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.

Cain admitted to knowing Ginger and sending money without his wife’s knowledge. There’s $80K in payoffs from fifteen years ago.

Really, what is wrong with you?

Are you that desperate for someone you don’t even know to believe in?

I repeat.... what the hell is wrong with you?

So now if you give $ to someone, it is ‘proof’ of an affair?

If you’re going to tell me “what the hell is wrong with you?” could you start by making an argument that doesn’t start from things that aren’t even true? What pay offs? This has been beaten to death, over, and over, and over again. If Cain had been found “guilty” of anything during his time at the NRA, he would have lost his position or forced to move on. The NRA made the separation payments, NOT CAIN, and there is NO EVIDENCE for any of the accusations against him! All we have are accusations... repeated... over and over and over again, getting increasingly more extreme for one purpose: The bigger the lie, the more fools there’ll be.

I repeat... what the hell is wrong with you?

How much money, for what reason, and do you know if she gave him anything in return?

Piss Off, Troll!

I have read your POSTING HISTORY and seen how rarely you have been on FR over six years and also how virulently anti-Cain.

Shove it bloke, and hit the road.

(( )) = troll marks. I encourage everyone to read posting histories and sign up dates and attach these alerts/brandings as necessary.

Do you know the candidate you’re supporting personally? That’s a moronic comment. 99% of voters don’t “know” the candidate they support.

I have enjoyed hearing Cain speak in the campaign, but he is finished. The longer he delays his exit, the harder it will be for his wife.

Herman Cain acknowledged Thursday that he repeatedly gave Ginger White money to help her with “month-to-month bills and expenses”

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

Cain is finished. How many of us men have given money to another woman without our wife's knowledge or consent? And to do it for 13 years because she was a "Friend"?

Cain can put all the lipstick he can find on this pig, but it is still a pig.

I will say a prayer for their marriage. Herman Cain acknowledged Thursday that he repeatedly gave Ginger White money to help her with “month-to-month bills and expenses” without telling his wife of more than 40 years. It doesn’t really MATTER that he didn’t have an affair with her, she well may be a liar. BUT if any spouse hides giving monthly payments to a person of the opposite sex for years and doesn’t tells his/or her spouse is in some serious trouble - the TRUST factor between the two is broken. I’ll pray for them but I believe he’s gone.

I saw him on Hannity tonight, and he didn’t sound too promising that he was staying in the campaign. He mentioned family concerns which is a legitimate concern. But it just makes me so angry how the left can dog our candidates until they throw in the towel because they don’t want to put their families through all this, ala Sarah Palin. That’s why we keep getting stuck with these old geezers like McCain and Bob Dole. They would probably be flattered if a bevvy of women came out of the woodwork claiming vast sexual activity.

Cain has repeatedlly stated that he is a problem solver.

Well, he’s got a few problems here HE needs to solve.

One is a lousy campaign staff and handlers who aren’t helping him out of this mess, if he is able to be helped. The other seems to be an inability to extract the proof needed from his accusers to free himself of these allegations.

Can he do anything about either one? Time will tell. If he’s really innocent of it all, I pray he can.

Honestly, I just wish he'd stay in to deny the media and Rove another Conservative scalp.

John Edwards has an affair and a love child and the media sits on the story.
Bill Clinton has an affair and three MSM sources spike the story.

Herman Cain gets accused of an affair(s) - just ACCUSED - and it's all we hear about for a month.

And Rove/Romney: someone still needs to explain to me how it is your TEAM (especially Rove) always knew about the coming accusations BEFORE EVEN HERMAN CAIN DID!!!!!! Anyone? Anyone?

I think Palin is the rare exception, she really does have as much if not influence outside of a political campaign. Her endorsement matters. Cain’s won’t.

I really wanted to believe in Cain. I had very high hopes for him, but he gave this woman money without telling his wife? I think the other women were liars or puppets or both, but this last one is too sketchy.

I wish Palin had finished her term in Alaska, then run in this race. But hey—if wishes were horses, beggars would ride!

This is a thread clearly titled in support of Herman Cain. There is no law nor rule agains others to join it, but it also can and will be "troll bait" and a magnet for disruptors.

However, these people are easily exposed and sent packing.

Watch for trolls closely on this thread. Check the following:

a) FR sign up dates (fairly recently or only before a major national election);

b) very thin/rare posting history on FR if on for any number of years

c) statement(s) on the thread of previous support of Herman Cain ("but now changing mind"), but upon investigation no previous support verbalized in Posting History for Cain

d) a Posting History riddled with anti-Cain rhetoric, particularly recent. Obssessive and repeated. Thread jumping with constant anti-Cain comments.

Upon finding one or a combination of these, depending on the circumstances, consider affxing the "brand" to the thread as an alert.

Such as, if I were a troll (perish the thought), and you were strongly convinced of it by checking the above factors, place

((AmericanInTokyo)) in a simple post on the thread.

He's out of time.

It's one thing to have an adulterous past. People can be forgiving of past indiscretions. This one was discovered on the Campaign trail. He doesn't have time to turn it around. Hell, his wife just found out about this crap when we did. His wife didn't know until today that he was giving money to another woman up until a couple of months ago.

Cain is done. If he were younger, he could run again in 12 years. Time heals all wounds. But 4 weeks is not going to be enough time.

He needs to pack it in.

Cain said that he’s going to meet with his wife for the first time tomorrow since this broke, so obviously she’s in Georgia. Gloria can’t say anything yea or nay until they talk face to face. This is bad through and through and Monday Cain said he will tell us what’s next.

I can easily envision a married man caring for another woman with his substance without telling his spouse. In fact, it would not surprise me if many men do this. It is precisely because he did not want his wife to doubt his loyalty that he quietly helped someone else. If anything I would think it strange for a man who cares for others - especially a man - 1.) to ask his wife's opinion about how or whether he should take care of someone else of the opposite sex, and 2.) to doubt his spouse would back him up if/when such a thing would come to light.

Come to think of it, a couple years ago I gave $20.00 to a young lady with whom I work; a single mother, younger than me, whom I admire, because she needed it for gas. I did not ask my wife's permission, and I have never told her. Were I Herman Cain, the amount may have been greater but the concept is the same.

I'm not going to let the implications of private decisions become fodder for public accusations. That's the business of people who like to fabricate dirt. I will have no part of that. Sorry.

Come on! You gave a single payment of $20, not month to month. Women say that it’s never the physical connection(sex) that gets to them as much as the emotional connection in a affair and I’m not accusing Herman of having an affair (if this was a year I could accept maybe but this was years after years).

Every critic on this thread repeats the same media meme “he gave money to a woman and didn’t tell his wife”.

SO WHAT

What does it even mean and who cares?

That is a major scandal?

He was accused of a sexual affair - there is no proof, ZERO - but we still gotta tar and feather him because of something that is none of our business?

Who knows or cares how he and his wife handle their private financial business?

What he was accused of is a lie. It’s not enough he has been vilified and accused without a shred of proof for 6 weeks we have to find one thing he did that we don’t understand or agree with and that’s the thing that makes him need to go away?

Sex harassment - no proof
Sex assualt - no proof
Attempted rape - no proof
Sexual Affair - no proof

None of this was his fault it was brought up or harped on.
He is innocent of every one of those charges unless and until there is PROOF otherwise. No one is even attempting to offer PROOF of those charges. None exists.

But instead of maybe being sympathetic towards a man who has been falsely accused of all those things, the vast majority of folks are gonna have this false misplaced outrage over a personal matter between him and his family?

No one here has any idea what their financial situation or way of handling such matters were and no one should care. We have a fricken meltdown in this country going on and a man who has had a successful career and marriage is being torn asunder while most of you either watch in judgment or cheer it on.

Herman Cain has been ripped apart for 6 weeks with ZERO PROOF of any one of the smears against him being proven true. This latest one has been nothing but another lie. The accusation wasn’t that he gave someone money or that his wife wasn’t aware. The charge was he was carrying on a private consensual affair. That charge has been brought forth by a woman who has offered no proof of a private consensual affair, no one to back up her story, and a history of being a complete liar and fraud.

For God sakes people get a grip.
