Skip to comments.Here's Hoping Herman Cain Will Stay In the Race

In the 15th Century, Lady Justice was introduced wearing a blindfold. Her sightlessness was meant to represent objectivity, in that justice is or should be meted out without fear or favor, regardless of identity, money, power or weakness. Blind justice and impartiality should be the goal.
Suddenly, while Mr. Cain is soaring at the top of the polls, proposing to scrap our three million word tax code for a simpler, fairer, pro-growth 9-9-9 plan (getting rid of the tax code would arguably be the largest transfer of power from the government to the people since the U.S. Constitution was ratified. No wonder the establishment resists such an agent of change) he is besieged by the media, suffering death of a thousand cuts, as described by Cain Senior Adviser, Niger Innis.
For six unrelenting weeks, Mr. Cain has been the target of attacks on his character. His accusers have yet to prove anything, yet the man has been judged guilty in the court of public opinion without even a semblance of a fair trial.
We the people must demand a more just political process. If someone is going to talk about another persons character, they must have irrefutable proof and not just their word. The people should demand this and so should the media. A political campaign should address the many troubling issues facing the nation and not have to waste its resources defending meaningless allegations.
We must demand that the media reports on the issues, and let us see the platforms of the candidates. In the face of these attacks, on Mr. Cain and other presidential hopefuls, Im inclined to find that Tabloid Justice is indeed blind, but far from objective.

AMEN! THANK YOU!
While Republicans search for the Apostle/Jesus candidate, Satan/Obama is digging in.
We look for messiahs then destroy them.
No mortal human is sinless.
Insisting on a perfect candidate to defeat Obama is like waiting for a cruise ship instead of a rowboat while you’re drowning.
Perfection or death. Choose.
I hope he stays in. He’ll have my vote.
...and I agreed to that.
You're the one who first used the term "documented" and made a big point of using it. That is what I called you on.
So yes, you can . . . especially when the payments occurred over the space of thirteen years.
And even if Cain left no paper trail, the existence of documentation is irrelevant because he ADMITS doing it. They are no longer alleged payments. That was the comment that brought me to this thread.
That, and the tortured definition of alms-giving.
Thank you! You said very efficiently and clearly what I was flailing around to express. It seems so obvious.
Sadly, you’re leaving out some documented facts. You don’t give your personal cell number to every person you donate money to, and you certainly don’t return a text message to them at 4 am. I like Cain, but he has some “esplainin’ to do.”
Ok, so change "documented" to "admitted." Now go after the guy who used "alleged" with the same fervor. Because he was incorrect by an order of magnitude worse.
You can choose to rationalize away the significance of such. I don't. I doubt one woman in 100 would accept their husband hiding such support to another woman from them, no matter what the underlying motive. All it would take is Cain telling her that it was happening. And Cain didn't say such.
If I recall correctly that person is divorced. If I’m wrong they can clear it up. OMG, maybe she left him because he gave money to someone without asking her permission and that is why he sees this as a marriage breaker! ;) /s
There's that word again. You are really in for it, now.
If I tried to pull that stunt with any of the women I was thinking of marrying, you'd be hearing gunshots. This ain't France (except on this thread).
I am married, my second marriage. My first marriage was very short-lived and would have been annulled by the Catholic Church without much of a fight. I’ll leave the details at that.
LOL. Guess you really don't like word games all that much, now do you?
Oh, I’m still here. Have you looked up the definition of “alleged,” yet? I thought your heart was in it.
Thanks for the warning. I welcome correction, but in this instance, I don’t believe Cain has admitted to the fact that this woman had his personal cell phone number, or about the 4am texting. However, I believe members of the media who have seen the cellphone/text records have vouched for this..i.e.documented. I haven’t followed this as closely as some, so, stand to be corrected.
What did Cain receive for alleged 'payment'?Is the above statement true or false, bearing in mind that Cain has admitted to making payments?
Of course it doesn't. Unfortunately his acknowledgment of the "donations" is going to make it really tough for him to rebound.
It is grossly unfair, but I always thought Palin could have rebounded and overcome the nasty MSM smears had she run, at this point I have less confidence in Cain to do so.
They are going to go after Newt hard now that he is the front runner.
That sounds like a lie on his part, but the only place I've seen the statement that the woman was a friend of Gloria's as well was a statement from someone who claimed to have been in on a conference call where Cain said that. This was posted here on FR.
Later I saw a transcript of that call and it did NOT include a statement that the woman was a friend of Gloria's too. Now it's possible Cain said it somewhere else that I don't know about, but if you're relying on that conference call report, Cain didn't say it there. Unless of course you think the transcript was altered.
It just bothers me so much that it's so easy to jump on stuff that later turns out not to be accurate. I include myself in that as well. I used to trust things that FReepers reported on, but having gone through the last couple months, not so much anymore. Some of it is honest mistakes or misunderstandings I'm sure, but some of it isn't that innocent. (That's not aimed at you.)
Indeed. Makes you wonder how these types will never just believe anything from the MSM except when it could suit their arguments, whether it's true what the MSM says or not.
I call these types "cafeteria conservatives", who pick and choose what they want to believe.
25 years ago, we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope.
If you can't appreciate the pure beauty of the violin after hearing this, something's wrong with your ears.
Or you can get raw with these strings. Either way, the violin is sweet yet lethal.
Helping someone out over the course of 13 years just might mean that he said call me if you need help. Its possible.
