It was always difficult to take Herman Cain seriously as a presidential candidate. Cain acted more like a retiree who wanted to hit the road in his RV, visit historic places and perhaps work part time.
Consider this from MSN Money in a story about RV retirees:
More than 1 million Americans have pulled up stakes, sold homes and hit the road in RVs to travel, see family and even work part-time. It's easier than ever in an age of cell phones and satellites, but is it the lifestyle for you?
Cain certainly pulled up stakes and hit the road in his RV. And he even worked part-time, selling books and, well, running for president.
And where did Cain become a hit? Florida, of course. Home to more than its share of retirees and RVs.
We have a long proud tradition of folks retiring early and taking off in their recreational vehicle to see the country.
Some people take this type of travel very seriously. They spend years on the road traveling all around the country meeting new people.
Now, doesn't that sound like Cain.
Our successful businessman and less successful candidate surely was wondering what to do with his life when he turned 65 last year.
At Crowley Political Report, we don't think so. Cain may not have needed the money to supplement his Social Security but he surely wanted a glamourous part-time job.
So why not get an RV, write a book, and run for president.
Now to be fair, Cain never became a serious RVer. He didn't spend a lot of time looking for a good spot at the local campgrounds.
And we wonder if he spent any time driving the bus himself.
Herman Cain is home talking to his wife about the future of his presidential campaign. In a matter of hours we'll know whether she has pulled the plug on his part time job.
We hear there are great discounts at state and national parks.
So to answer MSN's question - yes Herman Cain, this is the lifestyle for you.
