Herman Cain Reassessing Campaign
Edited on Tue Nov-29-11 10:59 AM by brooklynite
Source: ABC

Herman Cains chief of staff Mark Block confirmed to ABC News that the candidate told his senior staff this morning hes reassessing whether to stay in the race, as reported by the National Review.

Cain said that hell make his final decision over the next several days, according to the National Review.

Cains deputy campaign manager, Linda Hansen, told ABC News that on the conference call Tuesday morning, Mr. Cain told staff simply that, just as every time significant events occur, a reassessment is prudent.

A good businessman looks at the entire landscape before making decisions, Hansen said. He is, and has been, committed to promoting the issues and solutions that will make this nation stronger. Nothing about that has changed.

4. When he was deciding to run
was there a sit down meeting with his campaign staff where he was asked: "is there anything in your past that is going to derail this candidacy?"

Did he answer "no"?

What are these idiots thinking?

6. I would use the phrase "campaign staff" gingerly...
I don't think he went out to hire real political pros; more likely he surrounded himself with staff from his personal business who were already used to his "colorful" quirks...

13. Didn't the Koch brothers recruit him?
If so, I'm sure they didn't think about sexual harassment issues. They just saw a puppet they could play with on the national stage.

the shitheads from the racism charge. They didn't give a flying fuck what this clown had in his trunk.

43. Perhaps that is exactly they wanted
A subconscious tranfer of negative racial stereotypes(the hyper sexualized black male) from Cain to the President that would alter voting patterns in the general election.

Nothing has shown me that the Kochs simply rain money without purpose, look at who and how they bought at the state level.

42. Right so now nearly 20 years later
these idiots still don't understand that op-research will find every bimbo in your life and trot her out for you to disavow. This is not 1992. It is 2011.

As I stated upthread, the Clown Cain Campaign was a joke (probably one that Cain was not in on) who's only purpose was to eliminate the racism charge from being in play against the republican party.

The "extemporaneous" pop culture references were just something that DOES NOT happen in nature! :rofl: ESPECIALLY if you got the guy who minted gold coins with his head on it as a "giveaway" during his failed presidential campaign bankrolling you!

Ah, the eccentricities of the berwealthy! :rofl:

8. How Many Lives Has Cain Ruined
In his selfish conquests? And his first response is to always go looking for the dirt on others. Cain is a poster boy for what is wrong in America. No values, no ethics, no morals and a complete jerk to boot. Don' let the door hit you in the a$$ on your way out.

11. Horny Herman is just guilty of the same shit the Newtster pulled.
At least Hermster's wife wasn't dying of cancer...

Herman needs to dial up that Gawd that forgave Dave Vitter and pull himself up by his jock strap.

12. The Cain Mutiny
A chick here, a chick there, a chick for a while here and various dalliances here and there. Why's a guy got to run for the hills just because he's a bought-and-paid-for corporate mouthpiece, a weasely coward and serially selfish sex-thug?

It's so unfair.

Add to that that his policies would be ruinous to the entire world, and it's just another Clarence Thomas lynching that's part of the liberal conspiracy.

The world just wasn't enlightened enough to accept his transcendent genius.

BYE!!!

25. I really doubt he was ever serious about running
and probably was very surprised when people flocked to him. HIs idiotic ego led him to believe this meant that he actually is qualified and has a chance, rather than the reality that the teabaggers are so incredibly stupid....and they also hate mitt.

28. Cain tells staff he's reassessing campaign
Source: MSNBC

Herman Cain told senior campaign staff members Tuesday that he's "reassessing" his campaign in the wake of a fresh allegation that he engaged in a 13-year-long extramarital affair.

Steve Grubbs, the candidate's Iowa campaign chairman, confirms to NBC News that Cain said he's taking a step back, much as he did after his finish in the Ames Straw Poll in August, to evaluate the direction of his campaign. The call included Cain's 50 state directors, and the reassessment will occur over the next two days.

This reassessment coincides with a new allegation from Ginger White, an Atlanta woman who says that she and Cain engaged in an affair for well over a decade, one that ended only recently. Cain has denied the affair.

Cain reiterated his claim, made yesterday in reaction to the new allegation, that White was simply a friend who he had sought to help financially, and that nothing inappropriate had happened between the two of them.
