Earlier this week, Mr. Cain made a statement that continued the Republican efforts to repel people of color from their party. He basically told African Americans that they'd been brainwashed into not being open to a conservative viewpoint.
Now today we learn that Gov. Perry leases some land for hunting that has the name "N****rhead." Today, Cain is calling out the Governor for being insensitive.
“That’s just very insensitive,” Cain told Fox News Sunday. “There isn’t a more vile, negative word than the N-word and and for him to leave it there as long as he did before I hear that the finally painted over it, it’s just plain insensitive to a lot of black people in this country.”
OMG - that's what happens when you let one of "them" into the Tea Party. LOL
But wait, Cain isn't done yet. He's also striking a pre-emptive attack on Gov. Christie, using all the things we expected to hear.
Channeling his role as a tea party favorite, Cain hit Christie on the topics many pundits have suggested will be problems for him in the national Republican electorate should he run for the White House. Among them: Christie has said climate change is caused by humans, that “being in this country without proper documentation is not a crime,” and he attacked right wing fears of creeping sharia law as “crazy.”
So, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked — is Christie “too liberal” to win the GOP nomination?
“Yes,” Cain said. “I believe that a lot of conservatives once they know his position on those things that you delineated, they’re going to not be able to support him.”
With the collapse of Bachmann and then Perry, could Herman Cain be the new standard-bearer for the Tea Party crowd - taking it to the likes of Romney and/or Christie? You betcha! Now that is going to be amusing to watch!
