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."

Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
Click on the cane, (#2 in rotation.)
Oh, for crying out loud.
How utterly sissy-boy *sensitive* can this flaming libtard get?
OBAMA HIS HERO, ACTUALLY SMOKES CIGS!!!!!!
First they ridiculed Cain, now they are fighting him.
He’s retired, isn’t he? So why should I care what he thinks? Not that I cared when he was a news reader.
Yeah Tom, I’m stunned you guys didn’t vet your candidate AT ALL.
First it was Ice cream... now Cigarettes...
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!
Stuned his beeber!
How about electing a man who personally puts himself at such risk while having the big red button at his disposal?!
Boy, am I relieved that Tom Brokaw is looking out for my best interests. I, of course, am too stupid to do any thinking for myself.
And that is when he knows he has won.
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.
he has no problem with POTUS sneaking around and smoking then?
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.
Yet his guy smoking is O.K. I really despise these Marxists.
Has Tom quit smoking?
Only the old timers know what that is all about.
Mr Brokaw must “stun” more easily than most folks.
Was he stunned when clintin smoked cigars or wen obama smokes cigarettes? Give me abreak Tomstop being so righteous. How many other people are you stunned at becasue they smoke?
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.
His body maybe, but his brain died years ago...
I’m stunned that somene who sounds like he has a mouthful of marbles and can’t pronounce the letter ‘L’ could be an anchor on a network newscast.
Hey Tom, Edward R. Murrow you aren’t (in so many ways).
What’s Tommy going to do when he finds out a couple chicks have claimed to been harassed by Cain? BaaWaaahhhhhhhhh!
He’s delicate. He’s never known anyone who smokes although he knows plenty of communists, theives, liars and whores.
That's okay. He wasn't using it anyway.
I think Peter Jennings would have liked it.
Don’t think it would take much to stun Tom Brokaw. He’s pretty ancient, senile and was never too bright.
First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. Then they fight you. Then you win.
Looks like Cain is at stage III. Looking good.
You are no longer relevant, Tom. Go 'way!
Tom, We know Barry has smoke all his life, you ever said 1 word on that? He won’t admit because we know he hasn’t quit.
Hang it up Tom.
Hey Tom,how about STFU?
Tom Brokaw - what a faggot.
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.
If it was Barry’s ad who by the way really does smoke Brokaw would be laughing his butt off about it.
“Boy, am I relieved that Tom Brokaw is looking out for my best interests.”
But, but, but - wasn’t tommy the one who said “We really don’t know anything about barack hussein obama, now do we?
He’s a lush.
