People are still questioning whether Cain is the frontrunner for the Republican nomination? Well, for my part, I never bought into Cain’s frontrunner status to begin with. Rush Limbaugh, take it away:
To paraphrase Limbaugh, Herman Cain hasn’t been “that good” from the get go. The Right has been “desirous” of matching the Left, of one-upping President Barack Obama, and seeing a black Republican do well for a while now; first with Michael Steele, and now with Herman Cain.
In the 2008 campaign, Barack Obama was a well-studied, consistent, sharp, and ferocious competitor. In the run up to 2012, Cain can’t even manage literate. Barack Obama challenged the perceived inevitability of Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee. He took on the Clinton machine – and won.
Meanwhile, Cain can’t even get out of the gate, even though his main competitor – Mitt Romney – has become a parody of himself. Sure, Cain’s leading in the polls, but he’d be running away with this thing if, say, he knew where he stood on abortion, what the Palestinian right of return was, or that China already has nuclear weapons. Sexual harassment allegations or not, Cain is not now and has never was ready for a Presidential run. Give up on this guy already.
