Right at -- and in basically it's you know what's interesting the blacks on black attacks on.

Everyone has been so restrained up until the time that Herman Cain becomes the front runner.
-- as we saw from the Wall Street Journal poll in the Paper this morning it was.
It is clearly now Herman -- moment to lose the we've had this kind of flirtation with a variety -- GOP candidates have now Herman Cain.
It's coming under the scrutiny that others have and I think the most surprising element as you point out is the reaction the hostility have so many in the black community to Herman -- And you know what this is -- -- -- -- -- play a little secret about the black community and this is -- -- a lot of -- call each -- to tell them exactly what they think of them and this is a -- -- house -- I could use the other word but I want you -- -- January and Garnett tried it really is saying that you're the people of plantation who work.
Sort of kissing up to the white people and the where the real black people who -- actually working in the fields of that's the term that I see I think that.
Professor Cornel West.
He's using basically in.
More intellectual terms -- -- right and Cornel West has been in the front of the issues this week I mean it's not only Herman -- it was also would be -- Wall Street movement.
He had an extraordinary exchange with Bill O'Reilly.
And O -- did that rarest of things which is He challenged.
To give him as specific example of the general point that He had made.
And Cornell west could not do it He just sat there looking as -- deer in the headlights.
Fashion and as if He hadn't been prepared for specific example of that broader point that He was making and I think Cornell west and others do that with Herman Cain.
A much more serious criticism Herman Cain.
And a focus of the press now is the 999 tax reform -- mean that's a legitimate grounds for critique.
Race is not and I think this is going to backfire.
But I think it's a very tough one.
For white politicians to handle.
How do you beat up on a high black critic who's making fun of the most exciting Republican black politician is come along and that.
And that's exactly what McCain said get up plantation correct chipset that I -- -- I know that's -- -- is -- -- governor Chris Christie's endorsement.
Mitt Romney this actually a huge deal even though unless Carl -- -- yesterday.
New Jersey is not exactly be huge you know.
Battleground state it you know like Chris Christie is He -- anyway yeah thank you -- and He.
Is a huge gap to.
For our Romney here who needed this just before the debate that timing was perfect the man was perfect the messages perfect -- even though -- moment is not now as He told us.
In an hour early on press conference to say now.
-- -- He also did endorse a man who is viewed as not quite quote Kosher when it comes to the -- the Christian.
Evangelical movement yet -- conservatives.
Ultra Tea Party people who said -- -- Romney I don't know he's.
To have Chris Christie at that moment say he's my guy can be win for Romney and I think you've seen almost everyone else now.
The money the fund -- at the local level kind of get start to get in line get with the program -- there.
