It is certainly very possible. Romney has a very polished style but as you note, he is a brutal political combatant. The guy that Cain threatens the most is Romney, since he shot to 1st place and has remained there for a few weeks now.
I haven’t had time to research much tonight, but the article I read said that Cain’s counsel told him about the settlement. I didn’t see the interview live, so I don’t know if he meant that his current counsel told him the information this afternoon, or if he meant he knew it all along.
In things like this, I have found that often reading it in the written word it comes across much different than the speaker meant it in real life, due to the inability of the written word to capture inflection and so forth. Also, an article can pick and choose which words to print, and which not to print. So I would want to see the interview before I know whether he was saying he found about (from counsel) later today about the settlement.
Well, seek out the video and evaluate the comments for yourself. This isn’t the final word on the matter. So this is one story that will certainly dominate the week’s news, and possibly beyond. I do think Cain and his people mishandled this issue. They knew about this since October 20 when Political contacted them. They had 10 days to prepare a response. And if somehow they didn’t see it coming, what’s wrong with them?
Take a look around Hildy, the Rovebot smear directed at Cain blew up in the Establishement’s face.
Let's see: Bachmann's a looney Evangelical Christian; Perry's a drunk/stoned/incoherent public speaker; Paul's totally unelectable; and now Cain's a sexual predator. Gee, I guess I'm stuck with Mitt, huh?
Psst, we're smarter than that.
