Perhaps it’s all a media conspiracy, because it’s tough to imagine a presidential candidate making so many odd statements on the road. Herman Cain went to Iowa this week and stated that he fully expects to win the Republican Presidential nomination because of the black vote.
“The news media and the Republican establishment are stunned!” Cain says in a mailer he sent out to his supporters. “I am now the front runner in the race for the Republican Presidential campaign and the highly regarded Rasmussen poll shows me defeating President Obama.”
Cain goes on to say “as a descendent of slaves I can lead the Republican party to victory by garnering a large share of the black vote, something that has not been done since Dwight Eisenhower garnered 41 percent of the black vote in 1956.”
Cain finishes by comparing himself to Ronald Reagan, right before asking for money.
“It’s true that both Ronald Reagan and I grew up poor, worked hard, and put our faith in God,” he says.
