To say that Cain has added entertainment value to the race would be a gross understatement. The first "uh-oh" moment of the campaign was when,Cain riding on the magic carpet of his 9-9-9 plan, made his damning statement about the poor and unemployed. While some of his comments regarding the Occupy movement may have been true, Cain neglected to point about the obvious statistics that the lack of domestic manufacturing and skilled labor jobs are what has driven the unemployment rates of minorities and those with lower degrees of education to all-time lows. If the infant mortality rate of Milwaukee is now worse than areas in rural China, do we blame the citizens of Milwaukee or do we blame tax laws which make manufacturing in China and oversees more profitable?
Cain's inept interview comments regarding foreign policy and Libya further drive home the point that while he may have mastered marketing sub-par pizza, he is no Rhodes scholar. The Republican party allowed Cain to maintain a bumbling image which later dissolved into one of the philandering oaf. Ironically, back in May 2011, The Astute Bloggers, published a post decrying early claims that Herman Cain was the GOP's magical negro. Guess they need to watch the video for "The Song of the South" a few more times.
