Dennis Miller Jumps Off the Cain Train (TRANSCRIPT from O'Reilly on Foxnews)
Fox news ^ | Nov. 16, 2011 | Dennis Miller and Bill O'Reilly

Posted on 11/17/2011 12:48:39 PM PST by Innovative

MILLER: What about my endorsements? Listen, you know why I'm off the Cain train, Billy.

O'REILLY: Why?

MILLER: He can't win. Listen, he's still a great guy, and this is a fluid situation for me. If he gives us the best chance to win tomorrow, I'm back on. But today, he can't win.

O'REILLY: I know, I know. I mean, his numbers are down. The Fox News poll just out today got him at 15 percent. And the people who have defected from Herman Cain have gone to Newt Gingrich. And I suspect, Miller, that you are one of those.

MILLER: Well, listen, I don't know where I'm quite going yet. I might stop at Newtville. I might go to Planet Ron Paul. I have a feeling, like everybody else, I might end up at Romney Acres eventually. But those are the three right now, I think, because of this. Romney makes it hard for them to hit. Newt hits back. And Ron Paul doesn't even know he's been hit.

O'REILLY: Yes, I don't know -- I don't see you in the Ron Paul camp because of the foreign affairs thing. I mean, he...

MILLER: I go -- I go anywhere that's going to beat Barack Obama.

Cain says the accusations against him are totally false. Why isn’t he suing the false accusers for defamation?

“I have a feeling, like everybody else, I might end up at Romney Acres eventually.”

Nuff said.

Miller was probably never REALLY for Cain anyway. His politics are more like Krauthammer’s and Fred barnes. Not really conservtive anyway.

And if a FOX NEWS POLL shows Cain falling, why THEN IT MUST BE TRUE!!!! (Sarcasm).

And why do you want to take Cain off message by demanding he involve himself in a legal suit now. There will be plenty of time for a slander suit after the primary.

"Hey Vote for ME! I am a proud Establishment Insider"!

I got off the Cain train because of the campaign he and his dumba** staff are running. They had a 10 day advance notice that th Sexaul Harrassment thing was coming and they handled it pathetically. Every time he’s asked a question about Foreign Policy, he says “I’ll ask my advisors and the people I appoint around me.” He goes to South Florida and gets asked a question about Cuban Immigrants and he says it was a “Gotcha question”. Come on Herman, you can’t ride on your charisma forever. Sooner or later you’ve gotta get your head out of you a**. And, firing Mark Block and that meat-head staff you have might not be a bad idea either.

I'm off the Cain train, Billy.
O'REILLY: Why?
MILLER: He can't win

--- I don't get it. Are you betting on a horse race, Dennis? Why wouldn't you decide who you want to be President and push and push and push, until he's over the top, or eliminated. THEN you look at your other choices.

Wrigley field would always be empty if that stinkin' attitude prevailed.

I am pro Cain ... but I wouldn’t take the “eventually” comment as meaning “now”...he may have been referring to the possibility that Romney gets the nomination and we once again get the choice between a crap crepe and a caca taco.

“I might go to Planet Ron Paul...”

I heard the atmosphere there is so rare that your head explodes.

Ok... I’ve encountered comments like yours in other places, so I need to ask some questions.

Did Cain know WHERE the allegations were going to come from? How could he “prepare” if he didn’t have specifics? What was he supposed to do? Say, “Hey...there’s gonna be these women coming out....” ? How would that look? Was he supposed to try to pay them off? How would THAT look? The problem with scurrilous allegations is that they are scurrilous.

I see Cain as a candidate that is fundamentally sound regarding the single biggest problem facing the nation ... and that’s the economy. I, unlike many, I guess...I BELIEVE that a good president CANNOT know everything and should surround himself/herself with the best possible people. In my opinion, Cain may be at a disadvantage campaigning because he is not a politician and may not have access to some of the relevant information that other candidates have access to.

We are allowing the media to lead everyone down a dangerous road. They tried to tell us and continue to try to tell us that Obama was/is a supergenious who was/is on top of absolutely everything...but we all know he’s just man. And he has some CRAPPY advisors.

But the media is making everyone expect that the GOP nominee must know everything right this second or he/she isn’t qualified.

I think we’re falling into that trap.

Agreed. He should have fired Block and hired John Bolton or some other foreign policy guy (to brief him about middle east etc)

I think Cain is smart and able to get up to date on foreign policy. He just decided not to do it and as a result, embarrassed himself and seriously damaged his credibility. I suspect Block is major factor in the disastrous decisions.

I think so, too. I see some befuddled Democrats because they don’t think any of the GOP candidates are in any way reasonable. The American people ... though ...I don’t think they really CARE about personal rumors anymore. Politics has been such a feces-fest for so long and (not that I think the Cain allegations are legit) ... they KNOW about the Kennedy’s and Clinton and they are looking for the best PRESIDENT for right now... no “saints” necessary.
