The Sliming of Herman Cain Begins … Two Women Accused Herman Cain of Inappropriate Behavior & Sexual Harrassment
The following MSM sliming of Herman Cain was not only expected, it was predicted.
The Politico has reported that in the 1990′s Herman Cain was accused by two woman who complained if inappropriate behavior while he was the head of the National Restaurant Association. It is official, the political sliming of Herman Cain has begun. The MSM will do everything possible to destroy a Conservative black man running for office. Let everyone remember that at this point, the story is based on allegations.
During Herman Cain’s tenure as the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, at least two female employees complained to colleagues and senior association officials about inappropriate behavior by Cain, ultimately leaving their jobs at the trade group, multiple sources confirm to POLITICO.
The women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them financial payouts to leave the association. The agreements also included language that bars the women from talking about their departures.
What a shock that the hit piece comes out as Herman Cain edges into the lead for the GOP nomination for 2012. Herman Cain represents a greater threat to Democrats than Sarah Palin did and look how she and her family were savaged. Cain had previously predicted that he was in for a “high-tech lynching”. Ann Coulter agrees, and stated last night, “It’s outrageous the way liberals treat a black conservative. This is another high-tech lynching” (VIDEO) .
But wouldn’t liberals and Democrats still find a racially-based way to attack Cain? They certainly found a way to attack Clarence Thomas, the black, conservative Supreme Court justice.
“They’re going to come after me more viciously than they would a white candidate,” Cain responded. “You’re right. Clarence Thomas. And so, to use Clarence Thomas as an example, I’m ready for the same high-tech lynching that he went through — for the good of this country.” Cain smiled broadly. “I’m ready for the same high-tech lynching.”
However, the thing is as the Gateway Pundit reminds us, it will not matter whether its Herman Cain or any other GOP candidate, the liberal MSM will make every effort to destroy them and aid Obama in gaining reelecting the White House. Imagine if such comments were made of Barack Obama … who ever made them would be called a racist.
Herman Cain Leads Mitt Romney in Republican Presidential Nomination Des Moines Register’s Iowa Poll, 23% to 22%
YES HE CAIN …
The Herman Cain express rolls on. For those that said Herman Cain’s poll numbers were the flavor of the month and he had no staying power, think again. It would appear that Herman Cain’s poll numbers have legs as he heads Mitt Romney in the most recent Des Moines Register’s Iowa Poll for the GOP nomination.
Herman Cain and Mitt Romney top The Des Moines Register’s new Iowa Poll, with the retired pizza executive edging the former Massachusetts governor 23 percent to 22 percent in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
Cain has surged 13 percentage points since the first Iowa Poll of the caucus cycle, conducted in late June. His rise has come despite spending little time in Iowa recently, campaigning here just once since the Aug. 13 Iowa straw poll, where he placed fifth.
As Cain surges, Texas Gov. Rick Perry continues in GOP nomination campaign free-fall as he is now in 5th place in the Iowa poll with only 7%. It is safe to say Perry has fallen and he can’t get up. However, the question still remains whether Cain can translate a lead in a poll to a ground organization in Iowa for individuals to show up for the 2012 Iowa Caucus and vote for him.
YES WE CAIN …
According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, Herman Cain is now in the lead in Iowa among GOP Presidential hopefuls. Cain leads the pack with28% followed by Mitt Romney with 21% and Ron Paul at 10%. As much as Cain has benefited from recent debates, Texas Governor Rick Perry has obviously not. With Perry’s last debate performance, is it any wonder why he has dropped to 7%.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Iowa caucus-goers shows that Cain is in front with 28% followed by former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at 21%. Congressman Ron Paul is a distant third at 10% followed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 9%, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann at 8%, and Texas Governor Rick Perry at 7%. The sixth place finish for Perry is a sharp decline from early September when Perry was the frontrunner both nationally and in Iowa. (To see survey question wording, click here).
Herman Cain is proving to be the People’s champion. As Strata-Sphere states, Cain is turning the Political Industrial Complex on its head these days. Cain is the non-politician running the non-typical politician campaign. What Cain lacks in donation dollars, he more than makes up in charisma and the People’s support. Cain is a breathe of fresh air in a political environment when We the People are tired of politicians … Cain is a man of morals, principles and conservative convictions. No wonder he leads in the polls.
As reported at NRO, Cain is about to make a serious play in Iowa … YES HE CAIN!!!
RUT-ROH, Obama even sinking in the polls among Blacks.
As President Barack Obama falls in every job approval poll, according to the most recent Gallup poll Obama is at an all time low among blacks. Only 80% of blacks said they approved of Barack Obama’s handling of his job. Yikes, this coming from the Obamamessiah who garnered 95% of the black vote in 2008. How racist, they are against Obama. Oh, wait, they are blacks who now oppose Obama. How will Obama’s minions spin this?
Overall, Gallup has Obama underwater in job approval 40%-53%. Even more concerning for Obama is that only 35% of Independents and 26% of Pure Independents approve of Obama’s job as President. As Weasel Zippers states, there is trouble in paradise.
Meanwhile, only 80 percent of blacks told Gallup in the week that ended on Oct. 9 that they approved of the way Obama was handling his job as president. Previously, Obama’s lowest approval among blacks had been the 81 percent he had received in the weeks that ended on March 6 and August 14 of this year.
Obama’s highest all-time approval among blacks was 96 percent–a level it reached during five different weeks of 2009, Obama’s first year in office.
However, the same poll that shows Obama’s freefall in pretty much every demographic has Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain surging in the polls. Is it any wonder why Democrats, the MSM and liberal blacks are attacking Cain as not being black enough? Cain represents Obama and the Democrats greatest threat. How dare a black man be a Conservative Republican. The LEFT has lost their collective minds and fear Cain as they have gone so far in recent days with Cain’s increasing popularity questioning as to attack Cain that he is not liberal or black enough. UNREAL.
In a poll of 1,064 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents conducted Oct. 3-7, 18 percent said they supported Cain for president. That put the former Godfathers Pizza CEO in a close second behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who placed first with 20 percent.
Herman Cain has become such a threat to Obama and Democrats that the liberal, white, state run media feels the need to attack a black man as not being black enough. WOW. Keep it up MSM, you are helping Cain, not hurting him. Lawrence O’Donnell actually accused Cain of dodging the draft when in fact he actually worked for the Navy. However, in typical liberal MSM fashion … Lawrence O’Donnell actually dodged the draft during Vietnam as he avoided it by attending college. How disrespectful could the MSM possibly be? Keep it up MSM … you are making Herman Cain a super star.
Republican Presidential 2012 primary candidate Herman Cain says … African-Americans have been brainwashed into voting for Democrats. When a demographic supports the Democrat party with 95% of the vote, receives in return a record 17% unemployment and still unanimous supports the Democrat party … its hard to argue. Of course, had it been some other republican that made such a comment, they would have been branded as a racist.
The one African-American running for the GOP presidential nomination said Wednesday the black community was ‘brainwashed’ for traditionally siding with liberal politicians.
“African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded, not even considering a conservative point of view,” Godfather’s Pizza executive Herman Cain said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” in an interview airing Wednesday between 5-7 p.m. ET. “I have received some of that same vitriol simply because I am running for the Republican nomination as a conservative. So it’s just brainwashing and people not being open minded, pure and simple.”
Weasel Zippers adds … replace “Jewish’ with “Blacks” and you have the same accurate statement. Agreed.
One has to wonder why Blacks put all of their eggs in one basket, in political terms it makes them irrelevant. You have one party that will not care to target them because they only receive 5% of the vote and you have another, in Democrats, that just take them for granted. At some point, even if its just to send a message to Democrats, blacks need to rethink their vote in order to be relevant. There is a reason why the Independent vote is courted … they are perceived to be open-minded.
