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.

Any dirt on this guy?

He would probably be the worst president ever, but I would bet money he doesn't like making passes. Well, at women.

“My problem with Cain is that his record hasn’t been vetted.”

Compared to who?

LOL. I almost want to register at The American Thinker to blast him, but it’s late and I’m feeling charitable.

That line about looking at her reminded me of a humor article I read years ago, about “How to get out of jury duty.” One of the things it suggested was, “Tell the judge you don’t need to see any evidence, you can tell if someone’s guilty just by looking at them.”

Some lawyers seem to think their Spidey sense is the last word.

Still in the laed for mine. I've seen golddiggers and opportunists before. They didn't have credibility to start with and they have gone down hill from there.

Just a thought: When the msm blathers hard, hot, and heavy about something with no specifics, no names, and then trots out someone who has to read from crib notes to get her story straight--after remembering this 'traumatic incident' for 15 years, chances are the whole story is pure BS.

Post-and-run.

It ought to be a crime. I'll take a wild guess that the author of the source opinion is your friend or family member. Otherwise, it is wasted bandwidth.

There are 8 people in the debates. There are other candidates running as well.

Right, just let it play out.

2 weeks ago, people were saying it was necessary to support Cain. Then that story broke.

Vote for who you want.

There will be plenty of time for the tea party to pick their candidate, and Mitt and Newt and Huntsman can fight it out for the Establishment, not tea party, vote.

Right.

The only candidate who is certain not to get Republican votes is Perry, because a terrible debate performance like last Wednesday means a certain loss, and Republicans don’t want a certain loss.

Crossover Democrats might want to pick our weakest candidate for us. Perry could get votes that way. Soros is probably sending Perry money right now.

You’re a silly, gullible, worthless, spineless, gutless, idiot, asshat that bends whichever way the politically correct winds blow. I don’t give a hoot how long you have been a member of FR.

Why don’t you go over to the “Dark Side” at Huff Po or Daily Kos.

Nobody gives a ring-tailed, red-rat’s rear-end how you vote. I suspect you are an anonymous defender of PSU and Joe Paterno, too.

You are worthless and weak.

Piss off!

JMO!

You need to take your focus off of keeping Perry out (what are his poll numbers now?) and focus on keeping Romney out.

THAT’S the candidate the Dems want us to nominate.

Soros is not funding Perry. That’s just silly.

Ron Paul is the only one serious about making cuts.

And that includes the defense budget.

Most Conservatives understand that we have really serious spending troubles, but they don’t want to make cuts in defense spending.

I personally care more about cuts than anything else.

Other Conservatives believe that cuts are very important, but Israel’s defense is also important.

If Perry debated against Obama like he debated on Wednesday, we’d lose.

And Soros and all the rest know that.

No political figure has ever done worse in a televised debate.

Politics aside (and Perry is just as bad on that front), Republicans don’t want their nominee to be someone who is likely to not only lose, but cause the Republican Brand to be damaged, and cause the loss of House and Senate seats.

Republicans don’t want the Republican Candidate to be embarrassingly bad at politics.

Democrats DO want he Republican Candidate to be embarrassingly bad at politics.

Rick Perry’s performance was the most embarrassingly bad in the history of televised politics.

Republicans don’t want that.

Have I been watching the same debates as you?

Israel is explicitly discussed in many debates.

Many candidates have said that Iran must be stopped, by the United States, because they present a threat to Israel.

Do you dispute this?

Some Conservatives will not cut one dollar from the defense budget if it means that Israel could possibly be put at greater risk.

That’s the way it is.

There’s a foreign policy debate tonight.

Do you think that any candidate will mention a threat to Israel as a justification for any of their proposals?

If they don’t, it will signal a shift in their thinking on this matter.

And that’s fine. There are constituencies within the Republican Party for whom the security of Israel is the top priority.

Personally, I’m all about cuts. We have a huge deficit, we spend way too much money, and we have to find ways to cut spending to avoid an economic collapse. But that’s just my own personal opinion.

Oh, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich (as well as Rick Perry, and Huntsman) are competing for the Establishment / RINO spot.

One of those guys will get that spot.

Cain, Bachmann, Paul, Santorum (sorta) are competing for the tea party / conservative spot.

We will see, after the first early caucuses and primaries who the top tea party / conservative is, and who the top establishment / RINO is. The tea parties will line up behind the tea party conservative candidate and the news media will line up behind the the establishment RINO.

And then the 2 candidates will battle.

And then we’ll have a nominee. Unless we don’t. In which case maybe we can get Palin in a brokered convention.
