Herman Cain for President? I think NOT!

Herman Cain for President? I think NOT!

Is this the man that YOU want to see as President of the United States?

If you answered YES, I have to ask; are you out of your freaking mind?

If all of the below isn’t enough to persuade you to tell Herman Cain to go away:

GOP Presidential candidate Herman Cain unaware China has nukes, Herman Cain: The Attacks On Me Are Racially Motivated, Herman Cain Accuser Got a Year’s Salary in Severance Pay, Cain blames media, Perry for furor, Cain camp points to Perry for harassment leak and this, Cain Camp Accuses Perry Campaign of Leaking Sexual Harassment Claims

Maybe this next story will.

Cain’s political demise: The end of a charming outsider

By Jennifer Rubin

Herman Cain has plainly lost the image of a jovial, savvy business executive. He’s a mess. New allegations regarding his harassment cases come out every few hours, the latest suggesting that the harassment complaints were more serious — and should have been more memorable (shocking, I know) — than Cain has let on.

Politico tells us that one of the women “recounted her allegations against Cain to two members of the . . . [National Restaurant Association’s] board — sources who include an acquaintance of the woman’s and a person who attended the restaurant association meeting at which the woman lodged her complaint. The sources say the woman told them Cain invited her to his hotel room at the event, and that both the context and the way Cain phrased the invitation made her feel extremely uncomfortable, even incensed.”

Now, he’s making the ludicrous suggestion that he’s considering suing Politico. Most armchair lawyers know that truth is a defense to defamation; in this case, Cain’s admitting to the central aspects of Politico’s stories would make him a favorable witness for Politico, I suppose. Keep in mind that, in a lawsuit, Cain would be deposed under oath. Now, that’d be a real boost to his dying campaign. More than anything else, this loopy suggestion shows the emotional desperation and lack of rational judgment that we’ve now come to expect from his campaign.

Curt Anderson, however, does seem to have grounds for a suit against someone. The former Cain aide and now a supporter of Texas Gov. Rick Perry has been accused of letting the story out. The Post reports: “On Sean Hannity’s radio show Thursday, Cain insisted that there was a connection between Perry adviser Curt Anderson and Politico. Anderson advised Cain during his 2004 U.S. Senate bid. . . . Cain’s statement completely contradicts the assertions of [campaign chief of staff Mark] Block, who stated Thursday that he no longer believes the source of the leak was Anderson.” I guess in Anderson v. Cain, Anderson can call Block to the stand.

Forget the presidency at this point. Is there anyone who would hire Cain as CEO of a pizza company at this point?

His ability to conduct a semblance of a normal campaign has been wrecked. His own behavior — from the changing stories to the unsubstantiated allegations to the employment of a completely incompetent chief of staff — really renders any questions about the underlying sexual harassment allegations moot.

His poor wife decided not to go on Fox News for an interview. One suspects Cain has not been “forgetting to mention” things only in public.

Now, Cain could stay in the race, I suppose, and turn each debate and appearance into a three-ring circus. He could risk losing all the goodwill and future book sales he’s earned up to now. He could continue to inflict humiliation on his family and his supporters, making a great number of his defenders look like dopes. But a smart business guy in control of himself and in command of the situation would realize the jig is up and any future public career depends on the disappearance/atonement/revival pattern that has characterized so many careers (including his current opponent Newt Gingrich.) A decent and disciplined man would not put his political party through this ordeal.

So you figure he’s going to stay in the race, huh? Me, too.

Cain’s political demise: The end of a charming outsider

It’s all tumbling down on Herman Cain, and it’s HIS fault, no one else.

This is what strikes me as the most STRANGE part though; in all of this Herman Cain brouhaha, from Politico, untold numbers of bloggers, much media, lame-stream and otherwise, and from many on Facebook and other social media, no where have I seen so much as ONE comment or post that alludes to Herman Cain’s RACE being the reason he is now taken to task.

So far, the ONLY one to throw THE RACE CARD has been Ol’ Hermie himself. That RACE CARD thing is all the reason I need to NEVER support Herman Cain. Just sayin’…
