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
No, he's been destroyed by the Chicago Machine. And if you think your preferred candidate's immune, think again.
I have been, since the start, and continue to be to this day, puzzled as to why anyone would see Herman Cain as a potential President. After screaming at the top of my lungs in 2007 and 2008 to the four winds that Barry Barack Soetoro was the LEAST qualified person EVER to be ELECTED (lesser qualified have run!) it seems odd that Conservatives(??) and Freepers have knowingly backed a person with 'perhaps' even less qualifications.
I have no animus with Cain. Everyone should be able to run, and seeing a NON-politician ascend the runway is heartening. But I fail to see the measure of GRAVITAS required to lead America as President in this man.
These days one tends to focus so much on the purposeful destruction of our economy that we forget a leader must have a world view and some world expertise. You can see what the lack of such ability and vision has done to us as a nation under a two-bit Chicago street thug and bagman for the Daley machine.
Who has gravitas? I don't believe Bachmann, Perry, Cain, Huntsman, or Santorum have it. Paul may have an once or two. Mittens has a teaspoon or two. And Newty probably has a half-cup. I don't even find Palin to have the requisite amount although I love her combativeness in the political arena.
Out of all the people in this country the ONLY choices we can offer up are Obama, Biden, Gingrich, Romney, Paul, Bachmann, Perry, Cain, Santorum and Huntsman. What a sad statement for America.
I find no choice! And so once again we Conservatives, a minority to be sure, find ourselves stuck with the lesser evil. Would any of OUR candidates be better than the two Communists currently ensconced at 1600? Yes. But once again we will find ourselves with Bob Dole, Bush 1 and Bush 2 and having to go along with it because,...
...ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN 4 MORE YEARS OF OBAMA. So get prepared to 'settle'. Every election we swear we won't vote for a RINO but every year the option of allowing a DemonRat to be elected overwhelms us.
But Cain? No. And I simply can't understand what you guys see or have seen in him that you would want to elevate this guy to President. As for me, there is NO choice. So I sit here feeling empty and frozen. A sad commentary.
I would post this whole thing, because it is FUNNY, but people won’t read it all, and they’ll think it’s serious. So I’ll just post the link:
Cain’s farewell message... leaked:
Dare to dream ... drives the media insane!
His Live Stream page certainly doesn’t give the appearance that Cain will be quitting...it’s a positive, uplifting cycling of his speeches, family, etc.
Sadly, if this be the case, it will be because of DEFAMATION of character, which from the Christian perspective is a MAJOR SIN.
Equally sickening to me is the delight squealed by many here as they fall. I noticed a sharp increase in headlines highllighting Newt's issues in yesterday's FR activity. They have already abandoned Cain and obviously Newt is next.
..till I see bodies, blood, or video tapes—we are still standing with Herman Cain...
This isn’t even about whether he can win the nomination or not...it’s MUCH bigger. This is about right and wrong, truth and lies, and whether or not we are going to let the journalistas and their overlords in the DNC rape the American Way and our electoral process. Damn the torpedoes, Mr. Cain, full spped ahead! Don’t let the bastards win this...

Were you expecting somber music over a montage of black & white photos?
ROFL if So. He Played the MSM like a fiddle about time someone did.
All of Interested America will be watching the Rep, Ind, & yes even the Dems.
Sacajaweau, I have seen you post blatant lies about Herman Cain. It is people like you who make me lose hope for our country.
Right on, WalterSkinner! I say he’s staying in!
No skanks without proof need apply and GTH media.
Personally, I think the missive ‘leaked’ in your link is childish, at best. My advice to others is “don’t bother.”
He’s more qualified than Obama for the simple reason that he’s done what Obama has never done.
Cain has actually held a job.
It really doesn’t matter if he decides to stay in, suspends or quits. His campaign is headed for the low single digits and is essentially over.
His ego may not allow him to quit, however, the TV ops, secret service protection and the adoration of rapidly declining supporters.
He seemed very clear about it on Hannity last week.
He said it is first of all about his family. That it is taking a toll on the family and that he will make his decision based on that.
Everything else, the good vs bad thing, he says he is working on.
But of course! For some of Obama's useful idiots, this is nothing but a big Reality TV show. They treat the Republican primary like a bread-and-circus distraction. Meanwhile, the middle east is blowing up, Europe's economy is in meltdown, China is growing in strength, and we make fun of our candidates, each of whom is 1,000% better than the current occupant of the White House.
So what part of “it is FUNNY, but people won’t read it all, and they’ll think it’s serious” did you think meant it was going to be serious?
Sorry you can’t see humor when it’s written.
You are exactly right!
Some Freepers are happy that Cain's out because their candidate can now advance.
These foolish Freepers how no idea the evil that we are up against. Mitt for sure will not turn our Republic towards Liberty. Mitt will be a placeholder until the next Marxist takes power.
Newt has a character flaw that will not allow him to be bold and turn us towards limited government.
I have follow Newt for decades -- he will surely disappoint Conservatives. Newt's inner arrogance causes him to to truly believe if he had the power of State, he could bend it to do "the right thing."
Newt like other Statists cannot understand by just removing the State from most aspects of our lives, then society will become prosperous more civil. (He obvious has no understanding of Milton Friedman, Schumpeter, Adam Smith, Mises, Hayek, etc.)
P.S. I ask all Freepers to listen to Newt -- all his solutions require State action (smarter govt, etc), not the removal of the State.
You sir, are horriffically misinformed. LESS qualified? You bought into the racist leftist spew about ‘that pizza guy’...check out his resume and you will be amazed. If not, then you have other reasons that you don’t like him and are just propagandizing. Either way you are entitled to your opinion, but please, at least be intellectually honest in your arguments. Mr. Cain is without question one of the most qualified candidates in recent history.
Exactly...this is what EVERY Repub candidate should repeat non-stop...especially when the MSM attempts to derail.
I still don't understand what's not to like about Bachmann.
Cain is strong and deep in my heart I don’t see him letting the scum, worthless pigs at Politico win this disgusting smear campaign they engineered. Why would he open new HQ only to leave the race? I hope he stays in - I will support him if he does.
Remember: where there is SMOKE there just be SMOULDERING LIBERAL RESENTMENT OF CONSERVATIVE WOMAN AND MINORITIES #tcot @TheHermanCain
If @TheHermanCain were to drop out of the race, it would be a win for liberal leftist media and loss for the country #standwithcain
Great story of encouragement from a former @TheHermanCain employee. http://www.twitlonger.com/show/egld8f #Cain2012
Herm is not my candidate, but I would vote for him to stick it to them. The journolisters can kiss my grits!
Who chose the music for Cain’s rally? Hysterically ironic!
Currently playing- Hey Soul Sister.....
“Your lipstick stains on the front lobe of my left side brains
I knew I wouldn’t forget you, and so I went and let you blow my mind
Your sweet moon beam, the smell of you in every single dream I dream
I knew when we collided, you’re the one I have decided who’s one of my kind
Just in time, I’m so glad you have a one-track mind like me
You gave my life direction, a game show love connection we can’t deny
I’m so obsessed, my heart is bound to beat right out my untrimmed chest
I believe in you, like a virgin, you’re Madonna, and I’m always gonna wanna blow your mind
The way you can cut a rug, watching you’s the only drug I need
You’re so gangsta, I’m so thug, you’re the only one I’m dreaming of
You see, I can be myself now finally, in fact there’s nothing I can’t be
I want the world to see you be with me
Don’t want to miss a single thing you do.....tonight”
I guess if it were Newt Gingrich I’d go with the equivicate. Most folks would understand that decision.
GO HERMAN - DON’T GO AWAY!
I like what you said!
Who would have been your choices to run?
My candidate didn't run, but you already dismissed her in your statement.
I also like VA's governor, but he didn't run either.
Looks like him, doesn't he?
May God help Mr. Cain, his family, and be with him Lord and be with America Lord, for America and all Americans need you to be with us. Grant America and all Americans truth and justice, Lord. In Jesus name ... Amen ... Amen.
Where are you hearing the music?
I’m watching the live stream here:
Do you have a different link?
Today is going to be interesting.
You stand with Herman Cain, or you stand with the Obama/Axelrod initiated smear machine out of the White House and Chicago which was amplified by the MSM and then megaphoned by the RINO elite talking heads in the media as well. Once things got even worse for Cain, they (RINOs) committed sins of silence and looked the other way, as a Republican was the target of character asssassination. I think this issue is not going away today so easily, so I believe a lot of Freepers are going to have to take a principled stand. Either for the Obama/MSM attacks on Herman Cain, or solidly opposed to such attacks. They could even oppose the attacks while supporting another candidate. That works, too.
This is a man who fought and beat stage four cancer and sees that as meaning that it was for a reason, and that there is a plan for his life
He may not ultimately win the nomination but I can’t see that the MSM onslaught of lies and innuendos will force him to leave the race today.
He’s survived worse.
1. Lack of Executive experience. 2. A tendency to petty nastiness with opponents, Perry and Pawlenty, for example, grossly exaggerating their faults, ---not a person who can stay above thecheap political tricks (which is why she dropped in the first place).
You may have a point. Like the rest of us here, I do not know if the allegations are true or false. However, our commitment must be to our values first - including "family" values - and to any particular candidate second. No candidate deserves blind, unquestioning allegiance.
Yet your candidate is worse off and YOU still enthusiastically support him.
