Encouragement for Herman Cain
http://www.hermancain.com/encouragement ^

Posted on 12/01/2011 8:25:19 PM PST by Apollo5600

From Team HC: Please take a moment to write Mr. Cain a note or record a short video sharing why you feel it is important for him to stay in the race and become the next President of the United States of America! We must unite and show Mr. Cain that he is not alone in this fight, but that WE THE PEOPLE stand firmly beside him and behind him! http://www.hermancain.com/encouragement

Apollo5600: I'm starting to get the feeling that Cain's staff are doing their best to keep Cain encouraged. It's quite tragic what is happening to Cain and our political system here. Please everyone, take the time to send Cain a message expressing your support or, at least, encouraging him to stay. The link above is pretty easy to use. You can submit straight to the website. It won't be trolled, since they are moderator reviewed.

I wrote a long one, "Ricardo Galvan" if you happen to see it. Probably hasn't been approved yet.

And I am beyond upset about it. He was my guy. I promoted him to anyone who would listen. And before that...Sarah was my guy. I am batting a thousand! Now, no one listens to me...and I am doubting myself. Think I will join the foks up in the Yaak...

Damn! He denied taking her anywhere - have you listened to ANY of his interviews lately? ?? This is how rumors get perpetuated, by half-hearing and mis-reading.

Cain DID NOT have sexual harassment charges made against him. THEY WERE INVESTIGATED AND FOUND TO BE FALSE. Even the woman’s lawyer didn’t think the charges were serious enough to even file a complaint with the EOCC. Cain wasn’t a party to the severance packages and wasn’t even at the NRA at the time. Ironically the woman who accused him made the same kind of complaint at her next job. But you’ve done exactly what the media wanted...absorbed just enough to believe them. And they can still pick our candidates...and probably our president. They’re just warming up.

I have a feeling I know why Herman hasn’t been home to see the little woman yet.

According to what she said to Greta; she is not going to take this well! She is not going to stand by Mr. Cain while he makes his announcement. She isn’t going to be a Kennedy wife, Elisabeth Edwards or Hillary Clinton...she will have his stuff out on the curb.

It is easy to do this to our side, we stand for CHARACTER they know
we will throw the bums out no questions asked!!! I am still in mourning
about Cain, however I am still in disbelief he could enter the race with
this stuff out there!!!! Sometimes I will just never understand what the
heck goes on in ones mind. Even if there was not an affair supporting
another woman for years when you have such a lovely family is just
creepy. I DO not need a saint for a candidate, however he has lied to his
family he will surely lie to the public also!!!!!

PROVE he did it. Even the woman hasn’t. No receipts nothing. Just a bunch of text messages with her asking for money. But since you know more than anything else prove it. Don’t you think if they had a 13 year affair there would be proof? Hotel receipts, little gifts, cards, video tapes of the audience from the fight (which was 14 years ago, not 13 so she now says “13-14” years). But all we know about for sure is text messages where she asked him for money. Even IF you think he’s guilty don’t you think before declaring it a fact you should have proof? Or do we just accept accusations by statements from a woman who lost a libel lawsuit, was accused of stalking (ironically enough by calls, emails, text messages), etc. And that’s just in the last few years. If you were on a jury (because that’s exactly what the media is making us) and her lawyer put her on the stand with just her words and a flash of text messages you would declare him guilty before he even mounts a defense. Is that what we’ve become? Has the media been so successful in their attempts to make us suspicious, jaded & hysterical that all they have to do is put forth innuendo and questionable “witnesses” and we believe them?

If there were no charges against Cain for sexual harrassment, then why was he investigated? There certainly were 2 women who came forward years ago and said he sexually harrassed them. They brought charges against Cain, and were paid off to keep quiet about it. Those are facts. That is my point. Cain knew these women said these things about him...reporting on it, isn’t lying. It is a fact that they charged him with this crime and did it years ago. It was not recently made up...except for Gloria Alred’s client.

When reporting on Sarah, the media made up falsehoods, that her baby was actually her daughter’s baby, that she was having an affair with several people; that her husband was having an affair, that she fired someone in retaliation...all bald faced lies—made up from thin air. Big difference.

We all tend to judge others by ourselves. If you are honest, decent , faithful and loyal you think others are the same as you are until they prove themselves to be otherwise.

If you are devious, selfish , a gossip and tend to sneak around a bit, you think others are the same. Usually others don’t stick around you long enough for you to form a true opinion about hm or her.

These women seem to fall into the latter category.

The only mistake Herman Cain made was in not telling his wife he was helping someone out moneywise. He judged Ginger White by himself.

So Genger took advantage of him!

He didn’t say he’d helped her over 13 years. She isn’t saying that either. He said he’s known her for 13 years. I’d bet there’s lots of people male and female that he’s formed friendships with over the years his wife doesn’t know about because it’s simply not that important. I’m sure my husband’s made friends through the years through various business contacts that I don’t know about. So what! What’s he supposed to do, write it down every day and send her a note about everyone he talked to, had lunch with, etc.

He also said they talk every day. He said it again tonight on Hannity. He said he talked to her the day the woman made the accusation.

Phil's footnote:

Thus far into the smear there are allegations without foundation from women with bankruptcy issues, eviction issues, unemployment issues.

One is a neighbor of David Axelrod.

One served Bill Clinton and Greg Craig in the Elian Gonzalez operation.

The current one has been slapped with a restraining order from a judge for serial harassment, stalking, flooding a person with texts, libel.

There are supporters of the Obama operation as well as the Republican operation (hence, Rove and Axelrod, above) for whom the old Sicilian curse is new again: "Take the stone from my shoe!"

Mark Levin today expresses admiration for Herman Cain, as does Rush.

This is not John Edwards or Al Gore or Bill Clinton.

Or Barack Obama who has no girlfriends.

This is Clarence Thomas twenty years later. . . .

. . . .still a lynching.

Those are NOT the facts. These 2 women made accusations. The accusations were INVESTIGATED AND FOUND TO BE WITHOUT MERIT. Do you understand that? There was NO sexual harassment. Do you understand what that means? HE WAS FOUND TO BE NOT GUILTY. THEIR lawyers were privy to the investigations. IF there was sexual harassment a lawyer would do more than negotiate a severance package. At the very least there would have been a filing with the EEOC. There wasn’t.

They have now been cleared (by the NRA) to freely talk about what he supposedly did but they haven’t. This isn’t rape (the woman that came out and said she wouldn’t talk about it unless the other woman came forward as well so he could be “tried in the court of public opinion). It was a gesture. A GESTURE! Even she doesn’t deny that. Being that it’s minor why not talk about it? Why has no one asked HER why she made a similar claim at her next job?

I can’t believe anyone is still supporting this man. It seems to me that Herman has been leading a double life. He has the “happy family” on one side and a bunch of mistresses on the other. It’s obvious that Herman did a lot of traveling with his job, which spells disaster for a lot of marriages. He was probably bored with the wife and sought excitement while on the road without the wife. Heck, does she even travel with him on the campaign trail? I had never even seen a picture of her or heard her voice until a couple weeks ago, which tells me that he keeps her in the dark (with good reason).

He needs to go away and disappear for the next year and try to repair the damage he’s done to his wife and family. He is arrogant, phony, and has no credibility and, quite frankly, I am furious that he ever considered running for president.

Yes he said he’s known her for 13 years. Knowing is quite a bit different than being a sugar daddy for 13 years. My husband’s worked with plenty of people (male & female) at different companies (the field he’s in is small so people tend to overlap). I don’t know who they are and I don’t care. I don’t care if he’s had lunch or drinks with them. I don’t care if he gave one or more $50 for gas or whatever. I trust him. He’s never given me any reason to doubt him. A marriage without trust is headed for divorce.

It's simply amazing is it not to watch this pageantry of delusion?

Everyone is lying, it's all made up, he never did not really not recall sort of not really..maybe

What severances, payoffs, settlements ...all lies...not for anything wrong...just cause the NRA are nice guys or scared of tort lawyers with big lies

over and over

and if that fails then...”well, at least it's not like Clinton”...well thank God is that now the benchmark?

at least no raping or assaulting..wow

or my favorite..Newt cheated...yes..he did..what Cain has going on if true about the severances/settlements and this notion of giving this slattern money all these years

is a mite more significant

they are right about one thing...the media will allow lefties to be caught with live boy, dead girl and a stable of “college girls” (sheep)

and still ignore it...unless you text pics of johnson...that will get ya

but all conservatives have to do is just regular ol fooling around and the hounds are let loose

I will bet Newt will have to apologize about his wandering eye years ago now over and over for cakers like Anderson Cooper, man haters like Maddow and news babes like Megan Kelly and Robin Meade and silliest of all...the master philanderer Geraldo..lol

But I think Newt can fight back well enough..

I feel the same way. I have not yet received my Cain bumpersticker. I’ll probably get it the day he quits. :(.

Because nearly everyone still in the race has been unfaithful, allegedly, to their spouse, I could live with Cain also being unfaithful. It’s really between him and his wife. But if he was, now his protestations are so loud and specific, he will be seen as a liar forever. On Hannity he was very specific and powerful with his denials. So I am hoping against hope that it’s not true.

I would rather have a President Cain that has had a troubled marriage, than a President Cain that lied in our faces.

Yes, in fact Cain has said he has helped a lot of people financially over the years - male and female.

Apparently it is a crime to be a philanthropist, but it is somehow okay to be an adulterer. Go figure that one out.

No one “brought charges” against Cain - this was ONE COMPLAINT by Kraushaar filed with human resources at the NRA. It was investigated INTERNALLY by the company and found without merit. She goes on to do the same thing to her next employer.

We don’t even know for sure there WAS a second complaint by another woman at the NRA. No one has confirmed that at the NRA. So far everything confirms Cain’s side of the story.

By the way, it is not a “fact” that anyone was paid to keep quiet about anything. That is inuendo. The evidence to date points to a termination package.

You have bought the media lies hook-line-and-sinker.

Some people sure have made Obama’s job easier. All the left has to do is throw some vague allegations out there or present some edited interviews, sit back and watch conservatives cannibalize their own.

To my knowledge he gave it to her but someone with her financial history even if it was a loan I don’t think he’d expect to get it back.

Agreed. Folks are being pretentious in a real creepy sort of way in their assumptions regarding Cain's relationship with his wife and how their finances are handled. I'm sure multimillionaires handle their personal financial matters a little differently than most folks who post on this forum. IMHO it's in the best interest of all Conservatives that Cain stay in the race and let the electorate have their say instead of bowing out to pressure from the media. I find it disgraceful that some Conservatives are so willing to jump on the media bandwagon to take down one of our own.

At this point a vote for Cain is a vote for Romney.

And that is true of the other candidates as well. Their polling numbers are not going to turn around. The only one who hasn't received a shot at the prize is Santorum. The others have had their day in the sun and blew it big time: Bachmann, Perry, Paul, Cain, Pawlenty, and even Huntsman if you count the enormous visibility he had as ambassador to China.

Perry needs to save his money for his senatorial bid. He is young enough to have another shot at this. A senatorial seat and some national level experience would do him a world of good. I would love to have his voice in the US Senate.

I watched Herman Cain on Sean Hannity’s show last night. I saw a lot of anger on his face. The anger of a betrayed but innocent man. When he said to Sean that he did not want any “detective work” right now I believe he truly is going after the person who is responsible for setting up these bimbos.

I am voting for Newt but I believe this is the Mother of dirty tricks more than Herman ever imagined.

Not yet. Right now a vote for Cain is a vote for Cain. Cain should not bow out prematurely to due media pressure. Let the electorate have their say in the early primaries and at the appropriate time I’m sure Conservatives will rally around the best viable choice as determined by the electorate and not the media or RINO establishment.

It’s fine that you’re for Cain. Mazel tov. I DO wish you and others would confine your posts to pro-Cain instead of thread hopping to attack other candidates and their supporters. That’s become de rigeur around here and ultimately serves no good purpose.

For a newly minted FReeper, you’ve jumped in with both feet so it might lead one (me) to suspect you’re not so much a ‘noob’ but a longer term FReeper operating under another pseudonym.

'... she (White) came out with this story" alleging that the two had a 13-year extramarital affair.'

jimmyray: Helping some one once or twice, maybe. 13 years,

The quote from the article you linked did not say that Cain has given her money for 13 years. I have not heard or read of him saying that. Do you have an actual quote or video clip of him saying that? Or do you just have poor reading comprehension?

On another note, if you are battling stage 4 cancer, do you have the energy, time or ability to carry on an extramarital affair?

My FRiend it looks like you are trying to talk yourself into accepting an establishment Pub as your candidate. I am not willing to give up on Perry. We haven't started voting yet and the polls do change. Newt is on a nice run, but in 2 months that can all change.

It's the tortoise vs. the hare.

Perry has not stumbled as badly as the media tries to portray it. After Cain, Santorum, Bachmann, Huntsman and maybe Paul drop out lets see where the support goes. I like Perry because I know where he stands and he is consistent. Newt is on a good run right now, but do we know the positions he takes today he will hold tomorrow?

Also, the baggage Newt has to deal with is going to be tough to overcome. I think he plays right into the image that obama wants to create that the Pubs are a bunch of rich, inside dirty dealing, capitalists who don't care about the "working man" (a phrase I particularly hate, I've never seen one of the "working men" in the office on a Sat. night trying to figure out how to solve a problem).

As I've said many times we will see where we are at after SC & FL.

All of that said, my FRiend, if Perry doesn’t pull it out, I would love to have his voice in the US Senate. I’d love to have him get the experience nationally that will make him a near certainty as a presidential candidate in 2020.

Wouldn't that be a better spot for Newt? :-)

As Newt gains even more coverage I see a real possibility he is going to say something that will be easily misrepresented and will discredit him. He thinks big (a really good thing) but he trusts in the intelligence of people to understand what he's saying and why (a really bad thing). Reagan was fantastic on developing support and trust and part of the reason was he kept things simple, even though he was one of the brightest guys around.

Don't get me wrong, if Newt is the nominee I will support him and send in money to help him. It's just that he has weaknesses we don't want to recognize.

He’s going to talk with the whole family in person this weekend. But you said in your post why couldn’t he pick up the phone and call his wife. They’ve been talking daily.

The quote from the article you linked did not say that Cain has given her money for 13 years. I have not heard or read of him saying that. Do you have an actual quote or video clip of him saying that? Or do you just have poor reading comprehension?

I have conceded that he did not admit to the 13 year allegation, see my post #93. No need to try ad hominim attacks, e.g your last sentence above.

He has confirmed however, that:
1. he texted her
2. he gave her an undisclosed amount of $
3. his wife did not know about the money
4. his wife did not know about the woman
5. He also confirms he has helped other "friends".

Whether it is 3 months, or 13 years, it still smells bad, eh? And really, is he so naive to think that secretly giving money (while he is running for POTUS) to a woman (while he is running for POTUS)... Duh! Not to mention how it would impact his marriage... Not presidential material, IMHO. He has been my choice until Wednesday of this week, BTW!

They’ve had a longer time to do this to Sarah. Cain’s only been subjected to this for a few weeks. If by some miracle he would get the nomination and win, the media will never leave him alone. It’s not so much Herman Cain they expect to fold, it’s his wife and family. If the wife isn’t happy, then you’ve done your job because usually the wife’s will usually wins in the end.
