Herman Cain Drops Out Of The Presidential Race

With the Republican Presidential nomination voting process to begin in just a few weeks, news regarding the dropping out of one of the seven candidates will surely change the game. Recent events challenged Cain, until he said he had enough. Herman Cain dropped out of the presidential race.

On Saturday, in Atlanta, Herman Cain announced the official end of quite an impressive campaign and the beginning of a new project, called The Cain Solutions. With his wife Gloria by his side, Cain once again condemned the sexual harassment and affair allegations as being “false and unproven” and hurtful to his family.

Because the allegations were shifting focus from his message and affecting his family, particularly his wife, Cain decided: “as of today, with a lot of prayer and soul-searching, I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distractions and the continued hurt caused on me and my family”.

400 supporters participated at Cain’s news conference on Saturday. The announcement disappointed and confused some of them. Janet Edwards, 52, said: “I don’t know where I will go now, I guess I have to start looking at the rest of them”.

The last bitter news for Cain was last week’s media coverage regarding a woman called Ginger White who said she had an affair with the businessman for about 13 years. In the beginning, Cain dismissed the allegations, saying Ginger White was just a “troubled Atlanta businesswoman”, whom he tried to help.

Obviously, with Cain out of the race, the other 6 candidates now stand a chance to increase their popularity. Frontrunner Mitt Romney has had some challenges trying to beat Cain in polls a few weeks ago, but he is now distancing himself from the other candidates by a significant difference.

A Des Moines Register poll, released Friday, revealed that Cain’s support was dropping, with only 8 percent support in Iowa, a significant plunge from 23 percent one month ago. A Reuters/Ipsos poll released last week showed that Gingrich and Romney would benefit most of Cain’s dropout.

According to polls and analysts, so far, Newt Gingrich, former House Speaker, has been benefiting the most from Cain’s troubles. Gingrich talked about the businessman’s campaign at a tea party rally in Staten Island:

“He had the courage to launch the 9-9-9 plan, which, whether you liked it or disliked it, was a big idea and started to elevate the debate toward big solutions, and not the usual nitpicking, consultant-driven negativity”.

Although, the rest of the Republican candidates are likely to try and use Cain’s decision in their own benefit. The truth is that Texas Governor Rick Perry and Minnesota Republican Michele Bachmann could really use a boost in polls.

  1. LISTEN TO THE KING;.” FIRST & FORMOST; I would put GOD back in the public, back in schools and back in the government. PERIOD!!!!
    Then I would make any AMERICAN OWNED oil company headquartered in the U S band from any political participation with any government official in the U S government . AND order them and the government to give up any patents or inventions that had been hid or destroyed that created engines or motors to run longer or get more gallons to the mile. I would stop any overseas oil, gas or coal coming into the U S. GOD has produced and is producing more oil & gas under these United States than the rest of the world combined. And only AMERICAN OWNED AN OPERATED oil companies would be drilling it. I would have at least 4 new modernized refineries built. One where the oil boom in the DAKOTAS’ is at. One near the largest oil reserve in the world located in the ROCKY MTS. One out west centralized to all the oil fields in CA. AZ. UT. NM. ETC….. AND ANOTHER ONE IN MISSISSIPPI. With a complete modernization turn-around on ALL existing refineries.
    THE OIL, under these UNITED STATES will never run out. It is continuously reproducing and scientist know this. WE/I would be selling trillions of dollars of oil and natural gas, plus coal to our allies AT A FAIR PRICE, helping their economies which in return would help us. Any oil company selling to any other country than our allies would be shut down or could move out of the U S and join OPEC. SINCE the U S will no longer deal with OPEC.
    GRANTED, I would have some of the best minds there is in this country (that are GOD fearing minded) surrounding me 6 days a week 12 + hours a day. AND WHAT I JUST WROTE WOULD BE DONE. THIS ALONE would create millions of jobs and make the government zillions of dollars and would FUND the military first, doubling it in size and strength plus giving all TROOPS a raise. Then funding the soc sec and medicare. AND last and least the politicians (federal ones).
    Now to go along with all the oil & gas revenues I would start a fair tax. 20 cents on the dollar. With no (none) not one cent of pay-roll deductions. SO its 10 cents going to the feds and 10 cents going to the state the dollar is spent in. For those of us on soc sec or disability of whatever sort or HONESTLY can not work and has a less than a $75,000 a year clear income counting ANY government money would have a fool proof ID card and only pay 3 cents of the fair tax going to state spent in. PERIOD!!!!!! EVERY PERSON IN THIS COUNTRY WOULD PAY SOMETHING TO THE STATE AND FEDERAL GOVT ON EVERY DOLLAR THEY SPEND. PERIOD!!!!! DOING AWAY WITH THE IRS AND SAVING THE GOVT MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
    MY NEXT ACT AS KING; would be to close and or relocate about 600 of the 900 overseas military bases. Locating at least 6 of those on our southern border. Just inside the third 30 ft high 20 ft deep fence with the middle one being electrified. PERIOD!!!!!! I would do covert operations as far inside MEXICO as 50 miles against any illegal dope heads/bosses/suicide bombers, etc….until the MEXICAN govt stopped them their selves. PERIOD!!!!!!!Now instead of some foreigner working a civilian job on the bases an AMERICAN would, VETERANS having first choice. AND new towns would spring up around those bases, opening every kind a business a town needs. HUMM, more jobs and housing. AND TAX. DUH!!!!!!
    2 OR 3 of the closed bases would be relocated to ISRAEL, providing ISRAEL wanted them. As would a couple in NEW ZEALAND and AUSTRALIA. NAVAL YARDS, AIR BASES, a MARINE DIVISION and a ARMY DIVISION, IF these countries wanted them and didn’t charge us rent. I
    may relocate bases (some) to areas where we have none, providing those countries wanted them and didn’t charge us rent???? You get the picture and I would have the minds surrounding me to help decide.
    MY NEXT ACT AS KING; would be to do away with the EPA, DEPT of EDUCATION, dept of agriculture, and probably the space program other than for defense and communications. AND I would do away with ALL grants and lobbyist, federally speaking. AND 80% of govt regulations of any kind.
    NEXT ACT; insurance and guns sold and carried coast to coast border to border; PERIOD!!!!!
    NEXT ACT; a private business owner makes his own rules for HIS business. If he wants to allow smoking in his restaurant or factory, so be it. IT IS HIS FREE AMERICAN CHOICE as his free AMERICAN business. ANY ONE CAN CHOOSE TO ENTER OR NOT????
    NEXT ACT,(WHICH SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE THIRD ONE IS) THE RIGHT TO WORK LAW WOULD BE A FEDERAL LAW. PERIOD!!!!!
    NEXT; ABORTION WOULD BE ILLEGAL AS WOULD SAME SEX MARRAIGE. REMEMBER GOD DOES NOT MAKE MISTAKES.
    NEXT ACT; I would build more prisons (plenty of them). AND I would do away with violent gangs. Members would go to the pen or be deported (AMERICAN or not).
    These acts as KING so far should get me through the first six months of my rule. ME AND THE GOD FEARING MINDS around me will work out the next 12 months in due time. THAT first act being abandoning the U N and moving it to another country. WITH NO FORGIENER having DIPLOMATIC rights for ANY PURPOSE.
    ROBERT WALKER
    HEIDELBERG, MISSISSIPPI………………………………………PERIOD!!!!!!!

  2. Good thing we don’t suffer divine right tyrannical monarchists. This is one of the most ignorant, ethnocentric posts I’ve read to date. Your reverence for this Judeo-Christian-Islamic God seems to have clouded your judgement sir. Maybe when a time machine is finally invented you can hitch a ride back to before Martin Luther tacked his 95 theses on that Church door where this sort of mindset belongs.

  3. @ Bobby Walker Yeah keep dreaming asshole. At least 2 million Americans are gay and you wouldn’t receive there vote or there family and friends who support them. That is why Rick Perry nor Michelle Bachmann will make this race, there to narrow minded, bigoted and alot of other stupid crap. Gays are not a mistake, ignorance however….

  4. You sir, (Robert Walker) are the least intelligent person I have ever heard contribute to the internet. Anyone who spent anytime reading your awful, misinformed, sacrilegious ideas is probably very sad they wasted their time. You shouldn’t be given control of anything and please do not raise kids with those morals. You are what is wrong with America. PERIOD!!!!

  5. If there was a God, he apparently made a mistake called Bobby Walker. PERIOD.

    That was hilarious though, thanks for that! Constantly regenerating oil! That sure will make the government zillions of dollars! I hope those brilliant minds know how to get it regenerated in less than a few million years…
