  • Cain Officially Endorses Romney

    05/16/2012 3:32:05 PM PDT · by Perdogg · 17 replies
    One-time presidential front-runner Herman Cain endorsed Mitt Romney for president on Wednesday, saying a unified Republican front is critical to winning the White House this fall. “One way to achieve this goal of a ‘more perfect union’ is by getting Barack Obama out of the White House,” Cain said outside the National Republican Club in Washington. “Throwing our support and energy behind Mitt Romney is a big step in accomplishing this mission.”
  • Why I Support Newt Gingrich For President (Herman Cain)

    01/29/2012 4:36:14 PM PST · by tsowellfan · 15 replies ^ | 1/29/2012 | Herman Cain
    In a sea of negativity and distractions in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, I decided to throw my support behind former Speaker Newt Gingrich because I can now see much clearer distinctions between President Obama and Newt than I do between Governor Mitt Romney and the president. These distinctions are between Obama’s hodgepodge of foggy small ideas, which he talked about in his State of the Union address, and Speaker Gingrich’s clear and bold solutions for solving the crises we face as a nation. And yes, my bold 9-9-9 tax reform plan is a serious consideration for Speaker...

    Thousands have flocked to watch a fake presidential rally held by comedian Steve Colbert and one-time Republican presidential frontrunner Herman Cain in Charleston, South Carolina. And in an interesting twist, the crowd, comprised mostly of students, was far larger audience than any at an actual rally during this year's election cycle in the state. Herman Cain, whose presidential campaign was plagued - and finished - by a string of accusations of sexual misconduct, appeared alongside Read more:

    He may be running a fake candidacy, but Stephen Colbert is having a very real rally in South Carolina — co-hosted by Herman Cain. The Comedy Central personality announced on his show Wednesday that he would unite with the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO for the "Rock Me Like a Herman Cain!" rally to get voters — and fans — excited for the comedian and Cain's "non-candidacies". "There will be speeches, there will be cheerleaders, there will be a marching band and a gospel band — this is going to be even better than my rally in D.C.," Colbert said on...
  • Herman Cain says he'd like to be secretary of Defense

    LA Times ^ | Thursday December 15, 2011
    Herman Cain is no longer running for president. He doesn't think he's likely to be picked as the eventual nominee's running mate, either. But he does have a Cabinet post in mind should the GOP win the White House next fall: secretary of Defense. [....] Cain shared the idea with ABC's Barbara Walters during her annual special on the "10 Most Fascinating People." And the veteran journalist was just a bit surprised. Cain said he thought he'd be a good pick because he wants to "influence rebuilding our military the way it should be." Walters, still stunned, reminded Cain of...

    Herman Cain is expected to make a "major announcement" today, anytime between 11am and 1pm EST in Atlanta. The media is assuming he will quit the race. Politico is positively glowing with anticipation of this. Will he fold, or FIGHT? He is also opening a new Atlanta HQ. Twitter reports that people are jamming in early to show their support. We simply don't know what will happen, or when it will happen. What are your thoughts? Do you think he should quit? Or do you think Cain should stay in the race and deny the State-Run Media yet another GOP...

    by Sheri UrbanReal FeministRepublican presidential candidate Herman Cain is planning a "major announcement" for tomorrow in Atlanta. After the latest "accuser" - yet another walking car wreck - alleged a 13-year affair with Cain (which he has denied), the "embattled" candidate said he would be conferring with his wife "face-to-face" in Georgia, before deciding whether or not to continue his campaign. It has been widely speculated by the media that Cain's announcement will be to end his run. I have one thing to say to this: "NUTS!" Why the hell should he drop out? There hasn't been anything proven against...
  • Herman Cain has many of the same qualities of leadership George Washington had

    Looking back at American history, Herman Cain has a lot in common with George Washington. Washington never really wanted, nor actively sought out the top military leadership role in our fight and war for independence from Great Britain. He was, like all of us a flawed man, to a degree, with many mistakes, shortcomings and failings in both his personal and military life. Brash actions in conflicts, a French diplomat killed while on diplomatic mission, witnessing the death of his sixteen year old step daughter in his arms, all served to mold and form Washington into the future great leader...

    MILLER: What about my endorsements? Listen, you know why I'm off the Cain train, Billy. O'REILLY: Why? MILLER: He can't win. Listen, he's still a great guy, and this is a fluid situation for me. If he gives us the best chance to win tomorrow, I'm back on. But today, he can't win. O'REILLY: I know, I know. I mean, his numbers are down. The Fox News poll just out today got him at 15 percent. And the people who have defected from Herman Cain have gone to Newt Gingrich. And I suspect, Miller, that you are one of those....

    Herman Cain leads the Republican presidential field in Iowa, according to a new poll released Thursday. The Iowa State University/Gazette/KCRG poll found that the former Godfather's Pizza CEO leads the GOP field in Iowa with the support of 24.5 percent of Republican voters. Cain is followed by Ron Paul with 20.4 percent of the vote, then Mitt Romney with 16.3 percent. The poll's findings are somewhat in contrast with a number of recent national polls that found Cain's recent front-runner or near-front-runner status disappearing in light of allegations that he sexually harassed a number of women while he was president...

    Businessman Herman Cain is the favorite of Tennessee voters for the state’s March 6 presidential Republican primary election, but female voters are far less likely to support him. That pattern is unlikely to change in light of allegations of sexual harassment against him, according to a new poll by the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions at Vanderbilt University. Cain was the choice of 22 percent of 823 likely primary voters polled Oct. 28 through Nov. 5. The poll was conducted as the sexual harassment claims started to arise. Yet Cain’s support did not change much as the story...

    Donna Donella, one of the five women caught up in the charges of sexual harassment being leveled against Herman Cain, said Wednesday she is not an “accuser.” “I take issue with being labeled in the media as 'Accuser No. 5,' ” she said in an interview with The Washington Times-affiliated “America's Morning News” radio program. “I want to make it very clear that Herman Cain never sexually harassed me, I’ve never accused Herman Cain of sexually harassing me. The only reason that I came forward is because I saw behavior, the one day that I met him … that was...

    ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) - Private investigator TJ Ward said presidential hopeful Herman Cain was not lying at a news conference on Tuesday in Phoenix. Cain denied making any sexual actions towards Sharon Bialek and vowed to take a polygraph test if necessary to prove his innocence. Cain has not taken a polygraph but Ward said he does have software that does something better. Ward said the $15,000 software can detect lies in people's voices.

    Joel Bennett held a press conference moments ago on behalf of his client who alleged sexual harassment charges against Herman Cain, and it amounted to a big fat zero of any relevant information to this. The woman doesn’t want to reveal her identity or her side of the story. What’s interesting is that the NRA, according to their statement below, would have released her from the confidentiality portion of the agreement to allow her to vocalize her side of the story. But they still opted not to. So, end of story. Here is the NRA’s statement: “We have seen the...

    Last night, Herman Cain wowed the crowd at the Alabama Federation of Republican Women’s state meeting held in Huntsville, AL. He spoke for about an hour to a packed house. Both the meet-and-greet photo session held prior the dinner and the dinner itself were sold-out. Prior to Mr. Cain’s entrance, the moderator of the event announced that Mr. Cain had garnered 51% of the group’s straw poll taken earlier in the day. The other candidates “weren’t even close” she said. Bill Armistead, the Alabama Chairman of the Republican Party gave the introduction by telling of his meeting earlier in the...

    “The thing that I think is going to convince people that my campaign is credible is the fact that if I make a misstatement, I’m willing to retract it. If I make a mistake, I’m willing to admit I made a mistake,” Cain told reporters after a $500-a-person private fundraiser at a downtown steakhouse. Asked by reporters if such a quality was presidential, Cain responded, “Yes it is, because the last perfect person was hung on a cross 2,000 years ago,” a reference to Jesus Christ.

    Is this where the Cain fairy tale ends? For all his unscripted authenticity and rough-edged conservative charm, Cain is withering under the scrutiny that attends presidential front-runners. First, he has made unforced errors that suggest a surprising lack of discipline. Discussing a plan to build a fence along the border with Mexico, Cain said the barrier “is going to be electrified, and there’s going to be a sign on the other side saying, ‘It will kill you.’ ” He subsequently apologized “if I offended anyone.” Aiming at Wall Street protesters, Cain’s scattershot fire instead hit 14 million unemployed Americans. “Don’t...
