I hate to see what was done to Palin, being done to Cain and then to anyone else until we have only Romney. We are almost to that point now. I had such high hopes for this election. Now, I'm not even sure our country will survive...
The silliness continues. You are comparing that to someone giving money to another woman over the course of years and not telling his wife?
Amen, NautiNurse! Excellent article by Dr. Alveda King... thanks for posting it.
It still escapes many of these blind Cain supporters, that it was just that one certain woman, who he gave money to and frequently visited for 13 years that charity was his only reward and motive.
By the way, Bridge for sale!.....
I'm so glad that there are so many here who automatically think the worst of people. (/sarc)
I'm of the opinion that Herman Cain, in many moments of Christian charity, gave money to lots of people in need, this woman being one. This act, being so frequent and ordinary to him, occupies a place in his memory that is not associated with guilt, so does not register as something to admit to when running for public office.
He now is in the position of having to remember the names, places, and dates of all of the people he may have helped out in the past. It is truly a sad comment on our society that true acts of charity can be twisted into veiled accusations of wrongdoing. Think of the Gary Cooper character in Mr. Deeds Goes to Town.
I agree with completely!
I want to make a specific point of NOT voting for this person when the primaries roll around to my state--just on the meritis of the way you have shoddily treated my and others' candidate here, Herman Cain, on this thread incessantly and elsewhere on Free Republic, under the ruse of "objectivity". The bottom line is that his candidacy offends some personal interest of yours in some way and I assume that is your support of another person and that perhaps your candidate cannot win on issues alone, but needs supporters like you to stoke the RINO fire of controversy and character asassination against candidate Cain. Please hurry and indicate your supported candidate so I can make note of that. Thanks again for your cooperation.
Thank you for that quick reply.
By the way, this bridge was only used on Sundays by little old ladies on the way to Church, was freshly painted and inspected every month and kept out of the rain. There is not even one speck of rust anywhere on it either.....Take my word for it......NOT ONE SPECK! (You can have it for the low, low price of $9,900,900.99!)
I’ll freely admit that I would vote for Cain in a heartbeat, and it doesn’t make what he did any less of a bonehead maneuver . . . and watching folks here dancing on the head of a pin is just plain amusing.
News flash, bucko - I was leaning towards Cain. Not sure who I lean towards now, I am in serious wait and see mode now.
And I am not quite sure how forming an opinion over an admission by Cain is treating him shoddily.
But go ahead, persist in your denial that this does not speak well of Cain and starts to allow doubt to creep in about his veracity.
(And you are permitted to infer that some form of documentation exists).
Most certainly an acknowledgement of an allegation can exist without any documentation of said allegation, so no, you cannot infer that documentation exists based solely on its acknowledgement, unless you are, in this case, considering the reporting of that acknowledgement by the media as the documentation, but I do not believe that is what you were trying to say.
I previously backed Cain on this issue, as the accuser has not produced any real evidence. But, I am concerned as, what at first was “a friend to my wife and myself,” is now “No, my wife did not know her, nor did she know I was giving money to this woman.” There seems to be, sadly, something to the accuser’s allegations. Otherwise, Herman would be thumping his chest and screaming. He seems a little quiet.
As to comments on Rove on the board, I agree. Why doesn’t he go hide in a closet, after the debacle he helped create under George W.? Why is he even booked as a guest? I would bet his poll numbers, as to trust and likeability are as low as Congress.
I would still vote for Cain if he was the nominee as well, and would prefer him over Newt and Romney, in that order. He just went down a big notch IMO as the best choice for anti-Romney. At this point, I really have no idea who is. So I guess I’ll see what goes down over the next 2-3 weeks and if anyone can pick up their game and offer a substantive challenge to Newt and Romney.
No, the question is how many documented cups of coffee did Cain buy for this woman.
Newt has also been out of Washington for over 15 years and is not really connected. But looking back, Newt was never ever really connected. It's why he received a 100% Conservative rating from the ACU during his time served in the House.
Nobody understands how to get this government back on it's feet faster or better than Newt, and I mean that from a Conservative perspective.
Saying that he was keeping secrets from his wife for charitable giving is silliness indeed unless you believe he was having a thirteen year affair including the year he was practically dead from fighting cancer.
If he was having the affair, then he was keeping secrets from Gloria. If he wasn't having the affair, he wasn't keeping secrets from her.
Personally, I think it's silliness to assume a known and documented liar and defamer is telling the truth with her only excuse for turning in her (admittedly kind, respectful and generous) alleged adulterous partner being that she felt sorry for how he treated the serial sue-ers who scored a year's salary each for their accusations and the totally non-credible Bialek (she's a joke). (You will notice that they evaporated the instant they faced legal opposition.)
It's worse than silliness IMO. It's BS!
Thanks, NN! Darn, I may not be around to see it live and to comment on FR at that time...
I couldn’t watch all the video, the guy was soooo boring. Too much lag between thought and word. Should have thought out what he wanted to say before making the video.
I can say though that my sil just went through stage 4 colorectal cancer and there’s no way she would have been able to have maintained an affair. She had chemo, then radiation, then surgery, then more chemo and then hyperbaric chamber.
Not to mention the various doctor’s appointments and the nurse that would stop by to check on the large wound left after surgery which needed a lot of care. She had this surgery about this time last year and just last week was told she no longer needed to pack the wound, just to make sure she cleaned it well during her shower and cover it to keep anything from getting into it, plus it still drains a bit.
I highly doubt that Cain would have maintained a sexual dalliance during this time. jmo
I stand with Mr. Cain!
