The Cain Train Rolls On

[1]How bad is the lame stream media?   The lame streamers think the President’s opinion of on our closest allies and the the only democracy in the Middle East is somehow private, from Ynetnews [2]:

According to a Monday report in the French website “Arret sur Images,” after facing reporters for a G20 press conference on Thursday, the two presidents retired to a private room, to further discuss the matters of the day.

The conversation then drifted to Netanyahu, at which time Sarkozy declared: “I cannot stand him. He is a liar.” According to the report, Obama replied: “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!”

[…]

A member of the media confirmed Monday that “there were discussions between journalists and they agreed not to publish the comments due to the sensitivity of the issue.”

He added that while it was annoying to have to refrain from publishing the information, the journalists are subject to precise rules of conduct.

Hat tip and reax, Fausta [3]:

“Precise rules of conduct”: don’t embarrass some on vital Middle East issues, but make sure to report that Herman Cain asked a woman out to dinner [4] and stuck someone with a bill [5].

More reax, Allah Pundit, Hot Air: [6]

Here’s the original story at Arret sur Images [7]. I’ve never heard of that site so I have no sense of how credible it is. (French readers, repondez s’il vous plait.) The idea of The One badmouthing Bibi is completely plausible, though. Remember when he allegedly humiliated Netanyahu [8] at the White House at a meeting in 2010, and then when Netanyahu humiliated O right back with that lecture in the Oval Office [8] back in May about Israel’s borders? There’s no love lost here, although electoral concerns (if nothing else) will keep Obama a very willing partner [9] with Israel for the next year. Philip Klein [10] asks a good question, though:

 

While the lamers bend over backwards to ignore the foreign policy gaffes of Dumbo, b/k/a Barack Obama, they are obsessed with Herman’s dating, from Ann Althouse [11]:

This new allegation isn’t a claim of sexual harassment, but the active pursuit of relationships with women. Does it fit a pattern in the allegations? I would distinguish the allegations — reported without names and details — that involved his employees. These have to do with making the workplace different for women, a species of sex discrimination in the legal doctrine.

The incident described by Sharon Bialek, like this new one, occurred outside of the workplace, and might be construed as dating. The Bialek allegation involves aggressive groping, which is missing in this new allegation. And it involves a statement that suggests that her effort to enlist his help in finding a job depends on her sexual compliance. So the Bialek allegation has more negative elements than this new one.

While liberal white politicians get a free pass to rape and grope, the libtards remain obsessed with conservative black men’s dating. The gist of the allegation against Clarence Thomas was crude dating methods.
