Cain again denies harassment allegations in GOP debate

Rochester, Michigan (CNN) - Appearing Wednesday at a presidential debate in Michigan focused primarily on economic matters, Republican Herman Cain again faced down questions about the sexual harassment scandal that has engulfed his campaign and the Republican race for the White House.

"Why should the American people hire a president if they feel there are character issues?" Cain was asked by one of the moderators, Maria Bartiromo of CNBC, in the early moments of the debate.

    He's toast. It's all he can do to keep telling the same lies over and over again. I wouldn't trust him to sit my cat or dog (females).

    (Mc) Cain Failed tonight with not being able to answer questions. Perry Is also done. Newt and Paul are the only two intelligent candidates on the platform.

    Republicans what are you going to do? You boo questions you don't like , think the media hates you, don't like more than half the people in this country ie aliens,Mormons, Muselems, pro choicers, poor,unemployed ect..ect. Who will be left for your party? Not everyone in this country will become rich. Middle class is what makes us great!! There are rich all over this world in every land . Not a middle class! I like being middle class so do something for us!!

    If their is character issues, as it is, this person is not qualified to appear in the Media. Halloween is passed. He is scary looking. Let him appear only once per year, in October.

    There are not GOBP candidates who have any sort of "character" that reflects positively on themselves or their crazy deathcult.

    Mr. Cain's arrogance does not bother me as much as his ignorance does. I have no doubt that he used his power to harass women who were subordinate to him. I also have no doubt he is woefully ill prepared to lead our great nation. President Obama is the only choice for 2012!
