View Full Version : Herman Cain Huffington Speculatron Weekly Roundup - Rips Cain

In this weeks Speculatron, Huffington pretty much ripped everyone; but seem fair in their coverage of Paul. You can go to the website and click each candidate to read this week's opinion.

Herman Cain, as is his wont, loves to talk about how his experience as a guy who ran a pizza delivery business taught him that to be an effective leader, you have to be working on the right problem. Well, we've taken this to heart, after having it drummed into us at several debates, and we'd like to return the favor. Herman, the problem you have is that whether or not you got into this race as a for-real candidate for president -- and plenty of people doubt that you have! -- you really haven't thought this through, have you?

It sure seems like you haven't! What we've seen up until this week is a guy with an enviable amount of charisma and the knack for potent, zazzy public speaking who largely gets by on surface charms. You really thought your 999 Plan -- and we'll take you at your word that it didn't come from Sim City -- was going to get over on its easy-to-brand name and a steady dose of constant repetition, didn't you? You see, we suspected that you hadn't really worked through the mechanics when you declined to show your math and name your advisors. That was just strange. But you were exposed, I'm afraid, at this week's debate when a gang of professional politicians ganged up on you and put you through the ringer.

The HuffPo is pretty anti-Cain and has been since the NH debate. Probably leaning pro-Paul, at least more so than most sites are. Not bad. Even Maddow didn't criticize him over the debate, while she did everyone else. Add to that the endorsement of his economic plan by Hannity and Rush, and praise for his foreign policy from Palin and Santorum (kinda), and it's been a pretty damn good week :)
