Cain’s run all but over

ATLANTA

Herman Cain still is campaigning for president. But by most measures, his White House bid is all but over.

His standing in polls is cratering. Supporters are wavering if not fleeing. Fundraising is suffering.

And, these days, the former pizza-company executive is less a serious candidate than the butt of late-night comedy jokes after a string of accusations of sexually inappropriate behavior and, now, an allegation of a 13-yearlong extramarital affair.

“His chances at winning the presidency are effectively zero,” said Dave Welch, a Republican strategist who worked on both of John McCain’s presidential bids.

And Republican strategist Kellyanne Conway said: “It’s the daily dose of the wince-and-cringe factor that leaves people wondering what could be coming next,”

As it has since Ginger White stepped forward Monday, the allegation of an affair overshadowed Cain’s campaign for another day Thursday, when he told the New Hampshire Union Leader that his wife, Gloria, did not know he was providing the 46-year-old Atlanta- area businesswoman with money for “month-to-month bills and expenses.”

And, Cain said, his wife also didn’t know of what he called a friendship with White until she said publicly that she had a casual 13-year affair with Cain that ended about eight months ago.

I hope Mr. Cain realizes he is done as a candidate and drops out. Even if he is completely exonerated of any wrong doing, his political career is over. Done. Finished. Go home and take care of family matters.

Regarding drinking the kool aid being spewed by our current administration, I see our fearless leader still has some followers. Those who insist that the rich are limited to one party have really suffered from kool aid overdose. Our hard working people of America have been mis-led for so many years by these kool-aid spewing leaders who insist they are working for us, when in fact they are stuffing their pockets and making themselves into millionaires right before our eyes and we keep voting for them.

We currently have over 250 millionaires in Congress who all insist they represent us, while they are stuffing their pockets, driving our country into the ground, raising taxes and creating more laws to drive up the cost of government. Guess who has to pay for all this...we do, the hard working people of America who can least afford it.

Don't get fooled by all this kool aid talk of raising taxes for only the rich. It is only a ploy to keep class warfare on the table and get him re-elected. Instead of working together with all American's he is attempting to divide and conquer one group at a time. If he is given another 4 years, he will be set up to to do whatever he wants to whomever he wants, we will be driven into deeper debt than we have ever, ever been before and he will have to raise taxes on all of us to pay for it.

I wish Cain would hang in there until three more women to came forward to accuse him so he would tie the President Clinton at seven women who came forward with accusations against Clinton. The Democrats and their lovers were singing a different tune then!
