    This bastard created this and is eating it now and that's just fine with me.

    But part of what impressed me about 08 was the skill of Obama's campaign staff.  The fact that he'd surrounded himself with folks who knew how to do this was a comfort, especially sincehe was up against the "inexperienced" accusation.

    Cain, who has zero experience in politics, doesn't seem to have a staff who can advise him at all.  That's not gonna work.

    •  Not to mention that Obama didn't (5+ / 0-)

      do anything wrong.  In the case of Rezko he admitted it was a bonehead move to engage in a land deal with someone he knew was in legal trouble.  But there wasn't anything wrong with the land deal itself.

      In the case of Rev Wright, it was guilt by association and a media that took words out of context and played it over and over giving the false impression of what he said in the first place.

      But you are right, though it all, Obama handled it masterfully and he is where he is today because he knows how to deal with all this nonsense.

      In Cains case, he appears he did something wrong, but he tried to lie about it.  But typical when you tell a lie you have to keep lying to cover up the first lie and before you know it, you're neck deep in dodo and can't find your way out. And that's what going on with Cain now.  

      We all know he wasn't going to make it to the White House, but now he really has no chance in hell.

    •  Cain always talks up his advisors (1+ / 0-)

      He often brags about how he gets advice from panels of world-renowned experts on every topic.  Always anonymous experts, of course.  His incompetence in dealing with this is astounding.

    •  What staff? (0+ / 0-)

      My understanding is that he doesn't HAVE a campaign staff, which is very odd. Just the Kochs and Crooks (Mr. smoking add WI crook being the front man) advising him and providing bushels of cash.

      The Kochs and Crooks are either astoundingly stupid or Cain isn't paying any attention to them.  It could be both, I suppose.
