Posted in: Cain says he won't be forced out of White House race by sex scandal claims See in context

One of Cain's accusers, a serial 'victim' of 'harassment' it appears, lives in the same building as David Axelrod, the guy who basically installed Obama in the WH. Had a campaigning John Edwards been accused in 04 by a neighbor of Karl Rove's we can all imagine the liberal hysteria that would have occasioned.

You couldn't tie William Ayers in there too? What? No Rev. Wright? You are really off you're game. Weak. Why don't you go back to stalking. That was almost funner.

Mitt Romney's religion should have no bearing on this presidential race. Mitt Romney's inability to stick to a position is what should be brought to bear in this presidential race.

This would be a good hitch.

I don't think the Marines are going to have a hard time finding volunteers to go to Australia. The Navy sure doesn't.

This should really energize the economy of Darwin, which if memory serves, could use it. As was stated upthread, Darwin doesn't have the greatest of nightlife. The infusion of the Marines will change that and the local housing economy should really benefit as well as Uncle Sam always pays premium rent.

Let's just say that I'm old enough to have really, really, really wanted to see Eddie host.....

While I'm not 3 reallys worth, I wanted to see Eddie host too.

An interesting conversation came up about Eddie Murphy a few months ago on ESPN. He's the only Murphy you can think of that doesn't go by "Murph."

Wait a minute here. I just tried to give Sioux Chief a thumbs up, Good. No matter how I tried, I couldn't. But when I tried to give him a thumb's down, it gave him TWO thumbs down.

arrestpaul,

They can make their statements and Cain can then respond to those statements.

That is exactly what is happening.

PussinBoots,

Ask nicely and ye shall receive:

If the Restaurant Association did a settlement I wasn’t even aware of it and I hope it wasn’t for much because nothing happened,” Cain told Fox.

Later on...

“Maybe three months’ salary. I don’t remember. It might have been two months,” he sold Van Susteren. “I do remember my general counsel saying we didn’t pay all of the money they demanded.”

That is the most egregious case.

This is all orchestrated to help Obama.

Another genius, who like yokohamarider has this all figured out. Obama used his time machine to back to the early 1990s to convince a bunch of women to file sexual harassment suits against Herman Cain so that they could use those suits against Herman in the future when Herman runs for president. It's as plain as the Kenyan ink on Obama's birth certificate!

You sure have Obama and his evil agenda pegged. Probably from spending every waking hour obsessing about the man.

He may not be forced out of the race but his campaign is done. Herman has changed his story too much and attacked the victim too much.

He keeps this up, he'll lose what little of the women's vote he now has.

Taka313 Cain never blamed this on Mitt Romney. Where did you get that?

No, No, no, no. yokohama, please do keep up.

(To the tune) The Cain blamed it on the....Perry Camp. The Perry Camp blamed on the....Romney Camp and the Romney Camp's connected to the...knee bone!

There's a long line of blame. But we both know it was that damned Obama and his time machine that's really to blame.

I stand by my contention that the Obama is scared to death of the prospect of having to run against Cain because it neutralizes their ability to pull out the race card - Obama's only weapon.

Again, so what does Obama do? He goes back in time to the early 1990s, convinces 3 women to file sexual harassment suits against Herman Cain, then return to 2011 to reap the reward of Herman Cain blaming the whole thing on Mitt Romney when the women come forward wanting to clear their names from slanderous accusations.

I'll tell you what, if you think Obama is capable of setting all of that up, you ought to vote for the man based on his skills alone!

This guy is a freaking Jedi, man.

And...FIRST president to master time travel.

That alone gets my vote. Just sayin.

I think you meant to say the US Navy teaches its forecasters that some degree of global warming is detectable.

Considering one of us has graduated through the course with honors and the other of us is not smart enough to get into the program, I think I meant to say what I meant to say, thank you.

Weather forecasters are taught that the climate is changing and that we can expect more convective severe weather and more mesoscale weather events due to global warming.

@Darrin, It should mean something to you. The U.S. Navy/Air Force/Marine Weather Forecasting school is considered one of the best places in the world to be educated to be a weather forecaster. It's up there with the University of Wisconsin and Texas A&M.

@Spidapig, The US Navy has gone a long ways to become a lot more green. I'm ashamed to admit it, but in the old days, we used to simply dump all our trash overboard. We no longer do that. To cut down on fuel costs, the US Navy utilizes OTSR, Optimum Track Ship Routing (my old job) to route ships around areas of high seas and high winds that could damage the ship or delay them (causing them to burn more fuel). Those are just a couple. Actually, sailwind would be a better person here at JT to talk to about this. He works in the environmental field.

Superlib,

Who has a discussion with their 13-year old son about having their genitals grouped, then takes his advice on what should be done?

I've already had a talk with my 13 year old about sex and how to treat women and believe it or not, I've taken my son's advice on matters before too. He's quite insightful for 13.

But, I totally agree with you that working with that hiring Allread was suspect but suspect only. I'm giving her the same amount of leeway I gave Herman. Until I see more that says she's in it for the money, I'll take her at her word. And even if she IS in it for the money, does that mean that Herman Cain is innocent? They may both be dirty, for all we know.

I'm just not going to automatically vilify her for hiring a lawyer.

Superlib, I had crafted a very thought out response that the internet gods ate. So, this time you'll have to endure the Crib notes version.

I think she stayed quiet because she knew what would happen to her when she did go public. See: above your post. She stated yesterday on CNN that it was on the urging of her 13 year old son, that she was coming forward. He had backed her into a moral corner to do the right thing. Perhaps speculation to follow - she felt a moral responsibility to come forward despite her desire to remain quiet? Perhaps BECAUSE Herman is running for president, she felt she had to come forward. Had he not run for office, perhaps again, more speculation to follow - she would have stayed quiet forever. We don't know.

Whether you choose to believe that is entirely up to you. I gave Herman the benefit of the doubt, because of how he professes his religion, until he started to change his story. And that is something we know for a fact. In the early going, Herman changed his story. None of the women have changed their story. None of them have asked for any money. Herman's defenders would say don't accuse him without evidence to the contrary. I'm just asking that these women (as in plural, and I do think that counts for something here) be afforded that same luxury.

Fair enough?

When one has to rant on and on about how black one is and where people totally unrelated to the story went to college, and "Uncle Toms" I start to think they don't have a decent argument in which to defend Herman from these allegations. I know if were Herman, these are not the people I would want representing me.

I'd want my A-Team. Where's the smoking guy?

Triumvere,

I did a little researching and you are correct. In fact, polygraphs are known to give many false positives so yeah, a polygraph may not be a good idea after all.

Americans are waking up to the fact that these attacks are being conveniently orchestrated to knock a "real" black man off the ticket. You see, Obama's camp is terrified at the thought of black Americans hearing Herman Cain's message of hard work, self reliance and responsibility, which is the antithesis to the Democratic slave plantation, which is to keep blacks dependent on the government. And to make it worse for Obama, they won't be able to use the race card when it's a pure black man as the opponent. That fact totally neuters Obama. He's got nothing but the race card because his record on the economy and foreign policy is a disaster.

SO...because Obama is worried that he won't be able to play the race card in 2012, went back in time, had 3 women file complaints against Herman Cain in the 1990s, so that, in the future, when Herman Cain runs for president, Obama can use these women against Herman. It's as plainer than the Kenyan ink on Obama's birth certificate!. That evil manipulating bastard!

The U.S. Navy teaches that global warming is occurring to its weather forecasters. Why? Because the U.S. Navy has a vested interest in having good weathermen to keep their ships out of hazardous weather, so they tend to stick to the facts.

You know, that uber-leftie environmental organization. The U.S. Navy.

You know, I wonder why Herman hasn't asked for a polygraph test.

The falsely accused ALWAYS ask for a lie detector test.

If I was innocently accused of a crime, I would be looking at every possible avenue to clear my name.

The first thing I would do is ask for a polygraph test. Funny Herman hasn't thought of that.

Perhaps there's a reason. No matter what it is, it's not good.

Posted in: Republican candidate Cain denies report of sexual harassment See in context

Herman Cain was just on CNN and he said, "There is not an ounce of truth to these allegations."

That got me to thinking. Whenever someone is falsely accused of a crime, what is the first thing they ask for?

A: A lie detector test.

If there isn't an "ounce of truth to these allegations" then Herman should ask for a lie detector test. In fact, I'm going to write his campaign and suggest they do just that. If Herman is clean, I would think he would jump at the chance to take a polygraph test to clear his name.

Funny he hasn't thought of it already.

Perhaps he's guilty or not too smart. Neither a president makes.

Well, I had no idea how Herman's 15 minutes were going to end up, but after Trump had his 15 min., Bachmann had her 15 minutes, Perry, etc., I thought it was a safe bet that Herman wouldn't last either.

Anyway, Herman has come up in the office today and I heard 2 people use the same argument that I thought was really weird. If only one woman comes forward, No. No chance. He's innocent. Not until there's 4 do they finally come around.

Assuming that opinion shared to me isn't completely unique to my office, I really feel bad for the first woman to come forward.

You know, a lot of people have been whining, "what took these women so long to come forward?"

But the moment they knew anything about Sharon Bielek, they started in with character assassination.

And they wonder why these women waited so long. How stupid could you be?

I'm sure they were just racing to have their lives raked over the coals to save the reputation of a corporate CEO.
