Libya? Let me try answer #3

Herman Cain's response to a question about Libya makes Rick Perry's flub during the debate pale in comparison. It is painful to watch Cain struggling to remember what he has been told to say about Libya and not confuse that answer with other rehearsed answers. After about ninety seconds of complete incoherence, he then launches into one of those non-answer answers that seasoned politicians have perfected but he is just learning to do. He seems to make the weird claim that the US intelligence services had important information about the situation in Libya that they did not share with Obama which was why he made bad decisions, though Cain did not specify what it was he disagreed with.

I am seriously beginning to suspect that the 1% in the US, the ones who give the most financial backing to candidates, want a white male republican president and nothing else.

Just look at who is being promoted by the republicans, past and present. Among blacks, Cain is incompetent, and so was JC Watts when he was a "rising star" as the republicans labelled him, or Bobby Jindal. (He's not black, but the same applies to him.) All the women being promoted are braindead, only playing off their looks or toeing the line in the words they speak (e.g. Bachmann, Palin, Coulter, Malkin, etc.). By comparison, all the pale and male republican candidates look competent.

I suspect the intent of the wealthy is to present only incompetent blacks and women in order to suggest that ALL blacks and women are incompetent, that "only a white man is fit to lead". It's not just now, but in the future.

If it isn't true, it certainly looks that way.

If politics is the art of lying and Cain is a bad liar, then he is a bad politician.

Seeing Cain's (non)performance reminds me of the Onion article where Republicans oppose Obama's plan to deflect an asteroid headed for Earth. No matter what the issue, no Republican can possibly agree that Obama has done anything at all positive. I wouldn't argue that Libya was an unmitigated success, but the fact that Gaddhafi was ousted I think most would agree was a good thing.

Became a politician has to talk something, even though it can not be received by most people. That's the world of politicians.
