Skip to comments.BREAKING!! Aide: Herman Cain will stay in the race
Posted on 11/29/2011 3:06:48 PM PST by Jim Robinson
After reports surfaced Tuesday morning that pizza magnate Herman Cain is reassessing his 2012 Republican presidential nomination bid, POLITICO obtained a statement from a Cain campaign spokesman regarding his candidates consideration of dropping out of the race.
Yes, the campaign spokesman said Tuesday when asked whether Cain would definitely remain in the race.
The clarification comes after the National Review Online released statements that Cain made in a conference call with campaign aides Tuesday morning. During the call, Cain made the following statements, We have to do an assessment as to whether or not this is going to create too much of a cloud, in some peoples minds, as to whether or not they would be able to support us going forth, Cain said.

Says you, who's only been here a little over thirty days. You might not want to stridently attack the Tea Party's best hope in this campaign until you've established some credibility around here.
Sure turns off the idiots though. Their problem is, Newt really is more educated and more intelligent than they are, and they just can't stand it.
His fund raising will not dry up until Cain himself withdraws from the race. The bimbo eruptions are orchestrated by some one who is deathly afraid of Cain candidacy. It is either the White House war room or a rival GOP candidate.
You're mad, delusional...unwilling to even assess the facts/charges calmly......can't one have a civil discourse here any more?
sSort of like the “fire in my belly” quotes made by another person who was ‘definitely definitely’ going to run. :/
My gosh - is that true! I guess I'd better send him some more money then!
I feel as you, sick to my stomach. I believe this would have come out when he first ran for office if any of it were true.
I can't imagine how we will ever get decent people to run for office when they are treated this horribly. I repeat your prayer again....
God be with you and your family, Mr. Cain!
you’re getting alot of inquiries on HAIRBOY just because Perry also has that reputation,
Isn’t Perry known as Gov. Goodhair, not Hairboy?
Maybe I should drive over and check it out?!
I not sure about the 13 yr affair, but these allegations are all coming from his 3 years with the National Restaurant Assn. I would suggest first looking there. It seems peculiar that these “offenses” only occurred in this time span and there are no other complaints.
or, tell me..if you donate tomorrow, and a day or so later, he drops out, do you think he should return your donation?
He saying that America is still the shining city and we can return to the top of the hill. He also says he will never apologize for America’s greatness.
He’s dead Jim.
Sorry had to say it.
Honestly, although these accusations won’t change my opinion of the man, his campaign is in some serious trouble.
Dear Patriots and Supporters,
As you probably heard yesterday, a troubled Atlanta business woman used national media outlets to promulgate a fabricated, unsubstantiated story about a 13 year affair with me. I am writing you today to assure you that this womans story is completely false.
I do know Ms. White. I have helped her financially at times over the past few years, just as I have helped many friends and acquaintances throughout the years. I thought Ms. White was a friend in need of a supportive hand to better her life.
Ms. White has made it apparent that she was abusing the friendship.
But now I am asking for your friendship. I am also asking for your prayers and support. This is a trying time for my family, my campaign, and for me. It is also a trying time for our country as we are all distracted from the truly important issues facing our nation.
This evening I have an important speaking engagement at Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan, where I will be outlining my foreign policy and national security plan. While recent events have taken a toll on me, the people in the audience this evening will not know it. I will deliver my message with vigor and enthusiasm.
Let me assure you, I am not deterred. Americas future is too important. We will continue on this journey to make America great once again.
Thank you and God bless.
Signed and posted to Facebook. Thanks!
You are a coward and quitter. Not one of these accusations has held up—not one. This last one was created because Cain’s alleged hitting on dumb blonds didn’t get traction. So they find a homely black women who is unemployed and trot her out. Cain, as a Christian, apparently gave her money over the years. She was probably hoping for more than money along the way. Didn’t pan out.
She turns out to be just another slime bag bimbo.
But hey, you’re just all a twitter with the idea Cain’s candicy is dead—aren’t you?
If you tske time to read the posts you’ll see that most of us have not lost our enthusiasm for the man.
And you know what else? Even if some of the slime sticks I’m sticking with Cain. You know why? Because if I had to choose between Perry, Romney, Gingrich and Cain to fix the country I would choose Cain.
Doesnt matter - good hair or hair boy - it’s still confusing.
We seldom get any good news at this site or elsewhere. Thanks for the post Jim.
Reports trucks outside Cain’s Iowa offices delivering yard signs....
I think Newt is worse.
Right on the money, my friend. We've got Herman, and if he sinks, we've got to do whatever it takes to get Sarah to step back in.
They're the only two on the horizon that I trust to carry out the will of the American people in the frightful days ahead.
Please see my #162...I’d like your take..
Looks like a good crowd at Hillsdale college.
He’s taking pictures and shaking hands. The secret service are easy to spot.
Delivering more yard signs!!!
and I wouldn’t vote for either one....I have a long memory on newt, he’s only for newt and loves being called the most intelligent one in the room, but they said Karl Marx was intelligent also...it takes more than that to lead...
“I’m sure that will allow you to feel very high-minded and self-righteous about yourself.”
I’m sure that there are a lot of people (I’m one) who will sleep just fine. Anyone who wants to try and make it without the conservative bitter clinger vote is welcome to try. I’d rather write in my vote than give in to a bunch of traitorous parasites.
Are you seriously backing this candidate?? If so I have lost all trust in you and this forum. HC is no more qualified to be President than Mickey Mouse. What are you thinking???
Okay....... Confusion is a state for some I guess.
I like it. All detractors can go to hell, he’s staying in the race.
>> Cain will be OUT by the weekend, at the latest <<
Maybe not. Call me a cynic, but let’s follow the money:
As long as naive-but-well-meaning contributors are still sending him greenbacks, even at a much-reduced level, he may have a sufficient incentive to stay in the race.
Also, if he gives up now, it may hurt the sales of his book.
“If everyone sends $10 every week or so hell have plenty of money. Most importantly, he will be beholden to no one but the people.”
I am a $9.99 per week contributor. That is what I can give and you’re right, if we had 100,000 people that can only give that much, his fundraising will do fine.
Doesn’t matter to me. If you want to be guided by Obama’s Chicago way of eliminating Obama’s competition (see how he won his Senate seat), so be it. I will contribute to him regardless. But by all means, you keep following Obama’s scorched earth strategies.
Cain is faltering, I have always wondered when people would tire of his vague answers on how he would arrive at a solution.
He needs to move back into private life.
But be prepared, this is what Newt will experience up to the day of election. America will tire of Newt’s past that the media will play everyday.
I was watching Bret Baier’s panel pronounce him “toast”; *finished*; *done*; *out*.
Reminder to watch Herman Cain tomorrow on Neil Cavuto’s program. Fox News Channel at 4:00OM EST; 3:00PM Central; 1:00PM Pacific.
He will answer all questions and talk about moving on with his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination.
What’s the man supposed to do?
Sue a woman with no money?
He’s already destroyed.
Cancer failed to kill him, but it looks like a bunch of liars, opportunists, and pussy republicans did.
You should go ahead and leave now.
America doesn’t deserve Herman Cain.
I’m with you on this one but another FReeper did make a good point. Mitt knows he has a problem with the base and is doing his best to avoid agitating us but Newt seems to be trying to anger us.
Will that speech be online anywhere?
We won’t ever have decent people run again.
At this point, I think America is pretty much done.
I have been with Newt for quite some time. Whether Cain stays in or not ...I don’t believe he will win the GOP nod for president. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Newt.
Great news! Go Cain!
The history of Presidential primary campaigns, just like stock in a company, is “up” and “down”. This one is no different. There will be a backlash. You just watch. It happened a month ago. I predict it will happen again. His base will be fortified and electrified and will go on offense ($$$) against the Establishment which planted, and then disgusting people in the Republican Party who stirred the storm even further, this high tech lynching. And as I always say, if the Establishment knocks out the biggest threat to them, they will then turn on what or whom they perceive to be the next biggest threat and go ballistic on them as well, scorched earth, hard ball, no prisoners. Take it to the bank. No one is safe from this dirty trick-”oppos” scourge (except the GOP candidates they can live with, who will either govern as RINOs if elected, or who will be so boring that the GOP base will not turn out for them and Obama will be in for another four years—which of course is what they really want. Paramount is control of both major political parties at the senior levels). There is so much verifiable on Obama that they could have hyped like this incident, but as we know, they worship at the feet of Emperor Obongo, and they quake in their boots at the prospect of an eloquent Black successful conservative articulating Reagan-based principles, with so much national exposure in the media as a Presidential or Vice Presidential candidate which would screw up their whole Democrat Minority Entitlement Narrative Racket (DMENR), that they cannot countenance it.
With the press like this, who really wants the job?
I think Cain should just very publicly tell her to “prove it, come forward with the blue dress”...
