Power Line’s Hinderaker Blames ‘Democrats’ For Cain’s Downfall
As usual, right wing blogs are taking all the wrong lessons from Herman Cain’s downfall. For example: The Moral of the Herman Cain Story | Power Line.
What happened to Herman Cain is what the Democrats intend to do to whoever the Republican nominee turns out to be. They know they can’t win a debate on the economy or on President Obama’s record, so they will do everything they can to distract the voters’ attention from those matters, which should be decisive, and instead turn the focus to the GOP candidate and his or her alleged foibles.
Strange; I can’t remember any Democrats making much of a statement about Herman Cain’s numerous alleged sexual improprieties. As far as I know, President Obama never mentioned the issue at all.
Herman Cain’s wounds weren’t inflicted by “Democrats,” but by his own amazing incompetence on many issues, and his evasive and frankly creepy attempts to divert attention away from his own behavior with crude misogynistic attacks on his female accusers. He didn’t need any Democrats to point these things out — they were obvious to anyone except a right wing blogger.
