    Establishment GOP Looking for Footing (none / 0) (#12)
    by Rougman on Mon Oct 24, 2011 at 04:12:45 PM EST
    Jason, you have it exactly correct.  Cain is not an accomplished politician though he is an accomplished businessman and an accomplished communicator.  If I had to wander around every day while making sure never to utter a word in error while also making certain I don't misunderstand a question, misinterpret any context, misjudge the intent of any questioner, or mishandle rapid fire questions designed for my mishandling, I think I'd be happy with only making several gaffes a week.  

    It is now all about the attention that Cain is receiving--he is dangerous.  This morning Karl Rove was more than content to say that Cain had peaked and was going to begin a dissent.  Well of course Rove would say that, he is a card carrying member of the establishment GOP that looks at Cain as being every bit the establishment GOP outsider as John Kerry was.  As long as Rove has Romney in the race to represent the good-old-establishment-RINO-GOP-network, he is going to be happy to toss Cain's candidacy into the dust bin hoping that casually interested voters will follow his lead.

    This is one of the reasons why I think the debates and today's gotcha politics does such a disservice to voters.  These people have long records that span scores of years that we should be able to look to to form an opinion, but instead the talking heads and the experts and the political pundits frame the narrative in such a way that unfavorable candidates can be tripped up along the way.  

    Good grief.  Here we have Karl Rove, a man who agreed with the prescription drug benefit, a man who agreed with TARP, a man who agreed with No Child Left Behind, a man who agreed with an explosion of federal debt the likes we had never seen in the history of our nation, telling us that Cain was losing his appeal "among Republicans" because of a list of gaffes he presented on a dry erase board to viewers.

    I'm not going to let Cain's missteps on message in any way compete with his lifetime of achievement just because the establishment GOP wants a guy who agrees with the concept of AGW, amnesty for illegal aliens, TARP, national health care, etc., elected to office because, ostensibly, he's put in the proper amount of time at the country club and carries the proper message.

    If I vote for Cain it will be because I have thoroughly investigated him. The same can be said of any other candidate.  Karl and his posse of monolithic grow-it-slowly-statists can stick it.
