NEW YORK (AP) Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain says "all of these women are lying" about unwanted sexual advances.
In appearance on David Letterman's "Late Show" airing Friday night, the former pizza executive is again denying any impropriety during his time running the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.

Two work for Soetoro
Normally where there’s smoke there is fire but not in this case.
How silly to go on that show. You’re going to lose me Herman if you keep this crap up.
Liberals are outraged. But if the lying slut defense was valid for Der Slickmeister, they can hardly say Cain’s wrong in resorting to it. And they don’t even have a stained dress to prove his depravity!
He gets a good reception on the late night shows. I remember a fellow named Barack Obama went on them.
But you don’t like Cain having a good time. Go away, troll.
Why? Herman has to go into enemy territory to win over converts, he won’t win by only preaching to the choir.
They’ve had 15 years to report and they wait until he’s doing well? Hah.
I’m shocked anyone believes anything. If there were anything to it, they would have came out long before.
He’s probably a Newtbot saying that all the Cain supporters need to get behind Newt.
Yeah... if Cain is failing, its because he’s not up to running a professional campaign. Which isn’t the fault of the liberal media.
That said, the personal attacks on him are unfair and he deserves to be evaluated on his proposals, character and fitness, not over what happened 15 years ago.
What is that supposed to mean?
Last week I griped about Rick Perry for going onto that degenerate lowlife Letterman’s show. Any conservative lowering themselves to appear with that perv automatically drops a few pegs with me. I like Cain, but yes, this causes me to lose a bit of respect for him, too.
That you say you’re losing Cain because he meets the comedians.
He’s at its best when he’s relaxed and funny. Its a side of him people don’t get to see often enough.
Uh, Dude. Bad call.
OK pal that is fine but Troll? WTF is that?
Letterman is not a judge of human character. Given his raunchy behavior on CBS with his female co-workers, I’m surprised he still has his “night” job.
He is running a professional campaign. There’s a difference between that and between running a campaign according to the professionals.
The attacks over the last two weeks have been just unremitting. Over and over and over and over, even here on FR.
It doesn’t even matter what he says, the media will twist it put out a crappy headline, and then later admit, “Cain was right”.
Why can’t people see what the media is trying to do?
OK, my apology. We have enough with the Left attacking our candidates. We don’t need to help them do it.
With Mittens, excepted of course. ;-)
Cain should not even respond...he has hired an atty and that closes discussing it to Letterman, Leno or the rest of the commedians that want to make headline news. Herman...tell them you are NO longer discussing the issue on the advice of your atty...Letterman should know..didnt he have female problems?
I agree. Letterman stands for everything we hate..and the feeling is mutual. Why go on the show? I don’t think you will ever see Gingrich going on that show. He’s too smart.
Utah Binger a troll? ROFMLAO
I do see what they’re doing.
And as for the Left’s attacks on him, you develop a thick skin running for President.
If you can’t take that kind of pressure, you’re not ready for the toughest job in the world.
Cain’s main problem is that he doesn’t come across as an ideas guy. He has other strengths but being quick on his feet with a informed answer isn’t one of them.
What’s the problem?
Ronald Reagan on Sonny & Cher:
G.W. Bush on Letterman in 2000:
Now, how exactly is a dog & pony show going to affect your vote?
Do Herman Cain’s moral values parallel your own? Does he love and obey God? Do you have confidence in him to fix the economy?
If you said yes to all three of those, then don’t sweat the small stuff.
I offered my apology. I won’t speak ill of a fellow conservative, without good reason.
Sorry, I was stating an opinion regarding substance of a candidate for the presidency. I have been in Cain’s corner since his beginning. I think for him to go and be confronted by a low life idiot is a mistake.
He didn’t call me but he should have.
"All"? "All"? That makes it sound like a lot of women, not two women with an agenda and two anonymous women with unspecified complaints. Couldn't he just have said "a handful of women? Or would that have been taken as a comment on breast size, just as his gesture may have referred to their height? Once this conversation gets going, there is no safe path . . . which is why the far left attacked Cain this way.
I have no problems with his values. People’s concern is he doesn’t articulate them clearly enough. Ronald Reagan was a natural at that kind of stuff.
The media and the Left took to calling The Gipper a “Teflon-coated” politician because none of their attacks seemed to stick to him or make any difference in his popularity.
And we didn’t have the blogs, alternative media and Free Republic around in those days.
I am with you on all three but this is 2011, not past history.
As we speak I am listening to Mark Levin. I know what he would say.
He’s better than Letterman and I’m sure the audience saw it. I’d advise to go on shows like this. It plays to his real strength of being warm and accessible. He doesn’t do well in a formal setting.
That is my opinion, too.
Leftie audiences don’t see shit. Cain is wasting his time trying.
I guess the question we have to ask ourselves, is do we want an ideas man as president?
Or do we want someone that we can go to bed each night knowing that we are in good hands?
I want the man who I know is going to be there for me, working for every day for four years. I don’t want to be worrying about whether he’s going to cross the idea, or get some absolute brilliant, but boneheaded idea and stick to it.
I say this as an ideas man myself. Harsh but true. You want someone who can delegate, someone who knows where he stands on the issues.
Cain needs all the exposure he can get. The more outsiders see him the better he looks. Its free exposure and he is strong enough and has the moxie to stand toe to to with Letterman. Its a good move to see him relaxed and funny. Cain will come accross human and it will be good long term for him.
Most of America is not watching Fox news and will not even know Herman exists. Let him hit the circut.
Me to! If Brian Williams announced the sun would rise in the east tomorrow morning, I'd be up at the crack of dawn with a compass just to make sure.
Cain did well on Jimmy Kimmel’s show. Letterman’s a little more creepy to conservatives so I’m looking forward to seeing how Cain does with him.
By the way, I didn’t say I oppose Cain and others going on shows ‘like’ this. I don’t have any problem with that. But I do single out Letterman (and Maher) as being worthless, sub-human filth, whom conservatives should totally shun at all costs.
Ages ago, I actually used to like Letterman. Back during his NBC years. Watched him almost every night. My sister even got me one of those “Top Ten” books of his as a birthday present. Letterman got pretty unwatchable after the switch to CBS, and his bitter lefty side took over. But it was that ‘rape’ joke he directed towards Palin’s 13-year-old daughter, and the following insincere, sarcastic ‘faux’ apology he made, that finally did it for me. I’ve never wanted to personally reach through the tv-screen and throttle someone so much. The guy is just pure garbage, and I can’t wait for the day I read his name in the obiturary.
I think that Mr. Cain can make up his own mind about whether or not to do Letterman or The View or any of the other unsafe venues.
Well, it all depends on what the definition of ‘is’ is...

Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
Click on the cane, (Obama, You're Fired.)
Agreed. Not sure why Conservatives still appear on his show every now and then.
What this meant as a joke?
Actually, thus far, at most one woman (okay, two if you count her lawyer) is lying about unwanted sexual advances. Only Bialek has asserted that Cain made an unwanted sexual advance.
Kraushaar has asserted Cain was a “monster”, but has given no specifics, but we know that she is the sort who regarded a sophomoric e-mail circulated at her next job as “sexual harassment”. Besides that we have the one who’s not talking and remaining anonymous. Again whether Cain’s purported behavior is something a sane person without deBeauvoirian ideological commitments would regard as “harassment” is something neither we nor reporters for the AP know. Nor, given the breadth of the notion of “sexual harassment” feminists have advanced and in some cases codified into law (cf. Kraushaar’s complaint at her next job) is there any basis for inferring that the complaint was based on unwanted sexual advances. And, finally, the “he asked us to arrange a luncheon date” accusation, which involved no assertion that Cain made a sexual advance, unwanted or otherwise.
The fact that both Kraushaar and the still-anonymous complainant settled for a modest severance package, rather than filing an EEOC complaint, actually suggests that their complaints were far weaker than would have been the case were they based on actual unwanted sexual advances.

That's right. There's a difference between a sexual advance, and a woman saying she felt "uncomfortable." A woman can claim she feels "uncomfortable" if she overhears a man tell his wife on the phone, "I can't wait to get home tonight and make mad monkey love with you."
Or she can claim harassment if she sees an email comparing men to women in a computer cartoon. It doesn't mean there was an unwanted sexual advance.
How dare he give Cain a hard time about Mark Block smoking in the internet video, when Letterman used to smoke his cigar on every single show.
I have issues with this show.
Cain did OK on somethings but got mocked hard on others.
Letterman was brutal.
