Herman Cain Drops Out of The GOP Race

Updated on October 31, 2011

Herman Cain


Herman Cain's Tantrum

So Herman Cain threw a fit and told the poor of America to blame themselves. Obviously Herman Cain is out of the race for the GOP nomination. When unemployment is exceptionally high and illegal immigrants have been taking jobs from Americans particularly black men, I find this to be an untenable position for Herman Cain to to continue in the race for the GOP nomination.

How can he blame the poor? Those people were the middle class ten years ago before their pensions and health benefits disappeared. How is bad USA policy the fault of the former middle class now known as the poor. Does Herman Cain realize how much money was given to Pakistan and not to employ Americans?

And by far the unemployment hits the well educated the worst, the parents of disabled children who are getting absolutely no help from their government and if anything are treated like lepers in this USA and the African American community.which has spent the better part of the last century disenfranchised only hoping for the change Barack Obama promised them.

For Herman Cain to blame the former middle class currently the poor for their own plight is as if someone blamed him for his own cancer and telling him he deserved to die from it. But instead everyone was kind to Herman Cain. To bad he couldn't show the same compassion to the disenfranchised in the country for which he wanted to lead. These statements from Herman Cain prove he is ill equip to lead the country and should just gracefully drop out of the GOP race.

All of these candidates had better wake up. This country is changing without DC and DC is becoming more and more antiquated as the days go by. The executive may find itself irrelevant quite shortly. And the redistribution of wealth has to happen no matter who is in office. No one will be able to stop it now.

Amazing a populist message only comes around in an election cycle and then not again for three years. Herman Cain missed the memo that this is a populist year. But that is a libertarian for you always willing to set the poor free and never willing to be set free themselves.

If Herman Cain was at all in touch with what it was to be a middle class citizen in the United States he would realize how expensive groceries and gasoline are due to inflation. He would realize people are working two jobs and aren't making a living wage. So Herman Cain is to far removed from what it is to be an American that disqualifies him represent us.

      Hi Peter,

      I went back over this article and you are a kind judge. If Cain was down to Earth he wouldn't blame the poor for being victims of bad policy. No one would chose to be poor if given the opportunity to be enfranchised by their country.

      It is not rocket science and yet politicians seem to not be able to grasp this concept.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      It is always great to read your comments.
