BLITZER’S BLOG: Cain’s testiness understandable, but….

(CNN) – The latest twists in the Herman Cain sexual harassment allegations remind me of so many other similar stories we've seen play out in Washington over the years.

No matter how the story begins, you don't know where it will wind up.


Watch The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer weekdays at 4pm to 6pm ET and Saturdays at 6pm ET. For the latest from The Situation Room click here.

    No buts........CNN is not reporting news anymore. They are now political activists, supporting the Democrats. That is blatantly obvious.

    You can't claim to be reporting news, when you are attacking someone, with absolutely nothing but innuendo to go on. That makes you absolutely political attack artists.

    I am not a fan of Cain's, but that is for the right reasons......I don't agree with his 9-9-9 plan, at all. It is bad for the middle class and poor.

    However, I do know these attacks were no where near as severe, with Clinton.......who deserved them far more than the evidence now suggests, with regards to CNN is simply showing how they have become devoted to a particular political party, and ideology.

    People need to be wary of the media when they have a political agenda.

    Come on Wolf, a former CEO should darn well have known this would come out and should’ve had his statement ready to go. I don't even think his campaign advisor were told about possible accusations.....big mistake.

    He would NEVER get the media and pundits to SHUT UP!!
    But Cain's problem is when TRAPPED – he cannot think fast enough
    Could you imagine what he'll do @ 3AM when that call wakes him up????

    I cannot imagine – therefore, Obama 2012

    "Understandable"???? What? Wolf, Herman Cain is running for the presidency of the United States, if he can't think on his feet, if he can't be articulate, if his campaign with 10 days notice that this story was coming out could not have prepared their candidate, then......... Mr. Cain is not..... repeat....... not...... ready to be president of the United States.

    Not a single GOP candidate has my vote, I am a registered Independent, who will again vote for OBAMA!

    "No buts........CNN is not reporting news anymore. They are now political activists, supporting the Democrats. That is blatantly obvious."

    You're running a little behind reality. It appears Rick Perry's camp put the dogs on Mr. Cain and now they're piling on. I don't recall Rick Perry being a Democrat... lately. CNN is reporting an event likely to knock a major player out of contention. Did you call them Republicans when they reported Bill Clinton's activities?

    To Rick McDipstick –

    So where is your faux outrage for Fox Nonsense and the whole conservative media clan (or clansmen) their attacks on President Obama over his patriotism, his faith, and his BIRTHPLACE??? Hypocrite!

    The issue is not whether he's lieing, but to what extent he's willing to cover up the matter. His desire to be leader of the free world must be quite a burden, There must be quite a reward, to put up with the press, as well as the investigations. Can not imagine any person gulable enough to beleve it's because he thinks he can save the country. Save it from what?

    It's the same old thing. It's not the act, it's the cover-up, response, lack of response or whatever you want to call it. A few days of heat in no way compare to the months and years of relentless coverage President Clinton went through. and what ever one thinks of President Bush, he withstood tons of mocking and took it like a man. One has to have a thick skin to be POTUS. If this is too much for Cain now, he may as well quit.
