Herman Cain and His What " Is" Is

Herman Cain has got some real problems on his hands this time. The Fox 5 Reporter from Atlanta talked to Shep Smith at 7:00 tonight and he tells Shep that there were 61 calls in and out between the woman (Ginger White) and Herman Cain's private cell phone according to billing records. The reporter calls the number and Herman Cain calls back and talks to this reporter from Fox 5.


Wild Thing's comment......

The last time this stuff came out regarding Cain, true or not, Cain chose to blame Rick Perry directly and then also Perry's team. I went into my attack mode on Cain because I will not tolerate lies like that. This time......... I will wait again to see how Cain handles this before I pounce on him. That is as fair as I can be about Cain.

The person I do feel sorry for or persons are his wife and family. His wife always voted democrat which is a bummer but all the same this is about a marriage so I do feel sorry for her.

One other thiing.....The station also released a statement from Cain's attorney, Lin Wood, who said the allegations of "private, alleged consensual conduct between adults" is not "not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public."

If that is the best... denial that a $600 an hour lawyer can issue, then I'd have to say that this story has legs. There are telephone records and text message records.Cain set himself up when he claimed there were no skeletons in his closet.

For me however, the biggest thing about Cain that I just will never think of him as Presidential are three things.

1. his using the race card, and that was all on his own, no one forced him to as they say go there.

2. the constant ad lingo speak he does. sorry but I do not want my president to be sitting with heads of State and speaking in ad lingo.

3. his total lack of knowledge about so many things, including foreign policy and no desire to even try to learn in preparation of his run for president. His constant way he refers to getting advisors omg never in my life have I seen that from a candidate on either side before. It is really bad.

Something I don't understand. If I call and text a woman who isn't my wife, then that means I'm having an affair with her? If this affair is true, what did this woman hope to gain by coming out with this? I assume she cared about him so why destroy him? I'd like to see the money trail in this.

Cain lost it with me when he didn't support Perry on that stupid rock thing and when he blamed him for the sexual harassment accusations. As far as the other candidates, Perry has been the only one to support Cain during those accusations.

This whole Cain thing is very odd. If Cain did just part of what he is accused of, how did he think he could keep it quiet while he ran for president? Maybe he thought he could skate like Bill C. or that he would not be vetted as obamaa wasn't. Only he knows.

And these women piling on seems to lose some validity. Are they all opportunists? One definitely seems to be. Why did they not come forward when Cain ran for the US Senate? I smells money and claim to fame.

At any rate, Cain has to be finished. I just don't see how he can concentrate on campaigning or bring in the funds he needs. Even before these sex allegations Cain had trouble handling questions and knowing facts. He needs to completely bow out of the race and try to salvage his reputation.
