    Re: Supporting Cain, GOP base evokes Thomas hearings

    Enjoyed Stewart on this:

    However, Stewart did find some fault with Cain's method of denial in the matter involving two female employees of the National Restaurant Assn. He rolled a clip in which a Fox News anchor asked Cain if he'd ever paid off anyone who'd accused him of sexual harassment. "At the restaurant association," he replied. "Now outside the restaurant association, absolutely not."

    "You can't just go 'Well, other than that, no,'" Stewart said. He drew an analogy: "Have you ever kidnapped a baby? Well, other than the Lindbergh boy, no."

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Oh please, I thought that Clinton taught us that claims of indiscretion are meaningless due to the fact that 1. a Presidential level person should not have their personal life taken against them. 2. The women making the charge always have to be outed and labeled. So as long as Cain doesn't lie to a Federal Judge he should be in the clear, right?

    Yet nary a word....ever....about Clinton, Edwards, Ted Kennedy, etc.

    The women claim sexual harassment, even though they were never directly addressed, touched, or spoken to. And they won't step forward (even though the media is begging them to). Expect MSNBC to offer these women millions to come forward and tell of the "gesture" that Cain made.

    Good gawd, on that basis we could take down the whole Democratic party in an afternoon.

    This rather summed it up nicely.

    "high-tech lynching" was from the news story. You should ask the author which conservatives made those statements instead of indicating that all republicans chose the phrase.

    If you have ever been wrongly accused of something serious, you don't forget it. It's a very personal attack against you. I doubt Cain initially failed to recall the details.
    Again, it's the cover-up that gets you.

    If he had come out and told his side of the story to start once the story broke, this would have all gone away by now. But he didn't. It makes him look shady and dodgy.

    all imho
    I may be wrong.

    But it's all a matter of perspective. If he's innocent orguilty, it could be that he never took it seriously. It could be either that he knew he was innocent and didn't worry hismelf with it, or it could be that he was guilty but felt he did nothing worth worrying over. There are plenty of times I've been put on the hot seat for something and I couldn't give you exact details. I vaguely remember an incident when I thought a former employer would be sued over my actions, but I couldn't tell you exact details...and that incident was only about 6 years ago, not 20.

    Information will come out, and hopefully in a timely manner. When it does, I'll judge. Until then I don't want to cast aspersions against him or make Chicken Little claims.

    And what 'sitting' President was that?
