Herman Cain to endorse Newt Gingrich.
















It is being reported that Cain will throw his support behind Newt today.

Source: Herman Cain to Endorse Newt Gingrich: MyFoxATLANTA.com

I can't say this is really any sort of shocking news. Both Newt and Cain have been good friends for well over 15 years. Newt came to the defense of Herman Cain when Ginger White talked about her alleged affair with Cain. Newt said to CBS News that the allegations didn't necessarily disqualify Cain from being president.



It could be very possible that the endorsement by Cain could be a place in line for Cain for Newt's short list of VP picks provided he wins the nomination. Newt even said back on the 16th of November that a Newt/ Herman ticket was a real possibility. Those comments were also made before the sexual allegations truly started to take their toll on Cain's campaign . It's hard to say at this point whether we have seen the last of Herman Cain. The endorsement made by Cain could carry some real weight. Since Cain was backed by the Tea Party, his endorsement could help Gingrich bridge the gap with many who sees him as being the inside the beltway GOP candidate.

Pelosi is threatening Gingrich with the release of thousands of pages of ethics investigation testimony given in the days when Newt was Speaker.

Who would have supposed that the "congressional ethics committee" testimony would turn into the source of back-door press leaks.

...not very ethical at all, IMO.

I'll let YOUR OWN WORDS suffice as a comment.

I have no doubt that it was Democratic option research that dug up the dirt on Cain and leaked it to Politico. I bet Pelosi just may have something on Newt. It sad how gullible Newt was. He did a commercial where he sat right next to that screwball of a woman believing that they found coming ground on an issue, and now it has come to this. Since Obama can't run on his dismal record, attack and smear is clearly going to be the tactic by the left next year.

Once again, you jump the gun think that you have me in some sort of check mate allen. I have come out in favor of Rick Santorum as I wrote in my last post. Furthermore, I was giving an observation to the possible motives of Cain to give his endorsement of Newt. Third, I am still not the biggest fan of Newt Gingrich, and that hasn't changed. I did give Newt credit for defending Cain, but that is where it ends. So once again, you leaped before you looked allen.

Newt made the corrections on that by the way. A minor mistake based on a statement. Big deal. No one is perfect after all.

Ron Paul should at least be considered to over look all of the monetary decisions as an option. I like him for that.

Jumped what gun? I'm simply showing you what "YOU" said about Gingrich. You must feel as though you've been "checkmated."

You're the one who said; "I'm nowhere even close to being a supporter of Newt Gingrich". Suddenly there's no mention of your "not being even close" to supporting him? Suddenly there's a "bridging of the gap of Gingrich being a inside the beltway GOP candidate."

In your linked essay you wrote how Gingrich's association with Al Sharpton should put a "death nail" in his chances at winning the nomination. In addition, you made your angst for Gingrich abundantly clear as you would labeled him as a "hack."

Under normal circumstances someone who levels such vitriol at a candidate would refuse to support him no matter who endorses him. Conservatives who don't feel "checkmated" are still denouncing Gingrich. So i guess you're the "hack" now..huh?

However, this recent Republican primary race has been far from "normal." This latest installment is merely a continuance of the comedy of errors in a three ring circus of clowns.

Newt doesn't seem as conservative as he says he is. I just don't understand how he could be hanging around with liberal yahoos like Al Sharpton, Nancy Pelosi, and supports Al Gore's propaganda on global warming.
Whatever happened to the "most feared" Speaker of the House?

I'm hoping the polling data will be proven false come Iowa. I just can't believe that of all the candidates, Newt "hold gop hack" Ginrich is at the top. Conservatives are saying that Newt is smart and will destroy Obama in the debates. I take exception to that way of thinking. First, the assumption is that Obama is actually smart. He's isn't as smart as his supporters pump him up to be. Second, the premise being made by conservatives is that a strong debater is needed to go against Obama. Again they are wrong. Obama has never debated anyone of merit who was known as a strong debaters. He debated Allen Keyes from my state of Maryland, and he debated John McCain. That should say it all right there.

That's 180 degree turn from your initial comments in the essay Tyrone! You first comments were rather mild; "Gingrich and Cain are 15 year friends, a Newt/ Herman ticket a real possibility, endorsement made by Cain could carry some real weight, hack, hack, hack, etc. etc. etc..."

CB;"Second, the premise being made by conservatives is that a strong debater is needed to go against Obama".

I've heard that too, and it's has to be one of the most inconsequential and frivolous reasons for supporting a candidate. Debating skills are useful in a presidential race. However, if debating skills were the sole factor, you could might as well run a junior college debate champion.

Dam, you are so thick allen!! Quote me in where I said I ever supported Newt Ginrich!!! Again, what I posted about Cain's endorsement was from an observational perspective. My personal thoughts about Newt was never presented in my first story genius. The story was about Cain's endorsement and what could and were the motives behind it. I even said that I support Rick Santorum. Once again, no gotcha moment for you allen, sorry.

Wow, for once we actually agree. Elections are like one big American Idol competition. It comes to down to a candidate's likeability in connecting with the public, trustworthiness in believing that candidate can do the job and his or her record on the issues. Bush wasn't a great debater, yet he was two term president.

I scratch my head trying to figure out why conservatives are giving Newt the benefit of the doubt on this. You're right. He isn't a principled conservative. Back during the days in congress was another story. Conservatives have been giving me the spewage that people are entitled to change their minds. If that is the case using their words, how can they condemn Romney for changing his mind on issues but give Newt a pass? If they aren't carefully, they could actually snatch defeat form the jaws of victory.

Oh puh-leeeze... Quote me where I said you were "supporting" Gingrich! I never said you were! The only implication I posed was that you were a supporter of Herman Cain. Cain is out of the race and, as you say, will now endorse Gingrich. My point is this- If you can forecast a "death nail" for the Gingrich campaign, why didn't you come out against the Cain endorsement of Gingrich?.

I'm saying that your initial comments were not consistent with your previous views concerning a Newt Gingrich candidacy. That's why I linked to your previous essay.

However, someone who did not know you were not a Gingrich supporter just "might assume" that you had no problems with him, taken your comment from this latest essay. Just face the facts Tyrone, you didn't mention your contempt for Gingrich in the essay. You straighten it out with your comments, now move on....

Because I can care less who Cain endorses. I said it only makes sense that he did endorse him because they are good friends.

You quoted what I said several months ago about how I feel about Newt Gingrich. If you can pull up what I said, anyone else can to. Once again, the story was mainly about Cain not Newt. Pay attention allen. If you are upset that I am not trashing Newt when I mention Cain, too bad. You can pick up the slack for me then allen. When a story of interest comes up about Newt and I think his record or whatever applies to validate or invalidate the story, then I will post it. When I said that I hope the polling data for Newt isn't accurate, that IS BEING CONSISTENT with what I've wrote about Newt several months ago!!
