No proof at all, that I know of but he should go ahead and drop out. He's done. At first, I supported him but there has been just too much mis-handling of things to suit me. He should have to prove he's innocent and it's not whether he's guilty or not that swayed my support. I supported him cause he seemed like a straight shooter who would get it done, no matter what. Then, the story broke and he came out about it soft. It was the first time he acted like a politician to me. If he did nothing wrong he should have came out strong and condemned his accusers. He was soft like he didn't want to infuriate the accusers and make things worse. Then there is him saying he'd have experts to guide him on the subjects that he was lacking in. If those cabinet experts were anything like his campaign experts, it's possible (though hard to conceive) he would do worse than our current president. Allegations such as the ones brought forth during a campaign would have to be considered a crisis and I don't want any crisis that is nation wide handled like the ones during his campaign.

The mainstream media blitzed Cain. Regardless if it is true or not, you would never see this type of coverage if it were a Democrat. Obama was buddies with Bill Ayers who is a terrorist that bombed sites domestically and his pastor and good friend was Rev. Wright who has rhetoric that should get him tossed from this country. Did this spray the headlines of NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN or any of the major print media? Nope! If the charges on Cain prove true, I would rather a lady chaser take office than what we have now, which is a socialist that has a hatred for America and all it stands for.

Do you idiots not realize that Cain entered the race while writing a book? This whole "campaign" is just material for the book. Yes, it took off beyond his wildest dreams and he got more exposure (good and bad) than anticipated. I'm sure he didn't plan on some of the girls going public. It doesn't matter if you believe the women or him, but they aren't all liars. Two actually want to be tested on a lie detector. Anyway, he was never a viable candidate so now he can make a mil on the book deal.

I would like to have a candidate enter the race that is both morally and smart enough to run this country. This is something that we haven't had since Reagan. As a registered Republican, I believe he should drop out of the race, but the pickings are slim for the Republican party. I so wanted Mike Huckabee to run.

And what color would Obama be on the inside, high yellow ? I guess Cain isn't "down with the struggle," since he has made himself a success. Would you consider him to be black on the inside if he was slinging dope and robbing convenience stores?

You got it all wrong, Obama is high yellow on the outside and straight up socialist on the inside. It is funny to hear Obama talk to a group that is primarily made up of black folks, he sounds like a black man from South Alabama or South Georgia. Yet, when he talks to his white union thugs, his dialect changes considerably. If you wonder about how Obama thinks, read his book 'Dreams of My Father', but before doing that, read up about the alcoholic, hard-line socialist that his father was who never gave two shiiits about his son or his family. This is the man Obama looks up to, even though Obama really never knew him.

Read the book 'The Roots of Obama's Rage', which paints a fact based picture of our great leader.

Good God, people. First, Herman Cain's "campaign tour" was more or less a book signing/selling tour. Second, he was never seeking anything more than a Fox News hosting position. Sources inside his campaign have even confirmed this.

Let's lay all common sense and logic aside for just a moment and suppose that Herman Cain WAS a legitimate candidate. Consider the impact of these women who are coming forward. It's disgusting how my fellow Republicans are trashing these women as "money-grubbing, lying hos". How could this be some grand conspiracy? Women from literally all over the country have come forward and alleged he either has sexually harassed them or carried on extramarital affairs with them. Why would all these women, who didn't even know each other, come forward? Furthermore, do you honestly believe his justification of this latest allegation? "Yes, I did help her out financially, and I did consider her a friend, and yes, it's true my wife knew nothing about this, but I didn't have a relationship with her?"

It's amazing the conspiracies we'll believe about Barack Obama (some of those that verge on the absurd) that have no evidence that back them up, but when there are multiple allegations against Herman Cain with pretty substantial evidence to back it up, we still paint it as some sort of mass media/liberal conspiracy.

Then again, hypocrisy has always been one of humanity's biggest weaknesses.

The issue is with the over the top media coverage that Cain received on the allegations. As I mentioned above, during Obama's time in office and run up to his being elected president, there were tons of things that surfaced that would have been mainstream media headlines had it been a conservative, but major issues were rarely mentioned. And it isn't a "conspiracy" to call Obama a socialist. Read his own writings, look at the people he is connected with and look at his policy and rhetoric. As I mentioned above, read 'The Roots of Obama's Rage', which provides a detailed glimpse into Obama's life and logic in policy through facts that were essentially exponged from Obama's own words.

And yes, as a conservative, I feel it is time for him to realize that his chance of being elected in non-existent and the time has come for him to drop out of the race. Glad to see Newt taking such a strong lead in the polls, as he is the best choice in the GOP field.

Yup, Newt is the cream of the crop, expelled as House Speaker, fined $300,000 by his peers, 3 times married, divorced 2 women when they got cancer, sucked over a million out of Freddie/Fannie as a "historian", flip-flops worse than Romney..........yup, this is the best the Republicans have to offer.....wow.

Oh, you must have received the liberal medias talking points on Newt. Nice! As for his martial issues, that is really none of my concern. Clinton cheated on his wife while he was in office and he is still a hero to most liberals. Newt admits that the person he is has changed. As for the fine, below is a good reference article. Bottom line, this was another liberal smear without merit.

I am not taking Herman Cain's side. All that I am saying is that if a black conservative like Cain or Clarence Thomas becomes successful, liberals call them oreos or Uncle Toms. If a black liberal becomes successful, he is true to his ethnic roots , and down with the struggle. Nice double standard.

The Cain issue is not a race issue but rather if he can be trusted to be a viable candidate for the conservative party. Today he has withdrawn his bid. I believe this is the best thing for him to do. I think our morals have gotten so low in this country that we would make Satan president if he promised us a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow. As a conservative, I am not a fan of Newt or Romney. I would like to see someone who isn't a career politician run for the White House. Someone who has experience running a big corporation with success. Someone who doesn't cheat on his wife. Someone who doesn't pander to anyone but has the best interest of this Country at heart. Someone who can and will make the tough decisions of doing what is necessary to get our government's big spending under control. Is this to much to ask?

Romney is not perfect, but he is closest to meeting your five criteria. I am pretty sure he meets the first three. The last two, I'm not so positive, but who knows for sure about any of them?

What does God have to do with it? While He is in control of all situations, He gives us freedom to make our own choices. This being said, I agree with you, the picking are slim indeed.

I guess that we should get Obama for 4 more then, since he is obviously perfect?
