Every day, with every soundbite, we seem to be inching closer and closer to an official Herman Cain 2012 presidential run. He’s sure talking like a candidate. Just listen to what he said this week about Barack Obama.

At a recent Tea-Party event in Florida, Cain explained that he’s itching for a chance to prove that there can be a black president that isn’t a “dud.” To prove his firework capability, he delivered a theory as to why the liberal media is ignoring him:

“The liberal mainstream media, notice how they have tried to destroy Sarah Palin, notice how the more popular Michele Bachmann gets, the more they try to destroy her? You want to know why they go after those two ladies more viciously? Because they know that Michele Bachmann or Sarah Palin is going to draw a lot of the women vote away from the Democrat party. They are scared to death of that if they were to run and get the nomination. They are doubly scared that a real black man might run against Barack Obama.”

Shark-Tank.net has the clip (via Weasel Zippers). The relevant comments come around 3:00 below:

Cain, you may remember, made headlines earlier this week when he vowed not to name Muslims as judges or cabinet members.
