Herman Cain Announcement LIVE THREAD (Video Feed Link) [Suspending!]
HermanCain.com ^ | 12-03-2011

Posted on 12/03/2011 8:18:19 AM PST by montag813

Herman Cain is expected to make a "major announcement" today, anytime between 11am and 1pm EST in Atlanta. The media is assuming he will quit the race. Politico is positively glowing with anticipation of this. Will he fold, or FIGHT? He is also opening a new Atlanta HQ. Twitter reports that people are jamming in early to show their support.

We simply don't know what will happen, or when it will happen. What are your thoughts? Do you think he should quit? Or do you think Cain should stay in the race and deny the State-Run Media yet another GOP scalp on a platter - for unproven allegations -while they allow a vile rapist like Clinton, or commie cokehead like Obama breeze through unscathed?

HERE IS THE LIVE VIDEO FEED LINK: http://hermancain.com/livestream

Yes! Sometimes when there’s smoke, it’s just a smudge pot.

Wake Up!! He’s been destroyed by his own actions!!

Agreed, he has not handled the bimbo erruptions very well, made a fool out of himself on the ubekistan comment and stumbled poorly on the Libya question, not good, not ready for prime time. Couple all of that with the fact that he had a "friendship" for 13 years with a woman, was helping her out financially for 13 years and never told his wife. If nothing was going on and it was all above board his wife should have known about it. Doesn't speak well of his character. Whether there was something going on or not, he humiliated her. If this was a dem - everyone would be screaming for him to drop out, they would be calling him a liar and a womanizer, the hypocrisy is stunning.

Exactly.

Reminds me of what the MSM said about Clintoon’s harem...drag a dollar bill through a trailer park and see what you get. The media destroyed those women. Not so with Hermain’s accusers.

I discount the first 8 bimbos and their stories. However, it appears there may be something to the 9th bimbo. I would love for Cain to stay in the race. However, that decision is being driven by his wife. If he wants out of the marriage—or will not support him in his pres. run—Cain cannot win.

I donated to the Cain campaign and wrote many words on his behalf. I don’t expect a return on the investment and don’t feel any angst for suporting him. However, I would hope Mr. Cain has the presense of mind to thank all of us out here who gave time, energy and treasure we expended in his name.

The above assumes he’s dropping out. If he does not throw in the towel ILL assume he is moving forward with his wife’s backing. He will need to reassure me on that point. If I’m satisfied, I will continue to send him money and support his candidacy in any other way I deem appropriate.

For me, what is important now more than Cain getting the nomination and being president is Cain taking on and defeating the liberal media that gave us Obama with tactics like this.

Cain could serve this country far better and far longer if he is able to somehow use this situation to drive a wooden stake through the heart of the media establishment which has sucked the life blood out of our political process.


Oh, please dear G-d, YES. Whatever you decide to do, Mr. Cain, please do this.

I agree and I look forward to hearing him today.

I hope that he goes toe to toe with the Chicago mob that seems to be behind all this.

All of these allegations occurred from the time period that he was involved with the Chicago based Restaurant Association...makes inquiring minds wonder.

And we have seen the result of”the Chicago Way”...it is currently living in our White House when not on vacation.

POLITICO type lib male with a Beltway Wonk type voice, very young, on C Span Radio right now talking with crap all over his face, sounds like he personally really really wants Cain to quit, but indications are Cain will not right now, and they have been blindsighted, and I believe they do not like it. The tone is very depressed, dejected, nervous sounding. Does not sound jubiliant at all. This Politico was and is REALLY out to get this guy. Wow. The lib was on a taped interview from earlier. Oh how I would love to see of all people, POLITICO humiliated over this.

Well, to date, Gov. Perry has not been inundated with the type of allegations made against Herman Cain. So yes, I still support him.

Actually no candidate has been treated the way Cain has. The MSM set out to do everything they could to try and destroy Herman Cain. It was a very coordinated attack. Romney, Gingrich, Perry, Bachmann, all have plenty of things the media could have went all out on, and yet the MSM chose to try and do everything possible to destroy Cain.

And yet they failed. Cain is still comfortably in the top three, and his only threat - Ron Paul, has settled in at fourth.

Even if you don't like Cain, you should be happy that the MSM's power has been eroded. You can credit the Tea Party movement, you can credit Conservatives sticking to their guns in the face of the MSM, but it's still a positive thing for all Conservatives.

Yep, and he seems to have accomplished all on his own what it took a barrage of vicious media smears/Chi Town political machine to do to Cain.

Thing is though, if the media had attempted similar tactics against Perry, I would have been here defending him....even though he is not my favorite.

I certainly would not be here cheering his demise.

I for one will withhold judgment until the truth comes out.

Like Obama's birth certificate? Don't hold your breath. I doubt we'll ever know the truth in our lifetimes. I use the strategy of thinking who benefits most from these tactics. I take a look at how Obama won his Senate seat, and draw my own conclusions. But if you always believe there's fire when you see smoke, go ahead.

Anyone, will the live stream work on an iPad?

Right now the live stream square says:


This channel is not live. Only live streams and mobile compatible video clips appear on mobile devices.


Does that mean it will work when Herman goes live? Or do I need a tv?

I loved Ann Coulter’s comment, “where there’s smoke, look for journalists furiously rubbing two sticks together.”

I have a rule. Believe NOTHING you HEAR; and only about half of what you SEE.

I’ve HEARD tons from the media about Mr. Cain; I’ve seen NOTHING.

Anyone who wants to help the blacks get off the DEMOCRAT PLANTATION is a terrible threat to the Democrats; what is suspect is THIS IS THEIR STANDARD M.O.

I don’t suppose you heard Rush the other day, but he played a clip from one of the big leftie journalists, Klein, I think, who said Cain was doing well “until WE started to attack him”. Those were his Exact Words.

Could it be any plainer? They are leaving Romney and Newt alone because they are literally salivating at what they can do to them in the general. Meanwhile *they*, not bimbos or the candidates themselves, but the MSM, are vilely and systematically destroying the biggest threats to Obama.

And far from trying to hide it, they’re bragging about it.

Instead of kicking a good man while he’s down. Maybe..just maybe so called tea party people and the infamous “conservatives” should do some soul searching of their own. Which one of you are going to stand up, try your hardest and get attacked like this? Palin and Cain tried..heck you fair weather so-called christians are as luke warm as you can be.

Exactly. These tactics serve another purpose for the enemy. They discourage good people from ever considering going into public service. Who in their right mind would want to be subjected to baseless accusations, merely for the purpose of destroying an opponent, truth be damned?

That’s why Romney in general relied upon his proxies (Cain and Bachmann) not only to split the conservative vote, but also to attack especially who they still see as their biggest ultimate competition—Perry.

I also find it curious that with all the females in the Restaurant/Hospitality business that the only ones the “Womanizer Cain” had affairs/dalliances with all have a shaky past , not one successful restaurant owner .....Also they are all WHITE,.. one more thing.. Cains radio show was a night time show, he didn't commute to Atlanta to do it but chose to broadcast for a studio near his home. One would think if you needed "unaccounted time" commuting in unpredictable Atlanta traffic, chose a short/no commute would be in your hand .. IMHO

Sorry, you can't win on this one: if the allegations are indeed false, then the obvious question is: "What is Cain doing associating with people like that?"

"Oh, he didn't know..." Well, in that case he lacks the fundamental judgment to be President IMHO.

You say you want a conservative, a christian, a business savvy guy, a smart guy and you let the stupid media and same old gray haired GOP rhinos make you a laughing stock. Rove actually chuckled about the Cain demise on Fox the other night. Come on...are ya all as dumb as Rove thinks you are? Yeah..I guess it’s either that or you don’t believe in the principles that you have claimed day in and day out on this wonderful sight. Herman Cain hasn’t changed! YOU have. You got jello-legged and Axelrod and Rove knew ya would..WHY? Because you fell for the same danged knee-jerk crapola and ended up with McCain LAST time. Instead of kicking a good man while he’s down.

Come to think of it..this country deserves just what it’s going to get. With obama..it will come fast..with newt and mitt..it will be a hair slower..but MUCH more painful. Why? Because Herman Cain did not change..YOU did.

Well said. The puppetmasters pull the strings. When are the puppets going to cut the strings and stand on their own?
