    What a sad public hanging this has been. Cain looks into the eyes of the media grilling him, and he understands what it must have been like sitting in a court room as a black man 100 years ago.

    Nothing scarier, I suppose, than a conservative black man.
    it's been no such thing. Cain could have put it to bed pretty early on. Like many, he made the msitake of trying to sneak around it instead of addressing it head on. He is not the first to have to deal with such issues, and he's sadly not the first to do so poorly.

    And it has nothing to do with race. We have had recent examples of white males facing this as well. I think we need to quit making excuses for him, and simply demand evidence from all sides, or at least a reasonable explanation.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Yes a xenophobic, corporate magnate running for president who advocates active discrimination against Muslims in America(a large percentage of which are black) understands what it must have been to be poor, black and discriminated against....

    yeah, Cain understands what it's like to be black almost as poorly as does Obama

    what are you trying to say? that in order for a black man to run for president he must have had to grow up in the ghetto, listen to rap music, have a couple of prison tats, been shot in a couple of drivebys and been denied service at Denny's?

    Do you proofread your statements so that you make sure other people find it relevant to the statements which you reply to? It's mind blogging how one person can make so many posts which have no relevance to what is being discussed. Okay cookie, I'll play. Who said anything about Obama understanding what it was like to be black?

    Oh okay, here cookie, I'll explain it to you:

    Wake: Cain understands what it's like to be a black man 100 years ago.

    Me: No, he clearly doesn't.

    You: OBAMA!

    Re: Lawyer: Cain accuser wants to tell her side of story

    One of the things I found very off putting about the Cain press conference on Tuesday was his admission that more women would come out in the future accusing him of more of these things.
    As someone who advises political figures on what to do and say, I would NEVER coach anyone to say something like that. Why would he do that? How was he to gain from that? its almost like he is admitting that he knows mroe are out there and preparing us for them.

    Okay, this is why NOBODY on this forum takes you seriously on any intellectual level except for the 3-4 forum troglodytes you roll with. If that's not what I said, then why did you reply with a post explaining that neither did Obama if my contention about Cain was true? Furthermore, why did you edit your post to add some of your nonsensical and casually racists posts about black people and what it meant to be black 100 years ago? Do you see why you and I are not on the same level intellectually? I simplify my posts so that you'll understand them and you backtrack on the very statements which you clearly understood and then replied to accordingly. Now you'll spend the rest of the thread trolling, backtracking, looking like a racist and then you'll go cry about it in the one place where I whip you like a slave. Why must we do this every time?

    what I don't get is, if I were a serial sexual harasser (which if all the allegations are true Cain is) I would never run for POTUS because I am smart enough to know it would blow up in my face.
