    Let’s remember that like Sarah Palin, Cain is popular among the TPM and far right because of his being unpolished, perceived as an ‘everyman,’ and ‘not part of the political establishment.’ Indeed, as with Palin with regard to the Couric interview, press attacks on Cain are seen by the TPM/far right as a badge of honor, proof yet again of the ‘liberal bias media.’

    Consequently the press’ accurate reporting that Cain is not only unqualified to be president, and has no business being in the campaign, for that matter, will go ignored and rejected by the TPM/far right.

    As an aside, for those who say they are not part of the TPM or far right and support Cain, you likely support Cain and reject the media image of him for the same reasons.

    Cain was never a serious candidate. He was just the latest "fill in the blank". or the "Not Romney of the week".

    The GOP leadership should realize that if there is this much dissatisfaction with the choices given, they should really be looking to more choices, instead of trying to front-load the process.

    Instead, they are talking about how Romney can get this thing in the bag if he just wins Iowa? Really?

    He gets 1/3rd of the vote in Iowa, and he gets to win. Don't even ask the people in the other 49 states what they think.

    They are just asking for a third party to sprout up.

    This whole thing will shake out to a Romney nomination...
    At some point people will wake up and realize we need
    to fix our problems and not do Stimulus after Stimulus
    where Obama's union buddies get taken care of and the rest can
    fend for themselves.

    Even the die hard Obama zombies walking around chanting
    "YES WE CAN"..will have to face reality and vote someone else in.

    Stumbling? He's flailing around. Frankly, it would be funny if it wasn't so embarrassing in a candidate who's running for national office.

    But it's not like he's the first GOP candidate the year to look positively foolish after grabbing high popularity numbers in the polls.

    Palin (and to a lesser extent, Bachmann)
    Trump
    Perry
    Paul

    have all said some incredibly stupid things, but the conservative love keeps comin' their way.

    But the one (or two) men who come across as stable and reasonable (and I'm not talking about Gingrich) are not popular with conservatives.

    Conservatives just seem to like erratic candidates.

    What you clowns so disingenuously ignore is the fact that Herman Cain has already faced more scrutiny and answered more questions than Barack Obama.......

    Erratic and manning UP seems to have you confused. When is Obama gonna man up? Let us know when he does, won't you?
