The Conservative Media is Helping Cain through his "Scandal " ... Paving The Way for Obama ..
JohnZiegler.com ^ | 10/31/2011 | John Ziegler

Posted on 10/31/2011 6:45:37 PM PDT by reformjoy

The current conventional wisdom regarding Herman Cain is that, at best, his campaign is a ticking time bomb certain to implode like those of Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and Donald Trump already have. At worst, his campaign is already burnt toast thanks to the uncovering of two sexual harassment claims against him from the 1990s.

As is often the case, the conventional wisdom is dead wrong. In reality, Cain has never been in a stronger position to win the nomination than he is at this moment.

Keep in mind this is coming from someone who likes Cain personally, but who is positively certain that his nomination would not only assure President Obama’s re-election, but also the restoration of a fully Democratic Congress.

There are many factors which make Cain’s bid for the Republican nomination still more than viable and perhaps even formidable.

Yet another Romneybot saying that we have to suck it up and vote for Romney, and that we probably will not take the Senate.

Where did this guy come from ????

His narrative is very 2 dimensional - he assumes things will stay constant as they are today, and there are some simple rules that govern the “ways of the world”. His analysis is terrible on Cain.

Cain has captured the imagination of the people - not the media. I'm not saying this little “scandal” won't be good for Cain - but I think Cain could easily take Obama.

Ziegler’s view of the conservative media strikes me as too cynical, which makes me doubt his instincts and overall analysis. I wonder how his track record is in these kinds of things. Did he call the midterms correctly?

When did Donald Trump declare his candidacy? How did I miss that?

You know what, let us nominate a conservative candidate, work hard and allow the chips to fall in place. Atleast after the election, we can feel ease. For all these idiots who think romney will get moderate vote, he will loose big among conservatives and there will be 1 or 2 people sitting in election offices during election. I don’t want to walk to see that somber mood in my county GOP office.

Thank you. These manipulating forces are determined to control our votes with their propaganda.

You’re right, let’s nominate a conservative and get behind them 100%.

Just why would Ziegler's opinion count more then anyone else here at FR. If these vague accusations count for anything it is the depth of desperation that the democrats and their RINO lackeys will go to to try and stop a real American.

Establishment claptrap. Romney is the one who cannot beat Obama, and Obama knows it. He’s scared to death of Herman, because Cain can.

I guess if a conservative like Cain can’t win we need someone like McCain. That should work as well as it did last time.

“...already burnt toast thanks to the uncovering of two sexual harassment claims against him from the 1990s.”

I’d say evidence of a blue dress or a pubic hair on a coke can (DNA) is in order before the “allegations” against Cain can be taken seriously. Soros “buys” Secretaries of State, politicians, “journalists”, “revolutions”, sex and stupid women every day.

Bizarre stuff.

>>> If it is the latter, it must raise the issue (surely in a much nastier general election) of whether Cain was simply a convenient minority “spokesperson” of these groups/companies he allegedly “ran.” If Cain was simply a figurehead being used because he was a charming black man, liberals will say he benefited from affirmative action and his entire business record will be discredited.<<<

As young people say, WTF? Any proof of this anywhere by anyone? And compared to the current occupant of the White House...

>>>What is particularly stunning about the way that this is all going down is how incredibly similar Cain’s situation is to what happened with Obama in 2008.<<<

Really? You mean all the stories about little incidents throughout Obama’s life, the allegations, the minor events, every person who interacted with Obama interviewed? Similar? I recall Obama slid into office with scarcely a glance at anything, and when it became obvious, like Rev. Wright, the media gladly accepted Obama’s comment that he didn’t listen very much.

>>>Here we have an inexperienced, charismatic black man...<<<

Inexperienced? Compared to Obama’s life before the Senate? Is this man kidding? Or deluded?

There are some truths in this article - namely, the media gang rape that is going to happen against Cain. On the other hand, I’ve been on the inside of corporate culture, and those who are successful tend to be very tough, very smart, and very savvy. Combine that with being an ordained minister. Obama’s experience doesn’t fill a thimble of Herman Cain’s experience.

Any insights about the reasons why John Ziegler seems so strangely out of touch with reality here would be appreciated.

He also assumes the media won’t go after Romney with their hate.

The media is going to be outrageously hateful to whatever Republican is running and Mittens is wide open to darts just like everyone else.

Mainly, Mittens will deflate the base and independent vote -like McLame did. Voters want reform - not slow road socialist. He will disarm the election of the mess of Obamacare because the Romneycare and Obamacare are the same.

The media is going to have to watch themselves hating on a successful Black man like they went after the Alaskan governor. Their race games could backfire on them if Cain is able to play it right. Their over the top hate game backed fired with Clarence Thomas.

When liberals bring it up now we need to say “That’s old he said/she said news, but I wonder if you were ever able to interview Larry Sinclair who had sex and snorted cocaine with Obama in Chicago.”

To help Herman send him something http://www.hermancain.com/
but also “like” him at facebook.com.
Facebook likes are a new way to count “buzz.” Starting from way back, Herman has increased his “likes” by 8% in just the last week. Mitts has a huge lead in “likes” but he has been running for a long time.

>>>Update from John Ziegler, see links for more!<<<

Dear John Ziegler/Media Malpractice Mailing List Members:

In light of the recent developments with regard to Herman Cain, I have written an extensive editorial and recorded a video to go along with it. I think you will find both to be quite interesting.

You can find both on my website here

As well as on my Facebook page here

Please feel free to share with friends.

All the best
John Ziegler
