Skip to comments.Cain Gets Major Applause At Debate After Dismissing Harassment Claim
Posted on 11/09/2011 8:55:44 PM PST by Kartographer
CAIN: Yes. BARTIROMO: You know that shareholders are reluctant to hire a CEO where there are character issues. Why should the American people hire a president if they feel there are character issues?
CAIN: The American people deserve better than someone being tried in the court of public opinion based on unfounded accusations. That's...
And I value my character and my integrity more than anything else. And for every -- one person that comes forward with a false accusation, there are probably -- there are thousands who would say none of that sort of activity ever came from Herman Cain.
You're right. This country's looking for leadership. And this is why a lot of people, despite what has happened over the last nine days, are still very enthusiastic behind my candidacy. Over the last nine days...
Over the last nine days, the voters have voted with their dollars, and they are saying they don't care about the character assassination. They care about leadership and getting this economy growing and all of the other problems we face.

Great day for Cain.
Investigator: Herman Cain innocent of sexual advances
Frankly I don’t care and I bet alot of people don’t either. Run a microscope over my life and I would never run for office. Cain’s past is littered with examples that show when a business unit is hemmoraging cash, running out of credit and becoming burdensome, you put Cain in charge and he turns it around. So one afternoon he got a bit fresh with a woman. He didn’t rape her, he didn’t offer monetary reward for her complicity, he just tried to get some. It didn’t work. Boo Hoo. I am all about hirinig (electing) the right guy for the job. Cain is the right guy, this is FlAK dust thrown up by the MSM that was so effective at their job that 90% of Americans thought Bill Clinton’s illegal act was getting a blowjob. No, it was perjury and obstruction of justice in his pending rape case. They didn’t care about that, but a conservative rubbed a womans leg up to her happy area? That requires scrutiny....
That is moral integrity and strength.
Enough of this Jim Crow lynch mob AKA the Donkeycrat party.
>> “So one afternoon he got a bit fresh with a woman.” <<
There is no evidence that that even happened.
WOOOOHOOOOOOO GO CAIN!!!!!!!!
I’m really concerned with Iranian aggression and their nuclear weapons program.
I really would like to get a good idea how a President Cain would deal with Iran.
I hope to gain some meaningful insight into how he would deal with Iran by watching how he instructs his new lawyer to deal with these scumbags trying to smear him
Old commie ‘RAT trick. When all else fails, bring on the blonde white women to make accusations against “the black guy”. If this ‘RAT trick works, America has fallen down a lot further than I thought it had.
No need for profanity brother, I was pointing out that in the worst case, this doesn’t change my views at all. If he did, he did. If he didn’t he didn’t. Doesn’t change my mind at all. That was my one and only point.
Perry could very likely drop out before Iowa, sending the lions share of his 6-8% over to Cain which should be the difference in Florida and pad the margin of Herman's two key wins in IA/SC.
Cain was near perfect tonight!
Everyone who thinks this video clip, or even an accurate written report of it, will put on and MSM raise your hand.
I’ll gladly eat crow if I’m wrong.
Oh, and just so its on record, Cain may force me to change my tagline.
I had this question tonight: regarding Perry supporters switching to Cain - what effect do you think Cain’s placing blame for the circus on Perry’s campaign will have? Any grudges enough to not support Cain should Perry not continue at some point?
He sounded like Ronald Reagan when he said the third thing that was wrong with Dodd/Frank was Dodd and Frank. HA!
LOL! Good post.
Cain is getting better and better handling the oppositio......the media. :D
character is important.
cain was a new kid in town, and people began to learn
more about him and his past.
however, i dont think he did well in the presser from
arizona the other day.
ms. bialek probably sugar-coated her story, but i believe
essentially what she said has merits.
the fact the cain said that he didnt meet her in d.c. for
dinner, it is troubling because records can easily be digged
out, e.g. credit card transactions etc.
imo, this is a major error on cain’s part as if he was
playing pokers at the presser. im sure many cain
supporters would strongly disagree with me.
(i was pro cain until i saw how he handled the situation
when it started about 2 weeks ago. he is a goner.
gingrich has the momentum now.
...and it sailed thru the upgrights!
That Bartiromo broad is despicable. She needs to shut her surgically altered mouth.
i dont think so, it’s the exact opposite. i can judge
a character quite well. if we go by body languages,
when lawyer allred gave the intro, look at the video again,
bialek was more than ready to jump into starting her
statement. if a person lies, he/she would not do that.
it is similar to amanda knox’s body language in italian
courts, how passionate she was in trying to prove her
the opposite was true, i watched the previous debates
and cain was full of energy; at the presser, his energy
was low, you could detect the context of his voice
after the presser, i think john king interviewed a
cain’s friend on cnn, and he said his wife/family was
not even there at the presser. one could ponder why that is. contrast that to clinton+hillary together
trying their best to b.s. the people when they actually
knew bill did it, i.e. the 60 minutes interview in 1992(?)
Cain would deal with Iran better than teleprompter Zero is doing, and as good as any of the GOP contenders.
You have any better idea’s on how to deal with Iran?
And do not get your head up into you derriere worrying about Iran. Pakistan has 100 nukes already and Bin Laden was living there in relative comfort, a stone’s throw from their military academy. Wake up and smell the coffee.
I love you post! But enough about how my day usually goes!
I think he just mis-understood your post. Everybody just relax.
WONDERFUL DEBATE TONIGHT, save for the face time given to Romney.
Most Perry Supporters are looking for the most conservative man in the race.
I tend to think 60% of them will switch to Cain.
Everybody and his brother thinks they are great judges of character. That’s why we have a legal system. We really are not that good at it. Without hard evidence, a person in our system gets a presumption of innocence. You know about the high tech voice analysis that was done on Cain, right? Objective science says he spoke with the voice qualities of a man speaking the truth. Then there’s Coulter’s new piece, showing a clear path to Axelrod as the planner of the hit. This is real war. We have to make the other side work for everything they get. That means we don’t just hand them the ball if they come after us. We stand with our guy, we give him the blocking he needs, and we drag him over the goal line if we have to. This is for the money.
hi-tech has errors, sure it’s possible cain may have
passed the stress test, or falls within that 5% margin
of error. why not.
sure, bialek could have been used by others,
but her story has merits. it will come out more later.
and when that time comes, cain wont be able to
sustain that tsunami.
You really think Herman will get Rick Perry’s 6% when Perry drops out? I hope so. I could live with a Cain or a Gingrich Ticket. I still think whomever the nominee is, Marco Rubio needs to be the choice for VEEP. Herman or Newt could give the other one a Cabinet position.
“He sounded like Ronald Reagan when he said the third thing that was wrong with Dodd/Frank was Dodd and Frank. HA!”
Yeah, I loved that line. The best one of the nite.
Check out Ms. Bialek’s checkered past. BTW, the “shift” key on the keyboard is your friend.
You would have to suspend all manner of belief to even buy the set up of her story.
First she is working for a lobbying group based in DC but she works in the Chicago office. She works for the office for one year. She has maybe met Cain one time (according to her) at a group dinner.
She is living with her ‘Boy Friend’ A pediatrician who advises her to fly to DC and meet with Mr. Cain. The CEO of the firm. RIGHT! She is able to get ahold of Mr. Cain, I am sure her call would be sent right through by the secretary, All terminated employees are the first call that a CEO takes. She convinces him to meet her, for what reason. She says it is to ask for help with a job. He asks her halfway through dinner ‘why are you here’ (Her words again)
She claims her 'Boy Friend' gets her the room at he Hilton, but Cain upgrades her, HOW. The Hilton would not only not divulge her presence prior to her checking in, they would never tell him what room she was in much less ever allow for him to upgrade a guest of theirs. Just doesn't happen, it is totally against any policy they have ever had. ( I have over a million Hhonors points and have staid in hundreds of Hilton properties during the time period this was to occur. They never divulge info about room numbers and guest suites VS. rooms. NEVER!
She goes to dinner, ALONE, with Cain. Tarted up I am sure. She allows him to drive her away from the hotel where he has supposedly secured an upgraded SUITE in order to drive her to the street or lot outside the local office in order to ‘out the moves on her’ WHY? He has her in a suite. She is obviously;y as dumb as a post she flew 600 miles to talk t the head of a company that just fired her to have her help with a job.
She also has had TWO bankruptcies in ten years and is rumored to be in the process of another, She hasn't had a job in years, lives high on the hog, been involved in many legal fights over money and PATERNITY with more than one person, OVER THE SAME KID. That doesn't sound good.
Attending Physician: Who is the father for the birth certificate.
Buy-A-Lick: Could be one of at least two guys, let me get back to you after my attorney does a financial assessment on them.
As far as her statement was concerned. She related an unbelievable story in a halting manner after being coached by the biggest legal Hack in the country.
For the love of God, I thought Allred’s neck snapped when she heard that ambulance go by!
Total fraud. So is the other ‘aggrieved party’
Really, capitalization is your friend. Try this for body language...what the heck was she doing laughing and talking with the press about her new hairdo. Even her attorney told her to quit talking. Doesn’t show a lot of seriousness for something that she was so traumatized by that event that she remembers everything except the date, restaurant and other specific details (oh she did remember what she was wearing so that’s something).
A person that lies wouldn’t do that? What about that whole finger shaking “I did not have sex with that woman”. That was pretty bold. And why wouldn’t she want to get on with it? If she’s lying she may just want to get through the damn thing so she can get off the stage. There was nothing natural about that. It was like she was reading about something she’d never been a part of...way too much hesitation and an inability to say anything not written down.
I don’t have a clue what Amanda Knox has to do with this and frankly, I can’t even figure out what side you take on this is either. But I’d really like to hear the specific “context” of his voice (whatever that means) and expressions you’re talking about? When? During what part? What was he talking about when you noticed?
Well, Cain said previously, even before this that his wife isn’t going to be the typical campaign wife. She’s not as comfortable as professional political wives and prefers to support her husband in a more traditional way. Good for her. We aren’t electing a first lady, we’re electing a president. Oh, and using Clinton and Hillary for an example...Clinton was guilty (as are almost every guy who trots is wife in front of the camera when he has to admit to being a creep). So, he’s guilty and doesn’t have the support of his wife because she didn’t stand by his side like the wives of MEN WHO WERE GUILTY? That’s some pretty twisted logic there.
Please list the parts of her unsubstantiated story that you feel “has merits”.
I missed the debate; had to attend a Tea Party meeting in Weaverville, but I did catch some news when I got home.
The fact that the media slime was booed when they tried to pillory Mr. Cain with these unfounded accusations made me hopeful that the American public might be waking up to their underhanded smear tactics. I will wait and see though, the sheeple can fall back asleep very quickly.
For example, John Glenn, Marine Ace Pilot, Astronaut, and Democrat U.S. Senator (Whose leftist policies I hated as Senator BTW), never had his wife speak in public,. She has a severe stutter and is horribly embarrassed by public appearances.
It is a very recent, and mostly Democrat, phenomenon that a candidates wife makes many speeches during an election.
Giving him his presumption of innocence, he’ll handle the “tsunami” just fine. It’s his back he got to watch out for. Sheesh.
So; you believe some who looks like and acts like a minor league hooker with a rap sheet about these kinds of accusations, even with her lawyer standing right next to her.
I doubt that you were ever a Cain supporter or ever would be.
It is not often I have experience of hearing from some one who is obviously DUMBER THAN A BOX OF ROCKS; but I must say, your ability to interpret body language is only surpassed by your skills at reading tea leaves, or maybe chicken entrails.
At a chili dinner to meet Steve King the fellow for Rick Perry, the fellow for Mitt Romney, the fellow for Rick Santorum seemed to fail to pique any interest.
Steve King bought a rusted hulk of a D-7 in 1975 and towed it from Nebraska to begin his terracing business.
When he found 42 federal agencies between him and his work he tried to talk to the state senator but got the dead fish glaze-over.
When he tried to get a responsive candidate to run everyone said that would be you.
He went to the state senate and to the U.S. Congress in 2002.
He's sponsoring a bill to recognize the millions of victims of crimes committed by illegals.
He says we will have a window to rip out Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, and a host of regulations.
He explained in a seamless talk his belief the Founders were guided by Providence to create the America of freedom, natural law, free-market capitalism.
We came away buoyed up by a vision of an America rising.
When Alinsky wrote Reveille for Radicals he dedicated it to Lucifer that first among radicals who won for himself a kingdom.
The carping harpies and shrieking fairies of the current Obama Nation have sent out the David Axelrod order to the engine room:
More Bimbos! Throw more bimbos into the boilers!
Behold the Left of 1917 in Russia, 1949 in China, 1959 in Havana, 1979 in Tehran--
Warbucks Soros commands you turkeys to stay in your tents--
More bimbos are being ordered--
The dog's being prepared for wagging--
Listen for the war drums drumming:
President Gaga is up in his suite kissing the mirror.

With the condescending implication that 'the black guy' has 'urges' he can't possibly control.
That speaks volumes about the Liberals' stereotype of 'black guys'.
If a person lies...they might use a script (crib notes) to outling events which allegedly they recall from 15 years ago. If they are telling the truth, why the crib sheet?
L. Lin Wood has a real “go for the jugular” history and reputation. Ask all the media outlets and others that smeared Richard Jewell in the wake of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics park bombing, for one example.
