You're right. This would be such a great country if those blacks just stayed in their place.

black people who buy into the liberalism, just want to go back when they had masters to take care of them and tell them what to do!! its some kind of syndrome. they cant handle having to make their own choices in their own lives.

Didn't read the entire thread (where did the Canada bit come from?) but I was turned off by Lawrence O'Donnell's tone and attitude. Like that graphic that said 9-9-9 or 9-1-1? Is that professional? I would submit it is not.

Also, his trying to find some gotcha question, like that Vietnam one. Cain was serving his country during that time and I don't understand how O'Donnell was trying to turn that around. Just didn't seem to be a rational argument. I guess O'Donnell thinks that the only way to serve your country is to carry a gun in the jungle of Vietnam? Please...he just wanted to seem "tough" but instead came across as rude and illogical.

I hate when tv personalities try these kind of interviews. You can easily ask challenging questions without being sanctimonious or rude. It's both distracting and irritating. Guess I can see why MSNBC has such terrible ratings.

Yeah right, if all blacks grew up as Herman Cain, they will still be sitting in the back of the bus..

"I stayed out of trouble", "We decided to avoid trouble by moving to the back of the bus."

Back in the day, that's is exactly what we called "uncle toming". And then to lie and claim that it was because he was in high school when he was actually in College a year before Freedom Summer. Puleeeze!
Co-Signed.

And dude was going to Morehouse, where the Civil Rights Movement was alive and strong, and just decided to do nothing. And now he turns around, looks at folks like John Lewis who put their lives on the line so that *his* back-seat-of-the-bus self could become a CEO and a presidential candidate, and call *them* "brainwashed" and "on the democrat plantation".

Negro please.

I'll say it again, the dude's a grifter. Performances like this are custom designed to enrage every black person in the country, so he can run and tell his republican friends "look, they called me a Tom, they're the real racists, give me a Fox News show."

You deleted your own post about us "hiding behind your skirts" in response Meson's post on Cain being a chicken and ignored my post completely about our contributions to legitimate war efforts going back over many decades. So once again; how much of our budget do you think should go to defending ourselves from the enemies YOUR country is busily making?

Less than 1/10th your population but I guess you think we should be sailing around the world pissing everybody off with equal vigour to you folks eh?

Aaah nuts, why bother, you don't even bother to respond to the Wikipoops rebuttals to your retarded offerings.

Herman Cain's as good as it gets and Paul is too; but alas, you folks will vote for a "Crest smile" guy again.

I am looking forward to reading Herman Cain's new book
he is a great roll model and NOT just for his race, but for mine as well, and for me, personally!
he looks past race, which is so refreshing!!
I am so sick of it, if someone disagrees with Obama, you are a racist, if we like Herman Cain
he is an uncle tom...what blather!!
today we should be hearing about Dr King's dream
not this drivel that spews out of mouths today!!
so all of the ones that want to blame their lot in life on their skin color, then hang on to that crap
as Dr Phil says " how's that working for ya??"
good grief!!

Did you even bother listening to his response?!?! He was in high school at the time. His father told him to try and stay out of trouble and just concentrate on school Why would you want a high school kid to get involved and possibly get himself hurt?
He said if he was older, he probably would have gotten involved. But a high school kid shouldnt have to get involved in those type of things.

You liberals might try actually listening for once.

For such a bigoted interview, Cain did very well. He couldve hit back harder but he didnt. I dont think Obama couldve handled himself that well.

We've covered this already. No one can be AWOL from a reserve unit. AWOL only applies to active duty personnel. Even if he never showed at his reserve unit, he could never be AWOL or even UA without first being activated.
