Not Fair or Balanced: Britt Hume says Cain is all but done as serious candidate
Fox & CNN | November 7, 2011

Posted on 11/07/2011 8:07:27 PM PST by Luther1917

Was watching Greta Susteran a few minutes ago and Britt Hume basically said to stick a fork in Cain, he's done. He also said Cain will get no higher in the polls and this latest allegation has killed his candidacy. The old RINO prognostitor in all his glory. RINO Rove came on Hannity a few minutes later and said basically the same thing. Cain is done. BLAH, BLAH,BLAH.

It's amazing how establishment Fox never has a disparaging this to say about Romney, but jumps all over this bogus story from this blonde bimbo today as showing Cain is done.

RINO Ari Fletcher said the same thing on CNN. But he went on to say he never thought Cain had a chance to start with. His talking partner was the martian James Carville, who said Cain never had a chance and was never a serious candidate to start with. Carville also flatout said the Perry camp is responsible for starting the story.

So there it is. It does not matter that Cain has doubled up on Romney in Iowa, leading him by 15% pts. For all Fox cares, Romney is the man, and will be even if he's polling 10% to Cain's 30.

Hey Brit: why don't you, Kraut, Kristol, Rove and the rest of you elites go and take a leap off the nearest bridge! Your days of selecting our candidates are over.

I despise people like these RINO lovers almost as much as Liberal Dems.

Never in all the years I have watched FOX have I seen tham expose such a transparent agenda as during this primary cycle. They are all Romney all the way. Their treatment of Cain is shameful and I really wonder if they don’t have a “get the boy back on the porch” attitude.

Brit’s wrong and lost my respect in that segment.

Cain is being tarred and feathered by the left, MSM, and others.

This woman is so blatantly transparent as is her lawyer.

The American people see through it and Cain will continue to gain momentum and Brit and Karl and others counting him out will be left wondering what happened.

Simple. We Americans are tired of this garbage and we ar not going to take it any more.

Frankly I think Brit is right and it really ticks me off. It’s obvious to me this is an orchestrated hit job. Allred just did the same thing to Meg Whitman in California. I probably wouldn’t have voted for Cain but if they can it to him they can do to my guy just as easily.

If FOX News persists on 'shaping the 2012 campaign' I'm going to turn off the TV.

The conservative movement is not going away. FOX would be wise to include several Tea Party analysts on their shows.

Hume, Rove, and others are out of touch with Main Street, USA.

It's not because they are "all Romney all the way", nor is it because they have a "get the boy back on the porch" attitude. The reason Brit Hume, Kraut, O'Reilly, etc, etc, diss Cain so hard is they know a political novice with an inept campaign team would have absolutely no chance of defeating Obama. They are right too. Cain was never going to be the nominee in 2012. What Cain needs more than anything is to win a few local/state campaigns, hone his political skills so he isn't a gaffe machine, and come back and run again when he is more seasoned and prepared for a presidential campaign. Cain is just not ready yet.

I have no crystal ball... but I do remember when chucky krauthammer... fred bbbbbarnes and britt were all pontificating that mccain was finished... mara liason agreed and said he would be out soon... they chided that he had few supporters and about 15 reporters at every stop.

We all know how that turned out. britt said exactly what roger ailes wanted him to say.

This is why I rarely if ever turn on Fox News or any other tv news. I know as much as most of those dunderheads, and I guarantee I have a stronger track record of predictions. Most Freepers do, for that matter.

The Fox political team is neck deep in people who haven’t operated outside of the beltway in decades.

Before she announced she wasn't running, FNC was constantly trashing Sarah Palin.

Contrary to the opinion of some delusional FReepers, there's nothing conservative about FNC.

Wrong, which is why he is leading the race, and leading after this fake story. It is also why he has surpassed experienced politicians like Perry, Bachmann, Gingrich, and Santorum.

Interesting how Cain is ‘gaffe prone’, but nary a word about Romney coming out against the Ohio collective bargaining reform of Kasich and the Republicans. The one issue that is THE battle of the decade, and one where we have been winning in state after state, and Romney sides against us. But it is Cain that is flawed.

I had to turn off Hume, and when Greta said Rove was next I just laughed. Like there’s anything he has to say that I’d be the least bit interested in!

Any repubs who still fall for the MSM smear campaigns against our best candidates,,,are there still any who fall for it? I hope not. If they do they should join their intellectual peers in the demorat party.

When Hume started saying that sexual misconduct might be OK with dems but not repubs, I wanted to scream “BUT CAIN IS INNOCENT!” and “Britt, WE are not falling for the lies spewed by the likes of Politico and Gloria Allred and the rest of the ususal suspects!”.

I donated twice to Herman so far. Last week being the most recent time. I swear I am going to donate again this week just to prove WE DON’T LET THE MSM and DC ELITES pick our candidates.

Whom ever they smear, is who they fear and our best candidate.

So thanks MSM and other evil doers, you confirm that Herman is the best man for the job.

Cain is an innocent man.
His accusers, liars that they are, are an instrument of the devil.

May God protect Mr.Cain and also expose the liars for what they are.

If they EVER think they are going to eek out a vote from yours truly in November 2012 for Romney after they relentlessly smeared and depressed the votes for decent conservative man out, kicking him of the race (if that is what eventually happens) they have another think coming. I'll damned well vote Conservative Party if I have to. I see no essential difference between these traitorous RINOS and treasonous Euro-Socialist Democrats.

And I will not countenance an OUNCE of "but but but you will elect Obama!!" from Young Repubicans on here. Believe me. Smearing Cain is what will have elected Obama. Nominating McCain II (Romney) is what will have elected Obama.

I watched Fox less and less, starting in 09. For the last 6 months I only watched Fox when Sarah was on and a few Greta shows. Since Sarah announced she wasn't running, I have not looked at FOX at all.

I have less stress since I quite watching FOX. FOX is mostly a bunch of elitist pigs yapping and trashing Conservatives.

Which pretty much makes you wrong.

Let's see, one of the times I had people telling me this very thing was when the majority here seemed to believe that flake Christine O'Donnell could actually win a statewide election in Delaware. Considering she lost by like 18 points, I think we all know who was right on that one.

Another one of those times was when I said Sarah Palin was not going to run for President even though the majority seemed convinced she was. Again, we all know how that one turned out.

Cain will not be the nominee because the majority of Republican primary voters won't want to commit electoral suicide and nominate a guy who has absolutely no chance to win a general election.

None of our choices this time are all that good, but the only candidates that can realistically stop Romney the chameleon are Newt and maybe Perry. Considering Perry can't communicate coherently yet, I am leaning towards Newt - however imperfect he is, he may be the only realistic option at this point.

What I find hysterical is all the people whose heads are in the sand about Cain. Saying he is finished is not admitting he's guilty as charged, it is recognizing the media has destroyed him just as it did Sarah Palin.

The truth is you have to have the media covering for you (as in Clinton) or you have to be very talented in mitigating the damage the media can do to you. Unfortunately, that is not Cain.

Think about it, the media has made the OWS crowd sound somewhat noble and principled in their protest, when in reality, they are not.

I think it is hysterical the hatred spewed by you people when you disagree with the analysis or the opinion of someone - someone on your side at that...especially when you know they are correct.

So now that that is settled, who is going to replace Cain as the Not Romney? We are running out of candidates.

I agree. I think we need to allow them to grieve, but they grieve with much anger and venom when anyone has a different thought about anything.

Cain, ultimately was not going to go anywhere, with or without Bimbos, for many reasons.

I never thought I would be supporting Newt, but he is the only one left...I don't see Perry turning it around, but you never know. So having said that, Newt knows how to govern and he has some sharp comments. I liked the comment he made this weekend in which he said that he would challenge Obama to a series of Lincoln-Douglas style debates, but he would let Obama use his teleprompter if he wanted to.

Sarah Palin herself said she didn't know whether she was going to run or not until her final decision which makes you a lucky guesser or her a liar--no debate there obviously.
Christine O’Donnel was stabbed in the back by a petulant RINO elite establishment—led by Rove and Krauthammer—who were disappointed she defeated their liberal primary candidate—a RINO elite by the way,who share your opinions.

But I do agree with you about the resurgent Newt Gingrich but am not yet ready to throw a good Christian conservative like Herman Cain under the bus—even if Cain haters on the Left and the “Right” drool at the prospect.

“Cain will not be the nominee because the majority of Republican primary voters won’t want to commit electoral suicide and nominate a guy who has absolutely no chance to win a general election”

Statistics were shown after the 2008 elections that if McCain had gotten as many conservative republican votes as Bush did in 2004 he would have beaten Obama.

Well, let me say this. If Herman Cain, a real conservative, is the nominee, he will energize the conservatives in this country and they will come out in droves to vote for him and drive Obama out of office. Romney absolutely can’t energize enough conservatives for him to beat Obama. Cain would also cut into the black vote. There are many black conservatives in America, but most keep their mouth shut for fear of being ridiculed.

If Cain wins the GOP nomination he will be the next president of the United States. In the day and age of the Tea Party, Romney will not be the next president.
