only someone confident of the truth would be confident to answer questions like this in a press conference.

“Sexual harassment is serious and not something I’ve tolerated under my leadership.”

“There was no legal settlement, no basis to any accusation of harassment. They were found to be baseless. There was an agreement between the NRA and her that ended up being a personnel decision.”

I can believe that statement is true. No one has put forward a demonstrable fact in the last two weeks, including yesterday.

All we heard were allegations. They do not rise to the level of a verifiable fact and one can deny them.

First of all, I’ve gotten PLENTY of pictures with people who do not know me from Adam. Any supposed picture proves NOTHING, unless these are pics of intimate nature or of big name donors.

Second, the picture supposedly in question has been studied and is apparently not the Allred client, but another woman.

I am amazed how much so many people want to believe the media and not the conservative candidates.

The press will do this to EVERY SINGLE CANDIDATE ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE. ALL OF THEM.

CNN says he would take a lie detector test.

What's next --- a DNA smear?

Haven't we had ENOUGH of this? What are we longing for the Clinton years??

Thanks for coming Herman --- sorry you so much of your past caught up with you --- sorry you're now the target of probably lies --- but, please---take your 999 plan and leave the stage. We have a country to save.

That is true only if records that old still exist.

I maintain the man is innocent. He has not been convicted in a court of law and he has earned the right to defend his reputation.

Until I see a fact that proves he did something wrong come to light, I’m backing Cain.

It does make me sick too.

Calling the allegations “troubling.” What a bunch of garbage, GOP candidates.

Yes, the allegations should be addressed. But they are not “troubling” until there is some there there, which there is not at the moment.

The other candidates are so afraid of not appearing sympathetic to women, which comes off as just a bunch of insincere, PC patronizing, not something that actually helps the standing of women in the workplace.

Press Question: “Where is this coming from?”

“It’s coming from people that don’t want to see Herman Cain be the Republican Nominee and people that don’t want to see Herman Cain be President.”

“I imagine there will be others (coming out of the woodworks), not because I know of any, but because I expect this treatment to continue.”

LMAO, why not, Clinton did, wagging his finger, I did not have sexual relations with that woman..........

So, to the intellectually weak, anyone who denies sexual relations (or harassment) is guilty.

Thanks for the education.

The real point is that there’s a lib-instigated media witch hunt going on.

The only tactic they’ve got is to throw as much crap as fast as possible and hope the weak minds out there start doing exactly what you’re sitting there posting about.

The punks are doing exactly to Cain what they’ve already done to Palin, Bork, Thomas.....and BTW a whole bunch of guys like me, and all you’ve got is moaning about your fine sensibilities getting bruised.

“Oh dear, what will I do?”

Bull****. Maybe you should go smell the coffee, if you take anything that strong.

Cain says ‘there will probably be others [women] who come forward [with similar accusations], because the machine that doesn’t want a businessman in the White House is in full force.’

[Reporter says the ‘machine’ is a Democrat operation.]

Cain cannot identify who is behind the ‘machine’.

Herman is very good on his feet but he’s kind of committed himself to a lie detector test which is a no win situation. He should walk that one back a bit.

I could shake his hand say few words and he wouldn’t recall meeting me.

He is meeting a few hundred people a day at this point.

This is the only pic I've seen referenced.

But according to the caption it's not the accuser, it's the woman who says she saw them together.

Is there another pic somewhere?

Actually I think this is good. I'd put this man up against Bammy any day of the week.

Bammy doesn't handle press conferences this well and he has a fawning media.

settlement and agreement...kind of reminds me of Slick Willy saying he ‘did not have sex with that woman’ and later saying he did not consider oral sex , ‘sex’...Semantics in my opinion. There was a legal ‘agreement’ whereby the NRA paid cash and Herman did not have to admit guilt.

Cain worked for the NRA for three years and there were two ‘settlements’. That troubles me. As a manager of over 25 years overseeing 100’s of employees in the workplace, I can say I have never had ONE complaint against me of sexual harassment.

He said he had never met her,,how about the photos of them together last month

"Mr. Cain, I would love to have my picture taken with you", I say, having never met him before. "Why, sure, I'd be glad to". Smile for the camera. Now, I have "proof" that he met me, and we are BFF's. Get real. How many thousands of people does he meet casually? Do you really expect him to remember every one of them?

I wasn’t talking about a pic. I was talking about a reporter seeing them together a month ago.

I’ll Google it for you if you like. She was on Beck’s program today, if I remember correctly.

I was referring the poster to that. Not a pic.

I’m hearing a man say he did nothing wrong.

And he’s willing to take a lie detector test if his accuser will agree to do the same.

That doesn’t sound to me like a man seeking to get away with it.

Cain is more principled than Clinton who lied under oath to a court of law about an affair he had at the time.

I like that man more now than I did before.

I say this as one who has not supported Cain in his quest for the nomination (nothing personal; certainly nothing ideological; but an electoral record consisting solely of losing [badly] a GOP primary Senate race did not make me think he was the best candidate). But I am absolutely convinced of Cain's innocence. His presentation tonight, so far, has been extraordinarily good.

Like many here, I'm still looking for NotMitt. I currently lean toward Newt (warts and all), but Cain is doing himself a lot of good this afternoon, and I am more inclined, not less, to consider voting for him by the time the NC Primary comes around.

That’s the only way they can play it. Can’t use the homo line due to that being so close to the truth regarding Barry. Maybe Cain’s advisers start a blowback to the dnc regarding Barry’s sexuality or lack thereof.
