Vanity - My advise to Herman Cain
Vanity | November 8, 2011 | Self

Posted on 11/08/2011 1:14:49 PM PST by DManA

Every morning call a news conference. Make the assembled reporters sit through a forty five minute campaign speech. If you run out of material repeat parts from

Then sit there and answer every question until the run out. Deny everything. Put edited highlights on your web site. Make the reporters look as stupid as possible. That is the easy part.

In short, make a mockery of this travesty that is going on. Make the press the laughing stock of the country.

Line up a slew of conservative women...once a day have a different one of them call a press conference and explain how Herman Cain “harassed” them....they can make up the circumstances as they go along....do it for 30 days....best way to get PR seems to me.

Get out there and summarily refute the allegations as untrue.

Then move on the the terrible state of her financial affairs, which are proven out......thanks to some dutiful FReepers.

Then say that the left is scared $hitless of facing Cain in the general as the race-card and (Romney’s) shortcomings will not be an issue. That Obama is scared to death of Cain....debating him on issues.

Finally, and this is most important, state that he is sad that this poor woman has had to resort to being used by the left to help solve her financial troubles by smearing him, and that it is a real shame that when she is completely discredited, that the left will drop her like a piece of crumpled paper and move on.

The problem with this is it turns Cain into a sideshow act who has the time for this foolishness. If you don’t think the press won’t portray him as some kind of Cain Mutiny loon, you don’t know the press very well.

Better idea—come clean and answer every stupid question in one press conference, and from that day on stick to the issues. You’ll have all the attention and people listening in will actually hear why they should vote for Cain. Just hating the media isn’t reason enough to make him president.

Sorry, repeat parts from previous days. The reporters would have to sit there and take it.

My advice is for Cain to belt out this at every Press Conference and public appearance until the ‘storm’ blows over!

No but the beauty is he gets 45 minutes/day to say something serious. If they don’t report it he can point out the next day that they ignored substantive issues he raised and instead concentrated on the latest salacious accusation. This makes THEM look like the loonies.

It is impossible for Cain to do anything that would cause them to give him worse press. They are already giving him everything they have.

Every day there is a new salacious accusation. Denying it is what he would be doing every day after his campaign speech.

Yap, if Cain breaks up the black vote monopoly by 10%, Obama is toast. With Mitt as the nominee, Obamacare will be off the table since Mitt is the biological father of Obamacare.

The last straw for me that the only way to deal with this is to use the press lunacy against him was today’s CNN story about the anonymous friend backing up the anonymous accuser’s story. That moves this into the realm of something that can only be dealt with by mocking your enemies and Big Media is clearly his enemy.

This should resonate with blacks:

Let me summarize all the accusations against me - I am an over sexed black man who cannot control myself when I meet white blonds. This is not an accusation, it is a stereotype and it must stop.

Not true. The officially documented sexual harassment cases total 3. Those are out already. Women like Bialick can come forward till doomsday, without a scintilla of evidence, they will become less and less relevant. After Clinton & Thomas & Bush41 & McCain, this issue is fading faster than snow in July. However republicans must learn to stop eating their own.

Two harassment, one sexual assault. But who’s keeping score.

In other words, be Obama.

No thanks. Cain should say what he has to say and get back on message.

The answer is as you say, delay the part they are really there for. When it does come time to give them the fodder, give them the old Democrat standard: “This is old news, Herman has to get back to the business of doing the people’ business. There is no ‘there’ there, folks. Then leave.

"Make the assembled reporters sit through a forty five minute campaign speech"

AFTER appearing 45 minutes late for the Press Conference, and tell them you were playing golf.

Say he did that yesterday. Today CNN reports the anonymous friend of the anonymous accuser story. So he addresses that and postpones getting back to his message tomorrow?

This is bonfire of the vanities. He can’t just respond. He has to be proactive.

This is Cain's great opportunity to show how creatively he can handle a crisis.

First, he needs to have his staff create a beautiful and compelling video in which women and men who know him testify to his character and how he would never do such things he is being accused of.

Second, he to find the best polygraph expert in the world and challenge those women to put up or shut up (he needs to take the polygraph also).

Third, he needs to hire a mean snake of a lawyer and threaten to sue every accusing woman of defamation of character.

Fourth, he needs to let it be known that he has hired a team of investigators to determine who is urging these women to make these false accusations...and the investigators will be given instructions to follow their leads all the way to the White House if that's where they lead.

Lastly, he needs to set up a fund to which his supporters can contribute to cover the costs of this effort directly (and he needs to pre-sell the book rights for the entire story to help fund the effort and find a great author to write it).

I see your point, but let's say he does the above--then what? America cries out against the liberal media, and they just start behaving?

What you say above will get two seconds' coverage in the MSM which, deny it all we want, is still what carries to most voters. He can complain all he wants that "I'm talking substance" and what's going to happen, the MSM will carry that every night? No. They'll paint him as 'avoiding, once again, answering questions about' whoever.

There’s probably nothing he can do. This story has already been written and Big Media will not quit until they can print:

Beleaguered Republican Herman Cain announced today that he was withdrawing from the race for the Republican Presidential nomination.

Good luck in trying to dictate to Herman Cain and the LMSM.

IMO neither of them will listen to your suggestions.

If Cain cannot deflect the charges, then he will falter.

Today he said all that needed to be said in my mind.

He has other people beginning to do his speaking on this smear for him. The candidate has said it didn’t happen. Time to get back on message.
