Herman Cain told supporters in Ohio that he is not dropping out of the 2012 GOP presidential nominating race, according to the New York Times:
“The American people are going to raise some Cain in 2012!”
Over a roar of approval from the crowd, he added: “They want you to believe that we can’t do this. They want you to believe that with enough character assassination on me, I will drop out!”
Bayshore Tea Party Group leader Barbara Gonzalez said, “YAY! I don’t believe Cain did what he’s being accused of, but even if he did, that’s between him and his wife! We need to save the frickin’ country!”Posted: November 30th, 2011 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2012 Presidential Politics | Tags: 2012 Presidential Politics, Barbara Gonzalez, Bayshore Tea Party Group, Herman Cain | 31 Comments »
Bayshore Tea Party Group Standing By Their Man
GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain is reassessing his candidacy in the wake of allegations of a 13 year extra-marital affair, according to a story broken by National Review Online. NRO reports that they had a writer on Cain’s five minute conference call with his senior staff wherein he discussed his campaign’s latest setback.
Cain has denied the affair, as he has denied allegations of sexual harassment while he was the CEO of the National Restaurant Association.
Cain attempted shore up his weak foreign policy credentials by issuing his denials in German, “nine, nine, nine.”
Locally, Bayshore Tea Party Group leader Barbara Gonzalez told Politickernj that her group continues to support Cain, “Until they can prove something, we continue to support him….it’s a smear campaign….no one is buying it.”Posted: November 29th, 2011 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2012 Presidential Politics, Bayshore Tea Party Group | Tags: Barbara Gonzalez, Bayshore Tea Party Group, Herman Cain, National Review Online, Politickernj | 20 Comments »

Thanks, I think, for the post on your website about my new skill, pundit/comedian. We need some levity around here. However, if you read my post, I said it appears the Kochs would like Christie to get the GOP presidential nomination. And if Christie goes all the way to the Oval Office, then Lonegan, part of the Koch team as head of AFP in NJ, would probably get their backing for the gubernatorial nomination in 2013. One thing we know about politics is that there are no certainties. I did not predict Christie would win nor that Lonegan would be the next governor. I just wrote about what apparently is in the offing, Christie’s entry into the presidential race.
Four years ago, the pundits predicted a Giuliani/Clinton presidential contest. So much for the experts. There is a “lifetime” between now and the first caucuses and primaries. Yesterday, the FL straw poll results add fuel to the Christie for President bandwagon. Bachmann is toast, Perry is toast, and the others are marking time. Santorum and Gingrich had their egos stroked from yesterday’s results but they are going nowhere.
Cain is the latest “flavor” of the week. But he in not going anywhere either. He wants even bigger government than Obama as DiLorenzo points out today on the LRC blog. Ron Paul benefited enormously from the results yesterday. He was right there with the other candidates. In short, he is not a fringe candidate as much as the MSM would like to portray him as such.
One more thing; The title of my post: Is the fix in? Not, The Fix is In as in your post. Big difference.
