DES MOINES, Iowa A gathering of religious conservatives in Iowa Saturday night turned into one of the most emotional moments of the 2012 primary season when two presidential candidates Herman Cain and Rick Santorum both fought back tears while telling personal stories about the most challenging moments in their lives.
Cain, whose wife, Gloria, was in the audience, spoke about being diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer in 2006, stopping several times during his re-telling of the story to compose himself.
I can do this, Cain said he told his wife moments after getting the cancer diagnosis from his doctor. She said we.
Fellow candidate Rick Perry, who was seated next to Cain at the forum, which is sponsored by the Christian conservative organization The Family Leader, reached over and touched Cain on the shoulder, consoling him.

Gotta like the guy. Looks like Mittens was AWOL at a social conservative forum.
ummm not hardly. But you keep dreaming there s40.
God-fearing, compassionate human beings on our side. Godless, heartless automaton in the White House. The choice is clear. But where was Mittens?
A pro-abort Mitt would not have had a good night so he ducked it.
No sense in criticizing Romney. Unlike the other candidates he had to be in New Hampshire...or to match socks...or the dog ate his schedule...or something...
Where can we find this debate for online viewing. I know the MSM won’t be covering it, and I would really love to see it, even if after the fact!
All he did was post an article. Is there anything wrong with it? There wasn’t even any commentary.
What’s that supposed to mean?

Her comment has absolutely nothing to do with this thread. She’s carried her rabid hatred for me from another thread into this thread.
She has stalked me before.
It looks like they were both likely wary of the Pastor Jeffress style questioning / accusations they would likely have received at the largely evangelical gathering. The forum is being held at a fundamentalist evangelical Megachurch.

I know she backed off once. She called me a liar and I challenged her to provide just one example of when I have lied. Her response was to tell other Perry supporters that she was officially ignoring me. It was a cowardly way to handle the challenge but it was all she had. Like I said, kooks will be kooks.
Thank you both for the link!
Thanks for posting.
This link should work for the full debate video...
