    I hear ya. Anyway, Cain went on TV and said he didn't know her; never seen her before; it never happened.

    And in the end, if you want a job, you call up the guy and ask a favor, don't you? You don't really go to Washington DC to a "penthouse suite" and "Italian Restaurant" and all that nonsense.

    Before we start pointing fingers at the left here, I'd start looking at the other GOP contenders first and more specifically the Romney camp. This is a bit too soon for the dems to trot something like this out. This is more October surprise stuff which is a year away. My guess, Romney is scared and he knows that aside from Cain, there is no other to stand in his way so if he can remove his top competitor now, it makes things all the easier.

    No deflection. If he is guilty, provide PROOF! This is not news, it isn't credibly sourced. It is simply another high tech lynching of a Conservative by the lame Stream Media.

    I was pointing out the hypocrisy of the media and the left (same thing here), in the reporting of the non-story. If and or when PROOF is provided, I will give the matter due attention.

    That is a very insightful perspective most of us can't personally relate to. It casts even more doubt on this story.
    Cain's statement left him no loop holes, no wiggle room. He can't "nuance" his way out of what he said UNLESS he's telling the truth. That alone makes me tend to believe him.

    Yeah, that's what I've been saying. If this is all coming from the left,
    you'd think they would have saved it and let Cain get the nomination,
    THEN release it to discredit him in the general election.

    I think he may have met her but not enough to remember her. If I had to remember every customer in a one month period, I couldn't. Maybe one or two regulars or heavy hitters, but that's about it.

    Something is being ignored here. Sharon Bialek claims to be a victim, but produces no evidence.

    Let's turn this around. While she says it happened, he says it didn't. The burden is on her to prove her claim. Maybe Cain is the real victim here.

    She has two prestigious attorneys but isn't going to file any charges in court. Maybe she wants to intimidate Cain for whatever ends. Maybe she thinks that she might need defense if Cain charges her with slander.

    First, posit the existence of a “story” as defined by Politico’s editors — doesn't matter whether it’s true, relevant, or even recent.

    (snip)

    Second, ambush the candidate (in this case, a novice unused to the poisonous ways of the Washington press corps) to get him on the record regarding the “charges,” which establishes the baseline reaction narrative...

    (snip)

    Third, attack any subsequent statements as that most ominous of developments, “changing the story.”

    (snip)

    Fourth, watch with pleasure as the victim's allies edge away from him (after all, it’s not the truth that matters, it’s the seriousness of the charge), and he starts to founder,...

    Doesn't matter to the left if he's guilty as long as the allegation is out there. It SHOULD matter to us because if any of this is proven we don't want to send the GOP version of Billy Jeff to D.C.

    I personally feel that he is innocent, but all this "deflection" to how the left reacts about this just makes it seem like we're trying to cover things up.
    How the hell is a presentation of the facts in the case...and it seems the conservative media has found far more to discredit these allegations than the MSM has provided proof...a defelection?

    We see it in the DOD all of the time. I knew of one officer who spent far more time accusing her superiors of various forms of discrimination than she did doing her job, which was why she filed the accusations in the first place. Eventually, they put her out, but not before she had either racial or sexual bias complaints against everyone in her chain of command. Another Soldier, an NCO, used to hook up regularly with senior officers. Whenever she got into trouble, they could be counted on to prevent anything happening to her because of what she had on them. She cost a good friend of mine his career when he tried to counsel her about doing hers, and she filed false charges against him. The entire chain came down on him like a JDAM strike. False sexual harassment claims are a way to move up, or simply stay put. In fact, the Tailhook scandal was an example of it on a grand scale, but ultimately, when the smoke cleared, there was no truth to the allegations, but that didn't prevent the destruction of numerous careers. Tailhook cut a swath of destruction through Naval aviation, resulting in a shortage of trained pilots for several years afterward.

    Clearly, you are a prophet. Another one just came out yesterday.

    I hate to play devil's advocate, because I do believe Cain, but Clinton did pretty much the same thing with Lewinsky, and kept it up until the DNA evidence proved that he was a liar. Of course, Clinton was counting on the press to shield him, and they did their best to do so, whereas Cain cannot. If Cain is pulling a Clinton, it would be suicidal, and he doesn't strike me as having a poltical death wish.
