The Republican clown-car a.k.a known as their list of potential presidential candidates for 2016 just got a little more crowded this Tuesday.
December 10, 2013

We've got Rand Paul hinting he wants to run this week and now grifter Herman Cain hoping anyone is going to take him seriously if he throws his hat in the ring again in 2016. So who's next? Rick Perry? Donald Trump?

What amazes me is that anyone, even the talking heads on Fox, expects their viewers to believe that this man actually wants to be president after his last campaign, but here we go again with Groundhog Day: Herman Cain: GOP Has ‘Branding Problem,’ Potential 2016 Candidates ‘All White’:

Appearing on Fox’s Happening Now on Tuesday morning, former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain lamented the Republican “branding problem,” specifically pointing to unfocused leadership, a lack of cohesion among factions, and a gaggle of all-white potential candidates for 2016.

Cain agreed with Fox host Bill O’Reilly‘s assessment that the GOP suffers from “no real central authority,” adding several examples of his own. [...]

He then pointed out his belief that the party is unable to establish itself with certain types of voters. “The Republican Party does have a branding problem,” he conceded. “They’ve had one for years, and I have been screaming to the top of my voice to whoever will listen in the Republican Party: You need to fix it; there’s a way to fix it.”

Cain then expressed dissatisfaction with the lack of racial diversity among the party’s leaders:

The RNC sent out a flier to some of its members talking about potential 2016 presidential candidates. Do you know what they had in common? They all have been on TV and in the media a lot, and they were all white. Where was Allen West? Where was Dr. Ben Carson? And have they ruled out the possibility that I might consider another run? That’s part of their branding problem.

They've got a branding problem alright. Cain just hasn't figured out yet that he's part of it.
