Curtains For Cain
American Thinker ^ | November 12, 2011 | Tom Thurlow

Posted on 11/12/2011 12:33:36 AM PST by reformedcrat

The fatal blow to the campaign has been made. Whether he knows it or not, Herman Cain's campaign is over. I would be overjoyed to be wrong, but the numbers and believability of sexual harassment claims against him have amounted to the critical mass of complaints that end the Cain campaign. It is only a matter of time before everyone realizes it.

You are only pixels on a screen to me.

As you are to me.

However, unlike you, I will not presume to know your inner workings because you have not revealed them to me. I don’t know what makes you tick, or what drives your assumptions about others. You are only pixels on a screen to me. If we could meet in person over hot chocolate and a good doughnut, I am sure your tone would be less belligerent.

And perhaps yours would be less condescending.

I have had the pleasure of meeting many FReepers in person and not one of those occasions has been anything less than a good experience. In fact, some Of those have developed into strong friendships that I cherish.

If you follow the thread, you'll see that a tapper came out and made inaccurate accusations but failed to back them up when challenged to do so,

This is a person who has demonstrated a mean streak before and as I have never allowed her to get away with her games, she dislikes me. Instead of apologizing and admitting she was wrong, she tried to cover herself by making lame insults. I just laugh at her; it's entertainment to me.

You jumped into this out of the blue. I had not even communicated with you, so this may be a misunderstanding.

I will chalk this up to such for the sake of civility, unless you have different intentions.

Peace back atcha. :-)

1) LIE.

Affirmative action is negative step

2) MISLEADING.

He supported the concept of TARP, but disagreed with what it turned into.

3) WHO CARES?

There were NO good choices in 2008. NONE.

He left Godfather’s in 1996. Its current state is not pertinent.

I know. Several Freepers have written to me privately, btw, to say that they agree but that they don’t dare to post their opinion. This is not a good thing.

I get similar private e-mails and you're right; it's not a good thing.

It's what the groupthinkers want. They want to bully people who don't agree with them into silence and those of us who have no fear of them frustrate them to no end.

They always seem somewhat shocked when they yip out their little attacks and find that some of us won't back down.

MNJohnnie is one I used to like and respect, but lately, he comes off as vicious and angry. At least he had the decency to slink away when he was unable to back up his false accusations.

Not noble as an admission of error would have been, but certainly better than that airhead who made her silly and unfounded accusations. When she found out she was wrong, rather than admit it, she started screeching that I'd had my posts scrubbed and other such nonsense, only making herself look worse. I got a good laugh off of that and was tempted to ping Jim Robinson and the Mods so that maybe they could restore my "scrubbed posts" for the dingbat. Pretty desperate excuse, IMO. LOL

The only rule I've seen here specifically pertaining to the primaries is that there will be no campaigning for Mitt Romney.

So, I hope that those who feel uncomfortable about standing up to the little hit squad around here will reconsider.

Courtesy ping to MNJohnnie for mention.

I recognize that there are some Republicans who don’t agree that we have financial problems.

You are one of them.

I understand this.

I think we need to make serious cuts.

You don’t, I get it.

It’s a difference of opinion.

There are a lot of Republicans who don’t understand that we have serious problems. You’re one of them. I get that.

There no reason to throw insults around. You can vote for higher deficits and higher taxes if you want.

I’d like a President who will make serious cuts.

We haven’t had one of those in my lifetime.

I would like one, sometime.

Please stop destroying the United States, thank you.

We need cuts everywhere. I’m not sure that all the military bases all over the world defend us, or make us safe. They just raise our taxes or create deficits that eventually we will have to pay.

Right, the establishment will blast a tea party candidate.

But we just have to be prepared. The tea party candidate should be squeaky clean, for one thing. That could help, make it a little harder for msm.

You cannot persuade by using the fallacy of the false choice.

Only a Democrat would say you have a choice to cut the military or nothing.

You are exposed as an ANTI-SEMITE *AND* A DEMOCRAT MOLE!

If you go back a few months, you will see I had a plan to cut $400 billion from current year and $800 billion in 2013 without touching the military or even Social Security in the near term. (But I have a plan that would cut SS significantly within a few years without affecting anyone ABLE to work.)

I didn’t say you had “scrubbed your posts.” I said you had “scrubbed your spots,” lol!! That’s a reference to the famous leopard metaphor. Geez, this is pathetic.

B.S. you are a HACK for Romeny campaign. You NEVER were for Cain. You are just doing what they told you to go out and do.

No objective person can look at the evidence and come up with what you said.

Geez, this is pathetic.

Yes, it sure is.

You made accusations and when challenged, you could not back them up.

Everything I have posted is out there.

You have created some character in your mind and tried to attribute it to me. Stop feeling so insecure around me; I don't bite. I just don't put up with any BS.

When you were unable to produce any evidence to support your nasty smears, you resorted to lame insults and a bunch of nonsensical screeching.

A decent person would have admitted her error and moved on. And you may have even gained some respect from me and others.

Instead, choose to keep digging deeper into your hole.

Madame Defarge indeed. Blinded by her hatred. Now, who does that better suit? {snicker!}

Oh....and...

The popular idiom is "A leopard cannot change his spots."

Refereces to "scrubbing spots" are somewhat vague. Don't expect people to think you're clever just because you're trying to come off as "complicated."

Ooooops! LOL

My friends who are lawyers would agree with you, I’m sure. Once one of them once said something like, “If we could figure it all out, we wouldn’t need judges.”

Based on this crappy article? I haven’t read any comments besides yours yet, so I don’t know who else has picked it apart. I can assure you that I can. This “article” is another hit piece.

For starters, here’s one piece of the story-teller’s “journalistic creativity”:

“Writer” Thurlow: “And in answer to a Wall Street Journal reporter’s question, Cain said that “there will probably be other” complaints of sexual harassment.”

Here are Cain’s actual words that the writer was referring to (he even linked to them): Cain: “As you know, when you run for the highest office in the land, there are going to be some accusations that are going to come out of the woodwork. They’re going to come from anywhere. And I have said this before. There will probably be others, not because I am aware of any, but because the machine to keep a businessman out of the White House is going to be relentless.”

Where do you see ANYTHING in these words where Mr. Cain says he expects more “sexual harassment” claims?

If anything, this strengthens my support for the main because it is further proof he is feared, and so he is smeared.

I am a lawyer and I could tell she was full of sh*t just by looking at her. One of us is wrong, and since I can tell that his entire article is full sh*t just be looking at it, I’ll go with him being wrong. Wow, I’d be embarrassed to write such worthless drivel.

The more I think about this article, the more bizarre it is.

I’m no lawyer, and I looked at this situation objectively, since I have no feeling one way or another about Cain, and I knew it was bull as soon as Gloria Allred made her stupid joke. Sorry, you don’t make a sexual joke in front of someone you think has been the victim of sexual harassment—when you’re her lawyer!

Agreed, and for the record, I am not in the tank for Cain either. Based on what I’ve heard from him to date, he sounds genuine, capable and like a true God-fearing conservative, so he is attractive - at this point in the race. I really just do my research on each candidate as time permits and wait and see.

My whole thing with Cain right is the obviousness of this media, Rat and/or Rino hit on him. As you know, conservatives need to defend against these sorts of attacks on all conservative candidates. Whoever orchestrates them (along with the media), needs to be smacked down hard.

Time for bed. Have a great day!

Definitely need to cut back on my caffeine intake, eh?
