    “Cain 'reassessing' campaign after affair allegation”

    I don’t know why, it’s not like Newt hasn’t had his share of scandals. It’s more likely he’s quitting because everyone found out Gingrich was smarter in the debates and his poll numbers fell off the side of the earth.:lol:

    On the other hand maybe he found out his economic policy was just down right stupid and wants to hide in shame, who knows what goes on behind the curtain of political bullshit. :dunno:

    It's the second reason. Newt is smarter and and has extensive experience in all matters he will come across as president.
    Now, who will be his running mate?

    Clinton had his share of scandals and his campaign was falling off when he appeared on Arsenio Hall.
    Everyone was hailing his 9-9-9 plan, even libs.

    As for Clinton’s scandals, he did have his fair share. Personally I don’t care one bit about sex scandals next to his competence to hold office. However I feel Cain's been shown to not be as competent as Gingrich in 1 on 1 debate.

    I don’t care what anyone says about his economic policy, a 9% national sales tax would devastate retail at a time when consumer spending is just beginning to recover, assuming it were still recovering by the time Cain theoretically obtained office and instituted it. If Cain can’t see that simple fact then he doesn’t need to be in office because he’s not sufficiently competent on the subject of economics to provide political leadership for the global economy (regardless of what business he may have ran).

    I have my headset on. Why can't I hear the Doctor Who theme song?

    Never mind. Fixed.

    Only on an internet discussion forum will one find enough Nerds to have a discussion about doctor who, people I know just look and go “what?” when I mention it anywhere else.
    Anyway I think Tennant was the best by far, I didn’t like Christopher so much and Smith is so-so, I could watch Karen Gillian on just about any show.:lol:
