Where is the world does MSNBC  find these “people?” To call them analysts makes about as much sense as saying someone who just got their learners permit is qualified to drive in the Indy 500. We are hearing the musings of extremely desperate people sticking to the talking points they were told to follow.
Perhaps since they represent the party that hasn’t had a rational idea or plan since Woodrow Wilson they miss the concept that he is liked and admired by clear thinking voters for his ideas and plans.  To call this racist behavior shows exactly how once again, bereft of any plan they are so they pull out the trusty race card.

During an online production of NBC’s Meet the Press this week, Democratic congressman Elijah Cummings of Maryland said white voters support Cain to show they aren’t racist. “I think when [members of the Tea Party] can vote for a Herman Cain and hear him say the things that he says they feel like, ‘Well, you know, I can, I support this guy and…so it shows that I’m not racist and I’m supportive,’” Cummings told host David Gregory.

Liberal comedienne Janeane Garafalo told Current TV host Keith Olbermann earlier this month that Cain is popular with Republicans because it “hides the racist element” of the party.
