Skip to comments.Local Tea Party Members Changing Tone on Cain (The media have defeated Cain. I'm sad)
Posted on 12/01/2011 7:26:01 PM PST by Halfmanhalfamazing
ATLANTA - Tea Party activists have been among the strongest supporters of Herman Cain, but a co-founder of the Atlanta Tea Party said she's changed her mind about a candidate she had defended.
"I think he should withdraw from the race at this point but that decision is for Herman and his family to make," said Atlanta Tea Party leader Debbie Dooley.
Dooley said she was troubled by Cain's denials following the FOX 5 I-Team report on Ginger White and her story of 13-year-long affair with Cain. White pointed to phone records showing repeated calls and text messages between the two.
"A reasonable person would assume that he has not been exactly forthright and completely honest about his relationship with her," said Dooley.

At this point, what would really make me happy is to see Santorum start rising in the polls. Or a rebirth of Bachmann's campaign.
I'm 100% committed to anybody but Romney.(and Huntsman - the media love him too much. It's creepy)
Sure, I'd take Perry or Gingrich over Obama, but I'm not exactly enthusiastic about it.
Debbie, Debbie, Debbie.....
You’re allowing yourself to be massaged by your enemy—the media.
If Cain drops out then moving on down the list is Bachman..... No More Rinos!
This is coming from an Atlanta Tea Party?
I would not count Cain out just yet.
Yipe! and she sits on the Intelligence committee?
If Debbie waited a little longer, she could have learned the vast majority of those texts were FROM the lying woman trying to shake down Cain for money. But instead Debbie buys the enemy’s spin without waiting for facts and then piles on and gives them front page headlines.
Some Tea Party leader.
Debbie Dooley has NEVER been a Cain supporter. Do not buy this garbage.
Support around here is still strong for Cain.
He is not defeated yet, and saying so over and over will not make it so.
I bet Debbie winds up endorsing Newt.
His lying and affairs won’t bother her, nor will his numerous anti-Tea Party poisitions
Once again the Left have beaten us.
Don’t worry, if we allowed them to destroy Cain, we’ll also follow suit when they go after the next front runner, and the one after that.
We are so screwed.
You two have some good info..............

over3Owithabrain, how do you know this?

That could be useful information, justsaynomore. Could you give me a link?

So who voted this dipwad turd a leader of anything? Crawl back into mommy’s basement, Debbie, and find your dolly a nice cup of make-believe tea.
You know, Cain was probably one of the most exciting candidates in my memory. Last time I was for Tancredo or Fred Thompson, but neither of them made it through, and I certainly wasn’t excited over the rest of the field.
Cain really has “bold” ideas here with the 999 plan, and it was the primary reason I got on the Cain Train. However, if Cain drops out and the media and the left wins this battle... I think I’ll sit it out this election entirely. I don’t really like any of the candidates, and each have their own problems. Bachmann would be good if she wasn’t constantly scratching out the eyes of her opponents. Santorum was simplistic in his analysis of 999, when in reality the sales tax would be a REPLACEMENT tax, per the logic of the fair tax. Romney and Newt is a no go. Ron Paul is good, but is crazy on foreign policy. Gary Johnson... I have no idea what he even stands for except for being somewhat effiminate in the same way Ron Paul is.
Under ordinary circumstances I’d be able to hold my nose and support one... But, to see Cain get taken out like this... It just doesn’t seem like politics really even matters anymore. We didn’t even get to vote for this guy in the primaries to give our own final opinion. Instead, it was decided for us, and the entire GOP basically turned their backs on this guy.
My conclusion is to simply turn off the news. Stay off the radio. Forget politics altogether. It’s all futile. Next cycle around we’ll still be dealing with the same problems, seeing the same tabloid media going after the same gaffes, seeing the same conservatives giving the same lackluster solutions, seeing the same war on Christmas, seeing the same ACLU cases, seeing the same news articles and the same battles... over and over and over again.

For what I know about this at this point:
1. The phone messages. Mostly her calling him. the times he called her apparently it is him calling her back.
2. Still doesn’t change the fact it is very weird to help out a non-family grown female with money, and not tell your wife about it.
I love Herman Cain and would vote for him in a heartbeat. But Herman has clearly shown he doesn’t have the political saavy to go up against Obama’s Alinsky machine. The Regime would shred him to pieces in the general election.
GOP: Abandon all hope, ye who enter here!
Debbie Dooly needs to see the phone records herself.
As there are none.
This is a high tech lynching by
Rahm Emmanuel and David Alexrod.
They have done this twice before in order
to elect 0bama to the Illinois Senate and the US Senate .
It’s more than heartbreaking — it is, at this point in the process, effectively handing over to the media the power to choose our candidate. We might as well save a lot of time and money, and grassroots work, and let the media take a poll, and we just nominate whomever they tell us to... that’s really what people like this are doing.
I mentor a group and we ardently support Newt - and always send contributions to the Newt Five Dollar Friday Fund - and the last 2 out of 3 weeks we have sent our money to Cain. Tomorrow we are going to try and send Herman double what we would normally send Newt. This is sand and line time. This can’t be allowed to happen. It can’t be allowed.
Cain is almost incidental to it all. I know that is hard to understand, but that is how I feel. The Ann Coulter article that was posted here the last few days is as close as anything I’ve read to what this is all about. Pray for Herman Cain. Men do stupid things all the time. All the time. That doesn’t make him worthless, it makes him a sinner. Pray for Herman.
Huh, imagine. Fox Atlanta, the station that first reported the woman’s allegation, now is able to find a tea party person who is jumping off the Cain Train. What a coincidence. -:)
It ain’t over til its over- Mr. Cain has a long way to come back, but I don’t think he’s dropping out.
I followed her on Facebook for a while, that is how I know.
First they came for Herman Cain ....
Yup. The Truth is still getting on his boots.
How come Ginger goes to all these swanky places with Herman but never takes any pictures? Everbody's got cameras nowadays. And How come she's been "with him" for 13 years, but the only specific time and place she can name was almost 15 years ago (the Holyfield-Tyson fight in Las Vegas)?
I was just getting ready to post about that Iran thing when I clicked on your ‘LOL’ tag. Like dominoes falling around here!!
Don't give up now! Battles are not won overnight. You may believe all is futile, but there is momentum in the Conservative movement. We may not get our first choice in candidates, but overall we are seeing conservatives being elected from Precinct Committeeman on up. The last thing you should do is quit!
They have done this twice before in order to elect 0bama to the Illinois Senate and the US Senate .
You forgot Obama's first Illinois State Senate race for the 13th district in 1994. four primary opponents. ALL of them disqualified. As the ONLY candidate standing, he won.
Looks like Cain is looking for positive feedback to make his decision:
Seriously, what the hell is wrong with you?
Cain hasn’t been taken out. He is at a crossroads and needs to reach deep down inside for supernatural courage, and his family has to, also. I come from a military family, and we were taught only one response to adversity of any kind... plant your feet, lean into, BEAT IT BACK. May Herman do so...
We knew at the beginning, conservative values were going to be a threat to both the DNC and the RNC and things would get ugly. Well, here we are. Mr. Cain is a good, honorable man, and he does not in any way deserve what is being heaped upon his fine name and character. Every time I hear himn speak I’m renewed in my faith that he can provide the leadership our country needs right now. I can only imagine how tough this race is for him and his family, but I ask them to please stand firm, and, if they can, put their country first, and stay in the fight. If they do, I promise you, we will have their back.
Agreement with what you stated. I am heartbroken over this.
the media didn’t whackify Cain, he did it to himself.
I thought this was the party of “personal responsibility”?
When will Cain be responsible for Cain’s actions?
The hypocrisy is stupendous.
All you can do is bitch about Obama and propose ridiculous, doomsday solutions.
Thanks for letting us see who Debbie really supports.
The founders of the Tea Party Patriots, (Martin & Meckler) are shills for the establishment GOP and wouldn’t know a Conservative if he/she bit them in the butt.
Looks like Debbie is following in their footsteps.
2007 ABC News/Wash Post 09/27 - 09/30 Obama 20% Clinton 53% Clinton +33%
Send treats to the troops...
Great because you did it.
(An entirely free service)
Aren’t there various herd of cats organizations that all call themselves Tea Party?
Hang down your head Deb....Dooley.
Hang down your head and cry......
If Cain drops out because of this BS, it means NONE of our candidates have a shot at winning..the media will know they can get away with hiring people to make up crap about anyone and they know it will work..people have to stop acting like sheep, believing everything the media tells them, but unfortunately even though there is a HUGE percentage of people who say they distrust the media, they still believe everything the media tells them
Mr. Cain has taken responsibility for his actions.
No one can take responsibility for things they did not do.
Sorry, but I really don’t understand the continued support for Cain. He admits to paying another woman money without telling his wife. What more do you need to hear? Men do not give females who are not related money without expecting or getting something in return.
Even if you continue supporting his politics and are willing to ignore his foibles, the rest of the country won’t, so he can’t win.
This is no conspiracy, this is a liar who got caught. What’s really interesting is how long it took to catch him, even while running for president...under a microscope.
