In an 7 page mailer to Iowa voters Herman Cain says he believes he will be the 2012 GOP nominee because he’s a descendant of slaves who can garner a large share of the black vote, he didn’t inherit a dime, he has traveled the globe for years, and he’s a believer in Jesus Christ.
The descendant of slaves reference is a veiled shot at President Obama's mixed heritage. Cain will never admit it but he is definitely saying that he is more "black " than Obama even though Obama can trace his ancestry directly back to Africa. Buy hey never let the facts get in the way of a good story.
That's real nice coming from a guy who claims that race doesn't matter. You know the guy that says he is a black american not African American.
With that statement Cain is trying to pander to black voters. Sadly he doesn't realize that in the black community any statement from him resonates as much as one from Rush Limbaugh.
Mr. Cain needs to stop lying first to himself and then to republicans that he can get black voters because he's black. He can't get more of the black vote than say Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul.
Black voters are much smarter than that. The majority vote for who they feel can best do the job. Because when you are talking about your wallet the only color that matters is green and you just want somebody that can put more green in your pocket and food on your families table.
Herman Cain, Mr. Descendant Of Slaves is not that somebody.
