However, enough is enough.

Not enough is being said of Herman Cain, because he keeps pumping the ball himself; and people are getting fed up with his excuses and blames.

His presence in the race is sternly becoming a drag on a Republican Party nomination race, which is responsible for selecting someone that people can trust and believe in; and for that person to win their vote.

The longer he stays in it, the harder it gets for the party's other candidates to explain their policies and push their agendas forward. He is, in other words, an unmitigated distraction for all concerned.

He must know that the scandals he is in are enormous and he cannot get away from them as easily as he thinks. No, the media will not let him do that.

He is blaming the court of public opinion, and for what, nobody knows. He has three or four persons witnessing against him; three on sexual harassment charges, and one for an infidelity accusation, and he must know that he has no chance of any meaningful and/or effective defence.

He decides to bring in character assassination as being responsible of his plight, but that also has got nothing to do with the matters under discussion. It does not apply here.

His predicament is beyond repair, if he even chooses to solicit the best attorney in the whole of the United States to (to use Bill Beutel's word) EXTRICATE him from it.

He is consistently, even as we speak, showing that he does not care very much about what others think. He can do as he pleases; yet, that is not living the real world, if he wants to represent the same people that he is ignoring, who are fervently asking him to step out of the Republican nomination race.

At this present time, he must consider two choices; and they are, either to stay in the race and mess things up for his party or hop out.

Retreat or not to retreat, that is the question. It is as clear and simple as that. However, the decision is Cain's.

      Politics is a very public and scrutinous business. A politician should have as stellar a reputation as possible; however, if there are indiscretions, please admit them. Most people are adults(or should be, this is not elementary school, folks, grow up) and will sometimes forgive the indiscretion depending upon its magnitude!
