Herman Cain’s propensity for evading the truth has made him look like a buffoon on more than one occasion. We are now witnessing the last throes of that buffoonery.
While quitting the race for the 2012 nomination, Herman Cain seemed not to be aware of how presidential elections actually work.
See the video from MSNBC …
Taking a page from his political role model Sarah Palin, Cain claimed to be a fighter while he was quitting, “As of today, with a lot of prayer and soul searching, I am suspending my presidential campaign. I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distraction, the continued hurt caused on me and my family. Not because we are not fighters.”
Just like any good right wing media star wanna be, Cain denied that he has done anything wrong, “As false accusations continue, they have sidetracked my ability to present solutions to the American people.”
Herb went down swinging the stupid stick by claiming that he made the “Final Four” for the presidency, but how can he make the final four when he quit before the first primary and caucus? Herman also doesn’t seem to be aware that the winner of the Republican nomination doesn’t get to be president. There is this thing called a general election in November where the Republican nominee will have to defeat Barack Obama before they can take up residence in the White House.
Rick Perry didn’t know the voting age and date of the election and Herman Cain doesn’t seem to know how elections actually work.
Herman Cain essentially claimed that the media hurt his feelings by reporting on his mistress and history of sexual harassment, so he decided to take his ball and go home. Cain repeatedly called the allegations against him false, but if the allegations are false why did quit? Someone needs to explain to Herb that falsely accused people don’t quit.
The real reasons why Can quit was because the allegations are true, his poll numbers plummeted, and his fundraising has dried up.
