Gloria and Herman Cain were among those who stepped forward.

    Herman, black people using the victim card does not fly that well in the GOP, just ask Michael Steele, or as real proof, ask Barry, we tried to warn you, but you didn't want to listen, the fact that you started leading, you have a target on your back, and the best sharpshooter in the GOP Karl Rove, will definitely go for the kill getting you out of the way.

    The funniest thing about all of this, is your not taking your own advice, Don't blame anyone else, BLAME YOURSELF!

    There is no democratic organization that would want to discredit Herb, because he would be fun to run against in the election. While I try not to be a conspiracy theorist, it sure smells that Rove is 'swiftboating' him.

    Now that he has been brought up about morality, he trots out his wife.

    How much did Herman pay his family to show up and support him? What a joke. Herman Cain's new name is "Mr. Do Over"

    Cain is not to be trusted, i would never take him serious as a presidential candidate, his fast talking Don King type of personality and says wise cracks out of his mouth and changes his story in a wink of an eye no way, i would tell him to stay in the pizza biz.

    "At this time, Mrs. Cain is not participating in interviews. When this changes, we will be in touch," the campaign said in a statement last week
    Finally! There she is the other half of Team KochCain.
    Where do I begin?
    Cain must recognize that other candidates spouses are out there campaigning with them. At the very least we've met them. This is, after all, a run for the highest office in this country. You CANNOT keep your wife under wraps behind claims that it is "grueling...she's needed at home..etc". There is a civic duty to fully commit to your candidacy. IF you were ever to become President, your wife would be our First Lady. You and her TOGETHER would be the face of our country here and abroad. Is it too much to ask to see what we'd end up with should you be elected President? Or would you leave the little Mrs. at home while you resided in the White House by yourself?
    Civic duty, part of campaigning for the office of the presidency. It is inconvenient, grueling, tiring all of the above, but it goes with the TRUE committment from a SERIOUS candidate, and his wife, running for the office of President of the United States.
    Hate to inconvenience you and your family, but it is what it is. Unconventionality can only be taken but so far. Keep your wife in the game, if you're serious that is.

    Does she know how crooked his campaign manager is? Does HE?

    Money problems coming, folks, in the form of mis-using Non-Profit money. It ain't pretty.

    On a totally different note let me be amongst those that APPLAUD your 43 year marriage. It is indeed a phenomenal accomplishment especially in this day and age.
    May God continue to bless your union for many, many years to come.

    Maybe you FORCED him to finally produce his wife.
    Job well done.

    As for Cain – she's about what I expected....
    How she's managed to stay with this jerk for so long is remarkable.
