Brokaw and Schieffer can spare me their sanctimony. If they object to smoking so vociferously why didn’t they object when Barack Obama lit up on the campaign trail in 2008?
Well, we know the answer to that. Obama could have smoked four packs a day and neither Brokaw or Schieffer would have said a negative word. The only reason Brokaw and Schieffer are complaining is because Herman Cain is resonating with people and he makes their accusations of racism look stupid. They are afraid that Cain can beat Obama and are now left scrambling to find another line of attack. If Mark Block had taken a sip of Coke, Brokaw would have called it a great health hazard while Schieffer would have said it was no laughing matter.
Brokaw and Schieffer should blow smoke elsewhere.
