Fox News Poll: Americans Think Cain Accusers Are Shady
FOX ^ | 11/16/11 | FOX

Posted on 11/16/2011 4:43:18 PM PST by justsaynomore

A majority of American voters think the sexual harassment claims made against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain are motivated by something other than fairness.

A minority thinks the allegations are serious enough to disqualify him from the race. Cain has been battling claims that he sexually harassed four women more than a decade ago.

I hope he bounces back. I’m so sick of the MSM slime and manipulation. They need to lose a smear campaign Big Time, and get their noses rubbed in it. From what I have seen, the MSM and Obama fear Cain most of all. I’d add, and not w’out good reason.

SOMETHING DOES NOT COMPUTE!

How's about we apply a little logic and common sense to this issue?

From a fellow freeper (thanks):

A Summary Of Herman Cain’s BIO

Mathematician for the Navy, where he worked on missile ballistics (making him a rocket scientist); Computer systems analyst for Coca-Cola; VP of Corporate Data Systems and Services for Pillsbury; Business Manager for 400 Burger King restaurants He learned the business from the ground up to turn the poorest performers into three the best performers in three years); CEO and owner of Godfather’s Pizza; Chairman of the National Restaurant Association; Adviser to the Federal Reserve System. Chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank. Writer and public speaker. WSB-Atlanta Radio Host, Associate Minister

OK, here is what is suspect about these (what I believe has been "Orchestrated") attacks:

Cain has worked WITH, FOR, and SUPERVISED, "Hundreds of Thousands" of people, many of them females, OVER A 40 YEARS PERIOD.

Does ANYONE believe that he went along blissfully and minding his P's and Q's for 30 years and then becomes a "Sexual Predator" for a couple of years and then reverts back to Mr. Straight Arrow for the next (or last) 10 years?

From someone who has (and continues to be at a ripe ol' age of 68) a serial (albeit, harmless) "Flirter" (and DOM at heart, though more in thought than action, lol) I can't believe someone who is accused of this type of "Conduct" (If true) would not have manifested during other periods of emplyment (when he had as many such "opportunities" to be a "lecher" if he was so inclined?) and would ONLY have been evident for a short period of time and NOT an ongoing pattern throughout his lifetime, or at least for more than a couple of years???

NEXT: HOW is it that his ONLY "accusers" were ALL associated with/worked for, etc. the NRA?

"COINCEDENCE?" I'm not buying it!!!

Something's rotten in Denmark and the stench is overpowering!

Herman Cain Details Collective Bargain Position (press release)

Mr. Cain was consistent in his Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel editorial board meeting yesterday and has always supported Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s legislation to balance his state budget and give his state’s government the tools it needs during the ongoing economic crisis. In fact, Mr. Cain traveled to Madison earlier this year to voice his support for Governor Walker’s initiative to limit collective bargaining privileges in Wisconsin.

Contrary to what the editorial board members stated, federal employees can bargain collectively on some elements of their contracts. The editorial board members were wrong to correct Mr. Cain on this point. They are forbidden to go on strike. This was a provision within the legislation that allowed federal employees to form unions. We all remember President Ronald Reagan famously firing the air traffic controllers because they went on strike in violation of federal law. We need leadership like Reagan’s today in Washington – and this is why Mr. Cain is running for the office.

Most people don’t care. And if there was any truth to the allegations, the accusers could have come forward 15 years ago.

The liberal smear machine may have succeeded though in helping to knock Cain off his front-runner status. That is not to say Cain’s gaffes and missteps haven’t hurt him.

But the MSM has made sure he is no longer a threat to Obama. Mission accomplished.

These Shady Ladies' accusations might be taken a little more seriously if there weren't some tenuous connections with the Obama/Axlerod/Daley Chicago smear machine.

The David Axelrod/Chicago Connection to Cain's Accusers

-- By Ann Coulter

Herman Cain has spent his life living and working all over the country – Indiana, Georgia, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas, Washington, D.C. – but never in Chicago.

So it's curious that all the sexual harassment allegations against Cain emanate from Chicago: home of the Daley machine and Obama consigliere David Axelrod.

Suspicions had already fallen on Sheila O'Grady, who is close with David Axelrod and went straight from being former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley's chief of staff to president of the Illinois Restaurant Association (IRA), as being the person who dug up Herman Cain's personnel records from the National Restaurant Association (NRA).

The Daley-controlled IRA works hand-in-glove with the NRA. And strangely enough, Cain's short, three-year tenure at the NRA is evidently the only period in his decades-long career during which he's alleged to have been a sexual predator.

After O'Grady's name surfaced in connection with the miraculous appearance of Cain's personnel files from the NRA, she issued a Clintonesque denial of any involvement in producing them – by vigorously denying that she knew Cain when he was at the NRA. (Duh.)

And now, after a week of conservative eye-rolling over unspecified, anonymous accusations against Cain, we've suddenly got very specific sexual assault allegations from an all-new accuser out of ... Chicago.

Herman Cain has never lived in Chicago. But you know who has? David Axelrod! And guess who lived in Axelrod's very building? Right again: Cain's latest accuser, Sharon Bialek.

Bialek's accusations were certainly specific. But they also demonstrated why anonymous accusations are worthless.

Within 24 hours of Bialek's press conference, friends and acquaintances of hers stepped forward to say that she's a "gold-digger," that she was constantly in financial trouble – having filed for personal bankruptcy twice – and, of course, that she had lived in Axelrod's apartment building at 505 North Lake Shore Drive, where, she admits, she knew the man the New York Times calls Obama's "hired muscle."

Throw in some federal tax evasion, and she's Obama's next Cabinet pick.

The reason all this is relevant is that both Axelrod and Daley have a history of smearing political opponents by digging up claims of sexual misconduct against them.

Have yet to hear of any women with similar accusations from before and after his stint at the NRA. One of the many reasons his accusers seem shady.

Please, Gloria Alred is nothing more than a shill for the left. When they are done with Herman, well next will be Newt...and so on. Meanwhile Mittens has teflon on him.

I’m sorry did I miss something? I wasn’t aware Cain has bounced anywhere by up. He’s raking in dollars and the faux scandal lost its legs early on.

But hey, maybe you’re a lot smarter than me. What is the basis for implying that Cain must “bounce back” from something? Please be specific—if you can.

Agreed. Cain is exactly what we need from an economic perspective. But he’d also be the hardest one for Obama to beat, imho. Axelrod evidently agrees. That’s why all the smears originate in Chicago. Obama’s team is working overtime to rid the field of Cain. I don’t believe they will succeed.

Which state and city are you in? Here, north of Seattle, the Malls have the normal crowds. Busy on good weather weekends, pretty empty during week day afternoons. None of the restaurants have a waiting line to get a table. Sometimes I wonder how they manage to break even.

I'm down is San Diego.

Our malls look crowded but people are just walking around, I guess. They sure aren't buying.

We've had three fairly popular restaurants go under in short order. Yesterday, our closest Chevy's closed it's doors without warning. I understand the chain is bankrupt and one by one they will be closing.

We also lost a Chili's. That one has been empty for almost a year.

We have other anchor stores in our mall (Robinson's May) that got bought out and that huge store has been sitting empty for about 3 years.

It's depressing!

Your post says it in a nutshell. While the Dems are teaching generations of our kids to be brain-dead liberals, the Establishment GOP is getting rich on legal insider trading and every now and then pretending to be conservative. Getting a man like Cain in there is our best hope.
