This attempted smear article that Politico put out late Sunday night is a joke...:
[Quote: The women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them financial payouts to leave the association. The agreements also included language that bars the women from talking about their departures.
POLITICO has confirmed the identities of the two female restaurant association employees who complained about Cain but, for privacy concerns, is not publishing their names. End quote]
... Herman Cain is the People's Choice...
Not the media's choice ... Not the Republican Establishment choice ... & certainally not the Democrat's choice opponent (they all want Romney or Perry)...they all want the Rhino's of the party... None of the above can gain leverge on what the people are hearing from Herman Cain... So their strategy is make the public hear something else ... besides Mr Cain's message...
Well now hear this media, republican establishment, & democratic party.
WE ARE AMERICA...ONE VOICE UNITED WE STAND...WE ARE AMERICA...ONE VOICE TO HEAL OUR LAND...
NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO TO ATTACK HERMAN CAIN ... YOUR TOO LATE!!! YOU CANNOT STOP THE CAIN TRAIN!!! BECAUSE WE AMERICA HAS ALREADY SEEN MR CAIN'S HEART TO HEAL THIS COUNTRY & NOW WE ARE EVEN MORE DETERMINED TO SUPPORT HIM...
SO TAKE YOUR BEST SHOT BECAUSE WE THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA HAS HERMAN CAIN'S BACK!!!
There are those in both the Republican and Democrat Pratys THAT DO NOT WANT Herman Cain to win the 2012 election. They will stop at NOTHING to shut down the Cain Train, because he is living proof that success in America is based upon "equal... opportunity" versus "equal outcome". His lifetime is representative of LIBERTY that every Americans a can achieve outside government entitlements. The oppos...ition wants you to believe he is Pro-Choice, as he denounces Planned Parenthood's genocide attacks of the poor black communities since 1918. They attempted to dismantle his 9-9-9 plan that is 100% pro-PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS! And finally, his moral character is being protrayed as "questionable and scandalous". The actions and motives of many professional politicians will be called into question when Herman Cain is elected president simply because he is everything THEY are not.
Ladies and gentleman, fellow patriots, they have attacked Mr. Cain on every side of what we represent--- pro-LIFE, pro-LIBERTY, and pro-PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. To allow the left to sway your opinion of Herman Cain is aiding and abeding the enemy! We will be cutting our own throats with the knife they handed us. If our motives are genuine, our objective clear --- we must stop the establishment elitiests in 2012. We have to enture Herman Cain is nominated, otherwise get ready for the Romeny pill that WILL NOT CURE the cancer that are destroying our nation. WAKE UP American, we are either going to be slaves to our government or we restore our rightful place as MASTER! Its "We the People", NOT "We the slaves of tyranny".
I contend that not only are the Socialist Democrats and establishment Republicans attempting to destroy Mr. Cain, but they are attacking EVERY conservative, free loving, constitution reading, gun toting, flag waving, defenders of the Republic, bible reading, American! Stand tall or get trompled on just like the U.S. Constitution.
First of all, I don't care what the left comes up with against any of the GOP candidates. I DON'T CARE. Anyone is better than barack hussein obama and I mean ANYONE..... when the media did NOT vet him, they set the precedent that anything goes in this country. In fact, anything went with the bill clinton election as well. We knew that he had an 11 year affair with gennifer flowers...that didn't stop people from voting for him....hey, NOTHING will stop me from voting AGAINST barack hussein obama.... NOTHING.... I would vote for a convicted rapist against barack hussein obama.... you see, what the left doesn't understand is that WE DESPISE barack hussein obama FAR WORSE than they despised George W. Bush.... they can take that to the bank...... 2012- END OF AN ERROR!!!
Either you have to be a lawyer or closely listen to lawyers like mark levin, ann coulter & laura ingraham to seriously understand gag orders & out of court settlements which are not admissions of guilt.
How about a little hypocrisy with a side of irony? Bill Clinton, our then sitting President, engaged in sexual acts, with an intern, who was not his wife, in the Oval office; the epicenter of our trust. To top it off, Slick Willy committed actual crimes when he perjured himself & obstructed justice. Yet, despite his long history of womanizing, he is as popular as ever with Democrats. Herman Cain? A self-made man who served his country, is a devout Christian & a devoted family man. Yet, when baseless accusations of sexual harassment are levied against him, liberals demand justice. All I know is this: if Cain wins the nomination, he will defeat Obama. Guess who knows that as well?
I like what you wrote here... I added it to my blog and gave you credit, as much as I could... If this is not OK with you, let me know and I will delete it.
This should take you to my blog... Google... Darrell Bermel My Blog
Herman Cain will beat Obama and I doubt that any white candidate can... The country needs Herman Cain.
Just watched Greta, I hope tomorrow she has a more informative show with HC on the issues, I'm hoping she talked to Mr. Cain about more than this lameness.
No. The facts are irrelevant to a lynch mob. Cain could be completely innocent, but the Left will smear him with it as if it were true. The Left doesn't have to convict him, they just needs to raise doubts.
Flashback: To this day the Left repeats the lie that Scooter Libby went to jail for outing Valerie Plame in spite of the fact that he was actually sent to jail for not answering a question to the satisfaction of the judge; a process crime.
Welcome to reality...
I know we have higher standards...just making a point about the double standards in liberal politics and how they are treated compared to conservatives.
I also know Cain should be up front. He's inexperienced, I get that. And you try remembering the exact details from an event over 10 years ago. Granted, he needs to get it straight. At least when he lies he'll get called on it, unlike the liberals who get a free pass from the SRM.
He was not talking about a settlement but a severance package for her to leave the organization. He said he knew nothing about a settlement and that still holds true.
I really do not care about this. Just another attempt to bring down someone who is not part of the insider game.
Well I heard from someone, who talked to someone, who walked the dog of someone that knew someone that heard that Barrack Obama say that he wanted all white people to die. That is pretty much the insanity of this story from the hacks at politico. This is the classic leftist tactic of accusing the other side of the things they are guilty of themselves. Wonder if we should look into B.H.O's past to see if there are any of these accusations against him, oh wait we cant cuz they have locked all his documents into John Kerry's Social Security lockbox.
Heh, you think anyone in Hippie-ville here cares? He's got an D in front of his name and he's partially black. He's pure as the fresh driven snow.
Cain may not be handling this fiasco the way the MSM elites think he should, but I don't believe any of those hacks will be voting for him. Until This hit piece lays some names, dates and faces out there, I aint buying the bunk.
I don't see any reason to believe this is a Democrat hit offhand:
Democrats would have had the docs unsealed as they did with Jack Ryan.
Democrats wouldn’t have wasted this shot this early in the campaign. Now they're just inconveniencing one of a herd of primary candidates, instead of the nominee.
Gingrich doesn’t benefit; these are NOT the kind of issues he wants discussed when he’s busy rehabilitating himself as Mr. Brainiac the Ideas Guy.
Perry could plausibly assume he would pick up any alienated Cain voters before Romney would. So to that extent, the ploy might appeal. Also, the Perries have been tough-talking their resurgent campaign.
Romney has no reason to put those Cain voters back in play since they split the anyone-but-Romney vote that constitutes 70% of the GOP base. So to that extent, the ploy does not appeal. BUT, as a short term attack predicated on avoiding any embarrassing setbacks in the early primaries, it might still be attractive. Also, the lightning response from an extremely conservative women's conservative Christian group based in DC hints at a GOP insider's game, particularly since that group has no previous record of attacking other pols for their morals. Also, they are an unlikely choice for Politico to hook up with.
Paul might do it out of malicious stupidity, but neither he, Bachmann, or Santorum, let alone Johnson and Huntsman, have enough base left to pick up enough to make difference.
I think Perry could have done it because he has a bunch of money and nothing to lose at this point because of his poll numbers...much like the way he tried to make a big deal out of Romney and his yard company back in 2007, which blew up in his face. He changed tactics, at least thats my feeling....
I just donated more to Hermans campaign. This entire make believe story is perfectly predictable from the left guppies. A Guppy fish can be fed a wide variety of foods (flakes, Spirulina, lettuce, bloodworms, spinach, freeze dried foods, mosquito larvae). That is exactly what has been feed to these parasites.
Sorry, gang, I hate to be the reality troll but Herman is not handling this well. He first didn't know about the settlement and now he says he knew about it and will provide details on Greta. He said the claims were false and now he says they were based on a misunderstanding.
Sorry, Herman, better luck in 2016.
How should he have handled it? By saying "I did not have sexual relations, um harassment, with that woman"? By being a good lib and lying (if it's even true to begin with, which I doubt. Sexual harassment is sooo hard to prove and hypersensitivity by women is commonplace)? It was a long time ago and involves/d legalities that he must be careful to not violate.
Tell the truth and move on? That never crosses a libs' mind (Clinton, Edwards, Kennedys, etc.) and they get a pass almost all the time. Double standards are their rule and pass.
I can't remember what I had for luch yesturday and you expect Cain to remember how much a minor settelment was for?
Dear Reality Troll,
Why is your assumption that Herman Cain was lying? Maybe he was contacted and told that he could divulge items that he previously, under assumption or otherwise could not. Why must you go to the worst possible scenario that he lied and has killed his campaign?
Oh right, you don't want him to win. How's that for an assumption?
Dear Right Scoop,
where did I accuse Herman of lying? I said Herman is handling it badly. He should have just come clean and gotten it behind him. Tell the truth and move on.
I look at politics as a serious voter not a fan watching American Idol. Let me make another wager with you: if Herman Cain ends up with the nomination I will pay off your mortgage.
BTW: you still owe me for the Sarah Palin bet.
But you haven't seen the whole interview yet and you're writing him off because he clarified details of his story. Doesn't that mean you think he was hiding it before and not now?
BTW: What do I owe you again?
Let me make another wager with you: if Herman Cain ends up with the nomination I will pay off your mortgage.
This whole deal is ridiculous. This only came out because Cain is at the top of the polls. What's more despicable are those on the Right who are giving legitimacy to this story from Politico! Disgraceful! I know there are those who support Romney or Perry, but really, is this the way they want to win this thing?
Your assumption that Romney has anything to do with this story is unsubstantiated. Please refrain from making such allegations unless you have evidence of such information. Herman Cain and every other GOP contender must get used to responding to false personal attacks. Obama will wage that kind of election because his record is weak at best. I fully expect Cain to respond to all the allegations and clear up the issue with facts. In the meantime, don't accuse Romney of such despicable tactics of personal destruction.
