You’ve got to be shitting me. I guess they needed a replacement for Sarah Palin, and Cain is just dumb enough to fit the bill.

I wonder who his handler there is going to be. Greta? Hannity?

Actually he graduated from Morehouse College in 1967 with a Bachelor of Science in mathematics.

Then continued his education and graduated with a Master of Science in computer science from Purdue University.

Cain was chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City Omaha Branch from 1989 to 1991.
He was deputy chairman, from 1992 to 1994, and chairman, from 1995 to 1996, of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

He has served as a member of the board of directors of several companies, including Aquila, Inc., Nabisco, Whirlpool, Reader’s Digest, and AGCO.

But I suppose to you he just looks stupid, right?

Ya, no racism here… move along…

So what. Stupid is as stupid does, and what Cain says in public is ten pounds of stupid in a five pound bag.

Incidentally, all that is needed to serve on a board of directors is the right connections. Being dumb as a post is hardly a disqualification.

Untrue of course. However even if it were true, how do you get to have the right connections?

(Please keep your answer in context to Herman Cain. He wasn’t from a wealthy family, doesn’t have old money connections, doesn’t own a bunch of stock)

It is funny that one of his many published books is titled “They Think You’re Stupid”.

Having fun behaving in such a predictable way? Calling him stupid and a token black (“they just need more Coffee in that vat of cream!”). Yup no racism there….

How many books have you had published? How many university degrees do you have? How many syndicated radio shows do you host?

Just keep showing your true voice. It becomes more and more obvious.

No Buck it’s not about racism..that thought never entered my mind I was using..uhm..whats that word..Oh yes ..Sarcasm..and if he is that well educated and published please explain his total lack of knowledge about todays world..And YOU Buck brought race into this..not I or any one else..YOU…Think about Fox News..the Republican Convention or ANY Right wing meetings or parties..count the blacks Buck..and tell I’m wrong in the point I DID make..

10 Buck  Fri, Feb 15, 2013 12:39:12pm

re: #9 Robur

And YOU Buck brought race into this..not I or any one else..YOU

What did you mean when YOU said “they just need more Coffee in that vat of cream”?

Exactly how is Herman Cain coffee?

Buck..wow..It’s TV Buck..it’s all about the visuals..the appearence! Fox is using him as a token black, Buck..Not ME! I’m not wired for racsim or predjudice Buck..seek your self adulation elsewhere..

And my point is that your portraying him as a token black is racist.

If you said that about Juan Williams, or Harris Faulkner, or Uma Pemmaraju, or Wendell Goler I would have made the same point.

They each (including Herman Cain) earned their positions. They are not “coffee in a vat of cream”.

13 Robur  Fri, Feb 15, 2013 1:11:16pm

Point taken Buck..but you still don’t get it.The fact that you bring this up satisfies me that your intentions are honorable, no problem there. Your making too big of a deal in what is simply banter that both YES both races use and in various forms..it’s nothing serious it’s just talk and don’t tell me you have not heard much worse in this site. Now. understand? If thats not good enough then what the frak..damn..get over yourself

14 Buck  Fri, Feb 15, 2013 1:21:47pm

re: #13 Robur

Yes, I understand.

Do you understand that Herman Cain EXPECTS the left to portray all Conservative blacks as stupid? Do you understand that they are not actually stupid, they simply have a different point of view on politics? One that is no more or less stupid than yours.

Yes, I understand that it is “just talk” to you, BUT I think it is very serious.

And I think if the same talk was about President Obama, you would think it was serious as well.

15 Buck  Fri, Feb 15, 2013 1:56:11pm

I will add that I don’t really think the intention is racism (despite what was said is racist), I think it is fear.

re: #5 Buck

Just think of it this way. This has always been a one sided morality play.

No, he just sounds stupid. In the debates, in interviews he sounds stupid, i.e. he says really stupid things, just like Sarah.

Would you like examples, because if so they’re are plenty of them out there for you to find yourself. We covered all this here months ago during the primaries.

Everyone who has their every word recorded and gone over with a fine tooth comb has plenty of them.

Everyone. Even the President and the Vice president. Would you like examples, because if so they’re are plenty of them out there for you to find yourself.

Herman Cain is measurably NOT stupid. In every way that our society measures stupid.

He has multiple university degrees. He has held serious jobs, and excelled at them. He has had many of his books published.

What does your resume look like?

His intelligence or lack of it is not reflected in his resume. You have to be both stupid and a real asshole to abuse women the way he has.

Again, stupid is as stupid does. For example, Bill Shockley embraced scientific racism, and on that point he was being stupid. His Nobel Prize in physics and other credentials were not a defense to a charge of being stupid for embracing scientific racism.

Cain has spouted numerous stupid wingnut talking points in public. The difference between being stupid and pretending to be stupid to appeal to the base is uninteresting.

No actual truth to those accusations, BUT if you are sincere about that, then you would say the same thing about Bill Clinton and Al Gore.

re: #22 Buck

And you know this how? Were you there?

BUT if you are sincere about that, then you would say the same thing about Bill Clinton and Al Gore.

If I heard women talk about them the way I heard women talk about Cain, yes I would. Some of what I’ve heard about Clinton makes me think he’s a big fat jerk, but he never made me think he’s stupid the way Cain has. You look pretty stupid and somewhat like a jerk defending Cain.

24 Buck  Fri, Feb 15, 2013 4:19:19pm

re: #21 EPR-radar

Bill Shockley embraced scientific racism, and on that point he was being stupid.

Yes, but nothing Herman Cain said rises to that level.

Basically what you describe as “stupid wingnut talking points” are really just point of views that you disagree with. Fair opinion, not scientific racism.

25 Buck  Fri, Feb 15, 2013 4:24:26pm

re: #23 wrenchwench

And you know this how? Were you there?

That is not the standard that we use to decide if someone is guilty. You might notice that all the accusations disappeared the second he no longer ran in the primaries.

I mean, come on…

Some of what I’ve heard about Clinton makes me think he’s a big fat jerk, but he never made me think he’s stupid the way Cain has.

Yes, and that is my point. You are basically saying that “You have to be both stupid and a real asshole to abuse women” unless you are are a liberal. And the Clinton stuff really happened.

26 EPR-radar  Fri, Feb 15, 2013 4:29:12pm

Among other things, Cain is a climate change denialist. That is objectively false and deliberately stupid in ways that ordinary political differences over taxes and spending cannot be.

So you know both that the Clinton stuff happened and that the Cain stuff did not.

Now who is making judgements based on partisan feelings?
