On CNN, Herman Cain decided that blacks have been brainwashed into voting Democratic:

Uh, huh. Blacks have been brainwashed. Got it.

Ok, let's buy this theory.

Let's go back in history and see what happened the last time a candidate talked about "brainwashing":

(gets interesting at 0:40, the brainwashing statement comes at 1:30, there is also part of the interview with George Wallace in 1972 - starting at 3:05 - Wallace is very unfriendly, as he usually was)

Yes, that is George Romney, Mitt Romney's father. He was born in Mexico in 1905, but no one questioned his citizenship in 1967-1968. He claimed that he was "brainwashed" in Vietnam and shortly thereafter, his campaign fell like a stone.

From WIKI:

"Nixon's first challenger was Michigan Governor George W. Romney. A Gallup poll in mid-1967 showed Nixon with 39%, followed by Romney with 25%. However, Romney told a news reporter that he had been "brainwashed" by the military and the diplomatic corps into supporting the Vietnam War; the remark led to weeks of ridicule in the national news media. Since he had turned against American involvement in Vietnam, Romney planned to run as the antiwar Republican version of Eugene McCarthy.[SUP][18][/SUP] However, following his "brainwashing" comment Romney's support faded steadily, and with polls showing him far behind Nixon he withdrew from the race on February 28, 1968.[SUP][19]"

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Perhaps Mr. Cain can learn a little from history and see that claims of brainwashing probably do not help a campaign.

how dumb is that? You can easily make that comment regarding many republican voters. They have been brainwashed into supporting politicians that work against their interests, keep lining the pockets of hte rich and hurting the middle class. Brainwashed into thinking only democrats are responsible for deficit spending, when the republicans have been just as guilty, if not more. Or htat "tax cuts create jobs".

I was rather young maybe highschol age when Daddy Many Wives was "running " for POTUS and I recall just a mirco word or two about Daddy being born in Mexico but there was no Birther movement, no screaming since his paents were both American citizens who happened to be living abroad at the time that DADDY Many Wives was born to one of the mothers or was the term "sister mothers" ?

But no BFD after all Mexico isn't in Africa is it ?
