Cain to make campaign announcement Saturday

Atlanta (CNN) - Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain is expected to address the future of his presidential campaign Saturday at the scheduled opening of a Georgia campaign headquarters.

"Tomorrow in Atlanta, I will be making an announcement," he said Friday at a town hall meeting in Rock Hill, South Carolina. "But nobody's going to get me to make that prematurely, that's all there is to that."

    Like most serial adulterers, he enjoys lying and getting away with it. This announcement is just going to be more sidestepping and distraction and pretending nothing's wrong.
    He KNOWS how to tell thousands of baldfaced lies to a CHURCH CROWD. He knows how to betray trust with a straight face. The trust of churchgoers who are trusting their souls to what he says!

    Is anyone dumb enough to think he doesn't have a bunch of tricks that have worked well in the past and that he isn't going to use them every chance he gets?

    A) Let Gloria hit like a girl.
    B) May her aim be way off.
    C) May those tefllon skillets being strong be false.
    D) Let me fit in the dog house, too. Move over, Fido.
    E) Oh please, let that hot mama from the bar call me back. Daddy needs a place to stay.

    Hopefully he withdraws. He's disgracing himself and the Republican Party, as well as the great state of GA. He's taken a Presidential campaign and turned it into a joke, a circus act.

    Please Herman, just go away.

    He is just making a big deal about he might step down so he can get free media time today, as his funds are low. He isn't stupid that way. With all the media coverage he will get his message out there free. Even if he stays in he won't get the nod from the people to be the next GOP president

    In th e meantime, exhausted from beating up on the people who create jobs in this country, the people who actually work and pay taxes, the union toady in chief has announced plans for another 17 day Christmas vacation in Hawaii. You won't hear about that on CNN folks, like so much else this corrupt, inept, incompetent, union toady president does that smacks us all in the face. He is a lying hypocrite, but the liberal media willl never let you hear about it. There are Republicans to debase, demean, diminish and destroy. That is the liberal democrat way of life.

    Herman Cain is starting to remind me of the rooster "Foghorn Leghorn" of the old Warner Brothers cartoon. I'm
    surprised the political cartoonists hasn't captured his image wearing a cone on his head and tail feathers.
    The " I,. . .I say. ..I don't know what those women are talking about" routine is getting old. Herman should drop out
    now and save himself from further embarrassment. The hubris of the republicans has no limits.

    One thing to look for is a rolling pin imprint on the side of Herman Cain's head, which would be a clear indicator of
    how the "sit-down" with his wife went I bet the "running" Cain did last night wasn't for President. Nor out for pizza.
