George Will Calls Herman Cain 'Entrepreneurial Charlatan' Who Used Campaign 'As A Book Tour'
Mediaite ^ | December 4, 2011 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 12/04/2011 2:46:25 PM PST by EveningStar

Now that Herman Cain is out of the Republican presidential race, we have officially kicked off the phase where everyone reflects on the ups and downs of his campaign. And on This Week today, George Will wasted no time in calling the ex-candidate "disrespectful" and a "charlatan" for using his candidacy to promote his book and not be a serious candidate bringing ideas to the table like everyone else.

If you can watch and listen to Christiane Amanpour, Arianna Huffington, and Donna Brazile without hurling (I can't), there's a video with the article.

And here's a longer video.

George knows that the threat of Cain being on the Presidential ticket was the ONLY thing that was keeping the Democrat establishment from making moves to dump Obama now.

That's one of the stupider reasons to support Romney, but I suppose that's the one George is using at the moment.

At this point in time, I don’t see how I am going to be able to “undisgust” myself with conservatives, generally speaking, BECAUSE THEY KEEP ON ****ING DISGUSTING ME!

I suppose I can say -Thank you, Mr. Cain, for opening my eyes, no longer will I be fooled.-

Will is an establishment, elitist, arrogant arse portal. He has no clue about life outside his little media bubble. He can join Tokyo Rove in taking a long walk off a short dock.

George Will has merely proven that he cannot tell the difference between a charlatan and a true American hero!
--a man who has prevailed over poverty, cancer, the corporate world, and RACISM and remained optimistic!

--a man who has succeeded brilliantly and returned to tell how everyone in the world can do it too!

--a man who is the embodiment of The American Dream: liberty, justice, and prosperity for all the people of the world!

Herman Cain is a man who towers over the likes of George Will--and always will!

In the Name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, I ask for these murmurers and hateful men and women who are gloating over Cain’s suspension of his campaign to experience the wrath of God. Deliver his family, Lord, from these people, and spare us their hateful spew. May their electrical connections falter, their prepared remarks sheets disappear, their makeup run, their hairpieces fall off, and their teeth show up with bits of food between them. May we see the demons in their countenances and their soulless eyes show the redness of their foulness. May their stupidity overshadow their intelligence and their memories fail them at inopportune moments. May THEY experience now what they heap on Cain, conservatives and Godly people.

Amen.

Wait until Cain runs for VP.

Newt bought Cain out - Cain will endorse him soon.

When Newt wins Super Tuesday, guess who he’ll announce as his VP?

Herman Cain. And all Cain has to do in the VP debates is mention Biden’s “stellar” role in getting the stimulus to work and iterate his own skill at saving bankrupt institutions.

Check, MATE!

Come on now, at least try to be serious. Cain just quit the race because he couldn't defend himself over affair allegations, there is absolutely no chance whatsoever he is going to be anyone's VP. None, zilch, zippo. Once Cain endorses someone, he will ride off into his new career as a somewhat higher profile political commentator.

I'm not disgusted with Conservatives, you know, the kind of people who believe in "innocent until proven guilty" and won't just jump on the trash whoever bandwagon over some disfunctional floozies unevidenced claims and MSM smears.

I am, however disgusted with the Republican Party.

It's time folks, time for a real third party. No matter which of the current still standing establishment Republicans gets in, they aren't going to overturn the Obamites' damage.

Frankly, that doesn't inspire me to vote, and unless they are booted in the primaries (I'll vote in them fwiw), or don't get the nomination, I just might go fishing.

Well, Joe, I use the terms conservatives and republicans interchangabley, and I know I shouldn’t.

However, the people to whom I am referring are those folks who left Herman Cain to stand by himself to be destroyed by our enemies, because they didn’t have the balls to stand with him.

They know who they are, and I am DISGUSTED with them. I mean, I have absolutely had it with chicken sh!ts like this.

I trip out when I see threads about so who will Herman Cain supporters give their support to? Try ****ing no one. You folks that got played for suckers deserve whatever the Hell you get.

All Herman did was try to help this country, and all he got for it was spit in his face and a knife in his back.

Disgusting.

Herman Cain was a nice guy. Maybe a bit too nice. Herman Cain gets called a skirt chaser? I think it’s more like a few troubled women were chasing his handsome pants, were rebuffed (even if politely), and the proverbial fury that hell hath not like a woman scorned kicked in. And they expected his wife to have been told... get real! If you’re a loving hubby are you going to tell your wife that unstable women are chasing your pants? And give her all kinds of anxiety and jealousy attacks? No, you’re going to refuse the women’s advances AND keep it quiet to the wife unless it gets so ridiculous that they begin involving her too.

Joe, I really hope when it comes time that there will be someone I can vote for.

I will say at this point that I can push the button for bachmann and santorum. I do not believe they engaged in any of this nonsense, they kept their noses clean. I’m not going to hold them directly accountable for not standing up for Herman, because, frankly, that was our job. Hopefully either one of these two candidates can gain traction and soon.

But there is no way, no way on this earth or in heaven, that I am going to follow the despicable group of lemmings hypocrites to Newt the adulterer. SCREW THAT!

And that was also the way of the second test.

I don’t think we’re going to get a third, nor do we deserve a third, and I have no expectation whatsoever that it would be passed.

I have said before, that, in nature, man’s only natural defense was his intelligence. We have lost that. We are utterly defenseless, and I do believe that we are damned.

It’s not new news. He spoke about it a few weeks ago and it seems that the Will’s are friends with Romney.

http://news.yahoo.com/george-addresses-wife-ties-perry-campaign-165909121.html

McConnell also mentioned that several in the race weren’t seriously aiming to win but to up their speaking fees and sell books.

If they are, I sure would. Innoculation, if nothing else.

And give her all kinds of anxiety and jealousy attacks?

Oh please. My wife's going to be jealous because some "unstable woman" is after me? Not.

No, you’re going to refuse the women’s advances AND keep it quiet to the wife unless it gets so ridiculous that they begin involving her too.

And then stand up for it, dammit! If you really believe that's the right course for HC, then why didn't he stand up for it?
