Herman Cain to announce "next steps" of campaign
CBSnews.com - Hotsheet Live ^ | 12-02-11 | CBS News

Posted on 12/02/2011 10:23:37 PM PST by BagCamAddict

Video of Cain at Campaign Stop in South Carolina on Friday, talking about tomorrow's announcement

"Tomorrow, in Atlanta, I will be making an announcement. But nobody's going to get me to make that prematurely. So tomorrow, we will be opening our headquarters in northwest Georgia, where we will also clarify exactly what the next steps are."

Hard to fathom Cain using the words "we will be opening our headquarters" if the announcement is going to be that he is dropping out.

I like the suggestion from this author:

If I were Cain, I would leak a story that I was quitting – to Politico (for fun); then go to the podium tomorrow with Gloria, have her hold my hand in the air, and have HER yell “The Cain train is still on the track!” It would stun the media, and re-energize his campaign. And most importantly, it would inoculate future conservatives against the mainstream media smear machine once and for all.

“The Cain train is still on the track!”

Bingo.

We need to pray for this man and his family.

Maybe, when he says he’s opening his headquarters, he means the front door of his house. :)

I like the suggestion from another FReeper... what a coup it would be if this whole thing is a setup to pull a gotcha on the media. What if Gloria White was in on the whole thing, and the Cain Campaign could announce “Ha ha!! That’s what you get for not doing your homework and for publishing stories based on NOTHING but one woman’s WORD!!”

I surely don’t think that is what is going on here, but that would be the biggest April Fool’s Joke in the HISTORY OF THE WORLD if it were true!

(No photos, no receipts, no cards, no NOTHING after a 13-year affair? C’mon!)

Have you seen the video of big mouth ginger white on MSDNC. She is starting to look real nervous, if Cain drops out she is going to get sued along with ABC and MSDNC. Thats how Wood operates. On another political case, He has a current lawsuit against Miami Herald and St. Petersburg for hold on, $500,000,000 in damages.

http://www.atlawblog.com/2010/09/nyt-lin-wood-represents-failed-senate-candidate-who-wants-to-sue-newspapers/

This latest video of White shows that she is clearly lying. I don’t want to post the link, too much skank from it.

That would be a good joke and it would be a lot of egg for the media to wear.

But I think that having his wife standing by his side, when he makes his announcement will take a lot of steam out of these accusations.

I think the media will back off these accusations, unless somebody comes forward with a dna sample, in the form of a baby.

If the media still continues to go along this line, I do expect little children being brought forward, with the claim they are Herman’s.

Of course all requests for DNA will be rejected by the accusers.

Ok, ok, here it is.
It is a different interview, White apologizes to Gloria Cain and the Cain children. She is obviously lying, big time lying.

What you are missing here is that it is his money and how does it differ from politicians in Washington giving away our money to buy votes, do they tell us they are giving out money way to buy votes? At least it was his money!

There is no doubt I am a cynic...but it could well be that Mr. Cain is buying a few days time to determine what impact all this is having on his campaign. “Opening his headquarters”, filing for the distant primary in a state and sending out a campaign donation solicition e-mail.

If he has any type of positive response I think he’ll stay in or “suspend” his campaign.

Negative response...he has already laid the ground work (wife, family) to gracefully bow out.

Signed,

Berdie, The Cynic

No accreditation necessary Cam- just remember when all seemed hopeless, I was there to cheer you up. -:)

If Mr. Cain stays in- (and I think he will, unless his big money people dry up)— he’ll be stronger than before.

I once gave my entire paycheck to somebody, because they needed it more than I did at the time.

I’m not married, but that’s beside the point.

Context matters, like how much and how often.

Gloria White’s lesbian lover said that Gloria didn’t mention Cain at all during that time period.

I watched Cain make that statement on the news earlier today, and I couldent se how that would make anybody think he was quitting, however, the commentator thought he was quitting, we will see tomorrow

I love all these “Christians” who ignore the plain message of Jesus concerning forgiveness.

These are your words

You are a friggin hypocrite, Newt is a skank when it comes to women, but yet, you whine about Cain giving someone money who makes false allegations about an affair.

Hellooo. He is a Baptist preacher you ever think that maybe the money he gave was not his but the Lords(TITHES).

Not saying it is or it isn't. Question then if it is the Lords money what does he supposed to do with it?

Deu 15:19
And the Levite, (because he hath no part nor inheritance with thee,) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hand which thou doest.

So then what is a Levite.

Numbers 18:6
And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from among the children of Israel: to you they are given as a gift for the LORD, to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.

So then it this was the Lords money he is doing Exactly what he supposed to do. Help the needy.

Berdie,

That’s not cynical- that’s what’s happening. When this story broke, he now understood full well that MSM/Daley Machine was going to constantly be after him- it wasn’t going to stop- ever.

So, he’s deciding whether he can devise a way to effectively counter them.

If he can’t, he has to quit. But, if he can, he takes on “Clintonian” proportions to the conservatives (not talking sex!).

I mean the Dems loved Clinton because he always spanked the Pubs...each and every time. They couldn’t beat him even when they had him cornered. Think of it- this guy launched missiles into the Middle East just to get Lewinski off the front page when she was testifyng before the Grand Jury.
He refused to lose.

If Cain comes out and says I am not going to be like all other Pubs who run like scared rabbits every time the Dem Machine tightens the screws-— he will be a hero to conservatives.

And finally, if he does, that’s why he deserves to be President. He may be lacking in many things— but this steel backbone would demonstrate exactly why he became as successful as he is-—

Now, all he has to do is stay in it. -:)

When I was a child, there was a family that fell on bad times.
My Father asked that the congregation help the family out.
He was mocked by the preacher in front of the congregation.

Well, he left that church and gave his tithe to that family, but he sure as heck discussed it and prayed over that decision with my Mother.

He remained a Christian man all his life, the experience never soured him on his faith.

And that family became lifelong friends.

He didn’t really say that- he said he was going to announce the “next steps” he was taking.

Unfortunately, what we don’t know or hear, is the insider scuttlebutt— and in reading the media, I just think all the professionals (not media, just pol insiders) have given up on him. He talks of it as 3 classes- media, political and people. He has he’s big with the people, but the media is causing a “cloud” with the insiders (money).

He may have hid it because he has helped out others and got burnt and Mrs. Cain did not want him to do it anymore.

I am quite familiar with this kind of problem from my better half being too generous.

Really good—Interesting, about a week ago a poll came out showing Newt taking the lead and Cain falling back— but among 18-29 yr old, Cain led them all 36%- the next guy was down in the single digits. Maybe youngsters are his group?
