This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Raising Cain

Politico and Real Clear Politics are in full bloom with multiple scandal stories about Herman Cain.  It seems obvious that the scandal was engineered by a poliical rival or rivals in co-ordination with the left wing media. 

    Ambiguous accusations, hurled without evidence of wrong doing constitute a sly, slickly contrived fishing expedition.  The purveyors of scandal throw out the amorphous charges in hopes that the accused will expose some previously unknown vulnerability in a mad scramble to defend his reputation. 

    I have no clue whether the Perry campaign was behind the scandal stories or not. I would be more inclined to suspect Obama & Romney but the recent hiring of a past Cain consultant by the Perry campaign seems to light the path in that direction. 

    My unfounded opinion is that Pawlenti & Perry are stalking horses for Romney, their mission being to suppress less popular rivals, suck away their media 'oxygen' and discourage other wall flowers from sprinting into the race.

    Playing the scandal card carries some risks.  If the player is identified, he will be tainted with a reputation for mud slinging, losing considerable moral authority in the process.  If the victim is able to deflect the charges, the increased media attention may prove beneficial rather than detrimantal to his campaign.  If nothing else, it will lead to increased name recognition.

    For the true believers who share the candidate's ideology, scandal mongering can serve to cement their attachment to the candidate, so that they will redouble their campaign contributions and efforts.  There may be blowback against the Romney & Perry campaigns even if they were not the source of the scandalous story line.

    Mark Levin had a good rant about the scandal Tuesday, from a lawyer's view point.  Tonight he opened the show with another excellent rant about the scandal.
