Tea Party Republicans Using Herman Cain as a "Sargeant Waters" Stooge as they did Michael Steele!
It is a crying shame - what is happening to Herman Cain. He foolishly believes he is a viable candidate, not a token "Sargeant Waters" puppet. We all know the Republican Teapartiers have no intention of supporting Herman Cain. The Tea Partiers are using him as a puppet, a token, their "one black best friend" so they can say, "Some of my best friends are Black." He is like HINO Marco Rubio, with less of a chance.
Republicans and especially Tea Partiers are cheering Cain for one reason: He is their token black person. They are doing this on the same basis as Republicans selected Michael Steele as the head of the Republican National Committee (RNC). They kept him in this role for a scant 2 years. Republicans and Teaparties ridiculed and criticized him for the entire time! They USED Steele as a TOKEN! He was their "One Black Friend!" Look where Steele is now. He is a pundit on the very liberal - MSNBC. The Republican Teapartiers needed another TOKEN! They have chosen Cain.
Cain is hardly the man Michael Steele is. Steele was an accomplished man. He started out his career as an Attorney. He specialized in Financial Investments for Wall Street. As a businessman, he founded his own law group and legal consulting firm. He was Chairman of the Republican Leadership Counsel. He chaired the Minority Business Enterprise taskforce. He served as Lieutenant Governor of Maryland. Then he was named head of the RNC. Even with ALL of these accomplishments, Republican Teapartiers treated Steele with disrespect and finally kicked Steele to the curb.
The TeaParty Republicans mistreated their ONE BLACK FRIEND, so they had to find another ONE.. but this time, they needed to find a "Sargeant Waters" type of Black Man, one that thought like they did, just like "Sargent Waters." The TeaParty Republicans found him in Herman Cain. This time, instead of picking a brilliant, prestigious, Republican politician and businessman who had the ability to think on his own, they picked the head of Godfather's Pizza and a far right wing radio host. They needed someone who criticized his own peer group. He's never held public office, has NO Foreign Policy experience, and has only been involved in Big Business (with some scandalous activities). They also like his far right wing views including: Anti Women's Choice, Anti-Muslim, ANTI Gay, ANTI Immigration Reform/ANTI Latino, PRO Tax Cuts for the Rich, ENDING Social Security and ENDING Medicare as we know it!
But alas, even with all his extreme right wing views, the bigots on the Far Right will NEVER Vote for him (as they NEVER really, truly supported Michael Steele). Cain will soon find out (as Sargeant Waters found out) he is just their Token!
Kinda Sad when you think about it!
