SFGate.com ^ | 11/8/11 | AP

Posted on 11/08/2011 10:30:17 AM PST by NormsRevenge

Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney says allegations that rival Herman Cain groped a former employee are "particularly disturbing" and must be addressed.

Romney told ABC News/ Yahoo! on Tuesday that he will not judge whether Sharon Bialek's claims against Cain are true. He declined to say whether they are disqualifying.

...

Romney .. "These are serious allegations and they're going to have to be addressed."

No, what is disturbing is your willingness to go along to get along.

Newt is the only one to call this out as the media witch-hunt that it is.

The rest of ‘em (including the insufferable Bachmann) can take a hike.

Well look how well it worked for all the other candidates (not).

Gingrich and Ron Paul are the only two who took the high road on this mud slinging circus.

Please forgive me, by UFCK ROMNEY! For real. And I say that as someone who thinks Cain is in trouble and that there might be something to these allegations.

But for this CS to chime in like this right now, I say Eff him. Seriously, I can't support Romney, sorry.

I find RINOmney particularly disturbing.

I also note a typical RINOmney response...no real feelings there, just a bland statement that says nothing.

Obviously, he’s lubricating his wind vane so that it’ll rapidly and smartly react to whichever way the Cain wind is blowing.

Shove it up your smelly Obama, RINOmney. Why not just run as the Cretin-in-Chief’s VP in 2012?

...he [Romney] will not judge whether Sharon Bialek's claims against Cain are true.

"These are serious allegations and they're going to have to be addressed."

How do you address an allegation if it is false?

This is so phony. I suspect Romney is behind this one(versus Perry, who is likely responsible for the previous ones.)

If the Establishment Republicans and MSM get away with this one, do we really have a chance?

Don't let them get away with it.

That's the final straw ..

That's the one final statement coming out of Romney's mouth that leads me to say that, if he's the Republican nominee for President, for the first time in my life, I will not cast a vote for the office of President. I will make my vote in all of other boxes on the ballot, but, now, I will NOT .. repeat, NOT .. vote for Romney in any circumstance.

So, Romney finally comes out from underneath his rock and opens his pie hole and it’s about this issue? As much as I’m against the idea that it would be better to let Obama win over voting for Romney, I may be coming around.

They won't get away with it THIS TIME. And they're too dumb to know that. Either we get a conservative nominee this time or we go 3rd Party. Either way Romney, Rove, and the rest of the establishment LOSES. Period.

Way to ensures that if you do get the GOP nomination in 2012 you will finish third behind 0bama and the Tea Party candidate, Mitt.

Mitt may just be the last GOP Presidential candidate in US History at the rate the GOP Establishment is going

It’s good to see the GOP leadership start rejecting bad behavior amongst its own party ranks.

Welcome to Free Republic. Saying anything that could be interpreted as complimentary to Willard Romney around here is kind of like lighting a joint in church. The congregation will be along shortly to ask you to step outside.

P.S. Willard may be, as you described him, a leader in the GOP, however he has never led a conservative. He has met some conservatives, however he has escaped their presence without ever getting infected with conservatism.

—Romney .. “These are serious allegations and they’re going to have to be addressed.”—

Man, if that doesn’t deserve a captain obvious, I don’t know what does.

That said, he can address and destroy non-credible claims, but if they keep coming, he’ll have to take a different tack of lumping them all together as a single smear and addressing them accordingly.

It’s particularly disturbing that Cain supported Romney in 2008 and now he throws one of his avid supporters under the bus!

If Romney is the GOP candidate I will not vote for him.

I am just spitting mad!

Romney has his own skeletons (not to mention allowing illegals to work on his property).

Walid Phares, the recently announced co-chair of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Middle East advisory group, has a long résumé. College professor. Author. Political pundit. Counterterrorism expert. But there’s one chapter of his life that you won’t find on his CV: He was a high ranking political official in a sectarian religious militia responsible for massacres during Lebanon’s brutal, 15-year civil war.
