Oh horse crap. The country is in trouble by what is happening to Cain.

Please spare me. Newt or Perry or Mitt ain’t gonna save the US. People standing up will.

I prefer Bachmann, the one conservative who gets the Hunter treatment.

But I will stand up for Cain.

Reality check. the ‘shooting’ didn't just start. It's been some weeks now and this may be just one straw too many. The public rallied to his side. But can we afford to wait for any more shoes to drop. WE have a fight for survival on our hands. All focus and energy must be used for that.

There comes a time when the distraction of one man's personal problems threatens our fight against the very real enemy.

Did you read his lawyer's statement? It's tantamount to admission of the charge.

Cain needs to show he's big enough a man to put his personal ambitions - and ego - aside and go home to mend fences.

He can concentrate on clearing his name and live to fight another day.

If we lose this election - we won't live to fight another day - as far as free elections and the restoration of our freedoms go.

Miss Ginger’s Response:

Herman, Take Back Your Mink!

He bought me the fur mink five winters ago
And the gown the following fall
Then the necklace, the bag, the gloves, and the hat,
That was late ‘06 I recall.

Then last night in his apartment
He tried to remove them all
And I said as I ran down the hall:

Take back your mink
Take back your pearls
What made you think
That I was one of those girls?

Take back the gown
The gloves and the hat
I may be down
But I’m not flat as all that.

I thought that each expensive gift you’d arranged
Was a token of your esteem
But when I think of what you want in exchange
It all seems a horrible dream...

So take back your mink.
To from whence it came
And tell them to alter and rise it
For some other dame!

Take back your mink
Take back your pearls
What made you think
That I was one of those girls?

I’m screaming:
Take back the gown
The gloves and the hat
I may be down
But I’m not flat as all that.

I thought that each expensive gift you’d arranged
Was a token of your esteem
But when I think of what you want in exchange
It all seems a horrible dream

Take back your mink
Those old worn out pelts
And go shorten the sleeves
For somebody else!

Reality check. the ‘shooting’ didn't just start.

Reality check for you: The shooting will not stop with Cain.

Reality check for you: With Cain gone the next shoe to drop will be with your candidate. Will you let unsubstantiated charges bring down your guy/gal? ...or do you always surrender at the first hint of trouble?

Reality check for you: There is no proof (regardless of the strange statement from his lawyer - which seems to me to be a shot across the bow to the news media)

Reality check for you: The real enemies are those attacking this man's reputation, family, career and life. The will destroy the man to get their way. And your candidate will fare no better.

Don't you see - Every charge that has been thrown at Cain can be thrown at your candidate? (just change the names and places)

It is not in my character to throw someone under the bus just because it is politically expedient (based upon what I believe are lies). He can throw himself under the bus if the allegations are true.

The only way he loses my support is if he is PROVEN to be a liar. Otherwise this is all calumny.

Looks like Col. West started to feel some heat. He is backing down from his earlier statement - via twitter:

@AllenWest (3 Minutes ago)

Allen West

I am not telling Cain to step down. That's his decision. But lets stop talking about "alleged incidents" & start talking about real issues!

Congressman Allen West via Facebook (20 minutes ago)

The media is trying to put me against Herman Cain. I guess its good for them to see two black men against each other. The facts are I am not telling Cain to step down. That is his decision and his only. What I said is the media focus on these incidents and "alleged affairs" are a distraction, and we as a country need to move on from this subject and get the focus on what the GOP contenders can seriously do for this country.

I think Palladin was referring to their own meager intellectual equipment. I won’t even go into their lack of Biblical knowledge, which tells Christians to help their brother or sister in need. No, much easier to tar and feather someone before concrete proof has been provided.

Excellent summary.

The enemy is not RINO Republicans.

It is not even Obama or Democrat operatives.

It is the slimy, sleazy enemedia who think that they and they alone can choose the candidates.

Obama will eventually be replaced by another Soros stooge.

But this country will not recover until we put the enemedia out with the trash where they belong. They need to loose all credibility just as Josef Goebbels did. Understand they are the enemy and do not enable them by following their playbook.

climb on board and help the media with their goal - or do some independent research -

Can’t be bothered? Didn’t think so.

but here, I’ll give you a head start
