Is It Too Late to Bring Back Herman Cain?

The Republicans are obviously stuck with the notion that it takes a business whiz to make a good president of the United States.   That's how they wound up with Mitt the Twit Romney as their presidential nominee.

But Mitt, or as Jeremy Clarkson calls him,"the American Borat," is proving to be anything but presidential.    In fact, he's an idiot in magic underwear.

Romney decided to showcase his presidential acumen by visiting Britain, Israel and Poland, three countries decidedly pro-American, and he screwed up at every turn.   He got the British prime minister pissed off with him, the Lord Mayor of London too.   Worse, by far, he got the main presenter of Top Gear,  Jeremy Clarkson, up in arms.

Then, fresh from that profound fiasco, it was off to Israel, where Romney again stepped squarely in it.  At a speech to select Jewish campaign donors, Romney declared Israel's relative success compared to the Palestinian's poverty and squalor was the historically inevitable result of a superior culture and providence.   Romney said that was why per capital GDP in Israel was a healthy $21,000 per annum contrasted with just $10,000 for the average Palestinian.   (the actual figures are $31,000 versus $1,500)   To Romney the fact that the Palestinian territories are occupied and repressed by Israel wasn't part of the equation.   Not surprisingly, Romney was criticized as a racist.

And then off to Poland where Romney met with Lech Walesa, who led the Solidarity movement that topped Polish Communism.   The Solidarity boys and girls, however, wanted no part of the Mormon Moron.

“Regretfully, we were informed by our friends from the American headquarters of (trade union federation) AFL-CIO, which represents more than 12 million employees … that Mitt Romney supported attacks on trade unions and employees’ rights,” Solidarity said in a statement.

Mitt Romney is a walking public relations disaster for the United States.   Like Sarah Palin, he hasn't bothered to study up for the job he's seeking.   And he can't help saying really stupid things, the sort that can leave scars.

But wait.   Remember that Godfather's Pizza guy, Herman Cain?   Is it too late to bring him back?
