Damaging? Hardly. Its a political smear and not going anywhere. All he has to do the shut it down is say “it depends on what the meaning of “is” is.”

Here’s another good quote from the 90’s, just for old times sake:

“Last time I saw (Clinton) he was swinging on the chandelier in the Oval Office with a brassiere around his head, Viagra in one hand and a Bible in the other, and he was torn between good and evil.” —Congressman James Traficant, Jr. (D-Oh.)

This has Romney’s fingerprints all of it.
Perry likes Cain.

Cain was the beneficiary of the support Perry lost when he torpedoed his own campaign. If Cain were gone Perry thinks he would get his support back.

Remember...in spite of Anita Hill, Clarence Thomas was appointed and STILL IS a Supreme Court justice. And a good one too.

I think Judge Thomas actually became a better judge as a result of his attempted high-tech lynching.

One of the few worthwhile things Arlen Specter ever did as a U.S. Senator was to help get him through it.

Judge Thomas is going to be an excellent resource to help Herman Cain get through this as well.

Since when did anyone making an accusation like that end up agreeing to a settlement where she paid his legal bills and had to leave the company?

Maybe she was rebuffed and decided to exact her revenge? Like that as never happened before.

I wouldn’t rule out Perry having a hand in this. He’s competing with Cain for conservative votes. He’s scrapped the bottom of the barrel in Texas campaigns, I’m sure nothing would stop him from doing it at the national level.

This was pretty inevitable. It’s the way the Dems killed Newt Gingrich and nearly killed Clarence Thomas: unfounded charges where the mere charge is sufficient.

Cain likes Romney and had supported him in the past and probably wants to be his VP, so while this may be from the Romney camp, I doubt it. But I also doubt that this comes from the Perry camp, if only because there’d be no benefit.

I’d suspect it’s from the Dems, as usual, because it has been very effective for them in the past. What’s bizarre, of course, is that their guys can be involved in the most outrageous sexual and financial scandals, and everybody just shrugs. But even an implication that a GOPer may have looked cross-eyed at somebody seems to unleash the dogs of war.

The media has been feigning surprise over the rapid ascendancy of Cain. Now that they’re realizing he’s a serious candidate who just might win the presidency, the weapons come out.

They’re going to do whatever they can to take him down. Romney is acceptable to them. A real conservative like Cain who can take back the White House for the American people is public enemy number 1.

B.S.. It certaintly could be Mitt, but to rule Perry out is absurd. He’s struggling in the polls and for the first time in weeks managed to do an interview without tripping over his tongue and might have a little momentum. He decides it’s time to strike with this B.S. Perry and Cain are competing for the same voters. Texas politics is as dirty as any in the country.

Liberal Establishment-Orchestrated Character Assassination. I KNEW THIS WAS COMING.

This man is a THREAT TO THE WHOLE STINKING CORRUPT LIB-DEM/RINO POWER ELITE STRUCTURE.

Let's see if the GOP field gets behind Herman, or if they let him twist in the wind (sorry for the allegory) and look the other way. Seriously, I am so sick of this in the USA, but I am not surprised, it was only matter of time. Maybe better they sling the mud now rather than in December or January. Let them "bring it on!" And, as Herman might say, "as long as they spell my name right." Let us leverage this negative energy, as in aikido, into a positive (increased name ID), and fling these high-tech lynching buggers right back on them.

I would not trust anything a group of black women say about a conservative black male candidate.

I’ve met far too many groups of minority women who have learned the ropes of victimhood all too well, and know their is very to nor risk for false accusations against men of honor, while all burden of proof is placed upon the accused.

Sorry,...the entire class of corrupt liars whom our legal system has allowed, condoned, even promoted to file false accusations is now embedded into the American intuition of their reputation as a group.

IMHO, they have the burden of proof and until it is shown, should be treated with hostile disdain.

They probably should have waited until he got the nomination.

That tells me it's not the left behind this but one of Cain's RINO opponents.

Remember, two people benefit from Romney getting the nomination - Romney and Obama.

Cain said he was ready for his “high tech lynching”. Didn’t he?” <<<

Brilliant observation, Wife. He knew this was coming, don’t you bet? The media will get a pass since it isn’t really “racist” in nature. They will put the racist business on Rick, and THICK, in order to save Romney. All the conservatives are going to get a full frontal assault.
The media can stomach Romney RINO, and have grown tired of Obama. The rest of our field HAS to be eliminated by smear and innuendo, which sadly works among some conservative voters, against the conservative tier of candidates.

Time to respond by going to heavy OFFENSE. Ramp up donations to Herman Cain (and FR for that matter) two fold, if your bill fold can handle it.

For every attack they level, just tell them we are going to dig in and ramp up and organize even more. Don't flinch, it will show weakness. These lowly scumbag people only understand STRENGTH and UNWAVERING RESOLVE in the aftermath of their drive by attacks. We can DO IT. We can slingshot this negative energy right back on their own asses. It can be done. Keep your powder dry.

Has any female ever come forth saying, “Yeah, Obama and I were debate partners, (or some such) and we dated awhile.”. . “We dated in high school.” “I went to the Homecoming (or Prom) with Obama.” Nothing, nada. . That I know of. . He’s been just perfect regarding his relationships with women? Was Michele his first date? Maybe he is the Messiah. : )

“The sources — which include the recollections of close associates and other documentation — describe episodes that left the women upset and offended. These incidents include conversations allegedly filled with innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature, taking place at hotels during conferences, at other officially sanctioned restaurant association events and at the association’s offices. There were also descriptions of physical gestures that were not overtly sexual but that made women who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable and that they regarded as improper in a professional relationship.”

physical gestures that were not “overtly sexual but made the woman who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable”???

LOL- so if anyone is uncomfortable with a gesture they witnessed that was not intended for you it can be classified as sexual harassment?? wow- could the Politico be anymore racist???

I didn't say this is damaging. I said it could be damaging. Cain must get out in front of this and bury it. He must be careful trying to compare himself to Clinton, if he takes that route. The left has a double standard, and the right isn't too fond of Clinton.

Ignore. Ridicule. Attack.

Gandhi said it all.

We have now clearly crossed the rubicon and are in Phase Three. Only because Cain has steamrolled up to front runner status and is now Defcon 3 Threat Number One to the Libs/RINOS, they have to begin the orchestrated character assassination campaign about 8 weeks early. They probably had this one waiting and front loaded it timewise to stop his ascendency. However, I am convinced, it will backfire and can be leveraged. Steady as she goes Herman. And the big question? What say YOU, fellow conservatives in the GOP race? [This will be interesting, who comes to his defense and who, by his or her silence, also joins in the condemnation and false witness.]

I don’t doubt it could be Romney’s people. It was his operatives who went over to the McCain campaign and proceeded to spread some all-out lies and smears about Palin to the media. They are the slimiest of the slimey.

On the other hand, I frankly didn’t expect the Romney crowd to try to deep-six Cain until closer proximity to Iowa.
