    For at least two generations, blacks have been taken for granted by Democrats and ignored by Republicans. At times, the administration and black community leaders simply demand our personal allegiance to bad policies simply because we are black.

    The New Hampshire Union-Leader (neé Manchester Union-Leader) endorsed Speaker Newt Gingrich for President in the Republican primary which will be held there on January 10, 2012. This is no small deal for Gingrich because it is a legitimate endorsement from the daily newspaper of the largest city in the state.

    Nominating Mitt Romney is sort of like taking grandma's castor oil. Republicans are dreading the thought of downing their unpleasant-tasting medicine but worry that sooner or later they will have to.

    The prospect of an Obama versus Cain contest in the general election is fascinating to contemplate. In fact, I believe that if Cain is on the ticket, it will make this election the most scrutinized in American history. It will have the promotional value of Don King’s “Thrilla in Manilla” but with the potential for genuine social and cultural change.

    The media feeding frenzy over allegations of sexual harassment by Herman Cain is going to cause a shift in how we view sexual harassment. According to a University of Michigan research study last year, 90 percent of women report being sexually harassed in the workplace.

    City officials from coast-to-coast have finally decided to live up to their responsibilities to enforce the law and have been evicting the Occupy (fill-in-the-blank) squatters from public spaces.

    In what was designed to be a modern day re-play of the Lincoln-Douglass style debate, Newt Gingrich reinforced he’s the best candidate in the GOP field with what appears to be the slimmest odds of capturing the nomination. Newt not only was knowledgeable of the issues but gave practical solutions for solving the country’s problems. Conversely, Cain repeatedly abdicated first responses to questions to Gingrich and kept agreeing with Newt’s answers.

    It’s hard to take a victim seriously when she laughs as she tells her story of “victimhood.” Even though her voice broke briefly during the most explicit parts of the public statement, Sharon Bialek’s claims of sexual harassment by Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain were just another silly spectacle orchestrated by America’s most unscrupulous feminist attorney, Gloria Allred.

    The politics of personal destruction is nothing new. It has been around from the beginning of the country when worse things were said about presidents and presidential candidates than have been alleged against Herman Cain.

    Santorum may be dragging up the rear in the line-up of Republican presidential candidates, but I am grateful to him for being the only candidate who insists that the so-called “social issues” remain an integral, explicit part of his agenda.

    No matter who the nominee becomes, if we can elect a Republican replacement for Barack Obama, America will have a rare opportunity to clean up one of its biggest messes.

    There’s a great 1959 movie starring Peter Sellers called “The Mouse That Roared.” It’s about the “Duchy of Grand Fenwick” and a plot to get economic aid from the United States.

    There are at least five debates scheduled for the entire GOP field in the balance of November, and one “Lincoln-Douglas” style debate between Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain as well, set for tomorrow in Texas.

    As we find ourselves gliding through another week of political headlines, I continue to be amazed by the ream of personal attacks mounted against Herman Cain by black liberals. From calling Cain a “sell out” to “Uncle Tom” because he chooses to be a Republican doesn’t sound like progressive talk to me but rather backwards racist talk.
