Charleston, S.C. Speaking at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, Herman Cain just announced his presidential endorsement.
After saying that it would not please the media (but it would please the American people), Cain said he was not endorsing a candidate, but instead, would endorse we the people.

1) Not serious... Never was
2) Publicity whore
2) People actually voting for this guy for President?
What a cop out!!!!!!!!!!!! plays the SAFE card
What a cop out!!!!!!!!!!!! plays the SAFE card
That’s not an endorsement. That’s just hot air!
Hell even Goldi over a Liberty Post endorsed Gingrich. What does Cain think he’s doing. It’s either going to be Gingrich or Romney up against Obama on Nov. 6. So it’s time to make the hard choices and get on with it.
Cain apparently likes to flit around the edges and is doing it again or so it seems.
Surprised he didn’t endorse 999.
Maybe he was going to endorse Romney but thought the better of it after the last debate? Maybe he was going to endorse Gingrich but got cold feet after his ex-wife’s stunt?
What an idiot!
Hit the road fool, and take your damned pizzas with you.
Hmmm Makes me wonder about Cain......Did the success of his campaign make him realize that people were getting serious about his canidacy? Lose his nerve and quit the race...
I’ve heard his last two endorsement pimping calls to Sean Hannity recently and his constant laughing and is just got on my NERVES big time. Either shut up or spit it out. Looks like it should have been the first one, just shut up.
Glad he is out of the race.
And to think that I gave this shmuck $100. Throwing good money at bad.
I think Jesse Jackson's 1984 presidential campaign motto was “We The People.”
A group endorsement of Barack Obama with fellow Republicans Colin Powell and David Brooks.
No, you're wrong, Mr. Cain. I'm one of the American people who sent your campaign money, and this doesn't please me one little bit. It disappoints me.
It's all hands on deck time, sir. I'm sorry you won't be joining the fight for the survival of our beloved nation as we've known her.
So does this mean that he is going to write in "we the people"?
What an idiotic thing to say!
What will Sean do with his Herman Cain segment for tonight AFTER the debate? Un-invite him? Rush through it? Poor Sean. LOL
I LOVE it.
You Newt supporters are just sore because you were SO SURE he was going to endorse Newt even though I have been trying to tell you that wasn’t going to happen.
Cain was waiting for a candidate to pick up some of his bold solutions platform (i.e., 999) but no one did, and Cain even said he did not see anyone in the race who was willing to make real change in Washington. So he’s focusing on Congressional races.
I don’t blame him ONE BIT. Every candidate and their supporters piled on and threw Cain under the bus instead of denouncing what the MSM was doing. I don’t think any of them deserve Cain’s endorsement.
As for me, if Cain doesn’t gain traction as a write-in, I will be voting SANTORUM.
Santorum is light years better than Gingrich.
And to think I was actually interested in supporting this guy...he is in need of some serious help...pathetic. Just goes to show me I need to remember to do due diligence
It’s like he’s still running a pizza chain, and he’s got to come up with the gimmick of the week to sell more pies to college students.
I know, right? LOL
I’ve heard Sean promo the Cain appearance two or three times on his radio show, so far today. But, Sean’s voice is loaded with disappointment when he announces it, so I’m sure he’s heard about this by now.
I actually think he should un-invite Cain, at least for now. There are plenty of people who actually have meaningful or important things to contribute at this time who would feel privileged to have face time on Hannity tonight. I bet Governor Palin would be happy to take the time again, especially after being on Hannity’s radio show again today defending Newt from the ex-wife attack.
“As for me, if Cain doesnt gain traction as a write-in, I will be voting SANTORUM.
Santorum is light years better than Gingrich.”
Just say no more...
Herman Cain says, "Lighten up." Gotta love the pun.
“As for me, if Cain doesnt gain traction as a write-in, I will be voting SANTORUM.”
Oh heck, just go all out and write in “We the People.”
Makes just as much sense.
Cain is so seriously unfit for public office and he just put a nail in it...
And after this pathetic announcement, I don’t think anyone WANTS his endorsement.
The QUITTER should have taken off his tinfoil hat soon after quitting.
I think he is right.
Cain would fit right in over at Time magazine when they do the “flunky of the Year” issue.
Yes I heard her on while I was running an errand to the bank. She didn’t back off for one second about saying she’d vote for him IF she lived in SC and said this would help Newt. I’ll have to ff’d on the DVR through the Herman segment on Sean tonight.
I can’t wait for the debate . . . should be interesting and I’m hoping for a home run or two from Newt!
Will you still be laughing if Obama is reelected? Your post is more than a disappointment, it’s despicable.
So who are the easily fooled crazy people falling for now?
Meanwhile, all of his former supporters here will pretend they were always for Newt or some other “non-establishment” candidate. What a laugh.
Most of the current republican candidates seem similar to Obama. Americans (and the GOP) deserve what they get.
More Cain BS. Can;t believe so many fell for this clown.
What did he accomplish...aside from maybe helping Specter long enough to get us backstabbed by the bastard?
Allow me to make a bold prediction - Cain will not gain traction. There! I said it!
Oh yeah, I did support him at one time.
He’s never been anything but a flimflam man.
Delusional, but it must be a comfy fit.
“I endorse Wendy’s late night menu!”
I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it. There's literally zero upside for Obama to participate in a debate with Newt, and the press is guaranteed to cover his ass with anything even theoretically plausible for not his not participating in one.
Cain endorsed Us? That’s nice.
“I think he is right.”
I do to. I think he’s in the “Anybody But Obama” camp right now. Wish he’d endorse Newt though.
God what a clown
all jive....no shuck
Glad to see Herman endorse the people..., no one else is, including the Tea Party.
Wasilla Warrior playing hard, playing selfless for the team. Got to love it.
Maybe Obama will try not to participate but guaranteed Newt will dog him every place he goes. Newt already said he would follow him to every town. That was finally the reason Douglas agreed to debate Lincoln so maybe it will work again.
