This is a welcome sign on a network that seems overpopulated with moderate Republicans:

DEADLINE – Fox News Channel has added Herman Cain as a contributor. The former National Restaurant Association CEO, who ran in 2012 for the GOP Presidential nomination, will join other recent additions to the cable news network like former Senator Scott Brown and former Congressman Dennis Kucinich. “Cain’s impressive resume makes him a valuable addition to the FOX News and FOX Business lineup. As a political expert with business savvy, he brings an important voice to the nation’s debates,” said FNC’s EVP Programming Bill Shine in a statement today.

Just because I feel like posting it, here is one of my all time favorite moments of Herman Cain:

    Alright, the Cain train, keeps rolling.

    • poljunkie

      I’ve always admired a man who carries a hankerchief. Its very gallant you know when you have it in your pocket, when one of us need it- to wipe away tears, or dirt, or fix a childs boo boo.

      • http://twitter.com/ozziecastillo Stewie

        I’ve heard Clinton carries a hanky too……who knew he was such a gentleman.

        • 28thRonin

          If he had been a gentleman the blue dress wouldn’t be stained.

          • 1endtimes2020

            That’s a good one, you forensic scientist, you.

        • poljunkie

          Bleech. Thanks for ruining my little spiel.

          I WAS referring to gentlemanly things, not a$$hat infatuation propelled moves that Clinton benefited from with unpaid interns in blue dresses (and others).

          Augh…hee hee

            Ahahaha..poor Pol!

        • keyesforpres

          His hanky is for panky.

          • Conservative_Hippie

            LOL!

          • 1endtimes2020

            Hanky panky—you people slay me.. I needed that sense of humor tonight.

      • 1endtimes2020

        Or surrender, want a pause in a war, or seek help at the top of the world trade centre…but don’t take this seriously—it’s just silly add ons.

  • NWIGOP

    I need to find what station his radio show is on around the Chicago land area

    • poljunkie

      He is very engaging!

      • Conservative_Hippie

        Agreed! He is very good on the radio.

    • sjmom

      Think he’s just on in Atlanta; the station is WSB and you can get it on the internet.

    • Is_Sense_Common

      Just goto http://www.hermancain.com & click “Listen Live.” He’s on 9-12 EST.

  • PicklePlants

    Wow, I never saw this before. Thanks Scoop!

  • martha chandler

    Well, if they get rid of Juan and Bob, I’ll start watching Fox again.

    • Linky1

      Juan, Bob, that’s a start.

      O’Really, Hannity, Greta, Shep Smith, Megyn Kelly…….get rid of them and replace them with real conservative-type people, I might think of watching them again. Until then, even the dulcet tones and common sense of Herman Cain won’t woo me back to FOX.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OQI5D66OXO7X2FE4NVCZC7BAMA Joe

    It’s a shame that train got derailed

    There should be a rule that any candidate MUST have 10 years BUSINESS experience

    ALSO – They must be able to carry a tune !

    • nibblesyble

      Here here!

  • Maxsteele

    Yes! That’s what we need more of. A successful business man that can articulate what goes on in the real world. Not these lifetime political pundits or reporters that just quote what real smart people, like Cain say.
    You go CAIN, let’s get the conservative revolution started.

    • StandingGround

      Herman hasn’t slowed down one bit. He is really good on his new radio program. I like “Cain off the Chain”, as he puts it. He much more bold than we saw on the campaign trail and will hit each issue right between the eyes with truth.

      Between his radio program, CainTV, his spots on Fox, and all the other ventures he has, I believe he will be more relevant than any expected.

      I’m with you, Max, Go Herman!

    • 1endtimes2020

      I realize Obama cannot run again, but can you imagine debates between Obama and Cain? Wouldn’t that be awesome?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steven-Valdez/1806887704 Steven Valdez

    Two steps back, one step forward at foxnews.. But good for Herman Cain.

  • Rshill7

    Beautifully smooth baritone. Resonance. You could feel it in your bones.

    Congratulations Mr. Cain !

    Salute !

  • clockwindingdown

    The man should have continued his campaign, the fact he was attacked so relentlessly shows what a threat he is to the left.

    Once agin I would like to thank those on the left for telling whom and what they fear!

    • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

      I suspect, no proof, the attacks came from the “right” too.
      he said he found out how much of it happened but is not going to say who.

      • clockwindingdown

        He should speak up, if not they win, we loose. We need to call out people that attack others without grounds, other than to smear an others character. These are not people that contribute positively to our society, rather they are the ones bringing us down.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwWW2DQS_DU Booker T.(D – Politburo Pond)

    He might come on Dobbs show a lot. At least that’s what I think.

    • 1endtimes2020

      Dobbs. I still miss his show a lot. He was a terrific guy. A class act.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Since apparently they had already signed the contract and were obligated to keep Scott Brown as a contributor, they had to counter that mistake with a true conservative. Herman Cain is a welcome addition to the unfair and unbalanced network.

    They also added Mark Levin as a palate-cleaner.

    Throw in Sarah Palin and keep Ted Cruz and Allen West on (though have them on more frequently) and maybe they’ll wake FNC up. Bring back Michelle Bachman and have other excellent contributors like Trey Gowdy, Jason Chaffetz, Mia Love, Jim DeMint, etc. and you’ll be cooking with gasoline!

    • keyesforpres

      And get the Saudi’s money out of Fox stock. That is what really sent them downhill.

      • sDee

        Perhaps globalist Murdoch was happy to have them join?

        • keyesforpres

          He must have been and I’ve read that Murdock owns stock in some muslim media too.

      • Sober_Thinking

        You’re two for two my friend… interesting. That would explain much.

        I think I need to get out more. :)

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/44F4AB4VSCTOCHBMBG4ZWWD5OU Laurel

    I will stick with Cain TV.

  • ChesterWalton

    Cain can really sing and deliver fresh takes and opinions. With Cain in the fold, Fox has the opportunity to finally venture into some comedy areas by staging skits and bit, like ones Cain did with Stephen Colbert. This is one area where conservatives really lack the firepower to match the libs on SNL, late night shows and comedy central.

  • sDee

    This just confirms my choice this week calling our cable company to drop us to the next package that does not include Fox News.

    Fair and Balanced is standing a lie up against the truth so the viewer can discern neither. They are as much responsible for Hussein Obama as MSNBC – the sin of omission.

    I will no longer be my enemy’s customer

  • keyesforpres

    Nice voice. Nice man. I had the honor of meeting him last year. Very nice indeed.

    • nibblesyble

      Yay Keyes…i didn’t know that…lucky gal!

      • keyesforpres

        Indeed. Also got to meet Bachman a couple of times and Santorum a couple of times. Listened to Romney, but couldn’t believe it when he had McCain come out and pitch for him! Lame indeed!

        • nibblesyble

          Awesome. Don’t get me started on Romney..lol

          • keyesforpres

            Yeah, I only went because he was running. Not because he was my choice. It was funny though when McCain congratulated both of our major universities on the bowl win. Only problem, one of the universities got clobbered. You’d think he would have checked out the scores before going on stage.

            Then McCain went on to say that Obama would be a great president and someone whispered in his ear and then he said, “I mean Romney.”

            I truly think McCain is senile.

    • nosilasunny

      I’ve met him too, right before for he decided to run for president. He is a very nice, and I had a very nice conversation with him. It really upset me how he and his family were treated.

      • keyesforpres

        Yeah, the leftards lynched him…something they always liked to do to black Republicans and white Republians too.

  • sjmom

    A good choice by Fox for a change. God bless Herman.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    He would have been a great president, and a great antidocte to Obama. Love me some Herman Cain.

    The man has a good voice…singing or not.

  • aPLWBinAK

    I agree that is a great Herman Cain moment. I have one of my own favorite Herman moments, from way back in the Clinton era before we knew who Cain was. He debates Bill Clinton to a standstill on ‘Hillary-Care’. Bill finally saw he had met his intellctual superior and drummed up a phony ‘we’re short on time, and we’ll have to quit for now’ excuse… http://youtu.be/HdLGKRBJ_0E

    Here’s some classic “bonehead Cain”:

    http://m.youtube.com/index?&desktop_uri=%2F

    What an embarrasment. There were many on this very board that wanted this ignoramus to be the leader of the world. HAhahahahah!

    • williamm

      What’s the connection between that video and Cain? Maybe I’m missing something.

      • John3_3

        Here William, watch the Wizard in Action.

    • WinMissouri

      Go away Troll

      • John3_3

        I am the farthest thing from a troll. Read my posts. Cain is an ignorant and he proved that during the campaign. I fixed the link by the way. Watch that and tell me I’m a troll.

        • Martin2717

          The only ignorant one here is you. You and the Communist-in-Chief.

    • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

      You base your entire criticism on that? What are you, new to politics?

      It’s like you’ve never seen video of a politician struggling to figure out what he wants to say.

      I can only imagine your shock and surprise that your supposed “smart” politicians typically change the subject to cover up the fact that they can’t answer the question.

      • John3_3

        Are you serious? Struggling to figure out what he wants to say? He didn’t know what to say because he didn’t have a clue about a very important topic of foreign policy. It appears that you are the one new to politics. You are still stuck in the mentality of “Republican good, Democrat Bad”.

        That was just an example there are MANY more instances where he embarrassed himself and his followers. How about the reason he left the race? He committed adultery and was exposed for it. I thought we conservatives were against that type of immoral behavior. Guess not when it’s one of our “own”. Again, “Republican good, Democrat bad”.

        • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

          Now you’re just repeating the same crap, over and over, like a newsgroup newbie.

          You made your point. Few agree with you. Time to move on.

  • TLaMana

    I’m still disappointed that he got pushed aside by the Establishment Republicans just so Romney would win the nomination. There is a good chance we would be talking about President Cain today if the people had a real voice.

    • williamm

      I’m not disappounted and I’m not a troll. I didn’t want to comment here but I’ve seen enough praise for a man that claims he’s for the second amendment and seconds later he says it should it should be a state’s decision.

      Guess Cain would be ok with what democrats in Missouri house are trying to do.

      Thankfully they are outnumbered 106-56.

      Under Cain the blue states could take away the second amendment right.

      • John3_3

        EXACTLY, William. Cain is an ignoramus. On MANY issues. I have been accused of being a troll on this thread as well, lol. I’m that farthest thing from a troll. Watch his Libya response on youtube. It’s classic bonehead Cain.

        • williamm

          This is the one.

          These are great people on this forum but telling the truth about Cain is a no no. The people here need to do some research before they form an opinion on Cain.

          Again I say, You won’t fimd better people than on here. You just need to have a thick skin and post things you can prove. I’ve posted a lot about Cain. RightScoop is very fair.

          • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

            “These are great people on this forum but telling the truth about Cain is a no no. The people here need to do some research before they form an opinion on Cain.”

            That’s over the top.

            We held Herman Cain in high esteem because at the least, he was willing to speak to the Constitutional issues, and also appeared to champion free markets. But 1) Nobody is unassailable, and 2) A real exchange of ideas is always allowed and encouraged (provided it’s on topic, or in an open thread).

            Herman Cain took quite a few lumps here. Some from Scoop, himself.

            I get a little tired of the folks who claim we don’t allow criticism here.

            “Criticism” isn’t the problem. Antagonism, trolling, and trying to pick a fight with inflammatory statements are what we keep a lid on.

            • John3_3

              williamm is correct and is the furthest thing from a troll. He decided to take his republican blinders off and look at the facts. Cain was ignorant on basic issues that faced this nation–that cannot be disputed. He lived an immoral life of adultery and was exposed for it. For “conservatives” to dismiss this type of behavior and lack of knowledge is appalling. Goes to show you how far some of us have fallen.

              • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                The primary was last year. Get over it. You made your point, and few here support it, so stop trolling us with this crap.

            • williamm

              I wasn’t accusing RS of not allowing criticism on here. During Cain’s run I was called a freeloader by members because I am against Cain’s policy of taking money away from people on SS and lining the pockets of his brothers of another mother. It’s not antagonism trolling, or trying to pick a fight when anyone presents facts .

              Do you think it was fair for Cain to impose a 9% consumption tax on people on SS that are already struggling to buy food and medicine?

              Do you think it’s ok to suddenly change the rules after senior citizens paid into the system for half a century.

              BTW, I never said anything negative against you until you accused me of losing my way to Daily KOS and you also insulted John3_3’s intelligence .

              “You base your entire criticism on that? What are you, new to politics?

              It’s like you’ve never seen video of a politician struggling to figure out what he wants to say.

              I can only imagine your shock and surprise that your supposed “smart” politicians typically change the subject to cover up the fact that they can’t answer the question.”

              Those are personal attacks on us which are against the rules and I think they are good rules whetheryou are a member or moderator.

              I would appreciate you reply to my questions about Cain’s plan to impose a tax on SS to give to his brothers.

              Have a nice day

              • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                I hit back against people who start out hitting. You can’t cover your own behavior by worrying about what’s happening with someone else’s comments. The fact is, he jumped in insulting the regulars, so I leveled a criticism. I did not call him a name, and I did not claim he was stupid: I pointedly referred to his lack of understanding—which was obvious—about the gaffes which have nothing to do with a person’s policies, positions, or record.

                If someone wants to stir up anger by claiming the people here can’t think for themselves, which BOTH of you did BEFORE I stepped in, then that person had better have the fortitude to stand up against criticism coming back.

                Criticism, you will note, that falls within the confines of the Comment Policy.

                At this point I am done arguing with you over the policy. It’s up to you to either comply with the Comment Policy or leave.

                And no I don’t care to respond to your question about Cain. The primary is over. He’s not running for office. He isn’t selling us on some stupid PAC that’s designed to shove the Tea Party aside, and he isn’t supportive of Obama’s massive totalitarian vision.

                He’s on our side.

                • williamm

                  I repeat, you broke the rules when you attacked me with your comment about the daily kos. If you want to ban me for speaking against Cain then do it.

                  Is this a praise Herman Cain thread or a thread where people can civily debate.

                  Must make you feel powerful to silence someone that disagrees with you.
                  Liberals do the same thing to anyone that speaks out against Obama.

                  You don’t need to worry about banning me. I have many other places where it’s ok to tell the truth.

                  Adios

                • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                  Back to the stupid “silencing” concept.

                  The First Amendment still works, and only one guy is in jail for following it, right now. So except for him (the guy who made the scapegoated video on which Barack blames Benghazi), no one is being silenced. Peddle that fantasy to someone else.

                • williamm

                  Guess you can’t help yourself. You are still violating the rule.

                  I have already told RS I no longer want to be a part of a forum where a moderator, you, break the rules by your Daily KOS comment and tben threaten me with this at the end of one of your comments to me.

                  ” Speaking as a Moderator that last point is not a suggestion. ”

                • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                  Your inability to comprehend the point of a moderated forum has grown tiresome. That wasn’t a threat, it was a warning. Do try and heed it.

      • Nukeman60

        What is the discrepancy between saying you’re for the 2nd amendment and saying it should be state’s decision? The 2nd amendment says the federal government shall not infringe upon our rights.

        Also, state law does not trump federal law. But in any case, how would a state take away the fact that the federal government shall not infringe upon our right to bear arms?

        I’m curious.

        • williamm

          He was talking about he thinks gun control should be decided by the states after saying he believes in the second amendment. Of course State laws can’t trunp the constitution, but he said it should. Watch it a few times please. Again, he said gun control should the states decision.

          How can anyone say no one can infringe on our Constitutional rights by saying he supports the second amendment , then say the states should have that power.

          He can’t support the second amenment and the states rights to infringe on that right. It’s one or the other.

          Please explain

          • John3_3

            It just proves how ignorant Cain is. I cannot believe how he gets a pass from so many. The man wanted to be elected PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES for crying out loud, he wasn’t running for student body president of the local high school!

    • John3_3

      Are you serous? Pushed aside? This man proved to be a buffoon, making a fool out of himself and his followers. There are MANY instances that prove he was NOT smart enough on the policies that are important to this country. Do you not think that his adultery being exposed had ANYTHING to do with him getting out of the race? I though conservatives stood for morals. Guess not when it’s one of our “own”. He wasn’t pushed aside, his race was over before he entered it. It was just a matter of time before his “smarts” were exposed.

      • williamm

        I don’t know if he’s guilty of adultery so I never bring that up just as I don’t know if the women are telling a lie. Unlike Cain backers I won’t blindly accuse the women of lying.

        I do think Cain should have filed a slander lawsuit againstthe women and wonder why he didn’t.

        I know I would have if Ihad nothing to hide.
        That would have settled that issue.

        Best to only provide info on things we can prove.

        • TLaMana

          You know as well as I that the accusation is far more important then facts.

          The accusation will grab headlines for weeks but the tidbit of info that it wasn’t true will only be known for one news cycle. By then the damage will already have been done and that is all they care about.

          • williamm

            As you know I don’t like Cain but still wish he had filed a lawsuit against the accusers.

            Someone I like less than Cain is Gloria Allred and would love to see her lose a case.

      • TLaMana

        It was a set up from Day One from those on the Left and those within the Establishment branch of the GOP. One was proven to not even be around until AFTER Cain left the company.

        I will agree that the Cain campaign could have handled it better and I was disappointed that he threw in the towel so fast but, you never know what he was threatened with if he didn’t withdraw.

  • Nukeman60

    I’m glad to see Herman Cain getting an opportunity to voice his views. Why am I worried that Fox will do to him like they did to Sarah Palin and keep him on a back burner?

    Just overly skeptical, I quess. Or have we been burnt too many times?

    • nibblesyble

      Burnt too many times Nuke…that is my fear as well.

    • John3_3

      Cain is ignorant on WAY too many issues to be able to intelligently contribute anything.

      • white531

        I’m also ignorant on most issues. Can you perhaps elaborate on the issues that Herman Cain is ignorant on? Since this seems to be such a firm belief you hold, I would seek your wisdom on the subject.

        I’m holding my breath, awaiting your wisdom. Please enlighten me.

        • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

          They want us to ignore all the other evidence of his intelligence, and focus solely on a few goofups on the campaign trail. You know, as if campaigning were something as important as, oh, I don’t know, running a major corporation and making it highly profitable. Which is so easy, I’m sure both of those guys did it, like, mmm probably a hundred times or something.

          • John3_3

            K-Bob a few goof-ups?? Really?? You call these goof=ups? Running a corporation is not the same as being the President of the US. You do know the difference, don’t you?

            CAIN: I don’t buy beer. You have to start with the biggest tax cut a lot of Americans pay, which is the payroll tax, 15.3%. That goes to 9%. That’s a 6 percentage point difference, and the prices will not go up. So they’ve got a 6 percentage point difference to apply to the national sales tax piece of that, and in doing so they have the flexibility to decide on how much they want to spend it on new goods, how much they want to spend it on used goods, because there is no tax on used goods.

            BACHMANN: From my experience in Congress but also as a tax lawyer, the last thing you would do is give Congress another revenue stream, and this gives Congress a pipeline in a sales tax. Once you get a new revenue stream, you’re never going to get rid of it. When you take the 9-9-9 plan and you turn it upside down, I think the devil’s in the details.

            ——————

            It’s a lie that the payroll tax is 15.3%, except for self employed and that is a very small percentage of taxpayers.

            The payroll tax is 7.65 % for the individual and he knows that. Instead of a 6% decline it’s an additional 1.35%.

        How do you know he is ignorant? Have you talked to him? I would guess not.

        So a man like Herman Cain, who is an American businessman, who has reached a level in American business, that only a very few ever reach, is an ignorant human being. And you are smart enough to catch him in this attempt to fool the rest of us.

        You are special, for sure. Thank God you came along when you did.

          Here’s one

          Here’s another.

          Telling people to reread the constitution when it’s obvious he hasn’t Find Life,Liberty, amd Pursuit of happiness in the Constitution

          He doesn’t know the difference between the constitution and the Declaration Of Independence

        • williamm

          Forgot this one.

        Unlike, say a blog commenter.

    I wonder what the United States would be like today, if this good man had been president, don’t you?

    • Martin2717

      We’d be a heck of a lot better and the GOP might have taken back the Senate.

    Herman Cain is a solid voice for the general ideas of conservatism. I wish he’d have taken the time to get as informed on the Constitution and the founders (which really takes a couple of years of study) as his intelligence deserves.

    Future candidates for the GOP (or some better party) should take a lesson from his experience and really prepare the ground by getting all of the underlying principles well in hand.

    Mitt ran a (mostly) error-free campaign, but he rejected the challenge of becoming Constitutionally literate (by taking that study I mentioned). Thus he couldn’t really address things from a solid foundation. He failed to sell people on why they should dump Obama for him. And he blew it with the weakest, most vulnerable President in modern times.

    THIS GROUNDING IS CRITICAL.

    The old parable about a house on shifting sand applies to selling yourself or your cause. All the successful evangelical ministers know their Bible inside and out, and WHY. All the best car salesmen know their market and the best sales techniques inside out. All the greatest NBA coaches know the game foundationally first, and they know coaching, as a discipline, from its foundations as well. You can’t coach a winning team without knowing why you’re doing all the small things as well as the large. You can’t build a business like Apple without knowing your main mission down deep in your soul.

    A winning conservative candidate MUST be able to explain the founding principles, the reasons for the clauses and amendments in the Constitution, and basic things such as “what is an unalienable right?”

    Think about that one just a moment. Have you ever tried to define what a “right” is? It’s not at all easy. John Locke wrote a very thick book trying to do so. A host of problems crop up when trying to nail down basic concepts. These problems were VERY well known in Jefferson’s day. Great men whose books we still hold in high regard struggled for years over the basic concepts that informed Jefferson and Madison and the founders.

    No wonder then, that so few politicians sound as knowledgeable as say Mark Levin, when discussing issues. Mark isn’t a scientist, but he can definitely address scientific issues, like mad cow disease or climate research from a political standpoint because he truly understands the foundations of liberty, and therefore how they apply to public policy on science. It’s the same with all other disciplines. If you understand the foundations of liberty, you can apply them to any discipline, with regard to public policy.

    The vast majority of politicians do it exactly the other way around. They claim you have to be an expert in chemistry if you want to craft legislation concerning chemistry. That’s bunk.

    Herman ought to take the time to make that study. He can read Thomas Sowell, if nothing else.

      There is more than his lack of knowledge. I’ve posted this before.

      In July 2011 when talking about the second phase of his plan,the FairTax, He said every family deserves a prebate.

      On October 16 of 2011 he wrote an article On North star Writers Group.

      9 responses to 9 false attacks on the 999 plan

      Claim 4: The plan should have included a pre-bate to offset the sales tax.

      Cain’s response.

      The last thing we need is to establish another federal entitlement, which the proposed pre-bate would quickly become.

      Why would a prebate under the 999 plan be another Federal entitlement and not under the Fair Tax plan.

      Back to the second amendment issue.

      Him thinking the states should decide gun legislation is not a simple little gaffe.

      It was his opinion and that is serious.

      You are willing to forget things like that the way the Obamabots forget what Obama has done to this country.

      This country is in too much trouble to blimdly follow any politician the way you do.

      I’m happy Cain will be on Fox News. More time to expose his real problems.

      Have a good day.

        “This country is in too much trouble to blimdly follow any politician the way you do.”

        Making assumptions not in evidence is a liberal tactic. It smacks of desperation. Add to that the over-reliance on nitpicking from the primary (hint: the primary was last year, get over it) to simply discredit a man who is clearly a decent human being, clearly intelligent (or did you skip over the fact that he was a highly successful business executive?), and obviously conservative, even though he’s not a Constitutional scholar, makes you sound like you have lost your way to the Daily Kos.

        You’ve made your point. You don’t like the man. Don’t start trolling about it.

        • williamm

          There you sound like a Paulbot wanting to silence anyone you disagree with. Get over yourself. If you had a brain you would know from my posts about liberals and what they are doing to this country. I had a lot of respect for you before but that is gone. Anyone that tries to make excuses for a man that thinks the states should make decisions on gun control is either a closet liberal or worse.

          The Second amendment is the only thing that stands between us and the destruction of this country. We can come back from any disaster Obama causes except the loss of second amendment rights.

          I didn’t want to make this something against you but you started it by accusing me of trolling.

          • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

            A) I’m not the one on some bizarre jihad against Herman Cain, you are. This isn’t the primary, he isn’t running for office, yet you come in here stamping your feet demanding nothing short of fullscale repudiation of the man.
            B)I’m not the one who started insulting the folks on this website.
            C) You don’t have to respect me to comment here, but you damn well will respect the folks who hang out here.
            D) I didn’t “accuse you of trolling” I told you NOT to start trolling. As in fine, you made your point, now don’t keep on and on and on about it.
            E) Now, in addition to accusing Cain of being some sort of mental deficient, you’ve decided I have no brain. My wife might agree with that point, but your making it here is against the rules, and shows you are at a station where you had better walk away, take a deep breath, and reconsider your mission, because you are not helping the conservative cause with this crap.

            Speaking as a Moderator that last point is not a suggestion.

            • williamm

              So you are using your position as a moderator to silence me. Go for it.

              • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                Now you’re being petulant. That always improves your message.

                Here’s an idea: Just read what I wrote and pretend like that’s what I actually wrote.

                • williamm

                  You talk about rules yet you violated them when you insulted the intelligence of John3_3 with your comment.

                  ” You base your entire criticism on that? What are you, new to politics?

                  It’s like you’ve never seen video of a politician struggling to figure out what he wants to say.

                  I can only imagine your shock and surprise that your supposed “smart” politicians typically change the subject to cover up the fact that they can’t answer the question.”

                  Then you said to me

                  ” makes you sound like you have lost your way to the Daily Kos.”

                  Do you play the game that rules are for thee but not for me?

    • white531

      Or he could just hang out more with Allen West. :)

        They ought to be best buds by now!

    I’ve been disappointed with Fox’s TV (and radio before its demise on SiriusXM) hosts soft pedaling of 0 as incompetent when he’s obviously trying to dismantle the economy and rewrite the constitution on Charmin. Maybe Cain will bring a little sense to the network.

    Time to get rid of Juan Williams!!
