THE APPEAL OF HERMAN CAIN

Notable & Quotable

Dorothy Rabinowitz on the appeal of Herman Cain.

  • Dorothy Rabinowitz writing Tuesday in the Journal’s Political Diary e-newsletter:
The pundits busy divining the reasons Herman Cain won that Florida straw poll so handily can’t be blamed—it was a compelling spectacle and a distinctly satisfying one as straw poll results go. To have listened to the candidate’s prescriptions in his speech to the delegates Saturday was to see why. Everything he told the audience had been said, in one way or another, by most of the leading Republican candidates. The difference here was—is—Mr. Cain’s unfailing capacity to speak as though from a core of fire deep inside him. An irresistible strength—as is the mordant humor he brings to the battle.

So it happens that he can deliver a steely jibe about defense cuts (“You don’t put a bull’s-eye on the backs of our men and women in uniform”) or the way America’s wars must be fought (“The mission is victory. . . . If we are not in it to win it, we will not be in it”) and make audiences feel they’d never heard anything so bracing. . . .

An early response to the Florida poll results came from a friend, historian Alan C. Kors, who observed in mock puzzlement: “So, the ‘Tea Party racists’ in a Republican straw poll chose the self-made black Herman Cain—mathematician and successful businessman—son of a cleaning woman and a janitor, as their choice of nominee for the presidency of the United States. Well! What a bigoted group, what a caste society!”

It’s an observation whose point wouldn’t be lost on Herman Cain.

MARCO RUBIO – A MAN WITH A VERY PROMISING FUTURE

Saturday, November 20th, 2010
Published on The Weekly Standard (www.weeklystandard.com)

It Was Rubio’s Tuesday

The most important freshman senator.

Stephen F. Hayes

November 15, 2010,   Tampa

EXCERPT FROM MARCO RUBIO’S SPEECH:  ” I do not believe you have to demonize people in order to win elections. Quite frankly, I think that many of these people in Washington who are making bad policy are generally well intentioned. But I think they have two things wrong: a fundamental misunderstanding of how our economy functions and a fundamental misunderstanding of America’s role in the world. And those two things are what led to these policies.

Number one—The economy functions like this: Jobs are not created by politicians, they are created by people that start businesses or expand existing businesses. And the job of government is to create the environment where doing that becomes easier, not harder. Number two—America’s role in the world is pretty straightforward. The world is safer and it is better when America is the strongest country in the world. (more…)

THE GOP’S RACIAL CHALLENGE

    The GOP’s Racial Challenge

    Republicans can’t win in the future without more nonwhite votes.

    By ZOLTAN HAJNAL

    Lost in the GOP’s euphoria over its landslide midterm victory is the fact that the Republican Party has almost become a whites-only party. Its strategy may win seats now, but it will lose over the long run.

    Republicans won big in 2010 primarily because they won big among white voters. The 60% of the white vote that Republicans garnered last Tuesday is, by most estimates, the highest proportion of the white vote that the GOP has won in any national election since World War II.

    Relying on white support is not a new strategy for the party. In 2008, 91% of the votes that John McCain received in his presidential bid came from white voters.

    Voters at a polling station during the closely contested election between Democratic Sen. Harry Reid and Republican challenger Sharron Angle last month.

    The problem for Republicans is two-fold. First, whites may currently be the majority but they are a declining demographic. The proportion of all voters who are white has already declined to 75% today from 94% in 1960. By 2050, whites are no longer expected to be a majority of the U.S. population. (more…)

    REPUBLICAN TIM SCOTT OF SOUTH CAROLINA OFFERS HOPE IN BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS

    Black Republicans offer hope after Barack

    Obama’s failures on race

    The Obama presidency has not led to a post-racial America, says Toby Harnden, but black Republicans in Congress could help break down barriers

    The Obama presidency has not led to a post-racial America, says Toby Harnden, but black Republicans in Congress could help break down barriers

    Campaigning a few miles from Fort Sumter, where the first shots of the Civil War were fired in 1861, Tim Scott described last week how he was born into poverty and a broken home, much like Barack Obama.

    “My dad was gone by the time I was seven,” the black candidate for the House of Representatives told a mixed group of students at Fort Dorchester High School in North Charleston. “I was flunking out of high school. I failed geography, civics, Spanish and English. When you fail Spanish and English, you are not bilingual, you are bi-ignorant.”

    But the conclusions that Scott, 45, drew were very different from those of Obama. When he was 15, a man who ran a Chick-fil-A fast-food restaurant taught him “that there was a way to think my way out of the worst conditions”. Scott went on to became a small businessman and a proud “conservative Republican”.

    Barring a cataclysmic upset, Scott will be elected to Congress on November 2nd. There, he will be a ferocious opponent of Obama, to whom he gives a withering “failing grade” for his presidency. (more…)
