Big Media never fails to race-bait on behalf of Barack Obama. But for a black Republican like Herman Cain any slur is allowed if not encouraged and repeated.
Herman Cain is repeatedly referred to as the “flavor of the month.” Presumably the flavor is chocolate. Hillary Clinton supporters know if Barack Obama was disparaged as the “flavor of the month” Big Media would call that a dog whistle, racial code, ‘racism at its most blatant’!
Talk about a “black cloud” of debt over the economy and Big Media declares it racist code. Everything is “racist code” to Big Media and Obama Dimocrats if it in any way reflects the truth – that Barack Obama is a corrupt treacherous Boob.
“A reader sends over this striking mailer from the campaign for Ohio Issue 2, a Wisconsin-style measure to roll back public employee unions.
The contrast — between the shadowed president and the bright white citizens — is hard to miss, and the details of the proposal are buried by the clear anti-Obama message.”
“The shadowed president” reeks of the same false accusations made by the DailyKooks (a.k.a. The Kook Klutz Klan) against Hillary Clinton’s campaign – that it had darkened Obama’s skin color in advertisements and was engaged in RACISM.
As we have repeatedly written Barack Obama is poison and the Republicans know it and are smart to take advantage of Obama’s lack of popularity to push issues and candidates. JournoLister Ben Smith somehow does not understand this simple idea and persists in race-baiting on behalf of Barack Obama and his diminished band of loser Obama Dimocrats.
It does not enter into JournoLister Ben Smith’s mind that calling Herman Cain a “flavor of the month” is disparaging and that such language deployed against Barack Obama would have made front page headlines and manufactured outrage against the RACISM.
It is difficult for JournoLister Ben Smith and the Obama lovin’ Big Media to acknowledge that Herman Cain is a black man and a Republican and a top tier candidate for the Republican nomination. In June of 2010 we tried to clue the dolts as to how the Republican Party has adapted to circumstances and demographics while the Obama Dimocrats and JournoListers are still peddling race-baiting:
“Consider, yesterday the Hopium Guzzler dream of 40 years of Dimocratic rule due to demographic changes in the American electorate was shattered. In primary elections yesterday Republicans nominated a 38 year old woman as their nominee for Governor in the state of South Carolina. That she is a former Sikh and of sub-continent Indian heritage shows that Republicans will, as we predicted, adjust to whatever demographic realities develop. The future belongs to the swift, not the corrupt. In addition, black Republican Tim Scott, also endorsed by Sarah Palin, beat the son of long dead segregationist Strom Thurmond in a big victory and will likely become the next congressman from the South Carolina district. It’s not just Nikki Haley and Tim Scott – there are others. Louisiana Governor (and Indian-American) Bobby Jindal might be joined by “rainbow” candidates such as Susana Martinez (New Mexico governor nominee), Marco Rubio (Florida Senate nominee), and lots of women.”
Race Baiter and JournoLister Ben Smith needs to read our article “Mistake in ’08 Part VI – The Republicans React“:
“In earlier Mistake In ’08 installments (see HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE) we have outlined the massive historical mistake the Democratic establishment inflicted on the now dead party of FDR/Hillary Clinton by gifting Barack Obama the nomination. The Mistake in ’08 is coming home to roost this November.
The crackpot theories espoused by “strategists” such as Ruy Teixeira assured the Democratic establishment that if Barack Obama became the 2008 Democratic nominee there would be an endless vista of Democratic control of Congress and the White House for generations unto generations. What we call the Obama “situation comedy” demographic strategy was the future, according to these crackpot theories that have so destroyed the party of FDR/Hillary Clinton.
Instead of endless victories and a “cemented” and expanded Democratic majority in 2010, Obama has led the party to an electoral Waterloo. Not only will Republicans expand, if not cement their majority in 2010, they will do so in a post census redistricting year.”
“How would Obama Dimocrats counter such a candidacy – with low level Latino functionaries at the OD DNC or with Latino movie or singing stars? Certainly Obama Dimocrats could not produce a powerhouse Latino Dimocrat to counter Rubio because there is no powerhouse Latino Dimocrat.”
This past week Politico competitor The National Journal (Ben Smith should read them) caught up with our analysis from years ago:
“Obama looking to shore up his standing with Latinos, but it would help to have high-profile Hispanic candidates by his side.
President Obama’s numbers are cratering with nearly every demographic, but the latest Gallup weekly tracking poll shows his approval dropping most steeply among Latinos. It portends poorly not only for the president, but for a Democratic coalition that increasingly depends on their strong support.
Obama’s support among Latinos dropped 20 points since his election, with only 47 percent of Latinos approving of his job performance, according to the poll. [snip]
Talk to enough Democratic strategists about the 2012 landscape and one sees the problem extends beyond the presidency. They say a dearth of viable statewide Latino candidates is hurting the party’s chances.”
National Journal reports that Barack Obama is desperately trying to recruit some token Latinos to try and spice up the Obama Dimocratic Party. It’s more Obama flim-flam to try to help himself in 2012:
“Obama’s involvement strongly suggests that the White House is acutely aware of the need for Democrats to have a Latino candidate running for statewide office—at a time Republicans will be showcasing their own talent. [snip]
Obama’s reelection team also has been routinely highlighting Arizona as a state it feels it can win, thanks to the growing number of Hispanic voters. What would it say about Obama’s own prospects in Arizona if Democrats don’t have a credible candidate to run in a winnable Senate seat?
But Arizona-based Democratic strategists aren’t nearly as optimistic about Obama’s prospects in the Grand Canyon State. Its economy is struggling and many white voters are still mad that his administration sued to prevent the state’s immigration law from taking effect.
Making matters worse is the escalating Operation Fast and Furious scandal.”
The Obama Dimocratic Party is trying to flim-flam Latinos. The flim-flam is to sucker some sad-sack to be window dressing for Barack Obama (who continues to be irked by Hillary Clinton and the persistent rumors). Meanwhile the Republicans continue to expand their team of minority members running for public office and actually having a chance of victory. the latest Latino to add to this group is Ted Cruz, “the GOP secret weapon for 2012”.
Ted Cruz was a big hit at this months Values Voter conference of conservatives. Texas Senate candidate Ted Cruz is more evidence that the Ruy Teixiera Obama Dimocrat nonsense about a bright Obama Dimocrat future due to demographics is a phony dream that will likely turn into a nightmare.
For now the nightmare (is “nightmare” racist code? You know, night is dark and shadowy so that could be a dog whistle to racists right?) for Obama Dimocrats is chocolate Herman Cain. The dark chocolate Cain now has money and in his words “it’s time for me to be a job creator” and build up an organization.
We first wrote about Herman Cain in 2010 in One Dumb Black Man, One Smart Black Man (Cain is the smart one):
“We’re not fans of multi-millionaire Cain but he is playing a very shrewd game. As a successful business owner of a very popular food product (we’re not fans of his pizza either but sales figures tell us it is tasty to many), he can easily vault to the top ranks of Republican grassroots leadership as a voice that potentially reaches black voters as well as Tea Party activists. And Cain can do so with a non race based appeal even as his race will certainly be a matter of discussion.”
We’re bigger fans of Herman Cain now but we still don’t like his pizza. We still don’t think he will be the nominee. We were right that “he can easily vault to the top ranks of Republican grassroots leadership” and that he is a Tea Party favorite (weren’t they supposed to be racists?).
Fate has kissed the hard working Herman Cain sweetly on the top of his chocolate head. The “flavor of the month” proud black man who does not race bait is sitting pretty atop the polls.
Then today, lightning strikes twice with Cain at 27, Romney 23, Perry 16, Paul 11 All this without having to race-bait the way Barack Obama does. Oh my my.
[And consider this: “Perry’s lost 22 points since the last poll — and not a single one went to Romney. That’s how reluctant base voters are to back him over some other conservative in the field.”]
Herman Cain, the once ridiculed 9-9-9 flavor has proved he is the little engine that could. Herman Cain is taken seriously and many are now asking “should conservatives back the 9-9-9 plan?”
Cancer survivor Herman Cain is changing the face of the Republican Party. Like it or not, he is more than just a flavor of the month. Herman Cain is a Tea Party favorite and a black man in the Republican Party who has reached the top. Yes, he can. And he did it all without race-baiting.
Hooray for Herman Cain!
