Skip to comments.The More the GOP Left & the Media Left Hates on Herman Cain the MORE I Like Him

It's a good thing it's Halloween. That way it's OK for smear merchants to hide behind masks. I'd bet on the Romney wing of the GOP and all their sycophants in the press that is sold out to Obama's victory. They lurk behind the vampire costume they always choose -- sucking the life's blood out of our people, our culture, and our nation.
A simple point to make: I've seen so much of this "gotcha" garbage in the past that I just don't believe it anymore. At the very best it comes down to purported words that might or might not have been said a couple of very long decades ago.
Are we really going to Clarence Thomas this candidate Herman Cain without even a hair on a coke can?
All it takes now to ruin someone is to say "someone said"?
I haven't really been a sold-out Cain supporter until this. I'll back him to the hilt on this one, though.
We got your back, Mr. Cain.
The Left will stop at NOTHING to stop Herman Cain. It's going to get brutal, and it's going to get dangerous.
Cain is the Left's worst nightmare, and, what's even more dangerous, he's armed with truth, and this threatens their most cherished delusions.
Do not underestimate the depths to which these people will sink. There is no bottom limit.
If the Liberals were EVER in a position to criticize another politician for anything, they lost that credibility once they whitewashed the obvious and documented BS of the Clinton administration, for 8 years!!!
My thoughts exactly, hope everyone feels that way.
As soon as someone steps forward with one shred of substance, then I’ll eat my hat. Until then, it’s far easier to believe in another in an endless chain of media hit jobs than it is to believe in a 20 year old innuendo that can’t even be proven to have been said.
These trolls have a clear intent to bring down republican candidates who have risen in the polls. Obama Rat trolls should be identified and outted.
First with Bachman, then with Perry, now with Cain (and of course, always with Romney), the Obama Rats use a deceptively simple approach.
They camp out on a thread that seems to support a candidate, Cain for example.
They use one-liners and ad hominem insults to attack that candidate, while implying that they support another candidate, for instance, Perry. Then when one visits the Perry threads, that same poster rarely, if ever, appears. When he does, the appearance is luke warm, and mainly directed toward tearing down some other candidate. When challenged, the Obama Rat trolls avoid supporting the candidate they imply that they support.
In addition, the Obama Rats seem to use many of the same talking points, often referring to Mike Huckabee, or some other candidate from the past. They use virulent attacks on individual posters, who disagree with them, to try to drive that poster off the thread.
One need only research the history of comments from suspected Obama Rats to see the pattern.
Obviously, we each have different views on the candidates. Those differing views are worthy of debate.
However, unless a poster starts finding positive points with a candidate, any candidate, with as much vigor as he tears down other candidates, then he is just another shrill Obama Rat troll, not worthy of debate. He should be identified and outted.
Do not underestimate the Obama machine. The following link compares the relative internet capability of that machine utilizing paid staff on Twitter to the significantly lesser capability of each of the republican candidates. Is it even reasonable to presume that the Obama Rats would not have the same capability to influence Free Republic?
You can bet the writers for Letterman, Leno, Stewart, Colbert, MSNBC/CNN/ABC/CBS/NBC etc., are working at full “propaganda” speed today.
These smear attacks do NOT help any of the other GOP candidates. It merely reminds the grass roots why we totally loath the GOP Establishment.
IF they success in destroying Cain with these slime bag tactics of rumor, innuendo and whispers, they will also destroy any chance of any GOP challenger beating O. We are not going to repeat 2008. If you cannot get out of the way GOP Establishment, be prepared to be run over.
If they cannot beat Cain on the issues, then they need to get out the way. Sliming him tells us a whole lot MORE about the people running the GOP machine then it does Cain.
If there was videotape, verifiably accurate and time-stamped, with no possible alteration, of behavior that I personally could not dismiss with an, "Oh, cut the crap, you're not all that!" and an elbow, I *might* care a little bit.
In the absence of such evidence, the logical assumption is that the story totally made up.
The above is the only part of your post I'd disagree with. I think Obama rats are desperately supporting Romney for the nomination. He is the most beatable of all the candidates. His flip-flopping, liberal, big government approach and his RomneyCare give them something to run against that everyone already agrees on.
Romney actually permits Obama to run to the right of him on a number of issues.
Romney is a disaster. It's wrong even to suggest anything positive about him.
I don’t think they destroy Cain with this. It is so obvious, and so flimsy that I’m betting his poll numbers actually increase.
Do you realize that a question such as “are you married?” could be construed by a feminazi or a gold-digger as suggestive, sexual innuendo?
Thank you for the gental reminder of who the real enemies of all us are. You are a much better man then me.
A simple rejection of a woman who’s looking for a hookup with a rich executive could leave her feeling “angry and disrespected,” or whatever the idiotic claim is.
I’m tired of the hypocrisy. The goal of a substantial percentage of women is to look “sexy” or “hot” every time they leave the house: that is, to arouse lust in the general public. Then they’re offended if it works - if someone expresses sexual interest - and they’re equally offended if a viewer expresses distaste or disinterest.
(Nothing in this general comment on social mores is intended to suggest that Herman Cain ever met the women in question, in the absence of contemporaneous documentary evidence.)
I wholeheartedly agree with your parenthetical comment. I hate to think that discussing a smear gives any impression other than I despise the smear.
Great thought, TC. Thanks.
Unfortunately, that's part of the magic of this tactic. It's almost impossible to say anything at all without giving the impression of conceding that there is something to be said - that the people at least met at some point. And yet, even that much has to be proved, or it should be presumed false.
I hear you. Why has he not gotten Secret Service Protection is beyond me. The idiot in cheif got it months before he was even nominated. More liberal double standards.. I tell you this if any thing happens to Herman, there is going to be big trouble for Obama and libs. Then I am afraid Obama will do his thing and suspend the constitution. I pray nothing happens but with commie liberals anything is possible.
