Erick Erickson pleaded with Herman Cain in a RedState post on Thursday morning. After stating that he “still believes” that the candidate can both win the GOP nomination and beat President Obama, Erickson turned to the real issues at hand.
“You said you would surround yourself with the best people—the competent people to help you,” Erickson said. Yet, look at the list of recent gaffes by Cain staffers: Block blaming the Perry campaign and retracting his statement, Block lying about verifying the son of a Cain accuser was a Politico reporter, and J.D. Gordon’s disastrous performance on Geraldo’s show.
“Herman, you said you’d surround yourself with the best people and you’ve surrounded yourself with Class A failures,” Erickson writes. “The problems you are facing are problems of campaign staffing. You’ve failed to live up to your own standard of hiring the best people.”
His solution? Cain must fire his staff and “reboot for victory.”
