Dedicated Reader Asks My Opinion on Cain

Sarkazein posted: "Impatiently waiting Blogger's opinion on Mr Cain's veracity."

Thanks for asking, but I am sure my response will disappoint you. In my guts, I wish Cain would just fade away. I get a queasy feeling that something just is not ringing true about him and I go with those people who believe that if he had won some previous offices, he would have been well vetted by now.

However, saying that, I feel ashamed of myself that I am willing to throw a man overboard on such flimsy evidence. However, I will commit myself with this. I do believe that if the women can pull off a joint press conference like they are planning, then he is toast. Following is a thoughtful article from a prominent conservative. GOP and Cain

Today's Rasmussen: 51% Now Say Allegations Against Cain Likely to Be Serious and True

I have no way to determine who is telling the truth in this matter - but I agree with your earlier statement, Blogger. I can't convict him on such flimsy evidence.

Unfortunately, in our world, the damage is done with the accusation. A "conviction" isn't required - suspicion is enough!

Reader said...

I can't determine either, but for now I'm going with my gut feeling. Being a woman, I've experienced men saying things to me...I don't think a comment about how tall I am, would be considered sexual. It would be a very cold day before I'd hug or shake a man's hand, that pushed my head in his crotch. It's all about how you carry yourself, if you act respectful...you get respect.

I think people need to be circumspect in their treatment of Cain. So far all we know is that of the two accusers whose identities we know, one has been identified as a golddigger and the other a professional victim that has a history of filing work place complaints.

I do not know if the conspiracy to railroad Cain (by the media) will be effective, but if it is and Romney gets the nomination, then I think Obama is going to be re-elected.

See this liberal slobber all over his desks as he calls for people to break the law.

Who let LPOV back here? Just when the blog was becoming pleasurable to read again.

NewGuy said...

G.I.G.
You didn't think he was going to honor his word did you? He has been posting occasionally even though he committed to Blogger that he wouldn't post any more if Blogger asked him not to...

Blogger did...and, as you can see, Lib turned out to be a liar on this subject just as he always has been on most subjects.

No matter...easy enough to deal with.

Ann Coulter has a pretty good theory on the Cain "outing"....


See her column..

Whoa! New Guy- Coulter's article puts this in a whole new light. Obama's political kin are thugs and gangsters. I'm soooo confused.

NewGuy said...

Sark...I don't know if she is right or not...
BUT
You have to assume that Obama isn't raising a billion dollars to use it in advertizing all the great things he has done. So...if he is going to campaign based on tearing down the competition, this fits right in

Sarkazein said...

NewGuy- It is just so risky-- trying to keep a conspiracy secret with four women. If it is found to be a set-up by Obama thugs, he's done for forever. It could be only the Gloria Alred client is part of this conspiracy and she's using the others under the direction of Axlerod or Daly.

Josh Krajcik for President!

Did you notice the media was booed when they tried to limit the debate to allegations about Cain and questions bout issues were applauded?

Mike D. said...

Guy,

I loved that part. It really seems like the public is telling NBC that the jig is up.

The long con can only be played for so long before the mark wises up and spits the hook. NBC has been at it for years, but they overplayed their hand, and now they just look like outed stooges for the real handler.

Seeing a debate moderator booed for obvious bias was a beautiful thing, empowering. The silent majority has awakened. Shhhh. Hehe.

I deleted my comment above. Turns out Obama's David Axelrod is not an attorney. Hard to believe, he seems so sleazy.

guy faulkes said...

There appears to b a lot of coverage on Cain taking eleven seconds to compose his thoughts concerning a question during the last debate. Do you think if Obama thought before he talked, he would commit less gaffs such as saying there are 57 states?
