Herman Cain to Endorse Newt Gingrich For President After Suspending Campaign
The Daily Mail ^ | 12-4-2011 | Staff - AP

Posted on 12/04/2011 9:04:07 PM PST by TitansAFC

With the Republican field’s first major test just weeks away, the failed presidential bid of Herman Cain is throwing his support behind the current frontrunner.

Sources told Fox 5 Atlanta that Herman Cain will endorse the presidential bid of Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Several sexual harassment allegations and a claim of a long-term affair left the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO’s White House bid all but destroyed.

Boy, you aren’t kidding.

As I have pointed out several times, there are WAY too many GOP women with a crush on Handsome Mitt.

There will soon be someone stopping by to refute this article.

Time will tell, but it sure makes sense to me that Herman Cain would endorse the man who’s treated him respectfully all along and that man is Newt Gingrich.

The Handlers of Newt, Cain, Perry and Romney are brilliant..
Herding the republicans like sheep..

The also lead away from Bachmann, Paul and the other guy..
The sheep don’t see it..

And the primarys get nearer Newt will say even more of what you want to hear..

The truth is..... Bachmann is the ONLY conservative..
The rest is just Kabuki Theater.. posturing and strange noises..
Costumes, makeup, and masks..

He just might be,they aren’t that much apart on most issues,
took a sort of test/quis here on freepers a couple of weeks ago who would be the perfect potus acording to how I would solve problems, and Newt 86% and Herman 78% the others lower
but what do I know, so far in my seven decades, my advise goes mostly unheeded LOL

Hello Nana!

That thought is interesting. If it occurred the left would surely continue it attacks on Cain. Considering the amount of baggage Gingrich has I would think he would not want to add Cain's to the ticket.

Newt Gingrich = John McCain without the military service, but with a bigger gut, more hair and more wives.

It’s going to be fun watching the Perrybots try to rebuild all the bridges they’ve burned. You reap what you sow. Same with Paul supporters they are so obnoxious it doesn’t matter if you agree with Paul on something you completely turn the guy off because of those who follow him.

I’m leaning Paul. I know he has foreign policy issues, but the Economy is more important to me. We are for all practical purposes bankrupt. We have to change our tax system and cut real spending or face catastrophe.

No one should be surprised as they've both cheered each other on as we saw and continue to see. However it's being reported Cain says there will be no endorsement on Monday of any candidate......tsk tsk..me thinks this might be disinformation from our guys....making the democrates squirm.

Yep. I tried to give Perry an honest look for a long time. But after seeing not one single Perry supporter who could behave in a civil manner, I gave up on Perry. If Perry draws that kind of despicable person to his campaign, I don’t want anything to do with Perry.

Is this true?

There seem to be two posts alleging the Cain endorsement, but both are based on a twitter post from an "unnamed source" to Fox Atlanta.

Pretty shaky journalism, if not outright fabrication. I'll wait for the official announcement.

If the Savior himself endorsed Gingrich/Romney 2012 I would risk Hell and still not vote for these RINOs. I have compromised my principles way too many times with the GOP. I thought the GOP was coming around in 2010. Well ... I was fooled yet again.

No more.

Newt is a scholar who understands history, details of governmental affairs, current events and global politics. They won’t be able dismiss him with the standard “Republicans are stupid” attack.

His breadth of knowledge and brilliant analytical skills will shine during the presidential debates. He will educate the public while crushing Obama. He has the experience needed for the dismantling of the federal bureaucracy.

I gave Cain the benefit of the doubt, but he’s hung himself politically when it looks like ‘birds of a feather.’ I will not vote for Newt for too many reasons on which to elaborate. The RHINOs better wake up that we’re puking back on them what they’re trying to feed us. If they want Obama light, sorry, they’ll get the full calories and deserve what they get.

Gingrich-led Republicans....the result:

* Four consecutive balanced budgets
* Over $400 billion of debt paid off
* Bipartisan welfare reform
* 11 million new jobs
* Unemployment falling to under 4%.

No candidate in the race can match Newt Gingrich’s 35-year career as a public figure advocating, explaining and achieving ‘conservative reforms’ in government.

These so called legitimate news agencies - need the herman cain to drive the traffic to their crappy websites, Cain could be dead and they would still be posting crappy articles on him. Palin produces the same kind of traffic...that is why the liberal and so call mainstream outlets never stop talking about her.

If you trust Cain to be president, it means you trust his political judgment.

Apparently you no longer trust Cain’s political judgment (and you must therefore be happy that Cain is no longer running) because you don’t trust his choice to endorse Newt.
