Tea party leader calls for Cain to drop out
The Daily Caller ^ | 10/10/2011 | CJ Ciaramella

Posted on 11/10/2011 6:20:11 AM PST by martosko

The leader of a tea party group is calling for scandal-embroiled GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain to drop out of the race.

Judson Phillips, the founding leader of Tea Party Nation, said Cain’s flailing response to sexual harassment allegations brought forward by several women was simply unacceptable.

“Herman Cain has got to go,” Judson said in an email to Tea Party Nation members. “I do not believe Cain’s accusers. There are too many questions about them. The allegations are not why Cain should leave. The campaign’s response is why he should now withdraw.”

Cain’s flailing response to sexual harassment allegations

As there are questions about the accusers, this is the other "narrative" and cliche that swells in the media are promoting. The "response" was somehow poor.

Exactly how DOES one respond to a planned and organized media ambush?

I hate it when people try to speak for the Tea Party.

Even when I agree with them.

The Tea Party exists in the mind of every member,not as a group some person stole the name of and ran with.

If he wants to speak for a Tea Party let him start one. Let him register and start a real party, then we can elect someone to speak for us, not some person who appointed himself as our voice./

“I do not believe Cain’s accusers. There are too many questions about them. The allegations are not why Cain should leave. The campaign’s response is why he should now withdraw.”

That wins the stupid statement of the week.

I find it interesting that everyone is soooo happy that Cain is running against the media. It’s been done before. GHW Bush even had a bumper sticker that read “It’s the media stupid”, and we got Bubba Clinton.

The media is NOT the issue. The economy IS the issue.

Let’s go all Occupy Atlanta on Judson:

Speaker: “We are running a grassroots campaign...”

Electorate: “We are running a grassroots campaign...”

Speaker: “...where no single *unelected* weasel...”

Electorate: “...where no single *unelected* weasel...”

Speaker: “...like Judson Phillips...”

Electorate: “...like Judson Phillips...”

Speaker: “...is more important than the electorate...”

Electorate: “...is more important than the electorate...”

Speaker: “...and gets to choose our candidates for us.”

Electorate: “...suck it, Judson.”

Judson apparently has learned well from other faux conservatives such as Kathleen Parker - the best way to get face time in the MSM is to set up the perception that you are a conservative and then make utterances that agree with the liberal mindset.

In other words, become a useful idiot.

Judson has his own skeletons, and nasty behavior:

Judson Phillips is a controversial attorney who organized (and whose family profits from) the for-profit corporation Tea Party Nation, which organized the first national Tea Party convention in February 2010. In the decade prior to this money-making enterprise, Phillips had filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 of the federal code and had no less than three liens against him (Phillips claims the liens are now paid off).

1. Blames Liberals for Giffords Shooting

2. Calls Wisconsin Citizens Protesting Walker Nazis

3. Thinks Only Property Owners Should Be Able to Vote

4. Urged Religious Discrimination in Voting

I do on occasion. Honestly lately it is to hear his latest rant about Cain.

I confess that the first time my ears perked up about him was when he started talking about the possiblility that Bigfoot may be real.

He is responding the way the chicago machine hoped Cain would respond. He is showing a strong lack of courage.

Or he’s a Perry or Romney fan.

I’m on the Newt express but I’ve had enough of the media and the DNC just destroying people based on trumped up charges.

Someone has to take a stand. Palin backed down. I hope Cain stands up to them. GO HERMAN !

Funny...it thought it sounded a bit Medved-ish, too.

I like Michael Medved...but on a few issues his snotty Yaley side comes out.

Reread your own books Mike. Sometimes you are insufferable.

Oh, and Judson? Who the efff cares what you think. I consider myself part of the “tea party movement” and you sure hold no sway over me.

Mr. Cain—keep on going. I don't know who I will vote for in the primary, but Cain continues to fight the good fight, and I don't want him forced out by racists or fake victims of sexual harassment.
