Herman Cain to meet with wife as Ginger White apologizes
LA Times ^ | 12/02/2011 | James Oliphant

Posted on 12/02/2011 8:52:20 AM PST by Responsibility2nd

Herman Cain has a critical summit meeting Friday with a house leader. His house.

Cain is decamping back to Georgia for a sit-down with wife Gloria over the subject of Ginger White, the Atlanta woman who claims she was Cain’s mistress for over a decade, and he said the two will discuss the future of his struggling presidential campaign.

Cain is slated to open his national campaign headquarters in Atlanta on Saturday and, at least as of now, is expected to go through with it. But the lease had better be month-to-month.

White, appearing on MSNBC Thursday night, apologized to Gloria Cain and Cain’s children. (Watch video below.)

"I am not a cold-hearted person. I am a mother of two kids. And of course my heart bleeds for this woman because I am a woman and being in a situation like this cannot be fun," she said. "And I am deeply, deeply sorry if I have caused any hurt to her and to his kids, to his family. That was not my intention. I never wanted to hurt anyone and I'm deeply sorry. I am very sorry.”

I pray for comfort and wisdom for Mrs. Cain and her family. They are carrying a heavy load right now.

And I pray that God’s will is done concerning Herman’s campaign.

Because Ginger’s so hot, you might be tempted to start “counselling” her, just like the preacher man was doing.

Maybe this is all a misunderstanding. Can’t you see:

Herman Cain as George Bailey
Ginger White as Violet Beck

Right as if telling the world you had an affair with someone’s husband isn’t going to have any impact on his family - what cr@p. She should tell the truth herself and admit she got money for this, I’d bet.

Of course, Ms White...who could have expected the wife of the guy you accused of a 13-year affair to be harmed or upset...? (SARC).

What a bunch of horse-shit. This is like a rapist apologizing for the stains he left on the victim’s clothes. Give me a freaking brake, woman...not everyone in the world is as stupid as you!

Folks,

Let’s get real, even if his wife forgives him and encourages him to continue his campaign, Herman Cain isn;t going to get the nomination.

That’s just the reality.

Sorry, Ginger. This rings extremely hollow.

If your claim is true, you had a long term affair with someone you knew was married. You then went public about the affair unnecessarily (except for personal gain). How can you possibly expect us to believe you "didn't want to hurt anyone"?

My wife would not make an appointment to see me on Friday.

She would have me by both ears looking into my eyes on Wednesday evening. I would get away with “nothing”

This is fishy to me, A long coming meeting, for days now, between a husband and a wife

White is one sick woman. However, I see more and more of them every day. They have NO SHAME...they don’t even know what the word means. All they care about is ME, ME, ME! And they’ll do ANYTHING for a buck.

She says she isn’t cold-hearted...the proof she gives for this is she the “mother” 2 kids. Well, I’ve got news for White...you don’t need a heart to make baby.

The only non-politician running and this crap matters so much?

The nation is fading fast. Logically this crap isn’t even relevant if someone is capable of leading this nation out of the Obama-hell it is in. Character matters I know but I have such serious concerns for the future of this nation that we can’t let the MSM pick our candidate again.

Newt cheated and he is the front runner, so what does tha tsay?

At this point, I agree with your assessment.

The only route to the nomination for Cain goes through P.I.s finding proof positive that one or more of the accusations is flat false (meaning in the case of the settled sexual harassment claims that the "harassment" was something only shrill feminist harpies would regard as harassment) and finding a money trail that implicates the campaign of an opponent or a well-healed supporter of an opponent (whether Obama or another GOP contender).

Were that to happen, Cain would be back, probably with better numbers than before.

The trouble is, given the international situation (the Euro-crisis, Syria, Iran, the Islamist winter that's coming around after the Arab spring), however much we like him on domestic issues, it's not clear to me that Cain should get the nomination. Quite frankly his failure in having formulated foreign policy positions before the campaign or to be quick study on foreign policy once it became clear it was his weak suit during the campaign, hurt him more in my estimation than any of the accusations regarding his relations with women would, even were they proven beyond a shadow of a doubt before a jury of his peers.

Come out and admit an affair and then publically “apologize” to the wife and kids. How scummy and evil...

This woman deserves anything that comes to her.

re: LIAR.

I listened to this woman on a morning radio show this week. In the 4-5 minutes I was tuned in, she said "I'm telling the truth, here" (or some variant) 3 times.

My experience? Honest people don't need to tell you repeatedly that they're being honest.

thanks,paterfamilias, for the graphic.

What rings the BS meter is the fake apology.

Think of it—even if Herman Cain had an affair with her, whenever, he helped her over a long period of time. If she didn’t have sex with him, he did it out of kindness—so far that’s the narrative we have from him.

So, she says the reason she went public was “to get ahead of the story”. What story? Oh, the one her “friend” went with to various media outlets about her and Cain.

Then she said, and this is the kicker, she was concerned about how he treated the other two accusers.

So, she threw Cain under the bus in favor of two bimbos she never met and who never gave her a dime or helped her in her entire life.All hail the Sisterhood!

And pray tell, what was she worried about—ruining her sterling reputation? You know, the bankruptcy, the stalking charge, the lost libel case, the unpaid bills?

This woman is a train wreck.

Too bad she is helping to take out Cain.

Where Cain went wrong was in not coming clean about this first, especially after surviving last week. Why he ever thought this would not come out in some way is the triumph of false hope over experience.

RE: Could you please explain to me Clinton, Gingrich, the Kennedy family, etc.?

Clinton and Kennedy are DEMOCRATS. The Dems are more prone to overlook sexual indiscretions and hypocrisy.

Newt’s baggage has been known for over 10 years. He has owned up to it and (assuming there are no more sexual/marital/adulterous skeletons in his closet), people tend to say to themselves -— “Hey, you can’t continue to revisit what has been known for over a decade anymore”. Plus, Newt never presented himself as a religious, gospel singing, elder of a church, sort of fellow.

Plus, Newt OWNED UP to his infidelity and seems to have presented himself as a serious Catholic now. People tend to be forgiving of this sort of personal problem.

Also, Newt (rightly or wrongly) comes up as the most knowledgeable person in the campaign.

Herman’s problems on the other is more recent. We can overlook the harrasment accusations against him, but this most recent one is particularly troubling. Social conservatives see him as an upstanding religious, church goer who would never cheat on his wife. This, plus the fact that many are unsure and not confident about his ability to grasp the issues conforting America overseas (if you think Perry’s 50 second brain freeze was painful, you should see the way Cain handles the Libyan question), caused his campaign to implode.

Even if his supporters insist that He can surround himself with the best Foreign Policy team, many are not comfortable with his inexperience regarding this matter.

That’s just the reality we have to face.
