Media lets Leftist mouthpieces attack Cain’s 9-9-9 plan

  You can tell who the Left fears the most by looking at who the media attacks the hardest.  McClatchy Newspapers — which owns The N&O and The Charlotte Observer — has one of their correspondents tearing into GOP presidential frontrunner Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 tax…
