Skip to comments.Spokesman says Cain withholding an endorsement
Posted on 12/30/2011 4:20:52 PM PST by markomalley
Don't expect Herman Cain to endorse any of the Republican presidential candidates before Tuesday's Iowa caucuses
Cain's campaign manager, Mark Block, tells The Associated Press that Cain hasn't seen in any of the GOP candidates the commitment and resolve to make bold changes to put the country back on track.

That could very well leave a few marks.
Cain is an opportunist. He will endorse Romney
I haven't either.
Wonder how his NEW BOOK sale is going.
Could be. Wouldn't be the first time.
Yeah, but....that’s how he’s been from the beginning. An offer to be vp or Secretary of Defense gets an endorsement real quick. He was never running for POTUS.
He made a similar announcement a few weeks ago.
He’ll endorse the eventual nominee.
Way to lead, Herman.
I’ve about had it with this guy.
At least the other candidates have the commitment and resolve to stay on the race.
Why is Mark Block still around?
Is Cain running or not?!

“I haven’t either.”
Well, I sure have. Anyone who thinks they can lead this country better than one of these candidates needs to step or shut up. These guys have put everything on the line. They have risked their futures. My candidate is a sitting governor. I’m sure he weighed everything before he stepped into an arena to be ridiculed. The one thing that is clear is that they all care about our country. Hermain Cain is a quitter. He didn’t want to be scrutinized for the sake of his beliefs. He just wanted to be loud and picked.. Who cares who he endorses?
Well, he has endorsed Romney before.
I thought Cain said he was going to endorse soon when he dropped out of the campaign? I'm guessing he decided it was better to back a winner and withhold his endorsement till it becomes clear who the likely nominee will be. If Romney wins Iowa and NH, my guess is Cain will jump on the bandwagon.
Absolutely he’s back mitt. He never did know how to pick ‘his friends’ wisely. And he blamed Perry when it was mitt doing the backstabbing. I shuttered when I read that. He’s another one who never went after mitt.
I have no doubt...The old Snake Oil Salesman. And 999 was just that.
Once again, I agree with Mr. Cain.
Cain has a nice paid gig over at Fox Business News during election week (call it a tryout if you will) and CAN'T endorse quite yet.
Err, you still don't know? Cain "suspended" his campaign. Suspended = dropped out. By using the technical term "suspended" he can still use all that campaign cash to travel around, keep his name recognition somewhat high, pay people like Mark Block, etc. Once he has exhausted all that money people sent him, then Block will disappear and we won't hear much from Cain anymore - at least till he gets a higher profile radio or TV gig.
Just kidding! I still love Herman Cain. I just couldn't resist.
Cain is being remarkably restrained in not telling the GOP to take a hike.
This was anticipated. And Newt’s people said Cain was endorsing Newt!
Maybe Cain has already picked a candidate to endorse, but he just can’t remember who it was.
Then you are a bad guesser, my friend. Romney is the least bold per Cain. :)
THIS Newt person doesn’t want Cain to endorse Newt.
The longer he waits, the less it matters.
The problem is no candidate has said the magic words...
I know, I know..
He continues to raise funds via “friends of herman cain” and he still retains his campaign staff, but he isn’t running.
He needs to have an excuse to give the wifey for when he goes on “business trips.”
I can’t stand Newt.
I am endorsing Perry 2012
Couldn’t agree more with y’all
Oh, who cares? I find it hard to believe that any of these endorsements would matter. If you can’t make up your own mind and you need another politician to tell you whom to vote for, you’re lost.
Cain recently told Hannity that he would have a big announcement in January that would “blow this race wide open.” I haven’t forgotten that, and I’ll be watching. I’m betting it’s just more hot air.
You and I have had our disagreements on some of these threads (I'm a huge FORMER Cain supporter), but I totally agree with your assessment here.
Cain let the media play him like he was their bi*ch. I lost a good deal of respect for the man. I supported him financially, and defended him and his record in public. He thanks us by quiting and making us look like schmucks.
Thanks Herman, but I could give a rats arse which candidate a quitter endorses. Now please just go away.
Knew Cain would not endorse Perry as his campaign blamed Perry in the beginning for the “allegations” against him. Never thought he would back Newt...imo ..the man is an opportunist. Also, I believe Cain will get a job with Faux News
Kind of a brown nose towards Romney.
Hi, Dave! How are you feeling?
I don’t care who Cain endorses. I find them all just as unacceptable as I found him to be as a candidate.
Sit down and shut up, Mark Block, et al.
And, I can’t stand Romney, so there! What up!
Can’t stand Newt or Romney. So, yep, what up?
“I dont care who Cain endorses. I find them all just as unacceptable as I found him to be as a candidate.”
You know, I’m almost sympathetic to your frustration except, there is no one better than Rick Perry. Consider him with a perfect partner, who I once believed was Palin, and I just know we have a huge chunk of our country back. Add an AG with integrity and loyalty to all the people, not just minorities, we’re moving. Bring in a Secretary of the Treasury who loves his country enough to pay his own taxes without having to be caught, we’re in business. I can’t sell you on Rick Perry. He has to do that and he’s running out of time. Although he’s not exactly running in place, I expect his mad dash to come in South Carolina. Listen to see if there’s something there to like.
I would like to know who your ideal candidate would be.
Still like Cain__too bad his bimbo eruptions derailed the train. Herman is not suited to handle all of the BS that goes along with the presidency although the man has leadership abilities. I say enjoy your retirement years Herman and scrooge politics.
It all shucks Bigtime.
The equal protection of innocent human life is non-negotiable, being as it is the primary reason we even have government.
Rick Perry is pro-choice for states on abortion, just like Gerald R. Ford and Ron Paul. That’s a deal-killer.
So is his promise to the Susan B. Anthony List to support immoral, unconstitutional “fetal pain” legislation. The constitutional criteria is whether or not they are a person, not whether or not they can feel pain. And even Perry admits that the child is a person.
I wonder if he thinks it is okay to put a bullet through the heart of a paraplegic, since they won’t feel a thing, or to off Grandpa if you give him enough morphine?
Because there is no moral difference between the child in the womb and any other person.
“...hasn’t seen in any of the GOP candidates the commitment and resolve to make bold changes to put the country back on track
That could very well leave a few marks.”
Sadly, the marks may stick to Mr. Cain first. What happened to his commitment and resolve?
Rick Perry is about as pro-life as anyone can get. If his strengths in that area don't satisfy your need to have complete government control over the issue, then you're absolutely correct to look elsewhere.
His views have changed and strengthened over the years. That's what missionaries go on missions for. To change people's minds, views and beliefs. You should be celebrating, NARAL loathes Rick Perry and his pro-life stance.
Also, Perry changed his mind on a key issue which is rape and incest. That's what the pro-life movement demanded. It's unlikely to change any pro-life vote because you can't satisfy them. Here is more criticism. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/12/28/1049394/-Rick-Perry-transforms-from-anti-choice-extremist-to-anti-choice-extremist
Your following comment is despicable,”I wonder if he thinks it is okay to put a bullet through the heart of a paraplegic, since they wont feel a thing, or to off Grandpa if you give him enough morphine?” especially to those of us who have lost loved ones. You may think you're righteous, but believe me, you should be filled with self-doubt on that.
You're a good match for Governor Perry, frankly.
Your following comment is despicable
How so? Please explain the moral difference between lawless laws that say that unborn persons can be killed if they can't feel pain and saying that it is okay to shoot paraplegics, who can't feel pain, or that it is okay to kill innocent people if you give them enough morphine.
“You’re a good match for Governor Perry, frankly.”
No. You’re wrong. He’s a good match for me. My standards are high. My love for mankind is great.
All kinds of wonderful people in the world. I don’t judge. Rick Perry doesn’t meet your standards as good a man as he is? Pity. I’d still like you to say who it is that meets your standards. Name. You have already said it’s not one of our current or ex candidates. Who is it?
I would like to add one thing. I don’t believe abortions should be funded with taxpayer dollars anywhere in the world under any circumstances ever. That they are, infuriates me. I also wish there was no such thing as miscarriages. What is your plan to stop that? I wish children of any age didn’t die. I wish old people didn’t have to die ever. I wish there was no pain that Tylenol can’t fix. Who is your candidate?
You didn’t explain your prior nasty comment.
You’re spouting a bunch of weird nonsense.
And you just tried to put words in my mouth.
Three strikes, yer out.
