“The survey was conducted on Tuesday night following two days of media coverage concerning allegations of sexual harassment against Cain.”...
Ha! Ha!, Liberal media!
Somewhere Tokyo Rove erases his board...
...and puts something nastier on it.
I’m relishing seeing these RINOs flail around, making stuff up, twisting his words:
See “nuclear capability” of China. So, I’m to believe that a former ballistics missile technician doesn’t know that China has nuclear weapons, which he never said.
He only slightly misspoke by not clarifying...”capability”, which I’m sure, he meant to say more accurate ICBM technology etc.
Oh well, the Cain train is now breaking out away from Romney.
Is a scandal which barely moves the needle really a scandal?
WOO HOO! GO HERMAN!!!
Gingrich is creeping up too; 15% isn’t great, but it’s within striking distance. He’s had some recent appearances and local TV coverage in South Carolina that might have helped.
SC Cain ping....
The Cain Sexual Harassment smear doesn’t have legs. America already tolerated and rewarded a known sexual-harasser, philaderer, and perjurer without any qualms. Americans generally don’t care that much about even obvious and un-contested sexual misconduct. Most people at their workplaces have been through sexual harassment seminars, and I think people have this conception that, while there are indeed situations with perverts who cross the line, said line is intentionally vague in order to benefit trial lawyers and serial suers who want money without work.
I just gave Cain $100 yesterday. Screw Rove and Romney!
But, but $h!t R0mney is the only electable candidate!!
So says the GOP and Karl “The Worm” Rove, the Masters of Win!
Vague and unsourced innuendos is a more actionable offense than giving an employee a BJ.
Only in the liberals’ world!
I think we should start referring to this as a “SILMO”
Scandal In Liberal Minds Only
I am litterally shaking !
Take THAT Rove and Romney!
The “scandal” helped Cain more than it hurt him. It clearly showed that the establishment is out to destroy him.
They scream scandal but all Cain did was make a comment about a woman’s height decades ago. Weak attacks are worse than no attacks from the standpoint of the attacker.
Now we are on the CAIN TRAIN!!!
...ain't America grand?
The Elite can go to their cirner and cry now. Good for us. Good for Herman
For once in his life, Dick Morris was right. He should circle the date on his calendar. LOL
Wonder what rove will be sputtering about today.
Wanna bet the media coverage gets,even worse? They and certain members of the GOP aren’t done savaging Rev. Cain yet.
Perry’s numbers are apparently too low to mention.
Sheesh, this has got to be one of the BEST campaign contribution generating mechanisms I have ever seen in American politics. Brilliant. They are solidifying and rallying Herman's loyal conservative base now growing into the millions nationwide, ironically, by trying to slime him.
I used to think so highly of Rove. It's disappointing seeing him mudsuck conservative choices.
I held my nose voting for McCain last time. Not this time. I will not vote for a candidate who does not espouse conservative principals.
The Republican Aristocracy hanging out at the Union League Club, act like dieties casting their lightning bolts from Mount Olympus. They had better realize they will never win a major election again without support of America's CONSERVATIVES.
People like Cain and believe him.
Either that, or we’re so desperate for a real leader in the White House that we don’t care even if he porks farm animals.
I was thinking today that although I’m a Cain guy...there is a feasible scenario where Newt could (electorally speaking) become the McCain of this cycle, winning by default.
I don’t wanna jinx anything, but 10 points is landslide territory.
As an added bonus, Scooby Doo Villian Ron Paul is nowhere to be found.
These numbers will be substantially different 2 weeks from now. Cain has blown it big time and it may just be his terrible reaction to these allegations rather tahn the allegations themselves that sink him. His story has changed daily. At first I wrote that off to being blindsided by politico but them found out that he and his campaign had 10 days notice that this story was coming and they STILL fumbled like this. It’s really difficult to believe that there’s nothing there when you get this kind of response from the Cain campaign.
Espousing ain't enough for me anymore. I'm looking for evidence of demonstrated commitment to them as well.
Please, PLEASE somebody post the pic of Herman grinning at the end of the smoking ad.

Rove, honey. Is that you? Best go back on home now. This is a POST SCANDAL poll. People have had all the time they need to make a decision about Cain and his reaction. His reaction was just fine.
I been sayin’ it and sayin’ it . . . ain’t I been sayin’ it? (Cue Randy Quaid from “Independence Day”): if Cain comes in a strong second in IA and doesn’t get completely blown out in NH, he will win SC and FL. Then Willard is in deep doo.
> He only slightly misspoke by not clarifying...capability
Yes, but it’s okay for Barry Odinga-dildo 0bamarx to tour the 57 states of the US.
The hypocrisy of the Media is unbounded.
Any Repub who was a part of the smear should step aside.

Thanks very much, everyone!
Even still he's my second choice and I HOPE he survives this attack but I don't think he will.
If Cain goes down you will have a big problem. Perry is no longer of any relevance and this is not about to change no matter what happens to Cain. If Cain goes down, which I don't think will happen, the race will be between Gingrich and Romney.
What do you want to bet? My money is still on Perry to win the nomination. I propose that you make a donation to FR if he wins and I'll make a donation if he doesn't. I'm already a monthly donor so this will be an additional donation. how does $50.00 sound?
What did Morris say? The Tea Party followers are definitely in Cain's camp. I want Cain to crush the RINOclass.
Romney will never step aside. He's been running for President since 2006!
I am convinced now that Cain has been railroaded,and he may just be the best guy left standing...However I did not believe the liberal MSM polls before, and still do not now
Make no mistake, Rasmussen and Fox are both liberal polls as well!
There are no honest pollsters, MSM/REP EST they all have an agenda
Any talk about the nuclear navy about the propulsion systems that keep carriers deployed for very long times.
OK...we can call a winner whenever any candidate wins enough delegates to ensure the nomination! Either way FR gets a donation...
I can’t speak for others, but the slithering GOP will never have my support again.
I don’t believe that they are this stupid and strategically inept. That would mean they are quite simply the largets collection of blithering moron politicans ever assembled, but that is not the case.
They are in league with the democrats, they are doing this on purpose, this is kabuki theater designed to fool us.
Game is over, GOP.
Right you are.
And the interesting thing is that this is the only tactic they know of, which guarantees even more Cain lies and half-truths, which will inturn solidify and widen his base even more.
On the rock, Cain said that the name of the camp was insensitive and this was twisted to make it out that he called Perry insensitive. I believe this echos what Perry said about the rock.
On the debate question, I thought I remembered “as a businessman” being in there, but cannot seem to locate any verifiable copy of the question and answer.
9-9-9 may not be perfect, but it sure has got the others responding with ideas - as a leader should do.
I put a monthly reminder on my Outlook calendar starting in March and added a note to remind/notify you if I need to make the donation.
