Cain to make 'major announcement' Saturday
Source: MSNBC

Alfredo Ortiz, a Georgia-based press secretary with the Herman Cain campaign tells NBC News that Herman Cain will make a "major announcement" tomorrow in Atlanta at his new campaign office in DeKalb County.

Ortiz would not allude to the nature of the announcement other than to say it is a "major announcement."

Cain has been the subject of media scrutiny for weeks, sparked by an Oct. 31 story in Politico reporting that the National Restaurant Association had settled sexual harassment claims brought by two women.

He's going to leave the campaign trail to spend less time with his family...

...funny!

"Herb", too bad you just could not keep it in your pants...you would have been
a great side show for the GOPBagger Clown Car.

If you do leave...WHO will you give the Kiss of Death support to????

hehe

p.s...I SURE hope your wife leaves your ass.

14. He's got to be crying--he'll lose that Secret Service detail he likely doesn't really need...
he probably got it so his girlfriend Ginger couldn't go snuggling up to him at his campaign appearances--hell hath no fury, and all that.

And then, there's the MATCHING FUNDS that kick in come January...you know how the rich are, they like getting richer, so he'd probably love a crack at a nice big pile of Little People's Money.

2. Probably!
We all know the dude is toast. And in about six months, Mrs. Cain will be hiring a good attorney, and filing for divorce.

4. He's one of those rare candidates who's gone from being totally unqualified for the job . . .
to being even less qualified than when he started.

Hats off to Herman, beaten by his own Cain. He proved himself less than Abel.

22. Heh. If he'd stuck to beating his own Cain, he wouldn't be in this mess.

7. CEO of Self . . . delusion
I think it was Chris Matthews yesterday who said when you have to have a "meeting" with your wife you are in deep shit (well, that last part was my interpretation)

9. Hopefully, Mrs Cain will have a major announcement of her own
to explain that strange item she has hanging from her belt.

11. The fact that he's making it tomorow speaks for itself.
Edited on Fri Dec-02-11 02:28 PM by rocktivity
Mrs. Cain might also be the real reason why he asked for Secret Service protection.

13. He's going to name all of the women
he's groped, propositioned, or had an affair with, including all one-night stands, and they will all endorse him. He's going to use the "look ahead, not to the past" mantra that Obama used so effectively.








Please don't anyone think I'm actually serious.

19. Cain wins just with the free publicity for the next year. The Kochs win with free publicity
for a flat tax for the next year.
