Why can’t Libs have a Black Republican running for office or on the Supreme Court?

Posted on November 22nd, 2011 by admin1 in running for republican office

The groundswell of controversy erupting from Herman Cain’s alleged sexual harassment and his subsequent "witch hunt" claims has raised questions about whether conservative blacks and Latinos get a fair shake from the media.

"This is about blacks and Hispanics getting uppity," radio show host Rush Limbaugh said. "[Liberals] cannot have a black Republican running for office, can’t have a Hispanic. The Left owns those minorities, those two groups can’t be seen rising on their own."

What’s important isn’t the allegations but how the candidate handles the allegations. Every candidate has issues of some kind come out. Cain is messing up his reaction badly.

Evidence has come out about Thomas that makes Hill’s testimony more plausible. The allegations against Cain so far aren’t anything concrete. (They also were thrown into the spotlight by Republicans.)

It’s not all black Republicans that have such issues. Colin Powell or Condi Rice probably wouldn’t.

    We can. We just didn’t like Clarence Thomas, and we don’t like Herman Cain. We don’t dislike them because they are black.

    And it’s the REPUBLICANS who are "playing the race card" on this one.

    Alan Keyes ran for president.

    He didn’t sexually harass anyone.

    There would be little objection to a candidate like Colin Powell. You understand you can’t just choose any random black republican, and expect bi-partisan support.References :

    Cain says that the Perry campaign was behind it.

    Thanks for reminding me how insane Rush Limbaugh is, I almost forgot about him.References :

    Remember 2008? Conservatives are RACISTS because we didn’t want Obama! Right?

    Why are republicans the only ones to bring up race.
    Cain is an idiot who, whenever he opens his mouth, show exactly how vacant he is.

    He is a phony candidate, with no campaign staff is the early primary states, and no true way to gain access.

    He is only running to sell his book, and auditioning for a Fox News job.

    His skin color is meaningless.References :

    Liberals can’t afford to have any blacks or "Latinos" leaving the plantation. Those that do are swiftly punished.

    Liberals, I know what time it is. Just because I’m conservative, don’t call me gringo.References :

    First of all, lying windbag Limbaugh has no right to be opening his trap about racism and such considering he was fired from Monday Night Football for making a racist comment on the air.

    Secondly, it is more likely that the recent revelations are coming from someone on the right – it would make more sense for Dems to release the info AFTER Cain got the nomination – dontcha think? Ah, breaking news… Here ya go:

    Thirdly, I dont care what the person’s racial background is…. ANYONE who proposes a tax plan that gives the uber rich another 450% reduction in taxes, while doubling the taxes of the lowest bracket is freeking out of his mind, and clearly unfit for the office of the President.

    Finally, I dont even care if the allegations are true or not — PLEASE run Herman Cain as your nominee. PLEASE. I BEG you.References :
