Herman Cain: Stupid is as stupid does

  1. Seeing Herman Cain admonishing the press on last night’s news spoke volumes to me about his lack of political experience. Regardless of the outcome of the sexual harassment issue, Cain’s mishandling of the media is, IMO, a significant flaw in his qualifications to be president. It is my conviction after watching decades of politics that a president’s handling of the media, and through them, the public, is a critical part of the job. Some would call it “leadership ability”. I would pick Ronald Reagan as the best I’ve seen at that, and probably Jimmy Carter as the most inept.

    Herman Cain has an affable personality, but he also has a temper, and that came through strongly to me. Ronald Reagan he ain’t.

    1. Supposedly his appeal is that he is a businessman, not a politician. But I know plenty of business execs with better “people skills” and management skills than Cain has displayed. Those skills are a big part of that “leadership ability” you mention — in almost any field of endeavor.

... and that's my two cents
