We can say what we want about Barack Obama’s failed policies… We’ve said plenty here on this blog. Barack Obama is officially the worst jobs president since the Great Depression. Obama is consistently dishonest and annoyingly arrogant. But, despite his many flaws, you can’t take away his blackness. Barack Obama will go down in the history books as America’s first black president. And, for Herman Cain to attack Obama on his authentic black experience is stupid and undisciplined.

Pat Dollard reported:


Cain appeared on Neil Boortz’s show today, and said the following:

Boortz, at the tail end of the interview, asks Cain how he’d do in a debate against Obama:

“It would almost be no contest.”

Ticking off ways he could compete with Obama, Boortz says that Cain would be able to talk about the black experience in America.

Cain’s response: “[Obama’s] never been a part of the black experience in America.”

If Herman Cain wants to be the second black American president he needs to show some restraint once in awhile.
