CBSnews.com - Hotsheet Live ^ | 12-02-11 | CBS News

Posted on 12/02/2011 10:23:37 PM PST by BagCamAddict

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."

Her comments when asked where they were meeting and how many, she keeps saying a couple of times and never has any specifics. She would be crushed in a deposition.

What is with the apology?

I wonder if Cain’s big announcement (with major supporters in attendance) could be that he intends to file a defamation suit(s) if he continues his campaign and therefore intends to ask them if/how they want to proceed. He’d need their money and support for any legal challenge. If they say “no more money,” then he must decide whether or not he can continue his campaign without clearing his name. Perhaps the reassessment is just that - a reassessment of his campaign options: move on with lawsuit, move on without lawsuit, suspend, or withdraw.

(No, I’m not a Cain supporter or a fan.)

What’s wrong with what Newt said in that clip? Due to Medicare the gov’t will be the largest purchaser of medical services. Therefore Medicare must be reformed -that’s what he was saying.

So why doesn’t Cain use Lin Wood to sue and ask for discovery?

No he does not need any money to go after media, press and radio... (deep pockets), an atty would do it on contingency, with a percentage, so lets say you sue for about $200,000,000, and the percent cut is 30%, the atty makes $60,000,000. Of course the amts will be lower from settlement but it is still worth it to do contingency.

A lawsuit opens plaintiff and defendants (and there will be multi-defendants) to what is called discovery and depositions. Cain would not want this kind of exposure during a campaign and the media turds know this so they libel him and they know he cannot sue while running.

17 of 70 texts came from White.
It appears that she was pestering Cain.

We don’t know the body of the texts.

meatloaf, I just went to Real Politics— It was before thankgiving by someone calling “The Polling Place” (R)- I can’t find it. I’ll keep looking. But, I’m sure- because as a Cain supporter, he had tanked and I was trying to find some fault in the data—so I went to the crosstabs—In that poll, he was winning sizable with the young folks- losing heavily 40-65 yr old; and killed 65 and over.

But, as I say, I’ll keep checking.

According to Wood from the CNN interview

‘There is not one fact to support that Cain was continuously texting White’

numbers from Wood

Cain responded to 17 texts over a 4 week period
White sent 57 texts over a 4 week period

So Cain responded on average to 4 texts a week.

I don’t trust the media either, but I do question why Mr Cain failed to share this matter with his wife if it was so innocent.

I also question why it takes him so long to respond to these bimbo eruptions.

Beyond all that I question why he trys to blame these matters on others.

Y'all kill me with this one.

The bimbo eruption happened on November 28.

Today is/was December 2.

It has been FIVE DAYS. Good grief. "So long to respond"??

Exactly how long do you think it should take to involve your lawyer, have his team of investigators find out everything there is to know about this libeling woman, and put together your strategy for counteracting the smear campaign, meet with your family, meet with your top campaign supporters, continue with your previously-scheduled campaign committments, eat, sleep, shower...

Seriously. "So long to respond" ????

Whatever.

He is going to go scorched earth on them for their attacks, and stay in the race. All indications are of this. The RINO talk radio show hosts better get used to the concept that Herman Cain is going to be around and his supporters are now going to raise all kinds of payback hell (primarily against the Obama/Axelrod Machine) which engineered these smears and anyone else who had a hand in spreading it or amplifying it.

That is why, no matter what he does, for his sake and the sake of all Republican candidates from here until eternity, he has the unique chance tomorrow to finish off the media and their double standard, and I hope he is up for it.

Slam them, Mr. Cain! They ignored to the point of ridiculousness the stories about Edwards and his pregnant campaign staffer, until the Enquirer outed him visiting his freaking BABY! They IGNORED this story that happened on the campaign trail! And Edwards’s wife was suffering from terminal cancer!!! That was not newsworthy but this thing is top story material??

Please, whatever you decide tomorrow, speak out about the double standard!

I had JUST (at the doctors office) now the exact same idea. That Herman Cain needs a good pysop play here: he needs to fake them out with disinfo, get them all pumped up that he is going to do one thing and they will blab it all over the place, and then do precisely the opposite, with HER also coming to the podium in support. It will be unavoidable as a news item and White House and other lib smear machine heads will politically explode (figuratively speaking here). RINOs will be none too happy about it either, and it could bring back a sizeable portion of the base that was “fair weather friend” and temporarily took a walk. If he does not stay this course, NO WAY would I ever endorse any other GOP candidate if I had credible information that they were the source or help pump it up after the White House let the timed allegations loose.

It’ going to come down to whether or not he has lost financial support.


Well, he has! Who is going to donate when you hear your candidate might be quitting?? I have a bad taste in my mouth (and several Fred hats!!) from all my donations to Thompson in 2008!

However, the moment he says the Cain Train continues, I have some more for him and I am not alone. His donations will go through the roof tomorrow if he has the nerve to go forward.

If Cain comes out and says I am not going to be like all other Pubs who run like scared rabbits every time the Dem Machine tightens the screws-— he will be a hero to conservatives.

And finally, if he does, that’s why he deserves to be President. He may be lacking in many things— but this steel backbone would demonstrate exactly why he became as successful as he is-—

Now, all he has to do is stay in it. -:)


I like this. It deserves repeating.
