Should Herman Cain quit the race for the 2012 Republican Party nomination for President of the US?
What would you advise Herman Cain to do?
I would advise him to quit, unless he is planning on running again in 2016 and wants to build name recognition for his next run. At this point, his 2012 campaign seems hopeless. Going on with it is going to cost him a lot of money. I can't see how he can win the nomination at this point.
He may as well. Whether Cain is guilty as sin or innocent as a lamb, or any degree in between, his candidacy has been destroyed by this smear campaign. Continuing will run up large debts, and all losing politicians find those difficult either to pay or to escape.
The more interesting question remains. Who is behind these unsubstantiated accusations of sexual misconduct? They haven't all cropped up spontaneously, nor are the leftie media e.g. Politico doing it indendently. My money's on that sleazy Obama operator Axelrod, but we can't rule out an equally unethical retardican pro working either for Romney or the party establishment.
I really think he ought to. When a candidacy starts to look too much like a circus act it ought to end. The last election was a big circus act that has only recently started to die down a little. We don't need another one.
I do not think so. It is foolish for him to be so low because of "accusations". Who cares if he makes sexual advances? Every man does. If every man was pushed out of his future positions because of sexual advances, no man would ever have a job because of their actions between the ages of 12 and 25. I'm more disappointed with society than Cain.
Herman Cain isn't remotely qualified to be president. His 9-9-9 "plan" is no more than a radica, poorly-thought-out, unrealistic slogan. And his knowledge of history and foreign policy is close to zero. He never should have entered the race.
Yes, whether he is guilty of the affair or not--he did admit that his wife did not know he was giving this woman money. So if he is willing to keep those kinds of things from his wife--what would he do as president and keep from the country.
Word has it he has already called it quits, and he should..
According to the headline article on the Fox News Web site, Herman Cain *suspended* his campaign.
He didn't exactly *quit*... yet.

I kind a feel sorry for the poor guy. I don't think he would be foolish enough to run for president knowing he had all this stuff in the closet. I wonder if his closest competitor, Mitt is digging up this...

I am not justifying Herman Cain's behavior, but the media acts like he is the first womanizing politician. They willingly forget that Clinton had many scandals during his run for office and while he was in office. What...
