On Fridays broadcast of NPRs All Things Considered, host Robert Siegel asked New York Times columnist David Brooks if the surfacing of sexual allegations from the late 1990s reported by Politico last week was the beginning of the end for businessman Herman Cains presidential run.
There was no beginning, Brooks said. He was a TV show that lasted for a little while. Let me stand up for elitist insiders this is a job for professionals. Running for office is a job for professionals. Governing is a job for professionals. What Herman Cain did this lets leave aside the harassment, his handling of this was completely unprofessional. Every amateur candidate knows how to do a better job than this.

Looking around for my popcorn.
This should be interesting.
Brooks is so authoritarian, stuff it “a” hole you may be able to impress your wife or boyfriend but not us. Your one notch above a defacating occupier.
No wonder the American Republic is dying.
The professionals got us into this mess. Time to clean house.
The only real difference between pros and amateurs is that pros win, and amateurs lose.
Cain is winning.
Luke23 talks about how how Pontius Pilate handed Jesus over to Herod. The crowds rumbled for His life as they accused Him of blasphemy. Jesus was innocent but they wanted His blood. They delighted in His stripes! After He breathed His last, His betrayer could no longer live with himself.
I am not saying that Herman Cain compares with the Lord. But I am saying that what is being done to him today is very similar to what mob mentality did to Jesus.
Jesus came to earth to save sinners.And they crucified Him.
Herman Cain, a fine Christian man, entered the fray to the presidency because he wants to save the country. And they are trying to crucify him.
Go Herman Cain!
Does Brooks mean professional liars, con artists, puppets of billionaire leftists, etc....
Sorry that Cain is the un-Obama for you Brooks.
Yes your heiness
look at the good job the professionals have done
McCain is a professional politician. So was Bob Dole. Won every race they ever ran. Except one each.
Unless the political class finally grasp that it is the system itself that is broke, they will never fix it.
That is why all the professional politicians are no go for 2012. They do not even seem to understand the real problem yet.
Like others have said, these ‘professionals’ now have us at a debt level of $15T. That comes out to about $45,000 for every man, woman, and child. It also comes out to $180,000 for a family of 4, which is around what an average house costs today in much of the country. So every family is paying on that ‘government’ house, while dealing with their own debts (often a real house, car(s), credit cards, student loans, etc.). Then add future obligations which is about 7 times the $15T and we’re over $1,000,000 per family that is owed and will be owed.
So David, do we REALLY need more of these ‘professionals’? We’ve already wrecked a decent life for our kids, maybe grand kid - how many more generations should we permit these ‘professionals’ to enslave?
I love how the only right-wingers NPR can even bear to have on the air are Brooks and Frum. Frum at least had the decency to step down from his regular stint , acknowledging that he no longer represents the bulk of conservatives in the U.S.
Pandora’s Box writes:
“To correct a misimpresson, Herman Cain is not bound by Confidentiality in the matter of the agreement between the Association and the complainants, because he was not a signatory. (Very carefully and thoroughly explained by Mark Levin.)
Had he been one, he’d have (or have had) a copy of what was alleged, specifically.
As he doesn’t, because he wasn’t, and as the other two parties have chosen to adhere to the non-disclosure clause, it is OF COURSE ridiculous to expect Cain to attempt to defend himself against vapor-ware charges. This would apply to anyone, in my opinion.
I’m not “in love” with Herman Cain, haven’t decided to support him against all comers, but what is being done to him is unjust. The Left, the stinking Left of all stripes ... “
