For Herman Cain, the campaign all but over
ATLANTA (AP) – Herman Cain is still campaigning for president. But by most measures, his White House bid is all but over. His standing in polls is cratering. Supporters are wavering if not fleeing. Fundraising is suffering.
And, these days, the former pizza company executive is less a serious candidate than the butt of late-night comedy jokes after a string of accusations of sexually inappropriate behavior and, now, an allegation of a 13-yearlong extramarital affair.
“His chance at winning the presidency are effectively zero,” said Dave Welch, a Republican strategist who worked on both of John McCain’s presidential bids.
And Republican strategist Kellyanne Conway said: “It’s the daily dose of the wince-and-cringe factor that leaves people wondering what could be coming next,”

For Herman Cain, the campaign all but over
If Herman Cain doesn’t withdraw and skulk away to anonymity, I will be totally shocked!
The accusations of sexual harassment and the alleged 13 year long affair aside, Herman Cain has no business even considering a run for the highest office in the land. Cain is not qualified to be the President of the United States.
His supporters need to wake up and take a look at what electing Barack Hussein Obama, a person with no discernible background or qualifications, has done for America.
Just because Cain managed a pizza company does NOT make him a person qualified to be President of the United States. The USA isn’t a pizzeria, and lets face facts folks, no matter how big or how successful Godfathers Pizza may have been, the management of that concern gave Herman Cain absolutely NO experience in worldly matters.
Herman Cain needs major lessons in geography, government, civics, diplomacy and a very heavy dose of ENGLISH and some speech therapy would help too.
I can’t speak for others, but as for me, the manner in which Herman Cain speaks is an embarrassment to this nation and our way of life. Ebonics is NOT the language of America and it’s NOT what an American President needs to speak when conducting the business of the American people.
Deez (these), dem (them), doze (those), dat (that), den (then), dere (there), wif (with), dey (they), doe (door), de (the) as in *close de doe*, *he be*, *dey be* and the like, I find that manner of speech to be totally repulsive.
I do not exaggerate my friends, I am embarrassed when I hear Herman Cain speaking his fluent Ebonics. I know that Cain has an education, I know he holds more than one degree, be that as it may, speaking Ebonics makes Herman Cain sound like an ignorant, low-born individual, and that will cause the United States to suffer even more loss of face in the eyes of the world. The election of another buffoon is something we can’t afford.
Herman Cain also has a propensity to speak in the Third Person, that is something else that can’t be allowed from a individual wishing to become The President.
Cain may indeed have a good education, a strong background in business and a winning personality, according to some, but Cain doesn’t show those qualities in his public persona.
Maybe I’m a snob, some may even call it racist, but the fact that Cain speaks in 3rd person Ebonics, as a 1st language, that, in and of itself, makes him far less than desirable to me. I just can’t support anyone that talks like a street pimp and wants to be MY President.
Dey might bees willin’ ta lets ya gets by wif dat Ebonics stuff at Da National Restaurant ‘sociation, but dat stuff doan fly in da real wurl.
I remember when I was in school in the late 1960’s, my sister and one of our cousins had a teacher that was Black and SHE (the teacher) spoke Ebonics. This was the first year that we had forced integration in Mansfield, Louisiana and it was not going all that well.
Long story short, this was in Elementary school and there was a spelling test that day, one of the words was DOOR. A simple enough word, one would think, unless the teacher is speaking Ebonics and the word SHE said was, what some kids thought, was DOUGH or DOE.
Dough was a logical choice given that back then many of our Mothers baked, and DOE was just as much a logical choice, we were *country kids* and we ALL hunted and fished, and a DOE was a female deer.
Some of the parents were outraged that the word was marked as incorrect on the test and that because of this, some of the best spellers in class had made less than a 100% on the test.
There was a confrontation with this teacher and the question was asked, “Just how in the hell do YOU spell this word?”
I am not embellishing in ANY way, the teacher looked at those parents and said, “I doan knows what da problem is, da word is DOUGH, jes lak dat DOUGH dat y’all walked in ta gets in ta dis class room. Dough…”
If I am lying may lightening strike me dead and fry my computer!
OK, I’m still here. 😛
Ebonics is a plague on this nation and on those that speak it, either by choice or through sheer ignorance. I would like to think that Herman Cain is not that ignorant.
I may be wrong…
