A full week before before the baseless allegations against Herman came out, I tweeted to be prepared for something like it to happen. Well, let me share with you how I believe the next round of attacks will play out.
First of all, I have been saying since March of 2009, that as unbelievable as it may sound, the Republican hierarchy does not want to win this election. That’s right, they do not. We have seen acts of betrayal, and sabotaging in local races across the country, and that is why they’re going to do everything possible to tear down Herman Cain.
It is no accident that these accusations happened when they did. The argument that you are going to hear, that these things aren’t being said about the other candidates, is bogus and the talking heads know it. There is dirt on Newt that is wheeled out everytime he even approaches a political position and it will be brought up again. Perry has already been damaged and there is no chance under the sun that they would let him beat Romney, and Obama will slice, dice, and fillet Romney. The very same reasons that make Romney unacceptable to true conservatives and Tea Party people are what makes him dead meat against Obama. And you can bet if Ron Paul and Rick Santorum had even a remotely distant chance of winning the primary, there would be dirt out on them, including allegations of sexual impropriety. Or do people not remember the ugliness about Rick’s one staff member? Funny how that found it’s way into the topic of campaign conversation the year Planned Parenthood, et al, determined he had to loose.
But back to my point. Very soon you are going to see the heads of groups, that people think are conservative, but are in fact nothing more than corrals to keep votes in, under the guise of being conservative, until the GOP needs them. The heads of said groups will give all pretense of being objective, when in fact they are apparatchiks, doing the bidding of Republican hierarchy. The leadership of said groups have for a very long time enjoyed a level of access, that allows them to believe they are part of the inner circle.
They will go on Fox News and select radio programming making statements about Herman that are intended to keep the buzz going, so that the talk of impropriety is constantly swirling around him – when in reality it isn’t the people, it is the talking heads. The same talking heads who predicted he would be gone by now, who said he had no money, and who said he had no organization. They will set themselves as the arbiters of justice, determined to bring him down, while making it look like they have nothing to do with it.
