The Caingate Flapdoodle Kerfluffle -- Potomac Fever?

By Kay Daly

Let me see if I have this whole Herman Cain flapdoodle straight. 

For the first twenty-five, thirty years of Mr. Cain's career, which was in the corporate world, there was nary a peep about sexual harassment, a complaint filed or hordes of women running  from his offices screaming in terror about the lecherous man who dwelt within, plotting his next encounter.   Not a peep.

Then he comes to Washington DC in the 1990s and heads up the National Restaurant Association where all of a sudden, according to unnamed sources, "witnesses", Democrats and all kinds of fellow travelers, he is chasing women around his desk.

Makes perfect sense to me.   Clearly what Bill Clinton had was catching.   It is the real Potomac Fever and boy, if only Herman Cain had stayed away from the Beltway this sudden behavioral change would not have struck him.

Cause there is no other logical explanation, right?

    Smear campaign that is all that is going on now. This is the man Obama and all democrats fear. They know that Obama can’t beat him and the race card would be effectively null and void.
     
    IMPEACH OBAMA NOW! ! ! ! !

      oh they’d still play the race card.  They’d call him something truly stimulating like an “oreo” or “uncle tom” sorta thing.  Everything but a man of his own mind.

      But of course, they wouldn’t be the bigots in using those terms right?

      Not sure if you guys saw Cain on FOX just a few days ago.  There was a panel with Krauthammer on it asking Cain a series of questions.  I know you like him but good heavens,  the guy could obfuscate with the best of car salesmen.  “Do tires come with the car or not!?” They were trying to be nice but you could tell that they were really gagging on his round about answers.  I have had enough of the apples & oranges thing too.  So did they.
       
      IF he did have this Clinton Cancer in his closet, only patent mega arrogance could deny him simple reasoning that surely either his Republican opponents or the Democrats/Media would find out and exploit this.  And if this is true, then he should have just admitted it straight up, right away, no BS.  That might have done wonders to prove that we will not get yet another scam artist.  And my Wife was there watching this interview and I asked her what she thought.  Well, we saw the same thing.  She was looking like Kardashien Krauthammer!  Eeeek!  Now I wished that we had not watched!  ;  )
       
      And you are right, The FRAUD in the White House cannot throw down the race card with Cain but this translates into we have to fear and behave a certain way to appease or else.  With Obama’s donation people now not showing up, Hillary getting support, the whole Black support thing faltering, Steve Jobs was right to tell Obama that he was a one term President after talking with him and trying to get Obama to do something positive for business.  That was way before Cain.   We shall see how this boils out one way or another.

      The left cannot stand to see a successful, hard working, intelligent, educated salf made black man. After all, if this happens too often, the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons of this world would have nothing to do.

      Come on now. I have seen many interviews with Herman Cain and the reason folks like yourself don’t like him is because he doesn’t fit the mold of what a politician should say and do and think. He does not dodge questions like most politicians, but answers then directly and to the point.

      Precious, utter feline nonsense per Cain dodging questions!  You have watched interviews but you must have been playing with your cat toys.  He has handled this problem way beyond poorly.  His talk might come out sounding straight forward, granted but he gets tripped up on specifics and hides this tripping with the whole bizarre apple and oranges obfuscations and now this weird Clintonesqe jumble.  
       
      Our new car salesman did the same thing.  Upfront he seemed fine, so believable, so refreshing but the devil was in the details and there we had to chase him down time and again.  At some point, on quality tire switching to low quality cheap ones, I had him and the dealership trapped.  We went ahead with this guy knowing that in our case, we would be NOW treated well lest the whole lucrative scam was exposed and ended.  We were treated well but… .  Kitty person, we do not need “leadership” like this.  He might open your can of human quality tuna but he does not get close to making me a good pie.
       
      And yes, it is a very very simple observation that the Left cannot stand a Conservative Black or Hispanic as they own 97% or so of the who bothers to vote Black vote, time and again and the same per the 60+% of the Hispanic vote.  They want it all in their quest to destroy The Republic that our Founders created.  No gentleman’s duel, this one.  This is why, again, I ask that if Herman Cain knew that there were disturbing skeletons in his closet, he recklessly, foolishly assumed that NO ONE would find and exploit them, Demoncrats or Republican opponents.   At this early stage of the campaign, I would wager that Rick Perry or perhaps Romney are involved.  Perry most likely, as he has most to gain.  It is either, “Yes, I made a human mistake.” if he did, or,  “No, there was NEVER a mistake by me in this regard.  Out right lies…”  If he did not.  Obviously you have not been in a political cat fight.

      Since your post is just filled with sarcastic and silly remarks, I will not waste my time addressing your sillyness.

    Now with all the bad things going on, this useless communist inspired media we now have has to focus on this? First of all, I don’t believe Herman Cain harassed anyone, unless it was to tell them that they need to do a better job. I guess if you say that to some women, they might call it sexual harassment. This whole thing is about getting the conservative black man, which to liberals is very scary. I will support Mr. Cain, at least he is a real conservative.

    One more comment. I believe Mr. Cain is getting some very bad advice on how to handle this. Even if there was something, it would have been over 10 years ago, and has nothing to do with what the country’s problems are that he is trying to fix. He needs to be very straightforward in is answers to the idiots in the media. Maybe even remind them that his candidacy is about fixing problems now, not personal things in the past.

    Catch 22 applies. Mr. Cain, and the National Restaurant Association, are bound by contractual agreement to say nothing. The ostensible complainants are bound by that same agreement.

    Obviously there was a ‘leak’. The only question is by whom. What few ‘facts’, I would prefer the word inuendo, have surfaced are trivial in the extreme. But clearly there is an attempt at defamation of character.

    The Media Motto:

    “Dirty little secrets—dirty little lies,
    We got our dirty little fingers in everybody’s pies—
    We love to cut you down to size—we love dirty laundry.”—Dirty Laundry by Don Henley

    And that sums up perfectly just what the Media in this country is all about—DIRT—particularly when it is inflammatory and defames and destroys anyone with a higher standard than the journalists-turned-tabloid-writers themselves live by.

    First of all, we don’t know if these women even EXIST. We have no idea what the “charges” are.  There’s a reason for that you know.  When an attorney (ambulance chaser) makes veiled remarks, defaming a person without solid details, it has to be because the sleazy lawyer does not want later to be accused of libel (or worse). 
     
    I understand that the perennial feminist lawyer Gloria Allred has now got her nose in this mess which would make it even worse for whomever she is (or is not) representing. Is this her latest attention getting pro bono foray into feminism. I am a woman and find Allred and her ilk disgusting.

    She allegedly has an alleged 4th  ”victim” to present an alleged case against the alleged perpetrator, Herman Cain, who allegedly has sexually harassed an alleged 3 previous “victims”.

    I am still waiting to hear anything that isn’t conjecture.  Some lawyer says he has a client that says this.  Another woman says that this happened 14 years ago but the only people she told was her friends.  This whole situation is long on accusations and short(as in not at all) on verifiable proof of wrong doing.
     
    Is the left/press/republican opponents that afraid of a black man that thinks for himself?  Seriously?
