Posted on 11/04/2011 7:04:16 PM PDT by Neil E. Wright

On Wednesday evening The Daily Caller spoke to Washington Post Executive Editor Bob Woodward, and Washington Post vice president and former executive editor Ben Bradlee, about Chris Matthews’ new book “Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero” — and about the sexual harassment allegations facing GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain.

"Run for the 'Round House'"

Racism is alive and well in America. And it's in the Demoncrap Party!!!!

In 1857, John Brown told the black slaves "Run to the round house" where he would protect them, during the Battle for Harper's Ferry, prior to the Civil War.

For this Demoncrap toady "newsman" to tell a black American "Run for the Round House" is RACIST on its face, IMO.

What says the FReeper jury?

BRADLEE INTERVIEW EXPOSES LEFT’S UNDERBELLY OF BIGOTRY AND RACISM

When the Daily Caller reporter asked Bradlee what he thought of the accusations against Cain, he said “I think he’s got it coming to him.” Although there hasn’t been any proof, facts, or even names of alleged victims to substantiate the allegations, an indignant Bradlee already judges Cain guilty.

When asked if he had any advice for Cain, Bradlee said, “Run for the roundhouse,” which is an obvious allusion to the John Brown plot to free the slaves at Harpers’ Ferry. Slaves were told to go to the round house for protection and refuge.

The accusations of racism always come from the Democrats.

The real racism is always within the Democrats.

Hopefully Herman Cain will make that obvious to a larger number of Americans.

May we assume that Uncle Ben was one of the leaders in the founding of Politico?

BTW, he put his drunken mitts (pun intended) on the female reporter twice on her shoulders. Looked like sexual harassment to me - - - .

From what I can tell, many Democrats are already in abject fear of exactly this, though most won’t admit it.

Certainly sexual harassment--Bradlee is seen here taking advantage of a working woman trying to do her job.

Evidently his famous "fervor," stoked by some high calibre booze, fired up the old fart's testosterone.

Makes for a classic scene of Beauty and The Beast.

It would be verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry interesting to tally up ALL of the sexual harassment claims against Uncle “Drunken Mitts” Ben. That could take awile - - - - .

Headline is a bunch of crap.

Bradlee putting his arm around the reporterette is old school, but not “pawing.”

Ben Bradlee is a White Liberal. The thought of a black conservative in the White House has him grimacing and mad. He must do what is his calling...destroy the man....to save the cabal...

Time for the Citizens of America to reject this absurd power of the media and take back Liberty and our Nation.

No to Mittens, No to Perry, Yes to Cain.

Bob Woodward-—exposed the huge Watergate scandal that tied this country up for two years in knots in the middle of a Cold War and the wind down to Vietnam.

Now there are multiple scandals more enormous than Watergate ever was, and he is blind as a bat about that.

F’m and that old racist Bradlee too.

OK, viewed it now.

Bradlee is a racist jerk, IMO. He may well also be a lech, but why do these reporterettes have to show up with their cleavage hanging out?

Let’s not act like the left does with reading racism into comments that are not racist. I am pretty sure that Bradlee is using a comment that is analogous to “Run for the hills!” and is basically saying that Cain should just give up his campaign. Not saying Bradlee isn’t racist, but I don’t think this train reference is any evidence of it.

Nothing but a bunch of gadflies and barflies!

One interesting note at the end. When Branlee was asked if he thought the attacks on Cain were racially motivated, he says something to the effect that Cain has accomplished much in his life while ‘being black’, so there is no reason to use race as an excuse for this recent trouble.

One question...Can we assume that because Obama really never accomplished a damn thing until he became president...that this is why the media DOES use race as an excuse for every scandal and screw up that involves Obama?

Inquiring minds want to know........

Are you just being obtuse? What would the self righteous Perrywinkles, Romneybots and Marxist demrats be saying if Mr. Cain’s hands were on the woman’s shoulders?

I think this is the point of that post.

Sex sells almost anything. Generous boob display will almost always succeed in getting a female reporterette an interview.

Surely you’re that naive.

Yes., sex does sell. My point is that such a look is not very professional and doesn’t belong in the workplace. Women who show up in the workplace dressed that way have no business complaining if men ogle them.

Well, how did Sally Quinn get to where she was at? Benji Bradlee should know a thing or two about taking advantage of his female subordinates.

Not to mention Benji hired Janet Cook, who won a Pulitzer Prize for a story she completely made up.

Look up Zibinew Brezinski and a story Mrs. Benji Bradlee wrote about him allegedly zipping his zipper in front of a secretary. It never happened, but Bradlee defended the story.
