Is it closing up on him?

Herman Cain, the candidate running in the Republican Party nomination race for the 2012 presidential election, has faulted in his bid, since it was discovered that he had a flaw in his character.

He has shown, since his appearance on the campaign trail, that his background was flawless, and that it was safe for the public and his party to tolerate him as clean cut; and never as a prurient person. He has nothing to hide, and therefore he could be as visible as could be.

His simple language and straight talk have endeared him to many voters; he has won their hearts, as all the polls, conducted by both the media and independent companies, have placed him as running head-to-head with Gov. Mitt Romney, the front runner in the nomination race.

Some polls had Cain as the leading candidate, and he was relaxing in his newly found position in society, when reports came out that he sexually harassed, not one or two, but so far three women, while he was the CEO of the National Restaurant Association.

Monies have changed hands to quieten the women, through bogus "agreements, settlements and severance pay", and other legal arrangements have been spuriously put in place to save his neck.

He has denied all the accusations, and he has even pretended that they never existed.

Yet, with those charges hanging over his head, would it not be the best thing for Mr. Cain to come clean and put public anxiety to rest?

He was being so bullish, and downplaying them (charges); and in the process making the women to be telling lies. How about those compensations for them to keep quiet? Did they not exist? What could he tell his backers to exonerate himself from those serious accusations? Must not he be held accountable now, until he became the president of the United States of America?

Those questions and more, were what reporters were forcing out of him; but he would not budge. However, the media would sit on his tail, until he came forward with some tangible answers to their questions.

On the usual Sunday news programs, he was not attacked per se, but it was clear that Mr. Cain's campaign was coming to an end, and if he did not make it so himself, the political process would boot him out anyway.

Thus, if he came third in any three of the Republican primary caucuses, the party would have to let him drop out of the nomination race.

Presently, no one was pointing the way he should go; but he should surmise that there was no real reason for him to continue, while he was being harangued by news reporters, day in and day out, to tell the truth.

The writing, they say, is on the wall.

      Moreover, aside from the harassment allegations, Cain's not qualified for the presidency. His polls say something about a large segment of the GOP. Not pretty.
