Tom Brokaw "Stunned" By Herman Cain's Smoking Ad, Lambasts 9-9-9 plan (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | October 30, 2011 | RealClearPolitics

Tom Brokaw is shocked and stunned at Herman Cain's web ad that features his Chief of Staff smoking a cigarette.

Brokaw did not appreciate the cigarette because of the damage smoking does to one's body. Brokaw even went so far as to say Cain should rename his 9-9-9 plan to include cancers and diseases one gets from smoking.

"I must say on the Cain thing, I was stunned by that ad that he did with his campaign manager, ending up smoking a cigarette. Which, in my judgment, is one of the great health hazards in America in terms of lethal diseases, and also the costs of it all. I think that maybe 9-9-9 stands for get nine months to live with lung cancer, nine months to live with emphysema, nine months to live with coronary artery disease. I can't imagine why they thought that was an effective image," Brokaw said on "Meet the Press."

He’s retired, isn’t he? So why should I care what he thinks? Not that I cared when he was a news reader.

What a fairy.

The news business used to be filled with real men that smoked like an active volcano.

And they actually did a better job!

Tom, Tom, Tom,

You ever get close enough to the Obamaloon to smell him, you dork?

Guess that -as an undereducated lib- you prefer the “look the other way” approach when it’s a fellow cretin, eh?

Another bump in the polls compliments of the mainstream media. Trivial irritation of the Lib media=favorability with Conservatives.

And how many homosexual males die from sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDs? Does Tommie Brokaw advocate closing all the gay bars and bath houses? I’m guessing he’s silent on this issue.

Also, has Brokaw been to a Hollywood movie in the 20 years or so? Virtually every major movie star puffs away on the silver screen.

"...and also the costs of it all."

Smokers may require more health care while they're alive, but they draw less in pensions and Social Security benefits because they die earlier. Net-net they pay for themselves. More, because of the huge taxes on cigarettes they now pay.

"I can't imagine why they thought that was an effective image," Brokaw said on "Meet the Press."

Here's a clue, Tom.

Cain smoking ad brings flood of donations
Cain has brought in nearly $2 million within the last week alone, nearly doubling his weekly returns earlier this month,...

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Don’t think it would take much to stun Tom Brokaw. He’s pretty ancient, senile and was never too bright.

What's that saying from Ghandi?

First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. Then they fight you. Then you win.

Looks like Cain is at stage III. Looking good.

And Mr. Brokaw, when will you condemn obama for smoking in the oval office?

The American people are starting to see the hypocracy. Many will never see it because they’re brainwashed. But hopefully enough will see it.

As for me, I’m voting for Cain even if he’s not on the ballot. Nobody will ever again tell me who I must vote for.
