Posted on 12/01/2011 7:26:01 PM PST by Halfmanhalfamazing
ATLANTA - Tea Party activists have been among the strongest supporters of Herman Cain, but a co-founder of the Atlanta Tea Party said she's changed her mind about a candidate she had defended.
"I think he should withdraw from the race at this point but that decision is for Herman and his family to make," said Atlanta Tea Party leader Debbie Dooley.
Dooley said she was troubled by Cain's denials following the FOX 5 I-Team report on Ginger White and her story of 13-year-long affair with Cain. White pointed to phone records showing repeated calls and text messages between the two.
"A reasonable person would assume that he has not been exactly forthright and completely honest about his relationship with her," said Dooley.

At this point, what would really make me happy is to see Santorum start rising in the polls. Or a rebirth of Bachmann's campaign.
I'm 100% committed to anybody but Romney.(and Huntsman - the media love him too much. It's creepy)
Sure, I'd take Perry or Gingrich over Obama, but I'm not exactly enthusiastic about it.
Debbie, Debbie, Debbie.....
You’re allowing yourself to be massaged by your enemy—the media.
If Cain drops out then moving on down the list is Bachman..... No More Rinos!
This is coming from an Atlanta Tea Party?
I would not count Cain out just yet.
Yipe! and she sits on the Intelligence committee?
If Debbie waited a little longer, she could have learned the vast majority of those texts were FROM the lying woman trying to shake down Cain for money. But instead Debbie buys the enemy’s spin without waiting for facts and then piles on and gives them front page headlines.
Some Tea Party leader.
Debbie Dooley has NEVER been a Cain supporter. Do not buy this garbage.
Support around here is still strong for Cain.
He is not defeated yet, and saying so over and over will not make it so.
I bet Debbie winds up endorsing Newt.
His lying and affairs won’t bother her, nor will his numerous anti-Tea Party poisitions
Once again the Left have beaten us.
Don’t worry, if we allowed them to destroy Cain, we’ll also follow suit when they go after the next front runner, and the one after that.
We are so screwed.
You two have some good info..............

That could be useful information, justsaynomore. Could you give me a link?

So who voted this dipwad turd a leader of anything? Crawl back into mommy’s basement, Debbie, and find your dolly a nice cup of make-believe tea.
You know, Cain was probably one of the most exciting candidates in my memory. Last time I was for Tancredo or Fred Thompson, but neither of them made it through, and I certainly wasn’t excited over the rest of the field.
Cain really has “bold” ideas here with the 999 plan, and it was the primary reason I got on the Cain Train. However, if Cain drops out and the media and the left wins this battle... I think I’ll sit it out this election entirely. I don’t really like any of the candidates, and each have their own problems. Bachmann would be good if she wasn’t constantly scratching out the eyes of her opponents. Santorum was simplistic in his analysis of 999, when in reality the sales tax would be a REPLACEMENT tax, per the logic of the fair tax. Romney and Newt is a no go. Ron Paul is good, but is crazy on foreign policy. Gary Johnson... I have no idea what he even stands for except for being somewhat effiminate in the same way Ron Paul is.
Under ordinary circumstances I’d be able to hold my nose and support one... But, to see Cain get taken out like this... It just doesn’t seem like politics really even matters anymore. We didn’t even get to vote for this guy in the primaries to give our own final opinion. Instead, it was decided for us, and the entire GOP basically turned their backs on this guy.
My conclusion is to simply turn off the news. Stay off the radio. Forget politics altogether. It’s all futile. Next cycle around we’ll still be dealing with the same problems, seeing the same tabloid media going after the same gaffes, seeing the same conservatives giving the same lackluster solutions, seeing the same war on Christmas, seeing the same ACLU cases, seeing the same news articles and the same battles... over and over and over again.

For what I know about this at this point:
1. The phone messages. Mostly her calling him. the times he called her apparently it is him calling her back.
2. Still doesn’t change the fact it is very weird to help out a non-family grown female with money, and not tell your wife about it.
I love Herman Cain and would vote for him in a heartbeat. But Herman has clearly shown he doesn’t have the political saavy to go up against Obama’s Alinsky machine. The Regime would shred him to pieces in the general election.
