Herman Cain Will Not Be Your Second Black President: Vanity Allegedly Kills the Cain Campaign

17 Aug

 

by Antoine Scroggins, Your Black World

It was over before it ever started. Or at least it will be soon for business man and Presidential hopeful Herman Cain.

At the Ames Straw Poll on Saturday, Cain finished a distant “fifth place,” which will more than likely result in his campaign team signaling the white flag.

But Herman’s inability to connect with voters was not the only reason for his more than probable early exit from the race. Politico reported that “internal conflicts with his staff, an unclear campaign strategy, and the Tea Party mantle” were the main reasons for his demise.

In addition to that, a former employee of the Cain camp believes that his vanity was more important than political objectives. “He wants to be in front of the adoring crowds, but he doesn’t seem to be interested in the issues,” the former staffer stated.

Talk about a Prima donna.

    “Well, he claims to not be black. What the hell is that all about? He’s darker than I am”

    Although I am not a supporter of Mr. Cain, he did not say he was not black! In fact, he stated that he was BLACK, and that he did not like being called an AFRICAN AMERICAN!

    WHy do you have a problem with that?

    You folks need to stop plastering stuff around that is just not true!

    Well, that is life in the public eye. Truth be told, he wasn’t going to be given a chance because he is intimidating and does not have the charisma of a Barack Obama. Michael Steele might have fared better than he. His mistake was trying to run as an anti-Obama candidate instead of approaching the race with sincere concern and vision for America. However, this anti-Obama tactic seems to be working well for other GOP Presidential hopefuls, but I guess Cain overlooked the double standard and forgot he was black.

    I personally think he had a few great idea’s but keep in mind nothing said to help the middle class Americans….so he was done along time ago.
