Lets call this what it is....Its Cain pulling the race card....now Al sharpton has jumped on the bandwagon, everything I liked about Cain is out the window and I hope this backfires on him with GOP voters as it should.
This field of republicans just keep getting worse and worse...its no wonder the Elite Rich are scouring the planet feverishly for Candidates

I see no reason to jump to conclusions. Cain obviously didn't read the story in the Post, and responded to media that wanted to get reaction to this unfortunate manufactured story in the WaPo.
If this property was originally owned by Perry's father, and the sign showing this name was disposed of long before Perry had any thoughts of governmental office, then it should be viewed for what it is. And that is the media once again becoming the campaign arm of the Obama campaign and doing Obama's opposition research for him. It's disgusting.
Don't we have something more pressing for our next President's to be speaking to other than what some cabin in TX was named when they were a boy and their family purchased it?
Yes, I think we do...The focus should be on the disastrous record of the current renter to the WH, and what he has f'ed up in this country.
I understand, however I view this as the same as the situation where say at a party, you and a couple of friends are standing around, and maybe everyone has had that one drink too many...One friend mumbles something, and another jabs you and says 'hey, you gonna take that?'
Weather or not you react shows how easily led you are....
You gonna be led by the media dude?
I understand your thinking and no Im not being led by the media....My thoughts are based on precisely what Cain has said and my perception of the reason hes doing it....and I believe the proof of that is Al Sharpton the classic race baiter extraordinaire has jumped on Cains band wagon...not vice versa
Sharpton is an opportunist is, I have no doubt going to misrepresent what ever he needs to get attention. I am just not convinced that Cain jumped in there as forcefully as those in here may think. I was listening closely to that interview on FOX Cain was pretty clear about saying that "IF" "Perry knew of this sign, and it depends on when he took it down..." Seems that is being ignored.
Quickly, though, Herman Cain — the only African-American running for president on the Republican side — joined the pile-on.
There “isn’t a more vile, negative word than the N-word and for him to leave it there as long as he did before, I hear, that they finally painted over it, is just plain insensitive to a lot of black people in this country,” Cain said on “Fox News Sunday.”
We both have different opinions...and thats fine...
