Article first published as Herman Cain and GOP on Technorati.
Herman Cain officially announced he was running as a Republican for the 2012 presidential race. Already he’s meeting resistance from the GOP establishment. He is catching criticism from the likes of Tim Pawlenty and Karl Rove, who are dismissing his campaign as “entertainment.” Mr. Cain is the former Deputy Chairman of Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and CEO of Godfathers Pizza.
While Herman Cain is wildly popular in many conservative circles, he is being dismissed by establishment conservative pols. This is not surprising given the backlash at having an incumbent Black president and the acrimony surrounding Michael Steele’s departure as Chairman of the Republican National Committee [RNC].
