Here’s a place where undying Cain supporters — those who don’t give a hoot about what several women have claimed he has done to them — can give him “encouragement;” can “show their support,” can “communicate their prayers;” can tell him why it is so important for him to stay in the race and become our next president; can trash the Left for “trying their best to discredit him because they fear him;” but, most important, can trash those women who have had the courage to come forward and tell the world their side of the story.

Of course, you can also make a generous donation to Cain’s campaign there.

But you better hurry up — time may be running out.

Here’s a typical, uplifting message of support:

Bill Clinton was Imorral [sic] and proven….It didn’t matter, He was a Democrate [sic],,,,You, Sir are neither… Without you I will not bother to even vote. We will be stuck with Democrate [sic] and Republicrate[sic]…little or no difference, WE KNOW THE NUMBER THAT WAS PULLED ON YOU…THIS IS WHY WE ARE IN THE MESS WE ARE IN…#1 GOD #2 Family This is #3 or lower, GOD BLESS IN YOUR DECISION”

Here is the “Encouragement for Herman Cain” site, blazoned with words such as restore, boost, applaud, embolden, inspire, rally, spur — someone has gotten a hold of a good thesaurus.

BTW, Herman also has a “Women for Herman Cain” site, an “online national fellowship of women dedicated to helping elect Herman Cain as the next President of the United States.”

Why? Because,

Mr. Cain has been a strong advocate for women throughout his lifetime, defending and promoting the issues of quality health care, family, education, equality in the workplace and many other concerns so important to American women.

LOL Dorian…You must be afraid of Herman Cain.

You have topped the list with Herman Cain as public enemy number one.

Have you met any of these women? You have one long term gold-digger and two complete wacky mammies vs. a Navy intelligence mathematics master. You automatically go with the wacky because why?

THIS MAN CAN WIN THE NOMINATION!

I mean Dorian, what could be better?

And forget about his ignorance re foreign policy. He can always use Wikipedia for that right? Or maybe he can give Dick Cheney his old job back!

This doesn’t seem very “moderate” to me, but then that’s being sarcastic, isn’t it?

I am a woman, I live in Georgia, I am conservative fiscally and socially liberal, and I like Cain because he is NOT charismatic like so many well known politicians. I believe charisma is a dangerous quality in a leader. I see Mr. Cain as a real person. That’s it.

Mara, there are many non-charismatic politicians in the country. Would you vote for all of them too? There should be policy reasons for you to support a candidate. Should

The double and triple standards that exist in this country are amazing. FDR died with his lover at his side. Kennedy had many mistresses, even in the living quarters of the White House. Everyone knows about Clintons affairs and everyone knows about Gingrich and the way he treated his wife while she was in the hospital.(And he is now the front runner)

Now comes Herman Cain and it is like it has never happened before. This is an unexcusable act of a man in a power position. Please, even Jackson had his sexual encounters with his slaves. It has happened over and over again and why it causes such a stir now is only due to the medias appetite for juicy stories.

But then there is also Romney. Different problem, but same outcome. George Romney was running for President in 1968 and was considered the front runner, even though he was Morman. Little was said about his religion. Might have been the fact that Kennedy was accused of answering to the pope before he was elected and people were tired of religion and politics in the same breath. Romney went down in flames due to his “brain washed” comment, not his religion. Now Mitt Romney is running and his religion is a problem. Much like Kennedy and being catholic.

It is time we look at the person and their ability to lead this country as we are going to be stuck with lessor and lessor qualified individuals if we will not accept those that have strayed from being an angel in life or not being a member of one of the “big 5″ christian religions.

I agree that we have seen all this before. If Mr. Cain had other abilities that compensated for the scandal, or if he was living in a different era–its possible he could be still considered as electable-.Cain is no Kennedy, FDR, Jackson or Clinton and a big chunk of the base of his party is the religious right. Even Gingrich survives scrutiny because his adultery was many years ago (as far as we know). Also, we now have 24/7 media outlets that delight in giving the public every detail of a politician’s indiscretions.

RP, hypocrisy as is the problem. People like Cain demonize others while having long term affairs with gay partners and supporting a meth habit.

It’s not Cain’s private life that bothers me in the least. It must be pointed out, however, that Republicans are the ones who have made this bed that he must lie in. It’s his utter ignorance of the realities of policy that make him useless as a candidate to me. His 999 plan is a joke that would never work and he knows nothing of international issues. Cain says that doesn’t matter because he would surround himself with people who do understand those issues. But as Truman noted, the buck stops behind that desk in the Oval Office. Someone as ignorant on the issues as Cain has shown himself to be would have no basis to reach a good final decision when those advisers disagree among themselves. That is why he should never be seriously considered for the presidency.

To bring this up to semi-current time and to offer a little contrast to the 2008 Dem presidential candidate contest, I offer this:
(1) Bill Richardson accused off using campaign money to, guess what, pay for a woman.
http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/2011/12/01/bill-richardson-under-investigation-for-2008-presidential-campaign-violations/
(2) Edwards on his way to jail
(3) Hillary with Whitewater and Bill and lost papers, etc.
So maybe there are some similarities.

Although I think Cain could be an interesting Cabinet pick I’ve never felt he was a good Presidential pick.

However there does (big shock) seem to be a degree of double standards on both sides.

Many who went after candidates of the left for affairs now defend Cain and vice versa.

In other words, politics as usual

To all that commented on my 11:57 post.

I agree with all that is written.

My point is where politics are headed with the country now, not specifically Cain or any other politician. As we enter a time where we need the best and brightest to be president to lead this country through troubled times to come due to years of fiscal mismanagement, we may not have those to pick. In fact, we may not even have the someone who would be average in any other business to pick.

Who wants to put themselves in a position where the opposition can say anything about a persons character, either truth or lie, and have no recourse if it is not true. He said/she said. Neither will hold up in court. But reputation is ruined, marriage may be ruined and kids have to listen to stories about their parent who is accused.

What we end up with in leadership is another Bush, who ran up debt that would be hard to pay off or another B.O. who is smart, but appears to not have the leadership skills to bring the country together (as did Reagan). He believes in divide and conquer with his dividing the country between the rich and poor. Leadership would bring the two sides together and work out solutions. But one of his best quotes was to McCain during the healthcare summit, “the election is over and I won”.(My way or no way!) Or we end up with a Gingrich who is highly intelligent, but also lacks personal skills to work with anyone. He demonstrated that during the Clinton presidency. I believe he was the father of the current divisive politics that exist today since politicians did like each other until the mid 90’s.

But time will only tell what happens 5-10 years from now.

Jim S. nailed it. Bottom line: Cain just doesn’t have the right stuff. Remember, we’re talking about a future president of the USA. Just because someone (and their ego) chooses to run for the position doesn’t automatically mean they’ve earned the right to be taken seriously. Cain is OUT. (it’s a wonder he lasted as long as he did)

Jim Satterfield-

..and how much do you know about foreign policy Jim?

I submit that nobody know what the upper echelons of our government knows about the rest of the world. That is why, with each new president, nearly the same foreign policies persist regardless of how outspoken the elected had been about the outgoing president’s foreign policy during campaign. Obviously a great relearning takes place by the President elect in the interim before inauguration.

Only advisors can give you the full picture. IMO Herman Cain is merely being honest. We never get the chance to elect the most intelligent among us, because the most intelligent never run for office.
