After the news of Herman Cain, it appears to me that conservatives are lost.
How can you abandoned a man on allegations yet flock over to support someone who has a history of doing worse.
It reminds me of when Jesus was being betrayed by his own people instead they wanted the guy that use to rape their women an steal from them to go free..
America, you deserve what you get in 2012. You are constantly being played like sheep to a slaughter.
We can now proceed with the plans for the New World Order for the next century...
I like cheese.
Amen, Outkast. Amen.
We could very well see a new revolution down the road.
Who moved my cheese????
He was lynched.
NEWT / CAIN 2012
I cannot deny what you have stated. I believe we are a nation whom has not been forgiven.
Only one way out.
That will most likely happen.
1) He quit. I did not abandon him.
2) He badly mishandled the situation. I don’t care if he banged this chick for 13 years behind his wife’s back.
IF HE DID: why not come out, be honest, apologize, and go back to work?
IF HE DIDN’T: why not give all the details up front rather than changing his story several times?
Sorry, Cain did this to himself. He had an opportunity, regardless of the details, but he blew it.
Outkast, I am sick about what they did to Mr. Cain. I got a few tears in my eyes today over the outrageous treatment of a good man and the resultant, stupid fallout of the sheeple. It’s sickening.
Give us Barrabas, indeed!
And just how is he wrong?
The thing is Jesus actually had a public ministry that people could judge. Cain had nothing but words that he would govern as a conservative, or would be actually be able to govern at all.
We could very well see a new revolution down the road.
If 0bama is reelected, we’ll see a lot of anger and it could get ugly. Many people aren’t going to see their country be taken down and not react.
But your boy Newt's words are good as gold, right?
Amen, OUTKAST, Amen.
He's part of a cabal of top Democrats who are acting in a conspiracy to DUMP OBAMA. They know he can't win the next election. They fear that his presence on the ticket will take down all their Representatives, Senators, Governors and members of legislatures up for election at the same time.
If Obama is not removed they fear the Democrat party will be put out of business for generations.
Cain on OUR Republican ticket keeps Obama on THEIR Democrat ticket. If Cain can get nominated as President or Vice President, the Democrats feel they are stuck with Obama.
At some level Obama knows that and his buddies made sure Mr. Cain received Secret Service protection.
I suspect that unless Cain steps aside in this campaign you're going to see the Democrats create a "rape" rape charge on the man (with no legitimate basis), and if that doesn't work they may try to assassinate him.
What about words like global warming?
Nah. Cain was in a tie with Bachmann in my mind with Santorum as an acceptable alternate. Never get too attached to any single candidate.
I’m still holding firm to my tea party principles.
Ah, let's party instead.
His bungling response to simple foreign policy questions did not help either. In fact, it was after such recent responses that his poll numbers dropped. They did not drop after the initial SH allegations. Whether we like it or not, some of his wounds were self inflicted.
Cain did not even try to defend himself. He should have demanded this accuser produce some sort of proof, but nooo.
I don't think he will make is in office to the election. He is juggling too many plates and they will all fall to the floor. There is a long time until the election and many things may happen. Too much corruption for even some of the democrats.
Cain needed to respond like a honey badger...but he didn't.
And why didn't he? It's complicated I think.
Complicated my @ss...honey badger ain't complicated.
I dearly love who I thought Herman was...but he ain't the honey badger!
He did it to himself. The brain freeze on Libya. I can speak for several minutes on Libya and am not running for president.
Giving money to an obviously disturbed woman without discussing with his wife.
999 was going nowhere, people do not trust the Feds with a sales tax.
Herman Cain was abandoned because HE suspended his campaign????
This is pure idiocy to say the least!!
A president can't quit. He couldn't take the heat. It's better to know now, not when lives or the nation are at stake. It doesn't matter if he's better than Obama. I've heard it said that any of the Republican candidates are an improvement. Maybe so. However, in my estimation, he is not good enough.
does anyone know if we can post a link to a video on this site as its own thread?
I have never thought of doing that, I just think this video is cool.
Flock of Eagles come for dinner
We’re not voting for a Priest....but a POTUS.
Mankind already blew their chance at choosing Perfection.
The really cool part was that they couldn’t keep Him dead....
Blessed are the cheese makers.
He was abandoned well before today’s announcement because a boatload of so-called conservatives drank the DNC and MSM Kool-Aid.
Is there a Bachmann ping list? I haven’t seen one.
I can’t believe the Tea Party worked their A$$ off in 2010 to get this crap sandwich of choosing between two RINOs for the nomination. Bachmann or Santorum should be winning this thing hands down.
Glad to see someone else is too!
Iran will happen before the election. Hold on for the ride of your life both domestically and overseas...
Glad you enjoy the present tax code.
He quit, time to suck up bucko and take it like a man and move on.
Cain was vulnerable or he would have mustered an effective defense.
How was he vulnerable...I don't know. But his unwillingness to fight to the death (of Alexrod) was evidence of something that perhaps we'll never know.
Don't blame the enemy. Take responsibility.
If Cain was kicked out...tough sh!t. He should have evaluated his weaknesses before he got into the fight.
I think he is a good man...but a human being like the rest of us.
As Clauswitz said: "politics is war" (I paraphrase). Herman underestimated the brutality of American politics.
Got that right. The High Level DC Hack Gingrich has a ton of baggage. Yet, Cain is given a high tech lynching.
God help us. But we cannot leave our children to inherit a country that is not free.
He was run out on a rail by RINO-lovers. Period.
Add me to the list.
Sorry all that matters to some is the sanctity of their SS checks (they are entitlements), no matter that they contributed 1/3rd of what they’re taking back out. For others, their ox might get gored if the necessary steps were ever taken to actually balance the budget. Or if we actually closed the border, some people might actually have to pay their employees a living wage.
I’d take Bachmann in a heartbeat, but if she started rising in the polls again, the status-quo nitwits would Cain her to death as well. Conservatives wonder why nothing good ever comes out of DC? It’s because the same morons keep putting the same bunch of feckless lowlifes back in power year, after year, after year.
Bring us Barabbas!
