Any reactions?November 6, 2011 2:52 am at 2:52 am #824316aries2756Participant
I didn’t see it, but I lost respect for Cain. I didn’t back him to begin with because I believe a President should pay his dues in the trenches. If you have no experience in the political arena and no history or record that people can check on in regard to how you helped your constituency, then you have no business expecting Americans to trust you and vote for you. We learned a great deal from the fiasco that is the current presidency.November 6, 2011 2:55 am at 2:55 am #824317GumBallMember

Gumball- what does your teacher say in current events?

I didn’t watch it, however I am still with Cain, since these allegations have not been proven and as of now they mean nothing at all.
Regarding the point that Aries mentioned, to me, a businessman Cain is the the BEST solution! For the reason you mentioned. We had enough of politicians. They work only for votes, don’t really understand how to bring back the times when America was actually a country that manufactured things.
Cain does, he understands that the private sector is what made American jobs. He shares my beliefs and ideas with the economy.
I sure hope he wins!November 6, 2011 7:28 pm at 7:28 pm #824321GumBallMember
nah…Same old black…
I just pick the most handsome one..(Romney) AHHH!!! LOLNovember 6, 2011 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #824322aries2756Participant
2cents, like Bloomberg? Yeah he did a great jobs closing hospitals, fire houses and police stations. Everyone in NY is just so happy and chipper with the way he is running things. The cops are the most corrupt they have ever been, the sanitation department stinks, and the city is run like it has no leader. Is that what you want for the entire country? Not me.November 6, 2011 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm #824323musicaldignityMember
I did not see it but personally I do not understand why Gingrich is not popular. He is easily the most intelligent, he is very personable, he does not resort to attacking his fellow candidates, and has a very good sense of humor. I happen to like Cain as well, and these recent allegations urge me to send him a check not change my opinion of him. I think Gingrich is not getting as much attention as he deserves.November 6, 2011 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #824324
Why are you comparing Bloomberg to Cain?
Because they are both businessmen?!
I still think that my points are valid, this is besides the fact that he is straight forward. Unlike other political candidates.November 6, 2011 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #824325
It’s the politicians that opened the door for China. Lifting the quotas, punishing the factories and taxing the factories.
How can we compete with China if we are being limited??
Cain knows that, for some reasons other politicians don’t. It’s not only about temporary tax breaks, there is a deeper problem here.November 6, 2011 9:25 pm at 9:25 pm #824326akupermaParticipant
It was sort of staged between them.
Gingrich is a relic from the past with a really messed up personal history even if he says he’s repented.
The charges against Cain may be racist propaganda. So far he’s only been accused of flirting and being rude, but not of adultery or the like.November 6, 2011 10:03 pm at 10:03 pm #824327OneOfManyParticipant
I don’t have any opinion on Cain, but I agree with 2scents on one point – the career politician-types, by virtue of being politicians, are most likely to change their agendas to suit themselves. No matter how little/much experience they have under their belts.November 7, 2011 1:47 am at 1:47 am #824328
Cain has been pretty consistent with his stance on the burning issues, this is what got him popular.
I still remember one of the early debates in which the candidates have been asked if they would or would not show the photos of the dead Osama.
all of them answered that they would, however it was clear that this is not THEIR position, rather what something that is popular.
Cain was the only one to answer NO. he said it without a blink shot it straight out.
he is a straight shooter, and knows what he believes in. and it so happens to be that on most issues he is on the right side.November 7, 2011 2:48 am at 2:48 am #824329EzratHashemMember
The debate last night was an effort by Gingrich to take the debates out of the hands of the mainstream media and make them into more educational than entertainment events. Cain’s misadventures were not mentioned at all in this debate, it dealt only with the candidates future plans for medicare, medicaid and social security, in other words, the entitlement programs. It was a very informative and intelligent debate, with no moderator demanding 30 second answers to questions designed to entertain the audience. Gingrich said he will have a few more of this type of debate, which he claims is based on the Lincoln-Douglas debates, and also by theway, which no major media company agreed to carry. Only C-Span streamed it live. And the comments of the other media outlets after the debate were strictly concerning a comment Cain made when pressed by a reporter about the allegations. They just couldn’t let go of it and report on what really happened there—an intelligent debate on the economy. Gingrich also said that if he were nominated as the Republican candidate, he would invite Obama to debate him in a like manner, and if Obama refused, he will follow Obama to all of his speaking engagements and speak after him (to refute him). An interesting guy, Gingrich.
