    The best thing Cain do is come out clean. He needs to talk like a average citizen and not like a politician. If he did all the harassment, ask for forgiveness. I know he did what he had been accused to do by these women. These women cannot make it all up. It shows a pattern on his part.
    If he is sincere and ask for forgiveness, American are great in forgiving and forgetting sincere apologies!

    Herman I am with you. Don't let the left punch you... Punch them back and defend yourself.

    If he did buy her dinner, drinks, and put her up in a nice hotel, what did she think was afoot? If he made a move or two, and she said no, that is not harrasment, that is a date. She said he did the appropriate thing, when she said no, he stopped what he was doing.

    I think the woman is a bimbo looking for her 15 minutes of fame. Just another strap hanger looking to capitalize on her date with Mr. Cain.

    Expect something reminiscent of a slow speed police chase with his friend AC Cowlings tomorrow. This guy will never admit he did anything wrong, just like OJ and he is going to end up being shunned for it.

    II'd say the guy has to drop out (though, I don't think he is gonna). The GOP can't nominate him. If there is any truth to these accusations, when will the next accuser surface? Perhaps a day or two before the General Election? We can't have that. True or not, Cain needs to drop out.

    Gloria Alred is such a political hack that in my opinion, accuser #4 should have stayed away from her if the accuser wanted to go public. I have a hard time taking this accuser at her word with Gloria Alred involved.

    Go Herman!!! You have so many people behind you. Have been reading tonight of investigators hot on the trail of this bimbo....filed bankruptcy twice, has several frivolous lawsuits pending to "get money". Curious that she comes from Chicago! Latest info is about a $5 million dollar deposit in a different name in an offshore account headed her way!! No wonder she doesn't want to SUE (then why Allred?????) Other rumors about similar plans being set in motion against Romney.....this isn't over yet, not by a longshot.... Integrity and courage, Mr. Cain!!!! Perhaps the left will at last be exposed for their dirty tricks....................

    Well bout time bring out the angry mob of women who were so mad they took money and waited a whole decade to say something. Political vetting is really b.s. that what's holding great canidates back from even trying to wholed public office no one is perfect and everyone has personal flaws. So as a country we need to just stop feeding into this junk thag keeps us from focusing on our real problems like corporations and special intrest that have highjavked our whole political process.

    When Clinton got exposed, for what he was doing currently, the media yawned. Now that Cain has been exposed for something that supposed to have happened 15 years ago, the media is in a frenzy. It seems to me that the media has its collective head so far up Obama's nether region that they couldn't tell if it was daylight at noon in Phoenix.

    I wish that that liar Cain would do us all a favor and drop out and spare us all the drama and additional lies. Cain is about as much of a Republican as is Al Gore and he needs to simply drop out and never look back.

    Herman Cain is a hypocrite if any of these allegations are true and it looks like there is a real problem here. He is supposedly a minister in the church. God Bless his wife and I wish her strenght during this time of doubt.

    We know now that, if Cain stays in the race, the DNC will bring in another woman who will claim further sexual abuse by him. They can generate a new woman every week and, if that's not enough to stop him, they'll use children. Cain is a serious threat to the DEEPLY RACIST Democrat Party. They have to bring him down. - I never thought Cain would be the nominee of the RNC but this is grossly unjust. The media can't get enough of the journalistic abuse they have heaped on Cain. - He would be wise to stop running. I wish him well. The reporting is not just. I will work to defeat the DNC and the media.

    Regardless of what people think of Herman Cain, this man is lieing through his teeth! Four women have all accused him of sexual harassment and now we have a face, name, and picture. He didn't handle it very well from the beginning. Anyone with common sense running for POTUS know that any skeleton in your closet will be dug up from the grave. You don't attack reporters and media for asking legitimate questions Cain! If you can't deal with the pressure from the press get out of the kitchen, you want be able to handle it if you were POTUS. Heck, the media gave President Obama a hard time especially on Bill Ayers, Rev Wright, birth certificate, clinging to your guns, Joe the plummer, and his biological father! He don't yell at the media and he addresses the question whether we like it or not. See Cain you were a big time CEO and you bossed people around we down need people bossing us around in the White House. You don't know how to talk to be and it appears to you talk down on your own kind just because you say its their fought because they don't have a JOB like the Koch brothers supplying your campaign. We weren't born yesterday Cain!

    What liberals did against Clarence Thomas, that didn't work, is being tried against Herman Cain. Facts people, we need facts something like a stained dress, DNA, witnesses, etc. Hell, I'll go on the limb and ask for prove that Cain upgraded to a suite. Let's start there.

    It's unfortunate that we have to watch the same playbook play out as we did when Clarance Thomas was about to rise to the highest judicial office. If Cain was still in single digits, this would never have seen the light of day. Instead, it would have been a similar issue against whomever the front-runner would have been.

    The real story is that Cain and his team handled this terribly and if the way he runs a primary campaign is any indication of how he runs an general election and eventually running the country and handling a Crisis..sounds like a recipe for disaster.

    He needs to be called out on the frailty of his leadership, total unpreparedness(he had 10 days to respond to Politico), poor lack of judgment regarding this.

    Cain is going to deny all of it and he is going to further blame the victims. If two women were paid off and a third is remaining silent – and now there is a 4th woman and possibly more – then, it is true. Even if ONE of the stories were true – it's true!!!
