gag. Remember the finger wagging President Clinton? Oops…then the semen stained dress appeared. And wasn’t President Clinton believed to have raped a woman? None of that apparently could be held against him (no pun intended) by the leftist meda.

So what gives? Well, beyond the obvious that the left has to find a way to discredit Cain, this says something about the left that I find intriguing.

Behind the willingness to engage in character assassination, the left has this intriguing way of telegraphing what they are afraid of. It is very clear to me that the left is frightened of a conservative landslide in 2012 and Cain is growing in popularity. He may be the unifier that Obama pretended to be.

So what can the left do? They have no policies to help the country, and if Cain gets a decent amount of blacks to vote for him the Democrats will be toast. With nothing remaining, the left attacks a person’s character and demonizes him.

The left has just told us their weakness.  We know what they are afraid of. In spite of everything, Cain needs to carry on and exploit that weakness all the way to victory. Here is an opportunity for him to show how presidential he can be.

One response to “The Cain Mutiny

    The bar for what constitutes sexual harassment was lowered in the 80s and 90s to the level that any perceived impropriety, whether intentional or not, could result in charges being filed and the mindset was an automatic presumption of guilt. Holding the door for a female coworker was frowned upon, for instance.

    That having been said, Cain needs to sharpen his response to gotcha topics to turn it back around on the questioners. In a country with 20% unemployment, the arab world uniting under sharia, with the draining of the Treasury and the president bypassing Congress and legislating by fiat, the press wants to talk about this? That’s all he has to say. Put the press back on their heels.
