Up for Debate: Is Herman Cain done?

Tuesday, November 29, 2011 at 10:05pm

Presidential candidate Herman Cain — who can't seem to avoid allegations of improper conduct — is "reassessing" his campaign. Is this the end of his campaign? Could it endure? Was it ever a legitimate threat?

Good morning, Nashville!

Every Democrat that I know is hoping that Cain stays in the race and gets the GOP-TP nomination....he would be the easiest candidate for Obama to beat.

I expect that Herman the Sperman will play the race card again and blame his withdrawal from the race on racism, the liberal media and the "Democratic machine". He will admit nothing, he will blame everyone except himself for what has happened. The man could be clinically delusional; either that, or he is a consummate liar.

IMO, Herman Cain is a thoroghly despicable man, hence his popularity with the born-again Christians. But even those mean-spirited and cynical hypocrites are having a hard time sweeping the filth under the rug.

The Koch brothers bet on the dark horse...turned out the "horse" was a pig.

The Sperman is coming to MTSU....get the white women off the streets!

By: dargent7 on 11/30/11 at 4:41

David Letterman was the only one who nailed him to the cross. "All 4 women are lying?", he asked him 5x. Cain sat there and said, "Yes".
Besides his idiotic wife, name one other person who believed his b.s.
The new one, Ms. White, is very coherent and believable.
I just wish she'd tell us any "distinguishing characteristics" about his "johnson" and be done with it. eg., Bill Clinton's accusor, Paula Jones.
See the smile Gingrich gave when told Cain may drop out and Newty would get all his votes?
I don't know which man is a worse whore. Maybe it's a tie.

L'ner: This Sunday the Titans play your Bills in Buffalo.
How about flying some of us "bored nutz" in with that fat postal pension you have?
We'll bring "yogi" and use his "Handicapped" sticker to get a good parking place for the tailgate party.

By: Loner on 11/30/11 at 5:03

The born-agains just naturally congregate around a hypocrite, Darge...'twas ever thus. Newt's a professed Christian and his extramarital dalliances were a few years back, therefore, he has been forgiven by the born-again flock....they can forgive their own e.g. Senator Vitter, Newt and even Herman the Sperman.

The born-agains cannot forgive their perceived enemies...in so doing, they miss the whole point of Christ's message....they emulate the ancient Hebrews, not Christ, the Jewish heretic.

I hope that Ms. White trots out the action photos and videos and puts them up on You Tube. Talk about going viral....like an STD.

Herman's got herpes? Only his pharmacist knows for sure.

By: Loner on 11/30/11 at 5:07

Darge, I spent most of my pension of high quality Cannabis and designer bongs....if I hit the NYS Lotto, I'll spring for the whole gang's tickets...five star hotel too....and white women, yes there will be plenty of white women to go around too....I promise not to grope anybody.

Maybe I'll go to the game....look for a fan with a HOLY WARS SUCK sign in the crowd.

By: Loner on 11/30/11 at 5:17

I lost track; are there five or six white women accusing the pizza guy of pepperoni abuse? I'm waiting for the love child (children?) to come forward...Herman does not appear responsible enough to use birth control or STD prevention regimes....the man is ruled by his penis, or so it would appear.

I hate to brag about it, but my crystal balls predicted this weeks before the story broke...OK, I do love to brag about it. Love my balls.

By: dargent7 on 11/30/11 at 5:19

When you review Gingrich's resume, it makes you want to vomit.
Put aside the 3 marriages.
I remember when he was incensed that Clinton didn't invite him into the cockpit on Air Force One and sit on the lap of the pilot while drinking his bottled milk.
So, he shut the Government down in a hissy fit.
I cannot believe this slug thinks he can win the nomination.

By: dargent7 on 11/30/11 at 5:23

Cain Mathematics 101: 4 women accused the pig of sexual harassment. 3 received a year's pay to leave the association and only #4 lawyered up with Gloria Allred and showed herself on live tv.
She never got anything to shut up and go away like the others who appeared to be mostly black women.
This 5th, Ms. White, who looks half black, will de-rail the "Cain Train".
More like Night Train, the liquor.

By: Loner on 11/30/11 at 5:36

So, the count is now at five...thanks, Darge. I heard that they were all white women...who knows? Maybe he was an equal opportunity womanizer?

Crazy Train?

Didn't Newt call for Clinton to be impeached in the Lewinsky affair? Meanwhile, he's catting around like some kind of double-chinned fat cat with a permanent chubby....what a friggin' hypocrite...perfect choice for the Party of Hypocrisy.

If an extra-marital affair is an impeachable offense, then Newt has demonstrated that he is not made of presidential timber. We do not want or need another Lewinsky affair.

Maybe we should pass a law that only nuns and eunuchs can run for POTUS?

The Tennessean starts the practice tomorrow.
Trying to clean up the joint, I guess.

By: dargent7 on 11/30/11 at 5:44

Yes, L'ner, when Kenneth Star was going after Clinton for getting a BJ in the Oval Office (for the record, I would of stood in), Gingrich was chasing his staffer ( that hideous bottle blonde he's now married to) while married to his 2nd who had stage 3 cancer.
Kinda like Edwards who was boning his videotographer while his wife was fighting uterine cancer.
Add in Rudy Guiliani who's also on #3.
If you engage in this behavior, at least have the common sense to not run for POTUS where everything comes out eventually, and it ain't all good.

By: Funditto on 11/30/11 at 6:42

"Every kiss begins with Cain."

Won't the Tennessean will lose money on this because their site won't get as many hits? I thinks it's a good move to remove anonymity.

USA Today uses Facebook accounts as does San Diego Union.
Some, like The Huffington Post use it, but don't require it.
I can't speak for 'Out & About"'s position on the subject.

By: yogiman on 11/30/11 at 7:11

I believe we are all pretty much alike on the point we all favor our favorites. It's OK for our favorite to screw up, but not the other.

I don't see much difference in the members of Congress today so it won't make much difference who is in the White House. We've almost reached the bottom of the communist hill on our road to Rome.

Stand by, children. 2012 is going to be very very interesting on the political issue if we have an election.

While it appears that a few of the Republican Primary candidates may have
a few extra "Ladies": in their lives, I 've never heard even a mention of an old
girlfriend of the President. Was Michelle the first date he ever had even at an
older age? Which one ask the other out first? Unlike two other frequent posters,
I would have no desire to see videos of any of the candidates with their gals!

By: gdiafante on 11/30/11 at 7:33

I was about to post how ridiculous Yogi's post was, then govskeptic posted. It's a cornucopia of stupidity today. Oh wait, that's everyday.

Sorry to interrupt...continue...

By: dargent7 on 11/30/11 at 7:35

..."Won't make much of a difference who's in the W.H"?
Oh, yeah? The President starts and stops wars. He feeds Congress all his secret data that he squeezed from the CIA.
Bush I & II started 20 years of b.s. in Iraq.
Obama stopped it next month, within 3 years.
You dunces put a Bachmann or a Perry in the W.H., they will start a war with Iran.

By: yogiman on 11/30/11 at 7:37

Next year is going to be interesting from the questions about "Barack Obama"'s proof of birth.

If memory serves me correctly, eleven states came up with the issue of passing a law requiring a candidate to prove their Constitutionality to be placed on their State's ballot and Tennessee was one of them.

So far, I haven't read or heard of one state that has passed such a law. I Wonder why.

If such a law is passed by just one state, Barry can't change the "birth certificate" he finally showed which has been proved by experts to be false.

By: dargent7 on 11/30/11 at 7:38

gov: If a man will lie, bald faced to the American public about sexual affairs, he'll lie about the reasons to go to war, eg., GW Bush. A liar is a liar.
Cain and Gingrich are liars.

By: dargent7 on 11/30/11 at 7:39

Yogi "Tin Foil Hat" Man: That's right. All 535 Congressmen and women are on the take and on Obama's payroll.

By: yogiman on 11/30/11 at 7:43


I'll agree, its good Barry has stopped the one war in only three years 'in office'. I guess it took him so long to stop the Iraq war because he was so busy getting us involved in six others. Of course by executive order only. He doesn't seem to need congressional approval for anything.

What bothers me most is congress letting him get away with it. They don't seem to know the difference between the branches of our government.

By: bfra on 11/30/11 at 7:44

yogi - If such a law is passed by just one state, Barry can't change the "birth certificate" he finally showed which has been proved by experts to be false.
Where is the "PROOF" of this lie, yogi? If you got it flaunt it! So flaunt yogi pogi!

L'ner: Is a BJ upper or lower case?

Answer: Upper case, Darge, it is an acronym and acronyms are always capitalized.

Yeah, Newt's a known hypocrite. That's considered a virtue, not a vice, with the religious right. Then there's those nasty allegations of illegal kickbacks etc. Newt ain't clean....he's got dirt on his hands...it'll all come out.

Newt does not look like he could not pass a stress test on a tread mill. Obama looks like a young jock in comparison.


Mitt Romney's devout LDS connection just does not sit well with the born-agains...internecine bigotry, I suppose....they hate a heretic...and heretical cults.

Maybe, a Savior will arise...at the GOP-TP Convention....could be Rudy Guliani...tanned, rested and vetted....or Jeb Bush...maybe even Sarah Palin?

But, if it's Newt, Obama will win handily. Newt will never be POTUS, IMO.

By: Ingleweird on 11/30/11 at 7:48

Headline should read:

Cain not able to revive campaign

By: dargent7 on 11/30/11 at 7:51

Fact: Obama drew down the Iraqi troops from 175,000 to 13,000.
If McCain got the job, we'd be in there at full throttle and have attacked Iran with ground troops.
Where were you in 2007 and '08 when Obama was running for office?
His B.C. was available on the internet.
BTW, what "six wars" are you taliking about?
Don't answer that. "The Mothership" is on line 1 holding for you.

By: yogiman on 11/30/11 at 7:52


What are you using for a brain? You seem to think all men are liars except Barry Soetoro. Barry has never told a lie? That you obviously believe every word he utters from his teleprompter is the truth.

How "open" is the 'government' he "promised"? Barry Obama is the biggest liar I have ever witnessed in our legislature since I have been grown enough to understand what they were talking about.... bar none, and I go back to Franklin Roosevelt.

And you believe "Barack Obama" is telling the truth in every word that comes out of his mouth? Gimme a break. Surely you know better than that. Or, do you?

gov, no, Obama was a nun before he met Michelle. Didn't you know that!

These women, like Ms. White who needed some spice in her life, are interlopers and gold diggers. Men beware; Loner you and D7 are next. I heard she has a list of "targets".

I think I may have balled Ms. White one night, back in the day...a Boone's Farm Wine-related incident, if I recall.....if I run for office, she'll remind me. Yeah, her face looks familiar....now, if I could just get a good look at her @ss, I'd probably be able to say whether or not it was her that night....names and faces, I forget...I remember a shapely @ss however.

By: Loner on 11/30/11 at 8:03

LOL, Ingleweird.

By: yogiman on 11/30/11 at 8:03


That "birth certificate" being shown was a 'Certification of Live Birth'. Not a birth certificate. If you could have read it, it only showed the date and time of his birth, his mother's maiden name and her race as Caucasian and his father's name and his race as African.

I'll repeat this question as I have asked before: When did African become a race. If you was born and big enough to know what people were called you would know the black people were called Negro as the race of the black people then.

And also why did he constantly say the Hawaiian government would not allow him to show his official birth certificate? Could it be because he didn't have one?

Other than "Barack Obama" do you know of one person the government ever refused their birth certificate?

By: dargent7 on 11/30/11 at 8:18

Yogi: Don't ever join the Debate Team or go on Jeopardy!
Name ONE person, Congressman, or President that was ever asked to show their Birth Cert.?
And my B.C. says, "Certificate of Live Birth". All states have their own "Header".
And in 1961, "blacks" were still "African". It's a box you check. I think his mommy knew he wouldn't pass for the "White" box.
They didn't become African-Americans until after the civil right's movement.
Now you Tin Foil's want his college transcripts?
Name one President, Congressman who was asked for their transcripts.

By: BenDover on 11/30/11 at 8:22

If the Hermanator isn't guilty then someone sure is going out of his / her way to line up a case against him. His response to the scandal and other issue disqualify him in my mind more than the scandal itself. Either he's guilty and lying or he's wholly inept at damage control. Either one is enough to side-line him.

By: BenDover on 11/30/11 at 8:27

Titans @ Bills this weekend? What's the line?

When you're in a gas station, you keep pumping gas until your take is full. Mine's not filled so far. I can't get any intelligent 'pumpers' to convince me my tank is full.

By: BigPapa on 11/30/11 at 8:35

Does anyone check these guys out before they run? It doesn't seem that difficult to figure stuff like this out. It's like Cain was really slick about hiding his "situations".

He should be done and if he were anything more than an ego maniac he would have dropped out by now.

By: bfra on 11/30/11 at 8:36

yogi - Are you just now figuring that out? Everyone else has known that, from your 1st. comment!

By: yogiman on 11/30/11 at 8:38

Yes, dargent7,

In 1961 the blacks were African by heritage, but that was not known as their race. And they didn't become African-Americans when LBJ (who was known as the biggest racist in the USA back then) got that anti-segregation law passed. They became Afra-Americans for several years then changed their "name" to Afro-Americans. After a few more years they then became African-Americans. They've held that 'title' 'til today.

Hopefully, one of these days they will become plain damned ole Americans.

By: yogiman on 11/30/11 at 8:45


Should Cain drop our of the race because of accusations, even though no proof has been offered.

Was it because Bill Clinton was already in office when his proven "under the desk" accusation was made. And why was the girl claimed to be a liar until she proved her argument?

When Clinton was impeached for his lies, why didn't he gracefully resign as others had done before him? A bigger question then was; Why did Congress not throw him out for his lies?

By: BenDover on 11/30/11 at 8:45

Geezzz yogi. wouldn't it be a lot simpler to throw Obama out because his left-wing policies have destroyed the economy and his 'smart' diplomacy has set the whole world afire?

By: yogiman on 11/30/11 at 8:46


What are you 'talking' about? Or don't you know?

All you seem to be able to do is open your mouth and something you want to hear will come out as a shout.

By: yogiman on 11/30/11 at 8:49

Sorry, BenDover,

But Barry seems to have too many left-wingers in congress with him. And by that, I mean on both sides of the aisle.

By: bfra on 11/30/11 at 9:17

yogi - With you the word "PROOF" is a shout, because you never have any!

By: yogiman on 11/30/11 at 9:29


In answer to your 7:44 question on proof of his "lie". The "birth certificate" was examined by several computer experts.

If you was alive in 1961, you should know the typewrite was the common piece of equipment used to 'type' a legal form. They only had two forms of each letter on that typewriter; Capital and small letter forms, and you didn't have the many different characters of the letters. The experts found many different 'types' of letters in many different words in Barry's "birth certificate".

Which still brings the question: Why did he refuse to show "it" using his "excuse" until he did one week before the book "Where's The Birth Certificate?" was published?

By: yogiman on 11/30/11 at 9:36


It seems all you and your fellow co-posters have to do while at work is make comments on this site. When you got off "work" later in the day you go home. You have not followed the political issue, probably your entire lives. You obviously don't know who is sitting in the Oval Office taking our nation into communism, yet you think you know it all.

As I stated when I come onto the site, I'm not a master on this computer industry. I wish I was. I could then refer you to every iota of knowledge I have received on this issue.

But then, would it really matter with you in your line of thinking? I doubt it.
