Here is the ex-Fed bank chairman's sensitive take on the unemployment problem.

#7 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain recently declared that anyone that is unemployed or poor in America should only blame themselves….
“Don’t blame the big banks. If you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself.”

But not nearly as much as Bill Clinton, or JFK, or Andrew Wiener, or Gary Condit or John Edwards, or Al Gore with the masseuse, or Gary Hart.

Need I go on?

Got to watch those rocks in that glass house of yours...

And yours! The stories are JUST coming out about Cain and as far as I know, the women have not spoken yet. It could get very ugly (or not, time will tell). If we are flinging out names of those that have done shady stuff, how about Craig, Vitter, Sanford (although he wasn't necessarily creepy, just a philanderer), Ensign. etc?

oh for heavens sake: no one knows what, if anything Cain really did. Your even starting this thread shows how hard it is for liberals to get over there are a few conservative black people out there. First you bring up a story that is old news, then you throw Clanence Thomas into your response and now you are talking about something that has nothing to do with jobs or even men who mistreat women.

You are responsible for you.

The federal government guaranteed mortgages and home ownership climbed to an all time high, which caused a housing bubble and over inflated housing prices.

Now that the bubble has burst, the giddiness which came from home ownership has turned to anger....mostly turned against "the fat cat bankers" who, in reality, were just following the marching orders from the dems.

Government should allow the free market to be set free. Had the government not forced the banks to lend to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay, we would not be in the position that we find ourselves.

The left's answer....more government.

Herman Cain is exactly right, regardless of how many people he offends.

Don't like it, don't vote for the man.

Two Words

Barney Frank

Allowing a gay prostitution service to run out of his own apartment.

Democratic Rep. Eric Massa

Resigned for groping male staffers

You want to play the "gay" card you have your share

If its true, he should get out of the race. Both parties have their share of bad behaving individuals. Because some other republicans have done this kind of stuff in the past does not make Cain any more or less guilty of anything.
