A Well-Orchestrated Take-Down

One can’t help but notice all the suspicious coincidences surrounding the Herman Cain “story” (all accusations included) that has been sucking the oxygen out of the GOP media-cycle for weeks. Least among the curious coincidences in the stories is that all of these accusers come out of a 3-year period where Cain served as President of the National Restaurant Association. No other complaints come from any other organization in his decades-long career. That’s too strange to understand. The distraction is undoubtedly deliberate, but who stands to gain the most from it?

Are the accusers receiving money or other incentives for going public with these accusations now? And what’s up with all of the Cain accusers being evicted? Just yesterday, Sharon Bialek, the first accuser to come out of the shadows and speak publicly about her accusations, was served eviction papers.

Ginger White, who has had numerous evictions or threats of eviction over the years, also decides to go public now with an alleged 13-year long affair with Cain, even though she didn’t seem compelled to speak out when he ran for the Senate a few years ago to represent the state in which she lives. Desperation really brings out the worst in people, but this seems to be more than a woman trying to get a book deal or her 15-minutes of fame. It’s all too smoothly-scripted, and the media is eagerly getting into character.

This begs the question: Who is orchestrating this take-down?

The MSM is terrified of Herman Cain. While he has some significant shortcomings on his political resume, he is a dynamic leader with proven business success, and he has a fierce intensity of support among white and black Americans. This is clearly a threat to the re-election of Obama, since having two black candidates on the 2012 ballot would level the playing field for those who insist on voting exclusively along racial lines.

However, the fact that this story broke during the primary season instead of remaining buried until the GOP nominee had been decided leads me to believe that it might have been initiated by an opponent on the right. The best strategy for a sitting Democratic President would clearly have been to drop the sexual impropriety allegations as an October surprise, but that isn’t at all what has happened. Either someone is wagging the dog – maybe to distract those on the right from all the outrage brewing in response to Obama’s absurd abuse of power (he’s signed like 9,000 executive orders this year) – or the news was strategically leaked in an effort to benefit someone hoping to win the GOP nomination. Would a candidate on the right sabotage the campaign of one of his conservative brethren? Sadly, the answer to that question is a resounding yes.

Whoever it is that has their hands on the marionette strings should be given some credit, because clearly the plan is working. Herman Cain, the most refreshing capitalist to join Presidential politics in generations, is witnessing total disintegration of his campaign. Because of the path this scandal has taken, he’s pretty well tarnished to the point that he can’t even be considered a viable option for the veep position. It’s unfortunate, and we can only hope that the truth will eventually be revealed, but for now, it looks like Herman Cain is about to exit stage right.

“Yes We Cain” Turns Into “Maybe We Shouldn't”

2012 GOP Presidential hopeful Herman Cain told his supporters on Tuesday that he is reassessing his campaign after Ginger White announced to the world that she had had an almost 13-year apparent pay-for-play sexual affair with him. After weathering numerous accusations of sexual harassment going back a decade or so, the Cain Train looks like it will be derailed over this [alleged] long-term adulterous affair. When politicians say they are “reassessing” their campaign, that usually means they either want to gauge the possibilities of debunking these latest accusations…or whether they can still get the needed financial support to make a serious run for president in 2012. Let’s face it, without millions of dollars in campaign contributions in today’s political climate the candidate is dead in the water. That is just the nature of the beast, as in the American political arena of today.

While the mainstream media operatives are quick to jump on the “Cain’s campaign is dead” bandwagon, there are other more viable reasons that point to why the Cain Train seemed to be running out of track recently. Special hat tip goes out to Erick Erickson of redstate.com, who explained some hard truths about Herman Cain’s campaign problems in today’s Morning Briefing:

In the past 24 hours, I’ve had a lot of people ask why so many Herman Cain supporters would abandon him over this adultery allegation and not the harassment stuff. Well, it’s because people didn’t really believe the harassment stuff. But what’s more, a lot of these same people are wondering why people would jump from Cain over this adultery stuff to Gingrich who is on his third wife, having cheated on Wife 1 with Wife 2 and cheated on Wife 2 with Wife 3.
A caller to my radio show last night summed it up better and more succinctly than me. He said it was not the adultery. After all, we are all sinners. We all like sheep have gone astray. What it is is the incompetence of the Cain campaign’s handling of these several stories. The caller’s voice quivered with anger. He was angry at Herman. He felt betrayed, not because of what Herman may or may not have done, but because this caller backed Herman as the man who could run America and fix its problems, when in reality he can’t even run a campaign and fix his campaign problems.

That’s why, as Herman falls, Newt rises. Written off for dead by many, including me, he has been able to fix his problems in a way Cain has not.

As Erick points out, Cain’s campaign has proven to be fairly incompetent at critical times, leading many to speculate as to whether he is actually making a serious run, or whether his campaign is all just a charade to sell books and gain notoriety. From Cain’s campaign chief smoking in a TV ad, to the ill-timed announcements his staff have made that seem to contradict Cain statements afterward, one must draw the conclusion that Herman Cain did not pick his campaign staff very well right from the beginning. That leads us to make a very crucial observation: If Herman Cain can’t even pick out effective, viable primary campaign staffers, just who could we expect him to install in his cabinet if elected POTUS?

When evaluating Herman Cain on leadership qualities alone, he has also shown a propensity to be ill-prepared as the debates have ratcheted up to include serious topics, such as Foreign policy and entitlement reform. Cain being a career businessman, [as opposed to a career politician] has gotten him a pass in the early debates on serious questions. There is no excuse for a GOP Presidential candidate that proves time and time again that he not only lacks experience, but has also refused to put in the effort to study up on any proposed policy reforms needed to get this country turned around. This became blatantly evident when Cain and Gingrich held a one on one sit-down about a month ago, where Cain deferred to Gingrich on almost every question he was asked in saying, “ I’ll let you take that one Newt.” Cain simply could not answer how he would effectively solve America’s problems without letting Gingrich take the lead, and then expounding on Newt’s answers.

To the very informed GOP Primary voters, this was the beginning of the Cain Train derailment, and rightfully so. Whether the sexual harassment allegations were blown out of proportion by the media or not, (and they were) all of that really didn’t matter when the public was exposed to Mr. Cain’s shortcomings on viable conservative policy-making decisions and planning, along with his poor debate performances. With the [alleged] Ginger White long-term adulterous pay for play sexual affair coming to light, it looks like the Cain Train will just be derailed sooner than was inevitable, simply due to his actual lack of true conservative policy-making knowledge that is oh-so-evident today, if we just look at it closely enough. Taking into account all of the above information, we can certainly expect to see the Cain Train pull out of the GOP Presidential candidacy station for the last time in the next few days, and sadly so. Herman Cain has brought a new level of enthusiasm and a refreshing batch of quips and quotes that was sorely lacking in the GOP primary contests of years gone by. The only real question left is whether he will gracefully put his enthusiastic support behind Newt Gingrich’s campaign, or do a complete about-face and support the GOP establishment candidate Mitt Romney. Only time will tell.

2012 just can’t get here fast enough!

Was Herman Cain Ever A Viable Candidate?

Multiple sources, including Drudge, are reporting that Herman Cain is ‘reassessing’ his candidacy as allegations of yet another sexual indiscretion have emerged.

On numerous blogs and in my Twitter timeline, I’ve seen an astounding number of people make the claim that these allegations are the only reason Cain may be dropping out. I wholeheartedly disagree: I don’t think Cain ever had substantive support from any of the “power brokers” in GOP politics.

On gun rights, Cain never really had the support of major gun rights lobbies, because the seriousness of Cain’s support of Second Amendment rights was questionable at best. This put him in stark contrast to candidates like Rick Perry, whose gun rights record is ironclad; Newt Gingrich, Gary Johnson, and Jon Huntsman, whose public statements and actions in office supported a ‘favorable’ impression of gun rights; Rick Santorum, a life member of the National Rifle Association; and Ron Paul, who has donated large sums of money to gun rights legal actions. In fact, only one other candidates’ gun rights record is murkier than Cain’s: Mitt Romney.

Little needs to be said on Cain’s foreign policy flubs, since they are well-known and often-repeated. Cain’s numerous foreign policy gaffes turned away ‘defense hawks’ and foreign policy analyists, who want a better-informed Commander-in-chief.

Cain’s 999 tax plan became something of a gimmick, due to Cain’s laughable overuse of the phrase. It was so laughable, in fact, that a number of Twitter personnas (of which I am one) instituted a “999 drinking game” during debates. The fact that the details of the 999 plan were abysmally ill-conceived helped to cement the failure of Cain’s de facto talking point.

And then there was Cain’s comments on the housing bubble- his failure to predict the consequences of a bad policy of giving away mortgages to unqualified borrowers, and the insults he hurled at those of us who did forsee the housing collapse. (I have also blogged about Newt Gingrich’s record on this same issue.) Of anyone on the right, Tom Woods has compiled the best case against Herman Cain as a free-marketer.

Cain also failed to earn the respect of monetary reformers, due to his background as a former Federal Reserve chairman and his opposition to auditing the Fed.

So if Herman Cain had no unique support from educated fiscal conservatives and tax policy enthusiasts, defense hawks, gun rights advocates, foreign policy wonks, or monetary reformers, where did his support come from?

The answer is damning: It came from people who believed he had greater character than anyone else in the race. Cain himself played up this element with cozy stories about his faith, his battle with cancer, his long marriage, his fortitude in the face of racial discrimination in the South, his hard work and success in business, and so forth. I myself commented that, though I didn’t support him for President, I would probably like him very much if I knew him privately; this personability is what drove his fans- the “Cainiacs”- to support him so ardently (and at times, ridiculously).

And then came the allegations. The first few were laughable in their transparency, and Cain dismissed them and promised us he had “no skeletons in his closet”; Sharon Bialek’s claim was quickly dissected and dismissed; but then came Ginger White, with a claim of a 13-year affair with Cain, and evidence in the form of late-night cell phone calls and text messages.

The crushing blow, then, is not that yet another political personality engaged in sexual misconduct- we all know that this is as common in politics as neckties- but that Cain doesn’t have the great personal integrity he claimed to have.

And that is the worst kind of betrayal any of us can suffer.

Herman Cain's 14 Year Affair with Ginger White. Love, or Pay for Play Sex?

Herman Cain has another accuser and this one isn’t about sexual harassment. In an unbelievable twist in the Herman Cain runs for president saga, one Ginger White now claims that she has has a fourteen year affair with Herman Cain that ended just 8 months ago. This accuser says Mr. Cain flew her around the country to spend time with him, and lavished her with gifts on many occasions. Check out the following video that includes a healthy dose of real journalistic investigating as Ginger White is proven to have libeled someone before, was sued on many occasions, had a history of chronic money problems, and has been evicted for non payment on numerous occasions. Ms. White claims to be a “businesswomen,” yet never has enough money to pay her bills. She says this isn’t about money (telling this story) yet has already got a lawyer. This looks more like an escort service being paid for sex between two consenting adults. Also take note of how Ginger says “some people” will try to make this out to be filthy or dirty, but alludes to her thinking it isn’t. Supposedly having an affair for 14 years with a married man is not only filthy, it is a disgusting indication of this woman’s complete lack of character. Watch the video, tell me she wasn’t making a living off of selling her sexual escapades to Herman Cain. Two wrongs don’t make a right. This woman admits to having supposedly prostituted herself to a married man for 14 years, and now we are supposed to take her at her word?

Georgia Woman Claims 13-Year Affair with Herman Cain: MyFoxATLANTA.com

Ginger White seems to have all the answers as to what people will say about this episode coming out after 14 long years of supposedly flying around the country, accepting Mr. Cain’s gifts, eating lavish dinners with him, and all in exchange for what Ms. White? *SEX.* Ms. White refused to mention the word sex in her “coming out” interview party. Isn’t that strange? This appears to be another simple case of gold-digging malcontents trying to make money off of a long-lost meal ticket, this one just happens to be named Herman Cain. Oh and did you know he is running for President of the United States in 2012? Be prepared as the feminazists and assorted Liberal gay women’s rights groups try to paint this gold-digger as some sort of victim. Surely she can be criminally charged as a hooker posing as an escort doing business across state lines if we are to believe her story is 100% correct?
