Murkowski praises Bialek, says Cain should quit if story true
The Politico ^ | November 8, 2011 | Alexander Burns

Posted on 11/08/2011 12:32:40 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Relatively few prominent Republican women have spoken out, so far, about the sexual harassment charges facing Herman Cain. Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski started to change that today, telling CNN that she's "concerned" about the growing list of complaints about Cain's behavior:

Murkowski made clear she was moved by the public account of Sharon Bialek, a single mother from Chicago ... "It takes incredible courage for an individual to come forward as this latest, as this one woman has," the third-term Alaskan said. "So it does cause me to wonder exactly what is out there. I am concerned." ...

Courage? She’s giggling about her new hairdo, posing like she’s at a photo shoot, smiling and waving at the camera. That’s not courage, that’s a money-grubbing publicity whore.

Murkcowski is NOT a Republican. When the vote came to Alaska the people voted in someone else, so she went independant and bribed the Native Corporations to capture the Senate Seat back.

She is a Not even RINO, she is simply sitting in a stolen Senate Seat from an election she threw using Tax money. Completely Corrupt, like her daddy before her. Real Alaskans dispise her.

SCUM of the EARTH party perhaps, somewhere below Democrat.

She’s not a Republican.

She’s not trustworthy, as she was properly bought and paid for by the Alaskan establishment.

In other words, she’s just another ignorant sl......

Way to GO GOP. You may just end up being the 1st major party to have your presidential candidate finish 3rd in 2012.

I cannot believe how politically stupid the leadership of the GOP is.

The establishment GOP is in bed with the liberal Democrats. Together, they constitute the Ruling Class. Their sole aim is to increase the size of the federal government, and in so doing to give themselves more power and wealth. Of coure the GOP is behind this!

It’s possible the GOP elite are involved but I think the primary reason for the all-out attack on Cain is that the left/Democrats know Obama is a disaster and will lose, dragging the party down with him. But under no circumstances can they allow a black conservative to beat the one who beats Obama. The Democrat Socialist Party in this country will do anything and everything they can to bring Cain down.

“It takes incredible courage for an individual to come forward as this latest, as this one woman has”

If the charge is true, yes. If not, then she’s no more courageous than a castmember on the latest reality tv show. Then again, she could be no more courageous than a reality star if it’s true, too.

Our culture has a low standard for what constitutes courage.

"a single mother"

Politically-correct speak for "tramp", "trailer trash", "slut", etc.

She got knocked up, not married, and somehow sees herself as a "role model" for her illegitimate son?

It might just be a coinky-dink that this “courageous” lass is in her second or third bankruptcy, the latest one over a relatively trifling sum, and yet is living in nice digs with a boyfriend. And it might just be chance that her story contains several “paradoxes,” like just how Herman Cain knew her specialty was mouth jobs, not more conventional hugging and kissing, and if soused, he still quit the moment she asked and drove her home (not called a cab, DROVE her home).

She comes across as flaky and profit driven as a Kellogg’s factory. If it’s the best corn flakes in America you’re making that can be understood, but if it’s flaky stories you’re trying to vend, not so much.

Mom of Murdered Obama Gay Lover Speaks Up
http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/2010/07/25/mom-of-murdered-obama-gay-lover-speaks-up/

In late May, Wash. DC-based investigative journalist Wayne Madsen had a bombshell revelation about Obama’s membership in a Chicago gay club, Man’s Country. Madsen also reported on Obama’s sexual relationships with other men, including named D.C. politicians and Donald Young, the openly-gay choir-director of the church in Chicago of which Obama was a member for some 20 years — Jeremy Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ black liberation theology. Obama’s relationship with Young was confirmed by Larry Sinclair, who claims to have had two sex-cocaine trysts with Obama.

Now that the older generation of corrupt pork-gobbling Republicans is out of office, Lisa Murkowski is the official head of the Corrupt Bastards’ Club by right of inheritance AND behavior.

Thank you, Karl Rove and RNC, for helping to bring this horrible woman back into office. Also you guys in the Senate leadership, who failed to remove her from her committees after she declared as an independent against the winner of the Republican primary.

The establishment GOP is now trying to force Cain out of the race.

First Romney makes a comment about how we should take Bialek’s accusations seriously.

Now Murkowski (a GOP insider RINO) makes a comment about Bialek being believable.

This tell me:

(1) The GOP establishment is behind this.

I’m not sure how, but they are.

(2) They’ve taken their biggest shot, and don’t have any more ammo.

The fact that Bialek’s story is falling apart today, yet the GOP establishement is backing her up tells me they don’t have anything else.

What’s the last thing we’ve heard? A new accusation that Cain asked someone to dinner—in front of a group of women—and it made them uncomfortable. And, one of the anonymous accusers is actually a highly connected Democrat (and we can believe her, but there are no details of the accusation).

Yes indeed - the ‘GOP insider’ repeated Karl Rove’s advice to Cain verbatim: get the NRA to release the settlement information.

At first I agreed - but am now suspicious the GOP elite have some plans ready to get rid of Cain and hope Mitt gets a bump.

Newt would pick up Cain’s votes - but he has the 3 wives meme. GOP elite don’t like Newt - he is a true maverick.

Republican candidate for Senate Joe Miller speaks during a rally on Nov. 1, in Anchorage, Alaska.

Ben Margot/AP

That was the Republican!

Murkycow got the write in vote after he had a "family friend" of the Murcowski political regieme judge CHANGE THE RULES so she could win! She is another clearly Illegal Politician put in power by Election Fraud just like Obama. Our country is being run by CROOKS.

It’s hard to win when you’re running agaisnt both the Democrat and Republican party.

The meme by the GOP establishment is the Tea Party is at fault for forcing inferior candidates onto the ballot. They forget:

(1) People like Rand Paul and Marco Rubio were also Tea Party candidates, and now they are “the bright future of the GOP” according to the establishment.

(2) The losing candidates would have done much better if the GOP establishment had helped them as they do other candidates. Instead, they were undercut but their own party. When a RINO is nominated, we’re expected to line up behind them for the good of the party. But, when a Tea Partier is nominated, the GOP abandons them. All Tea Partiers expect is that everyone should play by the same rules, but the GOP old-guard only wants to play by the rules when it’s to their benefit.

“It takes incredible courage for an individual to come forward as this latest, as this one woman has”

In a perverse way it does, since the photo from a month ago and eyewitness testimony shows that Ms. Bialek was very comfortable hugging and putting her arm around Mr. Cain which makes her current statements almost impossible to believe.

It does take some kind of courage to go before the nation and tell a story which depends on no one remembering or photographing what you did a month ago.

Also, I follow a lot of DC Republican folks on Twitter, and they have been unbearable this past two weeks. The party infrastructure is roaring this week. They have no idea they are only in the majority because the conservative base is done with the ‘experts’ and going with true constitutional conservatives only. They falsely think they call the shots. McCain, Bush 41, Dole, and Ford are their guys, and they all are election losers.

the rinos are willing to wait their turn to get to the trough.
