Cain didn't enlist and he wasn't drafted and if you were around at the time you remember that most eligible men either enlisted to were drafted except those who went to Canada, hid behind college doors, or had family ties to a politician or one of the rich. Herman Cain didn't even bother to join the national guard. However, it seems he got his masters degree courtesy of the US Navy when he worked there as a civilian. He appreciated what his government had done for him some much that upon receiving his master degree he quit the government job and went to work for Coke-a-Cola.
Herman Cain is just another corporate puppet wannabe who will continue to fill the pockets of he wealthy, and his own, at the expense of the working class. In Cain's words, "if you don't have a job and you are not rich it is your fault." This shows Cain has a weak mind and a greedy heart. We can't all be a doctor or lawyer some of us must settle for being the working people like the trash collectors, farm labor, or general labor. What's wrong with that? All these jobs need to be done but the wealthy, people like Cain, believe that no one has to be a janitor and it is their fault they are not rich. What about the blind and the disable? Our veterans who return home to find no jobs and end up in the streets to the tune of 50% veteran homeless and 30% unemployed. Their fault Mr. Cain???
I have never seen a person more in need of a glass belly button that Herman Cain.
That was awesome dude.

And, you missed the point.

I was responding to someone who stated that the 'left' hates black republicans. From where I sit, I don't see too much love coming from the right either.
Why do you suppose that is?
The distinctive difference in ideology held by politicians the likes of Cain, West, Keyes, etc... from the Marxist Progresssivism spouted by the like of the average CBC member. The CBC hasn't exactly opened its arms to West since he joined have they?

Conservatives point out these ideological differences constantly yet the far left only plays the race card. They are unable to detatch themselves from identity politics.

I am leaving out many from this cast of characters, the crazy, sniveling, crying, fear mongering Glenn Beck who spent a couple of years there ginning up fake conspiracy theories.

But Lawrence O'Donnell is over the top?
All true, and O'Donnell asks real questions based on the very real past decisions made by these politicians. Questions that their lackey's on FOX would never dare broach, but they will spend countless hours discussing someones religion, someones birthplace, and other nonsense.

They can dish it out, but they sure as hell cannot take it

Fact is Kerry enlisted and then went before congress and called his fellow american soldiers rapists and savages.

Q: Why don't we have more people in the media like Lawrence O'Donnell?
A: Those in power don't want people like him asking tough questions.

I wouldn't have thought someone would be able to make O'Donnell look so level headed.

The "swiftboat" program did not exist when Kerry enlisted. When it was created Kerry did everything he could to get reassigned. When that failed, he faked three injuries and used regulations to get an early discharge.

If O'Donnell had any real credibility he would be working for a real network. MSNBC is the equivalent of sitting at the "card table" during Thanksgiving dinner.

Again, these were not tough questions served up by O'Donnell, they were just spins of his lies and misinterpretations of the facts. He wasn't talking to Cain about any legitimate points especially the one on the military. Cain served his country the best way he could by doing ballistics engineering.

The self proclaimed "socialist" O'Donnell had his life handed to him on a silver platter. Private school, Harvard and yet he has the audacity to invent things about Cain. What an absolute moron.

Still, O'Donnell and his tactics are the best thing for the right wing. By clutching at straws the way he did, he only reveals how desperate and clumsy everything on the left is these days. Keep it up, Lawrence. We need Liberal Elite idiots like you to take down your own causes and reveal the true demons that you are.
