Cain is black, and was alive during the 60’s, therefore he had an obligation to do those sit-ins and whatnot? Is that really the idea here?
I’m not sure what O’Donnell’s point would have been. Even with that smug grin and arrogant expression, there’s no battle to be won there.
What? Might he next accuse Cain of actually being racist and trying to keep the black man down, evidenced by the fact that Cain didn’t march?
What a sorry excuse for “journalism” these days.
Cainunism [keyn – yuh – niz – uhm] – noun
1. A theory or system of economic organization based on a wildly optimistic regard for the fiscal discipline of Congress and the President. Adherence to this theory typically requires the suspension of disbelief concerning the ability of increasing the government’s power to tax, without substantive spending cuts, to actually reduce burdens on taxpayers and to produce economic recovery.
2. The intentional use by politicians of resonant slogans which obfuscate and distract some voters from the otherwise conspicuous absence of thoughtful, realistic or realizable fiscal or monetary plans and policies.
Cainunist [keyn – yuh – nist] – adjective
1. Of, characterized by, favoring or relating to Cainunism; Cainunistic
In a sentence: “Imagining that a ‘9 – 9 – 9’ percent tax ‘plan’ would not soon be 9.9 – 9.9 – 9.9, then 19 – 19 – 19, and so on, is just more magical Cainunist thinking.”
Origin of Cainunism: term used by informed voters to describe the economic-sounding slogans that originated from the 2012 vanity presidential campaign of Herman Cain (1945 – )

Obviously this man is a racist. If you disagree with someone of a different color, your a racist, right? Isn’t that how liberals have told us it works?
Man that was one Fn intervie, The Fn audacity of that journalist, basicaly telling Caine,… you sat on the side lines in the middle of the biggest civil rights fight for African American and now you are reaping the benefit of all those who stood up and fight coward.
Normally this is a Black on Black insult, where you ere not allowed to think an act like an indivdual but must represent the herd mentality 24/7. But this shit, coming from a Fn whiteman, wtf!
Hell he should just gone ahead and called Caine a “House-Nigga” and be done, becuase that exactly where he was heading with that shit.
Beside wtf does that guy know about battles? You could be holding your line and never fire a bullet all day while another guy is pinned down and taking constant fire, thats the way life goes.
He dont know what Caines personal situation was or what he had to deal with on a daily basis, so if I was Caine I’d tell him to STFU as politely as is possible on TV.
Palin started something that other GOP candidates would do well to follow. She kept a list of the interviewers who treated her unfairly and refuses to submit to another interview by them. It drives them nuts.
Among liberals, there are two types of black people: Leftists and Uncle Toms. The media has already decided that he is an Uncle Top. To quote Clarence Thomas:
“…as far as I am concerned, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity-blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that, unless you kow-tow to an old order this is what will happen to you, you will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured…”
@Jay: It’s obvious you believe the Cain supporters you speak of have their goals set unrealistically high. It fits in with trying to drain the swamp as it’s called by Pelosi. But you can’t defend the hen house with a fox.
You seem to reek of the poisonous cynicism that has it’s grip on this nation. Be aware that that is part of the setup phase of Rules for Radicals. Get the people to dispise their current state of affairs. Looks to me like it’s working. Occupy Wall Street et al, is the fruition of that endevour.
Herman Cain may be the last hope of taking the government from the career politicians and putting it back into the hands of the people. It could prove to be a return to having real leaders in the White House vs pretty, soundbite, photogenic, celebrative figureheads.
If we are to return to the fundamental purposes our founding fathers had in mind. Then we have to start at the begining. We the people not, we your rulers.
I watched the Cain-O’Donnell interview and I thought Cain “cleaned his clock”. He left O’Donnell with an open mouth in awe several times. O’Donnell fancies himself a philosopher – but he sure isn’t. His TV ratings are certainly poor in comparison to FOX – aren’t they? And I don’t think Ed or Rachel do any better either.
Another thing about this Fn MSNBC interviewer lecturing Cain, …while Rosa Parks was making a stand and refusing to sit in the back of the bus, your father told you to not get involved, now what do think about what your father said to you do?.
Cain probably wasnt expecting crap like this but he should be better prepared next time around.
Considering this event with Rosa Parks happened in 1955 Cain would have been all of 9 years old, so wtf is a 9 year old supposed to do about fighting shit like this?.
I do think Cain need to stop being a gentleman and punch back harder against these Fn idiots who challenge him for not being Black enough.
The audacity of this liberal white tv commentator is beyond belief. There were riots, and his father sought to protect his son and keep him safe. I would suspect, that back then, people handled protest in a variety of ways, not just marching.
Only a liberal racist white liberal like this guy could be so ignorant as to get himself invoved in a conversation like this.
