Cain "reassessing."

"We have to do an assessment as to whether or not this is going to create too much of a cloud, in some people’s minds, as to whether or not they would be able to support us going forth...."
It’s also taken a toll on my wife and family, as you would imagine... Any time you put another cloud of doubt, unfortunately, in the court of public opinion, for some people, you’re guilty until proven innocent. And so, the public will have to decide whether they believe her or whether they believe me. That’s why we’re going to give it time, to see what type of response we get from our supporters.
IN THE COMMENTS: mccullough has a theory:
I'm guessing that Cain asked this woman to come forward and tell about their affair so he could have an excuse to get out of the race.

He never had any serious intention of being President.

There was never anything he did or said during this entire campaign that should have made people take him seriously.

Too bad. I was going to suggest that this be turned into an "I am Spartacus" moment!

Wouldn't that be great? Thousands of people standing up and saying; "I had sex with Herman Cain!". How you gonna prove who's lying?

I don't blame Herman but society:

You can have 100 women lined up against him but, without proof, they're liars.

In a decent society, with it's priorities straight, they'd be the ones under the gun,...

And, if not true, what they're doing to that poor man's wife, mentally, is criminal. Not to mention how they're twisting a decent man's view of his country.

If there's a God, he'd be running a hot poker through the lot of 'em,...

I would not have voted for Cain in a primary.

That said, he's a Black Republican, and they obviously must be destroyed.

Mary Beth said...

Once upon a time, if a woman admitted to an affair, it was probably true since admitting such would have been shameful. Now it's just a way to become a 15 minute celebrity so who knows what's true or not.

Oh Jesus.

mccullough said...

Crack,

What the women say is proof. Cain's denial is proof. Maybe they are lying, maybe he is telling the truth, maybe a bit of both. Who knows. Corroborating evidence by the women would go a long way. The allegations of sexual harrasment were made at the time and settled by the employer. Maybe they were b.s., who knows.

I don't find any of the allegations about sexual harrassment or allegations about Cain's hitting on some women or having an affair disqualifying, even if true. Herman Cain seems to be sort of like Bill Clinton, and his platform is not about family values, etc., which is beyond the ability, much less the authority, of the POTUS to tackle.

That said, Cain's wilful refusal to brush up on important issues and his obvious winging it on them leaves me to believe he was not serious about becoming POTUS and I'm sure his family thought it would never go this far. They certainly didn't want to be part of the process. And if Cain's a philanderer, then his wife probably knows about it.

If he quits, he's looking for an exit. But he should not whine on the way out that he is a victim. He is not a victim.

J said...

Cain has no more business running for President than any KC pizza joint manager does.

Hoosier Daddy said...

"... You can have 100 women lined up against him but, without proof, they're liars..."

Hell, I'd admit it. What's the shame in it? Babes are hot for me and all this monogomy is a silly social construct. The Lord said go forth and multiply and I took him at his word.

Who'd you rather want leading the country? Super.Shagger Cain or President Mom Pants?

Rialby said...

Better that he get out now than stay in the race through the primary and take away votes from one candidate so that another candidate ends up in the White House because the press refused to actually investigate the details of the alleged affair.

But that would never happen.

On the other hand Obama has been completely faithful to Reggie Love. His "body man." Right out in the open. Michelle knows. The MSM know. But everyone's copacetic with it. Because of the mission. The mission comes first. To fundamentally change America. What's not to love with our vicious vindictive president?

"That’s why we’re going to give it time, to see what type of response we get from our supporters."

His supporters are bailing. It's a done deal.

Levi Starks said...

While it's true that I don't think Cain could win, the underlying story to me seems that it's important to make sure any conservative black man who aspires to political greatness knows what's in store for him.
As if the Clarence Thomas episode hadn't already taught us. And of course that the Left will enforce the Right's morality standard on it's candidates even if the Right is willing to look the other way.

Fen said...

Two problems for Cain:

1) Even I have lost track of the ratio of accusers:frauds. Yes, some of the women's stories seem fishy, but in the end all anyone remembers is that Cain is associated with something seedy.

2) More importantly, lets ignore the Lefty and MSM hypocrisy, Cain did not handle this "crisis" very well. And the POTUS has alot on his plate - our economy, illegal immigration out of control, a corrupt Justice Dept that needs to be entirely replaced, Obamacare repeal, Iranian launches against Israel, Paki nukes (or Jihadi nukes, if Obama continues to frack AfPak up), the Euro-crisis, etc.

Peter Hoh said...

Dude, the correct response is this:

There’s no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate.

WV: doright

Mike_K said...

I would stick with him except for all the policy flubs.

MnMark said...

I think the real problem for Herman Cain is that he's beginning to realize that if he was actually elected President he might have to put all of his extramarital affairs with white women on hold. That's asking just a little too much of a successful black man.

Seven Machos said...

Just so you guys know, Mark also wants to forcibly rid the country of all illegal aliens at any price in addition to being a racist cunt.

CJinPA said...

Back to the motivational speaking circuit.

The question is: When does he become a media-friendly critic of the GOP? Seems like the best way to generate interest down the road.

Revenant said...

The major problem for Cain isn't the bimbo eruptions. The major problem for Cain is that when you actually try to get specifics out of him it rapidly becomes apparently that he has no idea what he's talking about.

His heart's in the right place, but that isn't enough.

write_effort said...

How does General Powell fit into the "destroy the conservative Black man" meme?

MnMark said...

Thank you, it's true I do want the illegal aliens to leave...though you're lying when you say "forcibly". I advocate a program of targeted financial incentives to punish employers for hiring them and to reward citizens for reporting the lawbreakers and to reward government agencies for doing their job and catching them.

Financial incentives are the farthest thing from "forcible". The fact that you have to engage in such hyperbole shows how effective the idea really would be...it scares you. They might actually leave! And then who would vote with the fringe white progressives and defeat the traditional white American men who want the country to remain white and American?

MnMark said...

The major problem for Cain is that when you actually try to get specifics out of him it rapidly becomes apparently that he has no idea what he's talking about.

Cain is a good example of the kind of black person who gets ahead in this country. We've all known a few at our workplaces. They learn a few catchphrases and repeat them over and over ("My nine-nine-nine plan!") thinking that style and flash and a few catchphrases substitute for actual knowledge. Their grasp of the issues is thin, however, and after a certain point that becomes obvious. We're not supposed to notice it though...that would be racist.

Seven Machos said...

Should black people and other minorities be denied due process like you want illegal aliens to be denied due process, Mark?

CJinPA said...

"How does General Powell fit into the "destroy the conservative Black man" meme?"

He was never conservative. In fact, the media embraced him after he began dissing the GOP. Which is the road I think Cain will go down, unfortuately.

Not that I totally buy into the "destroy black conservatives" theory. Just that Powell was not conservative.

MnMark said...

How does General Powell fit into the "destroy the conservative Black man" meme?

General Powell is not conservative.

Methadras said...

It's not that Cain is ready to be president, because he just isn't. I see that now, not because I think he is a sexual harasser or an adulterer, but because he is not going to triangulate his response based on public opinion. That is something he has said he wouldn't do and now he is. So long Herman, you're a good guy, but this isn't for you. And once again, the process works like its supposed to.

Seven Machos said...

We're not supposed to notice it though...that would be racist.

You are doing just fine on your racism. Good work! Fabulous racism.

Also racist is lumping black people together in a hilariously ridiculous way. That is, in fact, the definition of racism.

Wow, that's a powerful ad hominem argument you've got going there. I mean, calling me a "racist cunt" - two really bad words! Heck those are probably the two most baddest words a liberal can even say! Gosh, I am so chastened! I'm going to need to reevaluate the validity of my arguments because after all, a guy on the internet just called me two very bad words!

Coketown said...

Cain's only political future is with a third party--a third party called the Pizza Party. The slogan could be: "Election Day Pizza Party. Are you in?" How inclusive! I'm so in. Except I think Obama is already using the "Are you in?" line, so that might be problematic.

Our choice now is between Newt, who has had multiple post-marital affairs (is that more respectable than extra-marital affairs?), and Romney, who is too androgynous and sterile to have affairs. It's a miracle he's married at all.

Lord. Can we stop voting on our candidates' sex lives? It's creeping me out.

MnMark said...

How about if we just choose candidates who are married and faithful and don't have character issues?

Wouldn't that be better than surrendering and accepting lower and lower standards of behavior in a candidate for the highest office?

Seven Machos said...

The fact that you think someone is a liberal because he tells you that you are a racist cunt speaks volumes about your shallowness, Mark.

Good luck deportin' those illegals. And try not to look the black people directly in the eye.

MnMark said...

You are quite the hysteric.

My two observations are quite unremarkable.

That successful black men seem to have a predilection for white women.

And that it is common for blacks to "fake it" and get away with it in their jobs. Every white adult with much job experience has run into the type, whether they are honest enough to admit it or not.

But for some reason it infuriates you for someone to mention those things.

jimspice said...

Oh my God. This is too funny. Herman Cain as the literal Manchurian Candidate. And those evil Kochs would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for dudes like Jim who saw through the ruse.

You really that behavior is unique to folks with darker skin color?

'cause I've seen all kinds of white, yellow, brown, red, and even purple-colored people behave in the same manner as that which you described.

Seven Machos said...

Mark -- Your observations lumping black people together are exactly what make you a racist cunt.

Why can't racists accept their racism? Be what you are. Wail with it, dude!

Seven Machos said...

No, Penguin. It's just black people. But Mark isn't a racist. No sir!

MnMark said...

No, I didn't say "unique" did I?

I said he was a good example of that kind.

I didn't say that there are no examples of that behavior in other races.

Arthur Thistlepimp said...

Exit, stage thataway!

MnMark said...

Oh I absolutely stand by my belief that it is more common for blacks to behave that way than whites.

But it would be stupid to try to argue that ALL blacks are that way and ALL whites aren't.

These behaviors probably exist along a normal distribution. A percentage of every race behaves like that.

It's just that the percentage of blacks who behave like that is larger than the percentage of whites. Can I cite a study to prove that? No. It's my impression, that's all. Just based on what I've seen.

Seven Machos said...

It's my impression, that's all. Just based on what I've seen.

So your observations cannot be racist. Alrighty, then. Racist.

Scott M said...

Just based on what I've seen.

So you're suggesting, as a race, whites keep it in their pants better?

Seven Machos said...

It's not racist to suggest that black people tend to be serial adulterers or chase after women of other "races," whatever those are.

At what point, Mark, do you become a racist?

MnMark said...

So you're suggesting, as a race, whites keep it in their pants better?

I was commenting on blacks' greater tendency to try to 'fake it' in the work and professional space.

But given the very high black illegitimacy rate - near 80% - compared to whites, and given the very high rate of sexually transmitted disease among blacks compared to other races, well, yeah whites probably do keep it in their pants better.

Tell me honestly that you were surprised to find out that Herman Cain, a successful black man, had been cheating on his black wife with a series of white women. That's one of the oldest stereotypes around.

MnMark said...

I guess I become a racist when someone like you calls me one.

I really don't care about the label. I gave up caring about being called a racist by liberals a long time ago. It's what they all resort to when they can't address the substance of the arguments.

"Racist" has several meanings, too.

If it means I notice that blacks have some very negative tendencies as a group, then I guess I'm "guilty". But those are the facts.

I don't make 80% of black babies illegitimate.

I don't make blacks 6.0 times as likely to be arrested for murder as white people. Or four times as likely to commit rape or sexual assault. Those are just facts.

If calling them to attention makes me "racist", then so be it.

You mean like his support for Affirmative Action, his support for Gun Control, his support for forced student “volunteerism”, you mean his betrayal of “Scooter” Libby, made him a Good Republican Conservative….Powell was NOT a Conservative, and since 2008 can barely be considered a Republican.

Joe said...

(The Uncredentialed, Crypto Jew)

Former Republican candidate Sean Bielat tells National Review Online he’s “certainly thinking pretty hard” about another run for Congress. Last year, Bielat waged an aggressive campaign against Rep. Barney Frank (D.) in Massachusetts’s 4th Congressional District. Although Frank won by a 54–43 margin, it was his closest race in years. And now that the state legislature has redrawn the district, the potential for a Republican victory is even greater.
“If you look at the map, without knowing anything about Massachusetts, you can tell it’s not gerrymandered the way the old one was. The old one looked like a snake,” Bielat jokes.
The possible candidate says he will make a decision “in the next few weeks” after consulting with his wife, who gave birth to their second child only two weeks ago. (They had their first child during the 2010 campaign.) “We want either to decide we are in and jump right in, or to decide we’re not and support whoever’s out there

No mention, of course, of the others here calling him out for holding that opinion. I'd call it willful ignorance, but that would imply higher cognitive faculties than you possess, Jolly.

On the subject of racist BS, J's position is that the Jews run 75% of the banking/financial companies in this country. Since you're the expert, J, how much Jew blood does one have to have to be part of that 75%? A drop? A pint? A second-cousin, twice removed?

Further, openly endorsing and voting for Obama is more than saying something nice, idiot.

You really are a stupid fock, JoeJoe Kissinger. You mean Scooter Libby, the shyster who routinely lied under oath--serious felonies-- for his man Cheney, who should have been in prison for at least 10 years? That guy? Gen Powell did the right thing at least in that case.

I don't buy that; if he just wanted any old excuse to drop out, he already had the perfect excuse before the adultery story broke: he could have said the harassment charges had been too hard on his family.

garage mahal said...

What is hilarious about your comment dumbass, is you asserted it wasn't possible Frank was retiring because he was afraid of losing.

This is one of Jaytard's sleezeball intentional mashing of the facts. In other words, a fucking liar.

Here is what I posted in the Barney Frank thread:


You tell us sorepaw, mindreader.

Who was Frank going to lose to?

I said it's impossible to know why Obey retired. Just like when a Republican retires, or opts out running for a position, it would be impossible for me to know.

Yes. Plenty of R's have retired, no?

In Frank's situation, in particular, Garage, it doesn't matter why he's getting out. The amount of damage he did will still be taught in civics history classes decades from now.

Six to be exact, SEVENTEEN DEMOCRATS….gee, oh gee why the disparity, do you think?

You don’t actually do “facts” before you post do you Garage? You just wing it, and throw it out there, hoping, correct?

Anyway, “Do you want fries with that” calls….

mccullough said...

JAC,

The harrassment charges were before his god-awful interview with the MJ editorial board and the last debate or two. Cain didn't want to bother to brush up on a lot of the major issues. He started a campaign to raise his profile and push his economic views. He was very successful with that, beyond his wildest dreams probably.

But he's at that point now where substantively he needs to show dramatic improvement. He's dropped some points in the polls, but nothing he couldn't make up if he hit the books. He doesn't want to hit the books because he doesn't want to be President. And if he stays in the race any longer he will start to embarrass himself more on the issues. So better to drop out now and blame it on the high-tech out to get conservative lynching than to fess up that this was largely a publicity push.
Expect Gingrich to start doing the same thing because there is no way he has the discipline to be President and he knows it. Gingrich has been running to promote himself and his books. He also has more than accomplished his goals. Mission Accomplished for Cain, now a good exit strategy.

garage mahal said...

Anyway, “Do you want fries with that” calls….

You better get on that then.

Bob Ellison said...

JAC is right on the too-clever-by-half conjecture.

Running for POTUS is a big deal, as our current VP, if he were less foul-mouthed, might say. Cain is trying it, and will probably bow out. Cain isn't sufficiently prepared for the opposition.

Seven Machos said...

Cain isn't sufficiently prepared for the opposition.

Those last three words are superfluous.

mccullough said...

Bob E.,

If Cain or Gingrich took running for President seriously, they would have strong staff in the early primary states, as well as some operations up and running in major primary states. They are campaigning almost exclusively through televised debates and media interviews. This is not a calculated strategy. This is winging it. Cain is starting to embarrass himself with conservatives and he knows it is time to go.

Levi - "And of course that the Left will enforce the Right's morality standard on it's candidates even if the Right is willing to look the other way."

==============

The dimbulbs of the religious right came up with "morality" litmus tests that few candidates meet. Naturally the Left likes to point out how the dimbulbs made it hard for many to run as Republicans.
Of course, the Right enjoys laughing at people on the Left that want to ignore their own transgressors.
The feminists made clowns out of themselves as they fell on their swords one after another to defend Clinton - betraying all their supposed high principles. That laughter from the Right stuck on them.

Bob Ellison said...

mccullough, we're getting a little inside baseball here, but I think you misread (present tense) political history. If the most obvious candidate always got the nomination, we'd have a very different history. Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and even Barack Obama ran unusual campaigns of the sort that pundits of the time would say, at the time, will not work. But they got elected.

Let me be blunt. You obviously dislike Cain deeply. Come, let it out. The release will help you.

Seven Machos said...

I want to know about these Zionist rackets. Are they Wilson rackets? Prince?

Cedarford said...

Lately 7-Machos has gone from licking the boots of the Israelis he sees himself as serving to a series of smug, self-righteous rants accusing anyone who disagrees with him on immigration or certain black pathologies he denies existing.

Quite a few posts from 7 Machos screaming how people are racists or bigots for wanting illegals deported or condemning black crime & affirmative action.

To think, only a few months ago, 7 confined himself to screaming how anyone that disagreed with doing what Israel wanted America to do - was an anti-Semite.

7 Machos is branching out!

Seven Machos said...

Seven Machos said...

On to something more substantive, why is it that people automatically charge hatred of a candidate -- like you do, Bob -- when people call that candidate unqualified, or unprepared, or wrong on an issue, or whatever.

You realize, don't you, that this is abjectly making the political into the personal? You have accepted the worst tropes of leftist thought and you don't even realize it.

Yes C4---say something slightly negative about Israelis and the A-house jotos think you're quoting Hitler. How the log cabin GOP operates.

mccullough said...

Bob E.,

I don't dislike Cain, but he's a limited candidate and does not want to educate himself on some important issues (defense and foreign policy the most glaring ones). I don't care about his personal life or his sex drive, etc. and for what it's worth, making sexual advances that are rebuffed isn't a crime or a tort, so I don't have any moral qualms about Cain.

But he is not running a different campaign, he is winging it. He does not want to be President and it shows. He likes the limelight and wants to highlight the ideas he is interested in, and I don't blame him for it.

None of those other candidates -- Nixon, Reagan, Clinton, or Obama -- were winging it, and all of them were serious about wanting to be POTUS. Cain and Gingrich aren't. I doubt Santorum or Bachmann are either. That leaves, in alphabetical order, Huntsman, Paul, Perry, and Romney as people who are serious about their candidacy.

Coketown said...

I think Cain is suffering Class President Syndrome, which is somewhat related to mccullough's theory. The office Cain thought he was running for is very different from the office he's actually running for. He thought he could run an absurd campaign with strange ads and an over-the-top autobiography, similar to how candidates for class president run goofy campaigns with promises of soda machines in the bathroom and renegotiated tardy policies with the principal. But then reality sinks in: the office isn't nearly so glamorous, the process is banal and bureaucratic, and you have far less power than you hoped once elected.

Honestly, I think Obama is suffering from the same syndrome.

Cedarford said...

There is something sadly funny about the desperation of conservatives to find a credible True Believer.


So desperate that they will try and make the latest non-Romney - Gingrich - into someone who isn't 100% Pure Corrupt multi-millionaire DC Insider Establishment Tool that Newt is, who somehow did not shred "conservative family values" at every opportunity in his personal life, who didn't have a plethora of Big Government social engineering ideas he pushed for 20 years.

Or so much baggage Hillary would call Tiffany's and complain Newt had lots more than she did.


With Cain at deaths door, they have fucking Newt left to pretend Newt isn't who he really is...try and delude themselves he is "Another Reagan".

Do they really have a Death Wish? To rebrand the Republicans as the Party of Stupid? Where Newt is the family values icon and ignorance is deemed to be a mark of authenticity, high character, and a rejection of what them thar college educated Elitists say?

Love to ask each and everyone of them : Are you serious? Do you really want 4 more years of Obama?

Spread Eagle said...

So you can't answer the question, then, right, E-grade? You throw out spurious percentages and present them as empirical, but fail, repeatedly, to back up the data involved.

Let me catch up;

1. I believe this woman.

2. Powell is not a conservative. At one time a prominent black who wasn't a paranoid race-baiter was considered "conservative." But that's not a lasting definition.

3. If life experience tells you that 10% of whites and 40% are blacks are assholes, that doesn't make you a racist. You're a racist if you think all blacks are assholes. (Or all whites, which is what 40% of blacks believe).

4. It's funny that Purple Penguin thinks racial issues in the US are due to "skin color." It's cultural, dumbass.

So to speak. The guy was Speaker for years; I doubt voters need it pointed out to them that Newt's about as insider-y as a man can be.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

How does General Powell fit into the "destroy the conservative Black man" meme?

He doesn't. General Powell is not a conservative.

It is a shame to see the vicious destruction of Cain and the pain that the attack dogs of the media are inflicting upon a decent woman...Cain's wife.

The media, as people, should burn in Hell for the hurt to the Cains and the destruction that they have brought down upon our country in their partisan zeal.

However, if nothing else, Cain was able to contribute something of value to the political season. A real consideration of reforming the tax system that we have now with his 9-9-9 plan. Maybe that will be his legacy.

damikesc said...

Perhaps the difference between Powell and Cain/Thomas is that he is actually qualified for higher office, and doesn't need to get hysterical about "high tech lynching."

As pointed out elsewhere, Powell is not conservative by any rational measure of the word.

He thought John McCain was too conservative for his support. McCain --- who isn't exactly known for being a terribly conservative fellow either.

Cain has issues but it's the GOP-TP calling him a n****r

When did a Tea Partier call him anything negative? He's a LEGITIMATELY brilliant man who needs more seasoning in policy before being a possible President. He'd be an excellent Senator or Representative.

I love how fast a conservative can be throw under a bus when they do the absolute unforgivable, and say something nice about a Democrat.

Rose said...

They knocked him off his game. Got him defending himself against allegations rather than talking about policies, and too distracted to speak clearly on things like Libya. The process is grueling, the debate schedule alone exhausting.

A good man is knocked off his game by false allegations that damage his reputation - whereas for Clinton, such allegations were something he was ready for, had an excuse made up, and a plan of action - the guilty man suffers no confusion.

It's sad.

Nevertheless, whoever emerges from this gauntlet of fire will be hardened steel. And has to be, given the dire straits we find ourselves in. Maybe we have to have the guilty man, who has no ability to feel the guilt. A character flaw, like the ability to lie, which a president must also possess...

Is that what we're looking for? The best liar? Biggest con man? Best cheater? Both Clinton's and Obama's elections say "yes."

Ralph L said...

It did, but he stayed in, outlasted the others, and the Democrats sucked it up and rallyed to him at the convention.

It doesn't make sense to me. If you are having an affair with a man - presumably you care about him, love him even, and would do nothing to hurt him.

This woman - went out of her way to hurt him. It doesn't jibe. "Wanting it to come out on her terms" is bogus too - all she would have to do is say "no comment."

BTW - tho - where are Obama's ex-dates? Girlfriends? Significant others?

phx said...

I believe it was to wait until the people of Beirut had elected a replacement for Quadaffi.

I believe his exit strategy on Afghanistan and Iraq was to listen to the generals. So we should ask the generals what the exit strategy is.

Fen said...

How about if we just choose candidates who are married and faithful and don't have character issues?

Winston Churchill was a chauvanist and a drunk. He also happened to save Western Civilization from the socialist Nazi.

See, the problem isn't that Cain has character flaws, the problem is inadequate way he handled the entire thing. And this was just a microburst of what he could expect to face 24/7 as POTUS.

Looks like I have no where to turn but Newt.

edutcher said...

Herman's big sin was being a successful black man. More to the point, a successful, self-made black man who didn't owe his success to the Lefty Welfare-Industrial Complex.

He has to be destroyed in the same way Sarah Palin has to be destroyed for being a successful, self-made woman who doesn't owe her success to the feminist grievance machine.

And Marco Rubio will have to be destroyed for the same reason.

Get past the FUD merchants and the disgruntled Libertarians and "Conservatives" who are throwing a hissy fit because their guy (or girl) either didn't run or hasn't stayed the course (or so it seems at this point) and you have Professor Jacobson's observation that, regarding Herman Cain, we still have no proof and no evidence.

PS I note Ann has featured mccullough's moronic comment about Herman bringing this woman forward to give him a graceful way out of the race.

Now that's projection.

Where are those first 4 women anyway? They made their splash and disappeared before they gave a shred of evidence...hmmm, what happened to the big plans, combined news conferences, documentation, actual proof...but, that was never the plan was it? They did their job and they went back under the rocks came out from under.

So, out comes the big gun...the affair...wow that's a first, right? A politician having an affair.

None of that is the issue anyway and in the end the real issue is what will get Cain...those that liked him, likde that he was different from the "Slick Willies" of the world. Now, without absolute proof of a vast left wing conspiracy...or at least a name of someone/group behind the swift boating...he ends up looking like all the others. And that, just won't cut it.

Personally, I just feel really bad for his wife. She has such grace about her, with just enough sharp edge to hold her own with a big personality like Cain. She deserved much better than this.

mccullough said...

7M,

I meant that Palin quit as Alaska governor. She wasn't tough enough to serve out her term. Her excuses for doing so don't wash.

She doesn't want to be President, which is fine. A very normal decision. She certainly flirted with the idea to sell books and promote her celebrity, which is fine.

Palin has whined a lot, though, about the unfair treatment. Hillary did to. I think they do it to gain sympathy and punch back. But Hillary's still standing.

Perhaps Bill Clinton is a better example of someone who wouldn't quit, despite the impeachment and all the b.s.

mccullough said...

SunnyJ,

I think those women disappeared because the story was over. Cain survived the accusations, which really weren't much anyway.

His answer on Libya and his complete failure to educate himself on important issues are what's hurting him. You can't be this ignorant and be President.

What drivel!

The fact that both the former Serial Rapist In Chief and the Hildabeast were and are the beneficiaries of a compliant and complicit Establishment Media more than willing to cover up for them and always ready to put the best face on their misdeeds is, of course, insignificant.

And, Lord knows, even with the nomination almost handed to her, Hilla couldn't even mount a decent campaign against a nonentity from Chicago who campaigned on nothing. She couldn't even make a decision to settle a dispute among her aides.

Oh, yeah, she wanted it. /sarc

While I think Herman's been undone by his willingness to concentrate on the economy to the exclusion of other topics (as I've noted on several occasions), mccullough wants us to believe he has taken a year out of his life, put his reputation on display, and undergone a grueling odyssey across this country for a lark.

Actually, mcculough's nonsense sounds more like mccullough's boy, Daniels, who folded when he might actually have to fight somebody for the nomination (or, at least he was the one mccullough told us was his man when the field was wide open - now he sounds just like another moby).

Hillary Clinton is tougher than Sarah Palin, and that's all there is to it.

Yeah, that's why the Hildabeast has spent the last 3 years licking Zero's boots and being humiliated by him while Zero appointed a bunch of foreign policy czars to do her job while Miss Sarah has refused to be silenced and galvanized opposition to ZeroCare.

PS Garbage like that makes me think mccullough is just Hatman without the hat.

Curious George said...

"mccullough said...
I'm guessing that Cain asked this woman to come forward and tell about their affair so he could have an excuse to get out of the race.

He never had any serious intention of being President."

This is idiocy. First it requires that he actually had this affair. But even if we assume that he did, he didn't have to go to this length to leave the race...he could have simply said "I quit." No shaming his family. Or himself.

Seven Machos said...

Ed -- You are so invested in Cain despite his readily obvious lack of experience and qualification. It must be a sad end for you. I am sympathetic because there can be only one, like in Highlander, and a lot of people will end up disappointed, at least for awhile.

However, your comparison to Daniels is a sorry one. Daniels didn't run for the same basic reason Cain will soon drop out: personal marital and sex issues. Daniels's wife left him for another man and then they got back together and remarried later. He -- and, I'm sure, his wife -- didn't feel like dredging up what must be a monstrously sad period in their lives.

Please make a note of it.

mccullough said...

Edutcher,

You are entertaining. Cain didn't take a year out of his life because his radio show ended back in February.

He has been trying to promote his books. He retired from a successful career in the private sector a while ago.

He ran for President in 2000 and for Senator in 2004.

I don't blame the guy for trying to make a buck. He saw how well Obama and Palin did and rightly figured he actually accomplished something. But he doesn't want to be President. Never has.

As for Daniels, I'd put his record up against Palin's two years and huge spending increases and bloated state payroll. But neither of them are running. Daniels is serving out his second term as Indiana governor and Palin is posting criticisms on the Fed's open-market operations on Facebook. Cain will soon be joining her. Time for you to find another candidate.

As for the media's treatment of Bill Clinton and Hillary, you are misinfored. The media never liked the Clintons, and neither did the Democratic establishment. That's a big reason Hillary lost. But she's toiling away at Secretary of State and is not a quitter. Neither is Daniels. Neither is Bill Clinton.

Edutcher, you back losers and are lashing out at others because you are a loser, too.

Henry said...

Here's a song for the media:

Blame it on Cain.
Don't blame it on me.
Oh it's nobody's fault,
But we need somebody to burn.

pbAndjFellowRepublican said...

".....you are a loser, too."


A loser at something specific? Perhaps he has been a loser at backgammon or Pac-Man.

It seems a little silly to conclude he embodies loserness.

If you had said "reoccurring wrongness" it'd be harder to question your assessment.

Joe Schmoe said...

Powell was in the public eye long before his endorsement of Obama. Why weren't libs/media trying to destroy him then? He was being touted as a possible GOP presidential candidate.

Powell thought about running for prez, but never officially entered the race. He cited his wife's battles with depression as his reason for abstaining. He claimed he was worried about the effects an invasive and insatiable press would have on their family life.

Could be true; might not be. He might've had a skeleton or 2 in his closet. But since he never ran for anything he was never vetted the way Cain was.

Powell had a hissy fit after the runup to the Gulf War 2. He felt used when he made his case for war at the UN, and then distanced himself from Cheney and Rumsfeld. And then he endorsed Obama.

Do you now see why the press have laid off him? His Democrat street cred has never been higher.

Wrong again, as always. I just hate to see a good man defamed. Apparently, the sophists, trolls and mobys here have no such problem.

Seven states the obvious when he says there will be only one nominee (not a blinding insight, after all), but, of course, he knows better than everyone else - at least until he sticks his foot in his mouth as he always does when defending a position he takes more for the sake of being a contrarian than any real logical basis.

PS mccullough is sounding more and more like several of our other trolls by the minute. His whole "you back losers and are lashing out at others because you are a loser" rant is the sort of infantile raving we've heard from so many of the Lefties here when they can't make a decent rebuttal.

And, yes, the Lefty Establishment so hated Willie and Hilla that they repudiated Dan Blather when he told Willie, "If we could only be half as great as Mrs Clinton and you, we'd come away winners".

Palin resigned because libtards were abusing a loophole in the law to hamstring her administration and bankrupt her with frivolous law suits. She resigned to protect the people of Alaska from that.
