Cain Campaign Confusion

NYT takes a swipe at the 9-9-9 man:

If Herman Cain feels his management skills are up to any challenge, some of his former staff members think he should have started with the disorder in his own campaign.

Mr. Cain has hardly shown up in New Hampshire and Iowa, they said, spending the bulk of his time on a book tour through the South. He occasionally mishandled potential big donors or ignored real voters. His campaign churned through the small staff; last week, his campaign announced the appointment of the veteran campaigner Steve Grubbs, his third Iowa leader in four months.

Even bumper stickers have been hard to come by
And then there was that e-mail to the staff about traveling in a car with Mr. Cain: “Do not speak to him unless you are spoken to,” the memo said.

“I found it odd,” said a former staff member who liked to prep Mr. Cain for appearances while driving. The aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, quit not long afterward, citing the e-mail as one of the deciding factors.


  1. I guess the MSM is starting to realize that Mr. Cain is not really running for president. He's building name recognition in order to sell books.

    His campaign is a marketing campaign, not a political campaign. Even his tax plan was developed and named with marketing principles in mind.

  2. me, this sounds just about right for qualifying as a Presidential candidate...(disorder, mismanagement, perched on a pedestal)...

    What's the problem with the NYT?

  3. Cain is just following the "Shaft" model of campaigning where he asks the questions as role of "The Man" and every one else has to "shut your mouth", cause he's got the "real" black experience going on.


  4. She don't lie, KochCain.
