    I never said he did it for fun, I said your claim that he wouldn't have won it isn't backed up by any evidence.

    And where is your proof that Obama had anything to do with this information being released about Cain.

    2) The Restaurant Association, of which he was Chairman at the time, paid off both women, on condition that neither party be allowed to disclose the circumstances.

    Here is where it gets very interesting:

    3) After the Politico article came out, Herman Cain said that the women falsely accused him.

    4) In making that statement, the confidentiality agreement is now voided.

    5) Which means the women who made the accusations are no longer bound by that agreement. They are free to come forward and speak up.

    6) If they don't, then nothing happened in the first place, and both women were out to extort a buck by making the accusations in the first place.

    Put it all together, and it shows that:

    a) At this time, Herman Cain appears to be telling the truth.

    b) Cain chose an ingenious method with which to defend himself from a false accusation. Had he not violated the confidentiality agreement, he could very well have been tarred and feathered with this accusation. Now, he dares the accusers to come out with their accusations, and gets to face his accusers.

    Whatever you might say about Cain, he is a pretty savvy guy, and until some proof is brought forward that he committed sexual harrassment, his stock just went up in my book. I still would not vote for him, but he earns my respect.
    First he said there was a payout...then he said later that day no one was paid. How is this a good thing in the rpublican world?

    Then why did Cain say he paid off one of the girls? (Well, of course he is backtracking HIM saying this). Somehow HIM saying this is the liberal media's lynching. lol

    The women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them financial payouts to leave the association. The agreements also included language that bars the women from talking about their departures.
    He should have been cooked already, he either changes his mind or can't remember what he said 24 hours after he made a statement, nice guy unfortunately he has some kind of memory problem.

Heck, my dad knew an older guy who got fired for calling a woman hon, she assumed he was being a dirty old man but he literally called all women hon, it was just his way of speaking. In my opinion there are legitimate cases of sexual harrassment and then there is the other 95% that was in the catagory of someone making things bigger than they were.
    I tell dirty jokes. In fact, I don't know any good jokes that I can tell in mixed company. As a result I don't tell those jokes in mixed company, and I definitely don't tell them in any situation where any female colleagues could hear me. That is one way that you can avoid getting hit with sexual harassment claims.

    I certainly never refer to any woman I work with as hon, or honey, or anything like that. That is another way that you can avoid getting hit with a sexual harassment claim.

    Most importantly, I do not make unwanted sexual advances towards my female co-workers. I don't do that, and they should not have to put up with any guy they work with doing that. I met my wife where we both worked at the time, but I did not make unwanted advances at work. Meeting future wives or girlfriends is quite common in the workplace. There is a difference between that and making unwanted sexual advances towards your coworkers. The fact is, to be accused of sexual harassment, and for that accusation to be credible enough for you to have to pay them, then its not just some slip of the tongue, its an unwanted sexual advance, or being extremely inappropriate with a female coworker.

    Wow. I didn't realize that Cain had more than three years experience as the POTUS. I missed that one. Did he slip in there between Clinton and Bush? No, that could not be as he was busy negotiating a settlement to his sexual harassment stuff. It must have been earlier.

    ...or maybe you are suggesting that X years experience running a pizza franchise better qualifies one to be POTUS than actually having experience as a POTUS. Is it me, or are regressives increasingly making less and less sense? Wait, they have Herman Cain leading in the polls. I guess I answered my own question,

    Re: Two women accused Herman Cain of inappropriate behavior

    Herman Cain told a co-worker that she was about his wifes height. Bill Clinton pulled his britches down and told Paula Jones to get on her knees. And what about Jeniffer Flowers and Monica Lewinsky. this little bump in the road to the white house is being blown out of proportion by the media.

    perspective please.

    Let's face it folks, Liberalism is already on the ropes. A black Republican winning the presidential nomination will only serve to drive another nail in the coffin.
    An uppity nigger? Oh yea, I'm sure that BS will fly, especially after a black man DID win the Democratic nomination. Last I heard, he became president.

    Race bait much?

And since we hold the office of the President of the United States in such high regards...

    Put this way, how many of you were pissed off at former President Clinton over his behavior during the Monika Lewinski sex scandal?

    What about John Edwards and his affair that's still before the legal system?

    Ted Kennedy and Chapaquitick?

    JFK and Marline Monroe?

    Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill?

    The governor who left the country trailing behind his Mistress in South America?

    And how about the most recent sex scandle involving the NY Democrat who resigned because sex pics were posted online but he claimed his Facebook account was hacked? (His name escapes me at the moment...)

    Sex and politics just don't mix especially when you're of a political party that claims to hold itself up to beholding to "strong moral fiber" and be so God-fearing.

    Look, clearly Herman Cain conducted himself inappropriately. Why else would he settle out of court? The issue shouldn't be "this is all old news", but rather "how well does this speak to his character to be President/Commander and Chief"? That's what we should be looking at.
    Exactly. People are missing the point in this. The candidates are going to be vetted. It is a part of our process. We find out how presidential a guy is by his ability to manage the crisis. If he succumbs to this because either A) its a serious problem or B) he simply mishandles the issue now, he should be flushed out of the race.... the sooner the better for all involved. If, on the other hand, he gains control of the issue and can manage through it, it passes a very important test.

    The people that are whining about the "main street media" or "liberals hate black conservatives"... well, those people should spend more time managing their fantasy football teams, as they are out of their league/ knowledge set at DP.
