Last night Alevda King went on CNN to defend Herman Cain. She says she’s known him since 2000 and that he is absolutely not a “skirt chaser”.

It’s about time that someone with heft defends Herman Cain. And I agree with Alevda and don’t think he’s guilty of any impropriety.

I know he’s had a rough time dealing with all these allegations, and he’s certainly made some mistakes. I didn’t criticize him for his initial response when all these accusations started because I believe he is an honest man trying to deal with a near impossible situation. However, I do criticize him for, shall way say, being too honest yesterday when his campaign confirmed that he is reassessing. That is something that should have never been made public as it sends the wrong signals to people that support him or may still be deciding to support him.

Of course there have been other blunders that we all know about, but each debate gives him a chance to reaffirm his strengths and when he does, the other stuff starts to fade over time. So yes, I think he needs some really good debates in the month of December and he really needs to own the issues. That will wash away much of the recent past.

      The only thing appeals to me about Cain is his tax reform plan which is huge in my book. However, there isn’t much else that really excites me about Cain. It really pains me to see how he just doesn’t seem to really be able media in its place, but hey that’s just me.

        The 9-9-9 plan to me isn’t appealing because it ADDS a new tax. Eventually you know how this will play out. We will be paying 20-20-20 or something. It won’t stay at 9%. Has anyone thought about how it’s going to affect local taxes when shopping. It’s sure not going to be an incentive to spend.

          I agree with you particularly regarding the sales tax. It would have to pass and then made nearly impossible to raise those rates. My primary point is if anybody else gets in I almost guarantee that the tax code changes very little if at all.

            Not true. Dare I say it, but Ron Paul plans to eventually end the IRS making it a 0-0-0 plan.

              He is the other candidate that would definitely be a game changer, but there is no way he’d get elected. First off I think we need a good strong libertarian in office and more in congress. I’m conservative on economics and liberal on social issues (with a pro-life stance on abortion). In my opinion I just don’t think Ron Paul is the right messenger.

              • Anonymous

                The libertarian and economic stance of Paul is well and good. I was beguiled at first, but his naïveté towards the true motivation of Islamic terrorists and ideologues to do harm on none-Muslims, none-conforming Muslims, past Muslims, as well as to Muslims themselves is a danger to your country and the world as a whole. He seems not aware or completely ignores what is happening in Europe with large Muslim enclaves – even Muslims themselves are threatened, as well as in Dearborn Michigan (in your own backyard). If not for his small government views, I would say he is as dangerous as Obama when it comes to foreign policy.

                  But, IF we are attacked HERE (like 911) our military is overseas defending some other country and not our own. That makes us WEAK. How long did it take on 911 for our military to get into the air? This is why I believe his foreign policy makes more sense. We are spread so thin we are weaker at home and 911 proved that.

                • Anonymous

                  When you look back to how Obama won his previous seat, you would see the same dirty tricks used against his opponents as they have used now against Cain. By the time the allegations were proven false, it was already too late – as the election had already been decided. These dirty tricks will surely work if you the conservative supporters will let them bait and pull those dirty strings on your noses. Wise up!

                  When 911 happened, there were militaries in the ground more than enough to defend your country. They were just caught unprepared and off guard. What was missing then and even now was the awareness within many of your officials, bureaucrats, military, academia, and media of how Islamist ideologues wish your country ill – as your country currently is the only capable defense against their world Islamic supremacists’ dream. Your media has done great disservice on your country for misinforming the public of “Islamists Kumbaya love & peaceful intentions”.

                  No, “wealth and democracy envy” is not their main motivation either as widely or wrongly believed. As to that “envy myth” look no further than Europe, as it is the “Envy Capital” of the Western World. Europe is very good and has been successful in spreading this ugly trait to the entire world. As for Islamist ideologues, their purpose is to kill democracy as it is anathema to Islam (Big on Control and theocracy – it is home of many despots because of that mentality). They hate wealth as they believe that if people have wealth, they will enjoy more freedom and are more difficult to boss around. They need all of us suffering so we would start loving death (as immediate escape) instead of life.

                  Even after 911 happened, there are still many of you Americans and among us – the world, who are unaware as to what lengths these Islamist ideologues will do to make Islam the World’s only supreme religion.

                  Should Ron Paul wins, the risks of having Pearl Harbor and 911 to happen will rise exponentially, and you will even have no way to preempt them until damage has already been done.

                Why? All it requires is for people to vote for him. He has as good a chance as any other candidate. It’s that attitude that serves to be a defeating one. I believe the media has been the main obstacle to his candidacy. It’s the fact that he’s the ONLY one against the FED which is THE reason he is marginalized.

              A 0-0-0 plan is the other side of the coin of a socialist utopia. If it is too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t let absolute “cheapness” blind you from reality.

                We didn’t have an income tax before 1913 so obviously, it’s not something too good to be true. It’s what the founders were trying to get away from.

                • Anonymous

                  Have you ever lived and experienced 1913 and before? Would you really like to live back in that? This pseudo nostalgia thing is nothing new. The communists/progressives and Islamist ideologues are also working hard in rolling back the clock. Absolutism has always failed for a reason.

                  Limited government – YES, but one should be weary of any 0 sum game. You cannot completely irradicate taxation system without replacing it with something else, and that should be a big worry in itself. This is the reason why I know Ron Paul’s ideas are good in papers and imagination, but just like the theories and hypotheses of many in the academia, have little workable traction in real practice. There is SIM City where Ron Paul’s ideas could work out fine without causing that much damage.

        • Anonymous

          Your reasoning is faulty. How can you assure that the tax rate you are currently paying will not increase from its already current uncompetitive high rate? Have you not heard of the debates going on in the house of whether to increase your current tax rate or not?

          The good thing about Cain’s tax is it’s so radical enough to shock the system out from its stupor. The world will be forced to copy it in order to remain competitive, which will liven up the world’s economic picture.

          With the sales tax it would also increase the tax base, making everybody responsible (even the underground economy and the black market). None will be left indifferent and apathetical. Everybody will think first how it will affect the sales tax rate every time they open their hands/palms out for any entitlements, programs, and stimulus spending. Everyone will be forced to hold in check their politicians and bureaucrats’ spending as they would be made more than aware on how it affects their bottom line. Those in the bottom of the economic scale will be motivated in working hard to benefit more from a flat tax. The tendency and the appeal of cheating in declaring low income, in order to qualify in paying the lowest tax rate scale, will be lessened as everybody will be paying the same flat tax rate. Flat tax will motivate people to race to the top of the economic scale.

          The elimination of the payroll tax is an added bonus which will lighten the burden of both business and individual tax payers and will translate to lower cost of goods and services.

          The only thing I can suggest to Cain is lower the sales tax to 5% to further encourage spending. The 5% sales tax alone will boost tax revenue enough, that you will be able to pay a chunk at a time towards the principal of your astronomical debt load if you are serious enough in cutting spending instead of raising the debt ceiling (which is idiotic to the nth degree). Canada has been able to survive credit crunch and climb up beyond a downgrade in the past partly due to the introduction of a sales tax (Goods & Services Tax) as well as big spending cuts.

        • mike morrison

          yes, like this tax system we have now is so transparent and void of possibility of taxes being raised without even our knowledge??? :( Get real…having a 999 plan for 4 years transitioning us to a national sales tax ONLY would be the fastest way to get lobbying out of D.C. and Congress. We would see a massive amount of production here in the US and savings would go up tremendously. Just look at Chile’ as an example.

          It doesn’t add a new tax. You are already paying that tax 3 times because it is passed on from the wholeseller to the retailer to the customer. I have had three business, and that is what happens. The consumer pays the tax boosted up three time. So his 999 does away with the pass on. Ron Paul won’t do anything that the Congress will not allow. The same with any President.

        • Anonymous

          The 999 plan takes away the payroll tax built into every service and product you buy now and replaces it with a simple final retrail sales tax at the register. Look at it this way:

          Product A costs……………………… $100 at the register
          add state sales tax PA 6%………… 6
          Final price…….. $106

          If the built in hidden taxes are 25% and you knock that off, the tagged price of product A is $75. Add 9% of 75 ($6.75) and PA sales tax 6%($4.50) you have a total of $86.25 at the register. That saves you $13.75 to do with as you please.

          Now if you live in a state without a sales tax like DE then you have a price of $75 +9%($6.75), you pay at the register $81.75 saving you $18.25 to do with as you please.

          Any questions?

          The whole preimise of a nationa;l retail sales tax in place of the income tax works on the same principle except the 9% income tax is gone and in it’s place is a 23% retail sales tax. This systemm is guaranteed to take out all the political favors that high dollar corporations employ lobbyists to BRIBE congress critters with negating the Critter’s power and putting the genie back into the bottle. Politicians will no longer desire to be lifetime public servants because there ain’t no money in it. Transparency, sanity, constitutionality at last. The government becomes funded without people having to lobby Congress and citizens hiding their money in tax free vehicles.

          It doesn’t add a new tax. It replaces all the embedded taxes we already pay and the sales tax is something that will be paid by everybody. Illegals, prostitutes crooks etc.

            He’s already adding loop holes in it and over time it would end up being just as corrupted as the current tax plan.

        • Anonymous

          States that have sales taxes rarely see increase in that tax, and sometimes even see decreases. Income taxes started off very low…but are several times higher than when the tax was first levied.

          Any increases in sales taxes incurs a fight at the state level. That same fight should be held at the federal level. 9-9-9 accomplishes that.

          And of course, 9-9-9 is a temporary solution until the Fair Tax can be adopted.h

          Also, an Income Tax is not in harmony with the thinking of the Founders. An income tax implies that the government is entitled to a certain amount of your money. The Founders were for Sales Taxes and against Income Taxes.

        • Anonymous

          You’re missing a key part of the plan. We are already paying those taxes because they are imbedded into everything we buy. Cain’s plan removes those hidden taxes and puts them out in the open. The number is a flat rate and plays no favorites. You buy, you pay. The current tax rate can be risen at any time, so why aren’t we at 90%? Because some politicians would like to keep their jobs, plus conservatives know that the more tax you add the less product you buy….leading to less revenues going to Uncle Sam. Libs are too stupid to realize that and would tax the rich at 80% if they could, but they can’t do it because of opposition. This is true now and it will be true with Cain’s rates.

          Have you actually looked at the 9-9-9/9-0-9 plan that he has posted? I would assume you have instead of just jumping to judgement based on the media’s brief coverage of the plan. He talks about it in more detail on his site. The 9-9-9/9-0-9 plan is step 1 of the plan, step 2 is to go repeal the 16th amendment and move to a Fair Tax. http://www.hermancain.com/999

        I like his stance on foreign policy. Simple, but speaks to our current foreign policy fiasco.

        It was very impressive to me that he went out and publicly stated that Planned Parenthood is an evil organization whose goal is to kill off the black race.

        Also, his resume, is terrific. Hands down the best in the field. His record of accomplishment, in a results driven field…that is why I became a supporter.

        I like that he was one of the first people to rally up what would become the Tea Party movement.

        I encourage all to go to Youtube and watch some of those videos of the speeches Cain gave before he ever became a Presidential candidate.

          No one should be expected to know every detail and information of every country there is, especially on a political outsider. The most important thing a candidate should know about foreign policy should be; that he/she would stand shoulder to shoulder with countries who live and promote the ideals of democracy/freedom/liberty and life. As to rogue countries, war should only be considered as a last resort, when all diplomatic and political strategies and tools failed.

      • Steven

        I would go to show how it could not possibly be the case. But I can’t judge Cain’s reaction because I have never been in the public eye running a campaign. He’s trying to do two things, which are immense. Campaign, learn the issues, develop his own solutions, and present them to the American people. And he has to respond to these allegations, provide as much facts as he can, and deal with the media and opposition campaigns. It’s a tall
        order and I respect that he’s now in a reassessment mode.

        I think when he reemerges, he has as good a shot as any in the field to win. Despite everything thrown his way, he’s still in the top 3. That’s saying alot about the strength of his core support and his potential to regain the support he’s lost due to this media cloud. All of this circus is nothing that an old fashion win in Iowa can’t fix!

      Cain is a successful executive – that’s what he knows. How to oversee a team to accomplish a goal. I’ll bet running for President of the United States is a completely different experience, especially with stones coming at him faster than a meteor shower. He’s doing a better job than I could.

  • Anonymous

    Apparently, the media’s mission is to keep race as an integral factor in the 2012 Presidential Election. Cain removes the race factor from the election process, which would inevitably force Obama to run on the issues, with no race-baiting = #ObamaFail.

    If race issues were removed from the election, all Obama would have left, would be class-warfare (and we see how #ows is turning out for the Obama campaign now).

    This makes it even more imperative that the media do everything in their power to destroy Cain at all costs.

    Race should not be an issue at all, but things are not always as we would have them be.

    If Herman Cain comes out and speaks like Alveada King just spoke on his behalf, he just might make a comeback! This race is not over by a long shot! The GOP must step up and not accept the status quo in the form of Gingrich or Romney. Neither represents the Tea Party. The Tea Party needs to be represented and we have such a candidate in the race now under the fire of tabloid politics.

    Where was this media scrutiny with John Edwards? He was running for president while he had a real affair on his cancer stricken wife. They covered it up for him until well after the race had been decided. And what about Bill Clinton, who actually paid a legal settlement with Paula Jones for $800,000 to quiet her sexual ASSAULT claims? Mr. Cain didn’t pay any legal settlement whatsoever over his alleged sexual harassment and those “claims” were handled by his personnel department in a severance agreement paid by the Restaurant Association.

    This is a smear campaign orchestrated by the Obama camp and conservatives are standing by while they take down one of our own! It’s the same thing the Obama camp did to Sarah Palin in Alaska with the ethics complaints and we didn’t rise to her defense either. I am sick of this! Do we want conservative leadership or not? It’s still in our power to make it happen for this nation!

    It all starts in Iowa! I pray that Iowa voters stay committed to seeing the Tea Party cause championed in 2012! It won’t happen with Gingrich or Romney as the nominee. Iowa shocked the world in 2004, when they elected Barack Obama in those caucuses and the rest is history. We need Iowa to do it again, to erase the mistake they made in 2004 on the Democrat side. Be bold Iowa! Vote Cain!

    I am a Canadian and have been very interested in your democratic process. I watched Obama when he first campaigned for Presidency and looked closely on how his eyes moved and looked, and I knew then that this man had malice in his mind and what came out from his mouth were nothing but a sleek cover. I told my friends this that nothing good would come out if this man would win, and sadly I was proven right.

    I have watched Cain’s eyes, his campaign, while facing these allegations and I see a very sincere man who has been trying to understand and grasp the head and tail of this dirty allegations. To this date I still believe what I have seen on Cain’s eyes, and that is the sincerity in helping to pull your nation back up. Perfection is not a criteria for the Presidency, it is not even possible on this earth, but sincerity should be. Aside from that, Mr. Cain has history of turning failing businesses around and has a ready economic plan to make it. All the others are trying, but failing, to copy what he has initiated.

    Americans, you were given a very important and very bitter lesson when you voted for a man who’s good in enunciations and articulations, learn from it. Stop using your ears alone and learn how to read sincerity when you see it.

    Do not fall for ready made, talking points, and well versed answers of established and long time politicians – for talking is their main political currency. They could make pretzels look straight and vice versa – until your eyes are crossed.

    Has anyone considered that cheaters are not always skirt chasers, but opportunists? Many men can lead double lives. I just cannot believe he’s completely innocent of this latest claim. I dismissed the other claims because there was no proof, but I’m starting to have my doubts when someone comes out & says 13 yr affair. That’s not a one-night stand, but a longterm relationship. I also didn’t like the way Cain answered Wolf in saying ‘wait to see the claims before I respond’. If nothing happened, he wouldn’t need to wait & see how to respond, don’t you think?

      If there is one criticism I would issue against Mr Cain, it is as you have said: He isn’t going hard enough against these allegations. He needs to completely blanket bomb these bimbos and ‘tear them a new one’ like you say. (Gooodness me, I love that expression!) But so far, he hasn’t really done that. Talks of “reassessing” campaigns are giving too much to his enemies. This is not what I expected from him.

        Did you watch the interview with Ginger White? She claims that the “blanket bombs”, as you put it, against the other women were what caused her to come forward.

      Uh, he is defending himself. Do you bother to even look?

      He did a great job on Cavuto today. Lengthy interview, not just a sound bite. He’s not a Mickey D’s drive-thru window. It takes more than 3 minutes.

      His first priority was his wife. Isn’t that disturbing? His second priority were probably his kids. Sounds right to me. Watch him on Cavuto. Hulu it or wait till Scoop gets it. You might like it.

        I watched it earlier and was very impressed. I thought he handled all of Neil’s questions articulately, and honestly. And then I wondered: Would I rather have a candidate that put his political future ahead of his family, or the family first? I logged onto Mr. Cain’s website and made another contribution.

        I still believe he is an honest, honorable man and I won’t be swayed by sleazebags (bimbos & media pundits) coming out of the word work to attempt to smear him.

        As much as I have always liked Allen West, I was terribly disappointed in his comments on this. Looks like what we thought to be a great Tea Party candidate has been co-opted by the establishment. That is very sad!

    Anytime the King family comes out & takes a public position on an issue, someone is paying them for it. The King family don’t do NUTTIN without payment.

    Period.

        That’s why they copyrighted the I have a dream speech, right, homey?

          So what? King was a legend. If King was my dad, I’d copyright him so quick and so hard that… he’d get up from six feet under and ask to be in himself on some of that cashmo.

    This woman is why I am firmly of the opinion that if MLK was alive today, he would be ashamed of Barack Hussein Obama.

    I forgot about his chemo and cancer… Miss King is right. How was he having an affair during that? I believe he had Stage 4 cancer, right? That didn’t just come and go over a few months. That would have been a very long time recovering from, and most people never recover from that stage of cancer. Despite that period of time, I am just not believing any of this about Mr. Cain. I just don’t believe it. I would be heartbroken if it ever came out that any of the allegations were true, but until I ever see anything like that, I’m sticking behind Mr. Cain, and I believe him.

    Alveda said Cain has sent her text messages too!!! Stop the press!!!

    Thank you Alveda. Finally someone mentioned the Dem’s loss of the race card. Ann Coulter mentioned a while ago that this was all coming out of Chicago and Axelrod.

    THANK YOU, Ms. King. Finally. Time to MOVE ON – I’m SICK of tabloid politics, and will be even SICKER if we end up with another John McCain (with more hair) on the Republican ticket. Too much is at stake to try that disaster again. Forget Newt – forge ahead, TEA Party candidates!!

      I read that article too. I was like really!? So we have a woman in a 13 year lesbian partnership, who’s helping her with her business, and having a 13 year affair with a married man, who’s had stage 4 cancer, and going through a lawsuit, and restraining orders. WOW SHE’S BUSY!!! PLEASE THIS WOMAN IS JOKE AND I DON’T REALIZE WHY PEOPLE DON’T SEE IT.

    Martin Luther King must be proud of you. Herman Cain is one of my choices for president and I know all these accusations are false, probably started by Obama, because he is afraid of Herman Cain…God Bless You!

    All the stories surrounding Cain are made up. He’s the next Sarah Palin and there’s proof.

    That was a good interview with a savvy lady.

    Radiation took care of Mr Cain’s urges 5 years ago. Give the guy a break! This whole thing is a farce. Anyone notice Gloria Alred has been really quiet? That’s because there’s no truth to what’s been put out there. It was all to discredit him.

    Agree or disagree with Mr Cain’s 999 plan. Thats what the media should be talking about. But they won’t. They’re participants in this diversion about a man undergoing chemo treatment for cancer and allegedly having an affair at the same time. To borrow a line from Rush Limbaugh…they will tell you who they fear the most by how visciously they go after them.
