Is Cain Gone?

The rise and fall in the political arena is usually marked by fast, meteoric climbs to the top and even faster plunges into the abyss of no return.  Herman Cain is finding that out first hand.  He was the darling of the GOP for almost a month before the allegations of sexual impropriety began to surface.  His responses to those charges was immediate and consistent, “I did not do it.”  And he almost had most Americans believing him.  But like John Edwards and Bill Clinton before him the other shoe was destined to finally drop.  For Herman Cain that shoe is named “Ginger White” and that shoe dropped on ABC’s “Good Morning America” with a deafening “thud.”

According to Ms. White, it appears Herman Cain and her had been having an “on again/off again” affair for some 13 years.  Cain’s response to these allegations,

“I do know Ms. White. I have helped her financially at times over the past few years, just as I have helped many friends and acquaintances throughout the years. I thought Ms. White was a friend in need of a supportive hand to better her life. Ms. White has made it apparent that she was abusing the friendship.”

Ms. White went on to say in that interview..

“I can’t imagine waking up one morning and deciding to come out with this if this was not true,” she told ABC. “This has been a very difficult situation for myself, for my family and it’s nothing that I am proud of.  So far I have been absolutely humiliated, embarrassed.”

But evidently not so humiliated or embarrassed after all she did appear on “Good Morning America” and proceeded to tell America and the world about the alleged affair.  She said it was not about the money but her actions say something different.

Are the allegations true?   If I were a betting man I would tell u to bet the farm on it.  Will this be the end of Herman Cain and his 9-9-9 plan?  Well it depends who you talk to.  The Cain camp has released a statement telling the media that Cain is reassessing the direction of his campaign.  Most feel that as soon as the funding dries up the one time pizza CEO will drop out, possibly even before the Iowa Caucuses in January.  I think he will pull out of the running within the next ten days. 

So what appeared to be a breath of fresh air in the political arena has turned out to be nothing more than the same, stale, recycled air that we all have been breathing for decades.  Maybe Diogenes needs to put his lamp out and end his quest, at least in the political world.   Well that’s one down and six to go.

    Ms. White, admittedly broke, several liens, tax, rent and personal problems…now can afford a lawyer? Is this attorney acting on a “pro bono” basis? Not on your sweet “patootie.” Greed is the game, “what’s in it for me” is the name.

    Simple. Mr. Cain’s compassion is being dissected, minced and diced into something nefarious, crooked, ill-conceived and morally reprehensible.

    In America, compassion can only occur when expected payback is guaranteed. So, in Mr. Cain’s case, he should’ve written a contract with all those he helped, either monetarily, employment or otherwise. Stated the goal, expected outcome and future remuneration for his “compassion.”

    Now, in America, “compassion” becomes a marketable skill set. One would surmise Mr. Cain’s skill set was above average, judging from the number of people coming forth, seeking monetary gains from his “compassionate” skill set.

    Strange, not too much different than another historical figure having these same “compassionate” skill sets…and he was nailed to the cross. Mr. Cain will be nailed to the cross, too. Sad. Vote 2012. Bachmann/Palin is the ticket. God Bless America.

    They are raising “Cain” over Cain. Why? Please read “Christians will do Battle?”

    http://www.hollywoodrepublican.net/2011/08/christians-will-do-battle/

    And pledge our “mutually pledging to “each other” our lives, fortunes and sacred honor?” Are we the summer soldiers and the sunshine patriots who will, in a crisis, shrink from the service of their country, convictions and beliefs” or are we something else?”

    “The people have a right, an indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge – I mean of the character and conduct of their rulers”. John Adams.

    The problem is simple. Are we easily swayed in our judgment of those who once earned and deserve our loyalty?

    Can we be loyal until loyalty is no longer deserved; otherwise…we are cowards that shrink at the first sign of difficulty. Loyalty is not a slave to infallibility. Fallible we all are and experience can make us weaker or stronger.

    In the final analysis “Cain” will be no more “Imperfect” than President Obama is “Perfect” morally. There is a very important position in a new administration for each and every one of the magnificent nine.’ would this nation be soooo lucky.

    Imagine if William Jefferson Clinton had been a Republican. He would have been politically massacred. There is much to be learned from the Cain massacre.
    And legend has it that Patton, as he was defeating Rommel………will we ever be able to say, Saul (Alinsky), you magnificent bastard, I read your book!” President Barack Hussein Obama certainly did.
    “William F. Buckley, Jr. grudgingly stated that he (Saul Alinsky) was “twice formidable, and very close to being an organizational genius.”
    And we are the enemy. “”Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.” And what say you?
    “Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.” –Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky Obama helped fund ‘Alinsky Academy’:

    “The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, provided startup funding and later capital to the Midwest Academy…. Obama sat on the Woods Fund board alongside William Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization…. ‘Midwest describes itself as ‘one of the nation’s oldest and best-known schools for community organizations, citizen organizations and individuals committed to progressive social change.’… Midwest teaches Alinsky tactics of community organizing.”

    Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky: “True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within.

    Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties…. (and the minds of the “enemy”).

    One can compromise but not on “Fundamentals”. Ghandhi

    Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power.

    “Obama is also an Alinskyite…. Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project….

    Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing. While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer.” (By Richard Poe, 11-27-07) Sound familiar?

    And now Cain has been “Alinskied”. Are we in this game….or not?
