This just makes me sad. I know it’s politics, but it makes me sad.
I guess the smear campaign is working.
But we’ve got a full year before the election.
Lots of time for all sorts of things. Including martial law, and suspending the electoral process indefinitely.
but we are in the first furlong.
Herman hired a good lawyer to refute and challenge these bimbos. The Rats know they have an issue so will have a new one to tout out every time news of the previous one dies down. Hopefully the public will get tired of this after a while and begin to look beyond the charge.
This is not an “I told you so” because I still think Cain is positioned well and I support him 100%.
But this is one of the major reasons I wanted Sarah Palin to run. She has been through 3 years of fire and all the ammo is gone.
Cain is just starting to get hit with things, and if some sticks to him, it will hurt him. Plus, every day he has to play defense is a day he can’t be pushing forward.
He will just have to weather this storm and see where he sits at the end of the day.
I’ll bank on the zero attention span of the public. As soon as the MSM chokes on this and moves on, watch those numbers quickly change.
HotAir has become one of the LEAST objective bloggers in this race. Here are all the polls taken in the last week:
Rasmussen Poll (taken 11/3/11 - Cain 26%, Romney 23%, Gingrich 14%)
Newsmax/InsiderAdvantage Iowa Caucus Poll (Cain 30%, Romney 15%, Gingrich 12%, Paul 9%, Bachmann 8%)

Gingrich is starting to look better to me. He admitted that sitting on the couch with Pelosi was “stupid”. Gingrich would eviscerate 0bama in a debate. Most important of all, Gingrich is not Romney. That is just my opinion.
If only 0bama could freeze this moment and fast forward to 1 year from now.
So the left gives Herman Cain the Tom Robinson treatment, and we’re the racists.
The Left is doing to Herman Cain what they wrongly claimed the Right would do to Obama.
That makes me sad.
I’ll be voting for Herman, and no one else.
I’m not surprised. After two weeks of relentless vilification of Cain, the state-controlled media finally got the results it wanted. They hope to scare Republicans into nominating Slick Willard. After all, the poll does show him as “electable.”
Hint: nominate the guy we prefer or else!
Cain is going to beat the pants off obama. All we gotta do is help him get through the primary.
The charges concerned me less then his bumbling response. He knew up to ten days in advance Politico had the story and still was utterly unprepared to deal with the matter when the story broke.
I’d be interested in a breakdown of which factor cost him the more support. The charges, or how he dropped the ball.
I swear, the electorate in this country makes me want to puke sometimes. I guess they're in "Thank you sir, may I have another?" mode.
Oh, and this also screams for repeal of the 19th Amendment.
This country eats the Palins and Cains; perhaps it deserves Barack Obama.
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!! I hate them with a passion!!
One thing that hasn’t changed and doesn’t appear will ever change is that we don’t really get to choose.
People candidates are going to be ignored or sandbagged before they are ever allowed to climb to the top.
Romney is next in line, they probably have an alternate in mind too. One of the reasons they were begging Christie was that they knew Romney wasn’t going to catch fire.
How they think Christie was qualified is amusing too.
Anyway, the writing is starting to be on the wall for Herman. They want him out and if he stays in things will get even worse for him. After awhile, even though people really like him, they will get tired of the turmoil.
This is why they keep it going. Already starting to happen.
Most of these people don’t even care anymore if what they say or who they drag out is totally false and phony. The elite R’s and D’s are going to circle the wagaons for the established picks.
For all of you happier than hell about this, don’t celebrate just yet. Your pick may be next.
