All he can do is go one way or the other.

why should he?

he’s up in the polls.

he’s an honest, God-fearing man, attacked by the

democrat-progressives and rino-progressives.

and you have the nerve to drink their kool aid.

Because he is not _____________(insert name of posters candidate) who will zoom straight up in the polls once Cain is gone...

Be interesting to see if he goes “the media is all against me” or “here is my categorical listing of why these accusations are wrong”...

I wonder what the story is going to be about Romney ten months from now. Sexual harassment, DUI, adultery, drug use? Have any guesses?

Are you serious? He is the best conservative we have. Sure Bachmann and Santorum are extremely great conservatives and patriots but don’t have the support. Who is your candidate? Liberal Romney or Perry? Why are you on this site. Support for liberals are not conservative ideals.

Look, there are too many women reporting against him. Settlements were paid, so all of these stories couldn’t have been made up. Did they make up the stories 14 years ago to discredit a possible run by Hermon for the Presidency now?

Really like this guy, but he wasn’t vetted in a national election before. Now we are seeing his weaknesses. How can he run now that the stories have specific names attached to them?

It’s weird how some people run like hell as soon as the commie ‘RATS come out with a trumped up “scandal”. Someday, Americans are going to have to learn how to stand their ground against the commie ‘RATS. Americans used to do that. Hopefully, Cain will do just that tomorrow.

Mitt Romney stinks. But if you want Obama to win in 2012, you want Herman Cain to be the GOP nominee. Don’t shoot the messenger, but no Republican can get elected President with all of this out there about Cain.

Sorry, pal, we are OVER letting the media dictate who our candidates are. Cain is a decent man and he has every right to tell the media he’s not going to play their game and just carry on with his serious business of getting to where he can work to solve out nation’s myriad problems.

Why should he? If more people believe the vague revolving stories and the bimbo that gave her absolutely suspect press conference (evidently being complemented on her hair was more important than the seriousness of what she was there for), then the funding will dry up and he’ll fall in the polls. I think they’ve way overplayed their hand but time will tell. I see no reason why the current front runner should leave, that’s just silly.

Nah. My advice up to know has been shut up to anonymous accusers. Unfortunately, someone showed up with a face. Now he needs to go directly at it, take questions, and have a consistent story that won’t have to be walked back or modified in coming days. A “the media is against me story” is good for fundraising, but won’t stop the bleeding.

Listen, I hate to break it to you, but Cain handling this poorly makes ALL conservatives look bad. This crap is burying our message. It has to be nipped in the bud.

Hey Einstein...this guy also made a Senatorial run and these women never came out of the woodwork. Oh yeah, why didn't they come out a couple of months ago when he was way down in the GOP primary polls?

Sad schmucks like you are siding with a liberal rag like Politico that never produced a person, an allegation with any specifics. Also, these weren't settlements...they were severance packages.

Do you REALLY think that the eventual frontrunner (if not Cain) will not get the same treatment? Get a grip. Dubya, Jack Ryan, the list goes on and on. Man up and take a stand.

all of this out there about Cain.

"All that is out there"? Are you serious? Unfounded leftist attacks on the most conservative Republican in the race is "all that is out there". I understand and expect such things to be effective in swaying the minds of the left, but I can't understand why they would be effective in swaying any thinking person who is on the right. Good show.

I am still with Cain. This latest story sounds too cliché to be real.

It looks like it was carefully designed to turn off female Republican voters.

Nixon took bribes. Goldwater was nuts. Ford was a klutz. Hershenson went to a titty bar. Bush had a DUI. Schwarzenegger chased skirt. Whitman abused illegals. Palin snorted coke. Perry had a rock with the N word on it. Gingrich cheated on his wife. Romney’s a crazy Mormon. What Pubbie has NOT been accused of heinous crimes?

You’re saying four baseless allegations of he-said/she-said scenarios TRUMP double-digit total unemployment, losing Iraq, ignoring Iran nuking up, residing over the 1t downgrade of our credit in history, letting four Middle East nations fall under radical Islamist control, putting guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels, prosecuting states for defending their borders, etc. etc. etc. -——what the hell are you smoking??????????????

Sorry , pal, even if he wins in the primaries he doesn’t stand a chance against Obama and his friends in the MSM.

What names? And what about all those “names”, including plenty of women some of whom worked very closely with him that say no way this happened. Somebody would know. With the exception of one anonymous woman and some lawyer who say they saw Cain being to friendly at this party (unfortunately the “everyone” he said saw this didn’t), there are no more witnesses. In fact after they made the “I saw it” accusations they had to admit they never SAW this woman get in a cab with Cain. Would he be in a cab and not a limo as one would expect of a CEO? The allegations would have been proved to have merit. They didn’t.

Companies have made a mistake by just paying off anyone who yells sexual harassment, discrimination.... Now anyone can just say it and make money. I saw it first hand where I worked. It made me sick to see good, decent and innocent people (all men) lied about and either get a terrible transfer or lose their jobs. These people may get away with this now, but one day God will show all people the truth.

I think the first 3 allegations were probably weak and looked like they were only after money, so they did not want to come forward with those. Let people “think” they were all as bad as this one. I bet someone offered money (who's that playboy magazine guy who offered money with dirt on republicans) to anyone who would come out against Cain. After 2 bankruptcys & taking her baby's dad to court for child support, she needed money bad. Wonder if she can be paid a higher amount to tell the truth? Or is she evil, just like the rest of the left?

-

I’d bet the Dems plan on demolishing Romney for downsizing. Completely neutralizing and in fact turning the economy on the GOP candidate.

They’ve probably already created the commercials. All they’re waiting for is the right time.

Except that pesky Herman Cain keeps getting in the way of their plans. :D

Go Cain!

This is going to be a real gut check for the other GOP candidates. All should come out and defend Cain. Cain is not my guy, but we should not give the Marxist media veto power over who our nominee is. They did this to Newt in the 90’s, to Palin in 2008 and now the same to Cain in 2012? Enough! No more will these slime attacks be tolerated.

The MSM have lost their strangle hold on the message. There are too many alternative sources for turning out the vote. A committed, engaged electorate is more powerful than they are at this point.
