    Herman Cain has written 113 columns for leading birther website

    Herman Cain has written 113 columns for leading birther website | The Ticket - Yahoo! News

    For the past two years, Herman Cain has written a weekly column for WorldNetDaily, a website that is the online hub for people who believe that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States.


    Not one of Cain's 113 columns broaches the topic of Obama's birth. He has used his WorldNetDaily column to build support for his presidential candidacy, outline his policy ideas on health care and economics and clarify his positions on the campaign trail.


    Cain, a Georgia businessman who is running for the Republican presidential nomination, has catapulted in recent polls into the field's top tier, following his victory last month at the Florida straw poll. His decision to associate himself with the birther movement's flagship publication could hinder his attempt to shift from a tea party star into a leading Republican presidential candidate.

    WorldNetDaily regularly publishes articles by Jerome Corsi, the author of the book Where's the Birth Certificate?: The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible to Be President. Corsi alleges that Obama's birth certificate, released by the state of Hawaii, is a forgery.

    Hey, a conservative uses a conservative outlet to spread a conservative message, I'm shocked.

    Here's a tip, guilt by association is a fallacy.

    No one needs to worry about Cain. He won't win, but some of his messag(es) will sift through and be utilized because he does have a few good points. he is a smart man as well, but not really electable to the presidency.

    Was Cain defending the birther notions in these 113 articles or was he writing on other topics? That Cain is getting out his ideas on a conservative sites - even the rabidly conservative wingnut sites - does not mean he is dumb enough to have ever believed that Obama was born in Kenya.

    No, not surprised at all.

    I'm sure you could use the same guilty by association hatchet-job for anyone who writes for huffpo as well. Cain should be judged for his own words not the website he put them on.

    Not surprised that Herman Cain is now the target of phony attack stories like this one, that twist the facts and attempt to deceive the public into believing things that simply are not true.

    One word describes that article... PATHETIC... On to the next liberal fabrication.
