Gingrich holding that 2 person debate alongside Cain a month ago is looking genius as he continues to gain practically all Cain supporters. Romney's strength was a fractured "anyone-but-Mitt" field. This makes things much tougher for Romney.

Too bad Cain didn't run as a democrat. He would be praised for his infidelities and win in a landslide. Remember Clinton?

Where was Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson when Herman Cain really needed them?? And the ACLU. Same place they were when Clarence Thomas needed them. Go figure.

Provo, UT

well, Cain goes back to the woodwork. It will be interesting to see just how much of Cain's support Romney does not get.

The revelations about Cain do not say much by way of the quality of the Republican presidential field -- or for what Republicans want.

Not to worry(unless you are an attractive woman), about Herman. Soon he will be a Fox News Contributor; changing his traveling bus from "Vote for Cain" to "Buy my Book". His wife and family can travel with him(just like Romney's wife and sons do). Gloria probably won't leave him alone anymore. The Cain family can see the country, maybe even take the Book Tour to Europe. No more nosey reporters to cause "distractions". Lots of money left..
Maybe that is just how Herman planned it?

There were non romney candidates in the race?

And, another one bites the dust.

Who will win the GOP field?



Its too bad Mr. Cain decided to end his campaign. He made an excellent candidate.

Its refreshing to see so many Republican candidates offering good debates.

Too bad the Dems. don't get to have a choice. For them its Obama only. No choices allowed!

@1conservative: Kinda like with all the presidents seeking a second term!

What debates...

have you been watching?

I guess, conservative, that you are wishing George W. Bush...

didn't run for a second term, as well?

Then why did Republicans VOTE George W. Bush, into a second term...?

I'm sure, in your mind, your posts make perfect sense. It would be nice to see you find a headline from a credible news source that tell about how well the nation is doing under Obama's leadership. It would be nice to see you find a headline that shows a rosy picture for Obama. Do you think you can? Just one rule: No headlines from MSNBC. I know they are the party's Pravda, so it is a bit hard to believe anything they say.

Few points:

1) I haven't actually USED msn as my news source, so I'm not sure how you can 'criticize' me for it unless...

you are making it up. The first source was Huffington post.

Of course, everything is 'liberal media bias' if you can't present any facts.

2) You factually IGNORE the stories I posted from the Deseret News, which is a majority...

and they are owned by the LDS church.

and 3) You present ZERO facts...

and then criticize the SOURCE of another persons facts as 'bias.'


You are being irrational in your criticism.

And I could present information from YOU, yourself...

and you would STILL claim it was 'liberal propaganda.'

So, as such, there is no further point to debate the points of something, with someone...

who will NEVER listen, to what you have to say. No matter WHAT the source, no matter WHAT the information.

And present NOTHING, themselves.

Good day to you.

Cain, like all other republican candidates are of the highest moral character.

Roy, UT

I bet this "Other Woman" is a Liberal Democrat or on the Obama Pay Role? Just my thoughts... Get the Minority Candidate out of the race so Obama can play the Race Card! It will be a Smear Campaign by Obama, it's all he has to run on! Romney has integrity and character, he has that much going for him! I like both Romney and Gingrich with the Non-Tea Party candidate backing in NY against him, otherwise I like him! I'm still a Romney guy firstly though!

Durham, NC

KM - we all remember Clinton...... and we also remember Newt too. Are you saying he was a democrat too.... or do "conservatives" have selective memory issues?

And we remember Iran-contra, and WMD claims, and some of us even remember watergate.

So what the heck is your point? A conservative gets literally caught with his pants down, and you try to make it a liberal issue. Try applying the same standards to your fellow like minded people, Holding them to the same standards, and then you will have credibility. Until that point it is just more blah- blah- blah.

Salt Lake City, UT

with all the Gary Hart's, Al Gore's and John Edwards....you would think Cain could have seen this coming...what a fool!

Salt Lake City, Utah

Isn't it amazing how when a democrat is accused of some type of inappropriate conduct they are hounded and prosecuted by the pure as snow republicans like Newt Gingrich who led the impeachment efforts against President Clinton. When a republican is accused of some type of inappropriate conduct it is a smear campaign by left wing liberals. The most interesting part is that the republicans always allow their families to be abused for a while, and then they walk away to protect their families, except for Newt and he just keeps having affairs and new wives. Isn't it amazing that Newt is soon to be the nominee for President of party with family values.

You are the one who believes Barak Obama deserves re-election. Give us a headline that supports your belief. If you can't find one, fine.

You mean while President Clinton was hounded by a man who was carrying on his own extramarital affair?

I do seem to remember that.

""I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distractions and the continued hurt caused on me and my family," Cain told several hundred supporters"...
