    After watching the first GOP presidential debate there are two things I’m certain of: that Obama is much more beatable than what the media is saying, and Herman Cain is a serious contender.

    I’ve been thinking about the implications of an articulate black conservative against the nation’s first liberal presidential election would entail. With the party that put forth questions of ‘is Obama black enough?’, is going to say about a black conservative. Here’s a preview: from the award winning news site Alternet:



    As you know, I find black garbage pail kids black conservatives fascinating not because of what they believe, but rather because of how they entertain and perform for their White Conservative masters.

    Herman Cain’s shtick is a version of race minstrelsy where he performs “authentic negritude” as wish fulfillment for White Conservative fantasies.

    Black History Month is Herman Cain Playing the Race Minstrel for CPAC « SpeakEasy


    A Cain nomination would undoubtedly invoke the left’s bigotry and hate. I think those insults and extreme comments would far outweigh the extreme minority of McCain supporters made about Obama. The left would viscously attack Cain, and I know they will not hesitate to use his race against him. Hell, I could see Sharpton calling him an ‘Uncle Tom’ publicly, someone would. He would most likely receive the most black votes of any GOP presidential candidate. The debate would be epic.

    I am predicting 2012 to be the single most interesting presidential election in American history.

    He'll be called an Uncle Town or a house negro, and attacked mercilessly by caring, compassionate and non-racist liberals!!!

    And of course- stupid.

    Cain is a good man, and should get about 20% of the black vote.

    I sincerely hope that black people pay attention to the liberal media this time around, so they can learn that they must walk in lock step with the party or else. Maybe some will learn that they are nothing more than to tool for power for the dnc.

    You are seriously underestimating the ignorance of the voting public.

    Chalk another win for The Bam.

    Why would you assume that he would get 20% of the Black vote?

    I think Obama has adequately proven he's unqualified...

    Although I'm fairly sure he'll be able to shake down the big corporations, his favorite lobbyists, the paid off unions but not much from the average American people, he's pretty well screwed them over...and over.. and over... etc..

    He's completely failed on most of his campaign promises...

    Of course Obama insn't unbeatable.

    Being the encumbant does give him the edge though.

    It the economy is still in the toilet he won't win re-election. Just ask Carter and Bush I.

    He's all black and talks like a preacher [at times], through in a few black conservatives, and I ballpark 20% of the black vote, should he run against Obama.

    He won't make it. The cries that he's a token, an Uncle Tom, house ******, etc etc, will be more than most can bear, once the left moves in on his family....
