Friday on “Fox and Friends,” former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain sa that while he is grateful for the past work of the NAACP, the organization has “lost its relevance.”
“It’s looking for its relevance in all of the wrong places. There used to be a war. And we won that war on civil rights. Are there some battles? Yes, there will always be. I believe that their new focus should be economic development, but they have not made that transition, so they have simply lost their relevance,” Cain said.
Cain blamed a “double standard” for the negative reaction toward Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during his speech at the NAACP annual convention Wednesday:
“There’s a double standard, just like there was a double standard all the way back when President Obama was Candidate Obama … because many people in that audience are liberal-thinking and they are basically overlooking the failure of this president and this administration.”
