Politico sicks no less than FOUR reporters onto vague nearly 20 year old allegations to smear new GOP Frontrunner Herman Cain.
So desperate are the powers that be to bring down this uber-successful black businessman, that they are doing a Clarence Thomas on him, complete with sketchy allegations such as: a woman accused him of innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature and conversations that were regarded as improper in a professional relationship. Can you possibly be any more vague?
A few weeks ago a group of feminists commemorated the 20th anniversary of dopey fraudster Anita Hills pathetic testimony at the Thomas hearings, as if she is some sort of suffragette of the 90s. Now, some in the political good ol boy network are falling over themselves to put out this nothing of a story. Towards the end of their hit piece, they stated that most of the employees that worked for Cain said he was extremely professional and fair to female staffers, and
Cains treatment of women was the same as his treatment of men. Herman treated everyone great, said Mary Ann Cricchio, who was elected to the board of the restaurant group in 1998. She said Cain left such a good impression on the organization that when he spoke at a group event in January of this year, as he was considering a presidential bid, he had unanimous support in the room.The only actual names and actual statements were that Cain was fair and professional. There are no names, dates or any solid evidence whatsoever for the innuendo, vague comments and phantom female employees that settled for 5 figures.
Do not be fooled. this is NOT a leftist attack.
The Republican elites are clearly spooked big time by Herman Cain, who has catapulted into shocking leads in the Iowa, South Carolina and Florida polls, and within striking distance of Romney in New Hampshire - a state Mitt has always assumed he would win by double digits. And so they are feeding this tripe to the Washington media vultures they alternatively joust with and seduce to maintain their corruptocracy. Mitt Romney and Rick Perry would fit right in with Karl Rove and his merry band of RINOs. Herman Cain would most defintely not. And so, he must be taken out.
But on what bait would the Leftist Media bite? Why of course - the same tired racist sexual stereotypes they used against Clarence Thomas, which one would have thought would be verboten in today's climate. But for the Left, a "Black Conservative" (just as with a Hispanic conservative - ask Marco Rubio), has committed "race betrayal" - a capital offense. So they are more than happy to play along.
Conservatives need to remember well how those elites on our side have conspired with the Leftist press to try and take down this great American, Herman Cain. They need to be swept from control of the GOP, once and for all. As Vito Corleone would say: "this I will not forgive".
So now they are going to lie and create unsubstantiated claims in order to smear him. My God the fear is palpable.
Your right he is a hero to the GOP, or at least the Tea party.
I always find it both amusing and troubling when some one is accused of being an uncle tom. Uncle Tom was the hero in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Book “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”. Simon Legree was the villain but is anyone ever accused of being a Simon Legree, NOOO!
The attack by Politico is blatant racism. Black men have historically been characterized - unfairly - as abusers of women. This is racial stereotyping, pure & simple. Furthermore, everybody knows black men get a pass on any perceived abuse of “bitches & hos”.
Cain is the only black candidate in a race with 8 white candidates. Clearly Politico wants the black guy to lose, & they do NOT want to choose between a black guy & a half black in Nov. 2012. The racist Left is showing its true colors once again!
Hey, if this was an attack on a black Rat candidate, this is exactly what the Left would be saying. The Rats believe the “race card” is completely legitimate, so let’s play it often & with gusto.
“Cain would never use innuendo, like the fence will KILL YOU
It surprises me that you can spell “innuendo” since you clearly have no grasp of it’s definition.
Its the Democrat way.
This is how they maintain the Power to Rule over us.
If this is to be a scorched earth campaign then so be it.
Let their attempted media coup take place.
America may never be the same again because people will revolt.
it’s not the truth of the matter, but the seriousness of the charges...all that matters to the presstitutes.
And h-e-e-e-e-re we go. The requisite “serious charge” against Cain. Invent something and force Cain to dig his way out.
Many of us here in FR predicted this very charge would occur. Watch for more... the Left is now signaling its genuine worry about him.
It’s got mostly to do with the previous President and his un-conservative ways. He was a former Texas governor, soft-on-illegals RINO that couldn’t speak except for when he was calling the Minutemen names.
To many folks, that sounds like a current candidate running for the nomination. Personally, I love Texas. Spent a year of my life there. El Paso, San Antonio....gorgeous.
It’s your governors that make horrible Presidents.
Totally agree with this piece. This was my sense when i heard about it last night.
You think that Tokyo Rove isn’t above doing something like this?
Review what he did to Christine O’Donnell.
Easy to make accusations when you don’t have to back them up.
IT was unfair...not I. Oops.
I see the Left is up to their usual lies. Take what they do(Clinton is an example)and blame it on an innocent person. Wonder how they bribed these two women?
So this is a Rino affair too. This is why these people have to go.
Well you’ve got to admit he made some good points. And he didn’t even mention college tuition for illegals.
I don’t write the whole state off as he does, but I would say you need a real conservative in there to reverse the tide of Mexican influence.
I watched Geraldo last night and he nearly needed an oxygen tank to sustain breathing he was so excited.
He presented it as a faith accompli although Ann Coulter clearly spelled out that there was no touching, no sex, no anything really except a suggestion that some females had said he used “inappropriate language.” That could be anything from calling them “honey” up to their being in the presence of a slightly suggestive joke.
Geraldo then went after Cain’s campaign manager trying to force him to answer the question: “Did the restaurant association ever pay settlement money?” The campaign manager clearly wanted to talk about the smear and refused to answer that particular question about payments.
First, Cain might well have never even heard of any settlement organizations sometimes pay just to avoid time in court. Those things happen. The campaign manager finally agreed that Cain had no idea what the association might or might not have done.
Second, why wasn’t Geraldo asking, “Did Cain commit some act of using inappropriate language?”
Because the campaign manager could easily have denied that.
Then supposed crack lawyer, Lis Wiehl, got all excited because the campaign manager wouldn’t answer such an easy question as “did some payment get made”. How she couldn’t see through the set-up defies logic, since I’m no lawyer and I saw through it immediately.
Say that some settlement had been made. Say it had been paid to avoid a bogus charge and huge expense in time and lawyers. How do you years later answer “was it paid” on national TV and not get bludgeoned to death with the appearance of wrong when all that had happened was the use of “honey” or a compliment on “appearance” or something totally innocuous except to a gold-digger feminist looking for a chance to make cash off of an executive.
I’ve not been a great supporter of Cain, but I’m backing him to the hilt on this. I despise the camp that did this, and the only camp with reason to do so is Romney or Obama.
Cain is not Perry’s target. Perry’s target is Romney. Obama, on the other hand, benefits from injuring any candidate he might see as a threat.
This has the stink of Rove, Romney, establishment GOP oligarchs and/or Perry.
Hey, it almost worked with Clarence Thomas so it might work with Cain. Worthless RINOs. They can piss off.
Cain is the one, Cain can win.
