Nothing Perry or his people did would come as a surprise.

What a comedy show. Why are people like this taken seriously? Perry has no business being on stage, Cain is showing himself to be not far behind. They both need to go back into the woodwork.

I like Herman Cain, and if these are baseless charges I hope he continues as a viable candidate. However, I don't care which campaign (if any) leaked these issues. Barack Obama's team would definately have done it during a general election. That's why we have primaries, to ferret out all these issues and answer them before we play for keeps. It's obvious that Cain and his team need a lot of practice responding to accusations, so I say bring it on. Got more? Get it out! Let's not have any surprises down the road, and let's hone skills now that will be needed later.

When I first heard about this, my thought was Perry, after all, he didn't say anything about the Mormon church, but his preacher buddy did and Perry would not speak out against those comments. I really liked Perry, before I saw how he works, now he really gives me the heevy creepies. I do feel that both Cain and Romney are pretty upfront.

I've said it before - Perry's body language gives him the appearance of what I call a gutter sniper and snake in the grass. It wouldn't be beneath him to try to pull this on Cain, and furthermore, to blame Romney for it.

Perry's legacy will be bobble head dolls of his image.

Perry's campaign is now very desperate. If emails or other evidence comes out, proving it's true, Perry will be permanently sunk.
How pathetic.

If the charges are true, I don't care who leaked it. I want to know these things. I only care about "tattle-telling" if it is not true and so far I haven't heard anything from Cain that leads me to believe they are not true.

I think Cain should own up. He is the only one to blame for this fiasco. You remember when he said poor people are to blame for their problems?

Sexual Harassment? How bad can it be.....?

Can't be any worse than Bill Clinton, and he got a pass and today is hailed by the left as the First Black President! Slick Willy got away with horrendous behavior and brought shame to the entire USA....when the truth finally comes out, Cain's history will pale in comparison to Clinton, bank on it and the smear by the Media will once again show the hypocrisy!

Are these guys back in Junior High?

Yeah, I can't wait for one of these 3 to "lead" America.

Wow. What a joke the Republican field is.

I love how Cain now says he briefed a Perry campaign worker about a sexual harrassment suit against him while that staffer worked for Cain's previous campain! Priceless. He should really start consulting with himself to make sure he's not blatantly lying about something he said 24 hours ago!

I thought all of these allegations were lies, trumped up charges from the evil Liberal media!

And Truth, I guarantee if Cain somehow wins the nomination, and the Presidency, and can jump in and fix the messes left over by a Bush, just as Clinton did, these will be all but forgotten.

Even by the evil Liberal media, out to destroy conservatives everywhere!

Very telling that, on this thread--people only talked about who ratted who out. It's now common knowledge that Herman Cain was involved in a settlement centering around his sleazy behavior toward women. Only about two on this thread thought that was worth discussing. It seems as if Republicans are much more interested in what "someone" leaked, rather than the probability that it's awful behavior that was going to come out sooner or later anyway. Three women have come forward to say that your leading candidate is not the family man he claims and you want the head of who "leaked" it. Your party is in the process of eating its own, while President Obamas approval rating jumps six points in a week.

Rick Perry has all of my confidence and respect. It appears as though his main strategy to win is to throw dirt on others - the Obama strategy. Perry seems to be really mean spirited during the debates as well.

Yes, make sure and blame Obama for something you think he might do?

If they were baseless, why pay people 10's of thousands of dollars to not talk about it?
Cause honest people pay people to not talk about what didn't happen.

The sad part is that the Cain accusations (if true) are the standard for the Democratic party and when it happens they just move on like it is nothing, because to them it is nothing.

WHAT NOW?

Cain to Perry to Romney...

Baseless charges?

An adjudicated result with a finanical settlement is a baseless charge?

If the charges are true?

They are not "charges". This was settled in the 90's.

When the truth comes out?

Cain was accused. His accuser was given a cash settlement.

Smear by the media?

An accusation followed by a cash settlement is a smear?

Clinton's behavior was inexcusable.

So, we excuse Cain because Clinton was a pig?

It's ok, for Cain, to be a pig, because Clinton was a pig?

Oh brother.

What a pathetic group of candidates the repubs have to choose from. I believe I must be having a bad dream. There is one and one only that even comes close to qualifying for the office they all want and that is Jon Huntsman. This man is heads & shoulders more qualified than everyone of the rest of the crumbs called candidates. Problem is the crazy righties who are so far out in right field they won't even consider him. What a sickening mess they have made of politics. Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, Trump, and dozens of other likes have their party in a gutter full of poison! Unbelievable.

Having no inside information, I would suspect Perry's campaign as the trouble makers. He has been nothing but a loser with a negative campaign from the beginning. They appear to be a member of the party of one. They come across as saying, If you dont think/believe how I do, you are a RINO. Minorities need not apply.

I would vote for 4-more-years of Obama before voting for Perry. Isn't a smart as W, and would be worse for the Republican Party.
