Just based on polling data, a lot of conservatives will not like this message. Those taking the TPN survey say Cain should stay in the race, 83-17.
Herman Cain has got to go.
I will repeat what I have said earlier. I like Herman Cain. Of all of the candidates, he would probably be my first choice to sit down and have a pizza with. But to quote the famous line from the Godfather, its not personal, its business.
I do not believe Cain’s accusers. There are too many questions about them.
The allegations are not why Cain should leave. The campaign’s response is why he should now withdraw.
According to published reports, the Cain campaign knew about the Politico story TEN DAYS before it was published.
What the hell were they doing?
I can tell you what they were not doing. They were not preparing for this. Just in case anyone missed it, an allegation of sexual harassment could be a game changer. It could seriously damage or even destroy a candidate.
When you have that kind of notice you prepare for the hit. You hire crisis management experts. You get your story together and you create and execute a strategy to deal with the story.
Cain’s campaign did none of that.
Amateurs run the Cain campaign and you cannot have amateurs running a political campaign.
The final straw for me was Mark Block’s appearance on Hannity claiming that the son of one of the accusers, Karen Kraushaar worked at Politico, which originally broke the story.
Oops. No, Josh Kraushaar who had worked at Politico and now works at the National Journal is not only not her son, he is not related to her.
This comes after last week’s spray and pray spread of blame against Rick Perry.
Herman Cain finally did a press conference yesterday. He was strong in the press conference but it was too little too late.
Herman Cain’s selling points are his business background. To steal a line from a TV commercial, he is telling us that his core competency is competency.
No it isn’t!
Herman Cain should have been in a conference room with the senior leadership of his campaign 24 hours into this “crisis” demanding to know from them why the hell they were not ready for the crisis and what they were doing about it?
Ten days in, the Cain campaign is still stumbling around like newly castrated cattle.
Mark Block should have been gone nine days ago. Cain should have a competent team in place by now as well as someone really good at crisis management. So far, it is not there.
If Cain cannot run his own campaign, how is he going to run the country? A few days ago, I would have been willing to accept Cain as the nominee. Cain was not my first choice but I could have easily supported him.
If Cain cannot manage his own campaign, what is he going to do with the country? If he cannot get good people in to handle a crisis like this, who is he going to put in to handle the crisis when that phone in the White House is ringing at 3AM and he is told that Ahmadinejad has a nuclear weapon and is threatening to use it against America?
I like Herman Cain on a personal level, but not as President.
It is time for him to leave the race.
This group sound like they are lock and step with the Republican establishment. Herman Cain is not finished and his real Conservative supporters like myself will back him to the end. If he is not the Republican candidate, I will stay home. Last, stop saying you like Herman Cain because when you believe in the Conservative ideas that he brought about, you support what he represents, not media biased coverage and not small mistakes of trying to simply state your innocents. This just sounds like political inside Washington, no independents!!!
This is incoherent.
I dont think he should leave until perry and romney are completely out.
A word of advice for the floundering Herman Cain. If he wants to be taken seriously, he needs to get rid of the pimp hat. It's not very Presidential and it's not helping him promote the image of a faithful family man who respects women. But it really doesn't matter. He's done!
You make many good points. But, surprisingly enough, you miss many.
You have given up too easily on Bachmann.
You avoid talking about the enormous devastation lunatics of gay movement are causing to this country. Just like your hero - RUSH. You both sure look more and more like "establishment Republicans", watching their mouths VERY carefully, not to offend globalist kamikadze's.
Cain has been wobbly on abortion. This was a warning signal. You missed it.
True conservative is a solid pro-life, pro-marriage and pro-family.
As far as I know Bachmann is the only one who consistently articulates her views in such way.
I do not regret having unsubscribed after you began censoring my "inappropriate" comments about outsourcing federal government, heavily burdened by crowds of clueless freeloaders.
What the heck happened to the free speech, if people like you begin censoring others on public forums?.?
Maybe you need to step down as well ...?
The freedom of speech is protected against infringement by the government. Perhaps you missed that.
You aren't expected to agree with everything Judson, or anyone else for that matter, posts. Feel free to discuss your position and learn to discuss other's positions.
