Skip to comments.Hill GOP Gives Herman Cain Warm Reception
Posted on 11/03/2011 11:39:13 AM PDT by mandaladon
Outsider Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is spending a tumultuous week in Washington courting the GOP establishment. And, at least for now, it seems that the establishment likes him despite allegations of sexual harassment that continue to surface.
Following a series of private meetings with the Georgia businessman early in the week, Republican Members pronounced themselves impressed with Cain and unconcerned about the sexual harassment claims that have dogged the White House hopeful since Politico reported them Sunday. Cain spoke today with Members in several private settings as he sought to boost support for his campaign, sell his controversial 9-9-9 tax overhaul and simply introduce himself to an audience of strangers.
However, a media horde trailed Cain at every stop and sought to get him to comment on sexual harassment allegations and a sealed settlement that occurred while Cain was head of the National Restaurant Association during the 1990s. While Cain was making the rounds on Capitol Hill, the Associated Press broke news that a third woman now claims Cain acted inappropriately toward her when she worked at the association, and a GOP pollster who supports Texas Gov. Rick Perrys presidential campaign told an Oklahoma radio station that he personally witnessed Cain sexually harassing a female employee of the restaurant group in the late 1990s.
But Sen. Richard Burr (N.C.), who was among 10 Republican Senators to attend a private Tuesday evening dinner with Cain, said the presidential candidate is positioned to be a major factor in the primary if his campaign is not derailed by the harassment charges and his poor handling of the flap.
I think hes a very impressive candidate, Burr said. Hes got an impressive business record, and I think we will all wait to see how he weathers the current onslaught of these accusations.

Thank God that President Obama appointed Leon Panetta to blow up the al-Qaeda and Taliban thugs. As CIA chief, Panetta has served the president extremely well and largely taken foreign policy criticism off the election table. Mr. Obama got lucky with Mr. Panetta. The president has been unlucky in other advisory areas.
So, experience does matter. Voting for any political candidate is a gamble. But supporting one who is light on policy achievement is a long-shot play.
President Herman Cain will do well to appoint Duncan Hunter to a job like National Security etc...
Oh and President Abraham Lincoln managed very well many years before there ever was a modern day Olympics
PS Who is the puerile j*ckass who keeps tagging Cain stories with "Herb (sic) Cain". Is this supposed to be some kind of joke? I guess some Freeper's 12 year old kid somehow got the keys to the computer. Pathetic. Oh well, I guess it is the stress of falling hopelessly behind in the polls, gotta have an outlet somehow.
