We all know Gingrich says one thing today, and tomorrow, its the other way around. How much longer will he last?
Arianna Huffington / Huffington Post
Now that Herman Cain has “suspended his campaign” (I’ve decided to honor him by suspending my reading of anything further about his candidacy / book tour), the race is down to three people: Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, and Newt Gingrich. At this point, the question isn’t so much whether Gingrich can beat Romney (he can), but whether Gingrich will beat Gingrich.
The task is complicated by the fact that there isn’t just one Gingrich. He’s a very Walt Whitmanesque candidate — he celebrates himself, he is large, and he contains multitudes. Read more….
This is getting all to familiar, with the crowds booing for some reason or another. When a CNBC debate host asked Herman Cain about the sexual harassment charges, the crowd started booing.
To audible boos and groans, CNBC debate host Maria Bartiromo on Wednesday asked GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain the question we’d been girding ourselves for — his sexual harassment allegations. It’s an odd fit for a debate on the economy, and Bartiromo had to couch it in terms of “leadership” and “character” in order to get it in. It only barely did — the audience was not happy to hear this inquiry coming up. Read more…
Herman Cain is just one of the Koch Brothers puppets, along with Mitt Romney and Rick Perry.
In the entertainment industry there is a saying that any publicity, negative or positive, is good publicity. In politics though, bad publicity can destroy a career or sink a politician’s chances of being elected if the scandal turns out to be true and often times, just the mention of untoward behavior is enough to end a campaign before it gets off the ground. The scandal of the past two weeks involving Herman Cain and charges he sexually harassed numerous women is not going away anytime soon and it is in part because of America’s salacious appetite for the sexual dalliances of public figures.

A Chicago-area woman, has come out and says how she sexually abused by Herman Cain. Makes one wonder, whether Koch Brothers will throw him under the bus.
Speaking in a halting voice, a Chicago-area woman accused Republican presidential contender Herman Cain on Monday of making an unwanted sexual advance against her more than a decade ago, saying she wanted to provide “a face and a voice” to support other accusers who have so far remained anonymous.
“Come clean,” Sharon Bialek challenged Cain, demanding he confess to any inappropriate behavior with her or other women.
The little people are getting fed up with the Koch Brothers, and their brethren are doing to this country.
As the GOP’s A-list sat down for an evening of a dinner and a movie (a a screening of Atlas Shrugged), a group of protesters gathered outside the convention center for a counter-event.
November 4, 2011 | Americans for Prosperity, a GOP front group funded in part by the billionaires Charles and David Koch, held a gala at DC’s Walter E. Washington Convention Center as part of its Defending The American Dream Summit, with appearances by Republican presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Herman Cain. Read more…
Hi-tech lynching? Where have heard this one before? Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings.
The Huffington Post
A group of Herman Cain supporters have released an aggressive new ad attacking the media for its coverage of the GOP frontrunner’s current sexual harassment controversy.
The ad — produced by Americans for Herman Cain, a SuperPAC affiliated with the candidate — uses ideas and language that many prominent conservatives in the media have employed in their response to the coverage, which began on Sunday with a Politico article about the two women who complained of being sexually harassed by by Cain in the 1990s. In the spot, the voice of Rush Limbaugh can be heard denouncing the media for what he says are “the ugliest racial stereotypes.” Read more…
Herman Cain says he’s “A Koch Brothers brother from an another mother.” Now he admits he is one of them.
Keep talking Herman, because your hanging yourself out to dry. And it can’t come soon enough. He is not presidential material.
The Huffington Post
GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain spoke at an America for Prosperity event on Friday, and proudly claimed to be the “Koch brothers’ brother from another mother.”
“I’m proud to know the Koch brothers. I’m very proud to know the Koch brothers. They make it sound like that we have had time to go fishing together, hunting together, scheme together, golfing together.” Read more at the Huffington Post.
More and more dirt is coming out now, how the Koch Brothers have Herman Cain in their back pockets.

Herman Cain’s presidential campaign has taken heat for relying on a private corporation to pay for a plethora of campaign services, potentially in violation of federal campaign finance law. According to documents obtained by Daniel Bice of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Cain chief of staff Mark Block set up a company called Prosperity USA and used it to pay for “tens of thousands of dollars in [campaign] expenses for such items as Ipads, chartered flights and travel to Iowa and Las Vegas.” Read more in Nation of Change
The topic this week to cheer about at the Republican debates, is the audience cheering for unemployed. Why doesn’t the Koch sponsored Cain go to NYC, and tell the Occupy Wall Street protesters, and 99ers, that the unemployed are to blame. I’m sure they would give him an earful.

Herman Cain won’t be around to much longer. The only thing he has going for him, which won’t fly even on the windiest of days, is his 9-9-9 tax plan. If Mitt Romney was further to the right, Cain wouldn’t even be a blip on the radar screen.

Washington – Just be patient and you, too, can lead the polls for the Republican presidential nomination. Witness the ascent of Herman Cain.
Don’t laugh. “There’s a difference between the flavor of the week and Haagen-Dazs Black Walnut, because it tastes good all the time,” Cain told reporters this week. “Call me Haagen-Dazs Black Walnut.” Read more…
Acording to Talking Points Memo Herman Cain won the Florida P5 straw poll.
What does this say about Rick Perry, if this poll means anything.
Bryan Fischer said that Herman Cain is “Authentically Black” as opposed to Barack Obama who isn’t. We all know that Obama’s
parents, the father black, and the mother is white. But in Fischer’s eyes, he sees it differently. This guy who calls himself a Christian, and is with the American Family Association, is nothing but an inflammatory racist. That is an association I wouldn’t want anything to do with.
