Bill Press Doesnt see difference Between Herman Cain and Jerry Sandusky
Edited on Sat Nov-12-11 04:39 PM by MadBadger
I think this is one of the dumbest thing I've seen anybody say yet on these two issues...

I wonder what Herman Cains supporters say about what happens in Penn State, Press said on his program Friday, suggesting that Republicans who dont believe the accusations against Cain are defending him because he happens to be a conservative politician Republican running for president. You cant touch him, but the media can go after Sandusky whats the difference? Theres no difference, really.

He goes on...

We have maybe sexual assault in the case of Sandusky, he argues, but assuming what Sharon Bialek says is true, that would also be assault,"

3. Both have been accused of sexual assault, although Sandusky's

victims were children.

4. What Cain has done is criminal, it does not sink to the level of Sandusky

5. Why? Are women less victims because they're adults?

Or are women supposed to just take it and shut the fuck up? Or are pedophiles different from adult men who think they have the right to threaten grope and force sexual favors just because they can?

7. no because
what sandusky did is by law worse than what Cain is alleged to do, both in severity and because of the age of the victims. You know two things can both be very wrong but not be equivalently so.

6. oh come on... There is a huge difference
While they are both sexual predators, only one has been arrested, the other is the repug front runner for President.

8. Maybe JoPa could become Pope ...
I mean, the current Pope helped prevent child molesters from being punished ... or even acknowledged ...
