PoliticoNo one is willing to flat out say it, but the Republican and Democratic Party establishments have already written off Herman Cain. Here’s the tell-tale sign: With less than two months to go before the Iowa caucuses and the insurgent presidential candidate polling near the top of the GOP field, none of his foes in either party has taken a hard whack at him — despite the fact that he is engulfed in controversy, battling reports of sexual harassment dating to his time at the National Restaurant Association.
Cain’s rivals on the right hope his support will bleed away on its own and they don’t want to anger Cain’s remaining fans.
But for other Cain critics, the whole harassment saga has confirmed what they believed to begin with: That there was never really a chance voters would put the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza in the Oval Office.
No but we will put a community organizer with absolutely zero experience at anything but demagoguery in the job. I for one am sick of the media telling me who I want as president.
