Good interview with Greta Van Susteran. Not only on the Cain smear, but also good tactics to respond to such charges and then a sidebar discussion on the sorry state of the American Economy, current markets, China, unfair trade, buying the LA Dodgers, etc. etc.

They don’t take out Cain now before January, the Cain Train’ will be unstoppable. I guess this is the best that Rahm/Perry/Soros/ MSM have in mind.

I’ll take Cain over zero/romney but what do you expect from him? Reagan? I don’t see it. A little better than Bush won’t cut it. You’re all infatuated w him because he’s all we have left. IMHO.

Nah. I mean what choice do we have here? Bachmann isn;t making any noise and can’t win in the polls. Palin’s gone, so we all pinch our noses again like in 2008 when voting for RIno MCCain or see where the primaries lead. At this point alone, Perry’s gone and the lib media keeps pushing Mittney to our faces..

Cain may not be Reagan, but he’s unsoiled by Washington. If Little Stevie Dunham can get in, Cain can get in and choose those around him to help him.
I didn’t think he had a chance by virtue of his skin color AFTER the obamanation. But, he’s not OF Washington which makes him MORE than palatable. Little Stevie is made of sh*t and is attempting to make America sh*t.
Romney loves himself. Obama loves Reggie Love. Manchelle loves food. Hillary loves that Moslem intern of hers. Perry loves illegals. Cain loves this country.

I’m not trying to be hard on Cain. My problem is that when the devil’s afterbirth is in our highest office the best we can come up with is Cain/Gingrich/Perry/Santorum/Bachmann/Paul/Huntsman. The people who should’ve been able to knock out zero, Ryan, Rubio, Demint, said no. That should tell you something. Something bad is happening.

What’s my bias? If Cain is your idea of the perfect Presidential candidate then the bias is yours. He is politically inexperienced. He’ll have to learn a lot on the job. Surrounding himself with a lot of experience will just result in a lot of power plays. He’s the most inexperienced in the field. I’ll take him over zero for sure but he’s a loose cannon, more than you will acknowledge.
To be perfectly honest, no one in their right minds would want to be President the next 4 years considering the decisions that’ll have to be made.

I don’t recall anyone claiming anything about a “perfect Presidential candidate” except you.

“He is politically inexperienced.” And Romney, Gingrich, Paul, and Perry are politically experienced.

“loose cannon”? “more than you will acknowledge.” You haven’t seen a loose cannon, have you? There’s nothing to acknowledge. You’re the only one who believes he’s a loose cannon; not those interested in Herman Cain’s platform and candidacy.

“To be perfectly honest, no one in their right minds would want to be President the next 4 years considering the decisions that’ll have to be made.”

I am relieved to know that you’re the only individual who believes this.

Your bias is that you don’t support Herman Cain. And you’ll resort to illogical reasoning in an attempt to substantiate a point.

Trump said “Herman” should bring a “MAJOR lawsuit” — three times he said it.

I wonder if The Donald will support Cain by providing him with a kick-ass opposition research team.

Apparently “you’re an idiot” is a sufficient retort.

Why am I a Cain supporter?

The man has successfully ran a large business, has improved a failing business.

The man is staunchly prolife and is willing to defund obamacare and planned parenthood.

The man just gets it when he says that stupid people are ruining america.

And you expect to sway someone by insulting them? Good luck sir!

Apparently the force is not with you this night, BenKenobi. I’m not trying to sway anyone. TwoSwords apparently has taken up a cause in that regard.

Perhaps you’ll indulge me and read the exchanges between TwoSwords and I, and follow it with a more coherent reply.

I don’t think Cain wants to play dirty politics. I think it’s beneath him personally. He’s a man of God.

However, a kick-ass research and legal team supplied by Trump could be used to defend against all the future attacks that we know will be coming. First research Cain, and find out what the opposition may have on him. But if there’s nothing there, then they can be waiting in the wings to defend and advise Cain on any future made-up attacks.

Like Gingrich said, Cain should have simply said: “I will review the issue with my staff and we will have a statement in a few days.” And then he should STOP talking until they prepare the statement, then STICK to the statement.

The process has played out leaving Cain at the top of the list.

If Sarah Palin had decdided to run, I would have had her at the top of my list, but now its Herman Cain.

Reading through this thread and have to say you are seriously mistaken since your posts are the most idiotic on display. Also your response to the poster you call an idiot is completely uncalled for and proves your inability to discuss your points without personal venom and attack. So yes you win most idiotic poster on this thread.

He is not inexperienced. Just because he isn't a paid politican doesn't mean he is not experienced.

Just not in ways those that got us into all this debt are experienced...who wants more of them?

Cain doesn't have to prove malice against people who aren't journalists. If the respondents were newspapers and newspapermen, he would.

That poster was not showing any bias.....Cain has no experience, and his performance in the private sector is over rated when you look at the actual numbers of Godfathers.....

Keep taking your dumass’ to new levels. Idiot.

So by ALL of our experiences with experienced politicians, who is the "dumass"?

One who professes we accept another experienced politician to solve the problems, or one who looks to break the cycle of public abuse with an experienced and successful businessman with a long record of fixing the problems he was hired to.

Geez, what a really tough decision to make. Einstein offered the perfect definition to your solution.

Ryan, Rubio, Demint,

Ryan has the same problem that Bachmann has, he's a congress critter and never even been elected state wide.

Rubio has been a US Senator for 9 months and while he is attractive as a person, his resume isn't overwhelming.

Jim DeMint is one of my favorite senators but in order to get elected in today's TV and internet world, you've got to have a "visual presence" and unfortunately, Jim DeMint doesn't have it.

I'd take any of the three over obummer, but getting elected isn't a cake walk.

The charges may well be false but with the Restaurant Association having settled with the women I don't think that Cain can now come back now and sue, say they were lying.

What do you think it tells us? Throw in Palin. The message to me is that these people don’t think they could win this time around.

Do you think MSM is pushing Romney because they think Obama can beat him? That’s scary.

Something bad is happening.

Yes, something wicked this way comes. My tagline but it's not just Hussein but everyone around him. Congress isn't rocking the boat and SCOTUS is evading it. On down the line, the GOP seriously didn't want this current admin and this time is giving us has beens like Romney, they're proving without a doubt they're in on it, too. Cain's the only one not tarnished by The Hill. He's on top of the polls and all the movers and shakers are scared out of their minds that their house of cards will come crashing down.

The only thing left is to ask what wickedness is coming? Horrifying as it is, it's already here and arrived on 9/11.
