The big news this morning is the hit-piece ran by Politico (which Obama operative leaked this info to you guys at Politico?) on Herman Cain (right on cue, as he’s now the frontrunner in the GOP primary race to unseat the worst President in our country’s history).
As you can see at Memeorandum, it’s pretty much all that anybody is talking about this morning. Which was exactly the goal of the hacks at Politico.
Professor Jacobson agrees:
The story was a legitimate issue for a presidential candidate; we only wish the mainstream media would investigate Obama’s past with half as much enthusiasm.
But there’s a bigger point here, visible only from 35,000 feet.
This is a taste of the medicine the mainstream media, which includes Politico as I have pointed out before, has in store for the eventual Republican nominee.
Whatever the source of the tip, the presentation was rolled out by Politico in a fashion to do maximum damage to Cain. The Sunday release was timed to be all over the media on Monday morning. Jonathan Martin, the lead reporter on the story for Politico, even conducted an ambush interview with Cain shortly after the story broke, receiving a muddled response from Cain.
Johnathan Martin who wrote the piece at Politico is a political hack. A shill for the Obama administration. Period. Glenn Ryenolds asks, “Would Jonathan Martin, Maggie Haberman, Anna Palmer and Kenneth Vogel have put their names on a similar piece, with no named sources, aimed at Barack Obama? Would Politico have run it? I think we know the answer.”
I love how the MFM and Democrats (yeah, redundant. I know) get the vapors trying to protect women from “sexual predators” on the Right…but yet are instantly able to dismiss real sexual harrassment and abuse from their own political hereos such as Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Anthony Weiner, and the entirety of the men in the Kennedy klan.
The Left is terrified of Herman Cain. Hell, they’re terrified of any strong, Conservative black man. Their gut instinct is to attack them and tear them down as not being “legitametly black” or “Uncle Tom’s.” See Allen West annd Michael Steele additional proof.
Herman Cain might not be the most qualified man for the job. But he very well just might be the best man for the job at this time in our country’s history. Obama has lowered the bar of “qualified” to such a low that it’s no longer a valid concern from the Lefty detractors.
It’s nearly impossible not to like a man who can break out into song like this during a press conference:
