Rush Limbaugh Calls Politico Hit Piece on Herman Cain an “Unconscionable Racially Charged Attack”

Rush Limbaugh discussed the horrible smear against conservative Herman Cain today on his show.

The Right Scoop
has the video.

RUSH: Let’s do this Herman Cain story. I started out by talking about Clinton, and Bill Clinton must be laughing himself sick over this hit job from The Politico on Cain. And Cain now has denied it, without question. He has categorically denied any of this. But a story like this involving Bill Clinton, why, Clinton would be getting high fives, millions of dollars of campaign contributions from the NAGs. If this story were about Bill Clinton, the left would be circling the wagons doing everything they can to fend off the charge. I mean this story is a joke that can only truly be appreciated by Clinton and other sexual predators. The sources, which include the recollections of close associates and other documentation, describe episodes that left the women upset and offended.

“These incidents include conversations allegedly filled with innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature, taking place at hotels during conferences, at other officially sanctioned restaurant association events and at the association’s offices. There were also descriptions of physical gestures that were not overtly sexual but that made women who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable.” What the hell could that be? Need help here. What physical gestures that were not overtly sexual, what could they be that would make you uncomfortable that would fall in line with sexual harassment? What in the world could they be? (interruption) Well, that would be overtly sexual if he did that. There were descriptions of physical gestures that were not overtly sexual. Licked his lips with his tongue while looking at them. Well, dream on. “Made women who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable and that they regarded as improper in a professional relationship.” That appears to be it. That appears to be it.

Now, we don’t have any evidence of ice packs on a busted lip as we had with Juanita Broaddrick and Bill Clinton. Yeah, Bill Clinton and Juanita Broaddrick, “Hey babe, you better put some ice on that, you’re bleeding at the lip.” We don’t have any of that. This story appears to me to be a close relative of the hit job that the Washington Post is doing on Marco Rubio. It’s not a news story. This is gutter partisan politics, and it’s the politics of minority conservative personal destruction, is what you’ve got here. Rubio and Cain unfit to lead, don’t you see. We cannot have a black Republican running for the office of president. We can’t have one elected. We can’t have an Hispanic.

Much more here.

    I’m sorry, so what’s racially charged about reporting– accurately– that the association Cain worked with settled over sexual harassment allegations?

    My guess ?
    Cain chomping a peach

  • lucy

    This is nothing compared to what they did to Palin. Next, the left will say Cain’s children aren’t really his. They will be totally shameless.. bottom feeders.

  • http://none tommy mc donnell

    if its true he will be qualified to run for president as a democrat.

    Wanna bet these 2 women restaurant workers are SEIU members in good standing.

    #2 – What would reporting unnamed sources’ stories about Obama’s high school cocaine sales, or criticizing his destructive left-wing policies, have to do with racism?

    I bet the source’s name begins with Anita Hill.

    The lying liberal media would not air or publish accusations against Obama based on unnamed sources. They would destroy the source.

    Mr. Cain is a self-made man; a Republican; a Christian; and a conservative.

    This is not about race – BARF.

  • workingclass artist

    I think race is being overplayed here on both sides and it’s kinda obvious.

  • regularguy

    So a couple of women were allegedly made “uncomfortable?” Maybe they could have addressed Mr. Cain immediately and directly, or otherwise they maybe could shut their own passive-aggressive double-standard/entitlement demanding pieholes? Politico might just find themselves 20 years behind the victimology power curve. The rest of us out here are fed up with crybaby victimologists who thrive on destroying the lives or careers of others just because they’re “uncomfortable.” Either put up specific charges or just shut the hell up. Even then, grow up and learn you’re entitled to shut the hell up about being “uncomfortable.”

    The left is correct. I would vote for Rush for president. I swear I would follow him off the face of the earth in a cult happening. He has almost perfect radar.

    As for Politico, I have read arguments pro and con if they are left or right leaning. Huh???
    They actually started out almost fair and balanced. Then they went over the cliff. Now I call them the dregs of the MSM/Dems. They are so bias that they must wear signs pleading for their journolist bros to let me, let me, let me start this one.

    I do not care if Cain made a gesture or not. I mean, how do you top Obama shooting the bird at everyone he dislikes???

    How do the MFM dig up anything when they are still looking for Obama’s grades? Or who funded that trip when he was 20?

    I love Herman Cain. I saw a clip today when he was naming names (yes, ole Barney Frank and Dodd). Straight up. Then I think he sang a little. Yep. The GOP can’t buy what he puts out. Good for Cain.

    Jeff, if you don’t realize what a racist, scummy political smear this is, you’re right.. You are sorry.

    Take a look at what they’re trying to do to Marco Rubio. He’s another one who does not know his place.

    Libs love minorities as long as they vote Democrat.

    Hey Jeff, how do we know these allegations are “accurate” as you say? The source is undocumented in the story by the reporter, that’s just sloppy journalism.

    Having been sued five times, I can authoritatively say that a settlement is waaay cheaper than fighting a suit, from an insurance company perspective. Even when there is no merit to the case insurance companies will settle to make the nuisance to go away.

    Apparently, a couple of women figured there were some deep pockets involved, so they sued, the insurance company settled, and a confidentiality clause was included. Unless the reporter can cite sources and name names, then this story is exactly what Rush called it, “a hit piece.”

  • Man In A Boat

    Probably more fallout of the Tailhook era.

  • Tom63010

    TO some of the people making comments that are wondering why this is racist. This is racist in the political scope of things. The Democrat Party destroys any black man who is no in their camp.

  • Jeff

    American Patriot, what in god’s name do you do that’s resulted in FIVE lawsuits???

    How many people here have read the whole piece? Did you see the portions where a number of former employees and associates vouch for Cain’s good name and character?

    Whether the women involved were telling the truth is a question we’ll never answer but I fail to see how this is in any way racially motivated. This would be a good story for any candidate.

    PS there was no need for reporting anonymous allegations of Obama cocaine use– he admitted as much in his book.

  • Dittogirl

    #12 That is so true, my hubby works at a dealership and have had lawsuits against them that crack me up at how unreal and useless they are, but to pay the big bucks to the attorneys usually costs more than the settlement with the freaks is.

    That is a sad reality in our country. But in my opinion its way past time for loser pays. Then these companies would have a fair shot of winning useless lawsuits like the lemon laws, when the people buy and sign about 5 diff documents that it is as as is sale. There are reasons that dealerships sell them as high mileage, etc..but they sell them super cheap. And then the person files a lawsuit and gets them free,

    The dims don’t like to say anything racial about conservative blacks, so they trash them with sexual accusations and innuendos. Look what they did to Clarence Thomas. The media is still talking about this cr*p. They will not let Anita Hill fade away. They bring her into the limelight every so often just to twist the knife they stuck in Thomas’ back. And isn’t it amazing that the media can go back decades to find some obscure stories about conservative candidates like some stupid rock that was painted over on his father’s property when he was a very young man, but couldn’t find out anything about obama’s current anti American friends or anything else. Such hypocrites. I really, really hate the media and don’t believe anything they print or say. They are all in this effort to bringdown this country. I give no dim the benefit of a doubt that they don’t know what the dim party has become. If they don’t know they are enablers. If they do know they are traitors. And I believe most of them are traitors.

  • Jeff

    Anonymous sources are irrelevant in this circumstance. It’s true. The Cain campaign admits it’s true. We can question whether the charges reflect on his leadership abilities but there’s no question whether a settlement over sexual harassment allegations was reached. It was.

  • Nosmo

    The Democrats are the party of slave owners, secession, KKK, lynching, and segregation. Keeping black people feeling comfortable living in poverty is how the Dem politicians keep their votes.

  • Jeff

    Nosmo, explain to me please how it’s possible for African Americans to be complicit in some grand Democratic conspiracy without being aware of it? How are 90% of African Americans incapable of understanding what’s really in their best interest?
