Video of Cain at Campaign Stop in South Carolina on Friday, talking about tomorrow's announcement
"Tomorrow, in Atlanta, I will be making an announcement. But nobody's going to get me to make that prematurely. So tomorrow, we will be opening our headquarters in northwest Georgia, where we will also clarify exactly what the next steps are."

He is going to go scorched earth on them for their attacks, and stay in the race.
From your lips to Gd’s ears. I was so SURE that Sarah would run that now I doubt my political predictive ability.
Yes. FIrst clearing any family hurdles, this is for sure the BEST PLAN OF ACTION at this stage of the game. Always turn negatives into stark positives. He did it before with four other bimbo eruptions (lies), and he can do it again I am sure. Hope he does it. Hope he can pull it off. He has been through hell as a seasoned businessman through the years on a host of things, so I am sure he has some out of the box thinking up his sleeve. We shall soon see.
I say it with 80 to 90% certainty.
But how certain were you about Sarah running?
I believe the bimbo eruptions have been going on longer than 5 days.
The Ginger White deal has been this past week.
He admits that the relationship is there, he admits the payments where there, he admits that he didn’t tell his wife, and he remains defiant.
Good luck with that.
Not certain at all (she would run). From way back. Months ago. Posted as much on FR.
He claimed in the last interview that “Most” of the accusations weren’t true, He said that repeatedly.
I smell zot
This is a Cain thread. Go back to the Perry threads and talk to yourself.
Perhaps Cain just doesn’t know how to parse his words.
But it looks bleak.
There are two points:
1) is it possible Herman is telling the truth? That he had no sexual relations with that woman, Miss White?
Either way, he can make it through this by being honest with us, no details, just admitting he caused pain, or fighting the false charges.
2) it shouldn’t matter whatever happened between Cain and any woman, if it doesn’t matter what happened between Clinton and another woman, or Obama and another man. Edwards too. If candidates and presidents with Ds next to their names can fool around, the MSM can’t excoriate the Rs that might also be weak in the flesh.
I mean, Cain didn’t rape anyone, he didn’t have gay sex in a limo, and he didn’t knock up any of his campaign workers. And all of those acts are just fine with the media. So there is nothing to see here!
Did I hit a nerve?
Wow. I believe you... I remember there were people who seemed sure she wouldn’t, including my husband. I was sure she would. Especially after the Iowa video. I would have bet $1000 on it. She sucked the air out of my lungs when she didn’t.
Apparently you have a cheating spouse. You are taking this kinda personal as if it happened to you.
Or you live in a cave and or broke and have no idea what people do with their money.
If there is ANY truth to this stuff he is toast.
Ha has wrapped himself in sanctimony.
It felt bleak when KFI radio about an hour ago announced that some of the in insiders said they think he will close up shop tomorrow.
I hope he doesn’t.
Herman is on the stage, Not me.
In insiders = Cain insiders
I don’t know what he will do.
He is a capable fellow, but he has a big problem on his hands.
That kind of got me, on Hannity yesterday. His denials were specific and vehement. I figured, he being a bold leader type and human nature being what it is, that he must have dsallied with her at least once, way back when. But he was swearing up and down he had not. I was ready to ignore those failings and press on with him.
People would still support Clinton or Kennedy or anyone else known to be a playah. And it’s not like we have a choice of a conservative who hasn’t cheated. — perry might be a faithful husband but I’m not seeing him beat Obama.
But herman was so vehement on Sean that I wonder f maybe he didn’t do it. But in the long run it doesn’t matter; I’d still prefer an unfaithful Cain to an unfaithful newt or Barack, or a faithful mitt.
I prefer a faithful Perry.
He has shown me his tenacity over and over on states vs federal rights, but has shown me that he is willing to listen to the constituents when we have differences at the local level.
These guys have mismanaged Cain, over and over again, from how NOT to do crisis management, to how to take a charismatic mathematician and successful businessman and make him look foolish.
Seriously, look at how these guys have screwed up with him. They have him running ragged with no rest doing interviews, and when he gets tired, they keep him going in front of cameras where he can flub......Try doing a media interview with a hostile press, on just a few hours of sleep, and see how well you look.
They totally botched tutoring him on foreign affairs, and its not like he lacks the capacity to learn and command it, the guy has judgement, he has shown an amazing ability to learn the complex, command it, and communicate it, so shorting him on it is pretty darn foolish.
He is a former baptist minister running as a conservative, and he flubs answers on abortion ? Who the hell is coaching him ? Rich Kotite ? (former jets head coach).
He gets accused of sexual harassment, and they have no idea how to respond, hell, its not even the Cain campaign thats finding out that these women are B.S. artists, its other conservatives, and hell even the liberal media.
My only real gripe is that, maybe he doesn't have great judgement in hiring people, and thats a very legit concern.
Please keep in mind, I'm not even on the Cain "train" or a Cain supporter, and I can see the issues here.
Maybe Cain aint all that.
The timing to take Cain down was executed with military precision. He can certainly stay but at this date it is hard to imagine where he is going to grow his support from.
Hang in there.
Why do you care, your posts are pointless.
This is the director for Cain in Iowa - he is running the ground game
sgrubbs Steve Grubbs
To Cainiacs: any news reports of HC “suspending” campaign is pure speculation. No one will know until tomorrow. Rest easy tonight.

The point of my posts is that we have passed over a fine candidate due to some stuttering stuff.
Perry’s record is excellent despite the flashpoints.
Cain has no record, and he has major flashpoints
However, the moment he says the Cain Train continues, I have some more for him and I am not alone.
Exactly. I’ve been contributing monthly. Waiting on Cain now before the next one.
Ok, so why don’t you make your case. Be proud of who you support.
Perry is not well it is obvious, he needs to get treatment for his back ASAP and pain management. He may be getting treatment now but it is not working.
He is making mistakes on some facts that I know he knows the correct answer to.
And your wish may come true tomorrow, on Cain, however there are plenty of options for Cain...it will not be the end by any means....The folks that are still with Cain will not be going to the other candidates, there are other plans in the works...
This BS of giving Newt a pass and Mitt a pass is getting old.
Someone will capitalize on it.
yeah, it will be Obama.
Tea Party Candidate?
I agree 100%
But it was Okay when Newt did it right?
I share your concerns, but I think any of our candidates could kick Obama squaw in the nuts, and give him a fist to the nose.
It’s interesting (and sad) that the Christians on FR care more about “winning” than they do about the Truth.
Newt has a problem.
Cain and Gingrich getting in bed is a problem.
It sounds as if he isn’t grounded.
Duh, we know most newt supporters are takers not givers. But try to understand the man is a lay preacher, the sort of man that believes in helping people in need.
I just watched the video, and yes it is awesome!! My hope is that Mr. Cain stays in the race. (Thanks for posting the youtube video!)
“...the moment he says the Cain Train continues, I have some more for him and I am not alone.”
Exactly right! He also gets my down-on-the-knees prayers.
It is definitely not the media he is suckering-—keep those donations coming because I need travel expenses to my next rally/book signing.
What makes you think he was hiding it? When I was married I gave money to people quite frequently, they were supposed to be loans but I knew I would never get the money back. Some of the people were women and many were repeat loans. I never bothered to tell my wife because it was from my "walking around" money and we didn't bother to explain to each other what we did with it. Plus, I just didn't think it was necessary to tell every little thing I did, nor did I expect her to tell me.
Not telling his wife doesn't mean he "hid" it from her, it simply means he didn't think it was important enough to tell her.
Why do you still perpetuate something that you hear and throw Cain under the bus? He talked with Gloria, she forgave him. He did nothing. Do you have proof otherwise or do you have your head so far up your candidates A$$ that you can’t see reality?
Now that would be a genius move. It would shut up Newtie. (I will be the nominee.
He would regain my support. He just might anyway.
I just get sick thinking of Newtie or Mitsie.

Will you hold yourself to that same standard the next time you show up on a Newt thread spreading hate and vile?
Do you realize how ignorant this "explanation" looks? On one hand, you say how dynamic, intelligent and successful Cain is, and then complain that it is the people he has chosen to manage his campaign that are to blame for all of this controversy.
It's typical for even Cain to blame the MSM and his staff for being a “victim”. Which is my whole point. How will we expect him to perform in the highest office on the Planet, when he cannot even pick competent advisers to run his campaign ahead of time?
It pretty much proves that he will be just as incompetent and inept as President. Secondly, the fact that Cain is in complete denial that he may have done anything, and that he won't admit to any part in it. Especially, after first saying none of this happened, and 2 days later, admits that he did make payments to the woman and did see her regularly.
The public won't buy it and Cain is done. Period.
“Really goodInteresting, about a week ago a poll came out showing Newt taking the lead and Cain falling back but among 18-29 yr old, Cain led them all 36%- the next guy was down in the single digits. Maybe youngsters are his group?”
Have you seen the ‘leaked ad’ series?
That may be why he’s doing well with young people.
Number four is 23 seconds of hilarious awesomeness.
Unfortunately, some of our government school educated young people may only have a 23 second attention span - so maybe that explains that good news.
